    Not sure if I should talk a little offense to the non-cancelling nature of Mellenials but I won’t lol (I am so just kidding) I personally have not cancelled 2020. It was a year. A year of personal growth. A year of time spent with T hanging out and having fun. I ended up working phenomenal hours and to top it all off when the new Curbside department was discussed and planned for I was top nominee for the role. (Lately all my orders are thanking me for my great service wheeeeeeeeeeeeee-a little bit of a ego boost there) It was a year where people had to stop moving so much and just be. And I am thinking that some people did not like what they have been finding that they don’t like themselves or their way of work and living but are so set in their ways that it is easier to complain and bitch rather than make the change. I am of the mind set that we make the most of our lives. We are the ones living it and how we view it colors everything around us. I was not always like this. I use to be one of those waiting for the next best thing but there is no next best thing this life is my best thing and I have to chose to live it and not just move through water in slow motion.
    Good morning Shelley I have written you another novel. 🙂

      Haha trust you to grace my blog with a blog post 😂 I absolutely love your novels -they give me something to enjoy even if it’s a 2 minute ramble. You’re absolutely right about making the most of life and living it how you want to. The biggest challenge is when you finally get into a rhythm that drastically changes over night! Heck if I could live life the way I wanted, I’d be living in Brazil, writing novels for fun and drinking cocktails by the beach 😂😅

    lol I was a bit excited too when we were all forced into lockdown. Scared as well but also excited. Glad I’m not the only one!

    Ugh I feel you! End of 2020 I really found my fitness groove! I did Heather Robertson’s 12 week workout challenge and when I finished I almost cried, I felt I had accomplished so much and even more so, accomplished something I honestly didn’t think I could do-much less finish! And then things got even more stressful and I started snacking again (at an alarming rate) lol I need to get back into it! Just waiting for the motivation to hit!

      Let’s do it together? We can keep each other accountable or maybe even do weekly check ins on our blogs? I know I need the support 😅

    Girl, I feel like everyone either worked out and got in shape or did the opposite, so try not to judge yourself too harshly. I am sorry that Covid got in your way, though. I would love to hear what workouts you love or hate, and what works for you.

    • Shelly DS says

      Hahaha yeah it just seems like most people got fit! Today I was wearing my maternity clothes to work and felt like I was gonna rip the clothes 😅😅 I’m happy to be alive to tell the tale though!

    I’d love to hear what workouts work for you! I personally love Natacha Oceane’s workouts even though I can’t quite keep up, haha. I’ve gotten into online dance lesson videos, especially the Royal Academy of Dance’s Silver Swans ballet lessons. (It’s called Silver Swans because it’s geared towards older people, but it worked for me and I really enjoyed it!)

    • Shelly DS says

      Oh wow that’s pretty cool! I’ll check out silver Swan as well, cause I really want to improve my flexibility. I’ll let you know what sticks 😅

    “We learn from experience and turn them into blog post” is just LOL😂😂😂😂😂
    Try not to be too hard on yourself, you got this and things and your body will eventually work out

    I’ve been saying I’ll start working out in my 30s. Oh well, guess who’s almost 30 now? 😂😅

    Please, please, please, share your journey with us. It might be my motivation to start.

    8 months, 8 KG huh? It’s not that bad… 🤭

    • Shelly DS says

      Hahaha you still have time! One more moon rotation is all you get to make that goal come right 😅
      As for my journey, I will definitely share it 😊

      • Bolaji Gelax says

        Yaaay! Looking forward to it.

        And oh, I’m not in a hurry to clock 30 👀

    Maintaining a regular fitness routine has been so difficult. You definitely aren’t alone. I am super envious of the people who have managed to use this past year as a way to be MORE fit, but that certainly hasn’t been the case for me. I am hopeful that it will return once life returns to a more normal pace. You will get back there!


I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
