#100ActiveDays – Day 26

Day 26 - Dog Walking I don't actually have a dog, but my friend does so I was able to take advantage of the surprisingly wonderful weather today and go dog walking with all the children.  Even managed to fit in a touch of tree climbing! I have had some awesome 'challenges' to keep me [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 17

It's cold, it's dark, it's miserable, it's not exercise outside weather, but no drama - I have Davina which I am still loving.  I would quite like to get some more exercise DVD's though as I find them really good in this weather, around the kids etc… so please leave a message in the comments [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 15

Day 15 - getting rid of an awful cough & cold and Walking! I haven't written for a few days as I have been nursing a horrible cough & cold. I have still remained active, walking journeys I would normally drive etc but haven't quite felt up to the normal activities. If there is one [...]

It can be strange when you are going through something quite massive - but I am sure it is not unique to me and can be applied to any situation - that sometimes the biggest breakthroughs or realisations (good and bad) can come out in the strangest of ways.  Like after my mum died, I didn't really [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 14

#100ActiveDays – Day 13

Day 13 - Keep on Running I went running early doors this morning.  I must admit there is something very wonderful about running whilst the rest of the neighbourhood (except the bankers who are already on their way to work - and there are A LOT in my area) are just stirring. Plus I had [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 13

Day 13 is the day of walking! Just over an hour to be precise and I kept it at a high pace. I made a point of keeping my posture really good, something I am generally shockingly bad at! Shoulders back, stomach muscles (what I have of them) tight... I could feel all my muscles [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 12

Day 12 - Roller City, Roller Baby! Today was something a little different - ROLLER SKATING! Was awesome, went with the kids to Roller City, they have a family time so perfect.  My kids had never been but picked it up surprisingly quickly and although I haven't roller skated in about 20 years, it came back [...]
