#100ActiveDays – Day 33

#100ActiveDays, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

Again this is actually yesterday…..

I am going to put my normal day as it was stupidly active and I have actually woken up with aching muscles this morning.  I did not sit down ALL DAY!

Started by getting up at 6am – yes 6! – with the kids, decorating cakes, tidying, looking after them, getting everything sorted.  By 9am I was at the hall helping my fellow NCT lovelies get the hall ready for the NCT Christmas Party.  I then spent 2 hours assisting/enjoying the party and another hour helping put everything away.

Straight in the car to a kid’s birthday party – anyone who has little children will know what an all-encompassing, completely exhausting thing it is to ‘be’ at a children’s birthday party.  Was there till 4pm.

At which point I finally got to sit down, completely exhausted.  One seriously enjoyable and very active day!!

#100ActiveDays – Day 30

#100ActiveDays, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

This is actually a day behind so I will post again tomorrow but yesterday – bit more dog walking with my baby girl.  For a non-dog-owner, I do like walking a dog, but I must be honest, I especially like that the dog then makes someone else’s boot all messy.  I would say it’s not too dissimilar to being an aunt of little kids and getting to hand them back when they start crying! 🙂

We walked all through the woods near where I live and I am lucky because they are lots of gorgeous places to walk around me, especially at this time of year.

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 active over the next 74 days but do keep them coming and I will let you know how I am getting on shortly.

#100ActiveDays – Day 23

#100ActiveDays, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

These boots are made for walking….  I have actually got some new walking boots as I am doing so much of it in such horrendous weather, my feet can at least stay nice and dry.

As much as I love walking – and I do – I am seriously looking for some “out there” activities and I want you lovely people to be involved.  So here is what I want YOU to do….

CHALLENGE ME!

Yes, challenge me to do some sort of activity and I will try my hardest to get involved in it within my #100ActiveDays

Think of me as Harpenden’s answer to the funny guy they have on BBC Breakfast trying all the weird and wonderful sports!

Just a quick note that I HATE HEIGHTS!  Seriously.  It’s quite a new thing, started in my 20’s but anyway, I really do, so if you were to recommend some sort of abseiling or sky diving type activity, I can tell you now, I aint doing it!

Also, despite my best efforts, I don’t have a money tree, may be worth bearing in mind?!

So come on peeps, what would you like to see me doing?  Scroll right to the end of the page and leave a comment or you can Facebook or Tweet me your ideas and I promise I am going to try to do as many of them as possible!

#100ActiveDays – Day 17

#100ActiveDays, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

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 box below and let me know!

Thanks peeps x

#100ActiveDays – Day 15

#100ActiveDays, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

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 thing I have learnt over the last few years, it’s to listen to my body.

To keep things even I am going to continue with today as day 15 so I’m not missing out on the grand scheme of things!

Day 15 is walking & getting back into things!

Day 14 – The day of rest!

I am not feeling very well today, seem to have this cough/cold/feeling a bit rough thing my kids have been battling with the last few days.  I did walk journeys I would normally have taken the car for so in that aspect I was more active than I would have been but otherwise, bit of a rest day!

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 an amazing sunrise to run to this morning….

#100ActiveDays – Day 13

#100ActiveDays, Health & Beauty, Journey Back to Health

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 working so much more.

Another thing I discovered today – roller skating makes your back & shoulders seriously ache the next day! Still worth it though

#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 quickly.  It was just as much fun as it was when I was 12 meaning it didn’t feel like working out, although the amount my legs are already aching, I know I did!!

Day 9, 10 and 11 I continued with my Davina DVD which is proving to be a God send for when its harder to get out or pouring down with rain!  But I am looking for more slightly unusual things to do – mix it up a bit so leave any ideas you have in the comments box which is at the bottom of the page, thanks!
