Post-Cancer Breakthrough Moment!

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

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 [...]

#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 [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 7

Day 7 and its Davina Fit in 15 whilst the kids eat their breakfast.  I don't always find it easy fitting exercise around life so I find this DVD amazing.  But don't be fooled into thinking, only 15 minutes,  it's exhausting!  And I am generally a massive fan of Davina and her fitness DVD's.  As I [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 5

I have had a lovely active afternoon today.  A long walk around the park and then lots of playing kick-about with the children (more tiring than I would have suspected) including even more walking to get there and home. It's not always easy to stay active when you have children, but it's obviously good for them [...]

#100ActiveDays – Day 3

I have taken things a little easier today as my muscles are aching SO much! So this evening I went for a walk.  With the children.  We stopped occasionally.  In exchange for sweets.  Okay, this evening I went trick or treating.  Maybe not the most strenuous exercise but I would bet that containing two kids [...]
