Day 95 – Walk around The Great Park, Windsor 

I got to go somewhere a little different for my walk today.  After spending time on a literary weekend in Windsor today we got to go for a long walk through the great Windsor Park, with amazing views of Windsor castle.  Thankfully we have had a bright, sunny, relatively mild day and it was so amazing to get out in the sunshine and blow the cobwebs away.  Was awesome!

Days 50 to 59 – Theme Parks in Florida

Straight off this might not sound like an #100ActiveDays activity, but let me tell you… it is THE most exhausting holiday you can imagine.  Totally amazing don’t get me wrong, but also totally active.  I wish I had worn a pedometer although without I know that I walked the same distance in a day that I would normally walk in a week, and most of the time whilst either pushing a buggy or holding a child.  The muscles in my legs and bum physically hurt towards the end of the trip.

Pretty awesome way to stay active!

#100ActiveDays – Day 40

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

We were out and about making the most of the dry (albeit incredibly windy) weather this weekend and making the most of being near the beach.

I love where I live but if I could change something about it, I would move it to a shoreline, I just love the beach and (probably weirdly), especially in the cold, when it is deserted and in my mind, even more beautiful.

So whilst visiting Norfolk with all the family, a walk on the beach was firmly on the agenda and was made even more magical by a certain seal following us up and down the shoreline, popping its head out every few seconds to see what we were all up too!

An awesome way to spend my 40th active day!

These boots are made for walking!

A wonderful day walking today with all the family around a national park, full of deer, lakes and beauty.  Am hoping to do more than walking soon but if you are walking…. this is worth visiting!! Just check out these pics…

#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.

#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 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!

#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
