Losing Motivation & Visiting The Ducks

I’ve been really struggling this winter to find the motivation for adventures. Our year last year was so busy and full of fun exciting things that when the cold hit, I wanted to hibernate through it and chill out. P2 had a full month off nursery and we got into a bit of a lazy routine of pyjama days, movies …

Jump In Trampoline Arena Tonbridge Review

This past year Hubby and I have been making such a huge effort to go on little adventures where we find brand new things for the girls to do. We are sort of testing out all the local attractions to find our favourite destinations for days out or rainy day activities. I was recently made aware of a new trampoline …

Can You Rely On Fitbits?

You can’t deny the popularity of the Fitbit. It has raced onto the scene and become a brand and device that is used as a shorthand term for this whole sector of wearable fitness technology, much the same way as iPad is used as a catch all term for tablet computers and ‘Hoover’ for vacuum cleaners.  In 2015 alone it …

Chocolate & Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe

I don’t own a full length mirror. I’m not tall enough to see into our bathroom one and so I put up with a hand held one for my makeup in a poorly lit hall way. That’s how I dress myself each morning, relying on a quick glimpse in a shop window to double check I actually look half decent …

A Film Night At The School

Every year P1s school hosts a film night. She’s always wanted to go but for some reason or other we just never have. I’m blaming it on having two other young ones, not being able to drive the previous years and having a pretty strict bedtime. She missed Frozen in Reception and then How To Train A Dragon last year. …

My Detox With Slimming Solutions Teatox Review

I am still nowhere near my weight goal or my body image goal despite what people think and receiving the compliments is fantastic but it doesn’t stop how I see myself in the mirror and in photos. I don’t want to accept my body the way it is and I do honestly feel like that but I struggle with motivation …

Letter To My Princess 1 – 6 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, I’ve been really disappointed with your behaviour lately. To the point we’ve been to see the doctors because I know this just isn’t normal behaviour for a 6 year old. We have a few next steps and I hope that you are just in a very awful stage at the moment. You’ve been so doting on …

Fitbit Flex Review

When I started my weight loss journey I was a bit of a virgin to anything health related and I certainly wasn’t bothered by how many steps I took each day. Gradually I’ve watched my weight slowly come down and I’ve been feeling far more energised recently. I’ve been wearing a Fitbit Flex for nearly two months now and I …

FlipBelt Nuclear Yellow Review

I stopped running for a little bit the past few weeks. Life and blog work has been super busy, I wanted to focus on the children a bit more and enjoy everything. But with the weather so beautiful I have started running again and have been using my new FlipBelt too. When I first started running I never even thought …

Journey To Fit with the Fitbit Flex

My fitness goal has really changed since I started my Healthy Habit with Juice Plus. When I first began I weighed 46.2kg and initially my journey was solely to lose some weight. Technically, my BMI was in the healthy range for my height so I didn’t really know how much I wanted to lose. I still don’t. In just over …

My Sunday Photo – 10/05/2015

I have taken a real back seat on the healthy eating and exercise thing which is certainly not what I wanted to do as I have a dress to fit in for a wedding in two weeks. But I have and I’m quite ashamed really. Yesterday, the postman delivered to me two exciting fitness related things for me; my new …

McDonald’s Football Mum Of The Year Awards

We are yet to embark on the life of school clubs and other hobby related activities. P1 just isn’t that type of girl and certainly isn’t an active person due to her hypermobility. However, we were recently invited to a local Football Club to meet former Team GB Captain and Arsenal Ladies Defender Casey Stoney as part of the drive …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 12

I started my weight loss journey 12 weeks ago nearly 13 this Thursday. I haven’t updated for a month and that’s mainly because the Juice Plus Journey, healthy eating and exercise has sort of gone to pot. Ok, I’ve still been exercising usually every day for 10 minutes or every other day so that I’ve stuck to. But for nearly …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 8

My weigh in this week was:   Ive finished 8 weeks of Juice Plus. I’m actually really disappointed with my results and I can only blame myself. This was me at the beginning of January, 8 weeks ago: And this is me now: (please excuse the awful photo quality, I had manual focused it on a timer and when loading …
