... get fitter, eat healthier, drink less, have fun with the kids... DAY 27

Mummy is here! I will endeavour to post daily but family fun and catch ups may get in the way! Hence my posts may well be to the point and functional!

Get Fitter
  • 2.35km walk to Daycare with The Cherubs in the pram! Bloody hell despite only walking I was a sweaty mess on arrival! Tad embarrassing when the Daycare ladies asked if I had ran there!
  • 5km run home after Daycare drop off! Felt like I could run forever! Amazing what a few days off does for you!
  • Lovely Hubby had a swim in the sea while Mum and Stepdad watched the bairns! We didn't swim far but whoa it's hard swimming with waves crashing into your face and the tide washing you into the shallow waters! Pooped my pants and yelled for help when my foot came in contact with something rather sharp on the sea bed! I was rather disappointed by Lovely Hubbies slow non existent response! No worries though, I expected my foot to be pouring with blood but there was no marks!

Calories Burned ... 700

Eat Healthier
  • Protein shake for breakfast (and Archie's left over weetbix) (not a spelling mistake they call weetabix weetbix here in N.Z).
  • Toast with peanut butter and jelly plus protein shake at lunch.
  • Small morsel of biltong before dinner.
  • Steak, potatoes and salad for dinner.

Drink Less (Alcohol, more water)

  • Reunited with Mummy after nearly 1 year I think I'm allowed some bubbles! No!!! Well I'm having them anyway!
  • 1.5 litres of water.

Have Fun With The Kids

The fun was supplied solely by the second Christmas brought from Scotland by Granny and Grandad! I'm not sure I will get much of a look in for the next 7 weeks! This evenings fun ...
  • Granny and Grandad picking The Cherubs up from daycare.
  • Playing at the beach with Grandad.
  • Opening pressies from Scotland with Granny and Grandad.
  • Reading new story books with Granny and Grandad.
  • Having bubbles with Granny and Grandad (fizzy water).
  • Doing jigsaws with Granny.

Poor Archie has had no fun! Unfortunately he is not keen on his Granny and Grandad! He has been particularly stupid since they arrived! He has cried and cried and cried some more! Not sure what his problem is but god forbid they look at him! Hopefully he will be better tomorrow otherwise him and Granny will NOT get on!

Must get to bed! Bubbles and a late night will not make my 5.50am gym class particularly enjoyable....

Linking up to Pinkoddy and A Party Of Seven for Motivational Monday!

Motivational Monday


  1. You should have just told them that you'd run. Is it really hot still?
    Is your foot ok?
    I think you're doing really well.
    Best that was great to see your mom.

    Thanks for your support on MotivationalMonday

    1. I did think about a sneaky white lie but I'm too honest for my own good some times!

      Foot is fine!

      Awesome seeing mum but need to think of a way to keep her here!

  2. gosh hard not seeing your folks for so long. You are going great guns with your fitness regime!!

    1. It's horrible not seeing them when I think about it too long but I just have to be sensible and think of the benefits of the choice we have made! I get a bit Tracy when I think about it but when I think clearly its for the best *crosses fingers*
