Life Now

A little life update.

  1. We’ve nearly bought a house
  2. My hubby has a permanent job
  3. We’re en route to becoming foster parents

As an old friend said, “If you’re going to do some big and stressful things, you may as well do them all at once!”. And we certainly are!


Three months later…

Haha so after bemoaning my neglectfulness, I post nothing..go me 😉

I feel it is time to update on my ‘Fitness Journey’ as I’ve been sort of calling it. Since January, I’ve been working out a few times a week using a programme pretty intense to say the least..! I’ve modified something almost every time – either because I don’t have the equipment or I just physically cannot do it (I’m looked at you, raised leg tricep dips).

So how’s it going…well, it’s going. At least it was until the leg workouts became too much for my still-injured knee (soo much jumping) so I dropped one day..then this week is a bit of a ‘meh do I really need or want to do that?’. This was me yesterday…


Mary Poppins vs. Workout…neither won in the end 😉

Although I probably am stronger, I honestly feel no different. My abs are maybe a tiny bit more noticeable, but the constant chocolate consumption prevents them from being too obvious. The BBG programme is all about progress photos and I can see that they’d be great, but I never took any so i couldn’t really say if I’ve changed physically.

Hmm. And there was me thinking that writing a blog post might make me feel positive about my progress..! Maybe I will go and get started on Week 10 after all…

Neglectful blogger…again

Wow, so time just keeps passing doesn’t it…since when did April become a thing?! Argh.

I’ve really got out of the blogging swing since I stopped joining the few linkies that I’d been doing. I suppose I don’t have a ‘thing’ that I write about…you know, no babies to coo over, no ‘family adventures’ to share, no house renovations to document, no major fitness journey that I feel so passionate about I just want to tell the world how great it is, and I don’t create things enough for that to be a regular thing. So should I just pack it in? Is this yet another sort-of-hobby that’ll fall by the wayside?

NO. I’m determined not to let it be that. There’s something new and exciting to be writing about which might focus me a bit, but I enjoy this little secret space. And it’s just that, secret. My hubby is the only person who knows me who knows about it. Not sure why, guess I just wanted to be a bit less self-conscious of what I post, but I’ll endeavour to neglect this corner less in the future 🙂
