It's been a busy week! I have really dragged myself about to get my Fitbit steps in!
For ages I've been saying that having the kids and them being young and dependant was the reason I don't get much exercise. And in truth it does prevent me from getting to a gym on a regular basis and so on. But that's not the case anymore. I'm walking. Walking LOADS! And a lot of it is with the kids or while doing something for the kids. Parenting vs Guilt (for spending my time on myself) all round WIN!
Helping out at Beavers on Monday, work on Tuesday followed by the Scouts committee meeting, challenging myself to a Wii Fit step-a-thon on Wednesday while the kids were out/napping, working Thusday and then dragging myself off out for an hours walk after the kids had gone to bed, and repeating that today just to hit my step targets with added yomp around the sport centre while taking Jack swimming (because they've started the re-fit the closed the main entrance)... Tomorrow I'm planning to up my steps by taking 3 of the kids to town after more swimming lessons - they are in urgent need of footwear for next weeks scout camp - and possibly buying a new bike for Jack so we can hand his small one over to Tom.
Oh and I seem to have volunteered to be a driver for the Cubs sailing trip on Sunday too so I imagine there will be plenty of opportunity to get walking then too (don't think I'll get dragged into a boat!)
Along with all this walking about I have also stuck to my Weight Watchers Smart Points like a Pro! Most days I have hit my points bang on. I've only had 6 weeklies and haven't touched my fitpoints!
If I haven't lost weight by my weigh in on Sunday I'll be calling shinanigans!
I need to start recording my measurements too though. Because I've learned that on weeks that you do really well but don't lose weight, you've usually lost inches instead! And that's fine with me!
I'm still feeling massively motivated, so I'm enjoying any boost this gives me (coz I'll run out of steam eventually).
Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
