Before I got pregnant I was very much into my fitness. We had been struggling to conceive for many years and so I was running x3 times a week and eating healthy in order to improve our chances of getting pregnant via IVF. I felt great – so toned and energised. However, I’ve been having a love/hate relationship with fitness since having the twins nearly…

At this time of year – winter time – fitting exercise into my busy life is pretty tough going. There seems to be so much going on socially, plus the winter mornings and evenings are just dark, and grim. My motivation levels for exercise can be low – and I can find it a real challenge to grab my trainers and go for a run. Far more…

A few months ago Hubby and I had a chat. Not that one, but one about feeling overweight, unhappy, unfit and lethargic. We both said that we felt the same. He, in particular, had put on a few stone that he wanted to shift, and I wasn’t running anymore and felt so unhealthy and overwhelmingly tired.

I have written a few posts now about running. You’ll know from reading them that when I do it I love it. Getting out in the fresh air and keeping fit just makes me feel better.

Plus I’ve not been exercising or taking care of myself all that well. So last week I vowed to get back on it again and make myself feel better. To do things that make me feel good. Here’s what I’ve…

The 2nd of my New Year’s Resolutions was a vow to get fit again. To get back into running. You might remember me getting all excited and smug about starting to run again during the summer. I hadn’t been for a run in over 2.5 years (after having the twins) and I was totally ready to do something. I had a Mum-tum and wobbly bits, but most of…

I have a confession to make. I feel dreadful telling you this, but I need to get it off my chest. It’s that I haven’t been running in weeks (maybe months) and I feel so awful at the moment. I feel like my Mum-tum is back and I feel so tired all of the time. I’m sure it’s partly due the weather change; it’s such…
