I've been trying to get back in shape for what seems like forever but there always seems to be an excuse and well life gets in the way but with the summer holidays just days away, I thought I should at least try a bit harder. My kids are a handful and some more so if I am going to be entertaining them for the next 6 weeks, then I need to get in some training. Rumours are that the heat wave is also going to continue so I don't want frighten everyone on the beach with the sight of me in a bikini.
I've cut out the coffee, alcohol, general junk and switched to vegetables and fruit which is working out quite well so it's time to up the exercise. Josie had a party that started really early on the high street so I decided to run back (stage 1 of my triathlon).
Next I took Charlie swimming because one of my goals for the holidays is to get Charlie really swimming. He likes to dive into the deep end and thinks nothing of trying to swim a length of the pool, both of which leave my nerves in tatters. He has the confidence in buckets but I never can quite tell whether that dip under the water requires a rescue or whether I will be pushed away, whatever I have to stay alert and close to him. (Stage 2 of my triathlon).
Finally I hopped on my bike and went to the allotment to pick loads of delicious food which will definitely help me keep up with the kids. (Stage 3 done and dusted!)
My new favourite photo editing app from A beautiful mess helped me add the titles.
