No more wobbles!

Missed last weeks #wobbleswednessday! There was a different type of wobble in our house as the little lady started school!! Well to be fair the only wobbling was coming from me, one week into school and she is loving every minute, was very disappointed this morning not to be going to breakfast club or afterschool club!

Anyway, starting school meant 3 half days so we took the week of work, and I took a week of 'dieting' although its not dieting is it? This is just how to eat and be. Full stop. Its not like I am going to reach my target and break out the junk, well I might for a day, but you know what I mean.

All in all it wasn't too bad. I ate more junk than I would normally but I moved an awful lot more than I do at work (resenting the desk job this week) and actually lost a little bit of weight not much but still. By Sunday I was more than ready to get back to some normal eating and craving vegetables!

I guess I am lucky in that I have a VERY active daughter (although you will frequently hear me cursing it) I hope it will continue and I don't want to discourage her. So, given I can no longer keep up with her running while she is on a bike, I have purchased a bike! Now I have not been on a bike for at least 12 years but am enjoying our wee bike rides together, for a 4 year old she is nippy so there is no need to try and slow myself down :-)

What's more it was a bargain! £50 from the very lovely people at who refurbish second hand bikes, so I can feel I've been nice to the environment.

So am back to it, healthy food choices with the odd treat thrown in. Exercise wise I have got my fitbit back in action. I struggle to say I will do this on this day so instead in a week I will walk at least 70,000 steps, do one cardio DVD, one Pilates DVD, some abs work and one run or decent cycle plus what ever additions the little lady makes!

What are your goals?


  1. You sound so very upbeat.
    Glad your daughter loves school.
    Will be back Wobbling with the best of you next week. Can't wait

    1. Thanks, am feeling fairly jolly! Looking forward to you being back next week x

  2. I too have my fitbit on but I've been very lazy this week. I can't wait for the kids to be back at school so at least I can get in the school run steps!
