As I’ve said before, school holidays and exercise/diet plans aren’t a marriage made in heaven. Unpredictable weather, unpredictable behaviour and unpredictable moods (my own, if I’m honest!) plus lack of energy, irregular bedtimes and an absolute NEED for ice cream (again, me) means I just don’t get to lose weight or get fit.
But just over one month left before I get back into my routine. I am the kind of person who gets so very tired of routine but as soon as everything like school and clubs finish, I go crazy with lack of direction!
I got to go to the gym last week. Just the once, but it was ok. I’ve been suffering from very painful ankles and have a GP appointment in the pipeline to try to find out what is going on.
Diet-wise, things haven’t been too bad. I haven’t gained anything. That’s a positive! I suppose I do more walking now because there is a lot of exploring to be done on the beaches and in the parks we visit.
I would love to have the confidence to go into the sea with the boys. Not so sure about jumping off the pier with them though (that’s Sam doing just that below)! Maybe next year when I’ve dropped a couple of stone in weight. Might even have a go at making a wetsuit before then! (As I’m 6ft tall, it’s very difficult to get a woman’s wetsuit that doesn’t have me doubled over and those designed for men are not only in boring colours, but just don’t have the space for curves!).
