I lost my blogging mojo for a bit there, but yay it’s back!
At my poppits school, they try to encourage the kids to walk to school to save the planet, you know from pollution and stuff. Thing is it’s kinda hard to get the kids on board and it’s become a bit of a family joke now cos I say “come on we’re saving the planet!” and my
little horrors sweet cherubs chime, “and mummy’s bum”, nice huh!
Anyways I’ve decided to do something about it once and for all, so I joined a group 5k a day keeps the fat at bay! (anyone who usually tunes in knows I’m bonkers so this won’t surprise you) It’s an open group join if you dare here!
So far so good, I’m currently on day 9 and have had all the delights that the good old British weather has to offer, spring sun, wind and rain, and my personal fave snow blizzard!
So I reckon when the chips are down, the girl done good!
I’ll keep you posted and if my bum shrinks sufficiently I may even share a snap!
lol teresa x
Oh Teresa! You are just the cutest thing! You crack me up so much! First of all, I have to tell you…this is the first time I have seen a full on view of your kitchen and I am in love! It is so warm, inviting and cozy! Seriously, I just want to stop over and have some coffee at your house! Secondly, that picture of your kids is absolutely adorable! It just doesn’t get better than that! Good luck with your running! Seriously, if you are running in a blizzard you are one amazing gal!
aww thank you so much! my coffee machines always on and visitors warmly welcomed! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Just to say, I’ve just nominated you for Very Inspiring Blogger Award (although think you may already have it!?) I’ve written about it here: http://knitandpurlgarden.wordpress.com/2013/03/12/very-inspiring-blogger-award-nomination/
Thanks for being so friendly to me starting out on my adventures in blogland,
thank you so much, no worries LOVE your blog it’s gorgeous. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx teresa
Oooh thank you that’s so kind of you to say 🙂 Your blog is super great too!
Thank you. Xxxxxxx
Also loving the gorgeous pic of your kitchen!!! And your beautiful children 🙂 Well done you for the 5k a day and in hideous weather…it’s hard enough to turn up at the gym and train let alone do it in the elements outside – I take my hat off to you lovely lady!
thank you! lets hope I can keep it up I so wanna slip on a pair of size 10 jeans without a care!!! xxxxxxxxxxxx
Just got back from a run. I’m so glad to read that you are doing this 🙂
how cool is that! another thing in comon! xxxxxxxxxx
🙂 funny how that works!
I hope it does! X
I’ve been trying so hard to do 2 miles a day…so you’ve encouraged me to set my goal for 3.1 – that’s a 5k!!! Thanks so much…looking forward to hear how it goes for you. 🙂
I love your kitchen too!!! Looks like a party happening all the time. What a great way to start the day with a virtual visit to your house…love the little people…so cute!!!
thank you! yeah it’s one crazy party here the whole time!!! (mad house!) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I love a good long walk!! I think we’re heading out for one now! The Mom Person is taking off her glasses and putting on her shoes! Yay! Enjoy yours today! Wishing you good weather!
thanks still snow here, but never mind! xxxxxxxxx
Good luck! I’m on a get fit mission too at the moment but on my bike 🙂 (and possibly the pool if I can brave the cold!)
Well good luck to you too, hope spring comes soon! X
Good for you!! I just went on a walk but it was only 2 miles. That is about as long as my little one can take in a stroller.
If only I could jump in your stroller! Walking is great too. X
Good to see you back and best of luck with the running!
Thanks papa! X
oh! Teresa, so happy to see a picture from you and loving your kitchen, it looks inviting (loving those nice pink curtains & is that a kitchen banquette?) 🙂 Congrats on running 5K every day, wow 9 days already! this is so good for you 🙂
Thanks, pink gets everywhere in our place! I’m hoping I can keep up the running! X
Your kitchen is adorable! I love it!
Aww thank you xxxxx
Your kids are hysterical. I’m guessing the apples didn’t fall far from the tree. I love that they’re happy to discuss saving your bum with you. What a fun home you must have.
I’m back to “walking” here – in fact I’m walking as I type this. I found I just don’t get out and walk as much as I used to or should so set up a treadmill desk (here’s my post about it http://laurarittenhouse.wordpress.com/2012/09/27/treadmill-desk/) so I can walk while I’m on my computer. I have the opposite weather problem to you – it’s stinkin’ hot here in summer and I’m sweating before taking my first footstep. That’s why I say I’m “back” to walking. I stopped probably some time in December when I was tired of being sweaty and stinky all day (I’m on and off the computer all day so even if I’d cool down and shower, I’d get back on my computer later, walk some more and sweat some more). Now that the worst of the summer heat is behind me I can walk again. I don’t keep track any more but in the past 5 k was no problem on my treadmill desk.
Good luck with that bum!
I will be sure to check that post out! I really hope I can soon say 5k no problem, still waiting for spring here snow again now! Chooks not happy! I soooo hope my bum shrinks soon!
Oh how I wish I had your energy Teresa! You’re doing wonderfully to do 5k a day in such crazy weather (blizzards? woah!!) – Keep up the great work!! Btw, I love your kitchen too, it looks so warm and inviting. I can imagine walking into it and smelling the beautiful scent of baked goods that have just come out of the oven….wait…then it would be time for another 5k run again. *winks* xo
Thanks! Xxx you r so right doing 5k a day just makes me soooo hungry! Xxx
Just laughed so hard! Love reading your posts! 🙂
Thank you, I am a bit of a mad old bird. Xxx
I’m glad you’ve got your mojo back! I’m working on mine! XO!
I hope you do too, I would mega miss your posts. X
Good for you, I have sooo much admiration for runners… I don’t even run for the bus!! Hope the weather starts getting a bit more running friendly for you soon x
I am longing for spring sooo much! X
I love the way you’re constantly changing your header, keeping things fresh and new! Your poppits are adorable! And I must say, I don’t why your little ones are constantly going on about your bum…from that pic, it sure doesn’t look like you have an issue with that part of your bod! 🙂
Bless you, beleive me its there! X
Cute kitchen, adorable kiddies! Love the new header. Good luck with 5kms a day. I am trying to do the same 🙂 By the way, the blogging mojo comes and go with me too. Kids at school makes it harder to craft alot too. Anyway – your readers definitely want bum photos – what would the world be without them 😉
thanks!, i will have to save my bum pictures till it’s shrunk cos it would just take up the whole frame right now!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Good for you – good luck!
i reckon i need it!! x
you go girl!!!! 🙂
We do the school ‘walk’ most days come rain, hail, snow (would love to say shine, but that’s been sorely missing these past months!) I can definitely vouch for the weight loss benefits-especially if your struggling up hill through snow drifts and/or ice….I am taking inspiration from you and thinking I may give my blog a Spring clean to brighten it up-mostly to distract me from the miserable greyness that is our weather. I agree, lovely kitchen btw!
Lets hope we are not making snow eggs at easter! X
It’s not looking too promising!
I know darn it! Hope you have a lovely easter, wrap up warm! X
Thank you, and you!
