The Start Of A Journey...

So now that Spring is here I am finally feeling motivated to get back into shape and be more healthy, I want to feel fit again and not feel sluggish all the time or out of breath after chasing the kids around to get them dressed. I want to feel happy in my body again and I want to feel good in the Summer when I'm wearing shorts or should I say it - a bikini. Ive never been one to worry about what the scales say, its all about how I feel when I look in the mirror, its so easy to wear baggy jumpers in the winter but with Summer approaching I need to start now. So I found a trail that I can get to and walk with the children - trying to go to the gym in the evening was becoming difficult so I've now made it work for during the day. I started using my single out n about pushchair with Isla walking but it soon was made clear it wasn't going to work, so I decided to get a double out n about and quickly avoided being defeated. I dug out my workout clothes from the back of the drawers, charged my fitbit up and off we went on our first walk. 

I didn't to bad for my first walk, and by walk I mean speed walking and occasional jogging, I managed 3 miles in 47 minutes and that was with stopping every time Arch decided to drop his juice on the floor. I felt really good and because we all enjoyed it it made me want to do it again today, so this morning we got up and shortly after breakfast we was getting ready to leave, today I done 4 miles (well 3.99 but shh) in just over an hour. I didn't feel as great today, my legs hurt from yesterday and I now learnt that it really is important to stretch before you go out. But I still did it and I am so happy that I did, we was home just before 11 and then we still have the rest of the day together. 

I'm hoping to do this at least 3 times a week, if I'm not busy then maybe even everyday Monday - Friday. The kids seem to really enjoy the walk too, they get fresh air, they get to see ducks, swans, geese, seagulls, boats, the occasional train and sometimes we can stop off to play in the park, stop for a picnic and even feed the ducks. 

I'm not wanting to lose a load of weight, I just want to get my fitness level up, and tone what I have got. I cant lose to much weight as my wedding dress will then be way too big! I will share how much weight I have lost, I'm also going to measure certain areas of my body too and see what I am loosing that way as well, and I will share photos, just be nice ;) please. 

Are you doing any fitness or have have any goals? Let me know if you are as id love to see what everyone else is doing.
