Bet it is getting sickening

I bet it is getting boring listening to me about my biking.

I went on two rides today TWO TWO TWO. First one was with the boys to the dairy to get milk (instead of using that naughty car) saves us money on petrol too woohoooo. Then the next one was going to Chartwell with my 6 year old to the library where we rode there and read our magazines and books and got some to bring back with us and then came home and my lovely lovely hubby made us tomato tartlets from the WW recipe book woohooo!! they were pastry and tomato and a little bit of cheese with salami and basil pesto OMG OMG they were sooooo yummy I was impressed.

So my exercise was fantastic today and I haven't gotten bored with it yet because it is bringing me closer to my boys.

Back to the routine on Monday with going back to the gym and the youngest is back at creche on Tuesday and I am back at work on Wednesday but I am going to still keep up with my riding that is for sure.

Put up the pool this afternoon and we were relaxing in it this afternoon about 4pm... got a little bit sunburnt I think (feeling it but can't see it being burnt).... felt a little bit adventurous out there in my togs and before getting them off I was in shorts and a singlet (shock horror to me that is for sure) I haven't worn shorts and a singlet in years as I have never ever ever liked ither of them as it showed too much skin and I know for a while longer I will not be out in public like it until I am feeling better. But... it was a big step for me to do it at home first.

I can tell you that I wouldn't want to be a full time at home mum because it is great for these two weeks but I would go insane if it was any longer than that.... how do you full time mums do it? I feel like a vegetable and I haven't had a lot of contact with others to get out of my square..... certainly doesn't feel like it could be a good thing forever.... yes it is nice being at home with the kids part time but I have felt that when I am here full time I don't want to spend as much time with them as I do when I am part time (if that makes sense).

BTW Helena glad to see you are putting yourself out there girl!!! You are an inspiration to me! You are a rock!! I am glad others can get to know you and benefit too! ;-)

Anyway I might come along later to update more if I can

Love Chubbymum

Lol, if it was boring would we keep coming back reading? I don't think so! And.. I personally think it's inspirational!! Well done on all the great progress you are making.. it's so obvious in your writing that this journey is not just about physical changes for you, it's emotional and mental as well - which is great!

Oh, and I was wondering if you could let me know where you do your digital scrapbooking, because most sites I've ever looked at have been expensive!!

I'll be thinking of you when I get on my bike tomorrow morning! YIPPEEEEEEEE

Tina said...

Thats so great that you're loving riding and getting closer to your boys!
And let me tell you, being a full time mum can be VERY challenging...LOL

Me said...

Well done on all your exercise and even more so on taking the step to go outside in shorts and a singlet - GOOD FOR YOU !!!! I know what a big step that is and you should be so proud of yourself for taking it.
