This morning I went on a walk round a local country park, which is quite unusual for me. But i've been trying to be a bit more active - not go mad but be more active rather than dragging my sorry backside to gym. So have been go on wii fit, my fitness coach and this week we cheer. I also bought a pedometer and "My health coach" for my DS. It was one of the challenges from my health coach that was the reason for my walk. So I picked up my ipod set it to shuffle and off I went.
Ended up thinking about a lot of things hence this blog.
Firstly my ipod
Ok so its an older ipod and slightly bigger the one of the same gb that you get now but its just me and its got all my stuff on it. Like you have a cd collection there's stuff on here that never made it into a physical cd collection. As Mark now has an iphone I can have his ipod (which incidentally I bought for him) but its just not me and it would take me hours and hours to "pimp" his pod to get ths stuff I want on there, so I stick with my faithful ipod.
As I mentionned i'm trying to be a bit more active cos I can find it a real chore to go to the gym so if I can be a little more active everyday then I think I could exchange that for visits to the gym, cos I don't necessarily want to lose weight just stay healthy. Now I am currently very lucky to have free membership to esporta through my job but the gym in general just doesn't inspire me and its an effort most of the time to drag my sorry backside there and I get very very bored. So getting outside and walking or cycling is a much better option. I drive past various woodlands and country parks on my way to and from work that I've never explored so this morning that exactly what I did and it was really quite nice, It wasn't overly sunny, but it wasn't overcast and it was a moderate temperature so it made for a pleasant walk.
I spend most of the day every week day by myself, which i've evaluated recently can actually get quite lonely. I'm in a unique position in that the girls are at school during the day and so I have most of my day free, but am "on call" as it were should they be taken ill, have a teacher training day and such like, so I have to be flexible. When I have kids of my own by the time they are the girls age I imagine I will be working so I won't be in this situation but even if I am then I'll be in my local area with people I know and jobs to do and people to meet, but due to me working and living in 2 different areas it leads to either usuing extra diesel or spending a lot of time on my own. Recently I've refound my love of msn simply because its that little bit of adult communication that I crave. So instead of going shopping and constantly spending money, I'm trying to use my time constructively and usefully (doesn't always work but at tleast at
the moment the intention is there.
Whilst walking I'm aware of something in my shoe which actually sadly as it may seem led me to think about my trainers - now although I wouldn't like to I could do without my heels, but I couldn't do without my trainers. I very seldom have run of the mill white sports trainers. They're usually trainers come walking shoes which are suitable for most terrain, so unlike a lot of girls most days I don't/ don't have to plan my footwear, I just put them on and off I go.
My current pair;
So there you have it a proper blog for once. Did take a couple of pics to put on her for my 1 photo a day challenge but have put these on instead.
