Hello! I enjoyed a nice quiet weekend of doing nothing .
The weather could have been nicer though, it was fairly grey, dark and chilly for the most part of the weekend. I much prefer the sun!
I went to work to do a 9-5 but got let home an hour and a half early which was pretty good!
In the evening the parents watched The King’s Speech, but I didn’t really fancy it, and the boyfriend only likes comedy films so definitely didn’t fancy it, so we ended up just relaxing .
Oh and trying out my new nail polish,
(Shame about the dodgy nails but I am in the process of growing them still!)
I have a thing for nail polish at the moment!
This was a fairly rare Sunday because Gary was off from work and we got to spend the day together .
We enjoyed breakfast in bed: some toast for Gary and weetabix for me.
Traditional weetabix and a banana for me.
Then after lunch we headed out for a short walk in the woods.
We all dressed up warmly with scarfs and jackets but Gary was happy in his shorts and t-shirt! He begrudgingly wore his jacket for me
Where has the sun gone this weekend?
Nice relaxed walks are the perfect form of exercise to do over the weekend . Minimal effort is required but you’re still benefitting as its a form of activity.
We also came across a small herd of wild cows!
Thankfully they were more scared of us than we were scared of them as they soon ran away when we approached them.
We walked up to the mausoleum and then walked back.
It has a big metal fence around it because over the past it suffered from vandalism.
Its spoiled a lot by the ugly fencing.
Its difficult to appreciate how grand it is with a huge fence surrounding it.

After our gentle bit of exercise over the weekend I’m ready to hit the gym for a more challenging set of workouts this week. Don’t get me wrong, walking is really good because it gives your body a rest from working hard, plus its gets you outdoors. But there’s just something about the feeling after running that I’m hooked on lately, I can’t wait to get some new running shoes this week so I can try and get back in the game as soon as possible.
In addition to going walking this weekend, I have also been using the dumbbells at home to work on my love handle issue. I’m unhappy with my hips at the moment, they don’t feel very firm and toned so I really want to sort this out before I’m parading around in a bikini on holiday! Less than 2 months to go now!
My inspiration comes from a video I watched (link found above,) in preparation for last years holiday, and it really helped so I need to start using this Love Handle Eraser move regularly to hopefully see results .
Speaking of holiday, I also made a nice profit on eBay! I got more money than I imagined I would, making over £70 on a few bits and bobs which means more money for holiday clothes! I am so keen to go holiday shopping with the boyfriend in a couple of weeks, although I may be getting a taster shop this week because I don’t have enough patience to wait properly…
What exercise are you most likely to do at the weekends?
