Janathon Day 10 – I Skipped this One!

So after getting in from church I did an hour of intense house work – where we’d used th RugDoctor on the carpet – I vacuumed it all, thoroughly! I also vacuumed the porch and the stairs! Cleaned some mirrors as well. Definitely broke a sweat!

We then took a trip to Bluewater – the Pink One and Blue One wanted to buy their own Buffs. But we got to Bluewater to find the Buff store was gone!!! Supposedly it was a pop-up shop for Christmas!? None of us were too happy, it was there only last Sunday – I’d hoped to buy a second one…

All sad as we couldn’t buy any Buffs today

We’ll have to have a look online!

When we got home I helped the hubby move the furniture back into the front room, where we’d moved it to clean the carpet!

Finally I did a minute of skipping and some stretching!

Step count lacking due to not having any pockets – so my phone wasn’t on me all day!

So not an overly strenuous Day 10 – but activities were carried out! I really wanted to go for a run – but know my muscles need the recovery time too!


It seemed like a good idea!

So for Juneathon Day 10, I still have a poorly little boy, so not much major exercise went on.  When he had a few minutes where he was feeling a little bit more energetic we managed to go out in the garden and play a little bat and ball.

Bat and Ball!
Bat and Ball!

Then when the Blue One got a bit tired and we came in, I for some unknown reason decided it’d be a great idea to sort out all the kids toys!?! Why!?! I have no idea…

How did this all fit in the drawers?
How did this all fit in the drawers?
How will I get it all back in?
How will I get it all back in?

I’m sure the amount of toys they have grow when you take them out of the drawers! Eventually though I did get it all tidy again…

Ahhh, that's better!
Ahhh, that’s better!

That was definitely a good 3 hour work out!!! There was also wrestling the first dose (of three) of antibiotics into the stubborn three year old boy – the second two doses he was a very good boy!

Finally – I did 10 toe touches, 10 sit and reaches and 10 sit ups/tummy crunches.

Day 10 and a Wii bit more exercise!

After a rather trying night with chicken pox boy (he didn’t go to sleep until about 3am – after a lot of wailing) I wasn’t very motivated to do much exercise, so I timed my manic walk up and down Bexleyheath High Steet.

I finished an appointment I had at 11am and had 56 minutes of time left to visit all the shops I needed – The Card Factory, Boots and H&M!

I was quite surprised with the distance that I covered!

Walking up and down Bexleyheath High Street!

I also recorded the amount of distance I covered walking around the supermarket – in this case Morrisons, doing ‘the Big Shop’ – but I unfortunately forgot to stop MapMyWalk running when I finished, and so it includes my drive home! Doh!!!

It's not call 'The Big Shop' for nothing!
It’s not call ‘The Big Shop’ for nothing!


Needs to be less 3.22km and 10 minutes off the time – so again, I covered 1.43km just doing the weekly shop, so not at a great pace, but still further than you’d think! (Well further than I was expecting)

Who knew
Who knew


Then for good measure I did some exercise on the Wii! So Wii Fit Plus !

Aerobic Exercise
Super Hula Hoop
Advance Step Aerobics (I’m not very good at that! My timing is appalling!)
Rhythmic Boxing Advanced

Balance Games
Ski Jump
Penguin Jump

Training Plus
Rhythmic Kung Fu

Feeling rather tired now, can’t imagine why!?! Haha!!!

Until Day 11 – cheerio!!!
