An afternoon at the park

Still not entirely sure what I have done to my foot and it’s very sore – so not an awful lot of activity for Juneathon Day 12.

As the Blue One was a bit better today, his temperature had come down a bit, we met with some friends in the park as it was such a beautifully warm day.

I managed to do a little bit of football with him – mainly him running around and me just kicking the ball back to him! It was nice seeing him being more his usual active and happy self.

Not a bad step count either considering how much I’m hobbling!!! Does include the drop off and pick up of the Pink One from school!

I also managed 12 toe touches, 12 sit and reaches and 12 sit ups/tummy crunches (these seemed such a great idea each day when the numbers were smaller!!!)

Skipping Day 12 of Janathon

Now truthfully, how many of you thought I’d slacked off for a day!?! Hmmmm… tsk tsk!!!

Well I was meant to be going for a run but this has been rescheduled for Wednesday so what did I actually do? I found my skipping rope. Now as a kid I’d spend loads of time just skipping, doing various ‘tricks’ and rhymes – but I can honestly say the 10 minutes I did of skipping today hurt! My heart beat was raised and I broke out in a sweat.

It was also humorous as I skipped inside due to the lovely seasonal weather of rain so I had to shorten the rope so it didn’t hit the ceiling and so this in turn meant I had to skip with my head tilted forward so I didn’t catch myself – which I can assure you stings as the ‘rope’ is made of plastic and if it whips you – you know about it!!!

I also spent some time on Wii Fit plus – ensuring I made 30mins worth of exercise!

Aerobic Exercise
Super Hula Hooping – serious fail on that one!

Rhythmic Boxing Super Advanced

Balance Games

Training Plus
Rhythmic Kung Fu

Well all in all not a bad evening of exercise! Think the skipping will help for my prep for Sunday! I’m also trying to make sure I drink plenty of water and I’m cutting down on the amount of wheat and dairy I’m eating this week – well at least I’m trying too! 😜
