Good Old Times

A Bouncing Bargain and a Home Workout

As you may know if you read Liam’s post (Trying Something New – Boogie Bounce Xtreme) a little while ago, I joined a fitness class which I dragged him along to called ‘Boogie Bounce Xtreme’.

I really enjoyed going and it was nice to get out and do something fun as a couple without the children. We have been looking into couples workout classes as well. Yoga looks like fun! I’m not really flexible, but I wouldn’t mind giving it a go anyway. You only live once, so why not get out of your comfort zone and try something new!

Even though I enjoyed boogie bounce, I haven’t been back for a while because Kiiara is a Mummy’s girl and she point blank refuses to take a bottle. She’s stuck in her bedtime routine which means she gets very grumpy if i’m not there.

While we we’re out on the weekend we came across a fitness trampoline in a charity shop. It was much like the one we used in boogie bounce but without the T-bar. For only £4.99 it was definitely a bargain!

I wasn’t too sure at first whether to purchase it but as I wanted to get fit and in shape, and want to have something for myself, I thought why not? I can also be around the children at the same time without worrying whether Kiiara is going to be upset .

I also bought some fitness wear from B&M on Saturday when we went to pick Aurora’s birthday cake up. I can’t believe she’s going to be 2 years old on Friday! I don’t know where the time has gone.

As the sun was out yesterday, we thought we would take a stroll down the beach with the girls and enjoy the view. Liam took some photos with his camera too. We arrived back home and I thought that I’d have a go on the trampoline.

Liam found a 15 minute workout on YouTube for me to follow. Some of the workouts we’re easy enough, but I struggled with some of them including having to raise your leg to the side, lifting your hip as you do it.

I ended up with cramp in my hip so I had to stop a few times during this exercise. Liam even had a go on it too which helped me feel less like a plonker just jumping around becoming sweaty.

Hopefully with more practice I will get the hang of it. I’m hoping to do this workout session twice a week. It does make me feel more energetic. I actually felt like I was accomplishing something, and despite not seeming like much, it’s a step towards taking a bit of myself back. It was a lot of fun to do and it was a bonus that it was in the comfort of my own home (prevented embarrassment, yay!).

I am certainly feeling it today though. At least I know it’s done something – no pain no gain I guess. Now it’s back to normality again.

It was a really fun long weekend. I actually stayed up later than 9pm (shocking I know!), which is unusual for me because I usually can’t stay awake. We invited Lisa over on Saturday. We had a chinese takeaway, treats, some wine and had plenty of giggles.

I enjoy having family that live so close. It was a fairly relaxing weekend. We definitely needed it.
