Sometimes it's just a whole lot easier said than done...

Another 3 weeks has now passed and not much has improved on the exercise all. I took the boys down to Melbourne for 2 weeks to see Manel which was great of course, but it didn't really allow anytime for me given Jack didn't have kindy to go to and Manel was working very long hours. All I managed to do was one run per week. On top of that we caught up with a lot of friends and family and therefore ate a LOT of cakes, slices & naughty (but nice) food. I haven't eaten like that in a long time and it really turned my stomach upside down...which was actually quite interesting to see.

So we've now been back in Sydney for a week and while I haven't been able to get out and do a decent workout (apart from last Thursday with Jen at BBB - which was SO GREAT to get back to) I have gone for the odd walk around Centennial Park with friends. Personally, this doesn't really cut the mustard for me as a "workout" as I need to be out of breath, have muscles burning or be sweating to feel like I've done something worthwhile. That's just me though as I know that walking is still better than nothing.

It's been about 7 weeks since my last body composition scan and I can't imagine that much has changed since then given I haven't had much time to do adequate amounts of exercise. While it's annoying, sometimes it's just out of my control. At least I'm back to eating well...and my stomach is feeling a lot better for it!

My parents & brother will be back home later in the week after being overseas for a while and I cannot wait. I'm so looking forward to getting some help again so I can get out & work out....I hope they're equally looking forward to some time with my boys!!!!
