Keeping on top of my fitness

I have had a lull the past week. By that I mean I have not really done any exercise in terms of running, swimming or classes.

Here is what we did as part of our sleep challenge, in an attempt to get a good nights sleep! VIEW the POST

Happy to be home!!

The photo above looks unstressful, sunny and calm… But do not be fooled! Ever been on a plane with screaming children and said to yourself “that will never be me”? Oh yes, I have, many a time and guess what? Today was that day! I think it stemmed from a late night for Noah and a 6:30am wake up call… Lots of travelling in the heat and being, well a toddler! Firstly we arrived at the airport promptly and mega early, so 90mins after waking up with no breaky, in a check in queue – Noah got bored. Crying and squirming to get out, which continued until we stopped at burger king and had a sort of brunch stop. He calmed a bit then. Phew. Getting on the plane, Thomson decided we couldn’t sit together… Yes even after paying extra for the luxury and so it was settle in and…
