Getting Back Into Exercise ...

For the past month or so I have been upping my exercise, as pretty much before now the only exercise I would take part in was the school run!

I have been attending a local Barre Class with Jon's sister Jenni and I absolutely love it!
I'm already noticing changes in my body and I'm feeling much better within myself.


"Most barre-based classes use a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements." Also, don't be surprised if your class incorporates light handheld weights to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work."




I usually only do one lesson a week but last week we did two and I felt even better for doing it, so I'm thinking I may start doing the Wednesday and Friday class

I've also got a bit of the exercising bug and I've started doing some Yoga at home using a free Yoga app that I downloaded from the App Store.

I did my first workout last night and I've never ached so much in my life!
It's a good ache and I'm looking forward to tonights workout.

I used to love my gym sessions before the boys were born and you'd often find me there working up a sweat on the cross trainer and it feels good to be actually getting back my fitness.

I'm no longer feeling like a couch potato, I feel like I have a bit more get up and go.

I've actually developed a slight legging obsession and find myself scrolling through sport Instagram photos looking at all the different ones I could get!

I don't want to be the mum who people say 'yeah you can tell she's had four kids', I want to be the mum where people think 'omg she's had four kids!!!?!?!'

I know I shouldn't really give two shoots what people think, but we all care and theirs no point in denying that.


I'm hoping by summer I can feel more confident in my own skin and be happy to go swimming with the boys without wanting to hide my body away.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
