Keeping fit and losing weight

With my kids back to school I have been able to reflect on the summer holidays and can honestly say that I have had a GREAT summer break! We spent a glorious few weeks in Barbados and were then lucky enough to head off to France for a week to see my dad, who has a place there. It was amazing, we BBQ’d, I have chilled out, basked in the sunshine and spent time with my gorgeous family, which even during the sibling arguments has somehow been blissful! However, I have a confession.  My name is Sarah and I have overindulged this summer!

Mmmmm, a lovely summer BBQ

Before the hols I was working out a lot as we did a not too shabby 12 mile assault course race called Tough Mudder in June! It meant I was training before work and really eating healthily so by early July I was definitely at my fighting weight and really happy with how I looked and felt. However, I have taken a break over the summer but am now keen to get back into the training and weight loss regime as soon as I can. It is my September resolution – I have decided that September is the new January! I am all about detox and getting fit again.

THIS is what I had to get fit for!

I am pretty lucky as when I decide to get fit The Dane usually joins me so we can eat healthily together and spur each other on.  It makes a big difference to do something with a buddy and I have friends who swear by Weight Watchers (as you can join with a friend and split the cost).

There are actually LOADS of cheap ways to keep fit like free YouTube classes in yoga or aerobics and being able to do classes online is a MASSIVE help if you are a busy working mum too. I have a friend who runs Sleek Technique which is a fantastic and fun ballet based exercise class online – think Black Swan!

It has been a LONG summer so now it is time to take control of my fitness again. I’ll let you know how I get on!
