Well, when this post was started on the 1st March, the weather was FAB-U-LOUS however the next day and today it was NOT! Fear not, I can say both the sunny, slightly warm and the horrendous weather worked in my favour on my fitness quest.
On Thursday, we got lots of jobs done in the garden and round the house from cleaning and tidying to hoovering and getting potatoes planted etc. I also managed to slip in some step aerobics every so often. It was great that I wasn't intentionally exercising per se but really felt I had a work out AND slept very well that night. Sleep hasn't always been my best friend, I don't know what I have done to offend it, ha ha.
Within 24 hours of the glorious T-shirt (well T-shirt and light jacket) weather, it turned to "pea soup" as my friend described it and then got promoted to wet, cold and windy. As miserable as it sounded, I HAD to go to the shops and my goodness that was fastest I have ever walked with a all terrain buggy in my LIFE!! Again, boy did I feel those leg and arm muscles.
What I have found out is that exercise doesn't have to be about organised classes or gym sessions, it can be simply dancing round the house, doing the housework, playing with children if you have any or can borrow one or more (preferably with their parents permission). :)
