I think there comes a time in many peoples lives when they just accept that they're not athletic. I've known for a while now that getting sweaty in the pursuit of fitness does not come naturally to me. I tell myself that a nearly full time job and two small kiddie winks is the reason I don't work out a lot. But, to be honest, when I was footloose and fancy free I was a lazy moo. I've always been fairly slim, (apart from at the moment, at the moment my bum is definitely on the peachy side) so I haven't felt the imperative to work out frequently. I wasn't really encouraged to exercise as a teenager and was always too self conscious to work out in front of other people. A classic recipe for exercise avoidance. Having said all that, historically I've managed to dip in and out of a regime of some kind. The gym, walking, ballet, riding, tennis, mountain biking - I've done it all in small doses, keeping my stamina ticking over.
This poor blog has been left to its own devices over the last ten months. It's been simmering away in the background waiting for me to come back. Nice people have still dropped by for a visit from time to time, but I've not been able to invest any time in writing, so the pages haven't been updated with tasty new tid bits. So, now I've resolved to nurture it back to health.
Much like the human body, a blog needs fuel, tlc and lots of attention in order to thrive. It also needs a healthy injection of 'interesting content', so I intend to focus some of my free time (ha ha) into this endeavour! When I'm not making train sets or changing nappies, commuting to work or studying (not showing off about my busy-ness, just facts, people) I'll have a creative splurge right here.
Over the past almost a year I've been rather busy with my gorgeous little herberts, with work and with moving house. Thinking back, the last time I wrote a blog post was just prior to putting my old house on the market, so no wonder this little site got pushed back to the recesses of my brain. Right then, onwards to blog writing nirvana. I promise to deliver some amusing, informative, sometimes nonsensical blog posts that might entertain for 5 minutes, as you take a break from your own personal chaos!
I'm Sophie, a Mum of two small boys. I blog about food & nutrition, health, children, my body (not in a wierd way), stress and general observations about stuff that goes down when you're on the mum/work/mum treadmill.
