This week’s Reasons To Be Cheerful and WOTW

By | February 12, 2015

Yippee! It’s nearly Friday and half term is looming. Nearly time for a break from school runs and the chance to spend some family time together – which is a R2BC in itself – hopefully without too many squabbles.

We have plenty more Cheerful things this week:

1. Jogging

Erm, yes me! I’ve started jogging, with a view to increasing stamina and fitness.

I’m following the schedule above and there have been achy thighs but I’m enjoying it.

Hopefully T and D will be amenable to a bit of jogging around next week as I’d like to keep it going.

2. A defender

D attended a girls football tournament this week and earned herself 3 house points for playing in defence. She struggles with team play and had anxieties in bucket loads over the change to routine but did very well.

We are a very football-orientated house as Hubbie and T are heavily involved in “the beautiful game” every Saturday, so it was a proud Daddy moment when she showed us her certificate for taking part.

3. Result!

I kicked a big phobia up the backside this week, feeling extremely positive about it.

4. Wellbeing

I am feeling so much better in myself, getting more achieved (rather than putting things off) and my doctor remarked on how much happier I was at my appointment today. I am, it’s true.

5. The Fitbit

I’m enjoying going for the 10,000 steps target a day, sometimes 2,000 or so over. I’m hoping to keep that up during half term.

6. A bonus

…to all this increased activity and happier thoughts is that I’m 4lb down in the last couple of weeks. Very pleased.

A word to sum up our week?


It’s been a good one – anxieties aside. Let’s see what half term brings.

Fabulous reasons. I really do think that exercise is so beneficial for our peace of mind as well as health and weight loss.
