I have spent the last year trying to get back to the body I had before children. Of course, most mothers find this really difficult, and well, some are just blessed and look amazing within weeks. I don't know how...they just seem to suddenly have smooth flat stomachs and are enjoying themselves on beaches in teeny tiny bikinis looking like Victoria Secret models......How is this possible? What is their secret, or are they just blessed? Then you have the other side, where mothers will show off their wrinkly bellies after childbirth and are then extremely proud to show the world. I on the other hand avoided all photos, certainly didn't take selfies (still don't do it often to be fair). As huge as you get whilst being pregnant you go from having a beautiful tight bump to a deflated balloon stuck on your front. It was such a strange feeling of all of a sudden getting jelly belly...it was like having waves flowing over you. I couldn't wait for it to go, even if it did humour others.

In the month of December so far I am now 303. Although I am gutted that I didn't notice my November ranking. Oh My.....I cant believe I got passed the 300 mark and I didn't even realise....However, here's the proof
If you blog about Food Items and Recipes, make sure you sign up and be included.
They calculate your ranking score by calculating your Mozrank, Google links, Instagram, Klout and how many clicks onto your blog with the Foodies100 badge.
I don't do anything differently or special to try and increase my score, I just write what I want and have fun, but its just nice to know that I must be doing something right.......

What do you think? I really liked it and I think its also very achievable. We are all encouraged to walk 10k steps a day, which I think is very easy. However, if you really do sit all day at work, and then sit in the car on the way home, and then sit again all night, then you will really need to start making an effort in moving more. (This was me years ago) Humans were not designed to sit around and do nothing. I was miserable in the evenings and then because of that I ate foods and not the healthy kind either. I was miserable because I hadn't exercised enough, and I was eating the wrong foods, and my body was in a slump.
Lets do this together !!!!
I'm going to start a food diary as I really would love to see if I can improve on it. I'm sure I can,but its also nice, not to actually forget what I've eaten throughout the day......who else does this?

I've been attempting to run this year but I've really struggled to actually run continuously, I'm much better at walking ....So I do what I can when I can. I do find that when I run in some trainers, I can feel every step or bounce up my leg, and this is not good. I was asked if I would like to try out Enertor Performance Full Insoles. Now this wasn't because they thought they would turn me into the fastest woman on the Earth, but they wanted to encourage me and help me further.
So many of us stand on our feet all day and quite a few people get foot pains. After a long day on your feet, the only thing people are thinking of is getting the shoes off and your feet up.

We have been on quite a few bus tours and every single time, we've all loved it. However, this was the first time, we have done the tour in the winter, so that was an experience, but we were wrapped up warm, and it was well worth it.
