Reasons to be Cheerful

Yep, I shouldn've posted this on Thursday when the lovely Mich's linky goes up but somehow life has been getting in the way a bit lately. Shouldn't complain, we've been busy getting back into the daily routine after Christmas and I keep hitting the snooze button in the morning and then having a panic to get out the door but hey, that's January for you. Here's the reasons I was cheerful this week:

1. Happy Birthday to me! It was my birthday on Friday. The countdown clock to the big 40 has now begun. I had some lovely gifts and surprises throughout the day and messages from friends all around the world. Made me feel quite the special one. *Snif*

2. Commit to get fit. My New Year resolution to get fit again after 2 years of not much at all since DD was born is coming along nicely. The scales are stubbornly not budging but I'm feeling better about myself and noticing the difference in other ways. Learning to run again is a killer but takes it to a whole other level. Seriously.

3. Disney here we come! Following Stay At Home Mum Loving It's fab adventures in Florida we've booked to go too! WOOT! *Gets rather over excited and has to sit down*

Anyhoo those were my reasons for this week. If you had your own you probably already whacked them down over at Mummy from the Heart, but if not go and do it now. You know you want to.

  1. Happy birthday and have a great time at Disney!

  2. Love, once you get past the half naked people there are some excellent work outs on there. Love that they are short intense workouts, there really is no need to spend hours keeping fit

  3. Absolutely! Wish I could get a sandbag but the shipping is just too expensive. Still, the interval trainer works well and you gotta love that the workouts are free :D

  4. Ohh fab reasons, I am 40 next year too. I think there are quite a few of us. Happy belated birthday.  Mich x
