2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 5

Given I had fallen asleep on the sofa last night watching Suits (again) and woken up at 3.15am to drag my tired backside into bed, I was not so pleased when the toddler woke at 6am.  Thankfully hubby fetched the toddler and I managed to snooze on a little more whilst he fed.  The toddler […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 4

  The toddler woke at 6.15am and I brought him into bed for a feed.  After just over an hour in bed, the toddler started a pillow fight so I happily got up.  I actually felt really great today, with bundles of energy.  I got the toddler some breakfast and some cinnamon porridge for myself […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 3

The toddler managed to sleep until just before 6.30am, which was incredible and so unlike him.  I tried to think of a reason for this, but unfortunately I suspect it was a fluke, just my luck.  The toddler came into bed for a feed and we got up at about 8am, which was lovely and […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 2

The toddler slept until 5.50am, so we left him until 6am when the sun would rise on his Groclock.  He’s actually pretty good with it now, every night when I take him to bed, I set the alarm and we wave bye bye to the sun and hello to the star.  There was a story […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 1

Given that last week was a complete washout in terms of exercise, actually make that the last two weeks, I woke up this morning resolute that I was going to use the next two weeks before our holiday to Australia wisely.  That meant getting my bum into gear and actually making time to fit exercise […]

4 week holiday bod – Day 14

The toddler woke at 6.20am and hubby immediately bolted out of bed to go and get him, so he wouldn’t disturb me too much.  He brought the toddler into bed and snuggled him in next to me for a feed, which I sleepily did.  As soon as the toddler pulled away and started squeaking, hubby […]

4 week holiday bod – Day 13

The toddler was up bright and early (as usual), but as today was my birthday, hubby whisked the toddler away, as soon as I had fed him and left me to a couple of extra hours of sleep.  Granted this extra sleep was dotted with visits from the toddler to pester me for no apparent […]

4 week holiday bod – Day 12

The toddler was awake bright and early at 6am (I really must change the Groclock to a later time), despite having a very late night due to our delay in getting home.  I was shattered, but somehow managed to get up and bring the toddler into bed for a feed, without falling over.  Eventually, I […]

4 week holiday bod – Day 11

The toddler was up just after 6am, which would have been great anyway, but mum had already offered to take the toddler first thing in the morning, to give me another lie in.  Of course, she didn’t have to ask me twice, so I had that lovely feeling of turning off the monitor and rolling […]

4 week holiday bod – Day 10

The toddler woke up at the crack of dawn, otherwise known as 5.30am, well it felt like the crack of dawn considering yesterdays long day with a 4am start.  I decided to let him stay put for a little while, until 6am, when I would go and get him, it’s so easy to be tempted […]
