My Spring bucket list

Morning my lovelies.

Welcome Spring

Spring has Sprung & it’s time to start thinking about what to do as the months begin to get warmer.

Spring has sprung

Making a bucket list is a way for me to make a note of the memories I want to create in the passing seasons. They can be as cheap or expensive as you want them to be & some things you can even do for free!

My Winter bucket list was a complete fail, that’s what I get for not referring to it over the Winter months! Winter was a busy season! Spring will be different, it’s going to be even more busy but with activities that I’m putting on my bucket list.

My Spring bucket list –

  • Celebrate my mother on mothers day
  • Get our seeds planted
  • Help Richard sort out our garden & get some veg/fruit etc planted
  • Have our 1st BBQ of the year
  • Have our 1st picnic of the year
  • Celebrate my birthday with family & friends – Yay!
  • Go out on a date with Richard
  • Watch the stars
  • Have dinner in the back garden
  • Get our bicycles on the road & go for a bike ride
  • Visit a pick your own farm with my niece & her kiddlies & grab myself some fresh juicy ripe berries
  • Make my own granola (from scratch)
  • Welcome the Spring air into my home
  • Go for a walk around my estate with my camera
  • Do some reading outside
  • Try our local butchers for some good quality meat
  • Try 1 or 2 new Spring inspired recipes
  • Have a lunch date with a family member
  • Have a lunch date with a friend
  • Do a car boot
  • Help organise our Ataxia UK summer fete
  • Have a dabble in minimising my space
  • Host a girls night
  • Host our 1st games night of the year
  • Be a tourist in my own town
  • Buy some flowers to have in the house
  • Have breakfast outside (preferably with Richard)
  • Visit our local nature attractions – Beacon Hill, Bradgate Park & The Outwoods
  • Host an afternoon tea party
  • Celebrate my dads birthday
  • Enjoy my 1st smoothie of the year – here’s my favourite recipe – A taste for a Smooth – Berries go Bananas
  • Try some new smoothie recipes
  • Establish an exercise routine
  • Try out some natural vegan make-up &/or toiletries

I don’t expect to cross everything off my list, all I want is to make some amazing memories.

I hope you’re looking forward to spring, I’m expecting a busy one this year!

Bye for now.

Exercise, Treadmill, Yoga

My hopeful exercise routine

This post is one for people as nosy as me!!

I see loads of people, on the internet & people I know trash themselves in gyms & workout classes! Well, not me, no thank you. I’m not into working out till I can’t breathe, I’m lazy for one & heavily unfit for another! Maybe one day I’ll be able to run for 20 minutes on the treadmill but, right now, nope!! Over the years, even though I consider myself a go with the flow kind of person for the most part, I’ve come to realise that when it’s stuff that I struggle with, like healthy eating & exercise, I definitely feel that I need some kind of structure & routine (that’s why I never got on with slimming world, it’s far to lacks on structure & it’s so easy to cheat).

I like calm easy fitness. I love the idea of yoga because it sounds to me like it’ll help me concentrate on my breathing, something I’m rubbish at, I occasionally find myself holding my breath for no apparent reason! Random I know but I do! It sounds like it’ll also focus on helping me stretch out my muscles, I suffer a lot with cramps & muscle spasms (I assume that’s to do with my weight & lack of health), so I’m hoping it will help with that too.

I’ll be starting the week off with Monday morning yoga, the only thing I’m wondering is, when I start work at 9.30am it’ll be easier to do that but when I start at 8am, I may just wait until I get home?? Decisions, decisions??

On Tuesdays, I’m really looking forward to going on the treadmill, especially when the warmer weather comes so I can have the window open next to me & feel the breeze coming through. I’m hopeful that Richard will join me on occasions, on the treadmill & rowing machine.

Thursdays I want to throw in some kind of dance fitness, we have the Wii & my niece has the Wii Dance games, so I’m hoping to pinch some & throw my (not so) massive body around my lounge & hope I don’t break anything! Hehe. Or even throw on my feel good soundtrack & shake my booty to it.

I feel like I want to do more yoga to wind down for the weekend (I may be getting this all wrong & find yoga really hard!).

Over the weekend, I’d love to go for a walk (weather permitting of course) with Richard. Also, me & Richard both enjoy  swimming so we can throw some of that in the weekend too. We’re going to be growing a lot of produce this year, so the weekends will contain garden &/or allotment work (it all counts).

I may throw in some more yoga mornings when I’m on the later shifts & some more treadmill sessions when I get home from work after an earlier shift, I’ll see how I go.

I’m not going to be 100% with “I must do this on this day” but I want to stick to a routine with the majority of it.

If you have any exercise tips for a lazy exerciser, then let me know.

Have a glorious weekend.

Bye for now.
