Getting fit with the help of others

I am a regular user of Twitter using the handle @trainingmummy and i have found it to be a great resource for baby related queries and just general adult chatters. During a conversation on there I was motivated to get fit and lose weight. I have been aiming to do this anyway as you can read here and to do this I went out and bought a Fitbit Flex to help motivate me and get me moving and reintroduced myself to my endomondo account. As soon as I bought that I came down with a cold and so exercise went out the window. Now I am recovered I am determined to get fit and lose weight and now thanks to a couple of mums on there, including a fellow blogger (go visit her blog it is great!), we are going to lose pounds and get healthy. I have no excuse not to get out and about as I have two dogs who, although happy with 30 minute walks, would love longer walkies. It is also a great way to try and get my baby to sleep when she is fighting it. I tried this today and it worked. She slept... until we got home and in the door. Dash. Also the views you get when out the walk are amazing, plus the fresh air does us all good. Image I have been trying to use my sling more but at the moment Molly can't stand it so we are still using our pram, the Mothercare Xpedior but it is not suited to the more off road walks we like to enjoy with the dogs. We do have a second hand Quinny Speedi but it weighs a ton so getting it out and in to the car is a nightmare so this puts me off using it more. Once out of the car the pram is great - we have to use with car seat until Molly is a bit older - and the ride it gives is so smooth. All the weight it has seems to vanish.
