Walking in the local countryside

It is time to get walking and lose weight

Over nine and a half months ago I gave birth. Within weeks I was back down to my pre-pregnancy weight but now, months on, I am still at the same weight.

I would be happy if I had been a normal weight before I was pregnant but I am not and I need to lose weight, and I need to lose weight right now.



I have spoken about losing weight in the past here, here and here but I have yet managed to really stick to any real regime but for the last two days I have enjoyed going out for a walk at our local nature reserve.

The walk is lovely and one we used to enjoy with the dogs before we had Molly and for some reason we just haven't kept going. That was until I suggest to a local Facebook group that I have set up for local mums to meet and walk that we went round the loch.

On Thursday I set off in a dull but dry day but as I got closer to the loch it got wetter and wetter so I fully expected to be the only person to attend the walk, which was fine as I had my dogs and Molly for company.

When I got to the car park another local mummy had turned up with her 10 week old and it was lovely to get to know another mum whilst enjoying the scenery and getting some fresh air.

We were so lucky as the rain stayed off for the whole time we walked. It was great to get to enjoy such wonderful scenery and the babies enjoyed the fresh air.



Today we decided that we would take the dogs a walk and so we decided to pop down the loch again as it has been a long time since the hubby had been there and I had enjoyed being there so much yesterday. This time it was a bit wetter but nothing too heavy and only really raining at the start of the walk. Despite this the Cosatto Giggle coped extremely well and the only ill effects was the mud that covered the pram at the end of the walk.

Molly enjoyed watching the dogs running about until she dropped off to sleep and the dogs just loved every moment of their walk. It was much wetter and muddier this time but that didn't really effect us in any way.



Today we saw some deer running to the water, many swans and ducks, and no other humans. It was bliss. The dogs went for a swim and me and hubby just enjoyed stretching out legs a bit.

By the time we got back it was getting dark so I didn't get many good pictures but what I have gained is the will power to go out walking more again.

Cue googling local (and not so local) forest walks that we can go to and enjoy the sights and get out into nature.


Where do you enjoy walking? How do you motivate yourself to go out each day?
