I think I’ve been overweight for most of my life, at least from being a teenager. During secondary school I always remember being a size 14-16 and in the years since that has slowly gone to an 18, then 20 and now 22/24. That last bit of weight and change in dress size seems to have happened over the last 6 months (some of lockdown) and I can definitely feel it.

Swimming I love spending time in the swimming pool and I love taking Erin. However, swimming is something I never learned how to do as a child because of self consciousness.

AD | Gifted item John quite regularly cycles to work and it’s a good 10 miles each way. He also sometimes runs on his lunch breaks. As I’m sure you can imagine, this puts strain on his body and sometimes his muscles scream at him. John is happy to try new things now and again if there is a chance it will help him and make this amount of exercise that little bit easier on him. When Bioflow got in touch to see if he would like to try one of their sport wristbands, we were both intrigued. Bioflow explain
We all know that as soon as you have children, you spare time goes out the window. That run you used to go for? Not going to happen. An hour in the gym? Maybe next week. We might not get enough time to exercise for ourselves but it’s also important to teach our children to be fit and healthy. With that in mind, here are some fun ways to keep fit with your little one!
