So here we have it for 30 weeks so far I have been taking part in weekly challenges with AXA PPP healthcare to make small changes in my lifestyle one week at a time to become healthier and happier and I have to say where has the last 30 weeks gone?
So for week 31 its all about exploring the great outdoors!
Easy you may think, and as much as it used to be for us, Ollie’s hips and back have made sure he is in constant agony and along with me setting up my own business and actually working from home I have not really addressed my work life balance … which I have vowed to make changes to in September…. however I digress.
- We love the quality time it gives us being out
- It’s great finding somewhere new to visit
- Everyone gets to stretch their legs
- There is almost always something for every age range to do
- Vitamin D is good for us!
Since the Summer holidays have now started for us and so we can
drag take the teen along with us, I have started looking as some new places for us to visit to keep everyone occupied.
With it now also being National Parks week it made sense to check out what the Peak District has to offer us as this is the area closest to us and one in which we have been saying we would like to visit!
So this Summer holidays we are going to finally go and visit Bakewell, I have had the privilege of visiting before but hubby is saying he hasn’t and even with his ropey back and hips there is plenty to see and do and we have to stop for a sit down there is plenty to look at!
We are also planning through the holidays to visit some local parks and places of interest such at Colwick Park, Wollaton Hall and even Sherwood Forest and the Major Oak (the village in which I grew up)
As it stands we may not be hiking over the North York Moors this year but if fitness improves next year it may just be an option!
Although you never know if another charity event such as the epic hike I undertook for the Team Honk Bloggers Relay is anything to go by … I certainly explored outdoors … even If I couldn’t walk for 2 weeks afterwards.
So where would you like to get out and about to explore this Summer?
