We do all the bowling!

Recently, my friends and I decided to go bowling as a cheap Saturday night out. It was such a good night, and it was so lovely to see everyone outside of work for a change. Admittedly I don't know who won and some weird random people turned up. It was only planned as a small group of good friends which some how escalated to fourteen!

Here's a few pictures of the night, hope you enjoy...

This is definitely a must do if you want an enjoyable cheap weekend outing,  I spent £10 all night, Bargain! At that price you could become a bowling king or queen.

We walk all the places!

In April Anthony and I are heading to the Lake District for our anniversary and of course a week of relaxation and holidaying. This is our opportunity to be the perfect tourist couple, or in our case get lost and end up doing something completely random, which sometimes is the best way to explore. Cutting to the chase, I want to be fit to go and manage to do a long fell walk without having a heart attack, also the weight loss would be a bonus.

My goal

Admittedly I am not great on paint but you get the idea so, to start my get fit scheme last weekend I went on a five mile walk with one of my work friends and her friend. Luckily the weather was on our side and not a spot of rain landed on us as silly old me didn't think of taking any water proofs. We didn't venture far but to me it was a new land, I'm fairly new to Hereford and didn't actually realise there was great walking land so close by! I walk into the town but the walk isn't what you'd call pretty, just housing estates and big buildings, hardly anything to inspire you.

Walking pose!

I know five miles isn't really a long walk it only took us two hours and I though I would have struggled but it was actually just really nice to get outside and see some new places. I didn't get out of breath once and I thought I would, perhaps not quite as unfit as I once thought. I'm going to start swimming again, and I will go because I really want to get back into shape. I feel like a big couch potato at the moment, the sooner I start the sooner I'll be fitter and thinner and probably a little bit happier.

I'll leave you with a couple more snaps from our walk and I promise to keep you posted on the fitness scheme.
