1 hr 20 min walk - pedometer reads 8700steps, but i discovered half way that it was only measuring every 2nd or 3rd step, so it's probably 10000+.

I'm absolutely exhausted. Just starting out I was really lethargic, like my muscles had nothing to give. All the way back my legs were shaking and I just felt like I had no energy.

butterfly: be careful. Might pay to have a small snack of some nuts or something and definately some water before you go or while going. You don't need to make yourself ill! Otherwise...well done!!! :D

Today I caught the train to Williamstown beach. Came back to get my kids later and THEY DIDNT WANT TO GO!!! I was pretty upset. But I took myself *again* and this time, went for a long walk and had a swim for about 10 minutes. Was GREAT!!! I have done over 15,000 steps today according to my pedometer which I kept doing checks on to make sure it was on accurate setting.

So I feel good. And I took heaps of pics.

Congratulations Carla, that's a huge amount of steps. It's also great that you didn't let the kids control your mood for the rest of the day and still went and enjoyed the beach.

I think it depends on what age they are. Once my kids were old enough all they wanted to do was hang out with their mates or get their school assignments done. They become independent so young these days.

Yeah they do become independent young these days. But I was still pretty blown away and am afraid I over-reacted somewhat, took it personally and so on. I was also very frustrated having got excited that we'd be able to have some family fun together and *sniff*, nobody was interested. If you push too hard, you just end up alienating them. But it's just frustrating because the next minute, you're getting "Im borrreed" in yer ear too!

My mum used to answer the "I'm bored" thing with "Well, there's a big pile of washing that needs folding right next to you. You can start with the handkeys"

Weird thing was it always worked. We'd sit in front of the telly folding washing :shock:
