    For those of you who are thinking of food, forget it. :lol: The hula hoop I mean is the type you used to play with as a kid. I just bought one in an attempt to keep my newly accuired waist, and it is great. Last year at 10st I wouldn't have been able to keep it going, but now at 8st 7lb it is easy. This is my idea of a silver lining to my weight coming off due to my high bs last year. The grandkids think it is amazing that granny can do it too. Street cred and a waist, what more can I ask for. Also a good way to exercise when I have gone a bit overboard on the food. :oops: I eat and then twirl my hoop. Anyone else found their silver linings, or found a fun way to exercise?

    Trampoline's are fun too, but if you think hula hoops are girly try balancing a couple at once. Hard! Still waiting for other sugestions, anybody? :lol:

    Chasing 14 month old Amelie around my garden yesterday was great execise. I have terraces with steps, so I didn't dare let her get to them without holding my hand. We negotiated those safely and explored down the terraces. Dogs(very small ones) enjoyed having a 2 foot tall playmate on the lawn too. Went inside to get lunch and Amelie managed to trip over her ride-on toy and bump her head. No damage done, but many tears. She brought it in to the kitchen herself. whilst I was cutting up tomato for her. This baby eats almost anything( except brocolli)
    Baby minding is hard work, but fun. the best bit of being a much fitter grandma
