the war in bloggie land

They did it again  - slept through the night. All night. From 5pm to 6.30am. If this happens tonight I think I might invent a little dance in celebration!!

With the sleep (mine) and the hormonal balance that I seem to be gaining from not nursing I started seriously wanting to exercise. It's like a physical urge. So I went online and got the timetable of classes from my gym to see if I can fit some in and with a bit of noodling I think I could probably make a couple of classes a week.
Then I went online to look for blog sites of mum's or weight loss/exercise peeps. Well. What an eye opener. There is a war of words out there. I thought the IVF crew could get feisty!! Turns out that the 6 big fitness bloggers were attacked by Mari.e Claire (sorry if this is old news). MC made them out to be a fanatical, I think. Thousands of comments later and it seems that the war still rages.
But it made me think. Would you guys mind if the focus of this blog shifted slightly? I would like to blog about becoming a fit mum. The kind of mum that runs and bikes and does crazy things like work-outs??

What say you?


  1. It's your blog - you get to write about whatever's going on in your life. I always get a little creeped out by bloggers who make it seem like their entire life is one single thing. We're all more complex than that! And I'll be interested in hearing about your fitness journey. We're still in nursing land over here, so not so much with the running (ow!) but I AM looking forward to a day in the near future when I'll look as good as I feel, again.

  2. I agree with Sprogblogger. You write about what you want! It's YOUR blog. We're just here for the ride :)

  3. Your blog, you write what you want!

  4. Always want to hear about what's going on NOW in your life, obviously IF is not really a focus anymore! Would love to hear about your fitness journey -just be sure and put in a few music updates occasionally too!

  5. Sorry I'm behind on your posts...was having some computer issues (grrr). I love the idea of fit mum blog! The whole M. Clair/ issue is news to me so I need to go find out what all this is about. Maybe I can live vicariously through your exercise. I long to get back out jogging on the street again too...I just don't know when I have 30 minutes to do it. So blog on!
