    haha 2 years ago I was running 4 miles a day and doing 3 hours in the gym a week... oh how the mighty have fallen! So im hoping my muscles might remember what exercise feels like... trouble is I don't really have the space to do proper exercise videos or programmes in the house and the weight I am now, no way am I going to the gym where I live, when its full of fit young men and skinny women!

    Hopefully get a few stone off and get a bit toned with the squats and walking and I'll feel more comfortable about going to the gym again.

    WOW! I don't think I've *ever* been fit enough to do that much exercise! Fingers crossed the squats is the kick start we could both use

    Haha that does sound like hard work!

    I found it surprisingly ok and no pain yet today, although I reckon tomorrow is going to be a killer and any movements I make will be made slowly lol. Will be doing day 2 when I get home from work later followed my a nice hot bath

    That's not a bad idea. I did swim 5 times a week but I have had tendonitis in my shoulder for the last few months and my physio has said to try and avoid it for a while so I've not been this week to give it a bit of a rest. I also have tendonitis in my foot (I'm quite injury prone at the moment it seems) so have had to limit any impact exercise so currently I'm just going for long walks and now doing the squats. I have a weighted hula hoop which I quite enjoy using, once my hips recovered from the bruises lol. Have you done the squat challenge?

    Done day one.

    My plan is to add another 30 day challenge each month, so once I get to 250 squats, I'll keep doing the squats and then add something really stomach based as that's my real problem area, then the next month add in something upper body based.

    Day 1 - 50 squats - DONE
    Day 2 - 55 squats
    Day 3 - 60 squats
    Day 4 - Rest Day
    Day 5 - 70 squats
    Day 6 - 75 squats
    Day 7 - 80 squats
    Day 8 - Rest Day
    Day 9 - 100 squats
    Day 10 - 105 squats
    Day 11 - 110 squats
    Day 12 - Rest Day
    Day 13 -130 squats
    Day 14 - 135 squats
    Day 15 - 140 squats
    Day 16 - Rest Day
    Day 17 - 150 squats
    Day 18 - 155 squats
    Day 19 - 160 squats
    Day 20 - Rest Day
    Day 21 - 180 squats
    Day 22 - 185 squats
    Day 23 - 190 squats
    Day 24 - Rest Day

    Day 26 - 225 squats
    Day 27 - 230 squats
    Day 28 - Rest Day

    I reckon I'll do a similar thing to you Escapade...this should get me more active as a starting point, then I'll build up that's the plan, anyway
