    Hi all

    I know the girls are doing the 30 day shred challenge but I don't like "boot camp" style training :)

    I'm sure many of us have an old exercise dvd lurking somewhere (I have Beverly Callard - it's actually really really good!). I was wondering if anyone wanted to join me on trying to do at least 45 minutes of activity a day (be it an exercise dvd, 3 x 15 minute walks, a gym session, a class?)

    I want to try do a yoga dvd (for flexibility and strengthening) and some sort of cardio daily.


    Anyone else up for it?

    Great :D

    We can do a list like the other challenges? And then write daily "day 1 done" then replace it with "day 2 done" etc.?

    Lol..anything is better than nothing (the reason I suggested 45 is that's what's recommended for weight loss).

    Not shallow at all Kirsty.

    I just hate exercise full stop, although might be able to manage 20 mins a day. Am being a tight arse and not buying a DVD though, although the Shred one sounds good

    I'm up for this... not sure if I'll manage it today (staff meeting after work and then doing the horses in the dark!) but I will try - I must have an exercise DVD somewhere!
