    I'm going to cancel my gym membership as I'm paying £35 per month (which isn't bad) however I'm not actually going and with the credit crunch I need to cut down on unnecessary expenses. The only exercise I do enjoy is walking, so I'm going to make the effort to do more walking. I figure even if I can't sort my diet out, at least my legs might tone up and I might lose inches. (well, at least from the bottom half anyway!). I'm going to aim for an average of 14 miles per week, which is infitiely do-able.

    3.18m in 62 minutes = 287.4 calories.

    10.82 miles to go.

    Not 'on' a diet - Marissa Peer has changed my perceptions!
    Good luck with that - why pay for something when you can enjoy yourself and get results for free. Plus your out in the lovely fresh air (sometimes a bit too fresh!)
    I've just come back from an hour long walk after school drop off and am absolutely soaked:D

    1.39m in 35 minutes. Walked down t'road to Woolworth's, had a browse, and walked back home. I had thought it was further than that the way I was huffing and puffing and that is mainly on the flat!

    9.43m to go in 4 days

    I've got an imaginary dog. He doesn't stop at every garden gate to sniff it, nor does he keep stopping to wee up against walls, nor do I have to take plastic bags with me to pick up the poo, he doesn't bark menacingly at other dogs and he doesn't keep trying to sniff my crotch LOL

    (all the above happened when I took my neighbour's friends Rottweiler for a walk once)

    Thursday 28th August

    0.71m in total. Not brilliant, I went out for a meal at lunchtime so this was the sum of walking I did from the car to the restaurant and back.

    8.72m to do in three days.

    Also started diet proper today (again)
