    I was thinking that from tomorrow i was going to exercise for at least 30 mins a day for 7 days to see if it made a difference to my weight loss. It doesnt matter what the exercise is, as long as you are exercising and the book says that you should feel slightly breathless if trying to talk whilst doing it. (hope that is correct).
    anyone up for it?

    Ah just the kick I need, I walk to work and back every day but not going to count that as I have been doing that since I changed jobs. So any additional exercise will count :p.

    Fuffs This is really the time!

    Everytime I decide to make a change, a challenge comes up on this site that fits it. I love this forum!

    So, Wed: 35 mins of varying intensity on my exercise bike.
    Thurs: 9.15 am Brisk 20 min walk into the markets in the city centre. Walked around until 10.30 am. Brisk 30 min walk home from the high street. 1.40 pm brisk 20 min walk. 2.00 pm brisk 10 min walk. 3pm brisk 20 min walk. Going on my exercise bike again later.

    I read yesterday that we burn calories even when we are just sitting. And we can increase what we burn by moving our hands, tapping our feet etc. Whatever you do, just keep moving. Even picking up the remote burns calories. So, in simple turns, live your life as a fidget lol
