    I did all the exercise I'll ever need in the Army. I'm a total couch potato now. :)

    Well, I do walk a lot and I do ride my bike if the weather is nice.

    Zenzible eating & exercise
    I cycle to work and back 5 days a week, about 25 mins each way. Tend to go for a half hour walk at lunchtime, to the shops and back. 2-4 days a week I'll do another half hour on the cross trainer when I get home from work (or will start to do again once the blummin thing has been repaired). 2 or 3 days a week I'll also do about 20 mins light weights and various stomach crunch thingies, in front of The Daily Show. I don't tend to do much at weekends, maybe an hour or two's walk if the weather is nice.

    That sounds like an awful lot, but there are many days where I don't do anything but the cycle to work. The common theme to all my exercise is that I have to get something else into the bargain - shopping, avoiding crowded buses, listening to podcasts while cross training, or watching the telly. I simply CANNOT do exercise for its own sake, so I've worked out ways to sweeten the deal and it makes it a lot easier to keep it up!

    I've started back at the gym again finally, been going for the last 3wks ish. I'm doing about 30-45mins of cardio and then 20-30mins of weights to tone up and build strength in my weedy arms as i'm currently training as a special constable and have personal safety training in a few weeks! Eeek. It's been going loads easier than i thought it would but struggled whilst on 600cal doing cd so trying atkins to see if i get on any better..

    I joined the Gym in the NewYear to motivate myself. Had a trainer for 6 weeks as part of the joining, didn't loose any weight at all despite going 2-3times per week and doing full work out. Did improve my fitness and strength though so that's good. Didn't find the Gym easy in the first 2 weeks of Atkins but this week is a revelation - feel really good and actually enjoyed it - I do 30mins cardiovascular [10mins on bike, crosstrainer and treadmill] then chestpress, legpress, pull downs and rows to tone. I am supposed to do abs but they are so deep down I can't be bothered just yet but I will.
