    Okay I am on my second week now and thought it was time to add a bit of exercise in. I went for a 45 minutes walk last night when I'd normally have been sat watching the telly so I'm hoping that'll help - I walk everywhere anyway so if I want to make a difference I'm thinking I'll need to walk when I don't normally.

    I'm also going to do my Davina McCall dvd a couple of times this week.

    What exercise are you doing this week?

I'verecentlyjoined a new gym, cost me £59 a month, so need to get my uses out of it , lol.Plus it makes me feel good too :) and then get to end it by a nice skinny capaccino in the coffee bar after x

    I'm missing my exercise this week, I never thought I'd say that! Didn't go to the gym on bank holiday Monday as I knew it would be full of people who aren't normally there and I chickened out.:eek: Had a visitor yesterday which meant I missed my normal swim and gym and hospital appointment today so I missed my aqua aerobics which I love. Can't wait for aqua tomorrow and will do more in the gym to try and make up for it. I'm yet to do the dvd I bought...just find it so much easier doing it out of the house.

    Terrible excuses I know!

    I love Davina- I do her (oo-er) 3 mornings a week!!!
    I play badminton on Tuesdays and always go for a long walk on Sundays. I save all the cleaning for once a week and do it in a manic rush to really get my heart rate going.

    It all counts!

    ^^^^ just to say, before SW I did NO exercise at all- I am constantly amazed at the stuff I missed out on when I was morbidly obese. I am always pinching myself when I realise that I like exercise- shock horror!!!!

    I havent done a Davina for ages !! I walk the dog. Do 30mins on exercise bike everyday. Take kids swimming twice a week, but it is only mess around swimming, not lengths or anything like that. Try to get on the wii fit for at least 2hours a week (not managed anything yet) and also do some exercise to get rid of bingo wings and wobbly c section tummy.

    I did a Davina 30 minute workout this morning (most unlike me lol!) and I've got a 30 minute footie match this evening.

    I'm working towards my Bronze Body Magic, but have also set myself a pretty high weekly loss target (3lbs) so I need to get out and get moving!

    I really fancy the trampoline - someone at my SW meeting said 15 minutes bouncing is the same as a 45 minute power walk - but sadly we don't have a garden. Wondering if I can convince my mum to put one in her garden ;)

    DD has a trampoline out the back and I never really thought about using it for exercise - might give it a go, as it's a real killer!
    I try to go to the gym twice a week, and do an hours walk either once or twice during the week too.
    Before I had DD, I used to go to the gym at 6.30am which suits me much better, but now I have to exercise after she is in bed in the evening, and I find it much more of a struggle.

    Yeah that's a good idea, I just liked the idea of bouncing about like a big kid on a huge trampoline haha.

    I did a relay in the Belfast marathon on Monday, so ran 6 miles. On Tuesday I lay in a heap exhausted lol. On Wednesday I walked the dog for an hour. This morning I ran for half an hour before work and am going to the gym this evening. Tomorrow I will rest. Saturday I am climbing a mountain with a few chums, not a huge one or anything!!! And Sunday is rest. Next Monday is netball training. Haven't thought any further past that.

    Well I'm doing roller derby training twice this weekend (hopefully)

    But I can always get a Guest gym pass for you if you'd like it for the Virgin Gym in Finnieston - it has power plates and a rock climbing wall if you fancy something different?

    (We met a few years back when you picked up a chest of drawers from my house :D)

    I do lots and lots of walking. Plus my voluntary jobs are both very active.
    I do occasionally run/CaniX, Wii Fit, and swim too :)

    I too like exercise ;)

    I try to do EA Sport Active on the Wii every day, but this is proving to be quite a challenge now my teaching placement is in full swing - my nights are mainly occupied with paperwork and to be honest I'm way too tired, especially tonight after working straight for 4 hours since getting home :(

    Saying that though I am on my feet for the best part of the day and running around like a woman possessed which must count for some sort of exercise!
