Exercise

#1
What kind of exercise do you all do?

I swim for 30 minutes on a Friday while my daughter has her swimming lesson, and i have a Wii Fit, but I don't do anything other than that - don't even walk very much. And I think I need to do something, but I've no idea what.
i've joined gyms in the past, but I'm rubbish at actually going, so it's just a big waste of money.

I think I maybe just need to get out and walk more, but I have a 3year old and a 7month old, and my 3 year old will walk about a mile or so, but after that she gets a bit tired and cranky. Plus, it's hilly where we live, so to ask her to walk two miles up hill might be pushing it a bit. And she won't use a buggy board, or sit in a buggy any more either! Mind you, maybe I could walk when she's at playschool, and hope that Baby Henry has a nap in his pram.

Got to admit i'm not really one for exercise either hence i've gotten to this state. I have been doing 1 hours of aqua-aerobics a week and try to get out walking at a brisk pace for about an hour 3/4 times a week and it seems to be helping me. It's hard when you've got little people. Mine are 3 and 20 months and i tend to put them to bed and then go out walking about 7.30 ish. At weekend i go walks with them but pace is always very slow.

Good luck :)

I did think I could go for a walk once they're in bed - but I'm usually too tired by then! LOL But I know what you mean about them walking slowly "mummy look at the dog" "oooh, flowers" " a stone! a stone!" Takes forever to get anywhere!

You're doing so well though - 45lb lost - that's loads! Well done you!

I joined a gym as well. The council one, and I get an NHS discount, so only £20 per month. It's now just finding time to go. I should go tonight after the kids are in bed, but I bet I'm too knackered to even think about it!

i walk 4 miles each day to work and back, then im trying to get on my x trainer for 30min a night, tried the gym but was too expensive! so bought my own x trainer as it was my fav thing for £75 :)
