    Ok so ever since i can remember i have hated exercise! In primary school i would do everything to get out of PE, i couldnt stand the thought of everyone watching me, or being all warm & sweaty!

    Im now 19 & nothings changed. I have NEVER been to the gym, i have this image in my head that i would walk in & everyone would look & know im a newbie & watch for a laugh *(i know this might not be the case but its a sort of phobia!)

    I bought a wii & the wii fit etc, thinking this would help because its in the comfort of my own home, however i get to easily distracted & bored with it :/

    I could really do with some help for ideas of which sort of exersice u should try! Iv got a dog & try taking her lots of walks, but not sure how far i should be walking, normally up & down the street tires the dog out! but i know this is just lazy haha!

    have you tried a more fun approach to exercise?

    no hard work in the gym that can get boring but maybe a dance class or something, zumba is very popular and its a fun way to exercise.
