    Well guys- we are all tackling the food side of our weight loss journey, but I thought a nice little 'move more' challenge might be a nice idea. This journey is about losing weight, but hopefully it is also about getting fitter, healthier and living longer.

    Exercise needn't be some horrible sweaty slog in the gym. Incidental Activity is all the stuff we do during a normal day e.g. cleaning, walking, stairs, dancing....sex!

    So, who's in for a challenge? Let's all try and move more each day- even just 1 tiny change every day will make us fitter and hopefully help with the weight loss too!

    Today:

    I deliberately didn't fill my arms with washing/cups/bins and made myself go up and down the stairs on 5 seperate occasions

    I had a boring 2 hour job of binding booklets so I put on a crap 80s music station really loud and stood up and wiggled my bum while I did it

    I am off to Tesco after work and am walking briskly there instead of making an excuse and driving

    Who's in?

    2 minutes running up stairs = 36 calories
    2 hours slow dancing movement = 433 calories
    20 minutes brisk walk = 120 calories

    589 calories burned- that's about 2 bars of chocolate worth!!!!

    Me!

    I've started walking up the stairs at work instead of using the lift. It's on the 3rd floor but the way the stairs are placed, it's like 13 mini flights of steps! Tiring!

    I'm in!

    Downloaded the "Couch to 10k" iPhone application the other day, and I'll be doing the second day of it tonight!

    It's really good, because it gets you running for 30seconds, followed by 4:30minutes of walking, so it's nice and easy for someone as unfit as me! :D Plus, you have a rest day after you've done it, so it's only done every other day!

    Plus, I walked about 4.6 miles (2.3 there, and 2.3 back) to the Green Day gig last night! :D

    Me too. Finally got back to the gym this morning after 2 weeks off, painful but well worth it! Exercise makes me feel so much better when I'm down so an added incentive.

    Wow- brilliant
    Just 30 minutes of moderate pace walking burns 120 calories
    30 minutes at brisk pace burns 180

    This all adds up girlies- great cardiovascular exercise AND burns off yet more fat

    Nice one, fit girls

    Mine are pathetic, but I managed to stand on one foot for 5 secs (with the cast off), go on tip toes for 5 secs again, and begin the exciting times of standing on the trampette for a slight rock from side to side. (My Physio says I'm doing well :8855:)

    I'm determined to get back on 2 feet, no cast and no crutches by August :D xx

    Each little thing helps. This is not about advanced exercise, just more movement.

    When sat down we can all tense our belly muscles 20 times
    When watching TV we could roll our shoulders 50 times
    We could park slightly further from the supermarket entrance and use a basket rather than a trolly if only going for a few things
    We can clean our cupboards
    We can take a frisbee out with kids in the park
    We can listen to more upbeat music so we are more inclined to shake our tush just when doing normal stuff

    What is everyone going to do tomorrow?
    I am going to clean my wardrobe out with some cheesy music on while my husband watches the world cup downstairs

    My plan for tomorrow is housework too. It all helps. I was going to do the gym and swimming again but I have to stay in for a package so house work will have to do. Maybe I'll try the wii too....:eek:

    I'm up for this as last time I did SW the weight fell off me as was in an active job. Now I am office based so the weight loss is too slow for my liking.

    Today I have come to work early & walked round town to various shops before starting work & then walked for 30 mins in my break

    Usually I drive to work but as my car broke down last week and I dont pick my new one up till tomorrow night I have had to find alternative ways to get to work. So today I cycled to and from work - its almost 3 miles each way.

    Tomorrow I am going to walk it both ways.

    Last night did Day 2 of the "Couch to 10k"!

    46 minutes of alternating running and walking, plus walked the 1.5 miles to the park near my parents house so my siblings could come with me! (My 7 year old brother ran solidly for about 20 minutes - the poor little mite nearly collapsed <3)
