    Oh my god, have just done my first ever exercise video!
    All i managed was the 10 minute warm up! and i was exhausted :eek:
    I cant believe how bad shape i am in! My OH has been teasing me about doing exercise, saying he wanted to watch it for entertainment, now i can understand what he means... :cry:
    And i bought 5 different dvd's off ebay so i wouldnt get bored.... at this rate, i will never even finish the 1st one!!! :(

    I started out with the Rebecca Wheatley DVD, she lost loads of weight with Slimming World, I think around 12 stone, and made a DVD. I can't do that one anymore as my fitness levels are too high for it, but when i first did it, it got me really really out of puff!

    I do Davina now and it's brilliant.

    I was the same Hun...joined the Gym at work (Army base) and started doing a few minutes here and there on each machine....now, I can go a full hour and half and have climbed Scafel Pike and climbing Snowdon next month!!!
    Next year have put my name down for the 3 Peaks 24 hour challenge and for someone that used to weigh 21 stone 7...I dont think thats too bad...do you?? Lol.

    Little steps to begin with and soon you will be climbing mountains (literally!!)

    So what hun!! 10 minutes is 10 minutes that you wouldn't have normally done. It all adds up! People who run marathons in 30 mins didn't run thier first marathon in 40, .. you'v gotta start somewhere, so what if it was the warm up today, next time youl do the warmup plus 5 minutes more.. then 10 more.. then before you'l know it's youl be moving on to the next one! Cut yourself some slack hun, your doing well.. and the first step is buying them in the first place, youv made a commitment! xxxx

    Don't worry hun!!

    Some of them are really hard! I work out with a personal trainer 3 times a week and some of the DVDs I can't manage them!

    !0 minutes done though is 10 minutes towards a healthier you! Maybe take a 10 minute break and then try for another 10. You could try and do an hour like this a day, which would be 30 mins total excercise. :)

    Then maybe start doing 12 mins excercise with an 8 minute break etc. etc. Soon enough you'll be able to do a whole workout.

    Well done for having the motivation to get started! That's 10 minutes more excercise than most of the nation has done today (me included!) although you have inspired me to get my Davina DVD back out.

    Don't worry too much - when I first got my Cross Trainer I could barely manage 10 mins - but stuck to it and made myself finish 10 mins every day.
    Every week I add another 10 mins on and can do 40 mins now, fairly easily! :D

    Little & often I always say!

    If you try to throw yourself into it too much when you start out you often ending up hating it or hurting yourself anyways. Theres absolutely nothing wrong with 10 minutes! Work your way up & your body will slowly get used to it. Go girl!!! :)

    It WILL get easier! (Please say it isn't Nell McAndrews! I needed the paramedics after the firts 5 mins of that! ) I find Rosemary Conley good as you know what she's going to do next and shows someone doing the easy version, or she tells you to leave out the arms or to march on the spot.

    Urghh i know! its so horrid!! but u have to stick to it i started running 4 weeks ago i had to stop all the time basically walked it and only did it twice a week as my muscles were KILLING 2 days after! Now i run for 20 mins every day! WITHOUT STOPPING! and what used to be hell on earth i now really enjoy!

    Its horrible but KEEP GOING!!! Also for more info if you have more red days its more protein! good for your muscle repair!! but then agaain carbs will help you burn energy....

    anyway keep at it you will soon see the results!! xxx
