    Hi all

    I'm trying to understand how to work out extra points for excercising.

    I go to the gym 3 times a week can you please tell me if I've worked my points correctly:

    I spend 40 minutes on treadmile 20 minutes running 20 minutes hill walking so I worked that out to be in total 2 points (0.5 for walking & 1.5 for running).

    On the bike I spend 20 minutes I worked it out to be 0.5 points

    Stretching for 10 minutes 0.5 points.

    Weights I spend 30 minutes which I work out is 2.5 points.

    I also use a cross trainer for 20 minutes but I don't know how many points that is does anyone know?

    I also walk to work and back everyday (which takes me 20 minutes each way) do you think I get points for that?

    Your help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    For me I don't count walking to and from work as i've always done it. I count any exercise I do on top of my normal daily routine - I'm not sure if this is right or not, but I figure that if I was eating extra points for things my body is used to doing then it would be counter-productive!
