    Thought I'd start an exercise diary to track my progress. I've been exercising on an almost daily basis for almost a year now. :D Exercise, for me, has been such an intrinsic part of my weightloss - just as important, if not more, than my diet.

    I aim to do six-seven hours of highly intense exercise a week and about three hours of moderate exercise (walking and other light exercises.) I know it sounds a lot, but I have been exercising for a while now. I try and exercise for an hour a day - split up into three 20 minute sessions. When I'm going at a very intense pace I tend to find that 20 mins is about the maximum I can do in one session.

    I've decided I also need to finally get some resistance training in. I want to preserve my remaining muscle and build a little extra. I do resistance training now and again, but it needs to become a more regular thing for me so I will start to see some results and firm up those muscles.

    Today was actually a bad day. I only got about 12 minutes of exercise done. But I shall do better in the rest of the week. I had a tired day today - hopefully tomorrow it'll be back to 1 hour a day. :)

    Hi, I do a lot of training too, and like you I feel it is a more important part of my diet than the food.
    What sort of thing are you doing?
    I have come to a bit of a stand still with my training and was thinking about taking up running.

    I did a combination of things today. Sunday is one of my two "moderate" exercise days. However, I did still work pretty hard and ended up doing closer to an intense workout than a moderate one, I think. :greenapple:

    I did a combination of running, skipping and stairs today. A little like circuit training but without the weights. I kept chopping and changing - mixing things up.

    I have switched up my exercise routine this week - trained hard and been very consistent so far. I've decided (for the first time) to not weigh myself during the week this week. Usually I weigh myself every day and just find the fluctuations too annoying and disheartening. I didn't weigh this morning, so one day down. :)
