    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if everyone who is dieting does any exercise as well and how much/often ?
    As i was pretty big & unfit, I started a couple of months ago by circuit walking (level ground) for about 15 minutes. Slowly progressed since then to walking up a quite steep mountain road and back, which takes about 40-45 minutes. The past few weeks the temperature has been over 30 degrees, so its a pretty good workout.
    I'm convinced it has helped me continue to lose weight each week.

    So just wondering what everyone else does? Gyms, walking, running?

    Hey

    I do 25 minutes weight training 4 times a week, and for cardio i play kinect sports for an hour twice a week (much more fun than gym!)

    I view the weight training as more important than the cardio for me, because i think losing lean body mass will lower my metabolism.

    I run 2-3km 2/3 times a week, do a Zumba video once a week and go to my personal trainer for an hour once a week. I've started to add in situps, press ups and a bit of strength training but I need to get my hands on some weights before I can sort out a proper routine.
