I walked to the post office & back today to post my ebay parcels.  This is about a 20 - 30 minute each way. 
In the evening I put by black leggings & t-shirt on & popped my trainers on.  I went on a brisk walk which lasted somewhere between 45 -60 mins. I enjoy brisk walking. I would not feel fit enough to jog yet!.  I feel that brisk walking is something you can introduce in to your routine more easily. Its the keeping it up part that needs attention!  When I am walking along I love the feel of the breeze, the smell of the fresh air.  I love the fact that it does not cost anything this form of exercise.  Apart from that it is meant to be good for stress & your feel good factor.  My aim is to fit in 3 brisk walks a week the other walks are extra ones (ie that post office one!)
I do have a couple of exercise dvds a Claire Sweeny Perfect Fit one. I have had that one for years in my cupboard!. I did used to do it more regualar. I kept it as I do really like the dvd. You can fit in as little as 10 minutes  if you wish. I also have Pilates for dummies which is good to (not to difficult). 
Food wise today I was better than what I have been. Dinner portion size was sensible!. All the little decisions hopefully will add up eventually.


  1. I take my dog out three times every day and benefit so much from being out in the open. I remember years ago when suffering depression my doctor talked about always getting out into the fresh air every day even just a walk round the block. He told me it was a great healer. So true. When we moved here 6 years ago we got a dog and I make sure we have our walks every day because I know I would easily drift back into depression if I just sat in the house all day. I'll be honest and admit some days it's a chore to go out but once I'm out, even in pouring rain, I feel so much better.

    Well done on taking thoses first steps.

  2. Sounds like you're really loving your walks. Keep it up!

  3. Walking is great for giving the endorphins a kick start too. Natural anti-depressant medication like that is great. I need to make myself walk more. My poor old dog can't really keep up a good pace anymore.
