Starting exercise

Postby Ally » Mon Aug 28, 2006 8:02 pm

Hey there everyone, well I have decided that it is time for me to get a move on (literally) and start to exercise. I used to love going for walks with my hubbie and kids, so all being well I will be starting that again in the next couple of days. I can't wait for the weather to warm up a little bit more and then I will be starting swimming (so it is a bit easier on the joints until the weight starts coming off) Wish me luck as I start this long journey of losing weight and getting fit and healthy!! :wink:

Good luck. Exercise is always a pain for the first few weeks, then you find you really start to enjoy it. Have fun :D

Good luck with it Ally. I used to hate exercising and now I love it. In fact I get a bit narky if I have to miss out for some reason.

sounds like you have identified a type of exercise that will suit you. Just make sure you set yourself a small goal you can achieve. This might be getting out for an hour walk 3 times per week. Then you can increase it gradually. Stick with that simple formula (slow increases of exercise you find suits you) and you're on to a winner!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Kate I walk and/or go to the gym during my lunch break, however, I have exercise DVD's on hand at home in case I can't go for whatever reason. Weather, meetings etc.

I promised myself that if I don't get to do some cardio during the day then the cardio Tae Bo is done when I get home. This way I don't miss out. There are loads of great exercise vids/dvd's to choose from. I also now have some yoga and pilates dvd's too.
