    EVENTUALLY after a miserably dull morning, the sun came out so I went for a walk along the estuary. Met some friends I hadn't seen for a long time, and some people I'd never met before. Lots of birds but nothing rare.

    Came back and glared at the lawn but that didn't make it any shorter. Maybe tomorrow I can get the shredder and the mower out. Most of my exercise consists of practical stuff.

    I guess the best sort of exercise is "practical stuff" @chris c, double the benefit eh :-)

    Nope - us apathetic, self ruined, crisp muching T2s don't exercise at all - we wait for are limbs are cut off so we can fast track to the para olympics. And the only reason why we would want to do that is because they have the largest Mcdonald in the country at the atheletes village - obviously.

    Yum 'Apathy and crisps' - is that a new flavour?

    'Self ruined health' ?!! Words fail me.

    But only accurate because no-one will tell the masses that carbs are bad. grrrrr. When the eat well plate fails to work, it's easy enough to give up and eat what you like. When a diet/eating plan actually works it's easy to stick to it.

    When I posted up my keep fit regime I said to Jan, who will take the mic first Paul or Mo. The fact is, as posted on this forum earlier, Mr.Kellogg invented cornflakes to stop people masturbating fact. I have not ate cornflakes in seven years, draw your own conclusions, but never forget 'cause and effect' does not always follow through. affraid

    Exactly - although I know of more than one patient who was told by Nurse Rachet that walking, gardening and housework "aren't exercise" or that exercise means going to the gym.

    Today I have been mostly pulling stuff up, cutting stuff down and feeding it through the shredder.

    Then I got half the lawn mown, which took time and effort as it's about a foot high and as thick as Sid Bonkers.

    I had to stop as one of the neighbours was cooking with a door/window open and the smell of onions made me too hungry to continue.

    Tomorrow I'll probably drive to the Co-Op, walk down and around the town shops and finish the lawn - with a nose clip.

    Semi-epic fail today. I drove downtown and walked round the shops, I'll do the Co-Op tomorrow. Then I went out into the country and walked up a hill, along a farm track, down a different hill so I didn't get bored, and back over some fields. It was so gloomy and cold I couldn't be arsed to do the rest of the lawn so I ate half an avocado and two crevettes and retired to bed for a late siesta.

    The last couple of days after a chilly start have been sunny and warm, the forecast for the rest of the week is the same but a change for the worse is expected by weekend  Crying or Very sad

    Going to spend some time in the garden preparing for winter, shrubs need cutting back, block paving path needs clearing of moss and sheds need a coat of paint.  Leaving the bedding plants in for now as the bees are still active Very Happy as are the wasps  Mad

    Preparing for winter, didn't do much of that last year, I still had roses and all sorts flowering away past Christmas and into January. Then I had a manic thrash just before everything burst back into life again.

    Epic fail day two on the lawn, after I'd been shopping I thought I'd just call in at the nature reserve and have a walk round. I spent so much time there I didn't leave time for the mowing. So today's not-exercise was yet more walking.

    Oh and watching one of these guys which about tired me out.

    OK, the lawn got finished yesterday, and the first half I cut the other day grew back so fast it needed cutting AGAIN. I only have one of these and I really needed one of these

    Today I raked up all the thatch and started pulling out the weeds and wildflowers that have grown back in the spaces left by pulling out/cutting down the first set of stuff that was over.

    Gardening can be good as you can select the jobs you feel like doing a lot of the time and adjust  your workload accordingly. However the recent weather has had other plans, after the next batch of rain I predict the lawn will need cutting AGAIN, and a whole lot more stuff will have regrown.

    I like to finish up with a brief walk to stretch out my muscles. As they say about ageing, what was once flexible gets stiff, and the oher way round.

    Can you believe it will be 31st December tomorrow and we will soon be saying 'goodbye to 2015' and welcoming in the New Year.

    Already the 'lose weight' companies have started their TV campaigns and many Leisure / Fitness Centres are advertising their Get Fit / Keep Fit classes ... which is all well and good, but they do not come cheap!

    Me, I think I will stick with my walks ... others it may be gardening. The important thing is to do our best to keep as fit as we can Smile

    Of course the grandchildren enjoy swimming, walking, running, ballet, gym, judo, street dance ...
    I get quite tired just typing the list of different activities on offer, and what they enjoy Smile

    All the best Jan

    Well that's the point, eat the most profitable foods, then you will need to do the most profitable exercise to get rid of the side effects.

    Keeping fit and as healthy as we can is important ... isn't this 100yr old lady amazing!


    A 100-year-old great grandmother is still a picture of health thanks to over 30 years of dedication to yoga.

    Jean Dawson, from Cottingley, West Yorkshire, has been bending and twisting her body almost every single week for the past three decades.

    "I must have good genes," explained Dawson, who has five grandchildren and two great grand children.

    "I really enjoy doing yoga. It has really changed my life and has helped cure aches and pains. I use to have trouble from a slipped disc in my back but doing yoga really helped me cope with it."

    I'm pleased I can still bend down and touch my toes with straight legs LOL!

    Yoga and Pilates are two popular forms of 'keep fit', but however we keep fit (or not...) it's our decision and it's always best to choose something that we enjoy. Smile

    Best not to overdo the exercise it might not be as healthy as we think Shocked 

    High levels of intense exercise may be unhealthy for the heart

    Think I will change my brisk walks to a more leisurely pace and spend a bit more time at the local watering hole en route  beer
