Stand Up for Health and Fitness

Your health and fitness should be the first consideration of the day. I’ve just been for a 5 mile hill-walk, which is something I usually do at weekends, but I’ve now brought a lot more resistance walking into my everyday fitness routine.  So if it’s not cycling first thing, it’s walking, to get my day underway. After a couple of hours exercise I have an appetite like a horse, something which I’ve had to learn to curb.  But I’ll talk about diet another time. I’m now standing in front of my desk ready to start work.  The research I have […] Read more »

We all want to keep our health and fitness to do the things we’ve always done.  Maybe even some of the fun things, that we’ve wanted to do but just haven’t had the time.

It’s Time To Think Fitness

Time to think fitness

The last of the Mince Pies have gone. It’s time to think Fitness, check out the weight gain – if any, and put our Fitness Plan in place for the New Year.  I personally only gained 2lbs over Christmas. (but then I did do a lot of walking). My brother has a very lively 18 month old “working Cocker Spaniel”, and she gave me a great reason to go for long walks with other members of my Family, who were staying over Christmas and New Year.  So on average over the Holiday, including Christmas Day, I was walking between 4 […] Read more »

It’s The Weekend:Go For A Walk

If you’ve been following me for the last week, you must be seriously ready to take action by now, or if you already have GREAT!  Or maybe you’re still not sure what to do.  Well getting started is the first big hurdle, and it couldn’t be simpler.
