One for my fellow 'strugglers'
Is skinny the new fat?
"When it comes to being fit, experts say there is no short-cut. "If you just want to look thin, then maybe dieting is enough," Bell said. "But if you want to actually be healthy, then exercise has to be an important component of your lifestyle."
So just for the record.. today I rode my bike (new road bike) - and chalked up 20km.. which included one decent hill, and a few other smaller ones. Not a lot,(relatively speaking) but I combined it with a couple of errands, dropping off and picking up things from people, so it also felt good to have used the bike rather than the car. One hour riding time. All good. So I'm also giving myself a tick for being environmentally friendly!
As an added bonus I have probably managed to embarrass my kids, because I rode past the school at lunchtime and heard a "Hey! That's Zoe's mum!!!!" from the fenceline. What a wonderful role model I am. Heh.
Does traipsing around the shops count as exercise? Did 2 supermarkets today, including 1 in a shopping centre?
I haven't been able to see the sidebar for a few months - I just thought that you were quite a private person - LOL - until I noticed on V's last night that you actually have got one.
Well, actually jeanie, that particular daughter still loves me dearly, and so wouldn't have actually been too mortified. (Middle daughter might have... it's amazing what freaks her out.) As it turns out, noone mentioned it to her. I'm disappointed!!
Traipsing around shops make you absolutely stuffed, I reckon!
