..with a little help from a great new website fitfor15in15!
Simply Fitter and Simply Move are very neglected categories on this blog. (I've just looked at them myself. You won't find much inspiration here I'm afraid, and very few posts - though the piano stair post which some of you may remember still delights - click on the link in this post)
I am so lucky to have reasonable health and to be fairly fit, and I am fitter than I was just a few years ago. I eat very healthily, am not overweight, and can still touch my toes! But I'm not sporty in the slightest and am inclined to laziness. (My first post about exercise, or lack of it, is here.)
Angela's daily blog deals with mentally fit, nutritionally fit, and physically fit - I like the distinctions and have no worries about the first two - but I do need a bit of encouragement on the third.
Even I can manage the 15 minutes a day minimum that she suggests!
I took a brisk 25 minute walk in the forest today, grudging the time it took to get all togged up - it was below freezing all day today - disliking the bulky clothes (I know, I need new outdoor gear!) but within minutes I was enjoying just moving along. The snow has all but disappeared there although more is forecast for tomorrow.
My word for last year was WALK, and I did, often. It surprised me how little it took to get fitter, but I'm even more surprised at how quickly I get unfit when I stop!
It never quite became a habit...
Do you have an exercise habit?
Perhaps you will join me in my visits to Fit for 15 in 15?
