Hi i find that walking really is the best exercise for me. It's easily accessible, free, outdoors and fun -especially if you go with a friend. I am a busy mother of 3 and i get to catchup with my sister 2 mornings a week and different friends on the other 3 days. Nothing like a bit of adult conversation for some sanity even if it is 6 in the morning!

I also do a lot of walking. Trying to do more. The other things I'm starting to think more about doing is not always taking the easiest option in my usual day like climbing stairs instead of the escalator and carrying the shopping home from my supermarket. It's the little things that (hopefully) should add up to a much bigger calorie burn.

I live in a two story house, i think i get most of my exercise out of running up and down them. Bushwalking is also another great way, good to get out into the country air, I certainly always take up the opportunity whenever im on holidays.

I walk all over the place. It is my #1 exercise. It also helps to clear the head and usually allows me to think through whatever is buggin me so I feel alot better after the walk.

Also easy on those knees Very Happy

I love walking! I need to do running with my job but if I overdo it on training then my knee ends up being in so much pain I can't move. I live in the country so love taking in the fresh air, sunshine and just being outdoors.

To avoid over eating always carry some raw almonds and an apple in your bag. It's amazing how a snack like this can carry you over until the next meal!
