Push-ups? Yoga? Swimming? Weights? Running? Anything?

I'm curious about this partly because I got into such a great habit of exercising every single day (except Christmas and my birthday tongue.gif) about five years ago, which continued until about August of last year, and now I only full-on exercise very occasionally, but at least I walk quite a lot and swim when I get the chance. I'm not sure why I just suddenly became not bothered to exercise every day anymore, I didn't think I'd just stop like that. I did a variety of things, from weights to a number of things that I'm not sure how to describe without getting all detailed lmao. I do enjoy running when I'm in a situation where I need to do it, but I don't do it regularly or anything, perhaps I should start.

How often do you do it, if so? Do you find it gives you a better quality of life? Do you do it at home or in the gym?

karate 1 hour per week is pretty much all I get tbh kink.gif

But the need to need to excercise is not so urgent as the family does not currently own a car, so walking magic.gif

I usually walk daily. Aside from that some squats like every week when I remember I've barely exercised and think "ehhh that'll do" kink.gif.

I should probably make use of the gym that we have in our house. I actually really enjoy going on the treadmill, I'm just too lazy to get going more often than not.

this thread made me think of the HSBC advert- the museum of Procrastination

the part where it talks about the gym memberships- the memberships used only once

that's me

bad, i know.

but that's me

I cycle to/from work which is ~8 miles, so I clock up 16 miles per day - no need to pay for an overpriced gym! biggrin.gif

I walk a few miles a day and I go on an excercise bike a few times a month. unsure.gif

I've been meaning to get a gym membership, but I'm gonna wait till I can drive and then I'll do so biggrin.gif The idea of 11pm fitness scares me and excited me at the same time.

No but I really should, I mean I do walk a fair bit, especially when it's nice outside etc but you wont see me running for a bus laugh.gif

I used to be so sporty as a kid though and I loved it and do miss it, I wish I had kept at least something up. Maybe I will look into taking a sport up again but it is difficult for me, especially when it was team sports I did, being self-conscious of my weight and what people would think was enough to put me off joining any of the teams I wanted to in High School. I've been close to joining a gym a few times but again, As much as I wish I didn't- I still think I have that mindset where I'd constantly be paranoid people would be judging me or whatever, surely there must be something out there that suits though thinking.gif

Me too! I was so passionate about short distance running and gymnastics (as well as athletics in general, karate, swimming, rounders and netball to a lesser extent). Younger me would kick myself now. laugh.gif

I go to the gym 3/4 times a week. Sometimes do circuits once a week depending.

Love it. Tend to go after straight after work as it can be hard to motivate yourself from home. Want to do more cardio stuff, but right now I just do weights.

I volunteer at a furniture store where I work in the warehouse, which involves lifting, and sometimes quite heavy stuff so that does give me a bit of a workout! Otherwise, I go for a long walk every week (round about 10km), been trying to do this thing where I walk the Central line (not all at once obvs ;o) and have done some sections, like St.Pauls station right back to Leytonstone! I do wanna do a longer sponsored walk one day, it's an ambition while I still can really.

I have been to the gym before (and do intend to go back when I'm earning more), but walking has always been my preferred method. I do genuinely find it eases so much stress and makes me in a better state of mind, which I need these days. Never been that into sports though unforch, maybe those evil days I spent playing football in school.

Netball was my fave! I was always the goal shooter laugh.gif I did that at school though and I did football there too. Dancing, swimming, trampolining and horse riding where other things I did as well :')

St Pauls to Leytonstone! ohmy.gif That's impressive - especially since Mile End to Stratford is a bitch to walk.

That would count as light exercise, yes! Especially if you do it so much every day! I specifically go for a walk with my iPod a lot, but they tend to be rather short walks, unless I'm in the mood to wander around a bit more kink.gif

I would love to go to the gym and lift but my ear condition has put a stop to that sadly.

I still do badminton and yoga and try to do this power pump thing every once in a while 'cause the dream to be fit still lives in spite of my ear :'). Luckily my body is pretty toned naturally (albeit a bit scrawny).

Why schools are obsessed with only having football for p.e lessons is beyond a joke.
