@Sassy1 I'm sorry but I don't think it was me mentioning the youtube clips - I may be wrong and having a senior moment - so please correct me if I'm wrong!
FastDay: The Program - a free 4 week App-based introduction to 5:2 and intermittent fasting.
This week I've done well getting my steps in - 10K per day. But my appetite is way up - I ate like a crazy person yesterday, including half a bagel with butter at 1130pm because i was really hungry and really really really wanted it. The half bottle of wine did nothing to steel my will. >.<

I have no idea if the two are related. But I can't help but form a causal relationship in my mind.
Hi @Esta, it wasn't YouTube but online tutorials using your body weight for resistance that you mentioned. So if you have a link to those, that would be great.

Going swimming as usual this Sunday morning, after I have walked the dogs.

Happy exercising everyone! :smile:
Hi @Sassy1. These were the ones I'd seen http://www.livestrong.com/slideshow/551 ... s/#slide=1 but there are loads of ideas out there. I find a lot of interesting stuff on the livestrong website. Have fun!
I finally made it to the gym for a bit of weight training. phew!
So... that trip to the gym.... I now know what was causing my back problems :-/ No more twisty-twisty machine for me!

In other news, I cycled 28 miles yesterday, from the northern tip of Manhattan to almost the southern tip, and back again. I think the last time I was this tired was after a half-marathon!
One hour biking is one of my daily exercise routine for endurance reason.
Taking my niece and nephew to the adventure park today. 3 hours of climbing and zip lining. It's quite the workout! I hope I can move tomorrow!
Sounds like a great day @cblasz! What a wonderful way to get some exercise. :smile:

Yesterday I was a bit more adventurous with my cycling and rode up a 7km hill that is cyclists' Mecca near where I live, I was only game to do this as I had met a cyclist who encouraged me to give it a go, and in fact rode with me (at half the pace she normally rides - very kind of her). It wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. Because I live at the top of the hill, I did the downhill first. That was very enjoyable!
Spin girl! Spin!

Hills are exactly where RPM is your friend. ;-)
Absolutely @adfnfuel! I am very conscious of RPM and do my best to keep this in the optimal range. But I have a very heavy bike (one of the first comments my bike riding friend said was - get a new bike!) and I end up in a very low gear, so progress is slow. I do have a lighter bike (stored elsewhere) so when I get that back I will see if it makes any difference. Though I can't see my speed doubling! :grin:
I'm off soon for a wee hike in a forest/jungle with wild boar!
