Wink When was the last time you exercised?

All,

How many of us actually exercise on a regular basis, take a brisk walk or eat "health food" to remain fit and fine? When was the last time you could see the buckle of your belt just by looking down towards your trousers?

There are a lot of TBhp meets which take place all over (unfortunately I could not attend any YET!) but I am sure the topics which we talk about are cars, booze and Birds! . When was the last time your wifey yelled at you pointing towards your tummy???

I get the reminders (not yelling) weekly thrice. Well, I stopped walking around amonth back. But this is stop and go kind of thing. Whenever I feel, to excercise I will do and vice versa. As far as the food is concerned, I do take care durng the daytime. But after office hours (evening snacks) ummm...I eat some junk foods. That is the reason, I have got the bulge & beer how can I stop this addiction.

Why exercise?
Eat, sleep, drink, smoke and be merry. After all you live only once!

Nice questions

I used to be a big-time health nut back when I was still doing my studies. That was about 7 years back. I started working and stopped exercising. Since then I've been walking/doing weights/skipping off and on (never for more than 5-6 days at a stretch)

I just started walking in the morning since about 3 weeks back. I walk for about 45 minutes to an hour. And I've been quite regular -- every day except sunday. I've never had this much exercise in the last 7 years. And I've lost 2 kg over the last 3 weeks too

Ah finally a question on Team BHP that i can also answer!!

When was the last time i exercised? That was just this morning. I started gymming when i was in college... then gave up for around 5 years once i started working. One fine day i looked down and could not see the buckle of my belt. thats when i decided to start it again. Have been "almost" regular since then.

Regarding eating, i eat what i want to eat. Except sugar.

Can going all the way downstairs to pick up a bag of chips be counted as an exercise ? And is carrying up 3 cream bicuit packets, 2 water bottles and 2 chips packets an exercise ?

If yes, then I exercised today

Thumbs up

If playing outdoor sport to work up a sweat is exercise, then weekends are my zone.
Apart form that, am just collating enough resolve to get serious about the whole affair.
If there are any Yoga / cardio / exercise tips that can be shared, it might jus help jump-start people like myself.

Cheers

Now this seems like a perfect "make feel guilty" thread I could have seen today. I am very regular when it comes to exercising. Every morning its squash and swimming for me. Have followed this routine for last 5 years.

But y'day I was at my friends wedding, ate and drank like crazy and skipped the exercise and slept till noon. Got up and made a huge brunch and was trying to push the guilt under the rag and I see this thread

Heh heh... Reminds me of a poster in Pecos.
"Downstairs for ciggies, upstairs for the loo. No wonder our regulars are so fit."

Anyway, back to the topic. I've never been concerned with exercising regularly or anything. Always ate well (and drank well too).

Till one day I couldn't see my belt buckle when I looked down. So, started being a little more careful about what I ate and drank. And also started exercising a little bit everyday. Feel a lot fitter now, and clothes fit better too. Still can't see my belt buckle when I look down, but that's what mirrors are for, right?

My doctor makes me jog everyday, about 1-1.5 kms.

The kids point, women chuckle. I have a feeling even the strays in the park are sometimes grinning at my agony.
