What I really wanted was to walk every day, but there has been no-one to watch the kids and after a few months, I felt like I had no energy and walking felt so haaard...
I decided to get an exercise machine, but had no idea where to start and no budget. In frustration I moaned at hubby that it was his fault I had gained weight, because before I married him I was skinny. I knew I was being completely unreasonable.

So now I really have no excuse. I have been doing five to ten minute stints (read that as almost five) about three times a day. I'm trying to build up my strength and the kids are having great fun using at a slide (one sits on it and another runs and makes him slide off) and trying to turn the gradient up when I am not looking.
