I've discovered this NHS weight loss website whilst in bed with a horrid attack of Shingles. There's nothing like being hit by a virus or the like to make you stop and look at your current health and fitness level.
I've a back condition (spin-degeneration which causes a lot of pain) so I have to be careful what I do. However, in my youth and up to my mid 30's being very sporty (squash, jogging, golf|), I am amazed at my lack of exercise in my early 60's. Energy levels very low and its hard to start again at any sport when you are struggling to reach any level and always being 'tail end Charlie' when out jogging with a group or even on a nice walk.
Less of the whining I think and get something started!
I've been referred via my GP to 'Nordic Walking' and looking forward to it. At my age, I'm ready to look stupid marching around the parks and streets of Bedford with my Nordic sticks.
Started calorie counting today.
Thank you NHS.
