Hi all, started on this programme yesterday, do hope I can keep to it. My biggest problem is lack of exercise, I had a stroke when I was 53 (nearly 20 years ago now) but this left me with a weakness in my left leg. I recently took part in a research programme relating to the effects of Nordic walking which I enjoyed but I just need the incentive to get off my backside and get outside. I do keep busy, doing lots of volunteering, meeting friends etc but I know that being more physically active will help enormously. I do eat reasonably healthily (apart from the odd doughnut or piece of chocolate) and know that exercising is where I fall short. Joining this site got me motivated to do a shortish walk in my local park yesterday as the weather was so nice. I intended to do the same today but am putting it off!!!! Any ideas to get me motivated?
