What we have to say about your health and well being

Exercise is good for you - Apparently!
Well, your blogger writes to report that he has started exercising. This is a milestone as he had a serious heart problem about three years ago and to his shame, although full of good intention, he had not seriously addressed the issue. The good news about exercise is that it has many benefits and I won't bore you with them here. Suffice to say that if your blogger had not been a keen cyclist in his youth he may not have survived the heart scare. My point is this, whatever exercise you can manage is going to be doing some good and could improve your chances of a healthier old age. Many people have to be careful about exercise but if you start slowly and build up gradually you will surprise yourself. I have been using a cross trainer and aboutthree weeks ago I started using it for 2 minutes on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. By increasing the time by 1 minute each time I was able to increase to 11 minutes. I am now adding 2 minutes each time and have reached the dizzying time of 16 minutes. Because it is not every day,I am on the lowest setting and I only increase the time by small amounts I feel like I am making progress and the increases are acheivable. Bizarrely,I am finding thatI still havesome reserves even though I am going longer and longer. So I can only conclude I must be getting a little fitter. Follow my progress and be encouraged that it is possible to exerciseeven if you haven't for a very long time, like me.
