I don't drive, and I live on the side of a mountain, 10 mins to the valley floor and 15 mins back up, at a fair speed, several times a day
to work, to the shops, the school run and an any other reason I need to spend some worthless mintutes getting out of breath.

Swimming and doing "Biggest Loser" on Wii. It's rather fun and I sweat in no time. I got the Zumba Wii disc and it's a bit tricky and to fast paced for me.

Right now swimming and water aerobics. Swimming was a gawd sent to me after my surgery.

I have gradually increased my running frequency. Im still running the same distance each session, that will increase once fitness levels improve. Still getting a little soreness high in the tibia after 2-3 days in a row, but a rest day sees that gone and back out. Lost about 7kg in the last month, which for me is a lot because this was not really about losing weight, its about trimming down and toning up and turning back the clock to my early 20's. In the last 4-5 weeks, I have put myself in better shape than I have been in the last 10 years. Aiming to be as fit and in shape as I was in my teens within 6 months and I'd love to get back to doing the Sydney City to Surf again which is suppose to be a fun run. Its not, if you're remotely out of shape..

Sugar is your worst enemy....you're better off eating that snack with a little extra fat than a fat free one laced with sugar to make it taste better...

Can someone recommend a good joint formula?? (body joints, not Regaeman Man ). My knees start to get a little sore on the 3rd consecutive day of running, would like to fix that rather than rest them..

Lots of Sex! Seriously!

But mostly drinking a lot of water, walking a lot everyday, and trying to eat right!
Eating good stuff along with a few treats but in small portions, several times a day with lots of fruits and veggies.

Kisses!

For starters, I have good genes. But I also eat well, and do a little bicycle riding. I used to do a lot of backpacking, but my knees can't take the pounding on long downhill treks any more.

I tend to bike, hike and eat rather healthy. Since I'm a snack person, it keeps my metabolism in shape and helps me keep off pounds :D Fruits are the way to go.

Bodybuilding, swim training, running, and a lot more when the weather gets nice out.
I want to do serious ballroom dancing. I've tried some lessons, and it's a great workout (and fun)
Oh yeah, marathon lovemaking sessions, really hit the abs and quads LOL.

Sex is soooo much better when you stay fit ;-)

Dance. Or any aerobics class that gets you dancing, especially hip hop. I can keep going at it and never get tired.

Kinda wish I have the patience for regular gym workouts though.

I run 8-12 miles almost every day! It serves multiple purposes other than just staying in shape. It's kind of mental most days.

Agreed. I'd go nuts if I didn't run. Clears the head. I don't go everyday but I'll do 45 to an hour every other day or so, and mix it up with hills, intervals.

I go to the gym 3-4 days a week. I have a bit of a dicky knee so low impact interval training and weights. As other people have already mentioned, eat right, drink lots of water, get decent amount of sleep and drink in moderation.

Look after your body as early in your life as possible because when you are older it will have been a good investment
