Getting fit not fat

Hello & Welcome to my new follower Juliet.

Now I have been a size 12 now for a few years, but the during the winter months I do eat more and am less active, going through the early menopause and the tablets I have to take for 5 years contribute to weight gain. Some of my clothes are feeling not so comfortable as they should be, now I don't do diets and I am not going without a treat or two, I am not giving up chocolate, so I decided I just need a bit more exercise.

We do have a little walk daily if the weather is good and are always active in the summer months and we live on salads.

 I have been looking on Freecycle for weeks to see if there was an exercise bike, but no luck and then I saw this monster on the local ebay deals, and purchased it for the sum of £26.00.I was watching it , it had the starting bid of £25 I watched the auction countdown and I sneaked a bid in at the last minute.

It is a two in one, cross trainer and bike. We picked it up from a very posh house, the lady said she paid around the £300 mark for it and only used it a couple of times.
It is as new, a real bargain.

It is in the spare room, I can use it and watch the birds at the same time.

So this morning I popped on my new trainers which I got from Asda in the sale for £6

And had a half hour session to start.

I was lucky to find this Lateral thigh trainer on freecycle .

I enjoyed my little work out, I will do it about 3 maybe 4 times a week.

So how do you lovely people keep yourselves fit? Do you have any fitness equipment?
