My favourite gym machine? The vending machine, of course!

Over the past few days I have witnessed more cyclists and joggers on the roads than at any other time I can remember.  Sweating, red faced and panting heavily whilst maintaining that focused and determined look through gritted teeth is not something that I personally feel the need to participate in, but hats off to those of you that do.

Well done and keep it up, if it makes you feel good.

A close friend recently challenged me to start training for the London marathon next year, I’ve now come to the conclusion that I don’t need friends like this.

My exercise regime is far less strenuous and more of a leisurely pace these days, weather permitting of course.  Let’s face it, there’s no point suffering to stay healthy is there?

I’ve been a member of a gym for over a year now, but apparently you actually have to turn up for it to have any effect.  Who knew?

I do have a favourite machine in the gym though, known as the vending machine.

On a serious note though, I really must make more of an effort to look after myself and stay in shape.  At this point in time, I’m a bad example.
