Just wondered if any on you would like to share your tips for a fit and healthy lifestyle.

Recipes welcome.

Exercise routines welcome.

Hi Jos, porridge every morning, make mine with soya milk and dried cranberries, yum.

Actually, I lie, I am tempted by a bacon sarnie at the weekend!

Quit the tabs - almost 3yrs for me, after a 25yr old habit. If I can, anyone can !

Gentle exercise every day (he says, whilst typing on the couch!), eg walking, gardening, (look after your hips +knees - especially if approaching middle age - no jogging around on hard or uneven surfaces!)
I often make a fruit salad breakfast with plain yogurt. Eat it any time of the day, yum! Generally vary the diet.
Even with incipient arthritis in those knees and/or hips a local gym may be able to help you loosen up / slim down with a programme using only low impact workout machines -eg arm cycles and cross-trainers.
And don't forget a good dose of socialising - company, conversation and a good laugh works wonders. Everything in balance and keep happy.
B13 ( that's Birdy13, not 'Be thirteen' - but it might work for you ... if you're only twelve!)

Everything in moderation is my motto. Eat less move more!

So I'll follow my own advice now and go for a walk

Low carbohydrate living and a vigorous daily walk my blood sugar down to a healthy level. Pity I didn't keep it up, really....

I have spent all day digging now time for Liver and Bacon with some hearty mash.

This is also my favourite way to eat porridge and 3 gym sessions a week help get rid of the chocolate
