    Time for another photo! Went a bit mad yesterday in Snowdonia; this is at about 2500ft above the Ogwen valley.

    Hi again! So I struggle with exercising in winter (and at other times lol).

    I started again last week. I walked for 40 mins on Mon-Fri. Then Saturday there was lots of walking in Newcastle for the footie (and around 145 steps in one go) I rested on Sunday.

    Today I have walked for 40 mins.:) It's good to be back with you guys....is it time to start a new thread yet? I usually turn up when it's time to finish lol.

    Done some longer walks this week, and also 5 minutes on the rower yesterday - bit of a back twinge so I need to ease gently back into that routine.

    Well people , a year ago I joined in with the 5x50 challenge and as many of you know it has changed my life .

    For me daily exercise and reducing carbs has helped control my diabetes , know I am only one person and it's not for everyone , I just feel lucky that it works for me . 2 years on from Diabetes and I am fitter and healthier than most of my life . I feel lucky that I read info on DCUK.

    30 mins on numb bum - getting faster as I'd done my six miles by 28 minutes!!! Can't go too fast as bike keels over as well as me. Think I'm going to ask for a better one for my 50th next March.
