Drinking too much maybe the start of your training

Over the years, I have been asked by many people who have not exercised regularly for a long time what is the best way to get fit. Well, some of you professional advisors who read this may disagree but I tell advise them against enrolling at a trendy gym or buying all the latest sportsgear.

I am always amazed at how many people who work in offices will use the lift to go up two floors. Or will drive the car half a mile to work. My advice is always to start with basics like this. Use the stairs, walk to work, give the dog a walk.

A lot of people, sensibly, leave their cars at work at this time of the year when they have been drinking alcohol. It gives them a good reason to walk the next day to collect the car. If they can do it one day why not repeat it regularly (the walking too and from work that is, not necessarily the drinking).

I just hope that you don't see me sneaking on the bus to work on Friday morning!

Before I signoff, how about a few people who are reading this spending a couple of minutes completing their online entry or persuading their friends and family to do so. You can all help to make the 2008 Clerical Medical Parish Walk the biggest and best yet by keeping the momentum going. If we can increase the number of entries from 31 to at least 100 before Christmas it keeps the event in the news.
