I haven't been doing as much walking as I should do. There's been some dog walking but that's only around the local area, and not as taxing as a longish hike. I don't like walking on snow and ice, not much fun skidding and sliding all over the place, and I must admit the cold weather has put me off a bit. Sounds like a pathetic excuse really, but it's easy to sit tight in the house wearing lots of layers when it's flippin freezing outside.
I'm worried that my muscles might be getting a bit sloppy, I need to tone up in readiness for some long walks. I have an idea, what about keeping fit in the privacy of my own house. I need a cross trainer...........

If it's good enough for Kelly it's good enough for me. Yes I have gone mad and splashed out on my own personal gym. I love cross trainers. This one has good reviews, it is not that expensive, even cheaper for me because I have used all my Tesco vouchers, £57, as part payment.
I am so excited, can't wait for it to be delivered on Saturday. I will set it up in my front room, and listen to the radio or look out of the window while I am using it, and I am going to keep a notebook close by to log the times I am on it.
It will be great to hop on it every day, several times a day in fact, because it will certainly warm me up if I feel a bit chilly. Won't need to put the heating on ever again, just work up a sweat on the trainer. Whooopeeeeee.
