It is the time of year when people make new years' resolutions. Many people will resolve to exercise more. Some will resolve to attend gyms; others to engage in power walking or jogging. Some will decide to join Tai Chi classes.

Questions:

--Have you have decided to get more exercise in one form or another?

--If "yes," why?

--If "yes," what form will the exercise take?

--If "no," why not

Dear Steven,

Yes, one of my New Year's Resolutions does
include exercising more...

Why?

Simply to stay fit. I feel better when I exercise.
I usually do a morning run around a nearby park.
On days that I don't do my run - I tend to feel
somewhat sluggish.

Lately I've been skipping the morning run - and doing
one in the evening. It's not as good.

I will try to do both morning and evening runs - in
the New Year. I've got another reason for these runs.
My niece's wedding is coming up
early next year, and I want to look gorgeous...
(Ah, vanity)...

I never do New Years' Resolutions because I always try to achieve my goals.
I don't see the new year as something like a new start, for me it is just a reason to celebrate but not to make resolutions.

I will, I do every year, even mid year and season change, I make up my mind to eat better and walk much more.
And I fail each time.
My job has my total commitment, and its the right job for me, both gifts in life liking your job.
But it is endless stress, long hours, long road trips, some beginning hours before dawn.
And fast food just this once.
11am pie for breakfast.
Or 9pm fish and chips for tea while driving home.
Once walked for hours just because I wanted to, my legs no longer agree, I will make the same promise this year.

Foxy,

Good luck with your exercise program.

daltong2005

You donít make new years' resolutions. Fair enough. Do you have any plans to increase the amount of exercise you do?

Belly,

See below:

Health tip:

Don't sit down immediately after doing exercise. You may lose some of the benefit.

Thanks Steven , truly thanks, printed it out and will use it.
Tell you the strangest thing about us men, we seem to think we are too strong to need to stay fit.
I have a health problem that makes walking too far imposable.
I have type two diabetes.
And all that comes with it, but I am going to truly try this year, am already.
Later, after I catch up on my work related e mails, I will drive into a hidden bush creek and walk along its banks,as far as I can, maybe further next time, my little dogs will love it.
regards
