    Thanks @Brynmor

    I think this is great and needs to be permanently somewhere because people so often worry about how much exercise to do. Will be make it worse for instance.

    I found I needed to find the exercise for me which I like@Bryn and can incorporate into my daily life. When I was fitter and exercised more than my daily walk (and the 'Let's move' on here) I used to go to classes with a friend - that helped as you don't want to let them down!
