Free DVDs and exercise.

Hi all,

Looks like thanks to my friends at www.telstrabluelounge.com.au, we've got 5 new DVDs to watch - I won a competition and got Ray, Finding Neverland, The Aviator, Million Dollar Baby and Sideways.. not bad I say :)

We've also finished our first week of the exercise challenge.. we made it, although only just. I tend to walk after work, basically doing a big loop on my way home. Of course it used to be a half hour loop, and now it needs to be a 45 minute one so the loop is getting bigger each week :) Cheryl seems to walk more before work, or on her way to work. How is everybody else going? Getting through it?


  1. We started the challenge today -- yes, Danielle is all for fitness too -- with a fair bit of walking during the day, then a dedicated 20 minute walk after teatime.

    Tomorrow we're going for a walk in the morning instead, and then at night I begin a four-week "beginners kungfu" course. (I think it's to make sure you will continue the training.) I'm also going to check out the gym where kungfu is held, I think there's a pool and everything so it could be great.

    Danielle has found a course online that gets you into jogging in 16 weeks, so we're starting that with tomorrow's walk too! Time to get fit!

  2. you are so lucky. adam keeps going to the blue lounge to enter comps, but nothing so far. guess we don't have your luck! well done!!

  3. I don't know how you manage to win heaps of stuff, but I'm not complaining! :)

    I'm onto 25min walks this week. It's uni holidays right now so I'm not working as much, but I have more time for exercise. I'm finding it easier to walk in the mornings and then not have to worry about fitting it in later. Although I did enjoy the walk Damien and I did together after dinner last week (aw, how sweet!)

  4. Hey.. this last one was a game of skill. So were the movie tickets, actually. The phone was luck combined with persistance I think.. If I was really lucky, I'd win something useful like a house or a million dollars.

    Well done on the walking Glenn and Dee. Just don't overdo it by starting too many things at once.. be sure and stick to the 6 week challenge.
