OMG - I went jogging tonight

As I said in an earlier post, I have never exercised in my life. Since I started this diet I have been doing the wii fit and also for the past 3 weeks I have been walking as much as possible. I also have the aim to walk 10000 steps a day, minimum. Tonight I had only done 8500 at 10pm and so I decided I would take a walk around the block (takes about 10 mins and would take me over that magic number. But then I thought why walk, why not jog? This is because I really enjoy the free jogging on the wii fit. My daughter said she would come with me and so off we went. I onkly managed 3 short bursts of about 90 seconds or 2 mins each, but I did it and I felt really proud of myself.

I do have to say that the wii fit jogging bears no relation to actual jogging. I can do 40 mins on the wii fit and still be able to breathe, albeit rapidly. However, those short bursts tonight raised my heart rate into the high exercise bracket! I'm going to try and do it each evening until I can keep it going for longer and breathe properly.
