If study is interested in milk, we have it delivered by our milkman and it's the full fat milk.

I have Endomondo on my phone and have used it during my daily walk - usually 60 to 90 minutes a day. it tells me I've walked 175 km so far this month! However, my other half uses the same app and we walk together and he seems to have done more?! Not sure how this is!

Is *milk* essential, or would (say) soya milk (or other form of protein) suffice?

I've found lockdown to be a time to enjoy walking more. We've been very fortunate with the weather and that has motivated me. I normally gym, swim and zumba each week so decided to replace those exercises with power walking. Eight weeks ago I began to walk in the countryside near where I live. We've lived here nearly three years but I've only walked it a very little till now. So I started with just going where I fancied enjoying the weather, nature, quietude and of course the exercise. I began to record my walks just in a brief way. As the weeks passed the most marvellous thing has happened - I've walked further and further and am now walking 13/14 miles every couple or few days within 3 to 3 1/2 hours. I'm thrilled and frankly can't believe it. I'm so excited and motivated to maintain and possibly further improve. I've lost weight and so on.

I agree that motivation is very important to achieving any exercise unless it comes by way of doing something else!

Also - quick wins help a great deal. I'm trying to improve my balance and by standing on one foot for just a short time (30 secs!) each morning and night for only a few days is easy - and what's more is that I'v e already seen some improvement.

One practical thing I've learnt, after my daughter-in-law enlisted me into at home Zoom Zumba, Weights etc - is find a hard floor to 'work-out' at home - rather than carpet. Not that it made for any improvement in my abilities :) but it does make moving the feet much easier.

On the basis that I've passed the age when one loses 40% of muscle strength, we need to be made aware that exercise does have many bonuses - both physically and mentally. The problem is doing what is best for ourselves, while experiencing off-putting barriers - both physically and mentally.
