Nintendo DS Health Coach

After just the most horrid week of work and leaky bathroom ceilings I have decided I can't wait until my holiday for a break. I need the day off. My holiday is 3 and a half weeks away and I've had enough of work. So I have decided to have Wednesday off to get some writing done. I plan to get some done this weekend but I've already planned a day of shopping so it would seem tomorrow is my only day. Once the weekend disappears a lot quicker than it arrived I shall pick up where I left off on Wednesday. I am praying for sunshine so I can write in the garden. A change of writing atmosphere might do me some good.

In other non-writing related news I have just weighed myself and I have lost half a stone in 5 weeks! I can't believe it. I put it all down to this:

It came with a free pedometer which is a bit huge=mongous but it really works. The programme sets you an amount of steps to do per day based on all your stats which really encourages you to get up and walk around more. I no longer wheel over to the filing cabinets on my chair at work, I actually get up and walk those 3 or 4 steps. I go walking at lunchtime instead of surfing the net. If you have a nintendo ds I really recommend this if your trying to lose weight or if you just want to get fit. It comes with loads of hints and tips for eating well and exercising and even sets you challenges for the day which you feel a little guilty if you don't complete.

Right I'm off shopping!!


  1. Hi Lily,

    Thanks, would love if you added my Hello blog to your blogroll! Great to hear you applied too, best of luck x

  2. Congratulations on the weight loss!! Your doing brilliantly :-)

    Hmmmm, I quite fancy a DS but I also quite fancy the Wii fit thing too!! My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks so I'm going to have to make my mind up pretty soon!!

    Good luck with the writing on Wednesday

  3. Thanks Laura, looking forward to more reviews!

    Carol - thank you. boyf has a wii fit which is also brilliant. the only difference is it doesnt fit in your handbag. I'd have both but not really worth it as me and boyf will move in together soon.
