My exercise of choice is walking and ever since doing Weightlossfordudes Lifestyle Change Challenge over the summer I have stuck to walking and tried to get out when I can to interesting places that are local. I love walking because:

  1. I can be outdoors
  2. It's free
  3. I lose more weight when walking
  4. I can do it at work
  5. I get to take pretty pictures and videos
On Friday I completed a 3.4 mile walk at my favourite local beauty spot whilst in the visitors centre I spied the Health Walks Series leaflets

I was excited as it will give me more local places to go walking. I picked up number 1 and 4 and have emailed the council to see if they can send me the rest of the series.

Each leaflet contains two walks with a map, route description, pictures, distances and how much time they think you may need. Below are more pictures.

I am hoping the council still have these in print but at least I have four walks that I can do which will allow me to do more exploring of the area I live in.


  1. That sounds really great! I'm so happy you found those leaflets.

    I discovered this spring many hidden treasures around my university campus that I had no idea existed. I'm sure it's the same with almost any area. Sometimes you do have to drive to get to the more interesting spots but I think you'd be surprised at how close many things are.

    Good luck with this and enjoy! It's the right time of year for you too (cold).

  2. I'm glad I found them just hope I can get the rest of the series and I can get proper stuck in now the weather is at it's best.

  3. Hi Gemma,

    I just wanted to say that I spent the last 10 minutes drooling over all your recipes! Especially the Oreo Cheesecake one! Yummy!!

    It's also good to see a fellow Brit on here!

    Congratulations on everything you've achieved so far!
