I always wear tracksuit bottoms to yoga! Have to say I hate making bodily contact with another person during yoga. Unfortunately our locel lesiure cenre is being rebuilt so we have 22 people crammed into a tight studio.

I am interested in dieting and maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle. From a high of 15st4lbs I am now 11st10lbs.
My lifestyle is quite sedantary as I write website company reviews of poker sites for a poker blog. Main forms of exercise are swimming, walking, football and squash.
