What Marion says about herself

atbHi, I am a passionate writer, so thank you for reading this – it’s good to write knowing that my words will be read.

10,000 steps and that 10 minute challenge !

Its great to be recommending 10,000 steps a day and suggesting that at least 10 minutes of these should be done at a brisk pace – good ideas and they will undoubtedly make a difference.  But what if you really can’t do that much – if the very thought just reduces you... read more
