Ben Nevis Summit

Ben Nevis Summit

Long Distance Hill Walking...!

Completing “The West Highland Way” once in May of 2007 would be enough for anyone; But my good friend John; has come up with another "crazy idea" that this year, we could walk the W.H.W. Again!

If you’re not familiar with the W.H.W. It is a Long Distance Hill Walk starting in Mulgavie Glasgow, and finishes in Fort William, some 97 miles later.

Mind you, it is a walk with breathtaking views; and some serious, "Lung Busting Climbs"

But this time John and Mick thought he would make it interesting by adding on the fact that we can; climb Ben Nevis while we are in Fort William...??? Hold on; there's more!!

Then we can carry on and walkThe Great Glenn Way” from Fort William to Inverness...!!!! This totals 200 miles plus; over 10 days, and a quick trip to the top of Ben Nevis.

Well, all I can say is, John; you were spot on mate; I would not have missed my chance to climb the famous Ben Nevis.

Even though I never thought that I would? For anyone reading this blog; if you are in reasonable health, and you like a challenge; you will not be sorry...!!! On a serious note…


The Mountain Trail of Ben Nevis, {A K A, The Tourist Trail} is a full 4 to 6 hours of serious uphill walking depending on how fit you are.

Then you got 3 to 5 hours of hard downhill walking. You must not treat it like a walk in the park! Climbing Ben Nevis is a serious challenge?

You must be prepared and you must carry all the necessary kit that you will need for the day...???

Like Food and Water,

At least 4Ltrs. Safety Equipment, Cold Weather Gear, Spare Boots, First Aid Kit, Whistle, Torch, Compass, and Wet Weather outfit, and a Survival Bag.

So as you can tell by this list... this challenge is definitely not to be taken lightly...

Now; having said all that; you will absolutely love it when you reach the top. There is no other feeling in the world to compare to it;

The sense of achievement is overwhelming, coupled with the feeling of elation. "You Can't Beat It" And you will NEVER” forget it!

Lose Weight From Walking for Exercise.

Join a Gym, go to Swimming Class, Start Jogging, Join a Slimming Club, Do Yoga, Do Pilate's, Buy these Magic Pills, You Need this $200 Program! Yeah right...!!! Go on a Diet... That's the easiest way...!!! That's what I will do... 

O K, So now what...? You have made up your mind, but wait... You need help; you don't know where to go to get it. Who should you ask, where should you go, which one is best! Which one is right for me? Are any of them right for me? Well, I believe, ONLY DOCTORS should tell you IF you NEED to DIET...!!! Go and see Yours First…!!!

 Confused already...? And you still don't know where to start...??? You could start the right way like this... to start any, Diet, Health Plan, Exercise, Weight-Loss, or Fitness Routine; the first place to visit is, YOUR DOCTOR...!!!

This is a very IMPORTANT STEP... More so if you have not exercised for a few years. I do not agree with Dieting of any sort. Especially, if you do not suffer with any health issues, and you are relatively active.

Having said that; I do understand that in some cases it is a necessity, and that sensible supervised diets are a must for many people but only if advised by your Doctor. {I cannot stress this point enough}

I know a few compulsive dieters; they start with the latest new craze diet,

{No good?}

 Try this one from America, works for the film stars, sure to work for me!!

{No good?}

This girl I work with; has this amazing new diet pill, she has only been taken it for three days and has lost 4 stone in weight..!!!

{OH PLEASE} There are some excellent diet routines on the market that work amazingly well for millions of people.

That goes without saying. But you need to know if you need a diet program before you actually do it. You could be doing more harm than good;

Please be sensible if you really want to lose some weight and get fit at the same time, try exercising and healthy eating first, before you decide to look at diets. Diets don't suite everyone. As soon as your head says; DIET... Your belly says; I WANT... Don't you just know it?

Try something else first; Try Walking to get in shape and to get fit... Build up slowly, and see your weight decrease slowly over time. It works, I know, I have done it. Combine your walking with healthy eating and you are on a winner, and its cost you next to nothing try it out.

Its fun, it's free, it's good for you, and it works!
