Walking is great exercise. For indoors, you can use Walking Away The Pounds DVDs which a lot of people seem to like.

stephj I am right with you. I can't seem to get motivated to do regular exercising. I may have to check out one of those DVDs for walking. Part of me...the little bratty kid inside is saying "I don't want 2 and I don't have 2 <rasberry>!

What 2 do? What 2 do? Like I have said before...I guess it is putting one foot in front of the other and just doing it! Good luck 2 you...if you find some extra inspiration will you send a little my way? <smile>

Find something you like doing! Where i live our cable company offers free on demand fitness videos and the video store (Family Video) offers free fitness dvd rentals. Try out some things, see what you like!

It really helped me start exercising again after my son was born to decide i wanted to do something fitness related. I decided to start signing up for runs, and for this i would recommend the Couch to 5K program, which can be found on coolrunning.com.

There are some good reviews/opinions on various videos in the Fitness Video Forum.

Also, when the weather is nicer i go for stroller walks at a near by park which is up 7 down hills the whole way with a close friend. They are so fun, and we usually grab a light lunch after.

WORKOUT PLAN, YOU MAY SWITCH THESE DAILY IF YOU WOULD LIKE,



#1 2MIN- UP, DOWN STAIRS
#2 2MIN- JUMP N JACKS
#3 1MIN- PUSH UPS

#5 2MIN- STANDING CURLS
#6 3MIN- JOGGING IN PLACE

BETWEEN EAT OF THESE YOU TAKE A 1 MIN BREAK, IF YOUR LIKE ME AN DON'T HAVE STAIRS REPEAT #5. THE PUSH UP YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR KNEES ON THE FLOOR.
