Sorry did not realize there is an exercise section too, maybe should have posted this there. Sorry, mods please move if this should be there.
I've been doing Curves. It works for me, and in fact a big reason I got started on my loss again this time around is I realized the location less than 1 mile from me, that is on the way home from work, that I always thought was closed, is actually open. I go M-Th daily after work, and on Saturdays. I like the program and am signed up for a year.
I'd kind of like to add something though, not to replace Curves, but to supplement it/alternate it with. I get terrible shin splints when I run(even before I was fat) so that's out. I realize very little actual calorie burning happens in my workouts, so I'm not really looking for that. I'm just realizing that I'm enjoying getting fit, and would like to get fitter. I tend to appreciate stretchy type exercise more than bouncing around sweating exercise. I love walking but don't live in a good walking neighborhood, and am not motivated enough to drive somewhere just to walk.
I do a very light routine w/3 lb handweights at home, and kinda think working with weights might be fun, but don't know much about what's involved as far as equipment/space. I suspect I would like the physical part of yoga but not the mental part (I can't "think of nothing'- I don't even understand how they can ask you that.) I kinda think karate or something like that may be fun. What are some of the things you're doing that are not too intense, but kinda fun exercise?
