I've got questions, and I'm hoping y'all can point me in the right direction.
I'm 33 and have been overweight my whole life. Last February, something clicked, and I finally decided to get fit and healthy. I gave up sweets - cold turkey!
and started running and walking every day. It's gone well. I've lost about 42 pounds so far and am lighter and healthier than I've been since high school. Yay!
The dilemma: I know that I need to start strength training to tone up, get stronger and help me to lose the last 30-40 (I'm not sure of my goal weight) pounds. Joining a gym isn't reallly an option at this point, nor is storing much equipment in my tiny house. That said, I'm hoping someone can point me to some exercises that I can do using my own weight (still plenty of that!) as resistance - I do pushups and tricep dips now, but that's about it.
So, girls...I'm at your mercy
any web sites, exercises or books you can share would be much appreciated! Also, any suggestions for one or 2 pieces of exercise equipment that would be helpful?
Thanks a bunch!
