I would like to ideally lose the 12 pounds I have slowly gained over the past 9 years. I am a stay at home mom so would love it if I could have some input about what I can do from home; preferable brisk walking. I also have some hand weights as I would like to tone my upper arms a bit and would like to target toning in the thighs and tummy areas.
Any suggestions and/or sites that you can offer for me to look into would be appreciated as I'd love to start some sort of regimen soon. A gym membership is out of the question right now as we are trying to budget.
Well, I started brick walking today....went out for 20 minutes and will work up to about 40 minutes to an hour within a week or two. I found a great site through Family Circle magazine - 'Walk off the weight' There are some great recipes, exercise tips, and a plan to follow each week to work up to an ideal brisk walking schedule. I am very excited! I joined a gym last year but with 2 m/c in 8 months, I didn't get back there and decided that walking was manageable and I can do it at my own pace depending upon how I feel and yet, I still get some fresh air and exercise. Thanks for all the tips and sites that you have recommended. i will still refer to these as well when I need to 'shake it up' a bit :)Answer Question
do you have netflix? i do the workouts on that. there is a great video called total workout kickboxing and that toned my legs/thighs and arms and even tummy.
