I got a hula hoop from Santa!
I also do lunges - front and lateral, squats, marching in place, jumping jacks, skipping, small hand weights, crunches. You're only limited by your imagination!
One workout at a time, one meal at a time, one day at a time, one pound at a time. Just keep trying!

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.
This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?
It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

are you wanting cardio or strength? Sometimes when I feel like I've been watching too much tv...I will do lunges around the room, crunches, pushups.
You could jump rope if you have enough room, jumping jacks, jog in place.
Do you exercise for 15 minutes while watching t.v.? I am a newbie and that is one of my goals. As silly as it sounds I am not sure what kinds of exercises to do to meet that goal? Can anyone give me suggestions as to what types of exercises I can do for 15 minutes during t.v. time?
