Well, I mix things up as much as I can for not having a gym membership or a treadmill at home. I have free weights, exercise ball, exercise bands, workout dvd's. I try and do kickboxing a lot because I love it, but then on the weekends I will go the park and run. Then every other day, I try and do interval traning of some sort to get my heart rate up. Part of the problem is that I don't eat as great as I did before. I mean I eat healthy, but I was really watching it back then! I mean every little thing! I was eating salads every time we went out and I skipped a lot of junk on special occasions. I just need to get back into really watching it. I still watch what I eat and I eat single servings at dinner and lunch, but I'm just not as good about it as I was before. So that is partly my problem. According to my heart monitor, I am still burning about 5,000 calories a week! That isn't too shabby!
