I have a whole gym of exercise equipment and tonight I started to pull some out. I have a step, rower trampoline,treadmill bicycle stationary, but some have to be repaired. They are old and where used but when I was sick they got put aside. Some of the rollers are so old they have fallen apart.
I have been using the Wii with Dance Dance Revolution 3 and two dance mats. The kids get to alternate on one mat and I stay on the other for a full 60 minute workout. Everyone is happy and mom is sweating bullets. The kids don't have to be good at it, they just like to spend time with me exercising
I live in an area where is rains more often than it doesn't... so walking outside can be challenging. To keep up with my 10,000 steps a day program, I use the Leslie Sansone walking DVDs. I highly recommend them for beginners or any walker... they are great for those days when you can't get out.
Some words to live (and exercise) by!
If I am dreading my work out, I stop thinking about it and just do it! I get up and I go to the gym or I get up and get on my step aerobic bench. If I think about how much I don't want to do it too long I'll make up excuses for reasons to procrastinate or not go!
