Don't let "formal exercise programs" discourage you.... instead let you passion drive you to success! I've learned that I absolutely love dancing. Each of us has a different sweet spot. What ever your passion is, work it and work it consistently. Before you know it, you'll exceed your fitness goals.
When you find an activity you love, it helps you turn it into a healthy habit. I fell in love with bellydance and Anusara yoga. Instead of my life revolving around sedentary things, my life started to revolve around my activities. 414414
