Right now, I'm just gearing up for weight loss, so my goal is to walk the lake 3 times a week. The lake(including my walk to it and back home) is a little over 3 miles.

This is on top of the 10 minute walk I do four times a day: to work, home for lunch, back to work, home for evening.

I know that I need to incorporate some other kind of workout into my regime. I used to be really into yoga, so I'm thinking about doing some videos on days that I don't walk.

I also don't own a car, so I usually do about 40 minutes of biking every weekend.

I am:

* walking 15 mins. everyday at work during my break.
* 30 mins. of some form of cardio at home right after I get home from work. I use the Exercise on Demand channel on my cable. If I can manage to haul my treadmill back upstairs from the basement, I will start the Couch to 5K.
* Spark generated strength training exercises on M,W,F.

This is my plan for the week. Not much, but I'm trying to get back into a groove.

I just google mapped how far it is from my house to my work. Turns out it's 4.5 miles....uphill. And I've decided to walk to or from work at least once a week. In April, I'm going to try to walk to & from work *everyday*. Is it sad that I'm gearing myself up for this 4 months in advance?

Also, I ordered a new workout DVD & told boysocky that I'd need to be in a room by myself for about 20 minutes every night. I love him, but I don't want him to watch me wince every time I do a lunge.

I really haven't developed a plan yet for workouts. My schedule varies from week to week, so I can't really do things like plan strength training for specific days of the week, etc. Today I will be roller skating for at least an hour. I am just happy to be doing something! Eventually I will develop a strength training plan--I miss my muscles!

I am curious as to the other glitterati's workout plans

Here's mine, since i go to a gym the strength exercises are done on machines or with free weights.
4 days a week, 2 days of each of these plans, 2 sets of 15-20 reps. Cardio each day for 30-45 minutes.

Days 1 and 3: Leg Press, Leg extension, Leg curl, adduction/abduction (2 sets each way), Calf Raises, Shoulder press, rear delt fly, abdominal crunches, rotary torso.

Day 2 and 4: Lat pulldown, low back extension, seated row, chest press, chest fly, bicep curl, tricep extension, standing cable curl, standing tricep extension.

After January I will change the strength moves slightly, maybe adding one more set if I feel good enough to do it, if not I will keep it at 2 sets.
