I'd be lying if I said I do this regularly, but I like to rent exercise videos from the library and try them out.

And I am no stranger to the One Woman Dance Party.

It's true, it's true. But if walking was enough, I wouldn't be trying to lose 30 pounds! That's the frustrating thing - on paper I have pretty good habits, but the waistband of my pants (the two pairs that still fit, that is) begs to differ. I suppose I was searching for stuff you can do in your living room.

but but, if you're walking every day you're already getting daily exercise.

See, this is where this losing weight thing bugs me. I already do a lot of the shortcuts most people do! I don't own a car, so I do walk. I don't drink soda at all. Grumble grumble grouse.

I guess One-Woman Dance Party it is. Maybe if I do it often enough, someday I'll be able to dance like a person without an inner ear disorder...

Thanks for your thoughts, everyone!

This is one thing that I have to work on. On days that I don't go to the gym I am either in a chair at the table or on the couch studying, watching TV or knitting. I live in an awkward neighborhood that's not near that much so its hard to walk anywhere to get errands done. I am normally up and walking to and from places all day on school days so I have a hard time finding get up and go in the evenings if I am not going to the gym.

i've been walking to the grocery store, hardware store, etc. when the weather's not absolutely crap. that way i get things done, and i get some exercise at the same time. same with home improvements lately, too. i burned a lot of calories painting (2 coats of primer, 2 coats of paint) my bedroom and gardening last week. it really made up for being on spring break and not having access to the gym.

I walk and bike. And I like to swim, but I have access to a pool.

I walk!

At least in the warming weather. During my lunch I used to do 3-5k.

I go to dance classes at least twice a week, and I'm starting to go to boxing fitness classes. However, I want to get some exercise every day. The best way I've figured out for this is something I call "One Woman Dance Party," but I'd like something more.

What exercise do you do regularly that doesn't require classes, a gym, or other people?
