The next step

Ok, so while I wouldn't look as good as these ladies do exercising, if I start exercising, one day I hope to. I have made my mind up to curb my eating and make better choices, now I have to move (no pun intended) into the realm of moving. We can't afford a gym at this time so I am going to have to find an alternate way of getting my body in motion. I have two work out DVD's but I live in an upstairs apt in Cali so I don't think it's a good idear for my 350 pound body to be jumping up and down to the firm. Can you imagine my neighbors pictures falling off the wall and things rattling on their shelves scaring them so bad that they run outside screaming "Earthquake!!!" only to find that it's just their upstairs neighbor getting her exercise on. Not good. So I am going to begin to take my bebes and go for a walk. I think that they will enjoy it and it's a start. Hey, anything is better than nothing, and something is better than anything.

You are so funny! I'm working on trying to get myself into some sort of routine too. This morning I got up at 6 and did yoga. I am so pitifully out of shape Nothing I did looked like what he was doing on the video. lol

I think I'll feel a lot better if I get up and do that everyday, then read the Bible and spend time with God before the kids are up and the insanity starts. Sounds like you have a good plan too. Good luck! :o)

Good luck as you get started on the exercise regimen...I think walking is a great start and I am sure the babies will love love love it!

Good luck!

Walking is a great way to start. I started at 270 pounds just walking during my lunch hour for 40 minutes every day - now I have lost 30 lbs and I am starting to jog (the Couch to 5K program)- the hard bit is getying started!

Take it easy and don't rock the!

Walking is a great start. It's a nice easy can start at your own pace and then as you progress - you walk faster or further.... How hard you work it, is totally up to you. I've been walking for a month now and still going strong.... and you are right, something is definately better than nothing!

Walking with your stunning babies is a fantastic way to start, and continue! Consistent walking is a proven success for weight management! Start of taking it easy and as your fitness increases so should your pace and try and throw a few hills in. I push my 2.5 year old and 4 month old in a double pram and I worked out that all together it weighs 30 kilos which is about -what? 60 something pound. THAT gets the heart pumping darls.
