I want to be fit! I have been losing weight through dieting, but feel fairly cardio vascularly un-conditioned. I am fairly young and have no real pain or health issues, can walk forever without getting winded but to see me run for more than I short sprint is sad. Thought of starting with a bootcamp style class, but I am a night shift nurse with babies and that does not really fit my schedule, plus it was way expensive. What can i do to challenge myself and get fit/tone? I do have access to a basic gym.

I can HIGHLY recommend this:

I figured it would be easier to post a link than to write the whole thing again. Smile

This works, it's fun, it's efficient, it's NOT time consuming. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Do whatever you can! You have to start somewhere and if you would like to run start by doing intervals of walking and running and eventually you'll build up your stamina. I prefer to use DVD's because I think they're fun and having the workouts already laid out for me makes it easy, and I can't afford the gym classes either but can affort the $10 for a DVD. Kingkeld's workout is a great option too, especially if you don't have a lot of time and you can get it done in the basic gym. Really, it's all about what keeps you going, and you can take your time and build up to something, you aren't going to be working out at athelete level on day one. Smile
Goals for 2015:
Start a running program
Sign up & complete a 5K- Done
Get a bike and use it!

Another great place to start - regardless of size. Smile Start with level one, and work your way up in your own pace. I did this for a long time, and you'll be amazed of the results you can get from it.

A total body workout routine is a great way to stay fit, healthy, and energetic. Rather than focus on the same muscle group every time you hit the gym, it's important to concentrate on your body as a whole. Planning a total body workout routine can help you tone and tighten your entire body -- from shoulders to calves -- leaving you with a complete feeling of satisfaction and balance. http://garciniatruth.com/

Yes, that is true, but for some interesting reading, google "Why the scales lie" and learn the myths and truths about what the scale is really telling you.
