Default I need to lose weight

Well, it's not really a need, more of a want. I don't need to lose weight, but being 21 and 200 lbs is not ok with me.

I'd work out at the gym with my boyfriend but we hardly get a chance to go over there.

I'm going to start telling myself to go walk two or three miles every day (in addition to eating better) but it is VERY cold here in northern Idaho so when I went out today for my first walk, I was freezing and the walk didn't warm me up at all.

I might try exercising at home, but I've never been good at that, the last one to pass the one mile track run in P.E. class in high school type of thing.

Would just doing push ups and sit ups in the little corner a few times each day or something help? (Assuming that after a few days I can actually do a /real/ push up.)

Any exercise will be good for. The great thing about exercise is once you make it a habit it becomes easier to do for extended periods of time and enjoyable.

if you have a couch or a low chair - anything that is a bit elevated - try doing step-ups. They are exactly as they sound. Just step up with one leg then the other. It doesn't sound like much, but trust me it will get your heart pumping after just one or two minutes. Also, if you have space skip in the house or even jog for a couple minutes on the spot. Start slow, but be consistent. Do it in front of the T.V. if you have one.

I used to be a fitness nut before I was crippled with severe arthritis. I gained weight. Wish I could have a new body.
