I find that I don't exercise, especially if it requires going anywhere or using equipment. So, in order to exercise, I have come up with a set of things I can do in my bedroom (or wherever else in my house seems to work out that day). I start my 30 minutes with Jumping jacks (about 60) to get met heart going. In no particular order, I do push-ups, forward planks, standing crunches (start with arms held high. lift one leg and press both arms down as if you're lifting weights). I also sometimes twist my torso. I do leg lifts, super mans, and sometimes alternating leg/arm lifts (from position on hands and feet, straighten one arm and the opposite leg into the air).

I get bored with doing one thing for too long (part of that is probably because I'm so out of shape that I can't do any one thing for too long), probably a cause/effect of never having exercised regularly. Hence the list of exercises that I fit into my 30 minutes. With this "plan", I have exercised more in the last 4 weeks than I have in the last 10 or 15 years, which isn't saying much, but at the same time, it's saying a lot!

Thank you all for doing this and supporting everyone, this is changing my life for the better!

(Anyone up for another contest/support group? Haha)
