Last year for lent I gave up sweets. I thought it would be good time for a life style change. I started to eat healthier too. To complete the change I needed to exercise. I am too cheap to join a gym. It rains often where I live. So I googled "exercise DVDs for fat lazy people".(I don't use those words often). Scary, sad or funny, I got some hits! Leslie Sansone walking DVDs. They are 1 to 5 miles. Easy and simple inside your own home. I listen to audio books while I do it. I had a shift change at work so I got off track.
I would suggest these to anyone. My Dh does them with me.
