The past couple of years have been spent getting into shape. The first decision came around June, 2012, and involved going to a nearby gym. To supplement the workout, metabolic enhancers were purchased from a gas-station, the gym itself, and a local general store. Workouts were light, mainly hopping from one machine to the next, sampling each one. The determination was made that the weight loss wasn't happening fast enough, so in August, a weight-loss kit was purchased from the local G.N.C. This kit included a metabolic booster, some vitamins, some protein shakes, and a diet and exercise guide. The results were satisfactory, but the price was somewhat expensive; living on a fixed income, and unforeseen minor emergencies, made purchasing a kit per week less than feasible. Still, by that time, ten pounds were gone, and motivation to keep working out was high. In October, a move was made into a new apartment; a 1-bedroom unit, with plenty of space. Because of the new expenses, the gym membership was dropped, until the expenses were taken care of. Without regular dieting and exercise, 30 pounds were added. An effort to exercise every day was made; at first, doing Jack LaLanne's exercises, then doing Army P.T., but after a few months, no progress was made. A new gym opened up, and the decision was made to join. After another few months, two pounds were actually added, and no weight was lost. An appointment with the doctor was made, blood tests were run, and... there was nothing wrong with the blood. The doctor suggested a diet with no carbs, like the Atkins diet. After some research, an Atkins kit was obtained for free, and the diet was started. In addition to the diet, which has been followed for about three months and caused a loss of over 30 pounds, a new exercise regimen was started: four days of exercise, and three days of rest; isometrics for two days, and aerobics for two days. The isometrics consist of facial and neck workouts from Jack LaLanne's system, various types of push-ups (up to a total of 51 now), crunches/sit-ups (up to a total of 108 now), squats and lunges (up to a total of 60 now). The aerobic exercise consists of running. Eventually, more exercises will be added at a certain point, and the new schedule will be five days of exercise and two days of rest.

All you need to do is... do.

you dont need to follow a spiffy workout routine to  lose weight. Just workout. I find it best to find a weight that u can do 20 reps and still have energy left but have a nice burning sensation working up.

If you dont have any money, here are plenty of body excercises
do knee highs in place,
crunches,
swim kicks,
push ups,
jumping jacks (yup),
boxer bounces (i made this one up, is where you bounce from left to right repeatedly, tucking in them elbows as if bracing for a punch) you should be working your obliques.
SHADOW BOX!! its so easy to do and you need nothing.
lunges,
squats, even with 0 weight,
1 legged squats, use a chair so u dont need to raise the other leg to prevent hitting the ground,
go find some stairs, even if only like 30 steps and just jog up, walk down, repeat

put some music on and just go. dont worry to much about form or even rep amounts, just go at it. Once you feel in shape enough, then go for form, hit your rep marks and keep improving as time go ons.

After some discussions with certain people, the decision was made to move into someone else's house, and help pay the bills. Most time will be spent packing and moving, but once that's done, exercise will resume.

Pavel Tsatsouline, in his book The Naked Warrior, noted that doing one-handed pushups and pistols at low rep several times daily makes for a good full-body workout.


This reminds me, I have to get back into it...been slacking on my exercise and it's showing...
