Any suggestions about anything simple around the house I can be doing to help myself out since I cant get to a gym? I have stairs, so I know that I can be walking/running them, but other then that Have no idea anything to do just around my house.

I do a lot of videos...Turbo Jam, Biggest Loser, Walk Away the Pounds, etc. Can you get some of those, rent some, or find some on tv (Fit Tv, Discovery Health Channel, Veria, etc.)? Otherwise, possibly dancing, jumping rope, and using your stairs would be good ideas. Good luck!

Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!

I do a lot of dvds, but I have been known to make up my own workout. Stair climbing (real stairs) is great. Just don't do too much too fast with that or you won't be able to walk.. btdt. Um, I also do jump rope too sometimes. Strength training is another good thing to do. You can buy a set of 5 pound weights really cheap and there are a ton of exercises you can do with them. Bicep curls, tricep curls, squats, lunges, shoulder raises, lateral raise, oh a lot more. You can also do ab workouts pretty easy at home too.

There are all kinds of things you can do with weights, or even without the weights just doing the movements. You can also do some web searches for exercise databases that show exercises you can do anywhere. I posted several places in the weekly exercise challenge thread that I'd suggest you look at to get some ideas and then just do them without the weights or other equipment.
