After having my last baby, I knew it was time to work off the extra pounds. Sleep deprived and chubby, I fell for a TV commercial touting a great all-in-one exercise system. Three years later, it’s still parked in my basement. I admit it: I need the energy of classmates and a motivating instructor, so I joined a center two minutes from my house. I’m there twice a week, rain or shine. No surprise, I’ve lost the baby weight-and then some.
We all know we need to eat less and move more, but that doesn’t always translate into action. So whatever your excuse, I’ve got a solution. Many are free.
