Leslie Sansone walking tapes are really good for inside walking. There are different distances on the tapes fo you can do it as long as you want or as little as you want. I put it on music only because sometimes her constant talking drives me nuts! LOL Good Luck.


^^^^This I love her workouts. After I did her 3 mile walk I was sore as flip. It felt so good. Invest in some workout videos, get some weights, jump rope, do anything and everything you can to stay active during the winter.

I run in the pitch dark and in temperatures below freezing and even in snow storms. Get yourself a headlamp and some reflective gear, along with warm clothing and no need to change a thing.

I have a game for my Wii called Walk it Out, I really enjoy it and it gets a bit addictive at times. It's a game where every step you take in time to the music is a point and with your points, you buy items to build an island community with trees, shops, cars,streetlights, apartments, constellations in the sky, everything! There are facebook pages for it and if you check it out on Amazon.com and read the reviews or go to youtube, you can see more about it. I use my controller and the nunchuck in my pocket and I either walk,jog, or dance in place and I also have a mini trampoline I bounce on. The game will tell you how many steps you take and how many calories you burned. I think you can use your treadmill as long as it's near the TV. It helped me lose 25lbs over a year ago and now I am trying again.

I didn't read through all the comments (so sorry if someone already said this) but do you have room to jump rope inside? Or in a garage, right outside your house, etc.? You work up a good sweat and jump ropes are cheap. Google jump rope workouts ... I know I saw someone post one on here the other day, too, so you might try a search of the forums.

I just had a thought...you said walking was not an option. Is it because you don't have someone to help with your children? Are they to young to leave by themselves? If so, try to find an inside exercise for you and for them or just for you while they have playtime or homework time. Just a suggestion.

They walk back and forth on the Wall all the time and don't complain!

I highly recommend the Leslie Sansone walking DVD's! I have "Walk Fit...five really big miles" and I love it. You can walk one, all five, or in between. I actually prefer them to walking outside as I feel I get a better overall workout. I think there may be some online (youtube maybe) where you can watch some. I know she also is on QVC a lot and has a Facebook page.

lol...I was walking to my Leslie Sansone DVD yesterday and my 21 year old son was home. After watching for a while he says, "OMG, does she EVER shut up?" Yes, she is quite chatty, but it distracts me from wondering how much more time I have to go. Didn't realize there was a music only option. I will have to check that out.
