Life as a reformed Zookeeper. Now living a life as a working mother who dabbles in karate, scrapbooking, and Coors Light!

Working Out....

.... ok, so the pudgy little Zookeeper has joined the gym, and has experienced some of the cardio equipment there. She has not, however, tried many weight machines, other than the standard Hip Abductors, in efforts to tone her thunder thighs, which are the yuckiest part on her body, next to the "what? you're not realy pregnant?" stomach. For those of you who work out at a gym (or are lucky enough to have a weight system at home), what do you do with regards to strength training? There used to be a free site online that would help you with this, and it was very user-friendly for the good old Zookeeper. This, however, was also five years ago (yikes!!), and the site has since closed down. *sigh* Anyone have any FREE sites they go to for workout plan assistance?

BTW, the Zookeeper's scale said 155 this morning!! That's ten pounds lost since the big "freak-out" back in March. This gives the lowly Zookeeper hope that she just might be able to reach non-overweight status!

*******ETA***********
elliptical cross-trainer: 30 mins
torso rotator-thingy at the gym

I use sparkpeople.com. It not only gives you a good weight loss plan, but you can count calorie, and there is a long list of suggested exercises. They also show you a little demonstration video to make sure you are doing it right. Anyway - it has helped me with 10 pounds so far. Good Luck!
