Stretchy time and Harvard health are great workouts

Im definitely gonna try the stretchy time. The Harvard ones seem a bit far fetched right now. But im definitely gonna keep working towards it all.

Using eeight loss as a motivation leads to failure a lot of times. It's ok to have a weight loss goal, but find something else to motivate you, like establishing a healthy lifestyle (works with the smoking goal also). If this is your motivation try to pay special attention to how working out and not smoking make you feel (more energy, less fatigue, etc...). Take time to write it in a journal, fb, or anywhere you can refer back to when you go through times when you aren't motivated (we all have those days).

No one starts out as a pro. I started doing yoga teamed with working out (definitely going to need to work on the yoga poses lol) and though I've always been
pretty active until i moved to a bigger city and got lazy. I'm out of shape and used to be very flexible, but over these past 2 years Ive come to find that all that has gone and i need to build myself back up. Motivation seems harder to find after you have kids, because with that come a more hectic schedule, butI try to let my son be my motivation. Just to remind him to stay active. Sometime, I let him do MILD workouts with me. Its fun for him and he keeps me going. Maybe that methods will work for you as well.

Find some quick warm ups and stretches. I know there are a lot of "stretches" on this app that are more like intense workouts for beginners. You just gotta filter through all that.

But start out by doing some cardio workouts about 3 times a week with a day off inbetween. The time can range from 10-30 minutes but you need to find cardio workouts that have moments where you up your intensity.
