@roweboat:  No AC?  Wow.  Harsh.

ETA: I used to jog in place, do crunches, and leg exercises in the house before I got to be super lazy.  Haha.

do you have a Wii?  Do you have AC at home?   I feel ya, maybe just reduce your caloric intake – I lost weight that way w/o exercising.  Drink water and no beverages with calories.  You could shed at least 5-10 pounds.

Have you tried any fitness DVD’s that you can do at home? I have a few from Jillian Michaels that are really tough but they are full body work outs and only take about 30 minutes.

@Carolyn72:  This is a really good tip too!! Cutting out soft drinks and alcohol makes a huge difference! Instead of getting beer, wine or a mixed cocktail, I would order a vodka soda which has way fewer calories.

Lots of gyms now are month to month with no year contract. If not a traditional gym, how about a pilates or yoga studio with set class times?

@out4answers:  haha you sound like me.  I’m on summer break from grad school and luckily didn’t need to get a job for the summer, just taking one summer class, but my Fiance kind of hates me since I don’t have any desire to do ANYTHING, while he is working 50 hours a week plus going to culinary school.  *sigh*  I weigh more than I ever have and I’d like to lose weight but… so lazy….

it’s damn hot in our non-insulated upstairs apartment in Los Angeles too, but wowwww no A/C and working all day in a factory? That’s nuts.  Is that even legal? I definitely wouldn’t work out after coming home from that 🙁

@Carolyn72:  This is pretty good if you don’t have time to workout – I lost a good 5kg with barely any changes to my fitness regime (which was nonexistant at the time!), just from being careful what I ate – it’s slow, but it works and leaves you feeling healthier! http://www.calorieking.com is a good site to show how many calories are in everything 🙂

Failing that, there are ways you can build incidental exercise into your day, whether that’s by getting off the bus a few blocks early and walking the rest of the way, riding a bike to work, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, getting a basket instead of a trolley when grocery shopping, the list goes on!
