ALL IT TAKES: fifteen minutes, every other day
WHAT YOU DO: reverse lunges, glute raises and kick backs
IN FOUR WEEKS: Your fanny will be firmer
IN EIGHT WEEKS: You'll feel more grace and power in your stride as you climb stairs, jog around the block, or hike up hills.
REVERSE LUNGES: Stand tall with your feet hip-distance apart. Take a long step straight back with your right foot. Allow your right leg heel to come off the floor while keeping your weight balanced over your left leg. Looking forward with you back straight, slowly lower your body by bending at the knees until your left thigh is nearly parallel to the floor. Using the muscles in your rear, raise yourself to the starting position. After 12 repetitions, switch legs. Add a second set when the last few lunges become easy.
GLUTE RAISES: Lie on your back with... (view more)

I forgot to mention that another good place to look for exercises and health articles is magazines. Here's a few: Fit, Health, Self, Shape, Walking, and Prevention.

I know there are lots of you out there who know that you should exercise, but you don't. You tell other to exercise, but don't do it yourself. Well, pick something that you like to do. Try getting some exercise videos. I like those a whole lot better than going outside and doing something, especially in the winter. There's taebo and kickboxing and yoga and pilates and walk off the weight with Leslie Sansone (for sale at Meijer for about $7), and weight lifting, and so much more. In my personal opinion, videos make exercising so much more fun. Of course there are some exercise videos that aren't very good. So you gotta shop around. I know most of you are like me and can't afford to shop around that much, so see if your local library has any exercise videos. That's where I first discovered Leslie Sansone. I think she's a good instructor. You can also go on amazon.com and search... (view more)

A TONED TUMMY ALL IT TAKES: 15 minutes, 4 days a week
WHAT YOU DO: two crunches IN ONE MONTH: Your midsection will feel stronger, and your crunches will come easier.
IN TWO MONTHS: Your stomach will be flatter REVERSE CRUNCH: Lie on your back with knees up, hands behind your head, and ankles crossed. As you flex your abdominals, pull your knees toward your shoulders to lift your hips off the floor. At the same time, raise your head and shoulders. (If you're struggling, try lifting only your hips.) Hold for two counts. Do 8-12 repetitions.
STANDARD CRUNCH: Lie on your back with hands behind your head, your back flat, and knees bent. Point your toes up and press your heels against the floor as if you're about to scoot backward. Hold yourself in place by resisting with your abdominal muscles. With your stomach still tensed, raise your upper body until your shoulders are off the floor. Tuck in your head by imagining you're holding a tennis ball between your chin and chest. Lower. Do a set of 8-12 repetitions. In a month, add a set.

ALL IT TAKES: Ten minutes every other day
WHAT TO DO: One- and two-foot stair lifts
AFTER 4 WEEKS: You'll notice more power in your calves when you climb stairs or hike hills.
AFTER 8 weeks: Your calves will show more definition.
ONE FOOT STAIR LIFTS: Stand w/the ball of your left foot on the edge of a step and your right foot tucked behind your left ankle. Lightly rest one or both hands on a wall or railing for balance. Slowly raise yourself onto the ball of your left foot. Pause for a beat at the top of the move, and smoothly return to the starting position. Complete one set of 12, then switch legs.
TWO-FOOT STAIR LIFTS: Stand with the balls of both feet on the edge of a step and your feet shoulder width apart. Again, balance yourself with one or both hands on a wall of rail. Slowly raise yourself onto the balls of your feet. Hold the position for a second at the top of the move, then gradually lower yourself to the starting position. Do 2 sets of 12.

ALL IT TAKES: fifteen minutes three times a week
WHAT TO DO: Outer thigh lifts, with or without ankle weights, and inner thigh firmers
AFTER 4 WEEKS: You'll feel more leg power when you walk, run, or swim.
AFTER 10 WEEKS: You'll see new definition on your outer thighs and less giggle on your inner thighs.
OUTER THIGH LIFT: Lie on your left side, and prop your upper body nearly upright on your left forearm. With your left leg bent comfortably, extend your right leg at a 45-degree angle in front of you. Flex your right foot, and raise it about six inches off the floor (so it's about parallel to the floor) in a controlled motion. Hold for one count, then slowly lower the foot almost to the floor; start another lift without touching down. Do 10 reps. Then roll onto your right side and repeat. Do three sets with each leg.
