Hey ladies ;)
So as the winter draws near, so does the bear-like desire for me to prepare for hibernation. All I want to do is eat and sleep! (Although, to be perfectly honest, these symptoms are year-round)
What are some exercises you guys do that require minimal equipment but still gets your heart pumping?

If I'm alone (and that is a mandatory requirement), I'll put on thumping music and clean like a Tasmanian devil. I shimmy to the music and it really gets my heartrate going. I also love that I get a ton accomplished!
Of course if I'm ever alone, I usually don't want to clean house and would rather read a book. So I'm working on that one ;)

I hate going to the gym so I started yoga from http://www.yogatic.com/
To get motivated, I just hop on the scale. It works every time.
This lady literally changed my life. I can stretch and move certain parts I never thought I'd be able to. Now I never have to leave my room! =)
I'm going to have to try being more vigorous with my vacuuming, though. 125 calories is pretty good!

@annav, did you buy the DVD, or do you just go through the short vids every day or something??

I didn't buy the dvd, she has all the videos on her website for free and on youtube, too!

Oh and yes, I go through some of the videos everyday. I started with the Yoga for Weight loss and some of the arm/lower body exercises. I've been doing it for a couple of months so now I kind of mix it up myself, too.
