I'm 19 years old and around 5'8" probably. Last time I went to the doctor, I weighed in around 115 pounds (I'm female). I've always been pretty skinny. Lately though, since I've started my new job, I've been eating a lot of unhealthy crap and I've begun to put on a little bit of extra weight. Now I want to stop this problem before it gets any worse, so I'm cutting myself off from all of the stuff that they sell there that I've been snacking on. I also want to start exercising though, since that's something that I've been neglecting since I've moved into this neighborhood.
My problem is, I don't know what kind of routine I should start. The house itself is tiny. There's no room for any kind of fitness equipment or for me to do any real exercising inside because it's so small. There also aren't any gyms close by. I already spend a lot of gas money going to and from work every day, so I really wouldn't want to invest in a gym membership anyway, which leaves me to outdoor activities in my neighborhood. I've considered walking and jogging every day, but will that be enough to stay in shape? I don't need to be super fit or anything like that, I just don't want any extra weight hanging around. I used to walk about thirty minutes a day in my old neighborhood and that seemed to be working fine for me, but since I am not really experienced in using any kind of specific exercise routine, I really have no idea how much exercise is enough. Would buying a bike be a good investment as well? I've always enjoyed biking, but I have no idea how that compares to just walking or jogging every day.
