never...which is a really bad thing! i used to be pretty good a couple of years ago with going into the gym every day. then my last year of college i would do pilates and a bellydancing and aerobics dvd sometimes. now i do nothing! my computer is kinda messed up so i havent been able to run the dvds...and i dont have a mat to use for pilates (and i have hardwood floors). i really should start exercising though cause i need to lose weight!

This week, I'm highlighting three lower body exercises to help you prepare for the holidays and, hopefully, manage your weight while you enjoy the festivities. These are some of my favorite lower body moves for targeting the glutes, hips and thighs. Tack them on to your usual lower body workout or do them on their own, shooting for 1-3 sets of 10-16 reps. You can always add weights to the lunges and step ups for added intensity...just be sure to avoid these moves if they cause any pain or aggravate old injuries. This exercise is great because it targets all the muscles of the lower body. By using a resistance band, you can target the glutes and outer thighs. To do it, wrap a medium-heavy band under the feet and keep tension as you take a giant step to the right. Squat as low as you can while keeping the knees behind the toes and bring the feet back together. Continue stepping to the right for 8 or more steps then switch to the left.
