Dear Randy, I called the other day to find out if they can offer teaching of certain exercises I can use at home to deal with some particular problems I'm having with my body regarding certain changes; I'm aging, a 52-year-old woman now-cellulite on upper arms and on thighs and weak abdominal muscles ...

I'd asked the doctor about these and she sorta sloughed it off, saying it was genetic with the cellulite and that's all she said. I don't have a lot of extra time/energy after work with some life issues I'm dealing with and being involved at my church more and more and keeping generally busy with various things and I'd prefer to know some simple exercises that don't require lots of expensive equipment.
I jog indoors (and use an stationary exercise bicycle alternately at times) and I have some little arm weights (5 pounds each) that fit in each hand. I also like to walk outdoors when it's nice. Have walked inside skywalk in cold weather as well for exercise. They gave me your email address, saying to contact you about this matter. Thanks for your time and attention and I'll look forward to hearing back from you about what I can do to help these problems in fitness I'm experiencing, Randy!
I'm 42-years old. If I was to tell you to do a million ["a model" said in a fitness magazine she does a million lunges five days per week] tricep kickback's (an exercise that focuses on the upper underside of the arm) per week, and if I was to let you in on a secret that tricep kickback's do not work because it yields no effect in benefiting you to lose your supposed "genetic cellulite" but only makes you feel good you are doing something about this certain area would you still do triceps kickbacks?
Yet, if I was to tell you to eat smart(er), exercise regularly three times per week (which does not include the everyday movement of daily "walking"), and do this outside the home would you comply? I don't know. You'd have to answer these questions yourself, and answer them honestly without making excuses (i.e., the non-compliant person) not to move and not to eat smart.
The first rule of health and fitness is that you must adhere to what I call a "psyche-ology" of fitness, that is, a stimulation of your inner psyche to possess the proper attitude or frame of mind to initiate or cause the second rule of change (in your case a change in health and fitness), which is the physiology of the habit of accommodation.
Habit of accommodation is failing to rid a stimuli-exciting feeling. In other words, for change to occur you must have stimuli-exciting feeling. This second rule appears to be in riddle form to most people who adhere to non-compliance but is not to those who abide to compliance for stimuli-exciting feeling to initiate change.
So, who is your favorite philosopher or adopted philosophy of life? Why am I asking you and extending this question to others? Change begins in the mind.
If you are still with me, what I am saying is this: First, non-compliance is an issue most people face and unfortunately becomes a reality for most when "talking about" getting something done, especially that which is really good for the body, in your case better health and fitness. Frankly speaking, "home workouts" are to no avail because they DO NOT give you the results you might desire [at your age].
You need to get out and join a health facility. Get together with me so I can help you get through the "particular problems" you are having to overcome them to empower yourself for self-sufficiency. Separate yourself from others: become a compliant person comported to action to do something, which is really good for the body.
Second, you are kidding yourself when you say you have no time and energy (you have no energy because you neither exercise [our everyday movement for "walking" doesn't count] nor are you in not the best of health) or make the excuse that you are "too busy." Excusing yourself saying you are "too busy" not to do something that is really good for the body is the most widely used excuse.
If going to church is causing your health to deteriorate then limit your church involvement. It's a simple decision. Decisions you have made and continue to make prevents you from getting healthier and fit. This is a sign of non-compliance.
The U.S. Government spends more than $20 billion per year on health-related diseases that are preventable by those who fall victim to non-compliance from being inactive, overweight or obese. In short, we need to move more and eat less! People need to comply and STOP making excuses not to engage in exercise (not just getting around everyday) and STOP doing what is really bad for them!
