trying but where 2 start??

[:I]i've always wanted to keep toned and i've tryed entering the gym, but gets a bit uncomfortable and costly. My son makes it differcult to eat right an train hard. i've been doing an execise video which incorperates everything,last for about 1h30mins i've moved on to a bit of weight through the routine (1kg Db). I do this every monday morning, i only have evenings and weekends spare to fit in some kind of routine that will make me stronger and muscler. I have no equitment an want my arms better. I've looked round and read a lot i'am now total confused as to where to start an what it all means.

    Hi and welcome to MT!! For a start if you want to get toned then I think you need to invest in some heavier dumbbells. Everyone has to start somewhere I know, but I'm certain you will be able to lift more than 1kg. Don't just think about training the arms but all of the body otherwise you would look a little strange. There are some good routines in the training section on this site but you will need to visit a gym to do many of these or at least have more equipment at home. I don't mean to sound harsh but don't use your son as an excuse to eat the wrong foods....you can do it if you set your mind to it and get yourself into some form of routine. Chicken is ok to eat if you don't like fish but you need to make sure you get some good fats in your diet....post a question on the diet section with a basic days food intake and the guys will help you there. Have a good read through the board and I'm sure you'll get some good ideas.

    There are some guys on here that train at home, perhaps they can answer this better than me! Have a look in the directory (link at top of page) there may be some equipment suppliers in there.

    you'll definitely need more than 1kg :) if you can't afford much equipment to start with perhaps you could do lots of body weight exercises - squats, push ups, dips, chins - to build a strength base. and buy equipment gradually when you can afford it? you could make your son part of your fitness lifestyle - you could do chins when you take him to the park, go rollerblading, bike riding or swimming together etc. he'll probably end up loving you even more for it :) good luck!

    Thank-you kitty,
    cheers for the push, you both are right.
    i've had a look round and all is coming together, at my son's park there is 2 piecie of equipment, who would have thought of the park.
