    Woot!
    I was procrastinating too, not a real work out but I walked as far as I could, there's a neighbouring park which I went to but didnt walk around completely because it was dark and late on a saturday and I didnt want to fight with any of the drunks who were likely to be down there. Was good braving the night, even though it was warm, and getting back home again.

    Some people can't stand it. One friend prefers to walk/jog outside to zone and take in the sights. That or she prefers the strictness of choreographed dance classes. Another friend enjoys Muay Thai Kickboxing, likely because it challenges her body and has the reward of moving up in armbands.

    It's really dependent on who you are and what satiates you in the realm of exercise. It's never about the best, but the best for you.
    So what are your interests activity-wise? Do you like to be alone with your exercise, or around others with the same interest? Etc. Find what motivates you.
    Probably a huge reason in why people don't exercise enough is because it feels like work, or becomes too repetitive.
    These are interesting questions which I've been asking myself for a while, I read, that's pretty much what I do besides screen time and work, work can drain a lot of my extroversion and I've a few friendships but most of them are far flung or break down with people moving for work. At the time when I was fitest I used to walk, ALL THE TIME, I had a group of about a half dozen friends and we had no money, so we went out walking and talked while we walked and I found no temptation in food or drink so that helped too.

    I dream about being strong enough and physically fit enough to do some wild swimming without worrying about drowning.

    weights. burns more calories than jogging, builds muscle, burns fat and the added muscle requires more calories to maintain. therefore, without changing your diet, you will loose weight simply by having muscle as it feeds off the fat indirectly.

    Swimming meets all the usual criteria - including that of not stressing on joints

    I was a crazy about gym and cardio. I stopped working out of other commitments almost an year ago. Then I got fat. Now I'm fat.

    Gonna get back in shape starting asap, which is probably May.

    Yes! I believe swimming is commonly believed to be the best exercise overall, no impact like running...

    (For me... Running is the best because it is the most effective way to elevate my mood. )

    I say change it up.. Work out DVDs are always what I advocate because no one can see you at home. If you have a low body image. Though.. I think working on that body image is essential. It shouldn't matter what others think about how you look.. so maybe making yourself go swim would be good for you. But I like to combine going out to gym, working out at home, and going outside for something. I think you can't lose with those three things.

    well the fact that you're sedentary, plus you're so picky.
    the best exercise is anything that gets you moving.

    i recommend you to checkout leslie sansone's walk at home
    http://www.walkathome.com/ (you'll either have to buy or find downloads. )

    1. you dont need any props
    2. you have a computer to watch it on
    3. you can do it in the privacy of your own home.

    just start moving, if you can only do ten minutes, do ten minutes.
    better than doing nothing. and next day build it to 15 minutes.

    it's not so much finding the best exercise as to wanting to change
    the sedentary lifestyle and incorporating consistent active activities
    into it.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.
