I'm home-schooled so there's no PE for me to do and I'm not involved in a fitness program, except for the rare occasions I'm able to go to the gym. and now I'm not allowed take walks or jogs by myself because there's been a carjacking and people getting attacked and stolen from in my neighborhood a couple times. So I don't know what to do to get varied exercise routines in the small space that I have, I'd like to lose weight as well since I'm not in the "healthy zone" for my age and height. I'd like to have a diet plan, nothing extreme like the just cereal and water diet( which isn't healthy to do anyway). Any advice? and how much would weight lifting help? also I'm a female I don't know if that makes any difference..
