I need a weightloss exercise program, any advice?

Here are my stats

I am female
28 years old
5′ 6
196 lbs

I used to be very in shape and play a lot of sports but excuses aside (I did have some medical problems for years) I want to get back into shape.

My goals weight is: 140 lbs.

I eat good meal choices but my snacks are the killers, I need an exercise program that will help me tone and trim down. I have a treadmill at home, it only has a level 2 incline on it and I enjoy power walking on it. I also have an exercise ball, a small bally ball for crunches and a total gym as well as 2 lbs free weights.

Does anyone know of a good program that I can stick to that will allow me to get to my goal weight in a year. I think I could lose 50 lbs in a year if I really work at it. Does that sound feasible?

Also, what should my caloric intake be if I want to lose an average of 1 to 2 lbs a week? and how much should I be working out during the week?

How can I add weight to my crunches without using a medicine ball?

I don’t own a medicine ball and would like to add weight to my crunches so I don’t need to do 800+ of them to feel anything. I do all different kinds of core exercises and I’d like to add some resistance to them.

Any ideas? I’ve tried free weights but that just feels really uncomfortable.

Thx a mill.
I know how to do a correct crunch, my neck does not hurt after, and my abs are really strong. I do all different kinds and work different areas… think about it. Several sets of 25 on each area… dumbass!

Stability Ball Crunch – Better than Floor Crunches six pack Personal Trainer Michael Behnken, MS, NASM-CPT-PES, CSCS Stability ball crunches are what makes the stability ball worth the money you pay for it. The number 1 thing to not do, is move the ball while you do crunches. To increase the difficulty of the stability ball crunch you should just move your hips up towards the top of the ball. With your hands behind your head, this should provide more than enough resistance to get a great abdominal contraction. Make sure you not only crunch your abdominals (rectus abdominis), but draw in your core (transverse abdominis). There are many ways to modify the stability ball crunch, but make sure to use correct form and master this standard version first. Neither this crunch nor any core or abs exercise will get you the elusive 6pack abs or six pack washboard stomach alone. If you have excess fat around your mid section you should learn all about it.

Home ab workout: crunch exercise for 6-pack abs

Don’t let the TV ads convince you to buy some bulky contraption that will gather dust in your closet, crunches are safe and effective! This video clip shows how to do crunches with varying degrees of difficulty based on your ability. Remember that ab exercises alone will not give you abs! If you have the best abs in the world they will be completely invisible if you are overweight. Aerobic exercise and proper diet are even more important than ab exercises in getting that sought after 6-pack. Form is very important in crunches, many people do them incorrectly and end up working out their neck or hips more than their abs. Use slow movements and only use the abs. Concentrate on trying to raise your shoulders straight up towards the ceiling. Don’t worry about how many reps you do but focus on using perfect form. No whipping the head around or flapping your arms! This is not a sit-up either, the hips are stationary. Also important is to minimize any tension in the neck, I do this by very lightly supporting my head with my hands or the weight plate The main reason to workout abs is because strong abs stabilize your lower back and shield you from injury but as a side benefit a 6-pack looks great! For more ab exercises: Nutrition is key to getting abs! I cover the nutrition basics on my website, if thats not detailed enough for you I have reviewed and recommended some excellent books: scoobysworkshop.comAnyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better
