The Nutritionist

Hi. I am a first time stay at home mother of a one year old. I would like to know if you can give me some advice on what exercises I can do if I don''t have any machines or tools to workout with. I can''t walk outside with my daughter because of the weather. I do all the chores here and run around with my daughter, but itís not taking any pounds off. I weigh 175 pounds and am 5 feet 4 inches tall. Iím 21 and still want to feel young. Please help me. Thanks so much.
