I'm having trouble finding exercises that will work for me in the long term. Perhaps you know someone who has been in a similar situation. Inside:

+ BMI : 26.7
+ Female... tomboy... thingy... if it matters.
+ Extremely clumsy.
+ Get bored easily. And I don't like movies or TV at all, is there anything else to distract me? Listening to music sometimes helps... but not for long.
+ Anti-social :-D so I don't want to exercise with others.
+ Victim of IBS D-: so I don't want to exercise with others.
I really like pilates and yoga, but seeing those bimbo toothpick or bodybuilder models in DVD / fitness video-games / gym has always put me in a really bad mood for days... If you have exercise videos with "normal", average people, please do send them my way!
Have Hyperthyroidism which means:
- intolerance to heat, very high and irregular heart beat,
- bone weakness, and sometimes bone pain throughout the day (weight-lifting is good for bone density, right?)
At home, I have:
+ a stationary bike - I like it a lot, but like I said, I get bored easily.
+ 2 lb, 5 lb weights - ok, but what do I do with them? :P
+ Exercise mats
There's no public transport here so I can't go to the gym.
I'm not interested in diet tips, because I've always eaten healthy meals.
I don't want to run.
Do know know any exercises that would work for me?
Really thank you for advice and encouragement given :)
