So you can probably guess what my New Year's resolution is going to be...

I have two 25-lb. dumbbells and typical living room furniture. I need to workout - strength building, not cardio, for this question. Difficulty level: I can't make much noise, because my two-year-old will be asleep in the next room.

I need to start working out again, but it seems the only time I have is in the evening, when little man is asleep. I'd like to do three nights a week of strength training, so that I can vary up the workout each evening and focus on different areas.
I've seen stuff like 'combat fitness', with things like handstand push-ups, but I don't have the ability to do that sort of thing right out of the gate. Given that we have a smaller house, I don't want to have to get a Bowflex or something, either. So looking for workouts for different areas of the body using only living room furniture and two 25-lb. dumbbells.
FWIW, I'll be getting cardio three other nights of the week by jogging around the neighborhood. Assume that I'm somewhat stoic and will keep the mid-rep grunting to a minimum.
