So I've began to notice lately that although I'm not by any means fat, I've got some pounds starting to pack on also I'm weak as hell. Although I'm still at my normal weight, the difference is what that weight is; over the past few years, I've gotten less physically active (from having to bike and walk everywhere in Satan's Asscrack, Texas with my friends to having no friends and staying at home and driving everywhere haha I'm so lonely) and so even though I'm the same weight, more of it is chub and less muscle. And so I have the beginnings of some chub going on. And I am not happy with this. Unfortunately, there is just so much information out there and I know less than nothing about exercise that I have no idea where to begin and I feel so overwhelmed! D: Thus, I am asking for help from YOU Iwaku! To give you an idea of things, I'm really looking for something light and suitable for a beginner to build strength overall, trim the chub-buds, and a bit of cardio for someone that is really out of shape (in the way that I can't run half a block without dying -- chest pain, the whole shebang). I don't need to lose weight -- I need to turn it into a bit of muscle. Something I can do at home (third floor apartment and downstairs neighbors that like to pound on the ceiling when I make too much noise >.> ) because I would die outside and I've got some anxiety issues and can't even walk into a gym.
