    Does anyone have any good suggestions on at-home working out?
    I used to do 20 push-ups, and 20 sit-ups each day, and in those days I was in good shape.
    Now, I'm too fat for that. I do one push up, and I feel like I need a nap. And a sit-up is an even bigger joke.
    What would be a good way to shed a few pounds?

    I am not assuming anything but, if you are drinking any alcohol, you will hype your BMR (basal metabolic rate) if you stop. Even one or two drinks per day will slow down your liver enzymes that help your body metabolize everything. I drink a couple of glasses of wine a day and it's proven to be helpful with decreasing stress and lowering blood pressure but... if I want to lose a quick 10 lbs, I discontinue the wine habit and ride stationary bike for up to 1 hour per day after work; usually four days on and one day off. I will watch music videos on Youtube or something to kill the boredom. You will find that you will drop a few really quick if you mind what you eat during the day. And... the small benefit you get from a glass of wine is easily exceeded by the cardio workout you get.

    Maybe some free weights?
