Fitness from home - mainly toning

So ive put on a bit of weight over the last year and gone up a dress size but im finally mostly happy with my body. I dont feel particularly healthy though, and my stomach definitely needs toning up

Im a single mum of two children i work almost full tine and my boyfriend is a nurse working shifts so if i get a night where i dont have the kids and he is off work i would go see him. I feel like my life is too busy to commit to a class like i have done previously. I feel like im better doing somethinh at home.

So my friend suggested a weighted hoop she uses and she says its been brilliant for toning although i dont know exactly how 'fit' you would get from it. I guess the other option is a dvd but i get kind of bored of them quickly and loose motivation.

Any other suggestions? My target area is definitely my stomach! Dont need to loose weight just tone

This is why I do 6.15am, I just can't commit to any other time of day and be consistent.

I've known 2 people to start hooping as beginners and they love it, They improved and it definitely helps.

You could also fit in some rounds of:
Planks
Sit-ups
V-ups
Mountain climbers
Leg lifts
Low ab drops

But also add things in like:
Squats
Lunges
Bum bridges

I keep saying I'll do 20 minutes an hour after dinner and never do - I'm the same as you I'm kinda happy with my body after a gain but the belly is an issue again!

It isn't easy at home.

I need to get a couple wrote up, I'll post them up when I do ...

Do you have anything? Aldi sometimes sell weights and KB's.

Why don't you use the above but try and mix them up so you are mixing up what you are using one after the other - IE don't do squats then lunges.

Erm maybe something like: 10 of each rep as many rounds as possible. I'd have to do it to see how many rounds I think but I'd say 2-4. Your endurance will increase which mans your reps and/or rounds would over time.

Mountain climbers
Lunges
Sit-ups
Bum bridges
v-ups
Lunges
Low ab drops
Squat again (because I love a squat lol)
Leg lifts

End on 1 plank each round for 30, 45 or 60 seconds (bum downnnnn)

You do go backwards. I was planking with 10/15kg on my back. I could do now but not for the 60/90 seconds. They work though even if you hate them x
