can anyone suggest a good cardio/abs workout?

i am currently aiming for a skinnier body and also for a six pack at the same time. i am about to begin doing this routine:
-situps
-crunches
-leg lifts
-jogging for about 30 to 40 min 2 or 3 times each week

please let me know if there are any problems with what im doing or if theres something better (but i have no equipment like swiss balls or anything like that so no exercises that require them)

Okay…I only started two Mondays ago and All I do is walk one hour every morning. I wear a calorie counter monitor to loose weight by the numbers. I have already lost one pant size and 10 pounds. I am a woman and have three kids and this is the method I use when I gain weight.. I am now at a size two and everyone is always amazed that I have had three kids. This is what I do below when I throw on a few extra pounds. It always works..No diet pills, no energy drinks..just me walking and getting the water I need. Of course I watch what I eat and the Lean Cuisine meals are great for that since the calories per box are 180 to 380 per box. Just make sure you eat healthy every three to four hours so your body will perform at its max.

Here it is:

Helpful Tips for weight loss:

1)A good way to loose weight is to use a calorie counter watch

Keep to a 1,200 food intake

Add 1,200 plus 3,500 (equals one pound of fat) …and that is the total amount of calories you need to burn each day. Its actually really easy once you start watching the numbers and it doesn’t seem like work or exercise. Its just a matter of changing the way you think about loosing weight.

I use this method when i gain some pounds. The first time I did this I went from 168 to 127

2) Most people do not get enough water in their system. Water is your body’s principal chemical component, comprising, on average, 60 percent of your weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.

Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don’t have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. To determine if you are getting enough water use this simple formula.. Take your weight, for example 150 pounds and divide by 2. Take your answer which is 75 lbs and change it to ounces, in this case 75 ounces. That is how many ounces of water you need a day. Your body performs mostly on water. If you make sure you get enough water everyday your body will perform at top notch and your body will no longer have the cravings of junk food. You will have a better performing body system to help you work out and feel better thru out your day.

Well I’m aiming for the same goal abs and getting rid of this tummy fat. The best thing to do is continue this routine, but also do this…
Jog for 30 minutes once every other day. For example Monday: jog and Tuesday: do aerobics such as stair climbing. Continue doing this it will help 100%. Oh yeah eat healthy such as lots of fiber to increase metabolism to burn more fat and calories. Also this is one excercise you could try with abs. Lift legs to a 90 degree angle and then extend to almost fully extention. You will feel it in your lower and mid abs. Next as your legs are almost fully extended lift your upper body with your abs to a 45 degree angle. Then come back down to the starting position slowly, not fast. Do 25 reps a day. My suggestion is do 4 abs exercises a day each 25 to altogether add up to 100. Good luck.
