Hello All! The company is gone. Very fun, but now I have alot of 'catch up' to do around here. Since I have my reputation to uphold (gulp!), I did 45 minutes on the treadmill & 45 minutes of toning with Denise before I opened up the computer.
Missy, of course, you should post!!! We are here 'for better or for worse'. To me, the exercise component is just an excuse to come here and hang out with good friends. Thank goodness it is something treatable. I so understand the PTSD part, my stomach turns over if I have to just drive by the exit to the center where I did chemo. I feel sick even typing about it!
Cyndi, about DVDs. If you are just starting out, Richard Simmons DVDs have great, fun music. DWS has very good music too. But if you are at a more advanced level of fitness, you will find them too easy. Denise Austin has good workouts. The FIRM has great workouts, both are set to music, but more as a background. Some DVDs that might be good and more music centered are Zumba and Jazzercise (I haven't done Jazzercise in years but just googled it, and they are still in business). Also, you could buy or burn some music you like, put on your Walk Off the Pounds DVD, turn down the sound and use your own music as you work out to their moves.
Mary Louise, I loved Dance Your Pants Off too!
I will have to have more planned exercise once I retire, because I get about 8,000 steps in every day at work just chasing after kids!
Claire, I'm excited to hear about the beaches and food of Hawaii.....where all us winter-weary people wish we were going with you!
