  These are great recommendations! I also have the Biggest Loser DVDs. I really like those (especially the first one), because I don’t feel quite as intimidated working out with the people on the show :-).

  I also am fortunate enough to have this cool indoor trampoline place semi-close to me that offers a trampoline workout class. It’s 60 minutes, half cardio, half strength training, and it is the BEST workout ever! Unfortunately, I can only make it once a week, but I absolutely love attending!

  If anybody has any good kickboxing DVDs that they recommend, I would love to hear about them!

Oh man, this looks like so much WORK!  XD

So not looking forward to it, but this will definitely help me get back to myself again. (Also, I saw your before and after pics – damn!)

Thanks so much for posting this – I just had to give up my gym membership and am thinking of getting back into doing workout DVD’s – I have 30-day-shred but I might get No More Trouble Zones.  I also really want to try Kettlebells…

@MandaMack:  Thanks for posting your fitness regimen!  I’m getting back into Jillian Michaels now and she is seriously kicking my butt, and it’s so inspirational to see your before/afters (you look amazing!!).  I subscribe to Self and this month’s issue raves about kettleballs, I’m wondering if I should try them too…

Also, I did NMTZ yesterday, with 15 mins on the elliptical to start, and I feel like my legs are dying.  I think doing the elliptical first made the workout less hard on my knees though (one thing Jillian doesn’t do is a lot of stretching).  I brought all the Xmas cookies from my home into work so there’s no temptation, and gonna do 30 mins elliptical + level 1 of the Shred today–though it kinda hurts just thinking about it!

I hope you don’t mind but I also wanted to add that if you can’t afford to purchase or even rent workout DVDs, I use workouts (when I workout at home) from Exercise TV.

If you have OnDemand via your cable provider, you should have this FOR FREE!  Click OnDemand, then to Free OnDemand, then just find Exercise TV and there should be many different types of workouts for you to choose from.

Good luck!

@MandaMack:  Yeah, I did 15 mins elliptical then all of NMTZ, but I was a bad girl this weekend Embarassed Too many Xmas cookies… 

@stephinPA: You’re right–the OnDemand stuff from Exercise TV is great.  They even have level 1 of the Shred, so all you Bees who don’t want to buy it on Amazon can do it at home for free!

I just want to say thanks for not only being inspirational to others, but for those of us that have only that 10-20 lbs to loose and aren’t technically “overweight” to begin with….
