My fiance has P90X. I don’t do all of the workouts with him, but I still like it. I think it’s definitely something you could do with your fiance. 

By The Way, we just did the yoga DVD today and it kicked my butt (again).

I like Jillian Michaels DVDs.  It’s circuit training so every few minutes you are doing something different.

I love the Core Fusion DVDs. Very different and tough!

I like Jillian Micheals No More Trouble Zones.  I want to eventually do Insanity but it’s way too intense for me right now.

I can definitely recommend the 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels.  I am a little “softer” than you, and i’ve noticed that below my many layers of softness Jillian has given me rock hard muscle!! Esp. in my arms and quads.  My fiance commented on it the other day when he was resting on my leg and i straightened it, flexing my quad – he was all “where did my comfy pillow go??”

So – the 30 day shred, done for the whole 30 days plus (with occasional breaks of course) should get you where you want to be!  And its fun to hate Jillian while you do it.

My advice with the at home thing is to have a variety available, that is what has worked best for me.  A variety of intensities, instructors, length of the workout, etc.  That way you never have an excuse to not workout and you don’t get bored doing the same DVD every day. 

If you have Netflix they have a bunch of workout DVDs and even have some that are “on demand” so you can do them without actually getting the DVD.

@astrangeharris: I didn’t either until recently!  It’s been a great way to mix things up every once and a while without buy a million more DVDs!

Also checkout the on demand section of your cable (if you get cable).  There are always some great ones on there. 

Also if you have a cable DVR, usually early morning there are yoga, zumba, etc shows and you can record them and do them later!

Without a doubt try Turbo Jam or the newer and more intense version, Turbo Fire. They are amazing! I am not a huge fan of working out and literally own over 60 workout dvds…im a sucker for infomercials lol. I have P90X and its a great workout, but it’s not fun at all. That’s why I recommended turbo fire, because it is still a really great workout and I noticed huge results in the first week of doing it and like you I don’t have a lot of weight to lose, it’s more toning, but the best part of it is that it’s actually fun! They use newer music and the moves go to the beat so it feels more like dancing, even though it’s definitely a killer workout (think cardio kickboxing). Turbo Jam is the same idea it’s just not as intense but I think it’s about half the price of Turbo Fire if you don’t want to spend that much. Both can be bought on beachbody.com. I think I’ve ordered from them at least 5 times and never had any problems, and it always comes super fast.

I’ve convinced a bunch of my friends to try the videos, and even had a turbo workout thing at my house with them once lol and they loved it and bought it themselves so that’s why I recommend it to other people too 🙂

the new “rage” is these boot camps that are popping up all over.  kinda like crossfit (which is also great).  see if there are any boot camps in your local area.  they will get you toned up and hard in a new york minute.  i lost 16″ in my first two months.
