I do a Zumba Rush full class (1 hour) and Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred (20 minutes). The goal is daily, but some weeks I fall short, smh!

Playlist is rather long… Lots of hip-hop/dance/techno.

@sommertime:  Dance fitness three days a week (Zumba twice and Werq once) and cardio/weights two days a week–total of 5 days a week.  People who are really dedicated to weights apparently shed weight off!

If your gym offers classes, start going! Get to know the instructor, that way if you don’t show up he/she will notice! I do Crossfit 2x/week, spinning once a week, yoga once a week, and play volleyball twice a week. I only have to be accountable to myself one more time a week for a long, slow run (which, really, my dog enjoys more than I do so I have to do it for her!). The classes I go to are smaller and I know the instructors pretty well, so if I don’t go, I feel guilty! Works like a charm 🙂

I bought Slim in 6 and I’m about 2 weeks in.  It’s developed by the same company that makes Insanity and P90X.  It’s pretty much kicking my ass.  I used to run 2 miles 4-5 days per week – Slim in 6 has made me realize that, evidently, I haven’t worked my hamstrings, butt, or arms in about 5 years because after the first round with the first DVD, I could barely sit without wincing.  You’re supposed to do each DVD’s routine 6 days per week, for about 2 weeks, but you can shorten/extend their use based on your level.

I’m on the second DVD now and it’s really giving me a run for my money.  Give it a shot if you’re sick of the gym and into fitness DVDs 🙂

@sommertime:  The first DVD is 30 minutes long, the second one is about an hour, and the third one is supposed to be about an hour as well.  I like the idea of them because they’re still difficult, so you feel like you’re getting a workout, but you don’t have to worry about bulking up, like you might with P90X or Insanity.

@sommertime:  Zumba Rush is a Xbox Kinect game. Yeah, I don’t do the gym/class thing either.

I do 1 x 1.5 hour advanced pole dancing class and 2 – 3 x 1.5 hour Bikram yoga classes per week.

If i might fit in a run or a power walk once a fortnight.

@sommertime:  I literally never had a gym membership before 4 months ago. ha! I wasn’t officially overweight (just the heavier end of the normal BMI range), but I was soooo flabby and had no strength whatsoever, and I was over it. So one day I joined a gym, and I’m too cheap not to go at least 5 days a week to get my money’s worth. haha.  I started following Jamie Eason’s Live Fit program and adapted it to what I like to do. I like to lift weights, but everyone needs to find their thing.  Definitely do not be afraid to lift heavy weights at the gym if you’re interested in it though! Skinny fat isn’t a good look on anyone, and weights help preserve lean muscle. Also, don’t fall for the “weights will make you bulky” crap. It takes TONS of hard work for women to put on muscle (including eating at a calorie surplus). It doesn’t happen by accident or overnight. You will not look like a bodybuilder unless you try really, really hard. (Also, if you were interested in P90x or Insanity, they also won’t make you bulky. Those aren’t even heavy lifting programs. You can google women’s after pictures, and they are definitely not bulky.) With lifting weights, I haven’t really lost much weight (only 4ish pounds in 4 months), but I’ve lost over 15 inches and went down 2 pant sizes, so if you decide to do a lifting program, make sure you take before pictures and measurements because those will be a much better indication of your progress than the scale.
