    Been exercising all indoors now. It didn't help that my computer broke down and that means I couldn't get to youtube to select my dance songs. I ended up buying a couple of dance video to relieve the monotony of having just the Walk, Walk, Walk.

    I like an old video by Billy Blanks, and it's my fave lately. Aerobics.
    Dance with me Groove and Burn. Simple tutorial of dance steps (choice of disco, African, and Latino),
    plus simple toning.

    Beginners can easily get into it.





    I got a Paula Abdul too - but it's a bit more complicated to follow, unlike Billy Blanks who teaches the steps slowly.

    Might add a variety of selections, like Zumba (after all, exercises is part of my lifestyle now).
    Whatever helps motivate and making it fun, will be a good investment.



    I'm also looking into the Step Exercises. Lol. I saw it being done in a segment of Everybody Loves Raymond. It looks like a lot of fun! It's similar to this:

    UPDATE!

    I got the STEP platform equipment. I recommend this one - the original, which is reasonably priced and very stable.

    I got this dvd to go with it. I love it! It teaches the basic. Lol. The warm-up alone (which is simple) is enough to start a nice sweat. A lot of simple steps to give you enough cardio! The locale ( beach) is quite uplifting what with winter here!
    Doing it with a big screen 60 inch tv makes me feel like I'm right there, part of the group! :)
