Howdy, Posse folks! Hope everyone is doing well out there and staying warm and dry. First order of business — winners! Turns out I’ll be able to rustle up enough stuff for two winners, and they are: Ellen M and Patti (from Texas). Patti, after my son did the draw, I just happened to look back through the comments, and I see that you are a Falcons’ fan. So I know you’re celebrating being in the upcoming Super Bowl with me and my DH (apologies to all you Packers’ fans out there). I’ll be in touch, ladies!
Anyhoo, going a little off-topic today, but it’s somewhat timely since we are still within the realm of New Year’s resolutions made (and hopefully not broken yet). I have been on a weight-loss campaign now since November and have been walking outside as my main exercise. And on occasion, around our humongous Kroger store, and sometimes even late at night around our entire downstairs to get some extra steps in. However, with the rainy days here of late, the freezing temps sure to come calling again with a vengeance, and the need to step up my exercise game, I’m on the hunt for good, but not- kill-you-challenging fitness DVDs.
I’ve tried several Leslie Sansone walking videos and am enjoying them but would also like to attempt some more dance-y stuff — although not sure my klutzy, two left feet could conquer Zumba, as it might easily knock me onto my keister. (I did do OK at Jazzercise many moons ago though.) Also perhaps even some very gentle beginners’ yoga, although I’m probably the least flexible person on the planet, ha! (Maybe our lovely Posse Patty can weigh in on this as she is an aficionado.) Bottom line, I am still overweight, and have a wonky back and leg/knee, so I do have to be careful and not do anything too strenuous or high impact.
What about you all — what videos do you think are winners? Or are there things at the gym that you enjoy doing? What is your Plan B when you can’t make it to the gym?
BTW, speaking of the gym, I think I might like the elliptical, but need to give it a whirl before I commit. And I feel like I need to lose some more weight before I would feel comfortable working out there.
