I'm so excited to share this with all of you! As you all know I have been having trouble the last few weeks getting exercise back into my routine. I think I may have found the solution.
Netflix! My sister bought my husband a 6 month subscription for his birthday this past year. So my family and I have really been enjoying watching tons of movies. It is really great for us because we don't have cable. The best part is that you can order a free dvd from Netflix that allows you to watch all of their "Watch Instantly" selection right on your TV. It is so easy to use and convenient. Anyway, back to the exercise thing. I just realized that Netflix offers exercise DVD's. They actually have a pretty nice selection and many of them can be watched instantly.
This means that I can choose any of these videos and do them from my computer or my tv. I am so excited. I tried it out for the first time today. My girls were watching a Thomas The Train movie on the tv so I decided to do the exercise dvd on the laptop. It was wonderful!
The dvd I used was Dance Off the Inches: Tummy Tone Party Zone. It was great! I am so not coordinated but I was still able to do most of the steps to the dance. I loved it. It was really fun to dance while exercising. Then at the end of the dvd their was a special abs on the mat section. I really felt that I got a great workout from the dvd. I will definitely do it again. The best part was that when I was done I thought I had done the video for about 15 minutes but when I checked it was actually 38 minutes. Pretty cool!
If anyone is interested in trying out different exercise dvds Netflix just may be the way to go. I think it costs about $8.00 a month and you receive unlimited dvd's (one at a time) through the mail plus anything they have listed as watch instantly. It is such a great buy and I can't wait to try out the other videos.
