I have been on an exercise kick lately. Back in March I purchased a pilates dvd (this is the one I am using: http://www.ellenbarrett.com/pyl.htm but I bought mine on ebay for less).. I was not sure about them, but decided to give it a try.. well 2 months later all I can say is WOW! These things are great! I can really feel the improvement on my muscle tone in only a short time. I totally recommend them to anyone wanting to tone up muscles.
I also purchased a couple of Leslie Sansones walking dvd’s (again I got these on ebay). I have the one, two and three mile walks. I love these things. Really besides getting a bit more fit one of the things I have really enjoyed about this is that my daughters Emily and Leanne have also joined me. So now almost every day we enjoy our little mom/daughters exercise time. We walk 2 or 3 miles and then do 30 minutes of pilates. So far having some exercise buddies has really helped the boredom aspect that seems to happen with these types of things and given me added motivation!
