Operation Hot Chick - Week 3


I'm a failure.

No really.

But I blame my Wii.

It's still broken.

Yeah, the Wii still doesn't work. I'm not real happy about that. I really liked the My Fitness Coach game. As a matter of fact, I didn't realize just how much I liked it until I started trying to find a replacement. I tried the Fitness Magazine build your own video thing.. but it just wasn't doing it for me. I need something that gets my heart rate going, and that one just made my muscles hurt, along with all the other videos on their site. After that, I figured I would have to cave and just get myself a workout DVD. I figured, 'Hey, we have an Amazon UnBox account set up.. and I have this wonderful $5 giftcard awarded to me from the fine people administering the ABNA contest.. I might as well put it to good use, right?' Right.

Sadly, Amazon UnBox (a program that sells digital copies for renting or purchasing and downloading) didn't quite have what I was looking for.. no matter. I found what I needed in their regular store. But I waited.. I figured, 'Hey, I can always get something at the store and then I don't have to wait for it to ship!'

Target has a LAME selection of workout DVDs. Just saying.


That's okay, I can still go back to Scamazon.. I mean Amazon.

I did manage to find this little gem though..

Ballywood Booty, here I come!

I figured, why not? It would give me something to do while my Kung Fu Kickboxing and Kickboxing for Dummies DVDs are shipping.. and it will be fun for J to watch me do! It's a win win really.

Boo, "failure" is a bad word to use. Purge it from your fitness vocabulary.

You've got 5 kids and still have the desire to work it out. That's success in my book.

Maybe scope out some workout vids on Youtube? I bet you could even find some Richard Simmons. ;)

Not a failure. Just a little set back. You can do it! I know you can!

Can't wait to watch bollywood workout!

Just keep on keepin' on, and it will come off.

Bollywood Booty.
I don't even know what I think about that.

I feel like a big failure myself right now. House guests for the last several days. We've been eating (and drinking) nonstop. I'm quite sure I've gained every little ounce I had lost and probably more. Starting over tomorrow when they leave .....

Bollywood Booty, hehhehhe. Let me know how that turns out.

I had a great workout vid called Disco Inferno once. It was on VHS though but the music rocked.

Meh, I've fallen off of the wagon so many times that I have a permanent dent in my ass. You'll get there, don't sweat it (actually, DO sweat it but don't worry about it). Good luck. And Bollywood Booties? Ha!

The Bollywood workout video is totally your ticket. You'll be hot and have some sweet moves.

If you can get away, try just taking a walk. Half my town walks for health. If you manage not to stop and chat with anyone and really pound around the block you can burn some serious calories.

I actually used walking as my main form of exercise for YEARS. That's part of why I'm not doing so great now. Sadly, our lives are so out-of-control busy, I rarely have time to sneak out for a stroll.. I miss walking.

When the weather warms up, we'll hopefully be taking family walks again.

Thanks everyone, for your support! I did try out the Bollywood Booty DVD last night, and I LOVED it. It was lots of fun. :)

(I think J enjoyed it too. ;))
