Bubbles, are those DVDs? I don't think I've ever heard of them.

Day 2 yesterday Yesterday I really did not want to do the workouts I had planned so I compromised with half fun, half planned. I did Misty Tripoli's Bootylicious off Delicious Dance for the first time, which was fun. Then I did 5 rounds of a desk jockey WOD from March. My pull up bar is down right now so I can get in and out of the Halloween closet so for the hanging knee raises I just held myself up on TheRack like it was a dip station and did them that way. It hit the abs the same but lacked the hang benefit. Then I did another virgin, WWE Stephanie McMahon Fit Series -Lower Body+Stretch. I know I hadn't done the lower body section, but since I had done the upper body it's possible I did the stretch too. I couldn't find the index card for it in my quick search so I can't say for sure right now. The workout was 2 rounds of the following exercises: goblet squats, reverse lunges, deadlifts, quadruped straight leg raises (with your chest on your thigh, which was kind of weird) and donkey kick circles. First round was 8 reps, second was 12. Not a bad workout but my biggest gripe is that she leads you through a couple minutes of warmup and THEN demos the exercises. Drove me crazy to have to just stop when she should have demoed before the warmup!

I was wondering the same!

Cate, I like Gilad as an instructor too, I don't know why I didn't try his workouts before! he is great!

Bubbles, thanks so much for the feedback on TLSM workout! I haven't try Amy step workouts (I feel intimidated by them), but I agree that Christy's cues amazingly well. Would you say it is harder or easier than Totally Cool Step 2? I haven't get past of the 15 min. mark on that one yet, and still makes some mistakes withing those 15 minutes I love her Fit to Dance workout, easy to catch choreography on that one (for me).

Vannie the Discount Workouts with GymBox are DVD-Rs. If you've seen a GymBox workout on youtube, then you know how these are set up. I don't think the DVD-Rs are the same exact workouts but then I haven't done all the ones on youtube.

Sugar I think TLSM is more difficult that Totally Cool Step 2 . I get tripped up on TLSM warm up every time, but then it's pretty good after that.

Day 11 (today) - Gym Box Discount Workouts Beginning Step Workout Volume 2 Workout 1 with Jenny. Virgin workout. I liked this. It was basic, but sweaty. 30 minutes, in and out

I posted my village pics at Total Fitness where they can be seen by anyone.

I really really want to get back to a good routine. I feel like a helium balloon that lost its tether! So I decided I want to just go ahead this week and finish all the decorating except for my cemetery in the yard since hubby needs to mow still. That part won't take long to do the first week of October. If I can get everything up maybe my brain will shut up about the excitement and just enjoy it all so I can focus on other things!

13. P30: Low Impact Hiit. Good stuff.
14. rest day… Boss Bands Total Body was on the schedule but couldn’t force myself out of bed. I may add this to the end of my rotation. But… if I’m honest, I’m kind of tired of doing the new Boss bands/loops workouts. One more week. Ha. I go into the office on Mondays & Tuesdays so I should just go ahead and make these rest days. So busy! Ugh
15. FIT|SPLIT: Low Impact Cardio | Metabolic Conditioning (dust bunny). Long time since I last did this workout. Lots of things I had forgotten, nice little sweat situation.

bubbles - please recommend some Gilad weight workouts - high reps & splits but not too dated looking. Can’t wait to try TLSM.

ASAS - I’m adding the Gilad workouts that you did to my list as well.

Vannie - OMG! That is so awesome! Thanks for sharing! Love it!

T2B, thanks for looking! Clearly you can see I DON'T have a problem at all! This time of year hubby comes home and just shakes his head. I asked him last night if he felt like what's behind door #3 when he comes home, wondering what new additions will be up! I may post some more pics as I go. Yesterday I made a yarn spiderweb on the front door and added spiders I crocheted. So much fun!

If you like shorter workouts you can string together, I really like his Quick Fit System but it's a bit dated as far as outfits. I also like his 15 Targeted Express Workouts. I haven't done all the workouts, but I have previewed. I have done his Ultimate Sculpt Series although it's been awhile since I've completed them - Cuts & Curves, Core & More, and Power & Grace. I may reacquire them at some point. For sentimental reasons, I like his Elite Forces workout, but that's cardio.

Day 12 - Gym Box Discount Workouts Advanced Strength Workout Volume 1 Workout 2 with Jenny. This was an hour long, high rep workout. It's basically her Beginning workout, but with more reps. Sweaty betty afterwards!
