how not to lose your mind

while working out to videos:

  • a variety is helpful, for sanity, and for not repeating the same uses of particular muscles day in and day out. I can only do so many knee lifts after awhile.
  • find a couple of tapes that are so easy, you can listen to other things and still follow them. I find that the walk DVDs I have are simple enough that I can work out to Diane Rehm, Car Talk, and other NPR favorites.
  • Check customer reviews on collagevideo.com and amazon.com. They are very helpful. Also, collagevideo has little previews you can click on and play.
  • Most DVDs are too short for serious weight loss, but if you combine them, you can put together some nice long workouts.
  • The cats will not display any interest at all in your behavior, and will probably go to sleep on the couch.

Which walk videos are you listening to? It's so stinking hot and humid that walking outside is not an option right now with heat indexes over 100. Gotta do something!
