Resolution #137

Oprah isn't the only one who has fallen off the weight-loss bandwagon. Like millions of Americans, I've made my resolution to shed those extra pounds through a combination of diet and exercise. And just to prove I was serious, I purchased something extraordinary, only found in the good U S of A, which was to guarantee I'd have fun, keep the motivation, and trim my waistline all at the same time.



Well, it seemed like a good idea when I was in the throes of making my New Year's resolutions.

Ok, so this isn't any more shameful than the powerplate knockoff I bought off La Redoute last year... but it is funnier !

Diane... I got 2 words for you:
Wii Fit... HOLY CRAP is that hard and at the same time so worth it! The YOGA alone - TOTALLY.WORTH.IT.

And like your DVD, its fun and you break into a sweat BIG TIME.

We also bought Active Life Outdoor Challenge game and after jumping rope for 15 min, we were drench (Oh yeah I made EVERYONE jump rope!)

It always *seems* like a good idea! I'll have these moments when I realize that my ideas were good "in theory." But then I pick up that exercise DVD and notice the dust it has collected, and have to shake my head. Hope you are shaking your hips to this fun-looking DVD soon!

The main key to weight control is exercise as much as you can.

If you decide not to dance, you can just look at Max's picture. (swoon)

I can think of worse ways to exercise, like treadmills.

I remember how some of the athletes who competed on that show said it's one of the toughest workouts they've ever experienced. and we're talking ex-football players.

hey, you like dancing anyway and it beats jogging or going to the gym.

I've been away from your blog for a few weeks and had the chance this morning to catch up a bit. You've been through a great deal recently - you don't need me to remind you of that - I say it more as an acknowledgment and as a blessing. I think you will find Spain to be a good place for the two of you - I certainly hope that proves to be the case and wish you well.
