Long ago and far away I found myself stuck living in a cold and snowy place and I suddenly found myself eating way too much comfort food. Up until then, I lived in Sunny Southern California and didn't have 12 foot drifts of snow to deal with. I was also working and going to school and had limited food options. I gained weight. I was not happy about it.
Since I worked for a school, I had summers off and my first summer off I decided to remedy this weight gain thing. So I bought a belly dancing Video Tape. Because back then everyone still used VHS tapes. It was the Belly Dance Fitness for Beginners Slim Down.
I LOVED it. It was the perfect workout. Challenging but not painful. And it was actually something I could do in a very small space because I had no space.
But then years happened and moves happened and this wonderful workout was lost and I couldn't find it again and then when I did find it - it was still VHS and I had a DVD player. Sadness happened. The few belly dancing dvds they had didn't look great and the one I bought was "meh."
Then today. I was looking on Amazon for a cardio workout to add to my daily joggles (walk /jog) and found a nice dance looking once, that had several types of cardio - dance, walk, barre, pilates... and added it to the cart. I then decided to try another belly dance dvd and SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP THEY HAD MY OLD VHS WORKOUT... ON DVD! And it was an add-on item for $4!
I added that so fast my head spun. They actually had a second DVD, same people, different parts targeted, so I bought that one as well as it was only $9. I loved these ladies and the workout was awesome.
I can't quite believe that I am so nerding out on this and blogging about my adventures in cardio DVD hunting. But I am - because when you find a decent work out - you stick to it like grim death.
They arrive Tuesday. This will be me waiting...
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
