9 Workout DVDs

The 9 workout DVDs that I ordered from collage video finally arrived. I tried working out first using the Belly Dance and I was really sweating like a pig in 45 minutes. I didn't even feel that I was workout out because I was having so much fun dancing and learning Belly Dancing.

Then I went out and run for 15 minutes.... Words, looks and gestures inspired me more to workout really hard... I really wanted to lose more weight but I really cannot control my love for eating. But I am happy that I was able to maintain my weight since I lost about 20 lbs.

The difference between me and this one person is that, I eat but I workout because I am not lazy.... !!!

Run For Weight Loss

I run for 15 mins after my 30 mins. weight step aero workout. Then I did my 10 mins abs workout. I did a lot of stretching because I noticed that my knees is getting better since I have been doing longer stretching every after workout.

It's very hard to lose more weight after losing about 20 lbs. I know I can only do it if I will eat less. But it's hard because my work require a lot of physical activities.

Well I hope the weather will always be this way, so I can start increasing the lenght of my run.
