Don't laugh, but this is who I work out with. No it's not Billy Blanks, Bollywood Bodies, All Star Work Outs, Brazilian Butt Lift, Insanity, or some fancy high gear overrated die hard workout, but it's good ole Gilad from Hawaii! No, he doesn't have all the glist and glamour but the brother gets the job done. Since I'm still recovering from the kidney biopsy, he's the best for me during this season. Small simple moves have tone and slim me down tremendously! Its amazing how I don't have to go at a high extreme heart busting movement to get the heart rate up. With Gilad, all you have to do is focus on the muscle and make it burn! Heart rate will go up and you will slim down with basic moves. Confession, when I first started the workouts, I couldn't keep up at all, but as I did it everyday I was able to go a little further. Even now as I type, I still may not be able to keep up, but I keep going.

Gilad's workout time is a total of 30 minutes too. Such a plus for me. I remember when I used to workout with Billy Blanks or other hot workout gurus it would be 45 minutes to a whole whopping hour or even more! I don't have time for all of that now. A good 20-30 minute workout is good enough. It's what you put in your mouth that really counts!

Find a workout that fits your lifestyle and make sure you have a variety too! I do like Bollywood Bodies and others, but Gilad gives me those real results. If you are a gym rat, continue to have fun with it. Whatever you do, just keep your body moving. Try something different like during a commercial break, do stomach crunches, squats or a simple stretch. You will feel good and want to do more.

I will be weighing in Monday! Remember the "Target Goal Size 12" clothes I was trying to get into? They are too big! I did put them on and was going to take pics but they were to big and falling off me! Wooooo Whoooo!!!! I was so happy! I thought I would never see this day! I feel so free and light. So just stay tuned......there's more.

I'm still amazed at your new body. I exercise with Bob of Biggest loser CD. It works but I'm not very committed. Now you're back to motivate me, all the best dear.

@Lady A

I am sure all the women are screaming, OMG! You can inspire so many women, I told you

I don't work out like that but I'll do take long walks in the mornings and eat very healthy, my hubby and I are planning on running in the morning as a couple when we start living together next year.

@YNC, awwww, you got me laughing over here smiling hard! You were right, lol! Yeah, I love walking but I can't really do that yet due to weather and my immune system, but I'm sure you know they say walking is the best workout! Running? Girl, you go ahead! You two will have fun with it.
