Review: Crunch Fat Burning Dance Party (DVD)

I did this DVD this morning! It's 45 minutes long, and it's kind of old... I've had it in my collection since my ED days (when I was about 20, so 6+ years now). I remember this being a much harder workout! It amazed me how well I did with this. I hardly broke a sweat, which means that this is something that I will do when wanting to work out, but when I don't want a huge challenge, so it will probably be weekly or less. It was really fun, though, and a great way to switch things up! Overall, I would say that this is a great workout DVD for beginners! If you are looking for a fun cardio workout that needs NO equipment, this is a great choice. Good music, motivating instructor, and the best part to me: A variety of shapes and sizes of exercisers are featured. Oh, and one man! Love the crowd.
Switching up my exercise routine = my biggest healthy goal right now.

The best part about doing this video? I'm reminded of how far I've come since my eating disorder days. I remember doing this video and not even enjoying it, just trying to burn calories! And I also remember that when I did this as an anorexic/EDNOS-er, I was out of breath and felt terrible during and afterwards. I may not be as thin or as young as I was back then, BUT I am so much healthier and more in shape than I was.

Why did it take me so long to finally figure that one out? Without fueling my body properly, I couldn't do all of the amazing workouts that I do. I hope that all of you have fantastic weekends! Thanks for stopping by.

Leah-I love Jennifer Galardi! I have one of her 10 minute solutions DVDs that has 4 10 minute workouts on it. I also do her free workout on I am not sure what kind of internet access you have or if you have a laptop that you can move around, but I set up a "workout station" with my laptop and pull up I love Cindy Whitmarsh, Kendall Hogan and Jennifer Galardi. They are my favorite trainers.

Oh yeah, I also noticed that Netflix instant streaming through my Wii has some workout dvds you can pull up through the instant viewing.
