Shapely Girl Fitness Wrap Up and Give away


For the past month I have had the pleasure of participating in the Shapely Girl Fitness Review/Challenge. At first I was dreading this review. I mean who likes to exercise. However, this review has showed me how much I need to exercise and that I actually enjoy exercise when I do it.

The DVD I chose to review was Debra Mazda's Let's Get Moving 2, Cardio Toning with weights. I didn't think I could get much toning with only using 5lb weights. I was pleasantly proven wrong. I love that Debra has a circle time on her video. In her circle time she talks with women of all different shapes and sizes about being healthy. I didn't watch the circle time part of the video but I did find it refreshing to watch once a week. It was a great reminder to fitness and healthy living one day and one step at at time.

Another thing about the DVD I love was the premixes. Debra gives you a variety of workouts with different links to choose from. I love this fact because some days I just seem to have more time than others. I usually did one longer work out a week mixed with two shorter ones. I found this worked great with my schedule and also kept the workout from becoming monotonous.

I also think through this DVD I became more confident in myself. I felt comfortable working out with the ladies on the DVD. We were all relatively the same size where as when I work out at the gym I often feel intimidated by the smaller, healthier looking ladies. I think that because I felt more confident I was able to begin dealing with issues involving over eating. I still have a long way to go but because I feel more secure in myself I am beginning to make progress in this area.

I did make some small strides in my fitness level this month (well at least till I hurt my hand. Warning: picture is not for those with weak stomachs or who are easily grossed out! ). I was reminded what a great stress reliever and energizer exercising is! Here's a pic  of me on the last day of the workout

Injuring my hand and being unable to work out for the last week and a half has definitely but a dent in things but as soon as I am able I will be doing cardio and toning again with Debra and the gang! Now, I'd like to give you a chance to get your own copy of Debra's Let's Get Moving 2, Cardio and Toning. Just enter the giveaway below. The drawing will be held on November 11/11/12

Hi Carol, I have so enjoyed following your posts for the ShapelyGirl Fitness crew. I was saddened by your injury and sympathized with you too because I think we are the two "fallers" in the group. I will continue to pray for your healing and hope to remain in contact with you. Blessings!

Pamela, you & Carol are not the only 2 "fallers"--I lost my balance and fell a few nights ago. Ironically, I was trying to kick something out of the way so I wouldn't trip over it. LOL!

Carol, I admire the way you keep going. I have a long way to go, but have felt very encouraged by Debra, you, & all of the others. God bless!!!
