I have been on a major fitness kick lately.

I’m not sure what’s wrong with me.

It could be the beautiful weather, the longer days, or the fact that I spent an entire evening crying and snotting all over myself a couple of months ago when I discovered I’d gone up an entire clothing size since last summer, but whatever it is, I’m (finally) motivated to get myself back in shape.

The only problem is, my husband has been doing more traveling than usual lately, and since we don’t have any family or friends I can call to watch our 3 y/o so I can go to the gym when he’s away, I’ve been trying to come up with fun ways I can get a workout in at home when my daughter is in bed at night.

(Because if it isn’t fun, I’m not going to do it, you know?)

I did some Jillian Michaels workouts, and I really tried to get the body of a Victoria’s Secret Model, but I found I got bored really easily, and I just couldn’t find a way to keep myself engaged.

And then I remembered how much I used to love cardio workouts when I was in my 20s, so I spent a ridiculous amount of time on YouTube watching workouts by Denise Austin.

Have you heard of her?

She has a bunch of fantastic cardio workouts can buy on DVD to help you lose weight and tone your body from the comfort of your own home (my faves are her Fit in a Flash and Hit The Spot : 10 five minute target toners DVDs), and the BeFit Channel on YouTube offers a lot of her workouts for free!
