Ok. I managed to change my youtube name. So, here are the main videos I have put in my play lists. I’ll link the warm-up playlist and cool down playlist in a minute. If you do some of these let me know what you thought! We can encourage each other.
I’ve been doing Zumba, Aerobics, and Jazzercise this week via Youtube. postsfromthemrs is doing some of this with me. It is nice to have someone to cheer you on — but they also can’t see how silly you might look. Anyways, I’ve made a large playlist, but its attached to my personal e-mail and real name which I do not want to put on Tumblr. I thought it might be nice to share some videos I like occasionally. This was my favorite from today. If you’d rather not see these on your dash, block the tag youtube aerobics. Enjoy!

South Beach Diet
So tomorrow I am attempting to start the South Beach Diet for real. I tried once before but then a few days later my flood hit and any plans I had for dieting hit the fan when I had to move out of my house for almost 2 months.
Phase 1 is very restrictive and I know that the hardest part for me will be my sweet tooth. The sweets allowed in Phase 1 are all sugar free items. I can’t eat foods with artificial sweeteners because they trigger my migraines.
Phase 1 only lasts two weeks, and I knew I would do better with it if I did it while I am in Ohio. I don’t have regular access to a car here, so temptations of running out to get fast food are curbed. Also, my mom is gently encouraging and I think that will help.
The list for Phase 2 will be much easier for me, so I am looking forward to that.
I’ll be blocking some tags for a few weeks just to make it a little easier on myself.
I made these this week. Delicious. It is worth chopping the garlic fresh IMHO. Picture used with permission.
