1. I'd had several friends recommend Walk Away the Pounds videos, so I finally caved, on the grounds that if I have something I can do easily in my own living that involves walking, for bob's sake, I've no excuse not to exercise. I got the One Mile Easy Walk/Two Mile Brisk Walk combo off of Amazon for cheap, and I really like it; I think I may be getting one of the three milers soon. The one mile is easy, and only 15 minutes, so good if you've convinced yourself that you don't want to do anything that day but you need to do something, and the two mile is a half an hour of real exercise. Highs have been in the 30s lately (50!! tomorrow. :) ) so exercise that can be done in my living room is double-plus good. Recommended.
2. However, after doing the videos a couple of times, the music gets old and the patter even older. So I mute the video and play my own music. To that end, let me recommend something I found this weekend: Podrunner, one hour long mixes specifically designed for running (but they work fine for walking, too.) Great music with a good beat. Yay. :)
