The Firm Workout

About 4 years ago I bought this set of DVDs and step box along with some light hand weights.  Even though I quit using the set I never got rid of them.  Since they include both weights and cardio I decided to pull it out the other day and try them again in conjunction with my Walk At Home DVDs.

I'll tell you what they killed me today!!  My son was up a little early and was watching me workout and I had to ask him to go upstairs, because honestly I just wanted to cry and I didn't want him to see me.  When I tried these before I was about 40 pounds lighter.   Even then I remember some of the moves being difficult.

I'm going to do The Firm two mornings a week and my walking DVDs the other days.  


  1. You know - I used these tapes (not DVD's!) back when I was losing all my weight, and they were hard and a good workout. Good for you, and I'd send you mine but I finally got rid of it. I laugh now when I think of the ladies in their funny leotards! Thanks for sharing - Diane (www.fittothefinish.com)

  2. Thanks for the comments, Diane! I'm touched you're visiting my blog. :)

    They are hard, but my husband encouraged me that they will be easier some day! I'm not quite sure I believe him yet. :)

  3. I almost got one of those video's the other day. I chickened out though. I will keep walking for now. I'm a wimp when it comes to pain.

    You can do it though Leah...I know you can. We both have done this before but this time it's going to be different!!

    It will get easier the more you do it. I've got my 2 mile walk down to 35 min. now. Coming home is a lot easier cause it's downhill. I just speed walk. Sometimes I want to run but not comfortable with that yet.

    I love ya!!! Sweaty and all. Power on sister!!
