It is split into 3 twenty minute workouts, so you can pick based on how much time or energy you have. It's broken into upper body, lower body and core. I easily did upper and core yesterday (except those goddam plank exercises, which I'm sure were devised by Dick Cheney at Gitmo), but today I barely made it through core and couldn't get myself to do lower. The dvd suggests doing one a day or all three a few times a week so I guess I feel a little better about how much harder the second day was.
I just ordered a bikini so that gives me a ton of incentive to do core exercises.
It's nice to work out to that particular dvd as it was something I bought a year ago, and didn't use. I would lie in bed, sloth-like, watching all the obese people getting their butts kicked by the crazy L.A. trainers, feeling slightly superior to them for being just overweight, not obese. Looking back on that time, I am reminded that getting to a place where you are willing to go whole hog for a weight-loss goal takes a long time. The decisions may have seemed quick and random but it was really years post-partum in the making. Slowly I prepared myself, without knowing it, through baby steps (fewer sweets, some exercise, more greens), and excuses (some quite valid) until I was ready.
