Workouts on Demand: A bit of an experiment.

I've been a bit grouchy lately, whining about how I've gotten pudgy, but not gained any weight. I started a desk job in mid-June, and I ended my gym membership in May because I was moving. I had been working out pretty faithfully before, and now that I haven't been working out at all I've started losing muscle. 

I have decided that instead of being whiny and sour about it, I'm going to do something about it. Since I'm only going to be here for about a month more, and there aren't any gyms near here that allow a month to month membership, I'm going to do an online video program. I really like yoga and Pilates, and I want to improve my flexibility. Plus, I don't have much in the way of fitness equipment and don't want to have to buy a bunch of bulky equipment that I would have to try to move into my apartment in the fall. 

I did the tiniest bit of online research, and I decided to try Workouts on Demand. They seem to offer a lot of what I want, and they are running a special right now (roughly $6 for a month.) I plan to do at least one workout a day 6 days a week, because I have a ballet class on Monday.

I signed up today, am going to start today, and will post my thoughts, reflections, and results at the end of the month. 

I am going to put more effort into making myself happy, instead of whining.
