Pump it Up

today i was pouring over my library of exercise dvd's and I just could not pic one! I think i'm bored with them, I've used them all so much, they've become so monotonous & are no longer challenging. So I was wondering if at the end of everyone's comment they could list they're favorite exercise dvd, it could be pilates, yoga, aerobics, dance, tae bo i don't care whatever I just want to find a good one, so all help would be great!
Here are some from my collection...


Eats today are as follows:
A delicious sorbet style thing, all it has in it is one frozen banana, one frozen mango & 1/4 freshly squeezed orange juice. It was so sorbet-ish and frozen and good!

At lunch I tried out these new soybean noodles I found, which tasted a little funny by themselves but mixed in with veggies, tofu and some vegan parmesan it was pretty good.
I also snacked on some sweet potato chips I found in a health food store, which were super yummy they tasted kinda like sweet potato skins after I bake them, yummmm...
Oh and I tried one tblsp molasses mixed in with a cup of soymilk and it's really delicious so if you need to boost your iron intake i'd recommend this, i had it cold but it would probably be scrumptious heated up
Alright I'm off to visit everyone's wonderful blog's and catch up on everyone's days see you all soon

Lol I have the ministry of sound pump it up dancemix workout thing.. I can't keep a straight face while i'm doing it though, have to shut all the curtains etc. and make sure NO ONE can see me!! :) Yogalates I love, I know that they do different yogalates videos for different purposes (stength, weight loss, spirit & mind etc..) so you maybe you could try a different one to switch it up a little bit. Sorbet looks delicious!! :) xxxx

I only have one to recommend because my workout DVD selection is pathetic! It's called Element: AM & PM Yoga and it's great for beginners (not sure what level you are but this is a good intro!). The intructor is calm and not too preachy. It's nice.

your sorbet looks really good!! as far as any dvds, i'm unfortunately no help myself, as i don't have any but have kinda been thinking i'd like some to use because right now all i really do it get on the tredmill (and use our new boflex;) but i think i'd enjoy a dvd a lot. sooo, i think i should be asking you for suggestions instead! : )

My friend wants to buy the ministry of sound DVD! I just bought Dance off the Inches with Camilla Dallerup. It's fun and quite a challenge for me as it seems I have no co-ordination, despite the fact I used to take ballroom dancing lessons!!

Burp~! said...

I was going to say that one of my favorites is the mtv yoga dvd, but I see you already have it! haha. Sorry i cant add anything more!

Danielle said...

I don't own any fitness dvds I mostly use On Demand for these things. If you have on demand try that it's updated pretty frequently so you won't get bored.
Your food looks delish!

Katie said...

Those workouts look so fun! I've never used a DVD before, but I just started doing yogadownloads so I guess it's sort of the same principle. I LOVE that noodle dish!

veggievixen said...

dailygoods said...

Hayley said...

Sharon said...

Wow, what an awesome collection! =D

Peanut Butter and Jenny said...

Whoa girl! That is quite the dvd lineup you got yourself, I am officially jealous! Usually I do the workout videos on exerciseondemand.com however my favorite dvd is Gaiam cardio pilates! Super relaxing but also a fabulous workout!

your noodles and sorbet look incredible by the way :) Hope you enjoyed them! Have a wonderful day pretty girl <3!!

shelby said...

Fun videos! I love getting new videos because I always get so bored.

Kiki said...

Sorry, I don't have any recommendations for you. I suck at picking out exercise DVD's. When I was seven, I had a really fun one called hip hop animal rock!

Yummy food. Soybean noodles sound interesting.

tofufreak said...

mmm.. your eats are yummy! :)

Ali said...

Sorry Amira, but being the loser that I am, I don't have any recommendations on a great exercise dvd for you. Super sorry about that.

That sorbet looks really good right now! And the soybean noodles actually look really good. That whole pasta thing looked really good.

River said...

Your sorbet looks delicious! I love those frozen fruit treats!

My favorite DVDs are the Rodney Yee yoga workouts. I have a few and love them all!

Erica said...

I agree with everyone- the sorbet looks very yummy :) Hmm...I'm not much for workout dvds, although I have been enjoying some of the Exercise tv shows. Jackie Warner from workout has a great dvd out.

lborg said...

Hey thanks so much for the suggestion, I think I'll definitely check it out and let you know what I think! I don't know when I'll get to it but I'll let you know! : ) How was your Monday?

theskinnyplate said...

strongandhealthy said...

Taylor said...

OHH I am so obsessed with sweet potato chips!! My favorite workout is the New York City Ballet Company workout!! It's so great and you will get so flexible from it!!

Thank you for your sweet comment........ it truly means so much to me personally!
