Working on my Fitness

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

I've known about this trip down to Mexico with friends for a while now. But in true Lila-form, I've waited until 2 months before we fly out to try to minimize the ass-beneath-the-ass I've got going on. Dieting isn't really my thing, I may be one of the only females on earth happy with her weight, but I do need to tone my arms and rear. Also in true Lila-form, I'm not forking out money at a gym. So I researched yoga dvds, and bought what I think are 2 of the best on the market right now. If you're also working on your swimsuit ready body, try this combo on for size,

1. Mandy Ingber's Yogalosophy Workout by Gaiam ($12.99 @ Target)
Mandy breaks her sessions into a few different options - beginner to advanced - so the workout grows with you as you get stronger. I start out with her 35 minute toning workout, then I follow it up with one of Bethenny's,

2. Bethenny Frankel's Body by Bethenny Workout ($12.50 @ Amazon)
I like this 40 minute yoga program because it's classic yoga with lots of sun salutations, balances and stretches. Bethenny's partner here is Kristin McGee who gives solid direction on form throughout.

Combining these two workouts gives you an intense 75 minute workout getting your entire body. I don't do the combo every day, some days I only do Mandy's toning, other days I only do Bethenny's yoga. After a month of consistently doing these, I can say that my clothes fit a little better and I'm more confident - and I still have another month to keep working at it! What do you do to get your body ready for beach vacations? I want to know, so share what's working for you in the comments section below,



  1. I prefer yoga podcasts, looking at a video while exercising feels weird to me (bad multi-tasker)... I just try to go somewhere where I have to exercise while ON holiday, for example somewhere with lots of hills I have to walk up ;)

  2. Ah, and see, I'm a visual person so I need to see it to get it! I do love a vacation that draws you outdoors versus in ... North Carolina, Colorado, Arizona. And a Spa Getaway with plenty of yoga & massage is on my short-list of things I must do this year.
