After almost 2 years in Haiti, I have become an exercise DVD guru.  No more gym visits, zumba classes, or walks in the park.  But, who needs that when you have DVD's?  I remember watching my Granny do exercise DVD's as a young girl, I always thought she looked quite silly.

Little did I know, I'd be using them "religiously" years down the road.  I've done my fair share of Jillian Michaels, Women's Fitness, and even Zumba (thanks to a great Christmas gift from the hubs).  Now, in the midst of pregnancy, I am discovering a whole new world of DVD' favorite so far:

I don't care what anyone says, Denise Austin has been around in the world of work-out DVD's FOREVER, so she must be doing something right.  Although she may not be taking me through boot camp every day, she is becoming my pregnancy coach in the world of fitness.

After busy days, lots of fast talking in Haitian Creole, and taking care of a variety of tasks, it's nice to release and zone out to the "dreamy" voice of Denise (as described by Kilee Bidwell.)

My goal in this, our first pregnancy, is to maintain my physical condition as best as possible.  I want to take care of myself and baby.  And...Trey also wants me to keep happy so my daily exercise is a MUST for those positive endorphins.

There will be plenty of time for boot camps once baby arrives, or perhaps being a mom will be boot camp enough!  If any of you have any other DVD's or must do activities in the world of becoming a mom, please let me know.

Now, off for my daily Denise!
