I write to you this morning with semi-numb fingers, all while wearing two long-sleeved shirts, a sweater, sweatpants, socks and fuzzy slippers.
It’s cold in Pittsburgh.
So, since I am all about this fitness crap, I thought I would lend myself — oh, and you, too! — a little help.
Why not workout inside?
According to Amazon.com, the top five fitness DVDs this morning are:
1.) The Biggest Loser Workout: Cardio Max DVD ~ Bob Harper (II)
2.) The Biggest Winner How to Win By Losing: The Complete Body Workout (5-Disc DVD Set: Shape Up- Front, Shape Up- Back, Cardio Kickbox, Maximize – Full Frontal, Maximize – Back in Action) DVD ~ Jillian Michaels
3.) The Biggest Loser Workout Power Sculpt DVD ~ Jillian Michaels
4.) The Complete Collection of Sweatin’ to the Oldies DVD ~ Richard Simmons
5.) Kundalini Yoga for Beginners and Beyond DVD ~ Ana Brett & Ravi Singh (I have actually wanted this DVD for quite some time.)
And since you are all probably thinking the same thing I am (Richard Simmons? Really?), here are some new workouts available online that will get you started TODAY, while you wait for your new DVDs:

As for me, have pity on my soul. It is my sister’ s birthday and I promised her a walk … outside. Saying no is not an option. She is scary.
