My new years resolution this year was to shed my excess weight and become fitter and more healthy. Yesterday i boguht an exercise video, which uses dancing as a way of keeping fit. The video is really fun to do but unfortunatley it involves a lot of jumping up and down. I took it up to my bedroom to do it there becaue i felt self concecious (sp?) about doing it in front of my family. As soon as i started my mother came upstairs to see what on earth i was doing and told me if i was going to do that i had to do it downstairs because it was so noisy, and she was worried the ceiling was caving in. Now there are two video players downstairs which i could use but neither one of them is ever free because someone else is always using them. The only place i can do this in private is in my room, but my mum won't let me do it there. Any suggestions as to waht i could do?

If you have to do it downstairs maybe you could ask a friend to do it with you. I feel a lot less self concious if someone is doing it with me. And don't be embarassed about trying to workout in front of your family. I took at step class at ballys once and I looked like a total idiot, I went with my best friend so it wasn't too bad. I always ended up facing the wrong direction and going the wrong direction and always being a step behind but thats what made it so much fun because I was able to laugh at myself and realize that yes I looked silly but I didn't care. If you do it with someone who is a good friend or you could even ask your mom, you will fell alot better about doing it infront of people because you won't be alone. At least that is how I feel more comfortable doing things.
