It is very popular to make a weight loss resolution when the New Year rolls around. I know that is my resolution this year...gotta lose that baby weight and no better time to do it than NOW!
I am also a big advocate for at-home workouts! I have worked out at home for almost 10 years, lost baby weight two times before from working out at home and I never have to leave the comfort of my living room, pay for the kids to go to a gym daycare or head out in the cold of winter to go to the gym! I love it!
If you are looking for some great at-home workout DVD's to get your resolution started and lose those stubborn pounds, then check out these great new DVD's from the Element Yoga series and Just Walk series! They are great for all levels but I really recommend them if you are just beginning an exercise routine!

Element Cardio and Conditioning Yoga
Filmed in a picturesque garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean, these two dynamic programs are designed to improve cardio conditioning, build strength and tone the whole body. The Cardio Program links together short holds of Hatha poses with several Vinyasa flows to help keep the heart rate elevated, increase blood flow and stimulate a healthy metabolism. The Vinyasa flows can build strength and flexibility, while the Hatha poses focus on developing strong, proper posture and balanced alignment. The Conditioning Program combines standing and floor poses specifically selected to strengthen major muscle groups, firm the core and sculpt some of the often overlooked smaller muscle groups. Together, these two programs can help you experience the real difference that yoga conditioning can make both in the way that you look and in the way that you feel. BONUS meditation included.
