Working out can be such a drag.  Especially after having a baby.  

I was in a serious slump after the tyke was born.  It didn't help that the weather was getting colder and we had just moved to a new state.  I didn't know anyone, and we weren't paying for a gym membership because I know I would have used it maybe a handful of times.  I was super emotional and needed an outlet.  I was in love with the idea of working out, but I hated doing it.  
Enter Jessica Smith.  I don't really know her, but she has been my online personal trainer since January.  She has over 100 *free* workout videos on YouTube.  And they're not just your average lame-o workouts.  I just did one yesterday called, "Dance Party".  She has ballet workouts, yoga, pilates, kickboxing, toning, cardio, body weight only, low-impact, power walking, super challenging workouts... you name it!  And they're not overly long or crazy, and she gives modifications for almost every exercise.  I started using her videos and was so excited to find something that was free that only required a few light dumbbells that I could do on my time without leaving the baby.  Did I mention it was FREE?  

She reads the comments she gets on Facebook and on YouTube and answers them all.  I just thought I would inform all of you about this amazing resource.  I find that I look forward to working out with Jessica almost every day, and I haven't worked out six days a week since before my wedding.  She is awesome.  You should check her out.  And by check her out, I mean her videos.  Well, you could probably check her out, too.
