Come back to read my full guide to/review of T25
I started with a goal to workout 3 times a week at home in addition to 1 dance class. I created a ticksheet and added 5 short toning sessions too (just a few sets of squats, crunches and weightless arm exercises before bed). I really committed to it but, more importantly, kept it manageable and doable. When it's workout time I choose whatever workouts I please from T25 and the Blogilates YouTube channel and I've started seeing encouraging results!
My 3 workout sessions;
* T25 cardio/speed x2
* Blogilates upto 30 minutes x1
* Blogilates Roar ab workout at the start of every session (around 4 minutes)
I throw in an extra one only if I feel like it but my target is 3. With such a manageable target to meet I achieve it every week and feel good about my schedule; more than that and I'd see it as an unattainable chore to feel guilty about failing every week!
On my Blogilates day I pick around 4 videos to fill half an hour; Gangnam style, Daisy's dance workout, Heart on fire and a couple of others are among my most used.

A couple of weeks ago, with a foreign holiday coming up and 2 weddings in one weekend, I decided to go for it and try to workout everyday. I also realised I was slipping into my old habits of staying at my comfort level and not working hard enough, So, I took the plunge and moved up a level. To be continued.... :-)
