Once upon a time ago (like in 2005 and 2006) I lost 100 pounds.  I did it all by counting calories, walking and doing workout videos.  There wasn't nearly as much free material back then as there is now so I had spent over a year doing the same 5 workout videos and counting calories on scraps of paper.

I say all of this to tell you about my favorite new find:  Hoopla!  Now I've had the free Hoopla app for a year or two, but haven't used it for workout videos until the last couple of weeks.  Hoopla might not be available for everyone, but it is connected to many public libraries.  All you have to do is enter your library card info and you have instant access to SO MUCH FREE STUFF.  I've been reading e-books and listening to audio books on it for a long time.

But this is what I've been doing recently....

The videos are only available for 72 hours after borrowing them so don't make the same mistake I did and borrow 10 videos all at once :)

For those of you who can't get Hoopla, Youtube is still a wealth of free material.  In fact, I did an old school Mari Winsor Pilates video this morning.  My buns will surely thank me later.  Now if only I could stop eating like a linebacker...
