I feel like Frankenstein.

Last year, I had to cancel my gym membership because I couldn't afford it anymore.  It was okay during the summer and fall, because I could get outside and walk.  But ever since winter set in, I've been feeling pretty sedentary.  So yesterday I checked out a workout DVD from the library, and decided I would just start doing what I could inside.

Except I only made it through about the first fifteen minutes, because I can't figure out how to do it.  And this is always my problem with workout DVDs, and every time I try again I'm like, "maybe this time I will magically have become more coordinated!"  But I never do.  The women on the screen look so graceful and athletic, and I just feel like my arms and legs don't know how to work at the same time.  By the time I manage to actually work out how the move is supposed to go, the perky chipper little thing running the video has already moved on.  And I know, I know, you have to practice and it might take a couple times before you get everything down.  I still end up feeling like an absolute nitwit.

Does anyone have any workout video recs that don't require you to be graceful or coordinated?  Because I think I'm just going to start making super upbeat playlists and dancing around like a coked-out Elaine from Seinfeld.
