Default New and looking for some at home work out ideas

It is still a big chilly and WAY muddy here for walking on our road (we live on a dirt road) so I'm looking for some good suggestions for inside workouts for now. I do own a few WATP DVDs but after the first week or so they tend to not be challenging enough for me. We have no workout gear in our house so it has to be something I can either order as a DVD or something that I will have the materials for here already.

I used to do WATP exclusively but they became a bit boring. I just started Turbo Jam a couple weeks ago and am loving it! I still do WATP once in awhile (usually when I'm just not feeling up to TJ). I have to say that even TJ is a more intense workout, I feel like it goes by a lot quicker than WATP.

I've been doing the Leslie Sansone walk from home workouts and i love them, you can find them for free on Youtube (that's where i watch them from) all the way up to 5 miles.

I think that is my issue with WATP it seems to take forever to do each workout they just drag. They don't move fast enough for me anymore and even with jogging in place for parts of the tapes it seems to drag so I just don't enjoy them as much.

I will look into the others we have amazon prime and hulu and I think I remember seeing a few free ones on there.

If you google Turbo Jam, there are some clips on Youtube and I think there's even a full-length workout on Vimeo. Also, if your local library has DVDs, check there. Mine had a copy that I checked out before buying.

Thank you! I signed up for an aerobics/boot camp/zumba class being offered by the local Y once a week for teachers at the school, but I need to do more than once a week stuff.
