Dear Cammy
Thank you for your kind words - they have made my day! The exercise programme you describe is excellent and as it consists of so much aerobic exercise (jogging, intense aerobics, etc), it should stimulate your metabolism and promote weightloss. If you use a balanced, low-fat, high-fibre slimming diet (click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet) together with all this exercise, then you should lose about 1 kg per week, so your goal of 5 kg in 30 days is attainable.
Good luck with the programme
