I'm going to check out Walmart today and see if they have Leslie Sansone: Walk at Home - 5 Day Slim Down - A Mile Each Morning. If so, I'll join you folks. I hate walking outside as I find it so boring so this dvd interests me.

My goal would only be one mile a day though as hopefully I can get back to my other workouts at some point.

Leslie's tapes are great Sharss. Hope you join us.:)

They should have at least one Leslie DVD there. I have several of her DVDs and love them. I enjoy walking outside too.

Today I did 4 miles total. One outside. (Was actually a little more
But unsure how much so I'm counting as one.

tttmom 04-01-2013 07:45 PM

I would like to join too. I am going to run down to Walmart to see if I can find the walking dvd too. Which one is the best? Any recommendations? Weather is too miserable to walk outside.

tttmom 04-01-2013 08:56 PM

Ok just got back from Walmart. I bought the Leslie Sansone Just Walk 5 Day Plan. I plan to start in the morning, 4/2. I haven't walked for awhile, I did a 1/2 marathon last spring and got plantar faschiatis (sp?) and was in pain for a long time. I hope it will be ok for this :) .

shunsweets 04-02-2013 04:09 AM

+ 3.5 miles today outside/treadmill

1.5 yesterday and 5 today.

Good luck this month, everyone! :up:

Sharss 04-02-2013 07:46 PM

+1 Mile today.

I couldn't find the Leslie Sansone dvd I wanted so picked up another one which I'm not happy with. Oh, she's great, but I was looking for a simple walk one, not a muscle workout one. I have other workouts I like and wanted a short mile walk one to do extra.

I found one of Leslie's YouTube Mile Walks which is perfect for me! :)

I like being part of this Thread as it'll keep me motivated when reading what others are doing even though I may feel like a wimp only doing one mile. :hyst:

April Goal: 30 Miles
1/30

Heheher 04-02-2013 07:59 PM

If you go to her site she has (or did have) a one mile video you can watch for free. :). I do that mile sometimes for variety.

shunsweets 04-03-2013 08:34 AM

also Heather, Jeanien, Maggie, Rose, Greta... and our star walker SHUNSWEETS...

It is only the 3rd of the month of April and we have so many walkers...this has helped me in the last couple of years be accountable for my walking...I have branched out somewhat but I still LOVE my walking.. (7 miles so far for April)

Today I switched gears and swam a mile in the lap pool at the gym...

Keep up the good work everyone...

1.5 miles outside in the A.M. & 2 miles on my treadmill in the P.M. = 3.5 miles for today! Keep walking everyone! :)

Gretalyn 04-03-2013 06:33 PM

No walking today, but I did finally do weights, for the first time in ages! So I'm still counting it as an accomplishment. ;)
