It is SO nice to see all of you! Jenny! I'm so glad you are back!

They took away the signature so we cannot post tickers from other sites anymore. They are supposed to be working on an exercise ticker of their own but it hasn't happened yet.

I have decided to change my goal and I am going to follow the workout calendar at Leslie's Walk AT Home website. It can be found here:

http://www.walkathome.com/walkclub2/index.php/calendar/

You don't have to be a member of the Walk Club to use the calendar--in fact I don't know why I still have a membership. I never renewed mine but my account is still there. I emailed them but nothing was done. I guess I'll enjoy it while I can!

January 1 and 2 workouts done!

Hi everyone! I searched the forum for Leslie Sansone and found this thread. I'm so glad I did! I have the 3 mile start walking dvd. My goal is a minimum of 45 miles for the month of January. I did the first 3 miles last night, and it felt amazing! I really didn't think I could do it! I will admit that I have to modify the kickbacks just a little bit...but I feel that if I keep working, I'll be able to do them effortlessly soon. Great to meet ya'll!

I did my first 2 miles with Leslie yesterday and 1.5 miles on the treadmill today. I think I will start with a goal of 45 miles for January. Only 41.5 miles to go!

Hi, my name is Sara and I have just joined today. I am familiar with SWaT and have used it at work. I made two resolutions for the New Year: 1) write down everything I eat and 2) exercise every day. I didn't choose weighing in once a week, because losing weight is not my primary goal, but to be healthy and strong are. I have used MFP multiple times in the past, but once I strayed from my goal, I would stop keeping the food diary. It's so easy to fool myself when I don't commit it to paper. I am worried that I won't be able to keep my resolve. I'm really nervous about not sticking with it, but I am going to think of this as stopping smoking. I tried at least seven times before now being smoke free for 20 years. I really want this for me and I think I am beginning to understand that it is a lifelong commitment.

Since my kiddos went back to school today, I was able to get my workout done this afternoon rather than waiting for late evening. Did Leslie's 3 miles, so that's a total of 6/45 miles for January.

I'm measuring my exercise by minutes since I change up what I do everyday. Yesterday logged 30 with Leslie Sansone and today 52 at the gym for a total of 82/720 for the month so far. Feeling good!

It's great to find this group. I am afraid 60 miles is too high for me, but I am willing to try. I recently bought 4 of her DVDs and have enjoyed the couple of miles I've tried. However, I can't see the calendar at Leslie's site as her Walk Club is full and they are not accepting any new registrations. If anyone can share some of what is on the calendar, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I'm sorry--the calendar page used to be open to anyone. The whole site looks different when I'm logged out! I wonder what's going on.
If you send me a message with your email address (don't post it here in an open forum, please!) I will send you the file as an attachment (it's a PDF file so you need Adobe Reader to open it. That's a free program and can be downloaded at:

I forgot to post this last night. I got in another mile on the Wii Fit Free Step after my kiddos went to bed, so that's 7/45 miles for January.

I'm so excited I found this board. I love the walking videos and bought two more to add some variety to what I do. I'll be starting my walking plan tomorrow and my goal is to walk 36 miles in January. I know it isn't a huge goal but I want to make sure I start out with something obtainable.

I just did the 3 mile walk. How do you log the calories for this?
January 3, 2012 8:05 AM
I would like to know this too.

Also what kind of calorie burn does one get with a LS 3 mile workout- I don't own a heart monitor.

once i can put some weight on my foot - i'll be here - the good news - I'm on day 2 of no smoking (had cut back to 5/day) -- the bad news - for my LONG w/end - I woulda swore I broke bones in my foot (ran into, tripped and fell backwards pushing my foot upwards because of and on my son's bar bell) - today i can put (some) weight on it --- the combo of the two --- has been EAT --- its only until i can get back on my foot - then watch out --- leslie and me will be kicking some ..lard -

Yay! I walked through the cold today, but it wasn't as cold as the weather channel said. But it was cold as heck with the wind chill. I think it was around 45 degree's and strong winds. It almost blew me off balance.


I walked 4 miles today ( I have 71 more miles to go )

I can't believe MFP done away with the signature so you can put your ticker in "Bummer" "The pits" frown UGH!!!

MFP also changed what's displayed on the home page ( news feed) . to much information of what others are doing, who there new friends are to what there last comment was and so on & etc.
What in the heck where they thinking...... Why change something that was working perfectly before.

Enough complaining blushing


Have a GREAT Day ALL

Low impact aerobics is really close. Many of her DVDs are 4 miles per hour (15 minutes each mile) .... so walking 4 MPH (no incline) is also close.

I just got done doing Leslies 3 mile walk....I might go for a short walk with the dog in a little bit also..
3/60
I also have a wii and enjoy doing exercises on it. I havent used it in awhile though, I should start using it again. I usually do wii fit plus. I was thinking about getting dance3. Have any of you done this? Is it fun? and worth the cost? What other wii games do you do?

The only other (fitness) game I have is Abba - You Can Dance, but believe me I CAN'T dance, so it's not seen much use. The Zumba games get really good reviews ... you might look into those.
