Last weekend, I made a sort of confessional on my blog. In the post I need to move it move it, I admitted that I need to add exercise into my life. The WiiFit was not my thing and had to find something. Sunday night, while getting the little guy to settle, I turned on Exercise on Demand. I watched the start of several things and put them into my brain. After JSL was asleep, JL and I tried the DVD that I took out of the library. Problem: the wrong DVD was in the case.
We turned to Exercise on Demand and decided to try Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shed since I had been reading a lot about it. We ran into a few problems. First, we did not have enough space. Second, thanks to the lack of space, I encountered a jumping jack related injury from getting hit by my loving hubby. Third – damn Jillian makes you work hard! Talk about burning and hurting. I liked it in general, but until I have a bigger space it does not work well.
The next day I was sore. I knew that this was a good thing. It meant that I was working my muscles. I started to do more research on exercise videos to try. I kept coming back to the same person. That person was Leslie Sansone and her walking videos. Tuesday, when NHL got home from school, I put the Family Walking video on and gave it a try. Wow! The boys and I had a great time and 22 minutes later I had an amazing workout.
Wednesday morning the little guy and I set out to try another one of Leslie Sansone’s workouts. This time it was the Walk & Tone 2 mile routine. This was about 32 minutes and after I felt amazing. I was energized and wanted more. It actually made me obsessed with getting a DVD of my own. In the afternoon, I went out and purchased the only Leslie Sansone DVD that I could find.
Last night, JL and I tried it out. We did the one mile routine. That made 3 miles and about 46 minutes of exercise for me yesterday. The shocking part, I wanted more!
Early Thursday morning, the little guy and I were ready to "walk" with Leslie. I put on the new DVD and got ready to do 2 miles. I really liked it a lot and could feel it working, especially during the second mile. I felt like I could do more, but a certain toddler had other thoughts.
So my question this week is:
Have you ever done a Leslie Sansone workout? If you have, is there one (or more) that you would recommend? Any other suggestions would also be greatly appreciated.
