Exercising When One Can Not Get Out


My family will surely make fun of me for writing this post. Oh well…here it goes… I am a BIG fan of the Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds videos. Needless to see the rest of my household is not on board. Oh I’ve tried to get them to join me over the years. The kids have tried. However, no one seems to like my videos as much as I do.

I must say, there are advantages to using exercise tapes.

  1. If it rains one does not get wet.
  2. If it is dark outside, no worries, there are lights on inside.
  3. One doesn’t get lonely, as there are a group of walkers to join.
  4. It is a program that get’s the heart rate going.
  5. Most importantly, it is FUN!

So, if feeling a bit isolated, not getting the proper exercise, can’t get out because it’s been raining, don’t like walking by yourself, do not despair! Try one of Leslie Sansone’s Walk Away the Pounds videos and keep in shape. Might I recommend my favorite… Walk Away the Pounds Walk and Sculpt. It contains the 1 mile, 2 mile, and 3 mile walks. A group of walkers join Leslie to walk in place together to music. It is easy and they make the walking time fly by. These can be bought as DVD’s or you-tube has some videos. There are even some sights that carry Sansone’s walks on apps.

No more excuses! Get fit and Happy Walking!

Walking…A Great Way to Start the Day


It rained here last night. On my morning walk the air was brisk and the sun was shinning. With hands tucked in my pockets I walked along and took in the beauty of the morning. Drops of dew were glistening on the plants and Christmas lights in the neighborhood. Birds were chirping on the wires and in the treetops. Neighbors driving by waved hello. A boy walking to school responded to my “good morning”. Appreciating the simple beauty in every day…a great way to start the day.
