This is my friend Leslie. Leslie Sansone of Walk away the Pounds. Leslie and I have been walking in my living room every morning.

We have the one mile, two mile, and three mile walk. We used hand weights to pump up the intensity.

I have been doing the two miles for a little over a week. Every now and then I put in the three mile walk. I've never finished it yet but I am getting farther into it.

Leslie is always ready to walk no matter what the weather is like outside. It beats a treadmill!

Fitness trainer Leslie Sansone created a video centered on the idea of "in-home walking" in order to make exercise accessible to everyone. By removing the usual barriers to a regular workout, such as cost, schedule and lack of comfort around strangers, Sansone's Walk Away The Pounds videos have encouraged millions of people.

"One of the biggest gifts God gave us was this gorgeous feeling of not only empowerment, but also the coping and peace that exercise brings us," she says. "And no drug, no pill, nothing takes the place of what our natural body produces when we are in motion, because God's design for muscle and bone is for them to be active. We're meant to be spiritual and physical beings, and when we're in motion we are happier, healthier, more creative, and smarter."

I bought the tapes years ago and of course.....never used them. I'm still waiting for the endorphins to kick in ......but at least I have a walking buddy.

I love her!! :) I got her tapes, and book awhile ago- and they helped so much. I "lost" her, but now I'm ready again, and she and I are starting it up on Monday. She's a great buddy!

Thanks for dropping by my blog! I've heard so much about the WATP DVD's and I've been thinking about buying one for months. What exactly is it? I picture walking in place in front of the TV but of course that's probably not it at all right?!? lol Anyway, can you give me any more info?

Ahhh! Thank you! I'm going to invite Leslie into MY home ... I'll go look for that tape today!

Thanks for the info. Sounds like we're in the same spot. I barely have room to think in my house, let along wedge any exercise equipment in!! This sounds like just what I need. Maybe I'll actually get around to buying it now!
