Walk at Home
with Leslie Sansone
A few years ago I lost 60 pounds by walking with Leslie Sansone DVD's. It was easy and I loved it. I kept the weight off for awhile and it felt so good. Unfortunately I had an episode with a slipped disk and a pinched nerve that made me stop...plus I hurt my foot, so I became sedentary again and put my weight back on.
Because I have other health issues, I have not felt well for quite awhile. And since I put my weight back on that is adding to my problems.
This morning I got up at 6AM and decided I would try to start the one mile walk routine again. I wasn't sure if my foot would hurt, or if my neck would tense up...but I am desperate to feel better, so I thought it was worth a try. And...I DID IT!!!! I am hoping I can work up to the 2 and 3 mile eventually...but for now I am just hoping and praying that I can continue to do the 1 mile and get myself going again. Please pray for me.
