What Leslie Sansone DVD’s do I use?
Recently, I had a Spark Friend (NPDSLEUTH) ask what Leslie Sansone DVD’s do I have and like to use.
So I thought I would write a blog about that today.
The first one I ever bought was a VHS tape titled: “Walk Away the Pounds with Leslie Sansone.”
It was done in 2001 and included two blue inflatable rubber balls that you filled with water. It was a 1 Mile Walk and I still use it from time to time. Yes, I still have the blue balls filled with water and have them close to my work out area.
Another set I purchased from Home Shopping Network ~ QVC . These were part of Leslie’s “Walk Slim” program. They include:
Walk Slim – Fast Start! 1 & 2 Mile Walk. 3 Fast Miles.
Walk Slim – Fast Firming! A Total Body workout to FIRM and SLIM your arms, legs and flatten your tummy!
Walk Slim – 4 Fast Miles!
Walk Slim – Fast & Firm! 4 Really “BIG” Miles!
In January 2011, I purchased a new set of Leslie’s DVD’s from QVC and really love these.
They included soft 2 pound hand weights. And have really helped with firming my arms.
These are from her “Total Body Slimming System.”
Burn Body Fat & Sculpt Your Arms: 1 Mile ~ 2 Mile ~ 3 Mile. For a total of 6 Miles!
It also included; “Power Walk with Friends.” This is my current ‘go to, favorite’ DVD. It’s 30 minutes long, it uses the soft hand weights for part of the work out and it’s FUN! I just finished it before I sat down to write this blog. Love It!!! I do add a pair of 1 Pound Weights that I purchased separately so that sometimes I work out with 3 Pound Hand Weights – like Leslie does in some of these DVD’s.
In December 2010, I got “5 Mile Fat Burning Walk.”
I love this one too. It has a Mile Maker that Let's You Choose:
It too is fast paced and FUN!
I also have “5 Day Slim Down.” A Mile Each Morning.
Day 1: Classic Walk
Day 2: Sculpt Your Arms
Day 3: Slim Your Legs
Day 4: Trim Your Tummy
Day 5: Speed Walk
It also includes a “Super Breakfast Meal Plan to Kick Start Your Metabolism in the Morning.”
A DVD that a purchased recently, but have only started using is: “Walk Slim 5 REALLY BIG MILES.”
Where you choose a 1,2,3,4 or 5 mile INVIGORATING WALK. It includes a Toning Band.
I also enjoy Leslie’s DVD titled” “A Closer 2 Mile Walk.” It’s from her “Walk By Faith Series.”
It’s a very enjoyable way “to complete this connection of mind, body and spirit.”
Two DVD’s that I always have on top of my “Leslie pile” are ones that she produced in cooperation with the American Heart Association. They are “Leslie Sansone START WALKING At Home ~ 1 & 2 Mile Walk. Which is for Beginner/Intermediate. It has One 20 minute Gentle Walk & One 30 Minute Brisk Walk. Love those!!!
The other one is s 3 Mile Fast-Paced Walk that includes a Bonus of 5 Mini Workouts. I use these often to get a good workout that is fast and enjoyable. I always feel so good after I do them!
My younger sister started using Leslie’s DVD’s last winter when she couldn’t run due to an injury. She said that she has never toned up and lost as much from her waist and inner legs as she had when using Leslies’ DVD’s. I know I have thinner thighs at the weight I am right now than I have in the past when I weighed this amount. So I have to give the credit to doing these DVD’s regularly. They also have “excuse-proofed” my reason for not exercising in the winter: “I live in Minnesota and it’s too cold; too icy; etc. to go out and walk.” Not any more. For the past 2 winters I have been a faithful Leslie follower and it has helped me lose weight and now, maintain my weight.
I keep hearing it said that if you find an activity that you enjoy, you will ‘stick with it’. And sticking with it is key for me. I love to walk – outdoors…but when I can’t – I can walk with Leslie!
Have a great week and take a walk if you can!

This was posted in my church's weekly bulletin.
I wanted to share it with all of you.
Recipe for a Happy New Year. . . . . . . . . . . . . . Anonymous
Take twelve fine, full-grown months; see that these are thoroughly free from old memories of bitterness, rancor and hate, cleanse them completely from every clinging spite; pick off all specks of pettiness and littleness; in short, see that these months are freed from all the past—have them fresh and clean as when they first came from the great storehouse of Time. Cut these months into thirty or thirty-one equal parts. Do not attempt to make up the whole batch at one time (so many persons spoil the entire lot this way) but prepare one day at a time.
Into each day put equal parts of faith, patience, courage, work (some people omit this ingredient and so spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fidelity, liberality, kindness, rest (leaving this out is like leaving the oil out of the salad dressing— don’t do it), prayer, meditation, and one well-selected resolution. Put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor.
May the New Year be one full of good health and much happiness for each of you!

I just got the January, 2012 issue of Fitness magazine and saw the compact article titled "Believe It to Achieve It."
What it said is: keep up your can-do attitude for three weeks and it may be enough to snap your motivation into autopilot.
Researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign "found that among former couch potatoes who consistently worked out three times a week, those who scored high on a scale of confidence in their capabilities on day 21 stuck to their new regimen for the rest of the year."
"Planning when, where and how you're going to exercise eventually causes a shift in behavior to where exercising becomes more automatic," says lead study author Edward McAuley, Ph.D. - professor of psychology.
Or other things I hear myself saying are:
"Fake It Till I Make It!" And "Act as If."
"Believe It to Achieve It!"
You Can DO IT!
