I don't see why not. The SP program is based on 15 minutes of walking - I don't know anything about the Leslie Sansone program. I figure as long as you are walking, walk with us!

Does walking to Leslie Sansone tapes count?

Khatlady - I'm over in the Twin Cities and this week has been another amazing one of being able to walk outside but you're right, we're probably in for some serious shoveling soon. Like the karma of weather LOL

MrsBush, go up to the search box and type in "beginner walking workout" - it should be the first result you get below the solid line. Unfortunately I don't know how to post links yet LOL There you'll be able to read the full workout.

Basically it is a program that starts with 15 minutes - 5 minutes warm up, 5 minutes of brisk walking, 5 minutes of cool down - for the first week. From there, you add a couple of minutes of brisk walking per week to your workout.

KhatLady, fortunately I have a treadmill here at home or all I would be doing is shoveling this time of year also!

DonnaLee, glad to have you onboard!

Anyone else game? emoticon

"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

I have never done that and have been thinking about it. Here is where the lack of logic comes in. I am in Wisconsin. We have no snow and warm weather. Very unusual, especially since we have set snow records in the few previous years. So I figure if I officially join a walking program, my main exercise will be shoveling.
