~ 6 Months - Walking With Leslie ~

It has been 6 months now that I started walking, eating better,loosing weight . I have to tell you, its amazing how your body responds to exercise . I feel great !! I have so much more energy all day long, sleep better !! I wish I could have drop the pounds faster but this is how my body is . I have to just push through and it will eventually come off. I am down 22.9 lbs (like a slow drip) My goal is to be down 25 lbs by Christmas . We shall see.......
My walking is going way better than I thought possible. I can remember June 12th of this year when I first started to walk (again) with Leslie Sansone. I really couldn't finish the first mile ! I am serious!! Now I can walk 5 miles with her DVDs and love it!!
I am a member of Leslie Sansone's Walk Club online and they have challenges going on all the time . I joined the 90 Day Challenge at the end of August til the end of Nov. Before we started we logged in our weight and our measurements. In 90 days I loss 9.3 lbs , 3 1/2 inches from by waist,2 1/2 inches from each of my thighs, 1 inch from the hips . The Boobs stay the same !! LOL!!
We had another challenge called "The Day After Thanksgiving Challenge" . The challenge was for the 4 days right after Thanksgiving , we had to walk 28 miles (divided up any way we wanted) 6 glasses of water a day , 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day , 15 push ups a day ( I did the wall), 20 abs crunches a day . Sounds easy ??? Well let me tell you . ITS NOT!!! I was walking 7 miles a day !! Thank goodness it was only for 4 days !!
November was a big walking month for me I logged in 109 miles !!
