2 mile walk!

I have told you all before how hard exercise was for me. I have used this Morning 1 mile walk video for awhile now and was really getting tired of it, so I decided to look for something different. I found this DVD at my local library and decided to give it a try. Today was the first day that I tried it. This workout was 2 miles and it seemed to me to use the upper body more and really got my whole body working. Leslie Sansone also does different aerobic steps in this tape. I loved it. It is a great workout and I walked 2 miles already this morning! I still am having a hard time getting a night walk in, so I guess that is my next goal. Leslie talks you all the way through the workout and gets you to the 2 mile mark!
Also, I found this neat new WW Activity Calculator online to help me figure out how many extra points I should add for exercising. I already got 3 extra points for my 2 mile walk! I feel sooo good after exercising today!
For my food and exercise log for today go here!
Update: I walked another 2 miles with the kids this afternoon, it was so fun to walk with them! My twins fell on the floor after about 10 minutes and are taking a nap now. My oldest is home from school again today because school was called off because of slick conditions this morning and he enjoyed it too. Well, now my legs are really cramping! I take this medicine that takes away my iron and I have to eat stuff like orange juice and bananas, too bad they both are two points! I have also started taking a vitamin. Hopefully that will help my leg cramps that I have been having!

Oh, I have her video's and use them. I use to do them on my lunch hour at work. I could really see results when doing the 1 mile on a daily basis...I was just saying to myself this morning after my weigh-in (lost 8 1/2 in 3 weeks) that I am going back to those tapes while it is too snowy out to walk the trails. Keep up the good work...I check on you often and you motivate me too.
