Stream of Consciousness Sunday: I'm a Walker!


I've found a new fitness regime. And though I'm excited about it, I find myself reluctant to tell people about it because it would be like the 12th exercise program that I've started since I had little M (2 years ago). I have the best intentions when I begin, honest, but somehow I get discouraged, distracted, disinterested... ugh. But ok, I'll share, yet again:

Today I started "Walk Away the Pounds". It's the in home walking program by Leslie Sansone, where you can walk 1-5 miles depending on which dvd you do. And it lets you know as you're side-stepping, kicking, and marching, how far you've been "walking". I've heard great things about it. Many women who have done this fitness program, along w/ a healthy diet, have lost upwards of 50 lbs! I did a mile this morning and it was really good. I felt great that I "walked" a mile, and I loved the simplicity. The steps are simple but you still feel like you're getting a workout.

I really hope that I stick with this. At the end of the day, I want to feel healthy, have energy, and feel good about myself. My goal is to do a mile 6 days a week for 2 weeks, then move up to the 2 mile walk after that. Wish me luck! And if you have any experience with the program, let me know!

This was my 5 minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…
■Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.

■Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.


  1. Cool concept - you don't have to worry about the weather or the dreaded (for me) treadmill. Good luck as you continue with the walking.

  2. You can do it! Keep it going. You will feel soooo god!

  3. Good luck! I write often about the new thing I've discovered that finally is going to help me get in shape. And then I get bored or distracted. But I'll be looking for another thing soon!
