Need your input please.....

I love Walk Away the Pounds! Leslie Sansone will always be one of my first loves. Denise Austin ranks very high too. But I don't feel challenged anymore. I love to walk and enjoy the walks with Leslie but I need something more. I even did the 4 mile on Friday and I got bored and ended up watching TV during the walk. That is bad.

I will still probably use her walks in addition to something else. This is where my spark friends are needed. What are the workouts you love? What are your go to's?? I need input!!


Thank you in advance!!

    I found the 30 day shred on youtube and loved it. I did it only for a week though because I ended up hurting myself during my walk and then never got back into it. I broke it down into sections though because it is tough but you get use to it quick. It is a cardio and strength all in one.

    I think it is a GREAT idea to mix it up.

    Have you tried a cardio dance or zumba workout? That may be fun for you.

    Don't get me wrong -- I love Leslie and have no plans to stop doing the WATP series. Any and all of them! But I just need something more.

    Thank you all for your input!!

    I love to walk outside first thing in the mornings; if it is raining I use Leslie as well.

    I started out walking to , with headphones on and listening to the Beach Boys. Then I felt as you do and moved on to zumba.

    I got the first one Zumba Fitness Join the Party. At first I did the 20mins beginner and gradually increased in the points to open up new steps, sometimes I just couldn't keep up or do the steps but I just did my best and kept replaying it each day till I 'got' it.
    I was happy and cheerful and content. That was the start of the 'joy' for me.

    The worst part of being ill at the moment is not doing it, I've really never been happier than when I can dance along.

    Hope you get lots of great ideas for workouts and find your joy in one of them.

    I love Leslie Sansone too... and I just bought her latest fitness dvd: Walk It Off in 30 Days. One day is 30 minutes of energetic cardio with a varying group of young and early middle-aged people. (Lots of bright color and there's energizing music!) The time SPEEDS by. The alternating day is 30 minutes of strength training with weights. (Same group of people.)

    Since it was going to be 30 days, I used a calendar and put stars on the days that I did the workout: red stars for the cardio, yellow stars for the strength training. (Yes, I have a few days here and there where I didn't get the workout done, but I just figured I would keep going until I had 30 workouts done!)

    Let me restate this because it's VERY important in my book: The time SPEEDS by in both workouts! Additionally, I began with 3 lb weights but have progressed to heavier weights. I am LOVING it! Even more so now that I'm using the heavier weights!

    Anyway, I just wanted to throw this out there in case you want to give Leslie one more chance.

    Also, after my 30 days are complete, I plan to bring back my Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred" and see what I think. It's a toss-up between that and going back to the workout from the book, "Lift Like a Man, Look Like a Goddess." Very motivating!

    I go to the outdoors to walk because although the overall surroundings are the same, who or what living being I will see changes all of the time. Plus I love getting out there and seeing the wildlife!
