Let’s Do the 3-Mile Walk!

I mentioned in an earlier post this year that I have discovered a new workout which I have begun doing sometime in February.

Well, it is really a walking program which I found just by scanning the internet. I am referring to Leslie Sansone’s 3- mile walk at home program/workout as promoted by the American Heart Association. I find it very doable! And I no longer have any excuse not to “walk” when it is raining outside as I can do it right at home 🙂

Now this month of June has meant a better resolve for me to walk 3-5 times a week. And the reason behind that is that my husband is now doing the walk with me 🙂  He now does this before doing his regular work out.

According to Leslie, a certified fitness expert and collaborator with the American Heart Association, walking 3 to 5 times per week goes towards our general health. But if the goal is to lose weight, walks should be done 4 to 6 times per week. I am aiming this month for a 4-5 times per week walk. I think losing a pound or 2 would be great for me 🙂 But overall, I just want to walk towards better health and if I lose some weight in the process then that is well and good. You see, if we are not intentional in doing something active, we get stuck with the unhealthy sedentary lifestyle.

Leslie as can be seen in the video, encourages and inspires you while you walk. She incorporates other movements during the walk to also work your other muscles. I also love it that there is a warm up part and then the cool down part of the program.

So here is the 3-mile Walk video with Leslie. If I can do it, I believe so can you! Let’s do this!
