I’m about to embark on something that is either going to change my life or cause my head to explode.
Shortly after starting this blog, I wrote a post about my favorite Leslie Sansone workouts. As I was going through my pile of DVDs, I realized I have accumulated A LOT of Leslie Sansone workouts over the past ten years or so.
Some of them I love and have fond memories of. Some of them I hated. Some of them I’ve never done.
I have a love/hate relationship with Leslie Sansone workouts. When I haven’t worked out in a really long time, I can do one of her 30-minute workouts, get through it well enough, and end the workout feeling a sense of accomplishment. Also, I really, really appreciate that the moves are basic and don’t take any dance skill or coordination (which I have little of).
On the other hand, Leslie has one of those personalities you can only take so much of. (Clarification: “I” can only take so much of. “You” may have a different reaction to her.)
On good days, I appreciate her light banter and giggles. On days when I’m feeling frustrated and agitated, I just want to mute the volume on my TV.
So, I got to thinking about all these workouts and I decided to do a Leslie Sansone workout challenge. Originally, the idea was to just do 30 days. Then I was going to do 45 days. Finally, I settled on 90 days. Why?
Over the years, Leslie has put dozens and dozens of workout DVDs. (If you want to see an extensive list, I’ll include on at the end of this post.) I think I could get through 90 days and do a different workout for each day. Variety is going to keep things interesting.
I also like that her workouts range from 15-60 minutes long which adds to the variety. With so many options, I felt like I couldn’t do a Leslie Sansone workout challenge justice if I only did it for a few weeks.
Of course, the reality is, no matter what theme the workout has, I’ll be doing the same basic moves day in and day out. I may lose my mind because of this…
Also, the first week of August, I’m going to NYC for the BlogHer conference. I’d like to have lost more weight by then. I’m hoping do this challenge will be a fun, cool thing to do to help me lose weight and feel good about attending the conference.
I’ll also be doing a 30-minute treadmill workout each day and walking outside.
Every day, I’ll write a short blog post detailing my L.S workout.
Get into this challenge with me!
If you’re a Leslie Sansone fan and want to join in with me (you may just want to do 14 or 30 days), leave a comment below. We’ll do this together.
If you don’t want to do the challenge, or have no idea who Leslie Sansone is, I double-dare you to get up right now and do this 3-minute mini workout:
