hellooo is anybody there?

It’s been a busy week.  I had a couple of social get togethers with friends, that’s always fun!

I still haven’t finished the kitchen floor.  It’s so hard to do around the doorways with the critters in the way. I’ll get there.

I haven’t been to home depot to get the light fixture yet, nor have I painted the kitchen wall, but I WILL! 

What I want to tell you about today is that I’m still walking away the pounds with Leslie Sansone. BUT, Rose (confessions of a curbshopaholic) told me on the phone last week that she does it from youtube on her ipad.  huh what?  ONLINE?  youtube?  sign me up!

so, this is the one I’ve been doing all week:



Someone mentioned to me that walking isn’t a good way to lose weight.  Well, she may be right.  I still am only down a couple of pounds after 6 weeks.  BUT I can tell a difference in my stomach.  Muscle weighs more than fat, right?  Muscle helps burn calories, right?

I’ve done 5 miles every day.  Generally I do 2 or 3 in the morning, and then finish it in the evening.  If I’m unable to do it in the evening, then I do ALL FIVE miles in the morning.

So, if you’ve been wondering who Leslie Sansone is, or IF you want to invest in a new workout routine, now you can try before you buy—watch some of her videos on youtube.    For now I’ll stick with this 5 mile routine.  I do have to modify the arm stuff because of the shoulder.  BUT, I’m hoping I can gain some strength in the muscle and help it overall.


So, I’m 6 weeks in, and I might have a head start on you but if you are a better eater than me, you will probably see some weight loss.

I’m still enjoying a couple of pieces of chocolate each day and a coke.  I’m drinking a LOT of water.

here’s to a better me!

see ya,



  1. Way to keep at it Gail! I NEED to join you on this! I also need to stop drinking so much Diet Coke but I don't think I'd ever give it up completely. Have a great weekend!

  2. I'm still here....just not getting through my mail at the regular pace. I think you are doing great on your exercise it walking or the workout...and YES....muscle does weigh more...just watch out and don't start looking like Lou Ferrigno. lol (I couldn't think of a female body builder's Good luck to you!!!
