I have struggled repeatedly with chronic back pain as well as insomnia.  I also am at that beautiful midlife point where my weight and mood are often a challenge for me.

Ahh, the beauty of aging and how it helps me find more and more compassionate ways of being with what’s true for me while also “working the system.”

Most of my life, I’d describe myself as kinda low energy and sluggish.  I’d much prefer a good book to a run outdoors.  Yet, I found that the extra weight was weighing me down and creating issues for me like high cholesterol, increased back pain and fatigue.

Thank God I discovered the work of Leslie Sansone. She is a genius at inspiring me to move my body in safe ways that work for me.   I’ve been doing her DVD’s for about a year and have lost over 30 pounds and actually kept it off.  It’s a miracle because if the truth be told, though I try and eat fresh fruits, vegetables and lean protein I can bounce around in that area sometimes.

I also find that by consistently doing her workouts, I sleep better at night and have more energy and creativity during the day.   My cholesterol is now normal too!

The best feature of her work is that it is so do-able. Most of her workouts can be done in 10 minute increments and believe it or not, you can really shift your mood by doing a quick walk with her.  Many of her DVDs are available at the library as well so you can try them out and see if you like them.  You can also find them at www.amazon.com

She reminds me that you can’t do this wrong which as a recovering perfectionist, I really appreciate.  She’s got a great sense of humor and a gentle encouraging manner.  But, most of all, she keeps me moving at a good clip and I have the results to prove it.

Check her out here.

Let me know what you do to keep yourself in shape.   I love hearing how you keep yourself well!  Also, if you aren’t into moving and have challenges that you’d like to explore – feel free to share those here.   I’m here to support you in whatever way is helpful.
