From the beginning I really didn’t have high hopes of a 7lb lost, or even a 4lb lost… I was going for a 2lb lost and perhaps some inches (or even 1/2 an inch lost), but most importantly, I really just wanted to get the ball rolling. Like my previous post, getting back into it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The 5 Day Slim Down put me in a great position. I re-read the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan and all the updates and new editions I have. This gave me the opportunity to re learn all the basics and to look up my favorite recipes. I also got back into Pinterest and looked up new recipes to spice things up since I have an amazing opportunity this year of getting to be home for about 90% of my meals!! which provides great variety and opportunity to COOK all my meals and not just pack them into a lunch kit! I’m going to take full advantage of this flexibility due to my teaching assistant position being mostly marking at home, and my scholarship money providing me the opportunity of not having to work an extra job. I’m in a great position to continue with my goals and end 2012 strong and powerful. The reason for me 2lb goal for the 5 Day Slim Down was because I want to get back into losing 2lbs a week. For 4 months I was on an amazing 2lbs a week streak and I hope to get back into that pattern.

I prefer both 5 Day Slim Down and 5 Mile Fat Burning Walk to Leslies 5 Mile Advanced Walk (or is it Advanced 5 Mile Walk?). I dont know if that will be true for everyone, however, but this is what I seem to like better: the presence of a warm-up, more freedom to pick and choose individual miles rather than a few set premixes (especially since I can choose directly from the main menu, not rely on the skip button), more variety in moves, no equipment other than sneakers required (although there were people in the Advanced who did the workout without boosters), and a calmer Leslie. Of the three 5-mile walks Leslie has released so far, Slim Down is my favorite because of its variety, followed by Fat Burning Walk.
