Week three: Power Up for PCOS
So, here we are at week three, the week before Christmas! Your schedule is full and there will be things that are going to distract you from fitting in your daily times of exercise and movement - - - but, there is no better time to show your commitment to this Challenge (and yourself) than this coming week!
I have been excited to share with you the form of exercise that has helped me lose 80+ pounds and take charge of my PCOS - - - and it is none other than Leslie Sansone and her Walk at Home videos!
Here is a clip from one of her videos, courtesy of YouTube; take a moment to watch it and see what it's all about. Although you may not have walked a mile in your life, by the end of this video, you will have walked a MILE in the privacy and comfort of your own living room!
Here's our Challenge for this week: get up and try to walk as long as possible with Leslie in this video for the next FIVE days. You don't have to worry about the special steps or following the "choreography" - just MOVE with her as long as possible. You can take it a little bit slower if necessary - or - move your legs while siting in a chair to the beat of the music, but try to see how long you can move with Leslie!
Then, to be eligible for the prizes, please check in with us daily, posting your time spent exercising and what you did, on the Power Up for PCOS page on Facebook! Let us cheer each other on and see how we are each taking steps to POWER UP!
See you on Facebook!
