Many of us have been told if we just loose some weight our numbers will be better. That may or may not be totally true, but being healthy is a goal and overall health trumps specifics for me anyway. I choose to walk and I found this article on how I can improve my walking to work better for me. http://www.everydayhealth.com/fitness/workout...
Here is an excerpt from the article.
" How to Start Your Walking Workout
The speed and distance of your walking workout are not as important as the time you spend walking at a brisk pace. If you have any health issues talk to your doctor first and find out what is a safe pace for you. Start gradually and walk only as far and as long as is comfortable. Follow these fitness walking guidelines:
Work up to at least 30 minutes of brisk walking a day.
Warm up by walking at your normal pace for about 5 minutes and then pick up the pace for about 15 minutes.
While you walk, swing your arms and maintain good posture.
Take long strides, but don't strain yourself.
Slow down at the end of your walk and do some gentle stretching.
Every week you should try to add about 5 more minutes to the brisk part of your walking workout until you can get it to over 30 minutes. "
The point is to get moving. I am adding the 45 day challenge workouts to my daily walks. I am looking forward to getting more results.
