I read a study today that not only is walking good for the diabetic patient but they did a study say that it helps lower uour chances of Alhiemiers, It said that people who walked at least three days a week, about 1 mile a day, had a 30 percent lower rate than those that don't and that you retainened more for at least a year after you stopped.

Yeah!! that is good news, because I know I am loosing my mind already, now maybe I can keep what I have left. I think it is also good for your soul as you walk, you have quite time to think, pray, sing, or just make up stories in your head. I find it relaxing as long as I don't let the negative nancies get in.

Walking is my favorite exwecise.
I always did at least three miles a day before the foot trouble and I felt so energized. I am not going to rest until I can do it again,with Gods help.

This is good to know and I love to walk for my excercise. I usually walk 30 minutes twice a day for my exercise run which I have decided to increase up to 60 minutes twice a day.
