Walking Towards Good Health

You have decided you want to get in shape but you have gained some weight, have some sore areas on your body like knees, hip, ankles, feet, and you know running would not be your best option. You are told walking helps improve your heart conditioning, will help strengthen your bones, can help you burn calories (walking burns on the average 80-100 a mile depending on your size and pace), improve your mood and it is free (outside of purchasing a good shoe).

The research stresses 10,000 steps a day is the goal for good health. You can get a pedometer (click here) clip it on your waist band and start moving. It will track what you do each day and becomes an easy way to monitor your output. You can quickly see in the day to day of life if you do not add a walk you may not get much more than 3000 steps a day. Park as far as you can in parking lots, run errands and walk as much as you can to and from the store and then within the store. I would be like forgetting things on purpose to move you from one side to the other.

There are also other tools like FitBot that can help you track your output, calories etc. or apps for your phone where you can log things. Whatever you like to do to monitor your output is helpful. Just do something so you have a way to know if you are reaching your goal.

Move at least 4-5 days a week for at least 30 minutes a day you will move forward in your health. Only 3 times a week will hold you where you are and not really trigger the body to start shifting.
