I THINK I WILL TAKE A WALK TODAY


As most of you know, I have recently started walking every morning. I had several reasons for making this decision. The primary one was my health. I want to become healthier and live a new and improved lifestyle. 

My concern is injury. With so many factors to consider I had many questions about how much, how often, what shoes to wear, what time of the day to walk and so on and so on. That is when I decided to do some research, I thought I might share what I discovered:




HOW TO START WALKING

1.Start out slow and easy. What I mean is start off with slow, short sessions and build your way up
2.Be sure to drink plenty of water before, during, and after walking.
3.Watch your posture. Walk tall.

WHAT WALKING SHOE IS BEST FOR ME?

1.Lightweight
2.Low heel
3.Comfortable
4.Breathable Fabric

HOW MANY CALORIES ARE BURNED WALKING ONE MILE?

This will vary depending on the individual and the speed walked. An average is appx. 100 calories per mile.

WHAT IS A GOOD WALKING PACE?

An average fitness walking pace is close to a 15 minute mile. But, a good pace will vary depending on your fitness level and your walking technique.

Remember these are just some suggestions that are working for me and I am sharing them hoping that they may also be beneficial for you as you take that next step into WALKING FOR YOUR HEALTH.




If you have any health concerns or medical conditions, be sure to check with your doctor for advice before you begin any routine.


 God Bless you all.

  2. @Jennifer...I should be the poster girl for sitting on the couch. My weight was out of control and so was I. I started walking to try to lose weight. (I have not lost any weight by the way)..BUT instead my morning walk gives me time to be alone thinking and reflecting...Its my time to be with God. So get started today Jennifer....YOU CAN DO IT!

    I do believe that I have actually GAINED WEIGHT!! Even with all of my walking I have noticed that My legs are getting bigger and toned. Muscles(smile) I have also discovered that my wasit is getting smaller. This to me is more of a benefit because the bulk of the weight that I want to lose is all targeted at my stomach. Its a slow process but I am quite happy so far with the results. the walking is great fun. Thank you for reading my story and leaving such a good question. God Bless.
