How to Walk Your Way Thin

How to Walk Your Way Thin

Walking is an easy way to lose weight.

Walking is one of the easiest and best exercises that you can do for your body. It is low impact, you can go at your own pace and it gives you the cardio workout that your body needs. Even if you are out of shape you can start out walking for a short period of time and increase your walking workout over time.

NO EXCUSES - Stop giving yourself excuses to not exercise and start today, right now. Even if you do not have a place to walk, you can walk in your own home. Do laps around your living room if you have to. If your home has stairs, you can really beef up your workout routine by walking up and down the stairs in the middle of your walk. Add in as many stairs climbs as you can handle.

Walk around your own neighborhood. Your neighborhood is one of the best places for you to walk because you can walk whenever you have time. Make time after meals especially if they are heavy meals.

Walk around your work place. If you must walk around the parking lot make sure you are safe and always watching out for cars.

PEDOMETER - Buy yourself a pedometer. They are very affordable and worth it. Track your steps every day. Try to walk at least 10,000 steps per day. It is a lofty goal and one that you will not reach naturally on your own without tracking your progress. Buy a pedometer and wear it all day every day. If you are not reaching the 10,000 step goal, then increase your walking each day until you reach your goal of walking 10,000 steps per day.

GET A BUDDY - Find a friend to walk with you each day. It is good for their health also. Having a buddy will help to pass the time and keep you on track walking each day. It is easy to make excuses to yourself, but it is more difficult to make excuses to your friends.

When you cannot find a buddy, try wearing an ipod or mp3 player to help pass the time while you walk yourself thin.
