It was December 2006 when I decided to walk every day.
Day one, I made it down to the corner and back, ug, I was so out of shape…
Day two-five it got a bit easier each day…
I got my first pedometer to measure my waking, it is a good idea to use one to keep track…
Over the course of 60 days, by increasing the time I was walking, I worked by way up to sixty minutes…
Now I do not walk all that fast but with the little pedometer it keeps track of the aerobic steps and calculates the distance and the calories burned.
My old meter keeps only 7 days records (better ones keep over a month and will upload to computer) .
The last week in miles:
And In steps:
Some of the ‘hidden’ benefits I have noticed:
- I no longer suffer from any back or hip pain.
- I have WAY more stamina for all activities.
- My last RV trip to visit my parents I had no ‘road’ pains (two days on the road) (totaled 2300 miles) .
- I walked for 10 minutes at every rest stop and actually did more steps while on the trip.
And I have met all kinds of interesting people while waking, that I wave to and say hi:
- Alex (yard full of stone and cactus), his mom was a docent in a cactus place in New Mexico when he was a kid.
- Sue, with a vegetable garden in the front yard.
- Paul, who runs a ‘garage’ sale every month…
Just to name a few.
So my message to you is to start with a 1 minute walk today and over the next sixty day, build up to an hour each day, you will enjoy better health. I guarantee, with a 100% money back (well I would if I was being paid to write this)
