Should You Be Looking For A Pretty Simple Way To Slim Down – Here You GoPosted at by ifydcat on category diet
So, you’ve decided it’s the best time you start losing a bit of weight, and that working out frequently would be a good way to start. If you haven’t worked out for some time, or never, you may not know how to get going. It probably seems a bit intimidating. But not to worry, there’s a simple way to exercise once again: walking! You definitely should add walking into your exercise plan if it’s not already there.
There are lots of ways you can fit walking into your everyday schedule. If you have a pet dog then take your pet for a walk around the block for no less than ten minutes. It may only have been ten minutes, but over a week that equals to 70 minutes, which is quite a good deal of walking. If you take your dog for a walk two times a day then that number is multiplied by two. If you don’t live too far away from work try walking there, or at least a portion of the way. Obviously, if you live quite far from, your work, it’s not such a good idea to walk all the way there every day (but feel free to try if you think you can do it!) A 30-minute walk to work is doable, and if you walk to and from work you’ll be walking for an hour every day. If you catch a bus, simply walk to the next bus stop so that you do some more walking in the day. It’s not hard to incorporate walking in your daily life.
If you want to be healthier overall, you can’t lose by walking. Because it’s an aerobic exercise, you’ll burn off calories, which means you’ll get rid of excess weight and it’s also good for your heart. Walking is usually done at a slow pace, so you won’t be putting stress on your joints too much, unlike running. My brother is very thin (but he eats a lot of junk food) and I asked him how he remains lean. He tells me doesn’t know, but he say that he goes for a walk every day. It all made sense when he told me that. Since, for most of us, nothing is more painless than walking, we don’t have a good excuse not to.
Try and get into a routine of walking each day as you’ll have a better chance of sticking to it, and with the right diet, you’ll be able to lose weight quickly. As you become used to walking, you’ll notice that you’re definitely feeling better and, because it’s not that hard on you, your motivation will be enhanced as well. Before you know it, you’ll be looking forward to your regular walks and thinking about going on walks even more. If you feel you can do more – don’t hold yourself back. Try walking faster or, if you’re feeling very confident, you could start jogging. From there, you can progress to more strenuous workouts.
There should be no excuse for you to not go out and walk even a short distance daily. Even if you’re busy you can find 10 minutes to walk around the neighborhood, or if you’re a member of a gym, nip in and do half an hour on the treadmill at a slow pace to start off with.
