If you are exiting winter a little heavier than you entered it, welcome to the club!
There are many things that contribute to winter weight gain: holiday parties, shorter and darker days, less time spent outdoors, and hectic schedules.
Chances are, as you shed your winter clothes you’ll also want to shed some winter pounds.
Just about anyone can walk off excess weight.
Walking is easy, doesn’t require any skill or special equipment, and can be done just about anywhere!
Here’s what you need to do to get your walking program underway:
See your doctor.
Before you begin any exercise program, make sure that your doctor assesses your health and approves the activity.
Buy a good pair of walking shoes.
There are shoes made specifically for walking.
Try shoes on before buying, and make sure they fit well and are comfortable.
If your shoes aren’t comfy, you won’t stick to your program!
Find a buddy to walk with.
When you work out with someone else, you are accountable to him or her as well as to yourself.
Chatting while you walk also makes the time go by more quickly.
Set some goals.
Walk for a specific time each day, or for a specific distance.
Give us a call to enjoy your massage therapy.
We can make sure that your body is in the best shape possible to take on its new walking routine, and also have the knowledge to counsel you on weight loss.
