I recently signed up to participate in the “Get Fit” initiative offered by my employer. The goal is to walk a mere 500,000 steps by June 2012. When you sign up you are provided a step counter ( kinda of clicker thing) which you attached to your shoe and then you are encouraged to get-to-stepping. I tend to walk a lot but with the program or even a partner you can really stick to accomplishing your goals. A little walking can take you a long way.
The Mayo Clinic says that walking can help you: lower bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, trim your waistline, and improve your mood. Check out the article form Hello Beautiful on how to get started with a plan of action.
