I know I have been walking for exercise, but I have not actually fully committed to walking a certain distance every day. Life is busy and it is easy not to make time for something like exercise. But if I want my diet to truly be successful and be in good shape when I am done, I need to exercise more.
I downloaded an app that a friend of mine told me about. It’s called Zero to 5K. It’s a running app. Let’s be clear, I have no intention of running. I hate running, always have. But I will use it to improve my walking and actually walk for exercise and not just take a leisurely stroll.
Today, I am going to walk for 25 minutes. There is a 5 minute warm up, 15 minutes of walking, and a 5 minute cool down. That’s what the app says anyway. What it boils down to is 25 minutes of walking. I am going to do the walking during my lunch. I have my writer’s group tonight and will not have time for a walk after work, so lunch time is the only time during the day I can make this work today.
Once I actually have time and money at the same time, I will join a gym. I can get a discount a Gold’s gym because my niece works there, but I am going to price around and see what kind of deal I can get.
I also need to upgrade my walking shoes. I am thinking of purple New Balance.
