Walk more every day to help control weight gain. It will also make getting fit and staying fit much easier. You don’t have to wait until “your workout” to exercise.
Keep your walking/running shoes with you. Walk as much as possible during the day. Take advantage of every opportunity to walk. This one tip should be used all the time. It makes a huge difference in your fitness and helps you have an active lifestyle.
When I used to work on The University of Texas campus, it was not unusual for me to walk up to 2 hours in a day going to different departments. And, there are many hills here, so that made the exercise that much better. I didn’t think of it as exercise until I stopped working on campus. I soon realized that I had to take more time for “exercise” because I wasn’t walking as much during the day!
Don’t make the mistake of laying around as much as possible until your workout. Research proves that your fat-burning enzymes SHUT DOWN when you SIT DOWN! Keep your metabolism ramped up all day and burn more calories.
Walking helps you lose the weight and keep it off. Weight loss management is a simple process—if you do it day in and day out. Its a process like any goal you are trying to reach. You don’t reach your weight loss and fat loss goals overnight. And, you didn’t gain that weight overnight—it was a process too.
And just a few words about nutrition—if you want fat loss, weight loss and a lean and toned body then you MUST eat for fat loss! Everyone needs a healthy meal plan. You need to have some sort of idea of what you are going to eat for the day. If you don’t have a meal plan, you might eat anything at any time. If you have a plan, you are more likely to follow it or at least eat similar foods. And, record what you eat in a food journal until you get good at knowing how much and what to eat.
Walk at least 30 minutes every day.
