For me, walking is free, and the exercise clips from the Fab, Fit, Fun subscription are in easy doses. I just need to actually do more of both. I started today with a short 1.1 mile walk with pup. I have to admit, I was pretty tired when done, showing that I have slacked off my walking lately. I was curious how many calories I burned, just a paltry 106. It's better than adding those calories though, right. The site I was on linked to Verywell.com and an article on walking to lose weight. The goal is to get up to the 60 minute walks, at a brisk pace, for optimal calorie burn and cardiovascular conditioning. Pup and I, including his many pee breaks, probably only walked 20 minutes or so. I'll keep working on this, and perhaps start charting my progress by week on how far I walk, for a goal to reach 10 miles per week by end of summer, and maybe even 15 by end of year. If I do this, I'll add my miles walked to my Feeling Good Friday posts.
