The 30 Day Walking Challenge: 30 Days to 10,000 Steps
Tell me if this sounds familiar? We say we are going to get the body right for swimsuit season. So we go out and get a gym membership, put the payments on automatic, keep up with the unhealthy habits, and every time we pass the gym we say tomorrow. Then swimsuit season rolls around and we never even got started.
millennial moms the list of things we have to do never ends - from playing the role of mommy and homemaker, to doctor and counselor, to personal shopper and financial planner, to chef and nutritionist. We take care of everyone constantly saying no to ourselves. And before we know it we have gained a few extra pounds here and there. OK, OK! A lot of pounds!
I know my body isn’t what it used to be. And while I know I wouldn’t fit into that size 2 dress again, who says I can’t walk my way into a healthier happier lifestyle. In an effort to get my fitness back on track, I have been incorporating some activities with the little one. In fact, I have been adding some walking into my days, as the first steps [no pun intended] to improving my health.
Walking is the simplest yet most effective form of exercise. Not only can you walk off weight, but you can also reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and many other health conditions.
