October Weight Loss Challenge: Day 3 Walking
Welcome to Day 3 of the October Weight Loss Challenge!
Are you a walker?
Do you enjoy walking?
Have you ever used walking as a form of exercise?
Will you walk today? How far and/or how long?
A routine of brisk walking has been proven to have the same effects as more strenuous exercise such as jogging or running. Walking also has many good health and weight loss benefits such as:
- Lowering 'bad' cholesterol
- Raising 'good' cholesterol
- Reduces the risk/or manages type 2 diabetes
- Manages your weight
- Helps you to stay fit
Make walking comfortable by maintaining good posture. Keep your head up with your eyes forward, shoulders back and relaxed. Remember to tighten your abs and buttocks as well. If you have a pedometer, use it to track your steps/distance.
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, anyone can effectively and safely lose weight by walking.
