Walk into Spring

I have been looking forward to spring and now that it's officially here, I am excited about starting up my walking program. The winter season has kept us inside, but now is the time to get back to exercising. I enjoy walking because you can pace yourself for a slow or fast walk. A new set of walking shoes would be good so that your feet are comfortable for the impact.

Now that daylight savings time has changed over, it is now staying lighter during the evening hours. This is good because you don't have to hurry because it was getting darker early. Also, makes for no excuses, right! A good morning walk is also a fresh way to start the day.

A walking program can be done right in your neighborhood. Some people think they have to go to the gym or track to get in their walking, but you can lace up your shoes and step right out your front door. One thing I plan to do this year is check with some of my neighbors especially other ladies who may want to join me. I have been approached while walking in my neighborhood from neighbors who say they would like to join me, but they don't. This can be for various reasons, but it would be nice to have a walking partner or two. I am sure the conversation would be plentiful.

I am all about challenges and here is mine to you. Start your walking routine today and I am confident you will not want to miss a day of exercise. Good luck!


  1. I started walking tonight and while I'm not a walker, I will try and give it a go this year since I could really use the exercise.

  2. Great, hope you enjoy the walks. I'm so excited for you!
