For some people, walking is the best exercise you can ever do. For one, you can do it even with bad knees, etc. as it is low impact. Another, you can do it in any shoes you can do it anywhere, and you can do it all day. If you want to walk ten pounds of weight off this month, consider doing the following three things:
1. Vary your walking workouts.
2. Walk consistently.
3. Combine walking with exercise.
Vary your walking workouts because it won’t be boring, it will help you work out different parts of the body, and it will give your metabolism a boost in order to help you burn more calories. If you intend to walk ten pounds off this month, try doing one of your walking workouts on a hilly trail each week. You should focus on a variety of inclines. If you are doing your walking on a treadmill then use one with an incline feature so that you can get some variety in your workout. Next, focus on doing some interval workouts. This is where you vary the speed for set amounts of time in order to build up endurance for fast walking. It is a great way to make your heart stronger while shedding pounds.
Walking is safe for all people at all ages.
Next, you need to do your walking workout consistently if you want to shed ten pounds this month. Sometimes people want to lose weight, but they do not commit to it enough to actually do it. So, if you want it to work, go at the same time everyday. Make it a part of your regular schedule so that it is natural for you to just go for your walk. In addition, find someone to walk with you, as this will help you get out the door on a regular basis so you don’t let someone else down.
Next, if you want to walk off ten pounds this month, you should combine your walking with healthy eating. Too many people who start doing regular workouts will up their caloric intake, which means that they just re-eat the calories they burn. If you want to lose ten pounds, be sure to cut out things like soda, desserts, and junk food, and u your intake of fresh foods. You will also want to make sure that you stay hydrated. This is an essential part of successfully losing weight by walking.
Lastly, just make it your focus to walk more, do the little things that can add several more steps to your day, like parking further away from the door at your work, or taking the stairs instead of an elevator, or walking to places that are close by rather than driving. Make and effort to walk more, in addition to your daily walking workout.
