Is it work for you to get yourself walking? Sometimes, it is for me - and I'm a dedicated, daily walker! There are just days when getting moving is more difficult than others.
One variable I have discovered is the weather. If it's a beautiful, sunny, low humidity day, I am encouraged to get outside. I want to get moving, to enjoy the perfection of nature - especially in the Spring when everything is green and budding out. Rain, grayness, and ice are downers. Having to drive to the mall is not my favorite thing to do, but it keeps me moving, so I go. Having to ride the stationary bike or walk in place are have-tos rather than want-tos. But, they keep me moving.
This week, the weather has been so inviting that I've walked twice some days! Today, I waked a total of more than 5 miles. I walked 3 at the mall with a friend this morning (her preference is the mall) then this evening, since my dance class was cancelled, I walked outside with another friend for more than 2 more miles. The park was beautiful, the weather was wonderful with a light breeze and low humidity, and the timing was good - after dinner.
I know this weather can't last - more rain is predicted. But, if I could freeze a 'perfect walking day' in time, this would be the one!
Remember my 100% GUARANTEE. Should you decide to stop walking and resume your old habits, I personally guarantee that you'll get back 100% of your former life - your pain, your lifestyle, your attitude. You can trust the information you find here. It's from a dedicated walker. Trust me and your life will get better! I promise.
