At one time in our life, we all have said we are going on a diet. We have good intents sometimes, but we have an inner source that holds us back. We often make excuses to avoid walking to fitness.

The weather outside is one of the excuses we may use to avoid improving our health. The weather should never stop us however, since we have many alternatives when it comes to walking fitness.

We may say, ìIíve had a bad day at work,î so we do not do what we are supposed to do. Then we just stop all together. Whatís the purpose?

Some of us say, ìI donít have the energy.î This is an excuse, which keeps your energy down. When you walk or exercise it boosts energy and even if you feel fatigue before you walk, you will feel energized when you done if you walk.

We are all guilty of it. Especially around the holidays, we may say, after Christmas I plan to make my New Years Resolution to take action, but it does not happen. We start out with those good intentions, yet the intentions we have fall into the dark chambers of our mind. We need to take steps on how to make it happen as well as doing what is right for your health.

How walking helps you:
Walking is very good for you and your health. If you plan to walk each day, you cut back your chances of disease. Walking will help you to breath easier; help keep you from having strokes as well as heart attacks. In addition, walking helps to tone those muscles, strengthening them so that the joints are flexible, which cuts back the risks of arthritic conditions?

Walking is one of the best ways to exercise. Studies show that walking is better than running, jogging and so on.

How do I start to walk?
At first, you do not want to walk fast. Walking fast may cause pain. Starting out, you want to walk slowly to reduce risks of pulling muscles. Strained muscles and joints cause aches and pain. If you hurt yourself by walking fast at first it could discourage you from wanting to walk again. You lose interest.

Beginners should take time to build up walking skills. The excuses should be checked so that you can maintain a schedule. Start slow and work up to walking several times each week. Start walking 3 or four days each week and gradually work up to five or six.

Here are some things that you might want to know when walking?
Safety is the first thing you want to consider when walking to fitness. You should take the time to learn what you should wear, especially when walking at night. Avoid wearing dark clothing while walking at night. Wear clothing reflectors to help oncoming traffic avoid hitting you. Wear proper shoes that support your feet and provide you comfort while walking to fitness. If you walk at night, try to avoid walking alone. Take a friend, family member of your pet.

If you donít want to walk at night or if you live in the wrong part of town you can always get a treadmill. This will help keep you safe as well as make it comfortable for you for this reason you can walk in the comforts of your home and do what you want, like watch TV. In addition, a treadmill will help you to keep track of your heart rate, pulse, how many calories you burn, as well as your distance you walk.
