I’ve written a few times on this blog about the scary heart issue that I had toward the end of last year and my subsequent overnight in the hospital emergency room.
I also wrote about the ongoing fight I’ve been forced to face against myself to lose 40 pounds at the recommendation of my cardiologist.
Since I’ve started this journey, I’ve lost 31 pounds total – and I hope to lose the remainder before the summer ends.
While I’ve been going to WeightWatchers to help manage my food intake or input, I’ve also been very conscious about my exercising or outputs.
Everyday since I’ve started this health-improvement journey, I’ve walked at least 30 minutes – often more – achieving an average number of daily steps that are more than 10,000 per day.
I’m convinced that the walking has been the key for me and the success I’ve had thus far.
Here’s an interesting infographic that bears that point.
I know everyone is busy, but I squeeze the daily walk within my lunch hour – if I can do it then anybody can. Also, it doesn’t require a gym membership or anything other than comfortable shoes and your decision to do it.
If you’ve been waiting to move more – start now, no more excuses!
