My New Motto

I came up with a new motto to motivate me to walk longer and faster. Here it is: Walk Like You Mean It Lady! So far it is working pretty well. I have done 30 minutes in the early morning and 16 minutes just before lunch. And now I am on my way to put my new motto in practice. I still have to walk for another 14 minutes and then I will be pretty proud of myself. Did you walk today?

I did in the store this morning. Wherever you do it, it's good exercise. I like to park a little bit away from the door most of the time so I have further to walk.

Every step that we take is giving us more energy. Wherever it happens to be.

@TiaraOceanView, No, you are not a loser, it's not because I am in the mood to walk that you have to feel the same. We all have our moments.

Like you I walk every day. It's necessary after my pelvis and hip fractures last year.

I feel so bad that you had this happened to you last year. It must have been so painful.

I haven't been able to walk a lot for a while, but I hope my husband and I can start back when his legs get better. Keep up the good work!

No, I was on my feet quite a bit yesterday, so took a break today. But it sounds like you did a lot of walking-way to go!

I love walking, and I walk every day! Not only is it good exercise, but it also helps you relax and unwind. I will do a lot of walking in the morning before work (when it's nice and cool out), and then do more walking in the evening around sunset. I used to be an avid runner, but all that running in my younger days is starting to take its toll on my knees now, so I don't do as much running as I used to. Walking is so much easier on my knees (as is swimming)

Hello @moffittc, Totally agree with you on this one. Walking has tons of benefits not only for the body but for the mind too. I used to jog a little too before, but those days are over unfortunately.

@marlina What killed my knees were the many years of competitive basketball that I played in high school and college. It's such a shame, because running was one of my favorite pastimes! It was so therapeutic for me! But now I enjoy walking, and I can take the time to see and enjoy everything around me more!

@moffittjc I loved the "high" I got when I was jogging. Missing that a lot.

I don't because I need knee surgery. When I get it I will be walking again. I do an hour of water aerobics daily and love being able to move pain free.

I walk around and around inside my house in the air conditioning. I lie your motto. Every little bit of self encouragement helps.

I'm always at work and mostly on my feet the whole day so when I get home I like to relax.
