Good morning my name is Velvet and I want to walk for starters at least a 1.5 miles a day and increase as time progresses.

Thanks all for the warm welcome!
Yesterday I didn't do any 'formal' walking but I was on my feet standing/walking/up and down stairs all afternoon while dismantling and packing our Christmas tree and village (takes up half of my livingroom), rearranging and spring cleaning our livingroom, making homemade (from scratch) bread and rolls. Oh, and frequent trips up/down stairs trying to scrub/soak labels off of old wine bottles to get them ready for a batch of homemade wine.

Welcome. Walking is a great form of exercise. It is something you can do all you life, almost anywhere.

Hi and welcome to the team emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

That's why I like walking too. It's better for your joints, it's free, well I do most of my walking on the treadmill but that was free, the people we got it from said it was taking up too much space!

Walking is something I can do indoors or out, and is safer than jogging or static sports for my joints.
My goal is to walk 30 minutes per day in addition to my daily yoga routines.
Glad to find a team like this!
