I hate walking in the heat and humidity, and mall walking is okay, but I really feel more motivated if I can walk outdoors.
My husband and I found a solution. There's a local nature center that has a path through the woods. Not only is it shaded back there, but I find that walking on the natural materials is sooo much easier on my feet than the asphalt or cement in my neighborhood or the hard floors in the mall.
Guess I just lost my last excuse to avoid exercise! Carol

Ask your doctor if getting off the couch is right for you.
I started walking this week. Having a goal to work towards and walking with a friend to kept me accountable while making the week fun. We are supposed to get rain this week so perhaps we will be mall walking to reach the goals of week 2.
