Leave a Comment Return to Article
    i walk my little baby dachshund Lily about 3 times a week, i don't know if this counts as a walking exercise, it fills like a workout when i am done. Everyone needs to add walking as a part of weight loss. Among other workouts.
  • For the beginner, I think it's good one.

    Good plan to follow. I'm walking already, yet need to account for my work outs.

  • Hi all. I am going to start walking. I need to talk with my physical therapy person and Dr.I have spinal arthritis.
    Fantstic program .For many years I Nordic power walk 4 to 6 miles daily 365 days a year and enjoy the challenge of all weather conditions. The outdoors is my medication for the day. Then I indoor row for 10 km ,aiming for 5 million metres..Would like to encourage people in appreciating life with actiyity ,a smile and wellness.
    Thanks Jen. Great article, great help, especially the RPE method. I'm sure your other readers would gain something from this too.
  • This plan is definitely doable. I'm starting right away.
    Walking with intention is always a good exercise. I continue to wish that Spark People would allow you to record intensity of a work out - calories really vary.

    I have been back and forth with getting into moving like I should and this article was a good foundation to follow. My only question is what do you recommend for warming up and for cooling down?
  • I've dreaded any kind of exercise for so long but actually look forward to starting this tomorrow! I have chronic back and hip pain due to an extremely stubborn spondylo, but I thinkpart of my problem is that I haven't exercised in so long - "use it or lose it". I'm 69 and need to lose 132 lb, so I'm here for the long run (and there's a laugh for you)! Anyway, I am truly inspired by this article. Thank you!

    Great article. It will be a drag to start during winter but there's no better time to start than the present.
