Track your mileage and routes: see how far you have walked

I use the milage tracker to keep track of my walks with the girls (my dogs) I can map the route and have a weekly and yearly total of how far I walked. It is cool to come home and track the walk, guess how far we went, seeing that by going down that street I added this much.

Consistency

I have a difficult time keeping up my eating habits as well as my exercise routines. When I keep up on them every single day, I have no problems, but it one time I miss because of illness, or traveling, or daily life gets in the way, I lose my drive and I do not stay consistent.

Bored with just walking?

Change up your routine by going barefoot! Start slow and easy and just enjoy the sensations of being in touch with everything around you.

An injury doesnt have to stop you...

After pulling a muscle in my leg I though I would have to stop exercise until it was better. However I have found that although I can't run, there are still so many more exercises I CAN do!

Shoes need 24 hours to completely vent, air out and dry. Save yourself sweat, and potential fungus issues by slipping into dry shoes!

10,000 Steps

I find that wearing a pedometer all the time the best way to get in my 10,000 steps. I find myself parking far away, walking while talking on the phone, taking things to co-workers rather than dropping it in the mail. It all adds up to extra steps and extra calories burned.
