Swollen Fingers on your long walk?

In training for a marathon walk, I learned that walking w/your arms swinging at your sides causes the swollen fingers. Proper form has the forearm at a 90 degree angle (like a runner) which prevents the swelling. If this is hard, hold a string or stick between your hands to help keep hands up.

Don't focus on the numbers!

Set goals that don't focus on the scale or your clothing size. Sign up for a race or other event that is challenging but doable with proper training. Then train for it. The results are amazing!

Positive Daily Outcomes

I have a daily goal: "Envision positive outcomes for the day." Whenever I catch myself rolling my eyes or thinking negatively, I pull that goal out of the back of my mind and focus on changing my perspective on whatever it is I'm feeling negative about.
