I had forgotten how much I used to enjoy walking. I used to walk everywhere, just because I could. I purposely parked in the most inconvenient parking deck on campus the other day, and walked everywhere, just enjoying the beautiful day. Rediscover the joy of walking!
The more weight I gained, the less I walked because walking started to cause an unbearable amount of pain in my right heel. I used to think it was a heel spur, but I've discovered that the pain becomes more bearable (and occurs less often) the more weight I lose!
chose a cause that is close to your heart....mine is breast cancer. I spend the year in training in order to be ready for the Susan G Komen 3 day walk. 60 miles in 3 days. Sounds overwhelming, but one step at a time helps a good cause and keeps me walking toward a healthier life!
