Starting the week off walking for just 20-30 minutes the first day helps me get the motivation to continue to work out the rest of the week. I do my cardio 4-5 days a week all in consecutive days. So say I start on Tuesday, I will walk for about a half hour on my treadmill, alternating faster and slower paces and inclines. Wednesday and Thursday increase my times. By Friday I'm walking for an hour or longer and including some light jogging. Saturday, Sunday and Monday are rest days.
You don't need a treadmill you can do this outside as well. I have small children so being inside on a treadmill is easier to care for my family while I exercise.

When looking at the big picture, we all know that how we finish is more important than where we start. Many successful people started out in life with the odds against them, & came through winners. They didnít let their starting situation determine their final outcome. Think about itÖthis same philosophy can apply to everything we do.
When working towards goals, forget that you may have started out at a disadvantage, met hurdles or made mistakes along the way. Move past the past! Donít get discouraged. Donít blame your past!
Stop looking back & start looking forward. Then, you will move ahead in leaps & bounds.
