Secrets of Success

Get Moving!!! Get Your Heart Pumping! At Your Own Pace!



At the beginning, I started with walking to the road with my sis (I was really out of shape) the next day I walked a bit farther... as I got stronger, I added time to my walk... 6 months later, I was going for hour long walks!

Or start off by dancing to music in your living room! Get your heart pumping! Pace yourself!
