Have you walked a bit now before you slumped in front of your monitor? No? As I've said in my the other post, for busy and non-athletic persons, walking might be the best exercise for you. For most people, walking 10,000 steps a day is enough for fitness and weight loss. Just how "much" is 10,000 steps? Roughly, 10,000 steps is equal to about 5 miles or 3 km. Now, now, don't get over excited and say "How can I possibly walk 5 miles a day?" For the next hour or so, monitor how many steps you've taken. If you're like me,(slumped in front of the monitor) the answer would be "none". I know it's not possible to log in 10,000 steps a day just doing your normal job. However, if you have an active job such as a waitress or a nurse, 10,000 steps a day is peanuts. Most people achieve the 10,000 steps a day by adding brisk walking or jogging into their routine. If you can't integrate the additional steps into your normal routine, maybe it's time you switch jobs (nursing or waitressing). Remember, 2,000-2,500 steps is equal to a mile. Walking a mile burns 100 calories for a 150 lbs. person. What are you waiting for? Put on your walking shoes!
