Have you considered a walking plan to help you lose weight and get fit? According to the CDC, adults ages 18 to 64 should get at least two and a half hours of moderate activity, such as brisk walking, every week, as well as muscle strengthening activity at least twice per week.
It is not easy to start a fitness regimen. It took me years to find a routine that worked best for me and my lifestyle. I make an effort to walk at least 30 minutes day, usually with my sidekick and favorite dog, Leonard. It has helped me lose weight, and I believe it helps with mental wellness. If it is okay with your doctor, I encourage you to walk at least five days per week and consider some strength training like push-ups or lunges a couple of times a week. If you need to work your way up to walking a couple of miles a day, this simple plan can help you get there in just a few months no matter your size or fitness level.
