Daily Update

I found an interesting bit of information in the First Magazine (usually in the checkout lane of the grocery store) about the benefits of walking, and I thought that I would share them with everyone. I knew walking was good for you, but wow it can make a bit difference. The article was sometime in mid-April if I remember correctly. I also have it posted on my fridge to keep me inspired.

"Research suggests that taking a daily stroll can do more than blast-fat-- it's guaranteed to make you healthier, happier, and less stressed. Look at what else walking can deliever:

  • 40% Sounder Sleep
  • 65% More Energy
  • 71% Less Anxiety
  • 88% Better Moods
  • 90% Improved Confidence
  • 166% Increased Libido
  • 200% Sharper Thinking"

Not bad for a daily stroll, ehh?

Well as promised, I have been good today, but boy did I want to be lazy this morning. So here are the stats:

  • Treadmill
  • 3.51 miles
  • 59 minutes
  • 521 calories

Thanks for everyone's support, it will definitely help me stay on the path to thinness!

If anyone wants to join me in this journey, please add your walking stats so we all can celebrate your success!


  1. You go, Girl! So proud of you; you're gonna look absolutely gorgeous when your BIG DAY arrives!!!

  2. What a great post. Stopping by from SITS to leave some bloggy love!

  3. I popped over from SITS and I wanted to say hi!

    Good job with your walking program - I think they have also done studies that say walking is especially great for you because it is easy to do consistently. Congrats! :)

  4. I believe those stats! When I was walking regularly everything seemed to improve. It wasn't just about the few pounds I dropped. I really was in a better mood, sleeping better, had much more energy, etc. I really really REALLY have to get back to walking regularly because I need all those feelings back AND I need these pounds gone! Getting started is the hardest part. It was then and it is now.

  5. Wow..that is fantastic! Good for you. I am so trying to lose seriously keeps finding me...ha ha.
