Your doctor is absolutely your best resource. See them before you start your walking journey.
Tell them exactly what your doing and how you plan to do it. I know that they'll love the idea of you starting a program of walking. And that the best idea is to start slowly but most importantly get started right after your appointment. That very same day.
Listen to everything your doctor has to say because they have seen it all. And they have years of incredible experience working with individuals designing fitness and nutritional programs that really work.
I know that my doctor is awesome...

I've got to be out there walking five to six days per week or it show up in my daily life in other ways, not just at the waist line.
How does it show up in my life, you ask?
Well it show up it not ridding my life and body of stress and it shows up in not clearing my mind each day....
Twitter and a gentle word of motivation. In fact, gentle as a feather.
How about a gentle and encouraging "tweet"?
You know those times, when you don't want to workout? How about a bit of encouragement? Might be nice to hear a "tweet" that lifts you up and gets you going. I thought Twitter would be perfect. Here's how it works:
If you find yourself having one of those days when you just can't get going and need a gentle push. Drop me a short but sweet ZumeTweet and I'll drop you a word of encouragement in return. All "tweets" will be as gentle as a feather, positive and uplifting, something...
