Never heard of it. Is it a real word? And what the hell does it mean anyway?
OK. Let me tell you a little about how I came up with the word ZumeWalk. The word, Zume, is more about a feeling than it is about a literal word. It's the feeling you get when you complete a great walk or better yet a month of walks. You're "zooming". A good example is how you feel zooming in your car with the sun roof open or the top down on a beautiful sunny Friday. The music is blasting a favorite song and you're singing at the top of your lungs. And you don't care what the world thinks.
So what is ZumeWalking?
It's daily walking routine and building foundation of fitness - step by step. Zumewalking is a personal exercise journey created by each of us and accomplished by walking consistently.
What better way to take a journey than with friends, family or the people who have similar goals. Whether online or next door they can share in our journey and we in theirs. Sharing with those who are chasing the same goal - a fit life. Raising money, sharing ideas and resources. One of my main goals is to raise money by having a one day walk, nationwide, raising money for a charity...

Walking Away the Stress
OK, I've figured it out. I've been walking a little less each month for the last three months because of a busy work schedule. My monthly average dropped to around 75 miles per month but more importantly my days per week of walking fell off a cliff - 3 per week. This does not work for me! 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....
Easy Walking for Losing Weight
The greatest thing about walking, you can do it everyday. I walk six days and week but truthfully every once in a while, I miss a day but I'm only human and so are you - go a little easy on yourself. Take the time to build up a walking routine slowly over a year and then it's much easier to keep it going for life.
The thing that keeps me going is not wanting to gain the weight back again and my music. I love to get the iPod and set on my favorite playlist and out the door I zoom, walking off the days stress and letting my mind work on some creative work the marketing...
