10 Day Countdown to Fitness: Day 8

Welcome to Day 8 of our 10 Day Countdown to fitness!

I’m assuming that you have done the previous assignments from the first 7 days of the Countdown. If not, PLEASE go back and do them. They’re essential parts of this whole process. If you are serious about using the 10 days to jump start exercising for weight loss, you will not get the long term results you want and deserve without doing the previous assignments. If you skipped over them, or if this is the first post you’re reading in this 10 day series, you can find Day 1 here.

Starting today, and continuing for at least the next 30 days, I want you to make a commitment with a friend, child, spouse, parent, work colleague, anybody you chose to go out and take a quick walk.  Do this twice a week.  It can be the same person all the time or a different person every time; it doesn’t matter who it is, just that you get out and move with someone.

This should be a fun, relaxing, and gentle stroll, NOT a full-speed-ahead-heart-pumping-sweat-dripping effort.  Take the time to enjoy it!

In addition to helping you lose weight and get fit, you’ll find that this simple activity can help build the relationships you have with people you cherish.

See you tomorrow for Day 9.

    I like to just get out of the house sometimes for a stroll. Even better when I can get my wife to go with me.

    You’re right, walking with friends is good. Don’t know how it is for you guys, but we are having terrible ‘summer’ weather in the UK at the moment.

    I am averaging 8-10 thousand steps a day right now… and boy, it’s a struggle! I found your tip about marching on the spot in front of the TV before sitting down, really hard. I was dead beat after about 5 minutes!

    Hey, Waistloss — I agree, I enjoy walks even more when my wife goes with.

    Karen123 – 8-10 thousands steps kicks butt! It’s amazing how great of a workout you can get just by marching in place. And it’s good for rainy days, too!

    Thanks got stopping by…
