Why not start walking your weight off?
The utmost battle for any working mother is the obstruction of having time in their day to exercise.
For a stay-at-home mom, it can be even extra tricky because children will regularly go along with the adventure, which means a plethora of distractions.
One of the most effective forms of exercise is walking, which is also an easy exercise program to start with because you are able to set your own goals and limitations as you get on with your new fitness exploit. People might try to persuade you to join your local gym, but walking for exercise allows you the capability and flexibility to exercise anywhere and anytime you want.

Even though an open schedule is good, when you are starting out it is important to schedule your walks. Pick out a set schedule for 3 weeks and write it on your calendar and plan everything else around your walking schedule. The reason is you will find it easy to break exercise commitments because you put someone else’s needs before your own.
For 3 weeks, put your overall health and wellbeing first.
Start slow. It is also a good idea to start with two 10 minute brisk walks before plummeting into a full twenty-minute power-walk. Unless you are extremely overweight and or have health problems, you should be able to start your walking program with the two daily exercise sessions and do these 5 days a week. I highly recommend you take a couple of days off a week so you do not get burnt out.
Start your walking program on a Monday. If you really want to improve your health, then also change your eating and sleeping habits too. By eating right and getting a good night’s rest every night you will see dramatic improvements in not only your health but also your overall feeling.
You can accomplish so much more if you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle while taking on a life-changing and possibly life-saving walking program.
Walking the weight off may be just what the doctor ordered, but please be sure and ask your doctor before you start this or any exercise program. In particular, if you are twenty pounds or more overweight and haven’t been actively involved in any other exercise program.
