I saw this video on Life After Money. It is a little bit long but was very well presented. I don't make many recommendations but I do recommend watching this video.
There is also a corresponding web site Everybody Walk.org. I haven't researched all of the articles yet but I am going to give them a good read over.
I know that walking is something I can still do and it is free. I don't mind walking Buddy each day (well almost each day) but just thinking about a walk for the purpose of health kind of leaves me cold.
I've heard some exercising hobbyists say they hate it but they have to do it for various reasons like health or stress. However, I think the majority of people who have good movement in their daily life are people who were born with an advanced walking gene.
My mother could out walk me - longer and faster - until her dying day. But ask her to cut the grass or work in the flower bed. No. Not her kind of exercise.
I guess it boils down to - whether you like it or not - we need to walk. The video suggests two 15 minute walks if you can't find the time for a 30 minute walk. I also read a suggestion recently that a walk around the block every two hours will keep you in good shape. Either one of these plans sound doable to me but I'm lazy I guess.
It is going to take a real effort on my part to implement this type of dedicated walking plan. For heaven's sake, I'm retired. I need to invest in my own health. I need to do this.
I'll report back.
