    Prior to starting any form of exercise, be sure to set a goal. If your goal is as simple as “I am going to start walking to get active and be healthy” then that is a wonderful goal! If we do not set ourselves up for success then we will fail.

    Some tips:

    • Start and walking log and walking calendar. These will allow you to log you steps/miles and track/monitor your progress
    • Have comfortable walking shoes
    • Stretch before and after
    • Stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the day
    • Eat well balanced meals to keep energy levels up

    HAVE FUN!!
