#Walk it off! Studies from both the University of South Carolina and University of Tennessee showed that people who walk fewer than 5,000 steps per day were heavier than those who walked at least 9,000 steps; and those who upped their movement to 10,000 steps per day were linked to having a higher (good) HDL, lower blood pressure, stabilized blood sugar, lower weight and less body fat.
The good news is that you are more than likely already half way there! You are likely to be walking 5,000 steps per day just by running errands, doing errands, or going to and from work!
Pedometers are inexpensive, easy to use and can be a great reminder for you to move it, move it, walk it off!

Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it … but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill … Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right. ~ Soren Kierkegaard
There comes . . . a longing never to travel again except on foot. ~ Wendell Berry

‘Walk,’ Joy replied. ~ William Henry Davies

He could tell by the way animals walked that they were keeping time to some kind of music. Maybe it was the song in their own hearts that they walked to. ~ Laura Adams Armer
