Fitness Friday-Walking

This year, Jenny Craig is commemorating 30 years of changing lives. As a proud national sponsor of the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Heart Walks for the second year, Jenny Craig is encouraging Americans to commit to walking at least 30 minutes a day to help maintain a healthier weight at Heart Walks across America. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. and according to the AHA, walking is a simple positive change you can make to potentially improve your overall health.
Below are some easy tips from Jenny Craig on how to fit 30 minutes of walking into your day:
1. At Work: In the morning, park 10 minutes away from your office and walk briskly. At lunch, walk 10 minutes in or around your office. In the afternoon/evening, walk briskly 10 minutes back to your vehicle.
2. At Home: Start your day by taking a 10 minute stroll through your neighborhood. In the afternoon, walk in place for 10 minutes as you watch your favorite show. After dinner, gather the whole family and take a 10 minute walk around the block.
3. On the Weekend: Take a 10 minute walk to your local farmers market and load up of fresh fruits and vegetables for the week, followed by a 10 minute walk home. Later in the afternoon, call your best friend to catch up and walk around the house for 10 minutes instead of sitting on the couch.

In commemoration of its 30 years, Jenny Craig launched the “Jenny Hearts You” campaign to celebrate activity and honor those who have achieved their weight loss goals on the program. Share your healthy living commitment for the next 30 days and ensure to tag Jenny Craig on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest.

I take a lot of walks in my neighborhood and it helps me maintain my weight and stay healthy. My grandsons love joining me and making it a family event.

That is great ladies. We do walks in the afternoons after dinner. it helps our food go down. We catch up on what went on with the day and we are together as a family enjoying the outdoors. Plus maybe a pitt stop at the park too.
