Many people believe weight gain and loss of fitness are a given part of the aging process. We’re here to tell you that’s not so. So what’s the first thing on your to-do list?  Ditch the mindset that it’s “too late” for you to change your lifestyle, your health, and your well-being.  Next? Get going! Here are some simple tips to get you started:
Walking
Many people disregard the benefits of walking, but recent studies show that regular walks can help reduce blood pressure, keep your cholesterol level in check, burn calories (even in small amounts) and helps you maintain an ideal weight.  A brisk walk will have you burning upwards of 100 calories per mile. Most can cover a mile in 15 to 20 minutes, and it can be done anywhere, so no excuses. Everyone can find 15 to 20 minutes somewhere in their day. Find it twice, and you’ve done away with 200 calories! Small steps add up quickly. Start by timing one mile. Each time you walk that route, try to go a little bit further in the same amount of time…the faster the walk, the more calories you burn, the more you are improving your cardiovascular health. Challenge yourself and you’ll find some fun, some stress relief, and a ton of health benefits that can help you get and stay fit at any age.
