This week I started a new project. I am now a Walking Instructor and have partnered up with the company Humana by reaching out to the inactive and promoting better health by starting a walking program. What has attracted me to this opportunity is that Humana offers this to everybody, member of their company or not. The participants receive really nice step counters that can be uploaded to a computer program and allows tracking of walking activities as well as other forms of exercise.

I have just registered a team for the Walk for Hope as I have since 1996. The Foundation of Hope is a charity which raises money for research into mental illness.  The way they distribute the money is to give so-called ‘seed money’ which enables researchers to do the work necessary to apply for grants for comprehensive research. By using this method, the Foundation of Hope has been instrumental in securing millions of dollars to find cures or relief for those suffering from mental illnesses.

Bootcamp, kettlebells, pilates, yoga, weight training. There are so many ways to exercise, it’s hard to know how to get started or which one will lead to success with your wellness goals. But last week, I read a story about the oldest man alive, a Bolivian peasant, Carmelo Flores Laura. When asked what his secret to longevity was, he replied, “I walk a lot, that’s all.”

I started my weight loss journey by walking every morning. I always enjoyed walking, even in the rain. When you walk instead of drive you get a whole new perspective on the world. Especially when you do it like I did... with kids. Through my walks I discovered a fantastic group that I had never heard of before... Volksporting. That is a walking group. I get emails every week about a walk that this group does all over the area. Sometimes it's really nice having the company of walking with a group.

 In order to complete a 5K in 30 minutes you need to run at an average of 6.2 miles per hour. You can simply run a constant, steady state pace of 6.2 mph or vary your speed during the workout.

Justin's family and mine have been really good friends for many years, a friendship that's more like some family you get to choose, which is how I earned the affectionate title as Justin's aunt Rachel.

All year long we look forward to the month of December. Celebrating the holidays with family and friends. Remembering old traditions and creating new ones. Reconnecting with people you may not have seen for awhile. It also means more things being added to our to do lists. Shopping, wrapping, mailing, parties, cooking, etc. To create room for these new to dos, something often has to be removed. For many of us, that something is our workout. But it doesn't have to be! Exercise doesn't have to mean a trip to the gym or an hour long session.
