Look at all your walking! After 13 miles in three days, you deserve a short and sweet 3-mile walk!  This is what we have on the agenda today.  Drweil.com wrote an article on our favorite subject: WALKING!  It says, New Yorkers LIVE LONGER, because they WALK MORE!

It's a strong walking day! Two days of four miles each will definitely get your heart rate pumping and your leg muscles burning.  Legs have only one purpose: to move you around.  We were not designed for a life of sitting, but we are forced to sit in front of screens more than ever before!  It’s no wonder why we are at the least active time in the history of human existence.  67% of Americans are over their healthy weight.  The extra weight sneaks up as computers take over our lives! As the use of...

Welcome back, Walkers! We hope you had an awesome weekend filled with plenty of fun, healthy activities.  Today, we are walking off lunch.  Try walking two miles in the morning and two miles in the evening.
