    And some smelling salts in case you get a case of the vapors.

    I listened because I’m a frakin insane, crazy, mental case ----- and my 3 little nephews can run circles around me.

    Jeez, man. It's walking, not an ironman. Walk at your own pace. On your own time. Somewhere peaceful. When it's less than 75 degrees.

    Go PLAY with those nephews and don't clock the mileage. Just play. Who cares if they run circles around you.

    I feel you man. I'm in the southern USA and walking right now at 280lbs in 90 degree heat just is not happening. I don't think at my weight and this temperature it's even advisable! (and i'm a transplanted northerner to boot!)

    I've joined a ymca type gym recently and am going to be throwing my fat ass into the pool. Less strain on my knees and I don't feel like I'm roasting.

    Well that would rule out the months of July, August, and September for me.

    But I did walk/run a little over 2 miles today. And I'm still alive. I haven't had my butt off the couch in 2 weeks.

    I love to walk. I walk 20-30 miles per week between November and May. Our highest local elevation is 67 feet, so it rarely gets strenuous. This time of year is killing me. The kids are home from school, so my routine is off, and it's too hot and humid outside to walk. So I am stuck indoors pretty depressed and cooking most of the time. That means I'm eating too much and the weight is creeping up. I get to the gym occasionally and get on a treadmill.

    Walking is inexpensive and you can do it anywhere for any length of time with little planning. It does take time to develop as an enjoyable habit. If someone is not getting a lot of activity (like I was), walking outdoors is the least dramatic change you can do to get yourself started on exercise. If you get someone enjoyable to walk with you, that can make it much better.

    But don't do anything you dislike. It's just not sustainable. Find something fun.

    Only if it matches your purse.

    I feel bad that the first time I have been able to get up and away from my desk since the walk was just now, but programs don't write themselves.
