Walking for Health and Weight

I have bought some trainers!! These were the least 'in your face,' even the black ones had vivid pink, orange, or lime green flashes on them.

These are Nike and a half size bigger than I normally wear. I had looked up trainer firms on line and a lot of the comments suggested getting a half or even a full size bigger for width and comfort.
I have walked in them, this afternoon, just once round the lake in our local park, which is half a mile and they are ok.. I think I will wear them in gently until my feet get used to them.
It seems, to prevent Alzheimer's, strengthen your heart and reduce the risk of cancer, the so called experts say walking for 20 minutes three or four times a week is the best way to do this... and  I want to lose weight. I am losing.... but ever so, ever so slowly!
So I am giving it my best effort!
Keep walking folks.. trouble is I would much rather stay inside and cross stitch! LOL
Anyway happy days all. Hope if you're in US you are not in one of the states with snow 3 or 4 ft high.. poor you if you are. We have spring like days and then wet ones but it is a lot warmer. Thank the Lord.

Ooooo, I know what you are talking about! The sports shoes nowadays are awful! How can I be serious when I'm wearing neon green shoes? I hate them. Give me plain old black or white any day. Remember the Nikes that were white with a red swoosh? Those were fun!

I'd rather stay inside and read a book, Chris, so I know how you feel. Too bad I don't live near you so we could hobble along together. My back is getting bad again plus after having broken my ankle twice in a year, it seems I hurt all over. Do you have company on your walks? I find it does help to have someone with whom to chat.

I agree with you Chris. I had to buy a vivid blue with an orange coloured strip. Enjoy your walks.

I like your shoes. In my book, the more colorful the better. I'm also one that needs to lose weight. A lot of weight! I look forward to watching your progress.

They are snazzy! Have to say I never find trainers comfortable for very long, I've bought various pairs.
I can walk miles in my Clarks shoes though. Must get some more soon.
It's hard motivating yourself to go out & walk. I find swimming better for me but need to walk as well to help lose weight. Better to lose it slowly though.

Just keep on walking:) I need to do the same thing! My Husband, the runner in the family, always buys a half size bigger! Great idea! Have a blessed Sunday dear friend, HUGS!
