Hi, I'm new to the site, and I find all this sharing and support just great!! I've 30 lbs. to lose, but I am not following any particular plan--just sensible eating and exercise. My favorite exercise is outdoor walking. I've been doing it off and on for over a year now. It makes me feel great! My top distance at a time is 1 1/4 miles. I'd like to walk longer, but time is limited--I'm a working mom.
I am looking for a suggestion to make my walks more effective. Since I've begun, I've noticed changes in my legs and hips, but I don't think I am getting much of an upper body workout. Is there some way that I could incorporate something like that into my walking? I don't want to stop walking and do push-ups or crunches. I want it to be part of the walking itself. Any ideas would be immensely appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
