In Part I of this blog series, The Five Ws of Women Walking, I shared WHY women have to walk. (WHY tidily encompasses WHEN and WHERE, illustrating the multi-tasking magic inherent in walking.) In today’s post I’m going to share WHO walking is for. To cut to the chase: EVERY WOMAN!
Walking is for every woman!
Having said that, here’s some questions for you:
Have you ever said, “I want to workout but I don’t have the time”?
Have you ever confessed that you actually hate they gym?
Have you ever despaired that you’ll never find a workout that works for you?
Have you tried yoga, Pilates, hot boxing, etc all to no avail?
Do you feel guilty and ashamed that you aren’t getting the workout you want and need?
Do you sit at work all day?
Do you feel lethargic, depressed, brain-fogged?
Does your body ache?
Has your doctor prescribed walking?
Is every day of your life packed full to the point of bursting?
Do you yearn for a break from it all?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then walking is for you.
Walking solves all these problems, obstacles, challenges and more!
I can hear you now saying, “Oh I know I should walk but . . .”
My rebuttal is, “But what?”
But walking isn’t real exercise?
But walking isn’t enough?
But, you’re thinking, “I hate walking”?
But walking is boring?
I hear you still but no worries! In next week’s post, where I wrap up this series, I’ll address your “buts” by sharing WHAT walking really is. (And I’m throwing in a bonus HOW.)
