Walking To Stay Healthy... We Do It
Did You Know? -
1 Mile = 1500 steps
1 Mile walked = 100 calories burned
1 Pound = 3500 calories
2 Pound weight loss per week = 7000 cal, or a 500 cal deficit per day
1 Pound weight loss per week just by walking = 5 extra miles walked per day - or 7,500 extra steps (in addition to the distance that you are currently covering while maintaining weight)

Since the broken thumb, it was hard for meto hold onto the treadmill so it was time to walk! Usually for an hour at about 3 miles/hour. I never take the same route just to make things interesting and I find my way home using Waze/GPS.
When I am out and about I always have a camera so I decided to take some pictures that caught my eye! Some days I take pictures and some days not... Usually depends upon the time of day and the sunlight!
BTW, we have been walking Rossmoor for years. Visit some snaps from June 2011 .
Please enjoy the "Snaps"...
