It will be 43 degrees and sunny in Chicago today!  That doesn’t mean much to those of you in the South, but that’s spring for us.

Do you have your gear ready to begin to walk outside?  Comfortable clothes (especially if you put on a few lbs over the holidays)?  Comfortable walking/running shoes?  Pedometer?  Heart rate monitor?  Walking buddy?

Commit to walking 30 min a day… preferably with a buddy… or your kids!

See this story which says that playing soccer builds bones and aerobic capacity in women… even better than running.  So, soccer moms, help coach the team; or show your kids some moves; don’t just stand on the sidelines!
