On the Joy Of Being Out and About

"I just enjoy being out, even if it's raining. I'm just addicted to the sport. Some people play baseball, football, basketball, soccer or hockey. I am no athlete, so I just walk on the trails."

Ken Wilson, 81, who has logged nearly 56,000 miles of trail walking since he started tracking his walks in 1975.

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

In which this weeks Featured Body, syrupandhoney, walks to avoid death, discovers the stairs, and, once again, makes gourmet fabulous oatmeal for breakfast.

SELF arm workout and a 25 minute walk. i've been trying to walk more lately. especially when i don't feel like working out and don't have something else productive to do, walking has become my default. and i'm not talking about speed walking...just a leisurely stroll as a substitute for watching tv or browsing the internet.

The Shape With Chelsea Handler On the Cover Is Full Of Modified Pilates Moves

Chelsea Handler's family thought she was getting really fat, but that's just because they were watching her on wide-screen. She eats lots of Swedish fish but also does Pilates six times a week. And she'll never give up alcohol, no matter what her nutritionist says. Having a kid or a pet in your bed is a sexy sack saboteour. "Bad Girl" by Britney Spears featuring Lil Wayne is very good for the gym. Use alcohol wipes to swab down the soles of your feet after walking through airport security. Set an alarm at night to remind you to go to bed. Save $1200 a year by working out instead of going to therapy. You can wash your sneakers in the washing machine as long as you remove the liners first and choose cold cycle, then air dry them with newspaper stuffed inside. Eat a turkey sandwich before shopping, and you'll have better retail impulse control. Almond flour is packed with protein, fiber, magnesium and vitamin E. Losing weight won't solve all your problems, and everyone won't be happy for you. You'll burn 67% more calories if you walk with walking poles.

Morning Jog

"After some technical difficulties (dead iPod, iPhone set on shuffle and switching tracks every time my butt bounced too violently), i had a lovely, lovely morning jog. Walked a little bit, but mostly because I wanted to enjoy it, rather than feel like it was a forced march. And it worked!"

in spite of consuming mass quantities of ale last night

I walked a best time this morning.  It helped that I had someone, syrupandhoney, to push me.

Have you guys read Cosmo lately? It is terrifying.

I went to the gym today without reading material -- gasp -- and flipped through Cosmo. It certainly was distracting:

32 minutes

2.25 miles

190 cals burned

a whole lot of meters climbed.

But seriously, the romantic advice: "Clutch your man's bicep and say 'wow'?"

Strutting My Stuff

"Tuesday included hours of walking. It wasn't a formal workout, but a workout nonetheless. Also got in some squats and pushups which I realized means that I really have no excuse not to just drop and do 20 here or there to get to my magic numbers!"
