Walking Journal

By: Sarah Carlye

Beginning a walking program can be a good way to loose weight and get into shape. When wearing the Stepgym shoe, loosing weight and getting into shape is easier because each step is a workout. There will come a time with any exercise program that there is a lack of motivation due to reaching a “plateau” or due to boredom. That can be resolved by keeping a walking journal.

It is best to start a walking journal when you begin a walking program, but it can be started any time to have good results. Journals for walking can be an inexpensive spiral notebook or a binder with tabs to separate different parts of the journal and filled with notebook paper.

A basic walking journal will include the following:

• Date of walk
• Time of walk
• Length of walk
• Weekly weight log
• Weather
• Reason walk missed
• Location of walk
• Anyone who goes on walk
• Walking goals
• A calendar for reference
• Photographs

Walking can become a productive time, not just a chore to get through in hopes of seeing improvement in fitness and health. The time walking can do more than improve physical health and fitness. The time walking can be used to do the following:

• Reflect on the positive in your life
• List blessings in life
• Spend uninterrupted time with a partner, children, family, and friends
• Exercise a dog
• Work out the details of a solution to a problem
• Review for a test
• Memorize quotes, scripture, trivia, etc
• Explore new places around where you live

There can be a place in the walking journal to journal any of the above and the following:

• Mood
• Motivation level
• Energy level
• Results/benefit observations

A walking journal on its own will not do any good if you don’t look over it periodically to see progress and the results of walking regularly. It is the review that often provides motivation to keep up on a walking program.

When you aren’t satisfied with the results of walking and want to increase the benefits of walking, you can change from traditional shoes to Stepgym shoes. Go to Stepgym.com to learn more about the Stepgym shoe and order your pair today.
