Self Propelled: Earth Week Tip for Weight Loss Success

It seems we drive everywhere. I see parents driving their kids a couple blocks to school. We park as close as possible to the door of the gym where we go to work out. Here's a simple tip that will help you with your weight loss goals and help the earth too...just in time for earth week--get into "People Power."

By that I mean walk, pedal, something to get yourself from one place to another that is not dependent upon your car.

OK, I know we are busy and don't have a lot of time...but we are exercising to increase our health and lose how about 1 day a week your exercise is to walk (or bike or skateboard) to the store. If you live too far away or that seems like too much, try parking a couple blocks away. That saves the environment and gets you some exercise without taking up a ton of time.

Try walking the kids to school instead of might just start a healthy habit that will help curb the trend of ill health and obesity in our nations' children.

Not only are we building our muscles and improving our lungs, we are reducing our need for fossil fuels. So you save money and help clean the air at the same time!
