The Meet-You-There Walk
Instead of driving with your spouse to the market or some other nearby destination, leave a bit earlier on foot and meet him there, then catch a ride back home.
First step: If you normally walk a three-mile loop in the neighborhood, draw a circle on a map extending that far out in all directions from your home. This is your sphere of possibility (and it’ll grow larger as you get fitter). Need major motivation to lose weight walking? Repeat these weight-loss motivation mantras to yourself.

First step: You’ll need something to carry your stuff, so get a backpack, or buy a chic and eco-friendly market basket (try medinabaskets.com). Here are some more ways to make your walking routing healthier and lose weight walking.
