#3 Use A Pedometer To Monitor Your Steps:

One mile= 2000 steps and 100 calories burned 
1 pound= 3500 calories 
Losing 1 pound in a week= 500 calories/day
Walk 10,000 steps to lose 1 pound of weight!

#4 How To Walk

Tighten your stomach to work the abs, and keep your eyes 100 feet ahead of you. Make sure your glutes are being squeezed and you’re zoned out to your music!

#5 Slow And Steady

You should start off walking 15 minutes a day, three days a week. But as you get healthier, you can go up to 60 mins per day!
