I’m looking for people who would like to join my challenge, “12 Week Walk Program”. This challenge is for beginners who want to increase their strength and endurance through walking.
This 12 Week Walk Program is based from the book “The Beginning Runner’s Handbook” by Ian MacNeill & the Sports Medicine Council of British Columbia.

I just started my diet last week and I am a beginner to any exercise program and I would like to find a few people and buddies to join me on this journey. The 12 Week Walk Program is a challenge that is designed for people who haven’t lived an active lifestyle in the past and want to make that change into a beginners exercise program.

The 12 Week Walk Program is a step-by-step method with three sessions per week. Each session is specifically outlined with a particular activity and duration. For example:
Week 1: Session # 2 = Walk for 15 minutes at a moderate, normal pace. This program is like having a walking coach in your back pocket. So in closing, I am looking for a few good beginners who would like to join me on this journey on living a more active lifestyle. If this 12 Week Walk Program interests you, please join the challenge.

Just started walking again. I was looking for a good program to train up to a daily 90 minute walk/jog. Your plan looks solid, so I joined. I have 160lbs to lose, here is where I start!

Took more steps yesterday, but didn't burn as many calories???
Could be that fit bit tracks not only steps but heart rate. Maybe the steps you took the day before was creating a faster heart rate. Just a guess.
