Walking program!: This is one of those use-it-or-lose-it times! the more you stay active, the better. Now, by active i don't mean running marathons or playing contact sports--i want you to park farther back in the supermarket parking lot, i want you to walk around the block three times a week, i want you to spend some time out of a recliner during the day. Little things keep the blood pumping!
