    Walking is a very comfortable to burn some calories. It's also a nice way to break up your day by taking a walk outside if you have an indoor job. This is a pretty good video on some of the benefits of walking by Elliot Hulse. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKelkKvm49Y

      Walking is great! Try mixing it up by walking as fast as you can (without running) and getting your arms involved for extra cardio. It needs to be challenging for it to work :)
