| | How many miles would walking at a brisk pace for an hour be (approx.)?
I'm slowly trying to get into shape, and get back into some pants that fit me last year. I am not doing anything too drastic, but one thing that I have started doing is exercising everyday. I used to run long distance, but due to sore knees and such, I am walking. I have been walking for an hour to an hour and a half everyday plus working out on weights for a half hour. I know that walking is not extremely aerobic, but it is better than nothing, eh? My question is: How many miles would walking for an hour at a brisk pace be (approx.)? I would just like a ballpark estimate, if anyone knows. In any case, I am also watching what I eat, counting a few calories here and there (aiming for about 1800-2000 per day) and watching fat and carb intake. It is working. I have been doing this for about a week and my pants are noticibly getting looser.
Another question: I am always hungry since I am exercising more. I find it very easy to drop a few pounds, and I think that I have a fairly fast metabolism. So...what can I do to keep myself full and still watch what I am eating. I don't really restrict myself too much at all, but I just try to eat three square meals a day, and not go overboard with the portions. Any ideas? I have done the low-carb thing, but eating that much rich food makes me sick (literally) and I have NO energy. I did the Atkin's deal for a week, and now I am slowly weaning myself BACK onto heavier foods. I made myself so sick that I could not even think about eating beef or chicken or cheese. I don't think that diet is for me.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
