Walking in winter

When struggling through the depths of a frigid winter like the present, many look to the web in search of something that will motivate them to get off their comfy couch–well, maybe not everyone. But if you ARE looking to be inspired by real people doing simple things to help promote their health, check out this web site / blog I manage, Walkytalk.com, and let me know what you think.

Walkytalk.com is sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, and is dedicated to teaching Michiganders about the health benefits of walking. We launched the site back in October, and not only is there a blog written by the down-to-earth and energetic Jodi Davis, a woman who lost 162 pounds by simply walking and eating healthy, there’s also a walking log, a supportive forum, some great iTunes playlists, and a Google walking events calendar for those of you who live in this beautiful state of ours, Michigan.
