Step 7: Get Moving

Regular activity burns calories, builds muscle, reduces your risk of disease, and sharpens your mind, says Pamela Peeke, MD, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Maryland and author of Fit to Live.

  • Move more all day long. Go for a walk around the block. At work, instead of sending e-mail, get up and visit your colleagues.
  • Build up to 10,000 steps a day. To get started, wear a pedometer and figure out how many daily steps you typically take. Then, every couple of days, add 500 extra steps until you reach 10,000.
  • Try more challenging activities once you've boosted your fitness level. To get tips and meet up with other women just like you, join our message boards.
