For focused exercise, definitely treadmill. For enjoyment, walking outdoors with my son riding his bike ahead of me.

Just the thought of using a treadmill makes me sweat like I would if I was headed to the gas chamber. Walking is my favorite exercise. I listen to podcasts as I walk. It makes the time go really fast. Do you like needlepoint? Comedy? Cooking? Religion? Politics? Find a podcast that matches your interest and go! Spark On!

Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will".
You are now ready to succeed.
Let's go.

Treadmill so boring; walking outdoors rarely is. Outdoor walking helps my balance by the unevenness strengthening my ankles.

There is no such thing as the final success in life. What is really meaningful is the courage to face the next minute, the next hour, the next day.

I usually cover greater distances and stick with it longer when I run or walk outside. The scenery, different routes, and fresh air all help keep me motivated. I have an office job where I'm stuck inside all day, which might explain why going out makes a difference.

Are you starting over or just getting back on track? Most of us here have fallen off the wagon, gotten up, dusted ourselves off, and get back on track. It happens!

As for the walking or any exercise, the "best" for you is whatever you will consistently do. Personally, I prefer running/walking outside because treadmills bother my knees too much but I do use a treadmill sometimes for maybe 2 miles if the weather is just too crummy. (I live in Minnesota so it has to be super dangerous for me to not go outside.)

Whatever motivates you, do it! I will always LOVE to walk outside but I use my treadmill for times when I can't leave or it is too hot, cold or dark. I have a much easier time running on my treadmill than I do outside, so I do use my treadmill more when it comes to running. Hope you find what motivates you!

When I wake up about 4 or 5 am, there is so dark outside that I absolutely refuse to go out walking so I use the treadmill. I used to HATE treadmilla but now I love it. Usually my pace is 6.4-6.5 and the rise 4-6. No outside walk can trump that.

Me too - outdoors and year-round (barring ice). Even more, I LOVE hiking, and especially love it in the snow!

You get a better workout when walking outside, usually.

Also outdoors gives changes that a treadmill doesn't. It also depends where you live. Where is your air the cleanest? Walking in a polluted city would be less healthy than on a treadmill in an environment with processed air. Or house and gym air is usually not as good as outside. Allergies can also be an issue better controlled indoors. I prefer a 3 mile walk to 15 minutes on a treadmill, but time may also be a factor. Either way is better than not exercising.

I am starting over again this week. I want to know if going for walks outside is more beneficial or using a treadmill?
