Patients with newly diagnosed gestational diabetes will be recruited. The control group with get routine diet and exercise counseling. The intervention group will be instructed to get moderate-to-vigorous intensity exercise; they will walk on a treadmill one time with supervision in order to be instructed how hard to work. All participants will keep an exercise log for 3 weeks and will wear an accelerometer for 1 week.
