Saturday, August 17th, 2013 *Core Walking

So today I managed to get up and get moving right away.  Snuck out leaving my hubby to fend for himself with our kiddos, lol!  Starting walking and was just so entranced by my surroundings I never did make it to a jog/run, but taking your time with something has its advantages as well.  While I was walking, Jillian popped into my head talking about punches.

Now for those of you who have seen or done her 30 day or watching TBL, this move is one in which you sit down in a squat position (getting as low as you can) and then punch it out, left, right, left, right, “time your breathing with your punches” (you hear her now don’t you  🙂

So anyway as I am walking, I try just small, very controlled punches to the rhythm of my walking.

And I notice the feeling in my abs.

my abs!

By adding this small movement to my walk, my heart rate was up in the ‘weight loss’ range and I was really feeling it!

Side benefit:  it made me feel strong!

So definitely going to add this in when I am at home walking!!
