WALK OFF AND SEE THE RESULTS - FITNESS WALKING























Having a great/good/bearable physical condition and to look like having one is entirely different story. I've always been more on the slim dragonfly-weight side, never dieted, never trained. I crossed ages more less in size 8 until my daughter was born and the word 'condition' stuck with me for the first two years of strengthening arm and thigh muscles while going grocery shopping and conditioning the grip on the stroller. Yes, those were the days I could claim my condition to be good for my body capability and piles of photos taken while at it can vouch. I joined gym for a second and bought a swimming pass but because inconsistency was my best mate, I quit. Whenever I was on or off the toning wagon I knew I never grasped the opportunity with all the tendons concerned. Less is better then nothing but I guess if you start, you definitely want great not average results.

This body needs guidance so I'm on a mission to team up with what best this coast has to offer. In its windiest season. I am a pathetic runner but have a potential to be an excellent walker. Years of traipsing around town have laid the foundations on the way to more than just a casual stroll. So quick look at the weather forecast and my trainers were introduced to surface other than my carpeted floors. First time walking was more of a fun then a proper workout but I still managed to walk at a regular pace adjusting  my breath with my step ensuring I felt a little raced heartbeat for a better circulation. Without a pedometer it's just a different kind of fun but squeezing the right muscles I had forgotten they still could be obedient occupied my mind the good way. Another walk and another release of endorphins, corrected foot placement, a little warm-up in the afternoon sun. Then a change of scenery for fun, finding routes offering challenges - sandy beach, pebbly path, windy dune. Yes, I ached all over after the first stroll and still am at times but I feel energized and happy, pleasantly exhausted. I'd love to try to walk in different weather conditions: strong wind or rain to challenge my new-found body. I said I'm on a mission.

Fitness walking can be fun and can provide a great workout (and what a nice excuse for feet massage!). I'm lucky to be living at the seaside so my routes are challenging while the views lift my spirits for extra motivation. Gather clothing that suits the season, pick up a nice location and start with easy daily walks gradually increasing distance and speed. Good luck, dears!  x

  2. Babes you are so lucky you don't have to involve yourself in so many workouts. I am struggling with my size everyday,After having kids it has been a bit of war. I love the fact that you involve yourself in walking, i use to but i stopped, but it's really good cause it tones the legs. Great pictures babes. Regards to your beautiful family. Kisses...

  4. Amazing photos! We live near the beach (2.1 miles away) and just moved here to Navarre, Florida about 3 months ago. We have found that we love walking when we can walk along the water. There's just something so calming and almost spiritual about it. Thanks for stopping by our blog earlier. We just followed yours on GFC and Bloglovin. :)))
