Ive just been for a walk around the lake which took just over half an hour :D What I decided to do (which Im still not so sure was the best idea in the world) was to make sure I held my tummy in (in an attempt to help strengthen my muscles) and I also tried squeezing my bottom together abit so that it would too would firm up a little. Well needless to say by the end of the walk my tummy was feeling ok but my bottom is sooo sore.... so I think it might work afterall :lol:

So that walk around the lake was quite a workout for you Rebekah. I'd be too scared to flex my butt muscles whilst walking (only because the track I take has too many people on it) but I think the next time I walk I'll try to incorporate that idea about holding the stomach muscles in.
Anything to prevent the apron flab.

Today I walked with weights for 30 minutes.

I walked down and around town and home again. Probably 3 hours, 15600 steps.

I've started lifting my legs higher when walking and that really tires my legs out.

15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

Went for my 50 minute walk with a different pedometre. When I did the 45 min walk around the whole subdivision the other day my first pedometre said 2.2kms........I thought I don't think so! So I don't think it was counting every step. So when I was taking the kids to karate I thought I would measure it with the car as I could drive the firebreak with the 4 x 4. So I did drive when I walked and it said 3.7ks. Which I think is more like it. I figured I was walking around the 5k an hour speed. So did my 50 min walk yesterday arvo and found this other pedometre, a kelloggs one from the nutri grain...yay kelloggs!!!! :lol: Anyway I set the step length to 70 like the other one and my 50 min walk said 4.1km. Which I think would be fairly accurate. Said nearly 6000 steps. And I think lifting your legs up a bit higher Tegan is a good thing. I'm sure that is why the lady who walked around the oval here every morning lost all her weight. I used to think when I would see her when I was going for my "power walk" when I lived in town, she's not getting her heart rate up how is she going to lose weight. Seeing her a few months later down the street, as we had moved, and I thought OMG that is incredible. So maybe it's not the speed of the walk but how much you use your muscles and build them up. I always hold my stomach in whilst walking. Not that it has done anything to prevent the big belly from forming over the years!!! At least I can blame it a little on being pregnant twice over the last 11 years! With the second pregnancy 9 years ago. Surely I can still use that as an excuse!!! It's the baby's fat that they left behind!

you feel like a dumbass doing it though. Good thing my usual route is faily uninhabited. I reckon doing the goosestep would be a good workout, but I'm thinking that would look even weirder. Perhaps we should all try the ministry of silly walks routine as our new exercise? :shock:
