Walking for Low Impact Cardio!


I had no idea it was going to be so humid out this morning, but I strapped Ava in the stroller and we headed out for an early morning walk. I was DRIPPING sweat practically the whole time. We went up several hills and I could feel the sweat rolling off my face. I loved it but I’m not going to lie I couldn’t wait to step in front of the AC.

We walked for about 45 minutes with a pit stop at my mom’s office to say hi.


My heart rate monitor showed that I burned 282 calories! My heart rate got up fairly high and I was walking at a very fast pace. Obviously if I walked slower I would now have burned as many calories.

I know I have posted about walking before, but I have grown to love walking as cardiovascular exercise. After 4 days straight of intense exercise and being on my feet at work it is nice change of pace. It helps to loosen up my muscles and because it is low impact I know I am not stressing my joints!

Ava loved it.. can’t you tell?? Just kidding she was ready for a nap when we got back!
