“Work It” Walking Workout

Hi friends! Happy humpday! Hope your morning is off to a great start. I’m excited to bring you a treadmill walking workout today. 

Some adventures from lately, as told from my iPhone:

Glowing in the spin room under the backlights. Class on Monday was a blast, as usual, and I added some new songs to the playlist. We all listened to the new Taylor Swift song (perfect for a steady seated climb) before it’s extremely overplayed.

Livi and I had a double date yesterday: two delicious meals out together. Usually I prefer to cook as much as I can at home, but it was one of those rare “meh” cooking days. Mid-afternoon, I was really hankering for an acai bowl, and I was stoked that Liv was on board. I didn’t know if we’d be able to finish both bowls, but somehow, we persevered. The acai-loving-apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. (Speaking of acai, I have an AMAZING new pitaya recipe for you this afternoon!)

Love our little lunch dates.

When the Pilot got home from work, I went to meet Jess for a class at Prana Yoga, which has become one of my favorite studios here in San Diego. We don’t live super close, so I don’t go as much as I’d like, but I’m always glad when I can make it to a class. The owner, Gerhard, is extremely knowledgeable and I love that he walks around the assist and adjust everyone during our practice. He helped me reach an entirely new variation of bird of paradise last night. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. Classes aren’t super hot -which I’m thankful for, since I’m not able to do hot power yoga right now- and the flow is always unique. Sometimes classes become predictable, and for this one, I never know what’s coming next.

Dinner was at Native Foods while the Pilot got in his workout at the gym.


I had an awesome Bangkok curry bowl (brown rice with a coconut milk curry broth, kale, steamed veggies and blackened tempeh), and then Liv and I shared a vegan oatmeal creme pie cookie. It was just as delicious as it looks.

Treadmill Walking Workout

I’m off to a meeting this morning, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a new treadmill walking workout! I did this one last week, and it’s a great way to add additional challenge and engage various leg muscles. Incline walking is SO good for the bootay. 🙂 Here’s the workout if you’d like to give it a try!

WORK IT Walking workout

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

    I want an orange theory here in Dayton! I miss the city…sigh. The ups and downs of moving around a lot!

  2. Erica {Erica@EricaDHouse.com} on May 20, 2015 at 7:25 am

    As I’m nearing my 3rd trimester I’m having to give up a lot of my favorite workouts (just impossible to do with this big ol’ belly!) I’m definitely going to have to try that walking workout this week.

    Omg Liv’s EYEBROWS! They are magnificent! I hope she doesn’t go through the sperm-eyebrow phase that I did in middle school haha.

    • Fitnessista on May 20, 2015 at 4:27 pm

      this made me laugh so hard. and yes, she has gorgeous brows!

    Hey Gina! Totally random, but I know you’ve posted about your attempts with coconut flour in the past. I’ve been experimenting with it and found the perfect way to make it fluffy and light, not crumbly! You have to FLUFF it first with a fork, and then measure out how much you need (I usually do 1 tablespoon per egg) and level off the measurement without packing it down! I also do mix half a mashed banana with the egg before adding the coconut flour, because it adds more stability to the final product and less “eggy-ness” (and also sweetness, of course). Also some baking powder and vanilla extract, if you want. I’ve made pancakes and mug cakes with this recipe before and they’re both amazing! Just wanted to share!

    • Fitnessista on May 20, 2015 at 4:27 pm

      you are AMAZING! i will definitely try this!

  5. Amanda @ Slimplify Life on May 20, 2015 at 7:56 am

    That Bangkok Curry Bowl looks to die for. It reminded me of the last time I was in San Diego we made a stop at Evolution Fast Food and it had AMAZING vegan options, I still dream about their sweet potato fries.

  6. Morgan @ Morgan Manages Mommyhood on May 20, 2015 at 8:27 am

    I used to lovvee sweaty treadmill walking workouts when I couldn’t run. THis one looks awesome!

  7. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on May 20, 2015 at 8:57 am

    I love TSwift! And that curry bowl looks amazing! I’m so jealous you have so many acai options by you! I’m still waiting on Omaha to get one!

    • Fitnessista on May 20, 2015 at 4:26 pm

      hopefully they’ll get one soon!

  8. Erin @ Erin's Inside Job on May 20, 2015 at 9:11 am

    We have a Native Foods here in Chicago (not sure if it’s a chain) and the one time I went it was pretty good! Those bowls also look delicious and are reminding me that I need to eat something!

  9. Julia @ Lord Still Loves Me on May 20, 2015 at 9:12 am

    I didn’t know Taylor Swift had a new song out! Thank you for introducing me to it! I have only taken one spin class in my life however if it had been glow in the dark, I probably would have enjoyed it much more!

  10. Elle on May 20, 2015 at 9:34 am

    Loving that new T Swift song. I’m gonna have that one repeat today!

  11. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on May 20, 2015 at 9:56 am

    So many good songs are killed being overplayed. It’s a bummer!

  12. Britt@MyOwnBalance on May 20, 2015 at 9:59 am

    I did a ton of walking when I was pregnant and after I had Cooper. I still try to walk with him in the stroller as much as possible.

  13. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on May 20, 2015 at 10:30 am

    You and your lunch date! So cute! Incline walking is a great workout, and a great option for non-impact too. Hope you have a happy Wednesday, Gina! 🙂 I’m off to teaching BODYATTACK and two Orangetheory classes! Pass the herbal tea for my throat hahah

    • Fitnessista on May 20, 2015 at 4:21 pm

      ahhh! after 3 barre classes i can hardly talk. you are a rock star

  14. Sandy on May 20, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Would you consider this to be more of a cardio work out or a lower body strength workout? Or just a mix of both??

    • Fitnessista on May 20, 2015 at 4:21 pm

      cardio with a leg emphasis, but i wouldn’t sub it for strength training

  15. Heather@hungryforbalance on May 20, 2015 at 2:33 pm

    I love that you posted this walking workout! I am having to take a break from high intensity workouts right now, so this will be perfect!
    Those Acai bowls look amazing!

  16. kristin | W [H] A T C H on May 20, 2015 at 6:28 pm

    girl, i totally have those meh cooking days too.

  17. Faye Holloway on May 20, 2015 at 9:02 pm

    Do you ever do the power walking in Orange theory?

    • Fitnessista on May 20, 2015 at 10:12 pm

      for my last two classes, i’ve alternated between running and hill walking

  18. Jenn@Mark My Miles! on May 21, 2015 at 7:53 am

  19. Monica on May 22, 2015 at 1:21 am
