Exercising after Thanksgiving

I hope you got to enjoy the weirder that usual Thanksgiving, and got to see at least some of your loved ones with safety precautions or on Zoom, WhatsApp, FaceTime or some other video calling app. After eating a slightly larger than usual lunch yesterday, I decided that even though it was a holiday, I … Continue reading Exercising after Thanksgiving

Exercising to stay sane

Right now I think it’s one of those times where having something to focus on and distract yourself is very important. I have found two things, exercise and writing. I think that’s what’s keeping me sane right now with all these horrible Covid19 news. I don’t write about Covid anymore like I did in the … Continue reading Exercising to stay sane

Another day, done!

I completed my goal for today again, this time in a different order. I did the first two parts of my workout, the bicycle and the video, this morning before work. After work I finished by walking outside for one mile. We didn’t walk more because it was going to start raining but we also … Continue reading Another day, done!

Doing better every day

Today we walked more than we did on Thursday and we finished our walk faster. Next time we’re aiming to walk a little more, maybe like 2.30 miles. It’s not a lot more but if we increase little by little we can get to three miles pretty soon. I also managed to do 25 more … Continue reading Doing better every day

I didn’t know I had that much energy

I feel like I’m really getting into this whole exercising thing. I think I’m starting to see results and I don’t know how to explain it but I feel good. Even now, I’m tired from today’s workout but it’s like a good tired, if that makes any sense at all. Today I followed exactly the … Continue reading I didn’t know I had that much energy

Happy to say I made it through week one

I can finally say I finished my first week of Focus T25. Today was my last day, all I had to do was stretch. Each of these videos has a few minutes of stretching at the end but today was 25 minutes of stretching. It is not difficult at all and I like we don’t … Continue reading Happy to say I made it through week one

Double day

I wanted to take it easy today so I was hoping the video for today was an easy one, but I forgot it’s Friday and Friday is double day in the Focus T25 routine. This means you do two videos, or 50 minutes, instead of the regular 25. This doesn’t mean you have to do … Continue reading Double day

Last minute change in our walking route

Today, our new walking group bailed on us so my mom and I decided to pick our own walking route. We thought is would be better to walk outside, not in a parking lot so we went nearby to my grandparents neighborhood. It’s safe, it’s open and my mom knows her way around because she … Continue reading Last minute change in our walking route

Exercising during Christmas time

Because today also a holiday, I exercised in the morning. It was the same as always, bicycle, video and treadmill. I have been doing everything I’m the same order every day so the only thing that changes is the video I do each day according to the T25 calendar. Today’s video was a full body … Continue reading Exercising during Christmas time

Interval training

This afternoon I did the second video of the Focus T25 exercise routine. I thought I wouldn’t want to do anything today after all I did yesterday but I did! Just like yesterday, I used the stationary bike, did the video and walked on the treadmill. Today I used the bike for 45 minutes, then … Continue reading Interval training

Let’s try this again

Today I made a last minute decision and changed my exercise routine a little bit. I hope it will be for the better and I don’t change my mind halfway through. After already warming up and spending over half an hour on the bicycle, I decided I didn’t want to just keep doing workout videos … Continue reading Let’s try this again

Running on Thursdays

Even though Thursday is usually the hardest day of the week at work for me, I’ve completed my second week of running with my coworkers after work on a Thursday. I thought it was going to be easier this week because I already knew what I was getting myself into and because I have been … Continue reading Running on Thursdays

Exercise to distract myself

I couldn’t wait to start exercising this morning mostly because it was a great distraction from the news and thinking about the election results. I started quickly after breakfast. I didn’t want to look at any news or updates on social media and exercising is a good way to get your mind and attention off … Continue reading Exercise to distract myself

Exercised and got the flu shot!

Today I got to my workout pretty early after I came home from work. I had to be done early because I was getting my flu shot so I started walking quickly after I finished my lunch. Now I realize that was a mistake and that’s probably why I didn’t want to walk. Because of … Continue reading Exercised and got the flu shot!

Second week: Done!

I waited until the end of the day to exercise today so I thought I would probably just do a half an hour on the bicycle and be done with it. I didn’t feel like putting that much effort into it. Who wants to exercise on Saturday afternoon? Not me, I thought, but I wanted … Continue reading Second week: Done!
