Tag: don’t give up
On March 29, 2015 I decided to share the journey I had been on for three years. I was scared and a little insecure, but today, nine years later I’m proud to say I have lost some of that fear and insecurity. It’s still difficult putting myself out there and waiting to see if people … Continue reading Nine years later
This year I had two New Year’s resolutions. I have been doing my best to keep the first one which is writing more, but I hadn’t even started the second one, running again, for a number of reasons, including Covid. Now that that’s not an excuse anymore, I decided to stop wondering why I haven’t … Continue reading Working on my New Year’s resolution
I just finished the first part of the ChaLEAN Extreme program. This program includes four different four week resistance training calendars. The one I just finished is called Burn Phase It did take me longer than four weeks because I had Mycoplasma when I was starting the third week, but I jumped back in after … Continue reading ChaLEAN Extreme-Push Phase
I’m happy to say I found my new workout program very quickly; I only tried one two before deciding which one was right for me. I realized I liked the ChaLEAN Extreme program pretty quickly after I started it, even though I didn’t think I wanted to do resistance training, and I just finished my … Continue reading ChaLEAN Extreme- Week 1
After eight long weeks, I finished the PiYo/T25 Hybrid Program yesterday. It feels like that program was longer than two months instead of just eight weeks but I enjoyed doing those two very different routines together. At times they both felt just as difficult, even though they are very different. I this that’s what I … Continue reading Finished PiYo/T25 Hybrid Workout
So now there’s only five days left of the PiYo/T25 workout program. From now until Saturday it’s going to be a piece of cake because I did the most difficult video for the last time today. As tired as I am from that 50 minute PiYo video, I couldn’t help but smile when I realized … Continue reading Less that one week left!
Today I finished all four months of PiYo. This low impact program combines benefits from both Pilates and Yoga. It was something new to me and a little different than what I was used to but I quickly learned and enjoyed it. It was nothing too difficult but not too easy either. It was definitely … Continue reading Finished PiYo!
Now that I finished another week of PiYo, I decided to look at the calendar to see what to expect in the next five weeks. If I’m being honest, I have to say I just got a little scared. I have already done a lot of what’s left at least once but there are still … Continue reading I made it to week 12 of PiYo!
I have to make a correction to something I said more than once in previous blog posts. I said that the workout videos program I’m doing now was ton high intensity and that it was easier. I recently realized that I was very wrong. This is not easy and while it is “low-impact”, it really … Continue reading Workouts feel more challenging every day
Finished week three of PiYo a couple of hours ago. Today’s workout was Strength Intervals and I really didn’t know what to expect. It was a little different then the others but I liked it because I felt like it included cardio. Even though it was a short video and I didn’t think I did … Continue reading PiYo Strength Intervals
It’s three days into the new year and today I felt the need to begin my current workout program from the beginning. I haven’t been doing this one for so long but I was having trouble following the daily calendar for the program. At first I thought I was doing fine but then I lost … Continue reading New year, starting over
The Asylum program didn’t work out either. I lost count of how many I have tried in the las few months. There were a few reasons why this one didn’t last either, among those being the job at Old Navy, Holiday distractions, a little confusion with the workout calendar and that I don’t have all … Continue reading New program: PiYo
