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
That’s it, I did it! I finished the 60 day Insanity program. I still can’t believe I did it and, as I’ve already said it, I didn’t think I would be able to do it but I had to try and I did it! I worked out six days a week for nine weeks from … Continue reading Insanity workouts: DONE!
That’s right, just two weeks of Insanity. That’s s nothing, especially after you have already put in six weeks, seven if you count recovery week, but right now it feels like an eternity. That’s 17 workout videos in 13 days. There’s two ways of thinking about that: 1) Shit, that’s a lot! I can’t do … Continue reading This is it, last two weeks!
After a pretty intimidating first week of month two of the Insanity workouts, I have to say I’m a little relieved. I was afraid my knee would start bothering me again and maybe even hurt more but I don’t feel anything like that. By the end of each of these workouts I can barely do … Continue reading A week full of distractions
We do amazing things when we’re motivated, like yesterday morning for instance, I didn’t hesitate to get out of bed when I heard my alarm. I went straight into my workout. I didn’t have all day to do it like I usually do so I had to hurry and I really couldn’t, or didn’t want … Continue reading One more week DONE!
I’ve got some good news, I got a job! I was worried it might take a long time because I thought I would be competing with a lot of other people. I sent many resumes but heard back from one of them for an interview pretty quickly and I got it! I’m nervous about it, … Continue reading Working hard for what I want
I made up my mind yesterday, I was going to continue doing the Insanity workout program today. I even did the fit test yesterday so I was ready to start and I was even going to be able to do it earlier that usual. Everything seemed to be in place, except the power went out … Continue reading Who would have thought nine years ago I’d be doing this today?
After three months and a half, I’m almost at the end of Insanity Max:30. With only two weeks left, I can’t help but think back to the moment I decided to start this and wonder, what was I thinking? I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into, but I’m glad I didn’t because … Continue reading Just two weeks to go!
After finishing the first month of Ab Maximizer (third month of Insanity Max:30) I took a week off from high intensity exercise. It wasn’t really a choice, I didn’t want to take a break, but I wasn’t feeling very well. It wasn’t Covid19 or anything to worry about and I’m fine after resting for a … Continue reading Last month of Insanity Max
