ChaLEAN Extreme-Push Phase

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

ChaLEAN Extreme- Week 1

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

Finished PiYo/T25 Hybrid Workout

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

Less that one week left!

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!

Finished PiYo!

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!

I made it to week 12 of 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!

Workouts feel more challenging every day

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

PiYo Strength Intervals

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

New year, starting over

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

New program: PiYo

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

Insanity workouts: DONE!

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!

This is it, last two weeks!

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!

A week full of distractions

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

One more week DONE!

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!
