New rowing machine

Last week, after I got the Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday, I didn’t work out that day or the next. The CDC’s instructions were to take it easy after getting the vaccine. I did that the first time and I didn’t have any side effects except for some pain in the upper left arm, where I … Continue reading New rowing machine

I can do it, I can stay focused

On Monday I started part two of Focus T25 Gamma. In my mind I was thinking that it would be more difficult right from the beginning just because it’s the second part. I thought it had to be different and tougher. Now I'm on the third day and it has not been more difficult yet. … Continue reading I can do it, I can stay focused

First day of work 2021

Today was the first day of work after Christmas vacation and first day of work of 2021. First days of anything after vacation are always horrible but this one wasn’t bad. The only thing that was difficult was having to wake up at 6:30 again. I thought I wouldn’t want to go for a walk … Continue reading First day of work 2021

Walking in the sand

First day of my Christmas vacation was a success! I haven’t rested much but I did sort of complete my goal for today. My mom and I decided we’re going to be walking in different places during our vacation. Today we were going to the beach and our goal was to walk three miles. It … Continue reading Walking in the sand

I made it to week five!

I made it to week five, the last week of Focus T25 Alpha. I’m still not celebrating anything because I still have a week to go but I made it to week five! The week started with Total Body Circuit and I did my best, however that’s a tough one. I wish I could say … Continue reading I made it to week five!

I said I would and I did!

I never take my self to seriously when I say I’m going to wake up early the next day. I know I want to but at night but I don’t really want to in the morning. That’s where I draw the line at being unstoppable, when I want to keep sleeping. So last night, when … Continue reading I said I would and I did!

All day exercising

Today I had all day to do whatever I wanted and I had a few things in mind. Before doing anything else I wanted to exercise and get that done in the morning, then I would have the rest of the day to do everything else. I didn’t do anything else. I started at 10 … Continue reading All day exercising

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

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

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

Setting goals

The first week of blogging after exercising has been a success. I have been able to work out every day this week. I didn’t blog last night but I did exercise. And finally today, when I was tired and just wanted to be lazy, I decided to get up and walk to at least let … Continue reading Setting goals

This is not over yet

I thought that by July this should all be under control, I mean, we have been living with this huge mess for over four months now. We should have our act together by now, but no, it’s just getting worse. People just want to go “back to normal“ but WE CAN’T. That is not normal … Continue reading This is not over yet

All I needed was a little silence

At first I found it pretty weird that I was a pretty consistent writer during those two months in quarantine. I always found inspiration while I was at home all day yet I was out of it pretty soon after I started working again in mid May. I didn’t know what happened, why I had … Continue reading All I needed was a little silence

Eight years!

Eight years! Who thought eight years ago today I would be, well stuck at home all day? Ok yeah, maybe some people thought that might be the case, but it wouldn’t have been for the same reason. I don’t think eight years ago anybody thought we would be quarantined and dealing with a pandemic. Who … Continue reading Eight years!
