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

Got the Covid19 booster dose and the flu shot

I just got the Covid19 booster dose and the flu shot. I always prefer to get vaccines or blood drawn from my left arm. I know it’s an irrational fear but there’s something about the needle and the metal plate I have in my right arm that just makes me nervous. I just don’t want … Continue reading Got the Covid19 booster dose and the flu shot

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!

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!

I finished week one, only seven to go

This was a difficult week to start doing a new workout program, especially one like Insanity. Aside from looking for jobs and taking two online certifications, we were taking care of three dogs my parents found abandoned in the park. We were able to find homes for two of them but we still have one … Continue reading I finished week one, only seven to go

Who would have thought nine years ago I’d be doing this today?

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?

I’m ready to do this again

Since I finished Insanity Max (I love saying that) on Saturday, I had to choose the next program I was going to do. I was caught between Let’s get up and Insanity. They are both by the same coach, Shaun T but they are very different. I had already done Insanity like 10 years ago. … Continue reading I’m ready to do this again

Finished four months of Insanity Max:30!

I did it, I finished all four months of Insanity Max:30! I can’t believe it, I still feel like I may be a week behind or something, but no, I’m done! Today’s last workout was the same one we started with on the first day, Cardio Challenge but I noticed I noticed a big difference … Continue reading Finished four months of Insanity Max:30!

Ready for 60 more days of Insanity Max: 30

I was longing to have a weekend at the beach, I mean, it’s almost July and I don’t think this is the first time I go to the beach this summer. I really wanted to rest and get away for at least a day, so thanks to my cousin and his girlfriend for visiting and … Continue reading Ready for 60 more days of Insanity Max: 30

Exercise bike cardio

Every day when I exercise I begin by doing some kind of cardio exercise, like I used to do when I went to the gym. Right now I like to use the stationary bike but it doesn’t really matter what kind of cardiovascular exercise to do, as long as you do at least 150 minutes … Continue reading Exercise bike cardio

Gamma: Week eight

Today I began week four of Focus T25 Gamma part 2. That is weekeight of the entire Gamma workout program and in four days I’ll be done! I hadn’t noticed that it has already been seven weeks. I cannot say that they went by fast because I feel like I have been doing this forever. … Continue reading Gamma: Week eight

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
