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
Today, first thing in the morning, I went to the laboratory to get the Covid19 antigen test. I had already spent a week in my house, only leaving on Saturday for a walk at the beach. I had to get back to work, I felt fine and I couldn’t spend one more week in my … Continue reading Got a negative Covid test!
The new year is only two and a half hours away and I don’t know what to expect from this new year but I do have two resolutions for 2023. The first one, writing more, has three parts: 1) Publish more blog posts- I wrote a lot less than other years in 2022 and I … Continue reading Happy New Year 2023!
As of a few weeks ago I had to change the streaming service I used to workout. Now I’m using Apple Fitness instead Beach Body on Demand and the two are very different. Beach Body had a lot of different workout programs and Apple Fitness has hundreds of videos. I was already used to using … Continue reading Using Apple Fitness
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 thought everything was perfect as long as I took my anti convulsive medications, didn’t drink alcohol and slept eight hours every night. I forgot that I shouldn’t gain weight, at least not too much. Gaining weight affects my medication levels; if they are too low it could lead to a seizure. I have only … Continue reading More workouts and no more snacking
This week I didn’t feel any symptoms of Mycoplasma so I decided it would be a good idea to start exercising again. I knew that after not doing anything for one week and just a few recovery videos last week, it wasn’t going to be easy to start again, and I was right. But I’m … Continue reading Feeling better and even exercising again!
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 finishing my last workout program a week ago, my first attempt at a new program did not work. I was a little disappointed at first but quickly realized that I would much rather do something a little less intense before jumping into another program. That’s exactly what I did, I finished the week off … Continue reading Resistance training instead of cardio
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!
I’m happy to say I got to week seven of the eight week PiYo/T25 Hybrid program.
I finally made it to week five of the PiYo/T25 Hybrid program. It took me a little longer to complete week four because I had trouble finishing it the first time I tried. I was just too tired so I took a break and rested for what was left of that week and tried again … Continue reading PiYo/T25 Hybrid- Week Five
I didn’t waste any time looking for a new workout program after I finished the four month PiYo program last week. I quickly started the PiYo/T25 Hybrid calendar and I really enjoy the mix of these two programs. I like having the intense T25 workouts combined with the low impact PiYo workouts. Having to do … Continue reading PiYo/T25 Hybrid
