Insanity Max: 30

Well, I tried working out following the posters we have on the walls for a couple of days but I decided to go back to videos. I just couldn’t get used to having to pause to look at a routine and not knowing if I was doing it right. There were some I didn’t know … Continue reading Insanity Max: 30

Finished Focus T25 Gamma: Pure Gamma

After five weeks, I finished part 1, Pure Gamma, of Focus T25 Gamma! The calendar is only four weeks but I couldn’t finish the fourth week on my first try because I got my COVID-19 vaccine that week.

New workout routine

Yesterday I remembered that I finished Focus T25, so I needed to find something else to help me exercise.

They … Continue reading New workout routine

January 30 miles challenge

Life is slowly going back to normal after the holidays, which means taking down Christmas decorations and going back to work. I haven’t started putting away decorations, even though I planned on starting today. I’m not ready to got back to normal just yet, especially since going back to normal will probably mean not having … Continue reading January 30 miles challenge

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

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.

Workout videos vs. Gym

I recently made a change in my life, I left the gym I joined after I was done with my therapies. I had ups and downs at the gym, periods of time when I went frequently and really enjoyed it and times when I was bored, couldn't go that frequently and didn't really feel like … Continue reading Workout videos vs. Gym

Eddie the eagle, another inspiration

The odds where against him, but he didn’t care, he wanted it, and he went for it. This positive, never giving up attitude, is what makes ordinary people extraordinary. A regular boy from England, who had always dreamed of being an Olympian, left home with a dream to be a ski jumper at the Winter … Continue reading Eddie the eagle, another inspiration
