I think I need more cardio in my routine.........

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

I've been doing a lot of Pilates. Actually I have more Pilates DVDs than anything else. I do have a few dance workouts though. But my favorite is definitely Pilates. I love the way it makes me feel! But to melt the fat, I think, I still need more cardio.

The problem is, I quite lazy when it comes to cardio. But after I do a cardio workout and really sweat it out, I love the feeling that comes after a cold bath! Like I've really accomplished something!

I think the next time I hesitate to do a cardio workout, I'll remind myself of how good I'll feel after the workout!

    Sometimes cardio is boring and mindless, something to dread. The best way to get in cardio is to find an activity you really enjoy...such as rollerblading, walking/hiking, cycling or swimming...then you will follow through and do it! But remembering how great you feel aftewards is something to remind yourself of BEFORE you talk yourself out of a good cardio session! Dancing is GREAT cardio! Sometimes I just put in Lady Gaga and dance around my living room. I work up a sweat, burn calories and lose myself in the high energy music.

I TOTALLY understand.
Just getting started is a struggle for me too.
(I think I have a lead butt that keeps me on the couch!)

But, as you said, AFTER a good cardio bout
there is a GREAT although tired feeling.

emoticon WE can do it, Sparkers!

BLESSINGS!

    I tend to focus too much on cardio and not enough on strength training.

Gosh! I'm still aching all over!

Sunday, April 08, 2012

I did some Pilates back and abs exercises yesterday. I'm still sore today. So I took a break today. I went to Easter service in the morning. Then I had a nice afternoon nap! I felt so tired after service. Don't know why.............

Good Friday Service

Saturday, April 07, 2012

I have never, even as a Christian, gone to a Good Friday service until yesterday. In fact, I was feeling a little unwell after dialysis but I prayed for God's healing touch, so that I can go to church for the Good Friday service. And God answered.

Even though, I felt a little giddy each time I stood up to sing praises to Him, I was well enough to go through the entire service.

I'm also proud of myself this year because I actually managed to complete an Easter meditation reading by the people who produce the Daily Bread. But I've neglected my normal reading. So, maybe I shouldn't rest on my laurels.

Regular Quiet time is something I struggle with.............but at least I attend church and small group meetings.............

    We walk the path to our spiritual "fitness" just as we walk the path to our physical fitness! And each step of the way He is with us. We gain some distance down that path and at times we might sit for a while. Other times we may wander OFF that path only to realize we can turn around and find our way back. Such it is with our health and fitness. Lean on Him to help you down BOTH paths.....you'll get there....have a blessed Easter.

I had a fab haircut today!

Thursday, April 05, 2012

My head feels so light already! My hairdresser layered my hair so it wasn't so heavy at the bottom. The bad news is, I can't make a bun anymore because I have lost some volume & length. The good news is, I'm loving the new cut and my hair is very tidy and neat looking now.

I can't afford to perm my hair. So, I'll just settle for a good cut. As for color, I normally do it myself. I will have to wait till my hair gains some length again before I do the fancy stuff again. But I'm happy with my cut. I've decided to grow it longer, so, I'll just have to be patient and wait 6 months before my next trim!

    I'm glad you are happy with the way it turned out. There is nothing worse than hating your haircut. Been there, done that! Enjoy your new hairdo for the spring/summer.

OMG!!!! My triceps are aching today!

Monday, April 02, 2012

If you want the same aches, go to www.youtube.com and search for POP Pilates! The instructor, Cassie Ho, really kicks butt! I would love to have a body like her's! But don't forget the cardio! Pilates alone won't melt off the fat! But it will give you long, lean muscles but no one's going to see them if you have a layer of fat over them!

Oh well, I'm so tired! I think I'll head off to bed now! Bye!
