Saturday's workout

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I was deciding between a cardio ballroom workout and a pilates/barre fusion workout for today. I started my workout at 2pm and it was so hot! I finally decided on the 2nd DVD as I was feeling a little dizzy and mat work appealed to me.

It's the first time I'm doing this DVD though I've watched it through once to make sure it's a good quality DVD with no problems. It's from Leah Sarogo, it's called Ballet body Core workout or something like that. All I can say is : "Oh! My abs are hurting!!!!" during the workout. But now I feel a little tired, but a good sort of tired, though I'm not sweating as much as I would if I had done the cardio ballroom one. But I'm sweating already bcoz of the heat and I didn't fancy so much sweating today as the weather is sooo hot these days!

I might do the cardio ballroom one tomorrow evening, but not in the afternoon. I had to exercise in the afternoon today bcoz I have Bible study this evening. I didn't have lunch today bcoz I'm still full from breakfast, I had one of my Mom's homemade tuna puffs. I'll be having dinner with the bible study group tonight anyway, so I'm keeping my appetite for that!

Well, I'm going for my shower now and I will be getting ready for my Bible study!

Cheerio!

    Sounds like a great workout. Good call not doing cardio if you were hot and tired. I've done a couple Pilates and barre videos on spark people. Those are tough. A good tough.

I hope you have a great weekend! emoticon

    I went to the store for 3 items yesterday and only got 2 of them which meant that I had to make another trip. Senior moment in my case.

Toning today!

Sunday, June 09, 2013

Well, I had a blast doing that cardio ballroom DVD yesterday. My lower body is still a little sore today so I did a 20 minute upper back toning workout, and 15 minutes of ab and leg toning workouts. So, like 35 minutes altogether. I didn't sweat as much as yesterday but boy! am I feeling it now!

I just started exercising again even though I haven't truly shaken off the osteoporosis yet (long story), but I can't wait anymore, the exercise HAS to start. I'm hoping to tone my abs and get rid of my little love handles! yuck! love handles!

So, I have dialysis tomorrow, so rest on monday, I'll do some more cardio on Tuesday. Will see!

My New Haircut

Saturday, June 08, 2013



This is a pic of me after the new haircut. It's a little shorter and much neater now. I know you can't really see the layers becoz I was too lazy to blowdry it! I miss the length but I don't have to bother putting it up all the time now. The weather is soooo hot, it's crazy!!!!!

Some of my SP friends have been asking for a pic, so here it is!!! What do you think?

My Dad's fish is staring at me! LOL!

I wear mine long, never did know why folks think of long hair as more work. I find it is less. A trim once or 2ce a year, and it's just wash and go. No styling, no curling, no nuttin'. emoticon If it's hot I put it in a pony tail, or up with a clip. Less than five min. and I'm good to go. Those ladies that go and get perms and curl their hair are wearing "old lady" hair (I know, I'm awful!) I'll be wearing my long, easy care hair until I die, I'll be one of those weird old ladies. Yup, I'm a strange one so just chalk up the "old lady hair" to that. LOL.

    I cut my hair impulsive on Friday. ALL off (not completely bald). Two years ago, I had hair your length, but in the last year,I've progressively gotten shorter and shorter... In the heat and humidity, it's easier to take care of. I love long hair but don't have the patience for it... :) Looks great on you!

I still hurt!!!!

Thursday, June 06, 2013

I've already started my exercise program even though I still hurt from my osteoporosis. I got osteo despite my young age (well, not really young, but still too young from osteo problems) bcoz of complications from being on dialysis for about 9 years.

Dialysis can only do so much, but cannot remove all the toxins that my failed kidneys can't remove. Added to that fact that I haven't really been following the renal diet all that closely. I do try but sometimes, my fave food just calls to me. I try not to overeat the foods I shouldn't eat, but to deny myself completely, it's just so hard!

The foods I should limit or be forbidden from are too numerous to mention here! Life would just be torture if I can't eat my fave foods! As a matter of fact, I'm ready to go whenever The Lord Jesus decides it's time to go. If He appeared before me now and said : "Come!", I will go! I'm just so sick and tired of this life! I won't commit suicide though, it's a sin. So, I'll keep waiting for Jesus to call me home!

Back to my exercise, I HAVE to start exercising again becoz I'm getting flabby and my gut (stomach problem) is coming back! Despite my bones aching, I HAVE to start exercising again. Even if I still hurt, I have to push myself! I have no choice! I won't be fat!!!!

    I'm sorry about the illnesses you endure and about how they affect you. Maybe there is a support group in your area that can help dealing with the issues.

I hate to think of you as suffering or being unhappy. Your post sounds as if you are so sad.

Please look for some uplifting things you can do and maybe your doctor can suggest some things to alleviate some of the symptoms.

    I'm so sorry to hear about the osteoporosis and the pain it is causing you! Has your doctor advised you on an exercise regime to help you? I hear that walking and certain strength & flexibility training exercises can help minimize the symptoms or at least prevent them from getting worse.

    Can you focus on swimming? I know it gets really hot there, and swimming is great low-impact! You can even do AquaZumba! Aquafit too! They're tons of fun, and much easier ont he joints!

    Slow and steady wins the race! Keep at it. Any activity, no matter how small is good activity!

Try smaller portions of those forbidden foods so you do not feel deprived. Take a few bits, then throw it away or package it up quick and go for a walk to distract yourself.
