Rheumatologist Appointment

Saturday, May 30, 2015      10 comments

I had an appointment with my rheumatologist on Thursday. He said that my joints all look good, my blood work is excellent and despite my cough, there's no reason for me not to get my Rituxan next Friday and if the nurse has any objections, I'm ... Read more

Tired and Depressed

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      12 comments

So, I had a doctor's appointment yesterday afternoon, which I only got into after a half hour wait in the waiting room listening to serious country and western music. I thought I was going to go mad and kill someone maybe even myself! If anyon... Read more

May Vacation

Monday, May 18, 2015      4 comments

Good afternoon. It's my last day of vacation before returning to work tomorrow. I feel like I slept for most of it and didn't get everything done that I wanted to. Oh well, there's always my next vacation for some of that in July. It... Read more

PiYo - Drench

Monday, May 18, 2015      3 comments

Doesn't that make you think that this is going to be a hard workout? Well, you'd be right; I definitely sweated more for this workout than I have for any of the others. It's not like it's a high impact workout by any means; it's just really in... Read more

PiYo - Month 2

Thursday, May 14, 2015      5 comments

This morning, I started Month 2 of PiYo with a new workout called Sculpt. Sculpt started with a light warm-up (shallow squats and lunges) and then proceeded into a more intense squats and lunges, which included some bowler lunges: Read more

Cough Update

Wednesday, May 06, 2015      4 comments

I know that all of you have been concerned about me and the length of time I’ve had my cough (since February 27) but my family doctor gave me a requisition for a chest x-ray, which I had done on April 27. I received the results yesterday. ... Read more

PiYo - Strength Intervals

Sunday, May 03, 2015      6 comments

Day 21 is PiYo - Strength Intervals, a new to me workout in the PiYo program. It was quite short and started with a lot of lunges interspersed with some cardio like jogging and speed skaters. Then, you do a series of sumo squats, burpees, lung... Read more

PiYo - Buns

Saturday, May 02, 2015      6 comments

Being that it's Saturday, I was going to do two workouts for an hour long session but I slept in until past 10 so since I need to get out and get the shopping done, I only did the one. PiYo - Buns is a new workout to me with lots of squats,... Read more

PiYo - Days 6-9

Monday, April 20, 2015      5 comments

Since last Thursday, I've done 4 PiYo workouts. On Friday, I did PiYo Sweat which is my favourite so far as I can do a lot of the moves, some with modifications and some without and I actually burn more calories, too and it's a longer workout. ... Read more

Cough Update

Wednesday, April 15, 2015      6 comments

I went to the doctor's because I've had a cough for 7 weeks and my friends (real-life and Spark) were worried and kept insisting I go again (I've already been twice) but my lungs are clear and nothing else hurts and I'm not coughing up blood so ... Read more

PiYo - Day 5

Wednesday, April 15, 2015      4 comments

Today, I combined the Lower Body workout and the Upper Body workout for a total of 45 minutes of exercise. It still didn't give me much of a calorie burn but it is what it is, essentially a yoga workout. I found that some of the moves hurt... Read more

Another Rest Day

Tuesday, April 14, 2015      6 comments

I didn't have a good sleep last night so I elected to sleep in rather than doing PiYo. I was coughing for a lot of the night again. Sigh... I thought I was doing better when I was able to sleep lying down for 3 nights in a row without coughin... Read more

PiYo - Day 4

Monday, April 13, 2015      4 comments

Day 4 is called Sweat and so far, it's my favourite as it's mostly standing work like lunges and squats. There were also a lot of balancing exercises like Warrior 3 so I used a chair to help keep my balance with them. There are still a lot... Read more

PiYo - Day 3

Saturday, April 11, 2015      5 comments

Today's workout was supposed to be upper body-focused but there was actually a lot of core work plus Chalene's favourite tricep pushups, which I can only do against the wall at this point in time. There were also lots of planks and crunches. I... Read more

PiYo - Day 2

Friday, April 10, 2015      4 comments

Today was Define: Lower Body. There were a lot of Warrior poses, which are pretty easy, well except for Warrior 3 because I have no sense of balance but I used a chair for it so it was fine. There were also a lot of downward facing dogs and tr... Read more
