Cough Update

Wednesday, April 15, 2015      5 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

PiYo - Day 1 is in the books

Thursday, April 09, 2015      6 comments

Day 1 is in the books. The first DVD in the program gives you the fundamental moves. I could do most of them with modifications but the ones that still trip me up are the ones you have to do on your knees. I can't put any weight on my knees beca... Read more

Choosing a Workout Program to Do

Monday, April 06, 2015      4 comments

BLC27 is almost at an end and I'd like to do one of my 4 workout programs between rounds (BLC28 starts May 20) but I don't know which one I should do. So I thought I would post here which ones I have with descriptions about each and maybe you c... Read more

Downer - The Linkin Park/Rise Against concert that I was looking forward to going to and for which I've had tickets since November has been cancelled due to one of the band members breaking his ankle during a concert, continuing the concert and ... Read more

Super Hero Strength

One day when I was 4 and my sisters were 2 (M) and a baby (less than a year), my 2-year-old sister and I were playing in the backyard and my mum was inside with the baby. I got busy doing something (don't remember what) and next thing I know M ... Read more

Weekend in Quebec

Tuesday, September 23, 2014      2 comments

I've returned from my weekend away. I managed to exercise for an hour for 3 of the 4 days of the BLC26 weekend challenge and got 119 points with one of the 25 point bonuses for doing part of the fit test. The only part I didn't do was the 1 mi... Read more

Reflections on BLC25

Sunday, July 20, 2014      3 comments

BLC25 ends this Wednesday and I've got to admit that it hasn't been my best round. The good part is that I haven't gained much if any (final weigh-in is on Wednesday). The bad part is that I haven't lost anything either (at least not yet). ... Read more
