Tired and Depressed

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      10 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

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
