April Fitness Challenge - comme ci comme ca

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      3 comments

Results/Reflections: Well, I did not lose 5-10 lbs., only 1 lb, which is nice but not fast enough progress for me. Looking back at the month, I realize that even though I did reach my goal of 1500 fitness minutes, went over, in fact, there were ... Read more

Relax! Don't do it!

I have been absolutely lovin' the TF! But lately I've been a bit disappointed in my calorie burn. My HR has been around 166-168 when I do Turbo Fire, which is definitely pushing myself yet pretty comfortable for me to sustain for longer periods ... Read more

So, I did my first 5k yesterday. 38 minutes - great for me since I must be the slowest runner on earth! I just had the goal of 40 minutes so I was actually pretty thrilled at my time! I just kept it slow and steady. I paced with an old man for ... Read more

Bikram Schmikram

Wednesday, November 09, 2011      6 comments

So I tried Bikram last night for the first time per my November goal. Definitely not for me. My heart was racing the whole time and my hands were tingly and going numb. All my poses suffered because I was just trying to keep from passing out. I ... Read more

5k Training

Wednesday, October 12, 2011      3 comments

I am no runner. I used to tell people that you'd never catch me running. It's painful, not fun, and it makes me feel like ralphing! And then some subtle changes have been occurring since August, when I made the commitment to being healthier... Read more

Pirates invaded Long Beach last weekend and yours truly was one of the scallywags running amok! Working faires is always super tiring and super fun! We worked three belly dance shows per day and had a blast. I love seeing all the kids and the co... Read more

I'm on my third week of the Turbo Fire program and I'm feeling pretty fatigued. My body feels week and achy. I felt great the first two weeks but this week I'm seriously dragging, even after taking Saturday and Sunday off because of a sinus inf... Read more

Becoming a Pre-planner

Wednesday, August 17, 2011      0 comments

Monday was rough so I didn't get a chance to do my workout. I could have avoided this misstep by a little pre-planning. But I am taking note of that, learning from it, growing, moving on! So, Monday was my rest day instead of Wednesday, that's a... Read more
