Busy
Friday, May 20, 2011      2 comments

That's pretty much it. Thought the worst was behind me, but I guess I'm going to have to just deal with "busy" as a way of life for the next few months. :) Trying to get in my exercise - not doing that makes me antsy. Enjoy your s... Read more
Should overweight/obesity carry a stigma?
Sunday, May 08, 2011      7 comments

I was reading another blog here on SP. One that points out the growing stigma against overweight/obese/plain-old-fat people. And urges all readers to take a kinder, more compassionate view of the larger people they may encounter all too frequent... Read more
Insanity Day 24: Cardio Power and Resistance
Wednesday, April 27, 2011      3 comments

So. Taking a week off from Insanity, no matter the reason? A bad idea. I was terrified that I'd be horribly out-of-shape when I did the workouts again, and Monday was ultra-busy, so I didn't start with Day 22 on Monday. Forced my... Read more
Life + work = A break from Insanity
Sunday, April 24, 2011      3 comments

Yep. Really. I've not done a single Insanity workout this week. Waaah. And yet, that's perfectly okay by me. Work was crazy busy - or at least *I* was crazy busy with work. :) Add to that a 2 to 2.5-hour commute each way, and you'll un... Read more

Insanity Day 18: Pure Cardio AND Cardio Abs
Wednesday, April 13, 2011      1 comments

Okay, finally a double workout. Did them both. Forgot that Pure Cardio takes ZERO breaks after the warm-up and stretch. Yiiii. Worked HARD! Had to strip off my T-shirt halfway through, because it was sopping wet! Gah. My ab... Read more
Insanity Day 17: Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Tuesday, April 12, 2011      1 comments

The workouts continue to work. And so do I. I'm now taking almost no breaks - just a couple on the hardest parts of the floor work. Today, I found myself able to do several of the "Level 1 drill" - burpee, pushups, plank runs, re... Read more

Monday, April 11, 2011      2 comments

After 3 whole rest days (never mind - I had a real pain in the neck!) I was really thinking my Fit Test today would be awful. Here are the results: Date 03/27/11 04/11/11 Switch Kicks 80 114 Power Jacks 36 47 Power... Read more
Don't look over your shoulder!
Sunday, April 10, 2011      3 comments

No. I am not being philosophical and telling you to live in the present. That's a note to myself to not look over my left shoulder. Somehow, while asleep Friday night, I pulled something in my upper back that ONLY hurts when I tw... Read more

Breaking the streak
Friday, April 08, 2011      1 comments

Yep. Skipped Insanity today. Got home late after work last night, was tired, but too wired to fall asleep - wound up awake till almost midnight. And then, wouldn't you know it, my internal alarm wakes me up at 4:30 again. I was just too exh... Read more
Insanity Day 11: Cardio Recovery!
Thursday, April 07, 2011      1 comments

Whee! I always dread this one going in (always??? I've done it exactly ONE time before today!), and initially it totally justifies that dread (lots and lots of staying in low squat position - MAJOR burn), but then the last 6 or seven minute... Read more
