Took a few days off cos my sleep had been like 2-3 hrs a night and that's "no Gouda" for breaking down muscle. I'm already broken down! Slept 7 hrs last... Read more

Push 3
Sunday, November 22, 2015      2 comments

Whoa! This is the 3rd strength training workout of the Push Circuit, which asks you to go even heavier cos you can fail at 6 reps. I got to do my old FAV exercise, which is (forgot actual name) when you're lying down and move the weight totally... Read more
30 Day Push Challenge --again!
Thursday, November 19, 2015      1 comments

I was in the beta group, before the book Push was published and hit the NYT Bestselers. It afforded me some real personal growth. That was in 2011! I've been listening to year-old Chalene Johnson podcasts (The Chalene Show) and have been amaz... Read more

Saturday, November 14, 2015      2 comments

Whew! Okay, kinda confusing for ppl who don't know the programme but if you go back this week and read Week 4, Burn Circuit 1 (ONE), there's a few sentences in there that explains the programme, which is marked by INSANELY SLOW MOVEMENTS. ... Read more

Tuesday, November 10, 2015      1 comments

I am an old CE fan who had a lot of distractions but I can stick with CE (therefore, see better results) than with any other BB programme I've done over several years. That's not to put others down! For me, CE is totally doable yet challenging. ... Read more
Perfect is the enemy of good

Quoth Voltaire. Many years ago, in one of my Psych classes, I learnt that Perfectionists aren't perfect. We're self-hating, stagnating or shoots-ourselv... Read more
ChaLEAN Extreme: 3 weeks down
Sunday, November 08, 2015      3 comments

I am so stinking sore and not in the good way! I overdid it yesterday but it felt good at the time. I almost too today as a rest but it's the short anaerobic wo, not strength, so I opted in. I did not take it easy because about an hour before s... Read more
Evening exercise BEST?
Saturday, November 07, 2015      6 comments

Obviously, whenever you CAN do it is best compared to not. Also, I think it's 100% what works for an individual. But how many times have we read AM workouts are best of the best? Let me add, when I think of the SCORES of times widely held 'fa... Read more

I was sort of ticked at myself (after hoping I could maintain NOT being for taking a full rest day) because I had trouble sleeping, which isn't new to me (insomniac since I was born--I'd just lie in the cot, kicking my feetses). When I did ... Read more
