Wednesday, August 10, 2011      1 comments

I've been doing Insanity for three weeks now so I thought I'd share some thoughts on the program so far. I actually missed four days because of a road trip so I'm a little behind on the workouts. Anyhoo! My randome notes: -My average heartr... Read more
Days like this
Wednesday, July 27, 2011      4 comments

There are days when I wake up feeling like I could take on the world, and then there are days like this where I have to convince myself not to crawl back into bed and pull the covers up over my head. Usually I can count my workout to pull ... Read more
Insanity- Pure Cardio
Monday, July 25, 2011      1 comments

Length- 38 minutes Calories burned- 341 Average HR- 155 Max HR- 177 This workout was similar to the first one except there were no 30 second breaks. I was actually pushing as hard as I could but my HR took longer to get into the zone... Read more
Insanity- Cardio Recovery
Sunday, July 24, 2011      2 comments

Length: 33 minutes Calories burned: 134 Average HR: 105 Max HR: 138 The title of this workout is misleading. It's not a cardio workout, it's stretching, yoga, calisthenics. The only hard part was holding squats and lunges. I hate tha... Read more

Length: 39 minutes Calories Burned: 364 Average Heart Rate: 151 Max Heart Rate: 181 Almost the entire back of my body was sore today, but my calves were so sore I didn't know if I was going to be able to do the workout. I dogged it ... Read more

This workout is 41 minutes. Calories Burned-- My HRM slid down to my abdomen about 8 minutes in and i was in a hurry to get it restarted and forgot to look at calories up to that point. In the last 33 minutes I burned 317 calories so I est... Read more

Insanity arrived in the mail today and my husband and I did the fit test after dinner..(maybe a little too soon after dinner.. heh) The fit test is actually a pretty good workout on it's own. I burned about 223 calories in 25 minutes and m... Read more
The calm before the storm(or where I've been)

The way I remember it is this... I got really sick and didn't work out for two weeks. A funny thing happened in those two weeks-- I stopped being sore and I realized it was the first time in over a year that some part of my body was not sore. I... Read more
Has it really been a year?
Thursday, July 14, 2011      2 comments

Has it really been a year since I was here? I'm just going by the last blog entry. It doesn't feel like it's been that long since I hung out here but who knows? Time flies, but I seem to remember that I stopped coming here after I got sick last... Read more
Hello new day!

Some days I just wake up with a feeling of possibility about how much I can accomplish in a day. Today is one of them. I stayed up way too late reading last night and only convinced myself to go to sleep by promising myself I could finish... Read more

I have weeks when I love to workout and have to keep myself from working out more than twice a day and weeks when I'm dragging myself to get started and using any means to try to find a way out of it. I thought this was going to be a dragging w... Read more

Let the price wars begin
Saturday, July 03, 2010      3 comments

This has absolutely nothing to do with health or fitness, I just happened to notice that the price of Sony ereaders had dropped at Borders. The pocket edition is now only $150 and the touch $170. I saw the Kindle had dropped to $190 last week. R... Read more
Resolution check-up #2

1. Learn to speak Chinese-- No Progress. Maybe I should give up on this one for now. It's just not that motivating for me when I have so many other things I need to learn for school. I feel like my learning capacity is taken up. 2. Reduce... Read more

A few weeks ago I weighed 132. Then I went on a two week junk food bender and my weight went up to 135. I stopped eating junk and the next week I was 136. I figured it was getting close to that TOM and it was just water so I didn't worry. This l... Read more
