(Pooped out during a) Manmaker Timer Challenge

This popped up in my video feed and it’s a shorter Julia WO. I started & found out I really wasn’t quite up for it. That’s ok. Although, now I probably really SHOULD take a rest tomorrow but it’s New Year’s and I’ve got no other real plans. How can I not exercise? I was thinking to try to paint downstairs, but it’s been so … Continue reading (Pooped out during a) Manmaker Timer Challenge

I’m really, really glad 2018 is over

Some good things did happen. In only five shows as an adult Theodora won best shorthair Scottish Fold in the world, TICA’s last season, which closed at the end of April. And then I started a new job, and got my license, despite hearing so many times while practicing how this or that would result in a fail. I was so convinced of this I … Continue reading I’m really, really glad 2018 is over

Wow, no full Astanga since December 5th!

I could tell I really needed some LBH, or leg-behind-head, which refers to a bunch of poses in Astanga’s primary, 2nd and 3rd series. I never got to the LBH in 4th, because patriarchal bullshit, lol. Also the chronic, no-fun injuries, of course. I wish I could get myself to do more “extra” stuff, but getting myself to practice at all is hard enough. I ought … Continue reading Wow, no full Astanga since December 5th!

Driving, food, cat breeding

Here’s some random stuff b/c I’m still caffeinating and I don’t feel like getting on to anything else. I drove to a vegan pizza place yesterday, to meet my friend. I’m such a freak that I can’t like wait until someone’s hungry. She’d run some errands and had some food already. I was pacing around my rooms in Hill House, growing increasingly nervous. I’d cancelled … Continue reading Driving, food, cat breeding

BodyRock HIITmax week 11, first 4 sets, a burnout, & some yoga

My quads are aching in bed this morning & I could feel ’em just sitting at my computer, having my morning coffee. So intention for today was something light & easy. Just move & have a good time & use whatever equipment is handy, when you’re previewing the moves. Lisa is always one move ahead, so you see what she’s doing & can decide ahead … Continue reading BodyRock HIITmax week 11, first 4 sets, a burnout, & some yoga

Well I figured out how to set my new plyo box at 16″ anyway

I was SO excited to see a big box on the front steps last night. Got this hefty piece of equipment out of the box and up the stairs immediately. Looked at the manual this morning & set it from lowest to 16″. Then I stood in front… Will I be able to jump on it? I’m not even sure!! This is the same one … Continue reading Well I figured out how to set my new plyo box at 16″ anyway

Yoga & HIIT again

OK I’ve gotta aim for a 5-days consecutive exercise run, b/c I missed the two at the beginning of the week. That means I’ve gotta pace myself! Was feeling yesterday’s WO a bit in my triceps (excellent) & the general need to stretch here and there, this morning. Astanga yoga, Suryas & Fundamentals Warm-up: This time I decided to do my 4min jump rope: 10/30×6, … Continue reading Yoga & HIIT again
