Ladder Reps, and then HIIT, abs & yoga

“Just a little HIIT” – sing to the Aretha Franklin tune

I was supposed to do an Astanga today, but it’s so damp and chilly inside today, the kind of thing where even in my closed-door office, where my body raises the temperature, it was still only a wet 64º when the HIIT finished. You know when you get cold as soon as your body temp drops just a bit because you’re all sweaty? That. Plus the … Continue reading “Just a little HIIT” – sing to the Aretha Franklin tune

Writing exercise, super blood moon, Gigantic Brewing

Man, I feel creeky and sore this morning, about 100 years old. I had to start taking some dioxycycline again though, for the old dental problem. I felt like writing… I’ve been doing the Abraham Hicks, “Create the Climate” exercise, in the form of tweets, which I screenshot. Was it the 4%? I’ll admit today’s was harder. As of last week, I was supposed to … Continue reading Writing exercise, super blood moon, Gigantic Brewing

(most of) 2019 Weight Lifting 2: Full Body

The start of my new embrace of taking things as easy as I feel was in the late spring and early summer I was working full-time and doing ZGym. To my great surprise, I actually lost weight doing shorter WOs in the early evening and being slightly more careful about my diet. Granted it helps a lot to have a regular schedule, as you can … Continue reading (most of) 2019 Weight Lifting 2: Full Body

How to tame your dragon (reprogram your subconscious)

I keep having dreams of shortage or lack that are worse than my current reality, like having to scrounge up quarters for cups of coffee. And since when are cups of even ghetto coffee just a quarter? That was a couple nights ago. I immediately thought of Abraham Hicks, with its ideas of conscious and subconscious blocking. How do you stop your dreams though? A … Continue reading How to tame your dragon (reprogram your subconscious)

A very satisfying & therapeutic feeling Astanga

Previewed a new kettlebell WO that Julia posted a couple days ago. Wasn’t into that hardcore of a routine then & I still wasn’t today, lol. Only her WOs will I modify for easier! Or in some cases, I minimise current favourites of hers b/c I don’t have the right equipment to make them interesting (hip thrusts). Decided I still wasn’t quite ready for it, … Continue reading A very satisfying & therapeutic feeling Astanga

I was aiming for moderate, but I got way too easy

I got so sore from the yoga yesterday! In a worked and pushed rather than tweaked way, that lets me know I need it more often. Did two sets without any at all preview. (The reasons were that are good. I’m still working on revamping holiday stuff and I didn’t want to take the time away from that to find the perfect set/s. Both the below … Continue reading I was aiming for moderate, but I got way too easy
