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
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
Went & looked at my draft of the last kettlebell WO Julia posted. I still don’t want to do it, not even just part of it! LOL. I’d been thinking for a super easy one yesterday, but then decided to take my 2nd rest day for the week instead. I decided to look quickly for something else. I should’ve stuck with my original plan to do … Continue reading Tried a new WO channel – didn’t like.

Normally I’d take a rest day today, but since I’ve got some stuff tomorrow so… Works out better to save it. Decided to write me own HIIT set & then follow it up w/ timed, no-vinyasana yoga. The house is SO COLD right now I was double inspired to exercise, so I could warm up really well before a shower & dressing in much heavier … Continue reading Barely anything but it warmed me up
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
Wearing a weighted vest while jumping rope makes you sound like a maraca. I’d been planning on doing yoga but after yesterday I really needed something more active than what my yoga practice is these days. Michele put up a new one & I don’t have a TRX but I previewed all the moves and they’re all adaptable. I change a lot of stuff in … Continue reading HIIT Workout – I needed that.
I am scary resilient And I’m hearing from my far flung, supportive friends. The support is invaluable. I want to repeat this WO soon & try to improve my time. I prefer older Julia WOs at the moment.
