Holly’s High Intensity Low-Impact Challenge, some jump rope & yoga

I’d previewed the first set of this last night & decided right away I’d do my own warm-up. I don’t know what it is, but as much as I hate jumping jacks, that’s how much I love an easy jog warm-up. My shoulders FINALLY feel fully recovered from last Thursday’s WO so naturally, I’m like, Yay! Let’s do it again! Not tomorrow though. It’s time for … Continue reading Holly’s High Intensity Low-Impact Challenge, some jump rope & yoga

Full Body Goals #4 (just an anti depression treatment)

I am so “Meh” today. Stopped by Powell’s on my way home, b/c I was close by and had to pee again. Looked at a few books but got quickly bored b/c I wasn’t going to buy any. When I went to leave it was raining and then I remembered I had some of the Uber gift certificate that H had kindly gifted me with. … Continue reading Full Body Goals #4 (just an anti depression treatment)

(2nd half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, with more yoga

I guess this is a “light” week. Not having a monitor definitely contributes to a “relaxed” attitude! Decided to finish what I started the day before yesterday. Why not right? But I forgot to note my start time. I think maybe it was 65-70 min but only a half hour of that was work. The yoga was mainly restorative. The standing arches I do are … Continue reading (2nd half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, with more yoga

(half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, w some yoga

Previewed some of this recently. I only wanted a short WO today though, and not too taxing – warm it up & stretch it out. I had limited time & wanted to conserve some artistic energy / personal prana. This might sound funny, but both driving and using my oil paints are both so mentally challenging I had to save room for it! I’m still … Continue reading (half of) 2019 Weight lifting #10 CrossFit Tabata & Supersets, w some yoga

Tabata Challenge by Christine Comeau

I swear this one looks familiar – I might’ve posted it in that blog I deleted entirely… That incarnation wasn’t very long-lived. I’d gotten mad at WordPress for effectively closing me out of an old blog with the double authentication and my phone number change, but then I couldn’t deal with blogging on Blogspot again. Total time = 1hr, 39min. I might pay for this but … Continue reading Tabata Challenge by Christine Comeau

(Part of )2019 Weight Lifting Workout #1: Full Body & Glutes

Ended up having a rest day yesterday. Started previewing this last night. Wow! Julia is so crazy fit, lol. Love that woman. But for me? Circuit 2 alone & some yoga would be good, probably. She did circuits 2 & 3 in about 34min, but seriously especially the way I like to work lately I thought 45min – 1hr probably. Adapted from 2019 Weight Lifting … Continue reading (Part of )2019 Weight Lifting Workout #1: Full Body & Glutes

Velvet Buzzsaw & today’s workout

Well… I’ve been a few days without using the Wahoo. I’ve gotta say I am still way less motivated. Like, every time I do exercise it’s an epic struggle just to do anything whatsoever. But you know, I had a healthy slice of lasagna for lunch, along with some buttered spinach I steamed. I kind of want to make cookies… We didn’t get that much snow, … Continue reading Velvet Buzzsaw & today’s workout

Wicked Wednesday Workout by Kristin R

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. She’s using weights more in my availability. Wicked Wednesday Workout by Kristin R “This workout is meant to take just an hour,“. I never even try … Continue reading Wicked Wednesday Workout by Kristin R
