Active Rest Day, and Party Time!
Saturday, October 30, 2010      12 comments

I've come to the conclusion that the "yoga" portion of the P90X cardio DVD makes me impatient. I want to yell, "get ON with it!" at the screen. I prefer stretching to yoga. Sorry, yoga fans. Or maybe I just don't like the parts where he has ... Read more

I'm crying, it just comes out as sweat
Thursday, October 28, 2010      10 comments

Today was a rough one for me. Mostly, I think it was the jump rope. With my shins and calves being a fun source of pain for me on impact, well... yeah. I would have cried, and my face did that crying look, but anything that would have formed ... Read more

Yeah, so I basically have to leave directly after work and sit in hour+ traffic to make it to his evening classes. Today traffic decided to be + instead of just hour, so even though I left at 6, I didn't get to class until 7:40. Luckily, I jus... Read more

Frustration Day
Tuesday, October 26, 2010      7 comments

I won't recount the boring details of tonight's class for 2 reasons: 1. I don't remember them. 2. It was kind of a light class since my trainer is injured and a little out of it. Anyway, I've posted enough workouts that you probably hav... Read more
DIY bootcamp
Friday, October 22, 2010      9 comments

So, today was my little pseudo-bootcamp. Ok maybe it's not completely DIY, since I'm still working with my trainer for 2/3 of it. But it was my decision to do this instead of missing out completely. I took a longer rest after the jog than nor... Read more
Unintended rest day
Thursday, October 21, 2010      9 comments

Today was another unintended rest day. I didn't mind today, since I took the opportunity to nap, and tomorrow I'm doing my own personal bootcamp... kinda. Sunday I won't be able to make it to bootcamp (family obligations), so I'm taking th... Read more

Epic - where's a video camera when you need one?
Tuesday, October 19, 2010      7 comments

So as usual, I started my workout by texting my trainer and asking him what I should warm up with, and this is what I get: Warmup set: Speed rope - 1 min (that's jump rope as fast as you can, which for me is kinda slow) 20 pushups 10 ... Read more
It feels wrong to enjoy Mondays.
Tuesday, October 19, 2010      15 comments

Today was alright for me, though I did come in hungry. At least I didn't get dizzy (until after we finished). I really need to bring more protein to work. What I ate today just didn't cut it. Also, I need to add back in the extra protein I u... Read more
Apparently a short bootcamp

Today, for whatever reason, we skipped the hour long jog in the middle and just went from strenth/conditioning to kickboxing: To start, a warmup jog of 2 laps around the block. Then, we started with the circuit: 50 situps 50 mountain ... Read more
Again with not eating enough
Saturday, October 16, 2010      7 comments

Dammit, it happened. With the last couple of days of not eating enough protein, today's session was trashed. I was dizzy after the first 2 sets of my circuit. Here's what I did go through: Jump rope to warm up, a couple of minutes C... Read more
