Thursday, May 23, 2013      16 comments

I finally got the courage up to make a video of myself dancing the hula. It's just a practice session - I'm not all dressed up in my hula costume or anything, but it was good to practice making a video. Someday I will make a more "professional... Read more

I usually work out to my Beachbody and a few other non Beachbody DVD's, but this summer I've been taking a bit of a break from them and doing outside activities to pump my heart up and get my exercise in. "Workouts" such as mowing my lawn - it ... Read more

My Vibrams are so comfy!
Friday, May 13, 2011      13 comments

I've been wanting to buy these Vibrams for quite a while now. I like being barefoot or in sandals, flip flops and the like (next best to being barefoot) and I think shoes are confining! Growing up in Hawaii had us running around barefoot a lot... Read more

This is the last week on this round. It's a Recovery Week and no strength training is scheduled, but I might just stick some in for good measure - seeing as I was off with my sore back for a couple weeks...or was it 3? Anyway, yesterday was a ... Read more

Monday, October 18, 2010      1 comments

My back is still not feeling 100% healed. It hurts at different times, and especially if I'm sitting too long in one spot and if that spot is not level. Anyway, I thought I would give it a try and do TF on Saturday. I did Sculpt 30 and HIIT 2... Read more

Not a Turbo Fire blog. :(
Monday, October 04, 2010      5 comments

Well, I had a hard time getting out of bed and moving around this morning. So much so that I decided to listen to my body and not do any TF workouts. Instead, I took another hot bath which seemed to help and then I stretched and tried to get m... Read more

Day 5/Week 10 Turbo Fire
Friday, October 01, 2010      1 comments

Today I woke up and felt fine, but at one point where I bent just a little by my desk, my lower back felt sore. I thought I might have overdid it on the jumping or something yesterday. It got worse as the day wore on. I drank some Recovery Dr... Read more
