Since about May of last year – I have been completing workouts from videos I have found on YouTube. I first started with Johanna Soh? I believe her name is. 30 minutes every day. Found it wasn’t doing much for me anymore, so then in October I began playing around with the Body Project workouts. Found those to be much more challenging, so I moved over to those.
The past almost 2 weeks I have been plugging along on these workouts from GrowByJo …man oh man do they kick my ass. But totally worth it. I found that I can push myself a bit more with these workouts. That I want to do more than 30 minutes at a time. Hell I have pushed myself to do 90. I find with the walking workouts, I can do more. I don’t need to worry about dumbells or something like that.
Years ago I walked 4km per day to and from Sowden .These workouts are 8km per day, so I figure if I keep these up, I should be able to move onto the right track. Not expecting to become the next super model, just to be in better shape. Just to fit nicely in some old clothes again. Black colored – of course! That will absolutely never change. Not now, not ever 😛
Today I was totally struggling hearing people on the phone. I turned the volume up so high on my phone, that I heard crackling. I don’t know if our system was just borked or what. That and I am sitting near a fan. If I don’t have the fan on, I feel so lightheaded and crappy from the heat. Our house is shit for this season. It doesn’t contain heat very well, and it doesn’t contain cold either. I have a portable AC in my bedroom, and it still doesn’t cool down.
I drank a way too much water today. You know that four litre jug I bought? During the day i drank two full bottles. During my workout, another almost full one. Well today the humidity sucked, so that could be why I am drinking so much water. Besides, it helps the throat.. I also realized though that even though you need extra water, sometimes it’s too much.
I remember doing this years ago. I would drink a bunch of water all the time. The problem with that though is I would forget to eat. Which would of course cause issues. I can’t do that now though because uh… not a teenager anymore …
Back to the workouts. I can’t tell you how amazing I feel when doing these workouts. IT just pulls the stresses of the day off of me. Kind of how I felt when I walked home from Sowden. I didn’t have to worry about anyone or anything. Just me, my headphones – and the weather. I used to walk home from out this way, but with COVID I can’t do that at the moment. Even if I do go back in, I’ll walk home then do this workout. I am really enjoying it.
I am also really looking forward to the new season of Dexter. Really curious to see how things are going to turn out. I keep seeing all the new previews and SO excited. It is one of my all-time fave shows. I kind of wish they would do something like this with True Blood. But with the original cast, minus those which have passed. They plan on doing a reboot of True Blood, but it will not be the same.
Benn has been super cute today. I brought down this set of treats she really loves, and she went absolutely wild. She’s cute. I mean, this cat acts like she’s human. Stands up on two feet and everything.
I have a pile of pictures to go through. I have a apple cord which doesn’t want to work well with my computer, so guessing I will need to buy another one. Once I pay down this cell phone bill – I just might.
I am exhausted .. need sleep. Filters are a beautiful glorious thing. *yawns* night.
