Work it OUT!

EXERCISE…that’s what’s hot!

I kid you NOT, I am the QUEEN of acting on impulse. I found myself pausing the movie I was watching (The Vow -I was really into it), going upstairs and telling dad that I wanted to walk. He told me that I wasn’t ready for that as yet and I should instead use the treadmill. I wasn’t too happy about the ‘downgrade’ but I donned my sneakers and decided to give it a try none the less. I gradually increased my speed till I was jogging. Half hour later I’d burned 82.41 calories and I felt great! Was even able to do a few more other exercises. Once again, dad was quite pleased with me. “Bless him’

Unfortunately, I can’t trust myself enough [as yet] to commit to doing this on a regular basis but WHY the heck not?! It’s just what I need… at least an hour out of my day to be totally occupied while not thinking about anything at all. I know, I don’t want to need to lose weight – I’ve been told that I’m way below my average body mass index or w/e it’s called. I just need to be fit!

The next step is to figure out a decent work out routine and how I can get dad to take me jogging with him (hope I can keep up – he’s an extremist)

Actually no, he isn’t. there’s far worse! I’ve been keeping up (sorta) will a fellow bloggers journey to fitness. She uses the ‘Insanity’ programme.

:O Slight ‘deading’ … Jah know Carla!

My curiousity was piqued enough to find a preview of some sort on youtube.

*Jaw drop* I think I jsut lost the 5 lbs I’ve recently gained [that is another story] by watching that.

If you’re a masochist then bring it!

…[if you] don’t mind working out in a pool of your own sweat….you might be crazy enough for insanity

This is not insanity… I don’t even know what it feels like.

…neither do I luv [and never will] but I’m positive that it sounds like SUICIDE. My heart goes out to those who follow it religiously … I on the other hand shall find a friendlier way to get into shape.

My latest adventures have seen me doing much more exercise than usual. I’ve been walking for half hour and on Thursday I did what feels like a 15 min walk [wasn’t timing it] to get to a river and felt the burn while trekking up steep inclines. By the time I got back to my room, I felt like my heart was about to explode and I was on the verge of collapsing. After I cooled off though I felt fantastic; almost fantastic enough to take an ice cold shower. ALMOST.

Wish me luck as I continue on my road to fitness! Oh, I actually made a lil’ video while walking one day but I HATE how I sound so  deleted it 😛 VLogs are NOT for me. Also, I’m still sorting through photos that I took before the tragic passing of ‘Nikey’. It’s a bit hard to look at them as I’m constantly reminded of the fact that I will have no more awesome photos for a while unless you my dear friends would be kind enough to help a sistah out! *Wink, Wink*


Treadmill – the only thingI  know to date that lets you feel like you’re going nowhere, when in the end you’ve really gotten a far way off from where you started.

Insanity – Without a doubt, only for persons who have absolutely lost their minds or would like a fast way out of this crazy world!
