POUND BY POUND: Day 11 - DailyBurn Glitches

POUND BY POUND: Day 11 – DailyBurn Glitches

Worked up another sweat!

Worked up another sweat!

This is the first time I’ll ever have anything negative to say about DailyBurn

*gasp*

:)

So, I told you about needing to change my time zone on my account. I figured that would be the end of any scheduling issues in my program. However, when I tried to do my workout tonight at around 6PM or so, it said that I was on Day 12, which would’ve been Core 1again. Now, I just did

POUND BY POUND: Day 10 - Right Workout, Wrong Time Zone

POUND BY POUND: Day 10 – Right Workout, Wrong Time Zone

Down on the mat (or the towel) working my core!

So, I just finished my DailyBurn True Beginner workout today, and I realized that there’s been a glitch in my day-counting!When I worked out last night, I did it a little after 9PM, not realizing that my DailyBurn account was set for Eastern rather than Pacific. So it gave me Day 10’s workout on Day 9, because it thought I was working out after…

You thought that I didn’t exercise didn’t you? You thought I skipped a day.

Well, YOU WERE WRONG! :)

I slept WAY in today – my sleep pattern’s been off lately, and I woke up for my alarm at 7am, re-set it for 7:30, then turned it off and fell asleep again, finally waking up for good at around 11:30am. Then, I had a work date with some local lady writers that I’ve…

Don’t “Yuck” Someone’s Charitable “Yum”

Don’t “Yuck” Someone’s Charitable “Yum”

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single creative idea in possession of some mainstream traction immediately becomes a bullseye for detractors. 

So, I’m sure you all have been seeing the ALS “Ice Bucket Challenge”videos flying around your social media feeds to raise awareness and funds to help combat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (aka “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”), a progressive…

OK, so when I do this post late on a Sunday, I’m just calling it the Sunday Digest rather than Sunday Brunch, all right?

POUND BY POUND: Sweating on a Saturday

POUND BY POUND: Sweating on a Saturday

Even on a weekend.

Even on a weekend.

Even though I have a rule about weekend days being unstructured (I don’t set an alarm on Saturdays or Sundays unless I have something specific to do, I don’t have a “To Do” list, I tend to work on my personal projects rather than my paid work), I still wanted to get my workout done first thing. Because as we all know, skipping a day = skipping a bunch of days. Not gonna happen…

POUND BY POUND: Day 5 – Looking Forward to the Next Level?

This is what happens when I have to wake up at 5am for work and I still try to workout before leaving the apartment.

I really did NOT want to work out this morning. Not because of the workout itself, but because I had to wake up at 5AM this morning for an early shift at my day job. I was SO SLEEPY.

But I did it – DailyBurn True Beginner Day 5 – another Core 1day. And do you know what? As I did…
