Hello May…

Ah yes, the world’s worst blogger is posting again.


In all honesty, I am not sure why I am such a terrible blogger. Let me tell you a little story! Once upon a time, I owned a blog and I was a fantastic blogger. I updated it almost every other day with stories, crafts, etc. and I loved it. Then one day, I decided I was tired of my domain name and felt that I could come up with something better. So, I let the domain expire, got a new domain and nope. Tried another name, still nada. The inspiration was gone. Flushed down the toilet. Expired. Since that time, I’ve had a really hard time getting my ‘groove’ back, so to say. Maybe it is because I have a mundane 9-5 type job now instead of college? I dunno!

Anyway, that is really the story of my blogging life and possibly why I have not updated recently. Not to mention the fact that I had the winter blues all winter. I did the Lurong Living 2015 Resolution Challenge but, I admit, I half assed it. I could have worked harder, that is for sure. I didn’t though. Now.. there is a 2015 Summer Challenge and I am in heavy debate if I am going to participate. I believe there is only a few more days left to sign up for it and I haven’t yet. I really want to but being that I am not a CrossFit gym member (I cannot mentally process paying $125/month for a gym membership when I can pay $35/month at a regular gym) I don’t get to participate in the CrossFit WODs and so I feel like a failure on that front.

I think it is the overly perky ‘you can do it! Only 10 reps more!’ attitude that goes on. What? You mean that is supposed to be motivational? I am sure it is but while I am struggling to finish my 30th burpee and they are still looking pretty/not out of breath, I just want to hurl a brick at my computer/TV. 

Back to the Kaya Itsine’s workout… it is a book that has 12 weeks of workouts in it that target different body parts. The exercise circuits are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and on Tuesday and Thursday you do low impact cardio like speed walking! It is just photos with instructions on how to do the workouts so I don’t have some super fit goddess telling me to keep going while I yell at them for being so damn perky about my slow death.

I am not following her diet guide though and sticking to my Paleo diet so we shall see how that works out for me. I can say that I did Day 1 Monday yesterday (since today is Tuesday) and damn! You are supposed to do each circuit as many times as you can in 7 minutes and then repeat so that you have 4 circuits so the workout only takes 28 minutes (if you survive that long). I think I will enjoy it. I will obviously give updates on here! Disclaimer: I may forget.

On a note that is not fitness related, meet my new blogging buddy.


Isn’t she pretty? I decided that I needed something to help me blog that wasn’t as distracting as a full fledge computer would be and quite portable so that I can take it places. So far, even though I’ve only had her for a day, I like her. She is zippy enough and has a lovely keyboard and HD screen. So, welcome to the family lil Chromebook. Hope we have lots of good times together!
