It’s been 5 weeks since the kids went back to school and I returned to my old workout routine. Despite my efforts to stay active and work out at home during MCO, CMCO, and RMCO, I felt a significant drop in fitness – especially stamina. I feel like a newbie starting back. Either that orContinue reading “The Return to Routine”
Journey is a place I’ve been wanting to try ever since I knew of its existence. It is the brainchild of Syed Harris Umar, a former instructor from Fly Project, whose classes I used to attend religiously. They were challenging classes but there was an energy to it that I really looked forward to. Evidently,Continue reading “Journey Cycle – Where the Journey Begins”
Forty, Fit and Fed but I haven’t really talked much about the “fed” part. Perhaps it’s time to address it. I guess I should clarify that this is not a blog about diet plans. It’s not about eating clean either. I must confess that when I hear about diets, my brain tunes out. It goesContinue reading “About the “Fed””
A few people have asked me how I stay motivated to workout nearly everyday, especially during a time like MCO. To be quite frank, I have trouble with motivation as well. There are days when I don’t feel like working out. I drag my feet, I procrastinate, and I struggle, too. So how do IContinue reading “Workout Motivation”
Since MCO started, I’ve been using Just Dance on the Nintendo Switch as part of my workouts. At first, I did it because it was one of the few things my knee could tolerate after I injured it. Even after my knee got better, I continued with it because it added variety to my workouts.Continue reading “The Road to Progress”
Two years ago, I wrote about my weight loss journey as I embarked upon my first Spartan Race. It is now two years on so I thought I should write a progress update. You can find the earlier updates on this journey here: My Weight Loss Journey The One Year Review The 18 Month ReviewContinue reading “The Two Year Review”
Some time back, G2 asked me what superpower I would choose if I could have one. I didn’t have an answer back then but I know now what my answer would be – super healing, like Wolverine. I’ve been plagued by so many knee problems lately that I really wish I had that ability. IContinue reading “Old People Problems”
If you’re wondering what happened to my WODs, I’ve stopped them. Too many of them required movements that keep triggering my left knee problems. I’m either doing something wrong or I have defective knees. I was hopeful for a while that I could get back to it after a break and some rest but IContinue reading “Working Out During MCO”

Knee pain for the third day in a row. Nothing is helping. It’s not getting worse but it’s not getting better despite dropping all leg workouts. I was feeling discouraged and frustrated about not being able to work out when my PT from Fitness Achievers sent me this (thank you so much Desmond): The MovementsContinue reading “Home Training with Fitness Achievers”
