Heart Rates and Other Measures for Fitness

I’ve been tracking my heart rate during workouts for some time now and it has always troubled me how high it is when I work out. When #FMR sees my heart rate stats, he gets cross with me because he thinks I’m going to have a heart attack while working out. That’s probably because heContinue reading “Heart Rates and Other Measures for Fitness”

My Weight Loss Journey

A number of people have remarked about the weight I’ve lost over the last year so I’ve decided to share the story… Most of the changes took place over six to seven months from October-November 2017 to April 2018. I should also mentioned that even though this post is labelled “my weight loss journey”, weightContinue reading “My Weight Loss Journey”

Running Fitness – Tracking Progress

It is important to stop every now and then to take note of progress because it inspires us to keep going. This is especially so when the journey feels pointless. I never used to record my workouts because I didn’t see the point of it, but ever since I started using activity trackers, I haveContinue reading “Running Fitness – Tracking Progress”

Fitness Training and Aerobic Improvements

Over the last year, I have logged a significant amount of time training for events. I’d like to think that my fitness has improved since I first started. I wouldn’t know for sure because I didn’t take a fitness test before I got on this journey. Based on my gut-feel, I don’t think I haveContinue reading “Fitness Training and Aerobic Improvements”

Back on the road after the Spartan Sprint in Semenyih with the IJM Duo Highway Challenge.

Zumba Babes at a Charity Zumbathon

One of our very own Jungle Babes organised a Zumbathon charity event at MyTown Shopping Center in support of those fighting the battle against cancer. You’ll Never Walk Alone Just like the title of this event, we couldn’t let her walk alone, so here we were… …busting a move even when some of us didn’t haveContinue reading “Zumba Babes at a Charity Zumbathon”

Mech-Warriors in Cross-Training

After reading Spark, I decided it was high time that I took the boys’ physical training to the next level. Our focus for G1 was to improve his overall fitness for health reasons because he’s been allergic to physical exertion since he was little. For G2, I was inspired to build his physical fitness afterContinue reading “Mech-Warriors in Cross-Training”

We’ve traded the Apple Watch for the Garmin Fenix 3 HR which has someContinue reading “Activity Tracking with the Garmin Fenix 3 HR”

Tales from a Flycycle Neophyte

Ever a glutton for punishment, I went back for my second dose of pain at Flycycle. I even got a poser picture for the memories because I am never ever coming back… …except, of course, that I will. Didn’t I just say I’m a glutton for punishment? I was all prepared to take another beating and crawl homeContinue reading “Tales from a Flycycle Neophyte”
