Anyone who is actually reading this blog (specifically my last post) probably is under the impression that I think I am fat. This is not true. I don't think I am fat BUT I do know that I am not in as good a shape as I was before we left and I would really like to be. The purpose of me writing this blog is to share ideas of what I am doing to maintain a high level of…

I have to admit that I did put on a "few" unnecessary pounds in the start of our journey. What did I expect? I was, after all, working out 3-4 hours a day prior to this. Now, on top of not having access to most of the activities I enjoyed (Jiu-jitsu, Kickboxing, Pole dancing, etc., etc.), I now find myself enjoying one too many sundowners almost on a daily basis and eating far too many snacks (not typically of the…

I don't really have any New Year's Resolutions this year but I am constantly making goals for myself which usually focus around fitness. So what are my 'goals'? Well, for starters, I have some ideas for this blog that I will be working on when I am not off exploring. As for other goals... well, I am making a list (as I usually do) of things I want to accomplish in the next few months (fitness and other). I find…

We are tucked away at an anchorage in the Exumas, Bahamas celebrating my favourite holiday of the year... Christmas! On this occasion, I am sharing this great TRX workout that I came up with and completed this morning. Being the 25th day of the 12th month, I decided to alternate the reps for each exercise between 25 and 12. This workout took me 25 minutes to complete. I rested only 30 seconds between exercises but rest times could be longer…

Plank twist Miami to Bahamas took us 14 hours of motor sailing into 20-25 knots of wind. Mammoth size waves crashing over the bow, at short intervals, made it an unpleasant passage to say the least. Just trying to maneuver ourselves around the boat was laborious enough so there was just no way that a formal workout session was going to happen. That was 4 days ago. Fortunately, we don't endure this kind of weather all the time while we…

When first introduced to the TRX, what seemed like a ridiculously simple strap apparatus, I wasn't completely sold on it. It wasn't until a friend put us through a workout that I came to realize just how this device can make a simple conditioning session extremely challenging with just a few adjustments. The wide variety of exercises that can be done with the TRX makes it fun to work out with (read: not boring). Mike and I have even come…
