Fitness Slump by Craig Kerbrat

Hello! It's time for my weekly fitness check-in! So without any further ado, let's get started.

May 24-30

  • Workouts: 1
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 42
  • Top Steps: 18336
  • Starting Weight: 78.3 kg
  • Ending Weight: 78.9 kg
  • Change: +0.6 kg
  • Total Change: +0.5 kg

So, as the title suggests, I'm in a bit of a slump. Once again I only got in one workout for the week. I tried to get up for the gym a second time later and the week and was just too tired. I know that I need to start getting to bed earlier on night I'm going to get up for the gym, but there's always some reason to stay up late. I need to fix that.

I've been doing really will with getting my steps it. This week wasn't a struggle at all, and most days I beat my goal by a lot. And while this is great, I do know that I need to step it up. Not necessarily with the number of steps, but with the effort put into them. If all my steps are just from leisurely walks, then I'm not really getting the exercise I need. I need to make sure I get the heart pumping with my daily activities.

I think I need to stop putting it off and start my run training again. I keep thinking to myself that it's not a good time 'cause my allergies have been so bad lately, but in actuality they are worse when I'm sitting around doing nothing than when I'm out and about and moving. So I am going to make my first attempt in a while at running later this afternoon. And then I'll just need to keep up the momentum.

And I think that's about all I've got to say on the matter for this week. It's a beautiful weekend and it's time to get back out there and enjoying it!

Fitness Wobble by Craig Kerbrat

Hello! Welcome to Sunday! And it's the Sunday of a long weekend so we're only halfway! I'm taking this weekend to relax and recharge, but still trying to keep up with my fitness goals. Anyway, here's my update for last week!

May 10-16

  • Workouts: 1
  • 10000 Steps: 7
  • Steps Streak: 28
  • Top Steps: 13911
  • Starting Weight: 78.6 kg
  • Ending Weight: 78.4 kg
  • Change: -0.2 kg
  • Total Change: 0.0 kg

Soooo... I didn't get in my second workout of the week. I wasn't feeling great most of the week, so I ended up just sleeping in when I could and wrote off the second workout. I will make sure to get both in this week. I just needed a little break.

My steps have kept up, though. I'm at a 28-day streak for getting my 10000 steps in, and I'm hoping to keep that up. I didn't have as many over-and-above days this past week, but I made sure I hit my goal every day. I had to make sure I got one thing right this week. 

I'm also back down to my original weight when I started all of this. Not that I was ever above by much. It's always been within about a kilogram of where I started. The weather has gotten way better lately, which means I'm more likely to want to go out for a walk/hike/run, so here's hoping more cardio helps me make my weight goals happen. 

Anyway, that's all I've got to say. It's supposed to be a beautiful day, so I hope everyone has an awesome Sunday and a great long weekend!

Supergirl Sneak Peek by Craig Kerbrat

Happy Saturday! I say that in hopes that this day will improve. Not that it's a bad day necessarily. I'm just suffering from mega allergies and I don't like it. Anyway.

Because I'm a giant nerd, I felt like I needed to nerd out a bit about the special sneak peek for Supergirl that came out earlier this week. If you haven't seen it yet, here it is. Watch it. Go ahead, I'll wait. 

Done? Okay, good. I'm not gonna lie, for some reason, this trailer got me a little bit emotional. I'm not really sure why. Maybe it's 'cause I'm feeling a bit sick, or maybe it's just 'cause it's that awesome. In any case, I am very excited for this show to be released in the fall. I hope there's a panel for it at Comic-Con this year...

And let's talk about the casting! Melissa Benoist is adorable as Kara. She's not who I would have initially thought to cast in the role, but she really seems perfect for it. And I love that Chyler Leigh, who played Lexie Grey in Grey's Anatomy, is playing Alex Danvers. I always loved her on Grey's, so hopefully I'll love her in this show too.  And Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant! Very exciting. Not to mention Helen Slater and Dean Cain as mommy and daddy Danvers. I can't wait!

It's funny, I am a diehard Marvel fan, but DC characters make for such great TV shows. I always loved Smallville when it was on the air, and the old Lois & Clark show was great. Gotham, Arrow, and the Flash are all great, and Legends of Tomorrow looks to be a lot of fun as well. So many awesome DC properties have been very successful on TV. So I really hope Supergirl is as good as it looks.

Anyway. There are plenty of other things I could probably talk about, but I feel my mind wandering so I'm going to leave it here. I think it's time to finally watch the season finale of Arrow...
