Oops, I Did It Again

February 23, 2015

Well, replace “did it” with “took Britney Spears’ favorite workout class” and “again” with “for the first time.”

A Terribly Awesome Trip Up Jacob’s Ladder

February 18, 2015

Remember the Jacob’s Ladder? Probably not. I’ve only mentioned in once before, in a blog post last May, but it’s a challenging cardio device that’s basically a never-ending ladder. It’s also a Bible story, but that’s a whole different blog post (on a completely different blog).

A New Training Personal Best?

February 13, 2015

Stair race season is in full swing. I’ve already raced twice this year, and my next race is soon, in Detroit! In April, I’ll be racing in the Aon Center in Los Angeles, and they open up the stairwell at certain times for training purposes. That’s how I ended up, the other day, on the 55th floor.

I Clean Up Well, Right?

February 10, 2015

I don’t dress up fancy very often, so I try to take photos when I do. I know for a fact that my mom enjoys seeing them!

I love the sunlight in this photo! I was trying to look mysterious, but it might have come off as a little pained. Whoops.

On Sunday night, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra held their annual gala. It’s the fourth time that I’ve volunteered to help out. It’s a Read the rest of this entry »


The Pros and Cons of Working Out At Home

February 6, 2015

My Bowflex MAX Trainer M5 has become an important component to my workout regimen ever since I got it last fall. Typically, I use it once or twice a week, and rarely on sequential days, because I like switching up my workouts. I prefer not doing the same thing two days in a row, if I can help it!

This week, though, I went on a MAX Trainer bender. I’ve used it four times in the last six days. And it got me thinking, about Read the rest of this entry »

A new month has started. Time to update my weight loss chart! I added my 5-Year Anniversary line and stepped on the scale.

I stayed the same. 247 pounds. It’s always nice to lose, but Read the rest of this entry »


2 Days, 8 Climbs, 320 Floors (Seattle and Portland ALA Fight For Air Race Recaps)

January 27, 2015

rainier-tower-seattleWHAT A WEEKEND. On Saturday and Sunday, I competed in back-to-back stair races for the first time. Just the thought of waking up and doing a grueling stair race, after doing an equally grueling stair race the day before, made me anxious. But it happened. And while I’m glad it’s over, I’m so glad I did it.

The first race was in Seattle, and it was held in one of the most interesting buildings I’ve ever seen. It’s called the Rainier Tower (on the left), and the base is a narrow 11-story pedestal. The building looks like it’s defying the laws of physics. It’s very cool. I’m in love.

My favorite vantage point is just outside the front doors. You look up to see Read the rest of this entry »
