We were on our own today for a workout and we ran into a little snag with one of the exercises we were supposed to do. No worries, though – we improvised using different equipment. But then, it was time for the dreaded bike/rower combo…. I have a love-hate relationship with it. I love when … Continue reading “OHS Day 7: Use what you have (Dawn)”
Ryno had his best workout yet(even better than yesterday), and he is surprised that he is seeing positive changes to his energy level this early in the Boot Camp. He also gives you a tip on how to handle eating breakfast if you want to work out early!
It’s Tuesday and we’re checking in with Coach Kilgore to get an update on our progress – and we are making progress. The real test will be in the next few days, when Coach is out of pocket. He’s leaving me and Ryno to our own devices and here’s what he expects to see when … Continue reading “OHS Day 6: Tuesdays with Coach Kilgore (Dawn)”
Ryno finally seems to have figured out his body clock and a workable routine that led to his best workout of Boot Camp, so far. If you have trouble eating before a workout, maybe you should do like Ryno and hold off on eating(only hydrate well) before working out.
Coach Kilgore is pretty sneaky. He’s been training us using movements that we use in everyday life. It became clear to me last week as I played in a golf tournament for Millsaps College. Today was also not just #MotivationMonday, it was #MotownMonday
Our intrepid team members got through their first week of the fitness program and learned some valuable lessons along the way. Ryno especially learned something he takes into week 2. Ryno also had a lot of explaining to do to Dawn for a very awkward moment in his video journal this week. (If you are watching … Continue reading “Webisode 002: Operation Healthy State”
Ryno survived the first week of Boot Camp, and after getting a full night’s rest, he had a better time of the workout this morning. That didn’t stop him from losing out to Dawn in the Cardio Competition, and his attempt at a little “smack talk” fell short of the mark.
It’s the end of week one for Operation: Healthy State. And Coach Kilgore wanted to make sure we went out on a strong note. So we did super-cardio today…including a race between Ryno and me. Battle of the Sexes? Ladies 1. Guys 0.
We’ve been talking about this on The Dugle Report for the last few weeks – violent videos posted on Facebook. In one instance, video of a murder was on the social media platform for two hours before Facebook was alerted and took it down. Today – Mark Zuckerberg announced Facebook was adding 3,000 people to … Continue reading “Facebook hiring thousands to look for violent videos”
Ryno is learning the hard way that running on 5 or 6 hours of sleep(or less) isn’t conducive to a healthy lifestyle. He has worked on moving his bedtime back from around 2 or 3 AM to 11:30PM last night, but he will have to do better for the Operation Healthy State Boot Camp!
We’re three days into the boot camp, and while my shoulders were a little sore this morning (they really haven’t been exercised in months), we did get some good news. Things got a little easier. And Coach Kilgore shares the good things and the things he wants to see get better. Plus – for those … Continue reading “OHS Day 3: Challenges and opportunities (Dawn)”
Nothing is more frustrating when you’re trying to get in shape than seeing those reality shows or fitness magazines where people have these ridiculous 12-pack abs. They didn’t get that way overnight… it took time. And when starting something like this, you must make peace with the fact that you get healthier, one step at … Continue reading “OHS Day 2: Little by little (Dawn)”
