Try something different: UFC Championship

These past few months I am been in a runt in my health and fitness.  I started Hammer & Chisel and lost more weight, but afterwards work stress started to catch up with me.  I have not been in the mood to workout, keep up with meal plan and eat healthy.  I feel like all I want is to be alone.  I feel stressed out =(  I love my family but I just want my me time.

Then I get the comments about how I dont look good.  I look better fat.  I guess I lost too much weight too fast.  Then again this past week I have not been feeling good.

So I use to go to the gym.  I was a member of 24 Hour Fitness when I first was trying to lose weight.  I cancelled this membership and signed up for UFC, but as a new mom and working full time, this gym did not work for me.  I started to workout at home with Beachbody programs.  They were very convenient and help me lose the weight.   I use to work out at 5AM, then got ready and dropped off my daughter to daycare.  Now that I am a charge nurse and work 7AM to 3:30PM, I have not found a good workout time.  I used to work out at 6PM, cook dinner, eat then go to bed by 9PM.  I feel like this routine is not working for me.

So I signed up for the gym again, this time UFC Championship Membership.  This membership allows me to go to UFC at Waiklele or Kakaako, do functional fitness like boxing and Daily Ultimate Training (crossfit style workouts), MMA training, jiu-jitsu, and group fitness classes like Cize, Insanity, PiYo,  Turbokick, Bare, Yoga, Zumba.  I will need to wake up at 4AM, leave my house to get to the gym by 5AM, work out for 1 hour, get ready before 6AM and start work at 7AM.  I think this is possible.  I just need to make the time and commitment.  I love Beachbody, but I need my me time.

The Master's Hammer & Chisel Results

I enjoyed weight lifting with Sagi in Body Beast and Autumn with 21 day fix and 21 day fix extreme so when I heard that they collaborated and made a program together I could not wait to try it!!!

H&C program has 12 different workouts about, 30-40 minutes long and incorporates stabilization, strength and power.  It comes with 21 day fix colored containers with expanded food list and more recipes, no repeats if you have their previous programs.  

January 11, 2016 before H&C
Weight 141
Chest 34
Arm  11 right 11 left 
Waist 29
Hips 34 
legs 19 right 19 left

March 21, 2015 after H&C
Weight 130
Chest 33.5
Arm  10 3/4 left 11? Right 
Waist 28.5
Hips 33.5
legs 18.5 right 18.5 left

This program reminded me of p90x3.  I still enjoy doing the weight lifting part.  I realize I hate endurance training 😳

2016 Great Aloha Run

So I did not get to run the GAR 😐 because baby girl kept trying to get out of her stroller.  She was wanted to run too!!

We had a good time.  Well I will admit, I was not training as much as I like to.

Try something different: aerial yoga

Here are some pictures of my free session of aerial yoga at Samadhi Hawaii.  I want to say thanks to  Yelp Elite Hawaii for this awesome opportunity.  It is awesome to be Yelp Elite because you get invited to free events and food!!!

So today I learned to hang upside down on a silk rope today, super fun great core workout.  Was so much fun, it reminded of my childhood times hanging upside down
