Randoms… Mainly About Cardio

I Fucking Love Fitness | My Favorite View

  • I haven’t been writing much because I’m always working. There always seems to be work to get done but I appreciate it because I had 3 weeks of NO freelance work a couple of months ago (first time ever) and I didn’t know what to do with myself. I love working!
  • Maybe that’s a sign I need to learn how to relax.
  • All I want to do is cycle right now but my body needs variety and since I hate running, I’m back on the elliptical again and I’m enjoying it! You can really get an awesome HIIT workout on it and I can vouch because I lost 25lbs from my elliptical-queen phase (okay well, weightlifting should probably take most of the credit).
  • I haven’t had a real workout on the elliptical since #323 in August 2011.
  • I really really love cycling whether it be on a real bike or a stationary bike at the gym. When I plan a cardio/spin day, it’s seriously the highlight of my day and no, I don’t get bored spinning indoors. As long as I have some good EDM to listen to, I’m good to go.
  • You may not believe this but I LOOK FORWARD to indoor cardio. It’s the only time in the day where I can relax and let my mind wander OR get some thinking done.
  • I just did a quickie powerlift day at the gym so that means tomorrow is cardio day. I’m. So. Excited.
  • Cardio is awesome when it’s not a chore.
  • The women’s change room is closed next week (worst news ever) which means I have to be armed with dry shampoo and wipes to avoid smelling like a wet towel at work.
  • The past month I’ve been super bloated from way too much sodium. I make giant pots of soups often so I don’t have to cook dinner for the week. I made Pho for 2 weeks in a row, then Kimchi Stew the last two weeks. I think I will take a break and then do a couple of weeks of Bun Bo Hue in January. 😉 Once I start obsessing over something, I’ll eat it until I’m sick of it!

At 24CARATINC, we teach you to be the CEO of your own life, and how to live it unapologetically and effortlessly.

We are all about doing what you love and staying in your own lane. Extreme self-awareness and curiosity is your biggest superpower. Plant seeds.  🌱

My background is in tech but now I am an expert on productivity-hacking, motivation, accountability, coaching, nutrition, and living a happy yet disciplined and committed lifestyle— and I’ve been doing so “effortlessly” for well over 10 years.

After years of studying and applying this skill we call DISCIPLINE, I’ve learned how important it is to be consistent to inspire others through implementing and cultivating good habits.

This is my journal and honestly I write but I rarely proofread. I don’t have time, and I gave up perfection a long time ago. I have been practicing this art of putting my thoughts on paper (or the web) since my mom gave me my first diary when I learned how to write. Just like my life, this journal is not perfect.

Clipless Confessions

I have a confession. Clipless pedals have induced anxiety before my rides particularly when commuting. I’m fine once I get on the road but the thought
