My Morning in the Heat

Summer is really starting to feel like it’s here. Taking Rex on his walk, he tuckered out faster than I thought he would. That was okay with me though, I forgot to put sunscreen on and I felt my shoulders burning. After I got him some cool water and some air I decided to do another HIIT workout from Monday. I wanted to do it before the heat became unbearable.

Grabbed my water, and my Ipad and headed to the backyard. Its the only space where I have enough room and don’t feel like I’ll bring the house down with all the exercises. By now it’s a little after eleven o’clock and the heat is making itself known. I’m doing my thing, sweating, keeping up and then it was time for burpees. I have a love hate relationship with them. I did them to the best of my ability but then, I felt it. After a while you start to really know your body and when you push your limits I was doing just that. I heard the slight ringing in my ears, followed by everything becoming muffled. I felt myself getting a little dizzy and tunnel visioned. You guessed it, the heat was getting to me.

Thankfully, I’m able to recognize when my body has had enough. I stopped, let my heart rate slow down, drank my water and got inside to the cool air. After a few minutes, my body began to cool down and get back to where it needed to be. Did I finish the workout? No. That’s okay though. I was a little bummed out, but I would rather be safe than not.

Things to Watch for:

  • Heat Cramps. Heat cramps will feel like more intensified cramps.
  • Heat Exhaustion. The skin will be pale, clammy with excessive sweating. Stop the activity and cool down immediately.
  • Heat Stroke. Skin will be hot and dry, seek immediate medical help. This is very dangerous.

Be careful and stay safe working out in extreme temperatures. Make sure to have a source of hydration accessible. Wear comfortable clothing for you and your environment. Most of all, have fun! I hope my little excursion of the day helps with becoming aware of your body and in a hot environment 🙂 Have fun working out lovelies! 💚

After taking my pup Rex for his walk, I decided I wanted to do a HIIT workout before my Yoga. So I scrolled through YouTube trying to find something with enough intensity but still kind of low impact. I can’t jump into high intensity extreme yet because I still have to watch out for my stress-fracture in my tibia. Her video had low impact exercises to go with every exercise she showed. I absolutely loved that! It allowed me to do the full workout at my pace. Here’s to June and putting my best fitness foot forward!

What are some of your goals, wants and plans for June? Have fun and stay safe out there my lovelies! ❤️

The Hunt

Surprised? Yes

Last night we decided to watch a movie called: The Hunt. The background of this movie is that Elite’s kidnap people that they think did the world wrong. These non elite people had an inkling on what was going on but wasn’t sure. In the genre, they have it as horror, action and thriller…It is none whatsoever a horror movie! They should replace it though with comedy because boy did I laugh during this movie. There are a lot of great funny actors that I think play their part very well for the movie. I don’t want to put a lot of spoilers in the movie except, the main character…She is a badass!


During this quarantine I know it feels like forever. Time doesn’t really mean anything anymore and it may feel like the days never end. Movies do help pass the time which is nice and you can catch up on them. Maybe you may have a bucket list of movies to watch, I know I do. I’m slowly crossing them off as I have movie nights. Make a day out of it, enjoy yourself and take quarantine life to another level. Stay strong my lovelies. ❤️
