After my two weeks of Chloe Ting’s shred, I was feeling strong and invincible… that is, until I went home. It seems that old habits die hard.

Yes, Just 2 Weeks of Working Out Can Change Your Body

What started as a ‘what if’ joke between my sister and I abruptly came to an end about five minutes into Chloe Ting’s Two Week Shred Challenge, when we were swimming in puddles of sweat and wondering if we could possibly survive another 13 days.  Are YouTube workouts usually this hard?

Today I saw a full body mirror for the first time in over three months. Since changing apartments in February, I have been living in a place without any mirrors besides my phone and a small hand mirror.

I’d say I’m just about to get started on day seven of my attempt to complete Chloe Ting’s Two Week Shred Challenge, but I’m going to replace that with STRIDING into day seven. I feel good! Make no bones about it, Chloe Ting absolutely wrecked me the first few days. I looked like a worm […]

While Netflix might be making a few extra million dollars this month, not everyone has had such positive experiences during the pandemic.

Being in quarantine has made me realize that I need to change the way I view and treat my body. Obviously, we have a lot of spare time on our hands right now. I’ve been trying to use some of it to work out, but I’d be lying if I said that my fridge hasn’t […]

Being inside so much lately, I’ve had a lot of time to make some long overdue phone calls. There’s been one common reoccurring question: What is life like over in Thailand, living on your little island, during all of this chaos? The answer: surprisingly peaceful.

5 Days of Meditation: Day 4 – Calmness During Corona

A few months ago, heck, even a few weeks ago, I thought news of the Coronavirus would blow over in the same way that so many attention-seeking stories do. Little did I realize that what I thought was the peak of the pandemic was only just the beginning.  Borders are closing, entire cities are shutting […]

5 Days of Meditation: Day 3 – A Beach Walk

After running some errands this morning, I decided to walk home along the beach. The island here (Koh Tao) is quiet, with tourists returning home to be with their families and take care of themselves as the Coronavirus continues to spread around the world.
