chris_de_maas, finds her groove again

Injuries heal and plans (radically) change. But one thing is certain: it's finally time for me to get back on track workout wise. I have barely done anything since I hurt myself in July. I've missed it so badly, I simply can't wait to get started again!

 

We are now in Fiji, so no access to a gym whatsoever; I'll therefore be doing Steve's Body Weight Brigade (Rank 2) workouts.

 

That's it, that's my goal for this challenge, I really just want to find my beloved fitness groove and strength again :) A small side goal though is for us to actually enjoy Fiji. I know it sounds very obvious and silly but we didn't do any exploring at all the entire 3 months we were in New Zealand; we worked like crazy every single day and didn't get to actually see more of Wellington than the organic grocery store and the butchery (it's a very slight dramatisation but it's sadly pretty darn close to the truth).

 

We are still on our honeymoon (1.5 years after getting married but hey, better late than never) and first ever holiday in 6.5 years, so I don't want to spend loads of time on my computer; I'll be working out but probably not posting until the end of the week. That's when I'll start following all of you fantastic people whom I've missed so incredibly much :D

Now, a little update as to what's been going on for the past 2 weeks or so:

 

- I never ended up working out while still on our honeymoon. I really wanted to but Mr De_maas would wake up so late every day (think between noon and 2pm) that I wouldn't be able to workout in the morning and then, by the time he'd wake up, I'd be starving and we'd head out for breakfast. It'd be way too hot to workout in the afternoon. That being said, I did swim every day, I kayaked once (I got seasick from it....!) and I also played pool volleyball for close to 4 hours one afternoon (I was playing along against 3 guys and beat them silly which was incredibly fun!)

 

- 13 days ago, my computer screen decided to die. Just like that. I was browsing peacefully and the screen went black. Fun. It took us over a week, countless taxi rides and stupid sales people to figure out a fix; I'm using a Mac and they aren't very popular here so it took us a while to find a computer store willing to have a look at it. Also my computer is 5.5 years old so I didn't want to pay over US$500 to get a new screen (and wait 2 weeks just to receive said screen + actual fixing time) before I could get some work done. So I am now using a regular second hand screen, plugged into an adapter, plugged into my Mac. Awesome... but at least it works! :)

 

- 6 days ago I got sick. It's insanely humid here at the moment due to the rainy season. Except that, for some twisted eason, it's barely raining at all, meaning the heat and humidity build up to an unbearable point. We didn't have a fan up until a few days ago so we had to use the AC and I got a really bad head cold from it, along with a horrible cough and sneezing feast. Oh and I sound like Batman (not complaining about that at all :P )! Today's the first day I've been feeling like myself again. Hurray! :)

 

- Fiji power sucks! We've been living in an apartment for 10 days now so we're experiencing the real Fiji, not the resort one. And that means we were out of power for an entire 24 hours (and 30 minutes) up until this morning (it's 12:30pm right now). Power'd been on and off for a few days before that but yeah, no power whatsoever for a full day. So no computer for me nor fan to cool us down so yesterday sucked big hairy turtle balls.

 

Hopefully the stars will (finally) align and I can bloody workout tomorrow, for the first time! *fingers crossed*

Glad you were able to pop in. Sounds like your honeymoon was wonderful. Yay for winning at pool volleyball!

The honeymoon was lovely! No computers for either of us (which was a first) and I read a book a day, lounging by the pool. We're not the resort type of people but doing nothing, not even exploring, really felt good.

 

The funny bit with the whole pool volleyball business, is that I was almost drowning half the time; it had rained really heavily the previous day and the water levels had gone up 2/2.5 inches, meaning I couldn't reach the bottom without being completely underwater (I'm only 5'3) most of the time, yet I still beat them! Ha! :D

I'm so glad you're still around! Lounging by the pool and reading a book a day sounds lovely, but I don't know if I could handle the power outages. I hope you get a chance to explore Fiji, and get in some of those workouts. :)
