Buddhist Dog

Had a simple dinner with Mrs. T at Forture Seafood at Bukit Timah. Mrs. T had fish slice noodles soup and I had Hong Kong Mee.

Still feeling the effects of Bodyweight 500 which I did yesterday. My time is not improving. Finished it in 51 minutes 37 seconds. The afternoon heat sapped all my energy and I could barely complete the workout. Wonder whether I can ever complete it in under 40 minutes.

Love the story about the Buddhist dog below.

NAHA, Japan (AFP) – – Buddhists clasp their palms together to pray for enlightenment, but Conan, a chihuahua, appears to have more worldly motivations.

The dog has become a popular attraction at a Japanese temple after learning to imitate the worshippers around him.

Fitness Journal: Finally Completed the Bodyweight 500

Filed under: exercise — Tags: , , — toru @ 4:16 pm

I finally took on this workout and completed it!  Time was 39 minutes 24 seconds.  And I got to improve on my form for my pull ups and chin ups.  I must try doing it from a full hang.

Fitness Journal: Bodyweight 350 + 100

Filed under: exercise — Tags: , , , — toru @ 2:50 pm

Exercised like a maniac today.  Probably because I was anxious over Mrs. T’s operation tomorrow.  I powered through Bodyweight 350 in 18 minutes 34 seconds.  And then went immediately into Bodyweight 100 which I completed without too much difficulty.  Messed up my stopwatch on my mobile phone (damn!).  So I am not sure what time I came in at.  I am pretty sure it was below 30 minutes.

I wonder why today was much easier.  Was it because I ate a lot of food for lunch (and dinner the night before)?

This Belly Off program is pretty time saving.  Will do Bodyweight 350 + 100 two more times before trying Bodyweight 500!
