Day 22: Working on my fitness

10 August 2020
They all work out, buy the Housemates do not work out the same.

The Housemates wake up every day, to workout. It is evident that they do not exactly do the same things. This morning's workout was no different, here is a breakdown:

Do you even lift?

We know that there are the Housemates who are literally working on their fitness. You can usually find them running laps around the Arena, doing push-ups and sit-ups on the mats, pushing their bodies physically to build muscles and strength. Usually, you find Praise, Prince, Kiddwaya and Ozo in these positions, switching up between cardio and bodyweight like it's nothing. Today was no different, we watched as the gents pushed and sweat making sure their strength is up, led mostly by Praise and Prince. Today they were joined by Trikytee and Brighto who seemed to be keeping up quite well through the morning, even when Prince proposed a push-up patter that they all knew they would find difficult.

I sure do lift - sometimes

As mentioned, Trikytee and Brighto joined the body lifting action today, though this is not always the case. We cannot forget the day Brighto slept through the workout and gained himself a fine, it was a once-off but notable. The two Housemates seem to have a different schedule to the others, in that they also understand their bodies and will not participate in every activity for the sake of joining. They also mix it up between the mats and the body weight lifting. Today though, they were all in with the body lifting, and that was not an easy workout for anyone that partook. The third Housemate who sometimes joins different workouts as his body moves him is Neo, who today decided to take it easy and bounce on the stability balls with Nengi as they chatted.

Give me a mat, any day.

We also have the Housemates who will definitely join the crew when it is time for workouts on the mats. Dorathy, Erica, Lucy, Wathoni, Nengi, Kaisha, Vee and sometimes Tolanibaj and Laycon get in on that action. The minute the workouts begin, these are the usual suspects who show up. Depending on who is leading, the workout can be intense or light. Needless to say, Priase has done a stellar job of making the workouts fun and today was no different. The Housemates spent a good 30 minutes working out their whole bodies with Praise and though we usually see a dance at the end of the workout, that did not happen today.

Dancing is exercise

Some say that dancing relieves stress because when you are dancing, you are fully in the moments and it is akin to meditation. Apart from the dancing that we have become accustomed to after the workout which Praise usually leads, there are some serial dancers in our group. Number one on this list is our ever-dancing Tolanibaj who is mostly joined by many of the others, mostly Erica, Priase, and Neo after their workouts. There are very few workouts where you do not see Tolanibaj in front of the mirror, dancing away and clearly enjoying herself. This usually leads to others joining her, one by one. Today was no different as we saw Erica jump in and the two ladies have a great time dancing. Perhaps this is what led to the dancing in the House later?

The Housemates have been in incredible spirits this morning, which leads us to believe that today will be a really good day.
