My Story

Looking And Feeling Good In Spite Of Lupus  
by Irene Lim, President, Lupus Association (Singapore) HGM 2013 / 21st ICG
Year 2000 was a watershed year for me.  I was diagnosed with SLE that year. Ironically, I started the year resolving to work harder and to earn more money.  Unfortunately, increased workload translated into increased stress.  I began to suffer severe migraines almost daily

Hotel Room Cardio

It’s the seasons of merry making and travelling again! While it’s a great time to unwind and to spend time with our loved ones, are you also worried of the guilty indulgences or perhaps just to ensure that you have your daily fix of cardio workout?

Here are some suggested exercises that you can do. No more complaints (or excuses) that you have no time for cardio during your holidays!

The recommended routine is 30-60secs depending on your fitness level for each exercise for a set.

Repeat the exercises for a minimum of 3 sets

High Knees Lift

Stand in an upright position and drive the knees up to hips height

Repeat on alternate knees

Jumping Jacks

Fundamental cardio exercise that you would see in almost all circuit classes

In addition to a great cardio, this is a great way to work the shoulders and hips flexors.

Heel to Butt Kicks

Place palms at the butt and kick up the heels up towards them

Excellent exercise to warm up the knees and to give the calves a great boost

Mountain Climbers

Another move that also work the shoulders and abs while getting an awesome cardio workout.

Be sure to tuck those knees towards the chest to reap maximum benefits from the exercise
