Default ^^^^clean & tidy tuesday^^^^

Morning girls,

Robin & Kate thanks for the info re: STS. I think I might hold off for a while. I'm still pretty strongly considering CLX. Probably after the new year.

This morning I'm off to take the girls to school and then to that women's coffee at the church. Ryan's home again. This stomach bug is really bothering him.

This morning was CCB - day 2 of rest week. I actually like this WO - it feels "normal."

I'll be back later. Goal for today is no random snacking - just my 5 meals - 1500 cals.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Today's a rest day but I'm going to do Cardio (probably a CC) and abs.

Happy Tuesday !

Morning Angie & other C&T Lovelies! Sorry I never made it back last night - life is a bit crazy right now!

Angie, re: STS.... I think it's a great program - for certain people. Chris and I paid the presale price which is waaayyy cheaper than it is now - I'm not sure I would pay $300+ for it. And based on what I know about you and what your body responds best to, I'm not sure it makes sense for you. Maybe consider purchasing Meso 1 by itself.... Doesn't your body respond better to higher reps/lighter weights? Have you ever really given it a go with the GS series? My favorite rotation of all time is the fall/winter 07 lower body one from FF - my body looks SMOKIN' by the time I am done with that one! Did you end up ordering S&H?

Nina - LOL - you ran 17 miles on Sunday, I ran 17 miles last week!!

Anne - how is the condo? How was tap?

Kate - LOL at your baked potato!


Eats were sooooo go yesterday, no cheats. I tossed and turned a bit last night, but I feel pretty rested this morning so hopefully the day goes well. Off to the TM - 4.5 miles on the agenda!


PS - lots of questions about how my injury is doing lately... I would have to say that my pain/discomfort is almost NIL these days. I am a true believer in PT - it really works!

Angie, 1500 cals is not a lot..... I'd be starving, I'm sure of it.... If you need some more food, if you REALLY ARE HUNGRY, please eat! my soapbox now.
Enjoy your ladies tmie - sounds great!
Hope Ryan gets feeling better. Is he still doing Insanity?
The girls going off to school well? No drama?

Becky, It's hard to take true rest days, isn't it?

Katie, Good job on the eats yday!
Glad the PT worked so well! Great news!
Have a great run today!

Cardio and Back for me today. No plans for the day - just normal SAHM stuff.
I'm afraid Julia is getting sick. She was up 3x last night and so stuffy she could hardly latch on to nurse. Boo.

bbl....gotta go start my chores!

Up early cause Nevena starts preschool today! What am I going to do with three hours to myself twice a week?! Dance went well last night, thank goodness. Tonight we go from 5:15-6:45-I'm hoping Danica can bum a ride with the neighbors and I'll bring Milla later. Had a salad for dinner and a small bowl of cereal before bed and my weight's up!! Grrr. I'm really mad at myself for eating so poorly and worried that I won't be able to get the pounds off. Today is P90X Chest and Back and abs. Will do it later this morning.

Angie, I'll share your goal! Hope Ryan feels better and you don't get bit by the "bug"!

Becky, what cardio are you doing? I can't wait for Shock Cardio to come out!

Katie, you should become a trainer! You are so knowlegeable in all thinngs fitness! Glad to hear your injury is on the mend. Happy running!

Kate, poor Julia I hate when they can't breathe. Working out this afternoon?

Morning to all! Gotta get the ladies up and at 'em!

ohh klaudia, enjoy your quiet time! i am jealous. what are you doing for dinner on these late nights? don't fret about the scale - stay off it for 4-5 days and just eat clean. easier said than done, i know.

angie, stay healthy!! 1500 cal seems so low to me, but do whatever your body responds to.

kate, enjoy a quiet day. are you on a 1bp per day rotation?

katie, so glad you have no pain. enjoy your tming. i was outside this am, and it was so nice despite the humidity. gotta get a new tm soon....

robin, happy bday jaz! that is crazy she is doing drivers ed.

hi becky. i need to try some cardio coach.

hi lisa - aidan too is into everything, and he runs everywhere now on the shortest little legs. cracks me up!

i had a great long run this am. we are off to the zoo this moring. i need to do back, bis and maybe shoulders later. goal today is to keep snacking at bay and cals in check. i want another clean day!! bbl

Morning, glories! I was on FB yesterday and I found some old girlfriends of mine that I used to row with. We all rowed together in a local club, but then we all moved away. I came back, but they didn't. Anyway, two of them are in Portland, so I'm going to try to see them while I'm out there. Should be fun!

I went by the condo last night and the previous owners are so sweet--they left me a bottle of wine and two wineglasses. Isn't that nice? I'm going to send them a thank you note. Of course, it depressed the heck out of me, but oh well. Tap helped me feel much better. There are 3 new people in the class and they all did really well so I hope they stick with it.

Kate, is Julia still stuff up? Poor little peanut. I hope she feels better soon.

Nina, I love the zoo. Is there a petting part where the kids can touch the animals?

Klaudia, what on earth are you going to do with time to yourself? May I suggest a self pedicure? That's one of my favorites. And I love your buffalo dip recipe. Does it reheat well? I may have to try that next weekend.

Robin, Happy Birthday to Jaz! Are you worried about her starting to drive or just amazed that she's old enough? Hopefully, the latter!

Katie, I'm so glad your PT is working. Are you enjoying the half marathon training?

Becky, what are you up to today?

Lisa, your schedule is very busy indeed! I hope you get some me time in there somewhere!

Hi Colleen!

Has anyone heard from Steph? I miss her.

So, I'm moving next Tuesday. I'm off work all next week and I thought I would need time to clean, but that place is spotless. Seriously, they left it in pristine condition. I'm not surprised given how anal they appear to be, but still, it's really nice that they did that. One less thing to worry about, kwim?

Okay, I have meetings all morning, lucky me!

Good Morning Everyone!

I did my workout last night (Max Cardio Conditioning) and then did Max Interval Circuit this morning. I missed my run so I may only do 2 times this week because the back to back workouts wore me out. Also I did not sleep well last night and I was struggling to get through this morning's workout. Also, my hip is bothering me a little which is probably why I didn't sleep well. It started bothering me last night before I worked out and I have no idea what I did. I guess I am getting old.

Anne, I am a Penn State fan and that is why I can't support MSU. I hope tap did help you last night.
Robin, Happy Birthday to Jaz. That's crazy that they wanted you at work at 7.
Nina, ^5 on the clean eats. Enjoy the zoo today.
Kate, poor J! I hope she isn't getting sick.
Klaudia, I am jealous of your free time but it will go by too quickly.
Katie, glad the hip is doing better.
Angie, I saw great results from STS (my bi's are popping a little) but I agree that it is pricey now and I am not sure I would order again. I hardly ever order from because her DVD's are cheaper elsewhere and I get free shipping.
