Morning, ladies! :)

I am SOOO happy it's Saturday. I shouldn't be up this early, but I think it was around 9 when I conked out last night (so much for your theory, Wendy, about me having the energy to go out & rock out-ha!!)

Today's plan is to run & do Legs & Glutes...I *would* love to try to get in a MM u/b premix (I think there is one of those) if I can summon up the energy, but I'll have to play that by ear. That might be too ambitious for the kind of week/energy level I had! :)

To catch up from last night's personals...

Susan :: YW...I really enjoyed setting it up, and I love my shirt, too!

Wendy :: thanks for the info on P90X...I did do a search on it yesterday and the opinions seem to run the gamut, so I appreciate trusted cheetah advice! I looked at some of the over-the-door bars and wonder if one of those would work and not destroy the door/door frame. I definitely do not have the space for a tower. :( ...I think a cheetah GTG in a neutral locale would be AWESOME...my vote is for Chicago. I think flights there from both coasts are fairly reasonable, but I would be open to other spots, too. The funny thing is, last night I had a dream that I met a bunch of cheetahs in NYC.

Thanks for the compliments on my photo, ladies - you are way too kind! It's really NOT the most flattering shot, taken at the end of the day when I'm lookin' kinda wrecked (I should've waited til today when I'm getting a long-overdue haircut :)) but I thought what-the-hay. I must say, though, that this is why I like to be the photographer and the not the photographee! But I like the idea of seeing everybody in their shirts, so break out the cameras, ladies!! :)

I'm gonna post mine one more time for some folks who might not be able to sift through all the pages of yesterday's thread! We've been a tough group to keep up with lately!

Have a GREAT Saturday/workouts! :) :) :) May it be a day of not needing the silly putty hammer for any of our loved ones, may the East Coast & Midwest Cheetahs stay warm, and may all the ailing cheetahs get well quick!

Cathy :)

Good Morning.

Cathy, I have molding on my doors so I have the type of pull up bar that rests on it so you don't have to screw it into the door jamb. It works great. No problems at all! :-) I would love a power tower personally but my house is pretty tiny so there's no way....

Today is legs and back/arx. Well, that's my hope anyway. I'm going to be tight on time this morning so it will be a challenge to fit it all in.

YIKES, my lil guy is complaining already. He might have dropped his "dude" (stuffed animal lamb) on the floor and wants it back so I'll be back in a bit!:-)

Hey Ladies:) Cathy, I love you picture, so nice to put a face (and such a pretty one at that) to the personality we have come to know and love here.:) The tee shirts look great! I love the MM u/b mix too, doing that and L&G eh? You really are going for the BURN! }( I wish I had something to report about my soccer guy last week but I haven't heard anything, ahh well....How's your search going?

Wendy, I love it that Joey's lamb is called 'dude', that's too cute! Sounds like you are rockin' P90X!!l

I'm working from 10-2 today so I'd better get working out. It'll be some steady state step (nice illiteration!!;-) ) 'cause I need to work off my sins of yesterday. I've been VERY good but my Girls were 'kind' enough to save me a piece of Marley's birthday cake (she's 16 now:o ) and I was too undisciplined to say 'no thanks'. If that had been the end of my snacking I'd be okay but suffice it to say, it wasn't.x( Marley got her lip pierced a few weeks ago, I thought long and hard about giving her permission and could think of no good reason to say no except to control her behaviour. She's on the honour role, works hard at her job, keeps curfew and gives me minimal grief. I didn't like it at first but it looks really sweet on her. She assured me it's not a 'gateway piercing' and I had her look me in the eye and promise 'no more piercings while you are living at home'. My house is full of teens and I am earning each and every grey hair on my head!!

Enjoy your Saturday Cheetahs!!

Take Care
Laurie

good morning,

I ended up doing muscle endurance lastnight around 9 pm. I was feeling lazy but made myself do it. Ialso added firewalkers in and that one move from fluidity that someone said had them sore from the open forum. I couldnt believe that I had to drop my wts down that much in order to do ME. Lots and Lots of reps on that one. Leg press wasnt so bad. I dont feel too bad so far but it will probably set in later today. I dont know if I will take today as a rest day or do something. I had bootcamp 1x this week, the elliptical and walked on the treadmill 1x, ran 3miles,20minutes on the elliptical and walked 2miles and did ME lastnight, so I have 3 full cardio days in, one total body strength. I am thinking maybe take today off and do another total body workout tomorrow. I do have class again on monday but we only do one exercise wt wise per muscle group with 2-3sets so I think I would be fine if I did another total body workout on sunday. I am debating though, should I do ME again or supersets,barrys bootcamp or a different total body workout. Thats where I am stuck. do you do the same total body workout 2x week for several weeks and then change it or do two different workouts each week for best results?

hope you all have a nice day!

Crazy sick cheetah poppin' in! Man, I thought I felt better y'day. I had some lunch (chicken noodle soup) & we headed to Lowe's to pick out our bathroom stuff (we're redoing the upstairs bathroom, next home reno project!). I felt ok picking out the paint but by the time we were leaving the store I was feeling yucky again. We made it home & my stomach was in knots. Yep, I guess it is the stomach flu. Greg tore out the shower, toilet, vanity/ sink, medicine cabinet, etc. Of course, I had to paint (that's always my job, but I don't mind normally since I like to paint). It's a good thing that's a small bathroom, I almost didn't make it painting. The paint went on very well & I love the color (Niagara Falls Blue). After I was done painting I was banned to the chair again & not allowed to get up. I was also banned from working out this morning or going to the Y to swim (boo!). LOL My dh loves me & he knows that I would push myself when I don't need to. Besides, I dropped a couple pounds, so I guess it's ok, right?? UGH!!

I'm feeling better this morning but not eating for a while til I make sure my tummy can handle it.

More bathroom work today. We have to lay the flooring (we had the cheap peel & stick before), get the new toilet in, etc. And I'm painting the vanity, everything in there was yucky 70's style wood before so it's going to be nice & white!! We bought a new mirror & medicine cabinet. Of course I've been taking pics along the way so I'll share when it's done.

For anyone that missed the pics the other day, here's the link http://www.picturetrail.com/jess_jugs (you can see Hannah's room & other home projects plus a few new pics!).

OK, must go make breakfast for the kids. We're supposed to go to a Sweetheart banquet at church tonight, but we'll see how I feel.

I can't catch up from y'day, but Christine, isn't Susan such a sweetheart??? I'm jealous that she got to meet you too! Your pics look great, what beautiful Cheetahs we have here!! And Cathy ~ You are beautiful too & have the most adorable smile!! I'll have to take a pic in my shirt. I'll take a pic in mine once I look & feel better!! Right now you'd all be shocked to see me!! :o

And for get togethers, I definitely vote for Chicago, since it's driving distance for me!!!

Cathy ~ Wanted to say that I did the B & G leg premix & then the upper body from MM the other day. Good workout!! The MM u/b premix is about 40 min, I think? Hope you can get everything done you need to today!! Oh, and buying P90X!! I can't wait to hear how you like it too!

Laura ~ ME is one of my new fav workouts. I just got it a few weeks ago but I love it. I'm doing more endurance workouts for now & it's a goodie!! I did it once this week & then the u/b from MM.

Sunny ~ It sounds like the PT is going great. You all are enabling me, that's been my goal once my dd's are all in school. I get nervous thinking about it though!!

Laurie ~ Always great to see you around here!! Happy belated bday to Marley, hope you enjoyed that cake!

Wendy ~ Ah, those kids have to grow up! My advice is: Be consistent. You pick your punishment for fits & be consistent EVERY time he throws a fit. Fits were never allowed in my house, but I run a tight ship! LOL It does get better though. Is he throwing fits when he's overtired? Make sure he's getting enough sleep.

Have a great day, Cheetahs!

I know, everyone I know tells me I should be a PT. I love to workout & I love to help other people. I'm more worried about the certification thing, trying to get it done while still taking care of 3 kiddos! I'm a great multi-tasker though! I am looking more into the fall when Allison will be in pre-K 3 mornings a week so I'd have some study time. I have looked into ACE & a few others. I even found one certification (can't remember for the life of me right now) that certifies at a Y about 45 min away from here. What certification did you get? Hey, did you have your interview for the TurboKick yet? That sounds like fun too. I think if I teach anything, I'd prefer to teach Pilates.

Oh, and I'm not a triathalete... yet. But, I do love that I can call myself a marathoner, even though I have only run 1!! ;-)

Good morning everyone!

Cathy, Susan and Christine - What pretty pictures! I love putting faces with names and personalities! You are all three gorogeous and very fit looking!

Cathy - I am going to love Barry's Bootcamp! I did the Legs and Butts weight portion this morning. (I did the treadmill run of this one yesterday.) I am very excited about these :7

Christine - My gosh....I swear...you look "sooo" familiar! I am serious!

Sunny - What TurboKick interview????? I am going to California in August to Camp TurboKick and to take my certification test! But..I am very nervous...but excited!

Jess - Get better soon girlie! You could always take your test and train on the side just once in a while until your girls get a little older! You would be great at it, I am sure!

Will be back later! Gotta go put up groceries!

Linda
