Default ::: CHEETAHS ::: Thursday aka Friday Eve!

Good morning, friends!

Wasn't sure what day it was. Had to think about it for a moment there. :P :7 It's that kind of week. Oh yeah, I'm the Queen of Post-its, and I still have no clue what's going on. *lol*

So today, I am opting for an unplanned rest day. I have a busy day ahead of me at school to get ready for tomorrow's filming (which I hope is the last time I have to do it) and an NB work session tonight from 5-8. So, time's a little tight. Working out this AM wasn't an option unless I hooked up the caffeine IV. :7 Kinda slow-movin' morning.

Well, I caught up on personals last night, so this is a short & sweet one.

Enjoy your Thursday, everyone!

cathy-your "rest day" doesn't sound like a rest day except that you are not working out! you have a busy day ahead of you and i think you made a good choice. yes, i was milking it with DBF a little bit. hey, ya gotta do what ya gotta do! i am still about no cardio!

wendy-that's what i keep tellling myself. i could be banned from cardio. i am only sidelined for the rest of the week (gonna have to call him and see if that means the weekend as well). he did put me on anti-inflammatories because i was still really hurting. it's more my stupid piriformis than my hip right now!

christine-yes, using the HRM with weights was a good idea. it was very interesting. i would love to wear it around one day and see how many calories i actually burn in a day. i think that would be interesting. dog is back! yay! those photos are amazing. i don't think i would be able to leave. I VOTE FOR A CHEETAH GTG AT CHRISTINE'S DAD'S HOUSE!!! ;-) how beautiful is it??? wow!

sunny-i hope everyone gets to go to school on time today. i really admire all you cheetah mommies. i don't know how you balance everything.

carole-i called for a PT appt. and they couldn't get me in for almost three weeks. my friend (the doc) is kinda mad. he says they should be able to get me in before. he said to call again or i can go to any PT with the RX but i want to go to the one connected with his company (resurgens orthopedics) because they have easy access to my doc and all my info. i bought a foam roller yesterday and used it as well as using a ball and rolling it around until you find a "spot" then holding on that spot for at least 30 seconds. i don't think i made it all 30 seconds and i had lots of "spots." OUCH!!! not fun but i will make myself do it and stretch.

jackie-so far, i can't tell if the shot is really helping. it's sore where i got the shot and my piriformis is really acting up. the whole area from the side of my hip to my piriformis just does not feel "right." my friend put me on a short-term high dose (2000 mg.!:o ) of anti-inflammatories.

shelly-yes, i am really starting to love tantrum girl. i think she's funny and kinda cute. there you go with the enabling again! i will have to go get that secret cheetah (cathy :-) ) gave me a gift card to the bookstore, so i guess i will use it today after work. you realize you are STILL enabling me. i'm going to go BROKE!

kristi-love your siggy. i think it's so cool that our little group did that! good idea, posh! lol about your boss getting your bug! maybe you can infect your boss' cofffee cup or something... i hope you are feeling better. get well vibes to you. {{{}}}

judy-yay on the siggy! i copied your recipe and am going to try it. i am really loving my crockpot. what a great purchase, especially in the winter! only thing is, i bought those liners, and, so far, both times they have leaked a bit at the bottom. nothing major (and cetainly still easier clean-up, but i was thinking it would be perfectly clean). mine came in a pink box, four to a box. those were the only ones at the store. are those what you use?

lori-yes, i am becoiming very fond of tantrum girl. here, this tantrum is for you having to work so much

dallas-i would LOVE to swim. we have three olympic sized swimming pools with lanes and everything in my neighborhood (they even have times where they close the pool and only allow swimmers accesss-usually from 5 am-12 pm before the pool opens to everyone). unfortunately, the pool is closed because it's as cold as heck and i don't belong to a gym. i love to swim in the summer. i got to where i could swim a mile in about 35 minutes, which is good for me!

posh-how long did it take for your bursitis to clear up and what did you do to make it better? i think the shots will help that, i'm more worried about the pirformis because it really hurts! i can't wait to at least get back to the EXT as that nver hurt anything (neither did the bosu!). it's just my favorite thing to i can't do

well, it is about time (actually i'm runnig about half an hour late) for me to go look at my dvds and see what i can do. i am assuming i will be doing a mish mosh of a bunch of premixes. i guess i could do the kickbox without the kick. i'll see. maybe i can do a step workout without a step. very low-impact and it's almost like walking, right?


i hope you gals are having a great mornin'! so glad it's friday-eve (no tantrum girl on that one!!!)

Good morning cheetahs! I'm at work but only for tonight and then it'll be a couple of nights off:7 Had a great workout yesterday with B&G blast-- forgot what a burner that one is! Now I remember why I call it the "Oh no, not that again" workout! It fried me for sure and was barely able to get through HLD afterwards.

Cathy- so is there light at the end of the tunnel for you re: NB stuff? I bet it will certainly be a big TGIF for ya.

Sunny- Have a great circuit day... so I guess you're not an Amy fan?

Lorie- We cheetahs are terrific enablers for sure! Glad to hear you have a foam roller and are making use of it. It really gets to those hard to reach places! If it's the impact that you need to avoid I'm not sure why you can't use the EXT??

For today I was planning on a 5 mile run outside after my nap but they are forecasting a snowstorm so I guess it'll have to be on the TM. I'll see what itread catches my interest. For later today I'll
be doing DM ultracardioblast on the bosu:-)

Hi Cheetahs-

Shelly- Have you tried DM ultra cardioblast in the bosu yet? I was trying to decide on a non running cardio today to do along with S&H Bi/Tri. I think you made up my mind!

Cathy- my you have every minute packed in your day. Good luck with the filming

Christine- Your Dad sure has an ideal set up. Are you originally from the east coast? There is something magical about being near an ocean. IA the 4 mile walk on the ocean was a better choice yesterday.

Sunny- What circuit did you choose?

Lori- I do not understand why the EXT is off limits. Do you have the will power to walk only (with the HRM for fun) on the TM? I hope you enjoy those yoga DVD's. Thanks for the help with my signature. :)

We have a diner to goto tonight, our neighbors purchased a chef's dinners at a charity auction and have invited us and another couple along.

Good morning ladies!

I'm sorry but this will have to be a quickie post for now. I hope to get out of work at a *normal* time (unlike last night) and stop in here to catch up with everyone before bowling tonight.

No run happened yesterday and it ended up being an unplanned rest day. I was draggging when I woke up and I knew it was going to be a very hard day, physically so I decide to nix the run. I was going to do an O/D run *early* this morning but it was just too cold so here's what I ended up doing on the about a sweatfest }(!!!

HCE Hi/Lo Intervals, stopped before KM blasts
SJP/SB Step and Hi/Lo Circuit, but had to stop before the last low section because I felt a blister starting in my right foot so I decided discretion was the better part of valor.

Gotta run! Hasta luego mi amigas!

Morning Cheetah-Babes!

Judy: Awesome siggy! You did a fine job. Love it! Enjoy the dinner tonight!:-)

Christine: I am impressed with those pics too! I considered buying DH an iphone for Christmas but he works construction and has a tendency to drop his phone at work. Um..a $400 phone getting dropped goodness knows where? NO THANKS!:P I obviously decided against it. LOL Yeah, I imagine you miss you babes. Too bad they couldn't come with you. DH might get mad though cause then you may never leave!}(

Jackie: I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I enjoy TJ. I wanted weighted gloves regardless so atleast I'll have them to show for it if TJ doesn't pan out for me. It LOOKS fun though and different from anything I have!:-)

Cathy: Good job getting in a short work out last night. I know it's gotta be tough for you to find the energy if not the time these days. Thanks for that website. I haven't clicked on it yet. I'm trying to resist the urge! LOL We are getting a Wii but I may opt to just wait it out until they are back in stock and pretty easy to find. Congrats on your score though and have fun with it. It's neat and I can't wait to get one. I think DH is really excited that we'll have a system that I'll actually want to play with him. LOL Love the post-it smileys! You find the coolest stuff!

Sunny: Why don't you like slo-mo? I'm just curious.

Lorie: So what work out did you decide on? Get better soon!

Shelly: DM on the bosu..hmmm...I've never tried that...thanks for the food for thought!}( Enjoy the snow!

Wendi: Sounds like a fun work out this morning! The cheetahs are rockin' the bosu lately! :7

Looks like I'm all caught up!

Good Morning Ladies

I realized last night that I never mentioned my HLD workout yesterday morning. What a fun workout! I love it! I really liked combo 4. That has to be one of my favorite combos ever. Its just fun!! Today Im thinking will be Core Syn and probably another walk unless it rains which it looks as if its thinking about. Well see.

Jackie I was good again last night nice to have a conscience on the boards. :P Thanks!

Cathy Good job on the blood giving! And especially on the low key 20 minute EXT session. I once went for a 3 mile run the next day that was pretty stupid. Made it 2 and about died. Had to walk the last mile slowly. Im pretty impressed with my new toy (the iPhone). Its also a handy thing to have when youre bored in an airport (or anywhere). :P Speaking of fun things good job on snagging the Wi!! Have fun with it! I LOVE that you canceled the meeting what a great first executive decision! Id hire you! Enjoy your rest day sounds like youre a busy bee again!

Sunny Enjoy your circuit! So youre not a fan of Slo Mo, eh? It is different, but thats what I like about it. To each her own! :P

Lorie aka Temper Tantrum Cheetah :+ - Im a cardio junkie, too, and I was sidelined for two weeks once. Yeah, I threw temper tantrums, too. Ive thought about wearing my HRM around for a day, but that strap drives me batty after a while. I think my dad would be thrilled to have the very lovely Cheetahs all converge on his house. Hed be in hog heaven (so-to-speak). Hope you get something in. Too bad its too cold to go for a real walk!

Shelly Im glad you have a few nights off! Every time I do the B&G Leg Blast workout, I think of you. It is certainly a burner. Enjoy your run even on the TM maybe you can beat the snow.

Judy Oh, that dinner sounds like fun! Do you know which chef? Let us know how it was!

Wendi Enjoy bowling tonight. Good job on listening to your body. And WHAT a sweatfest! Amazing!!

Wendy No, the iPhone does not sound like its for your DH. They dont liked to be dropped too much. Yeah, if I had Jimmy and DD15 I might not want to return. :P Although California has its moments, too. Have fun with whatever killer workout you choose!

I should move early to get in my workout as I dont know if Ill have to go get my sister or not. Have a great day everyone!

Good morning cheetahs

Cathy...the next book just focuses more on womens issues, I am not done reading it yet. It makes me feel good about how much I have exercised in my life instead of being sedentary. I think sedentary people have much more pain as they age and their musculoskeletel system becomes more dysfuntional. Pete feels keeping that system functional is what helps us. Of anyone I know, you would be the one I would choose to "throw into the fire". I know you will do great...:)..Congrats on the Wii!!! Enjoy your rest but busy day.

Sunny...I am enjoying the next book. Pete's theory seems to be that most pain in your body comes from your musculosketel system being dysfunctional, so his exercises help get your system back to functioning normally and it does make sense to me. I think you must feel about Amy the same as I feel about Tracy!!

Lorie...I didn't know you could burn that many calories lifting weights!! That is great! I agree you should wait for the right PT. Stretching and the roller should help you in the mean time. Can you use an exercise bike? Honestly, the Pain Free book is the best investment I have was $16 at Barnes & Noble and I think everyone should get it!

Wendi...sounds like a good Bosu sweatfest!

Wendy...I might like the new Kenpo then. I never liked the KenpoX because it moved so slow. I remember a guy saying he used 1 lb ankle and hand weights to kick up KenpoX! I agree that a workout is all about what you put into it.

Christine...Core Syn can be just a tough one to get started on. I know on one P90X rotation I ended up subbing some other "core type" workout for Core Syn. I bet the walk on the beach was great..:)..Power Hour was fun, I like the rep count going along with the music. More beautiful pictures...thank you for sharing. As I grew up close to the beach that is one thing I miss a lot.

Jackie...I think the "Pain Free" book is about the best investment I have made. This guy really seems to make sense and the exercises are helping me a lot. That is a long workout for 85 mins...

Shelly..that was nice of you to power walk a bit to catch up with a friend. My run was good yesterday, went 4.5. I had some hip tightness but I am thinking that for now, Kickboxing might be aggravating the hip area (I did KPC Tues) so I am not going to do any KB for a couple of weeks. I am enjoying the other book for Women.

Judy..that looks like a great recipe yesterday!! Sounds like a fun iTread. I like you new siggy.

Lori...good job with the 8 miles and 4 DS legs.

Dallas...I am enjoying the 2nd book from Pete too. I need to get my DH to do the hip exercises but I will need a 30 min commitment from him. I just know these exercises would help him. Good workout yesterday, did you get in any yoga?

Today I am doing B&G standing and abs, then 40 min on my Nordic.

Have a great day...:)

shelly and judy-he just wants me to do no hip/leg movement for three days or so. he said that he wants to give the shot some time to kick in and he also knows that i tend to overdo it. he basically said if i tell you you can do the ext you'll do it for 80 minutes (and, sadly, he is right). i am sure by this weekend i can get back on it again.

carole-i am going to get the book today...i promise!

wendy-i did a kickbox mish mosh

christine-just tell me when! it's so beeyootifull!

so, i did the KPC kick and punch premix, KM low impact premix, and the first routine from CK. for jumping jacks and jump rope, i did them on my "good" leg. for the jump kicks, i also did them on my good leg. when there was something with my legs i couldn't do, i just repeated the punch segment or madeup my own punch combos. all in all, it took 70 minutes and the HRM said i burned 520 kcal, with my highest HR at 168 and i think my lowest was 137 or something. i love my HRM but i DON'T want to get fixated on calories. although, i will say that i did not expect to burn so many calories with kickbox, especially with my modifications!!!
