Hey ladies! I just finished Xtrain CLB. My legs are wobbly now. I am pretty tired. The guys finished the fence today. It looks fantastic. I love having my privacy back. We have a corner property and without this fence you could see right inot our bedroom windows. Now we have all the privacy we need, lol. We had them expand the backyard too, bringing the fence more up to the front of the house so the boys will have more room to play in the spring. Speaking of spring. . . I wish it would get here soon. I woke up this morning to a surprising fresh inch of snow. .. I hate driving in any snow, whther it be a foot or an inch. People drive like maniacs around here and snow seems to make them crazier.

Amelia- I hear you with the dogs. When I was a kid, our dog used to bark at the neighbors' dog at the fence. Then this dog would come up to the fence and pee on my dog. . . that happened almost EVERY time. My dog was a bit stupid, lol.

Lori- I don't dread Tabatacise so much as I wonder if I will live through it. The one cardio workout by Cathe that I never do because I just really dislike it and dread it is Cardio Core Circuit. I've never liked it. I guess with this, knowing it is only 20 seconds for each part might make it less dreadful to do the whole thing. I plan on doing premix 2 on Thursday.

Belinda- we waited for the insurance money for the fence to come through. Then it took forever to get a fence guy. The island construction companies are booked. Our friend who is in construction has not had a day off since the hurricane. That is why it took so long to get it done. First, waiting for the insurance check. Then getting the fence guy to come.

Waving hello to Cookie and Deb!

Kristin

Hi,

I did BS shoulders today. One more week to go & so much to do & I feel guilty leaving DS's (like Lori) & they are old

Belinda - Sorry your nose is stuffed it's been good for awhile wonder if it's the weather. Since TJ has been around awhile you would think the price would be cheaper, maybe QVC?

Lori - The guilts & they adapt quicker than us. Wow, 3 weeks is great they aren't as generous here in the States. Do you have plans to visit home in the summer?

Kristin - We have been getting an inch here & there too, it does seem to be worse because it doesn't stop anyone from staying home. These new workouts are making me tired too.

Amelia - You must be an expert on selling on e-bay, as long as you don't buy more than you sell I'm sure you could do it on your own too.

Cookie - I'm thinking of 50 Shades of Grey to see what all the hype is about LOL. Sometimes I think most shoes/sneakers need inserts because they don't seem to made as good anymore.

Goodnight

'Morning!
Belinda, I should revisit dog training! The dogs think going in and out is their part of helping me get in exercise, and this morning it is getting on me. Have heard good things about TJ but never tried it.
Amelia, found a site about that Game On and it was free. Of course, you could do it with a team, which is how it is designed, for but nothing to purchase. Overview Anyway, my friend has done it a couple of weeks and lost 6#. Now she's convinced a couple of others to do it with her, and they are a team doing it on their own. She said they were just doing it not submitting any formal stuff. How's your dh handling the news?
Lori, bet in a week or so, you'll have the drill down of packing and loading the get the day started and off. You must be quite organized to get done all you do. Can't believe you didn't want to come home and collapse after the first day.
Kristin, glad the fence is in, and bet it looks good. Nice that you got extra space with it. We have snow again today and I'm so sick of it. Spring! But I really want summer.
Phatgyrl, how's the studying? Last night I was reading some paperwork and it was so boring, I started thinking I should eat something to ease the pain of it. Thankfully, I didn't and just gave up for that reading for a time. Does snacking call you when studying?
Deb, one week?!! You must be so excited. I would be. Love e-readers so you don't have to carry books and can always get another selection if need be. There are a lot of details to prepare. How long will you be gone for?
Have bis/tris this morning While I love my job, lately I'm just worn out from the nonsense of my coworker. There's soooo much to do and no time for stupid things that don't matter. Why don't others see it that way? Oh well, thanks for listening.

Good morning,

Haven't decited what I will do today? Too early? Need more coffee.

Cookie - lol. about your dogs. Dog training went well yesterday, we learned off leach. How is your foot feeling? Sorry about your job. Aleisa has the same problems with hers. Frustrating!

Debbie - I haven't found a cheaper price for TJ. I know the set been out a few years? Don't get it? The only place I found on for $59 was at totalfitnessdvds.com , but the shipping was almost $10. Hallo? But this set comes with two more workouts and weighted cloves! The once on amazon is already $29 for only 5 workouts? Sometimes you find BB workout half price on groupon.com. I still can kick myself in the butt for not getting Turbo Fire for $53 a few month ago.
Kirstin - I understand! We couldn't wait for the insurecane money for the fence to come through. Not with 4 dogs. I am sure where you live, the damage was worst. Glad your fence is up. What kind did you get?

Amelia - you will lose those 30 lb. I find the more I fuss about counting cal the more I gain? Do what you been doing meaning keep active and you will see results. About ebay and amazon, I am always afraid to buy bootleg dvds. Hate spending that kinda money and l have a fake. Like I said to
Debbie, you do spend almost $30 on amazon or ebay. But if you buy from Beachbody/totalfitness.com or QVC you do get 2 more workouts and weighted cloves. I just don't trust amazon or ebay???

Hi Lori!!

Happy Hump Day, everyone. BBL!

Evening everyone. I just finished Xtrain Disc 2, Bis and Tris. I added on Core #1, so I did the first premix. My arms have such a nice pump in them now. I have only done the 100 rep challenges with the Scarecrows and hip thrusts. I want to try the biceps and triceps ones, but not on the day I just did bis and tris, lol.

Anyway. . . I am so tired and wishing that my mid-winter break was not cancelled because of the stupid hurricane . My parents are going to Puerto Rico, and I wish I could go with them, but I am stuck here in the cold. . . with snow in the forecast . . . I guess I need to hold on for spring. Another month and it will be here, right? That's what I love about 90 day rotations. . . it makes the 90 days fly. I cannot believe I am in the fifth week of the Xtrain rotation. Once I finish it will be baseball season and then school will be over.

I am dreaminf of swimming pools over here, can you tell?

Deb- you must be so excited to be getting out of this cold. Are you packed yet?

Belinda- we got six foot stockade. I wanted to get the nice pvc fence, but DH and I talked about it, and we would have to spend money out of pocket, and if we are planning on moving what would be the point?

Cookie- There are a number of people at my job complaing and complaining, which I find draining. At this point, I stay in my room. I eat lunch alone in my room, or I give extra help during my lunch. I'd rather be with the kids than with the adults, lol.

Lori- how is the job going?

Waving hello to AMelia and phatgyrl!

Kristin

Hi,

Today I took a yoga class. So we are expecting a big snow storm here in the East & wouldn't you know it I have to go to Jersey City to set-up a prototype. I'm going to go early so I'm back home by late afternoon. I started cooking extra food for DS's & tonight it was lasagna & chili.

Belinda - Crossing my fingers you find a good deal. Amazon can be tricky because they don't always sell the whole package

Lori - How are you making out?

Kristin - I can't wait to get away from the cold but your right Spring is just around the corner. You even lost President's day? I'm pulling things out of the closet & will spend some time narrowing it down over the weekend.

Amelia - What are you up to?

Cookie - Have you been spinning? Still haven't tried the ride dvd. Is your co-worker close to retirement?

Phatgyrl - How is school?

Goodnight

Morning girls,

Last night I did High Reps. That ab wo is tough.

Debbie - good job with your yoga class. I am sure I will find a good deal on TJ eventually. If not, I got enough dvds.
As long as my neighbor lets me use TJ I don't need to buy them, right?

Kirstin - glad you enjoy Xtrain and seeing great results. I wanted to get a nicer fence, but like you we don't plan on staying here forever. lol.

Hi to everyone that checks in after me. BBL!

Good morning everyone. I tried to post on here last night but I think the site was down again :/. Anyway, I dad Tabatacise premix 2, (tabatas 1, 2, core 2). I was breathing heavy and my heart was about to burst. Next week I will add on the third one.

So this snowstorm is going to be a whopper and of course, it begins while I am at work. When I say I hate driving in the snow, I mean I am terrified. I've had bad experiences in the past. The last time it snowed heavy like it is expected to today, I was at work and it took me THREE and a half hours to get home. I am hoping they will do an early dismissal so that we can beat it to the punch. Gas lines where ridiculous last night. I paid $4.09 a gallone .When I got back in my car my younger DS tells me, "Mommy are you going to flip out?" I asked why and then my older DS goes, "Did you just pay $50 for gas?" I said, "Yes, I did." He goes, "I think you are going to flip out." I said, "I just might," lol. They jacked up the price already. Yesterday morning in was $3.79 a gallon. I had to go to three different gas stations because of lines and then one claimed they had no more regular. Yea, I'm going to buy your premium gas at $4.39.

I got my hair colored yesterday and my hairdresser was talking about how she was leaving for Florida at 4 a.m. today. How very lucky she is!!!!

Belinda- nice job with high reps! How's the foot these days? Feeling any better?

Deb- we have President's day off, but I need more than that, lol. I am glad the snow storm is hitting us over the weekend and not on a school day. I don't want to lose the four day weekend for Memorial DAy. The kids and I will need it after all the testing!!

Waving hello to Lori, AMelia, Cookie and phatgyrl!

Kristin

'Morning!
Belinda, you are tempting me w/TJ! Not that I need any more dvds, but they do sound really good. The past two mornings I've woken up to an indoor snowstorm - the dogs have torn apart a throw pillow each night. Guess what I'm storing today?
Amelia, are you drowning in red frosting and decorations at work? That Game One thing is free.
Kristin, think part of my problem is it is all adults (or so they claim) I'm working with! checked with HR the other day on when retirement notices had to be filed. Too late for this year if I want to claim sick days, but guess at this rate I will next year unless I can get a transfer. I would love a transfer but keep getting told I'm "far too valuable" there, but two others in that office are driving me out. Not trying to gloat, but honestly it has to be jealousy. Yet I'm doing three jobs and they're doing one. Sorry, but I've been up for hours from the stress of them.
Lori, how are you adjusting to your new job? Hope it is going smoothly.
Phatgyrl, how's the job and studying coming along?
Deb, hmmm, second honeymoon and 50 Shades.... there seems to be a theme here. Do your ds know how lucky they are with you leaving them food and everything? Drive safe today.
Did an old Leslie on the rebounder this morning.
