Evening ladies!

Alisha - I agree! You did more than enough with all that yard work! Rest is a good idea! Hope your hike was enjoyable and the estimate was reasonable!

Jane - I should have done upper body today! Glad the knees are healing! I have found coconut oil is good on that too!

I decided on Low Impact Challenge tonight, but was going back and forth between that and XT Bis and Tris. Should have done the weights! I couldn't keep my head in it and kept messing up and then I only got frustrated, but I kept at it hoping I would finally get myself into the workout. I was trying to talk myself out of working out on the way home, but decided I needed to just do it! I just picked wrong! Oh, well, 30 minutes is better than nothing! I finally gave up! I don't have time to start another as Stephen will be home soon and it'll be dinner time for everyone and I'm starving too much to hold off on my own meal any later!

At least I didn't sit on my butt! I wish we were getting a warm spell, but the last time we did, we got horrible winds and rain! I'll wait until summer! We are expecting a possible blizzard on Friday, so that'll mean no run. I'm going out again tomorrow. Hopefully, I won't scare myself again! lol

I'm excited! I got to order a nice terracotta 3-tiered sprouting set. It's really pretty! I also ordered some seeds. Can't wait for them to get here! It's small enough to fit in my loaded kitchen and pretty so it'll look nice out. I think I might have mentioned this before maybe? Anyway, it hasn't shipped yet, but I'll get a picture for you when it gets here! I needed more variety in my seeds. Right now, I only have alfalfa and some chickpeas and I need more variety in my greens.

I ate well today. My green smoothie this morning and leftover at mid-morning, then I had the rest of my brazil nut rice for lunch and a small kale and avocado salad for a snack this afternoon. Dinner will either be salmon and salad or leftover spicy moroccan mussels. Depends on what Stephen's in the mood for when he gets home.

Okay, I'm going to go try not to eat nuts or something and ruin my dinner while I wait! I'll feed the pets in a few minutes. Maybe that will help, too!

Have a great night!

Its so cold out there, its in the 30s. I was too cold to workout first thing. I'm a wuss. I did get my Mom's car to the shop to get the thermostat checked. Its looking like its overheating but its too cold to be overheating. I will be doing data entry, chores, and mid morning one of the shorter Low Impact Challenge premixes, one of the Tummy Trimmer Segments, and a 20 min. yoga segment with Shiva.

Tricia- 30 min. counts! I didn't even think of coconut oil for the scabs. Great job with your healthy eats!

Jane-I'm glad the vit. E has helped. How are your hands? Do you wear gloves for the upper body workout?

I am going for a run tonight. It's in the 70's and the sun is trying to come out. It will be warm tomorrow but we are expecting rain.

Tricia ~ A 30 minute workout is better than nothing. At least your body was moving and you had healthy meals. Enjoy your sprouting set! Sorry about the snow coming your way.

Alisha ~ Well..I am a wuss too because I would have done the same thing. My hands are good. My right hand was more beat up but it healed really quickly. I do wear lifting gloves regardless except when doing kettlebell workouts.

Hey there Gals!

Alisha - Hope you managed to get to your workout today! Was your mom's car okay?

Jane - Enjoy your run! Wow, 70s! How nice!

It was at least 37 degrees out tonight, so my run was much nicer! Was going to get Chinese food for dinner, but decided all my hard work deserved a home cooked meal. I figure so long as I try to eat at home most of the time instead of eating out, that will be a huge improvement.

We have been upgraded from a winter storm watch to a blizzard watch for Friday. Problem is we will most likely have to go in to work because there are closings and they're all trying to squeeze in for morning appointments. I hope it all has to get cancelled and we get told to stay home. When we work during storms, they usually don't let us go until it's already nasty out and it makes for a very nerve-wracking drive home. That short commute becomes really long and fast! For over a month, we've hardly had any closings - what lousy timing! Not sure how much we'll get because it can be anywhere from 4" to 24"! Everything depends on the direction of the storm once it gets closer. I'm hoping more for 4", but we'll have to wait and see!

Take care you two! See you tomorrow!

Good Morning!

I missed my run last night because mom was having bad back spasms and I had to go and check on her. She used to get these spasms every once in a while but now they have been coming more frequently. She went to the doctor once but they just gave her meds and some exercises (which she did not do ). So we brought up the exercises again and she seemed more open and then we had her do some. We rubbed her back really good. I just talked to her and she is slept through the night and did not have any back spasms. She is the kind of person that she waits until she is told...you will die if you don't do this. She has gotten her eating under control (sodium, sugar and cholesterol) so this is the next step for her. I wish I could go over there every day and make her do the exercises.

No workout tonight either because it's Mom's 79th Birthday!!! We are going over for dinner and it's not going to be good (well it is but...)..pizza and cake.

Tricia ~ Reading you talk about snow reminds me of school snow days. I remember running to the porch light every couple of hours to see if it was snowing. Usually they would forecast 12 inches and we would end up getting 1 inch. For your safety I hope it either snows 1 inch or enough that work is cancelled and you don't have to go in at all.

Good job on your run. I was bummed that I could not run last night but mom is more important. I will make it up on Friday. My half marathon is next Saturday the 16th in Myrtle Beach. I'm so excited. We used to go to Myrtle Beach regularly because my mom likes to play mini golf and they have over 50 courses but when my dad started declining and then mom got cancer we stopped going. We haven't been there since 2006 so I'm looking forward to it. We are leaving on Thursday and will have all day Friday and all day Saturday after the 1/2 and we will drive back on Sunday. They have great outlets there too. I always loved going there because it was nothing but mini golf and shopping. I have never even seen the beach. We used to have mini golf tournaments. We would play 3 different courses a day and put so much money in the pot and who ever won from the 3-day tournament got all the money. Fun times!

Hi Alisha!

Got to get to work.

I have to take my Mom's car up to a radiator place in Placerville.

Jane- Happy Birthday to Mom!!! Just tell her that everybody has to exercise. Btw, a potassium deficiency (as you know) can cause spasms and is easily fixed with either a banana or adding/using salt substitute in her food (and it won't raise her BP either.) Enjoy your pizza and cake. What is your favorite flavor?

Tricia- I hope that you get a snow day!!

Alisha

Evening ladies!

Alisha - Hope mom's car won't cost too much to fix! I guess this means you didn't get much you time today.

Jane - Yes, mom always comes first! I hate back spasms! Glad she was able to sleep through the night! I love Myrtle Beach!

We did got to the beach, but your mini golf tournament sounds like a lot of fun! I never did much shopping either. It's a beautiful place though!

Enjoy birthday with your mom and tell her Happy Birthday for me! Enjoy the pizza and beer!

I stopped at the grocery for a few things tonight. Wow! Busy, but not too bad. I managed to get everything I was there for. I ended up with another dang headache today! I think it's a pattern. Whenever the weather turns, I get these horrible headaches. No workout tonight. Got home around 6 and put everything away. I did 5 days in a row, so a rest day now should be okay. I'll get right back on it tomorrow. We do have to go in. It's not supposed to get bad until the afternoon, so at least it'll be dress down day! I hope we leave around noon. That's when all the parking bans are taking effect. Sounds like the whole city will be shut down for a few days. Just in time to go back to work on Monday! lol

Well, I'll check in tomorrow and let you know what time I get home!

Ack! I'm being kitty-attacked and it's not even feeding time yet! Okay, 8 more minutes!

Gotta run!

Take care you two!

Kitty Attacked!! I will go for a hike today. Its a bit sunny right now. I will do some yoga this evening before bed. I will workout tomorrow.

Tricia- Taking a day off after 5 days on is perfectly ok. I hope your head feels better. Have you tried a warm compress on the back of your neck? I wonder if that would help.

Jane- Tell Mom Happy Birthday for me!!!

Alisha

Tonight's workout will be a running ladder mixed in with some presses, swings and squat thrusts.

Last night at mom's birthday was good. I enjoyed the pizza and the cake.

Alisha ~ My favorite type of cake is any cake with lots of frosting. I don't like nuts or fruit fillings. We had the bakery put on lots of roses on mom's cake and she loved it. Me too...lots of roses mean more frosting. What is your favorite?

Tricia ~ Hope you stay safe with all that snow. Our NJ office is closed today. Taking a day off after working out for 5 days is perfectly acceptable. Hope your head feel better today.

I need a rest day. I will be spending it doing household repairs. I will workout tomorrow.

Jane- I like a chocolate cake myself.

Tricia- How is the weather? Are you ok?
