Hi fit ladies!
Today is day two of training at work. Mental exhaustion. Last night I did Burn Set. It was good because I needed it. I felt so tense after I got home from work.

Nancy, congrats for rockin the workouts! I haven't tried Supercuts yet but I'm looking forward to it. I find myself pulling away from the 90 day calendar (not following it exactly) because of some preferences over certain Cathe's dvds. On top of that, I don't feel like I'm lifting often enough. I enjoy weight training and want to do that three to four times a week. The Hiit workouts could be shorter so I will start doing the premixes to save time.

I think I will supplement the calendar with STS Meso 2 dvds with heavy lifting. I'm looking forward to tank top weather, so I better get working on those arms and shoulders!

Natasha, how's Bella feeling? Better I hope. Have you used the pink gloves yet?

By the way, I received a promotion at work yesterday. My boss told me yesterday evening. It felt good to be recognized for the hard work I put into my career. I have even more of a reason to pass the professional exam now. Yikes! I'm not a good test taker. Have to really focus on time management these days since we only have 24 hours a day!

Have a good day!

Hi everyone!

Yes, Bella is getting better (thanks for asking ladies ), but now I'm sick . I was running a fever all last night, and for some reason I slept bad the night before and woke up with a sore neck, shoulder's . I rarely get sick, so this a bummer for me .

Yesterday during the day (before my horrible fever night) I did TBT LB + XT All Out (floor hiit only). Total time 60min. Great w/o . This combo works the thigh and buns well. Great one for you Nancy, since it's low impact.

Oh ya, I forgot to tell you guys about these awesome new w/o's I found on youtube! Check this link out: https://www.fitness-fx.com/. This is their main website, but they have short video's avail on youtube. I was able to do little 5-10min w/o's on Monday (total time 40min or so). SO MUCH FUN! If you get a chance, check out Stomp FX w/Neil Bates! He is great . I am going to see if I can order just downloads of these w/o's. I AM IMPRESSED .

Nancy
I KNOW, Super Cuts is AMAZING! I love, love it . Those push/sit-ups at the end are just crazy! I do all 6 rounds, even though I am like 1 round behind Cathe .
You are just moving right along with your rotation. I simply love your dedication .
Jealous of your 60F weather and nice walks . It's been brutally cold here, even too much for Bella and I to enjoy.
How is your foot doing?

Justina

Congrats on the promotion at work!!! I am super, super happy for you . You deserve it, as I'm sure you work your tail-off .
Just to reassure you, I know a lot of people from my check-in's have changed their XT rotation around. Some of them even decided to stop doing the XT rotation altogether, and incorporate some other Cathe's w/o's.
No pink gloves yet . Did I mention the shipping throughout Canada is horrible too .
How is your back BTW?

Ok gotta jet! BBL . Have a good day

Hi ladies,

Thanks for the support! I apprecite it.
Nancy, the messages put a smile on my face.

Natasha, my back is better. Thanks for asking. I actually took the night off last night since I was feeling tired. So tonight is a work out night. I'm sorry you're sick now. Hope you have chicken soup? That's an American thing to have chicken soup when you're not feeling well. It's comfort food I guess.
I checked out the youtube video you're talking about. It looks like fun! I also visited the website but I didn't see any samples of the DVDs. I'd like to see what the workouts look like.

So today I'm feeling a bit down. I have to interact with this man who is the boss of my counterpart in UK. I feel like he has beef with me or something. Maybe it's just best to ignore it. Just try to do my job well.

Hope you feel better Natasha!
Have a good day ladies!

Hi everyone

No workouts to report. I have been sick with a fever all week and have averaged 2-3hrs sleep every night for the past 5 days . The other night Bella threw-up all over her bed while having a coughing episode. So of course, when it rains it pours, so I had to proceed to do laundry and change the bedding the following day while feverish . DH works at the airport for snow removal and has been working crazy hours with the recent snow storm. An interesting fact you guys probably never knew: Toronto's airport is one of the only airports in the world that NEVER closes. NEVER. No amount of snow, sleet, hail, nothing shuts that airport down. They spend billions of $$ for snow removal equipment to ensure this. Because of this storm, a lot of flights are getting re-directed to Toronto's airport in lieu of other airports getting shut down. DH said the airport has been crazy busy. Last night I begged him to get up with Bella and give her medicine because I just could not take 1 more sleepless night. My eye's were hurting and I am unable to shake this sickness off because, well of course, you need sleep and rest for that . This mom gets no rest .

On a happy note since DH has bee working a lot of overtime hours, I decided it was in my best interest to...PURCHASE MORE DOWNLOADS!! He he. I got GS UB and S&H Legs & Shoulder, Bi's & Tri's (I already have chest & back).


Justina & Nancy
Thanks for the get well wishes .

Justina
I'm sorry about the man in the UK you have to interact with . I remember when I used to have to interact with the executive "show-offs" from my company's head office. I always tried to stay confident and positive. I know, easier said than done right? I hope things went ok with him. And plus, how could he not like you?! You are such a nice person . Tell him you are best friends with Queen Elizabeth or something .

Have a good day ladies

Hi fit ladies!
How are things going? Yesterday was Chinese New Year. We celebrated on Saturday by having hot pot. Have you ladies ever tried? So good!

I'm so sorry Natasha. Sleepless nights does no good for anyone. It's tough your hubby had to work so much. I did not know the airport never closes! Do you have family close by who can help sometimes? You're right. With no rest you don't get better! I hope Bella is feeling better. It's difficult to see little ones sick. You want to do everything you can to make the pain go away.
I feel like when I'm tired or get no sleep, I can get sick more easily. I don't get much sleep during the week. I don't seem to have enough time to do everything I want to do in a day. Awesome about additional downloads! Something positive has to come out of that!

Not worried about the man in UK. I don't see him often anyway.

I haven't been getting the results that I want as far as fitness is concerned. I know exactly what the problem is; clean eating. I have to do better job at it. My problem area is the middle. I can't seem to get rid of fat there. Have to do something different starting today. Bought a salad for lunch today and had protein with breakfast and mid morning snack! Dinner will be light.

I know I can do this if I put my mind to it.

Nancy, how are you doing with Xtrain? What kind of results have you been seeing? How's your foot?

Have a good day!

Oh my, I HAVE been missing in action, haven't I?
I have been plugging away at work and with my workouts and haven't been as attentive as I should to the check in...
First, I have to tell you, Natasha, how sorry I am that you are SO SICK . I want you to get well VERY SOON, LIKE NOW!!! I hope that you can get back to your workouts, but please take it SLOWLY! Your body needs time to get back to its awesome state of goddessness!
Justina, I know what you mean about the "stall" in fitness gains. I like this rotation we're doing, but I have had to lay off some of the cardio and the weightlifting seems too spread out?
I'm going to try to design a new Spring Ahead Rotation and incorporate Gym Styles, Pyramids, STS, LIS, and Xtrain. It makes my head spin trying fit it all together, but I am going to give it my all! It will probably utilize Burn Sets a lot! I love Supercuts and will use that along with Afterburn every week, as well as All Out Low Impact Hiit. I'll also insert some low impact Tabatas on weight days and hope that that will be enough cardio. I'll post the final product when it's ready!
In the mean time, I am sending happy healing vibes to Natasha & motivational butt-kicking vibes to Justina!

Hi Nancy, Natasha,

Hope you are doing well.

Sunday night was Gym Style Legs, and last night was Gym Style Back and Biceps. I am giving X train a rest for a few days. GS Legs was great. My calves are still a bit sore from Sunday!

How often do you gals do cardio? and the length? I prefer weight lifting but I know I have to do cardio to burn fat. I go back to Turbo Fire often because some of the Hiit worksouts are only 15 minutes to 25. Very short but intense.

Nancy, the spring ahead rotation idea sounds awesome! You have a great collection of Cathe's work. I think I have these dVDs too! I'm also interested in Slow and Heavy. What do you think about it?

Not purchasing now but will keep it in mind when I get bored again.

Natasha,
I just realized that you recently purchased Slow and Heavy downloads. What do you think? Have you had a chance to try? I hope you are feeling better.

Have a good day ladies!

Justina

It's been a terrible few days for me. I just recently found out that my cat is very sick and I might have to put him down . We recently had blood tests done at the vet and got good news and bad news. Good news is that the blood work came back ok. We are treating him with Hyperthyroid medicine and should start to see an improvement witihin 1 week. He has to be on this medicine for the rest of his life. The vet gave us some pills to start out with until their order of gel comes in (you put it on the hairless area in the ear). This is easier than giving pills to a cat. DH is working today, so Bella and I are going to walk over and get the gel. It will be about 3 miles, so that will be some nice exercise. Bad news is that he could still have kidney failure, in which the medicine won't work and he will get progressively worse. The thing is he is 15yrs old now. He might live for a few more years, but realistically he is sick and old. I'm not sure if he will be able to bounce back from this. It pains me to see him suffer. He is such a sweet boy too . He has never hissed at anyone (not even Bella when she was a bit rough). He is super affectionate and very loving. Unlike my girl cat . I'm beyond upset and very distraught.

Yesterday I decided to do Low Max. All 70min on an 8inch step. I felt good, just a little tired. I wanted too quit a few times, but the music kept me going.

Nancy & Justina
I've read your posts. You guys are doing incredible. I will BBL to write personals. Have a great day .
