Oh, thanks, Marie! You are gorgeous and you don't even look pregnant there! All the girls are beautiful and your Tony is a cutie too. Thanks for posting them!

Missy, how awesome about the compliment! And I'm sorry, I didn't mean to say you weren't entitled to a snack, it just struck me as funny that those were the two things you were buying.

Jean, glad to have you back! It sounds like you were a big help to your sis. You know I think a lot of restaurants cook steak with butter on it. Scary!

Carolyn, have fun on your vacation! I didn't realize that dogs needed life vests!

Good Morning! Last night the modem came and we are back on the internet. Yeah!!!! So I cooked dinner and exercised and had some tv to watch while my husband played on the internet all night!!!!

Woke up bright and early this morning and got my run in. Looking forward to a Cathe DVD tonight.

Meredith---I think it is funny too, my grocery list is always so healthy and then I always throw in a few unhealthy snacks for when I am wanting to be bad. I try to get something that is bad but not too bad. Fruit loops is always in there because 1 serving which is alot, is only 110 calories!!! Yes, lots of sugar....but thats the point!!! hehehe

All of us snack from time to time. Its the only was to feel normal!!!

Marie---You are so pretty. Looking Good Girl! Keep it up!

Okay, so I am driving my husbands truck this week as my truck has a coolent leak and I am waiting on parts. They had to order them and they will not be in till Wednesday. I have been driving it since Friday. Thank god we have 3 trucks....or I would be screwed. But, his truck is so big, it is 3x the size of mine. I will be so happy when my is fixed. My husband is a mechanic, so at least I dont have to pay someone to fix it. That is a plus. But, I miss my little truck. His is a crew cab long bed. It is like driving a semi. Okay now that I vented. Oh, and it is so expensive to drive. (diesel) But, on the good side, Everyone looks at me in amazement that it is a sexy women behind the wheel of this big truck. hahaha

Off to work. BBL!!!

Hello! I did not want to get out of bed again this morning, and finally made it out around 5. I started doing Slide and Glide, but found that my rug is just not big enough to do this workout without constantly moving the rug around, so about 10 minutes into the cardio I gave up and popped in CrossFire instead. WOW! Loved it! It is a very hard workout (and I was going like 50-75% because I had not previewed the workout and didn't want to get hurt) and it's a very good leg toner (Si, are you reading this? ) I am definitely going to have to work up to matching Cathe move for move, but I could see doing this workout quite a bit. I have to say I was laughing at the music. At first, I was like, "cool, I like this song!" and then after listening I realized that the words to all of the songs were different. Funny. It has to be a copyright thing. I also did the Core Bonus section. That was a pretty tough sell after doing the workout, but I modified a ton and muddled through. I really liked the stretch section too. I want to know how those girls do that workout and barely sweat! Okay, they sweat, but not like I'm sweating. There's no way I could wear make-up and do that workout. It would be all over my face by the end! Oh and I could feel my abs today from all those push-ups yesterday. I'm definitely getting some core in on the chest days! Jean, I was thinking of you doing that workout without shoes on. I don't know how you do it! I am feeling like I need some new shoes for the lateral support! Betty, I want you to know that I tripped on my flooring during some of the shuffle moves and thought of you too. I think in the summer, the heat makes the flooring expand or something and it gets little air pockets underneath. Anyway, scared the crap out of me and I brought the intensity down a bit after that.

Have a great day, ladies!

Meredith---I also think Cross fire is awesome. Have you done to the max yet? You will love it!!!! I also think....dang those girls don't sweat like I do. I am normally dripping wet when done. When I did Cross Fire for the first time, I gave it my all. I was so excited getting it, and when I was stretching sweat was literally dripping on the floor. Yuck...but awesome!!!!

Did Afterburn today! I swear, I feel like the Horizontal Conditioning workouts are making me better at doing Cathe's workouts. With my core being stronger, it seems to make so many other movements easier. Like for example with running man in AB today, I found it didn't slay me nearly as much as it used to and I could do the more advanced move with the hands (touching down on the floor instead of keeping the hands up). I can also do the burpee/push up/jacks with two push ups instead of just one (also with the dragging planks). Yay!

Meredith- you are totally right about how push ups work the abs/core! I notice that a lot now. I wish I had pushed myself harder with the push ups in STS when I did it. I think when I do it again here soon I'll be much better at it then before! At least I hope...

Carolyn- that is so funny about your hubby and the jean jacket. lol Mark is a huge '80s guy! I have to veto half is closet when we go out anywhere nice! He was a big lover of heavy metal back in the day, too. It's amazing how we found each other considering how opposite our tastes are!!!

Missy- I lol'd when I read about the sweat...yuck but awesome! So true! I am never happier then when I'm sweating like a madwoman! It makes me feel so happy and accomplished! I think that's partly why I had a hard time with the STS upper body workouts. I knew they were good for me and was building muscle but I didn't work up that crazy crazy sweat like when I combine weights with cardio or even if I did STS legs. I think next time I do STS I may try to do a cardio session in the morning of the day I do upper body and then try to do the upper body discs at night. That would mean two days of the week I would be doubling up on my workouts...can I do it? We shall see!! Ideally I'll be able to fit it in but it may be a pipe dream...

omg, your venting about the truck was hilarious, too! I'm such a car driver! Even SUV's feel too huge to me! Let's just say I'm not the best at estimating distances and parking those huge suckers is not fun for this girl!

Later ladies!

Good Afternoon!

We are all just a barrel of laughs today! HEHEHEHE

Carolyn---Thats too funny.... Hick? Where on earth are you going to find a jean jacket in the middle of summer? My husband is a country boy also. As you can tell.....the truck I am driving. He always has on his blue jeans and a button down shirt. At least I shop for all of his clothing so I pick out nice looking clothes, if it was up to him....well were not going there. He hasn't purchased 1 piece of clothing in probably 10 years. I do all of his shopping. Good Luck with the hunt!!!!

Colleen---I am serious. I too feel like when I am done with my workout if I am not pouring sweat, what did I do? So when I am drenched I am glowing. I always judge a workout by how much I sweated. If not much I always put it to the back of the DVD stack!!!!

Back to work I go!!!!!! BBL!
