Hey!

B is doing so much better. We just have a couple days left on his antibiotic.

I got all my workout DVDs The only one I've done so far is PRS#1. I've actually done it the past three days and absolutely love it. I perfected it It's just so much fun!!!! But you know me I just love my complex step choreography. I could see where it wouldn't be for everyone.

My mom is coming in town this weekend so I think we're going to try Knockout Rockout or is it Rockout Knockout lol. B's birthday party is on Sunday, looking forward to that. We are going to have a houseful, about 40 people.

Off to bed for me. I work early tomorrow. Have a great Friday everyone!

Hi gals, where is everyone?? Just got back from Pilates and Trader Joe's. My inner thighs could not sustain the exercises we were assigned today! Prob the Yin Yoga did them in.

It is showering lightly here, low 60s. We sure can use the precipitation! My lawn looks dead, usually a hot July look, never an October one.

Marie, congrats on your upcoming first bday party! A special one indeed! Enjoy yourselves. That's a lot of people!
You rock on nailing PRS#1! High five!

Hello Everyone,

It must be the weather today because I am feeling soooo sleepy. I just want to put my head down on my desk. At least I plan to leave a little early today to make it to the first volleyball game.

I did BS Ch-B-Sh this morning. I am waiting to try the new workouts until the weekend when I am more awake!

Betty I have been trying to do Yin yoga once a week, but it gets hard to fit it in. I like to do it later in the day after my body is warmed up, but the long stretches have really helped my legs feel better.

DD wants to go visit Brown again so we are driving down tomorrow. Seems like we are making a little progress.

Marie, have a fun birthday party for B!

So sleepy too! Zzzzzz.....
Carolyn, what kind of cookies?? I've resisted indulging in the fund-raising white choc macadamia box in my freezer which ds has been making nightly. Trying hard not to eat added sugar stuff. Nearly impossible with the holiday season upon us!

Mary, that's very encouraging that YinY has been helping your legs! Keep at it! I'm so excited about the promises of youthful skin and such every time I do it. Do you think it's real?
Have fun at Brown!

So I've decided I won't do the last 2 Pilates classes until I return from CA. That way I can compare and contrast.
That means all Cathe next week! Oh wait, must cuddle my forearm.
Still haven't showered after Pilates. Better go now.

Hi all, started cloudy but the sun is out now.
Here's a story for you, Jean. A feral cat is hiding under my bush and mewing. It is very sluggish, and a couple of flies buzz around constantly. Not a good sign. Called and left a message at animal control but who knows if they work on weekends?? Any advice till my call is returned?

Made omelets with red pepper, red onion, spinach, mushrooms this morning. (I don't know what came over me! Made bacon too, my fave! All to accompany my Dunkin Donuts coffee. Yum

I liked the cardio effect. when it came time for the band work, she used the pink fw. I used it for the sumo walks and skaters, and thought it was too easy. I jumped to the green band for the side lying stuff. Ouch! I love the ab section with the 8 lb weight. I felt very strong! Thank you HC!! SC was a good one today. Weighted glute bridges,RDL's, goblet squats, and cable hip rotations. I found the cable work difficult to know how to stand. My cable only is at floor level and overhead. He wanted it right in the middle so I used a band. I need to watch a youtube video to figure out my stance. Missy, I hope you are feeling better. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on some of these workouts. Mary, I hope the visit to Brown goes well. What crappy weather this weekend though. Hello Colleen, Jean and Marie!
Carolyn, is StrongCurves a book? Or video? It would be too hard to me to follow a book. You did very well today, girl! I'm just sitting on my butt and reading stuff on my tablet.
Oh yeah, guess what? Dh and I started Breaking Bad last night! In Canada last weekend dh watched the penultimate and series finale with his cousins. I'm not that keen on it. It's kind of gritty to me. I know ColleenK used to watch it. Did you?

I go visit my sis once a year. I love it but of course I'm consumed with guilt leaving the guys at home. Dh hates to travel, and he has had to go to that area twice since July already on business.

Oh the joys of being a woman. Yes, SC is a book. I have tried twice before to do the program and failed. I hate that it is not a dvd. However the other check in that I joined has really pushed me to try and stick with it. I keep thinking that Cathe's dvd's have most of these moves in them, so why not just stick with her?! Ya know?! but, these girls seem so pumped with the program that I decided I have nothing to lose. Except my pancake! lol. DH and I were going to give BB a try but missed the boat on recording the first season. Our DVR got screwed up a couple of weeks ago when they were airing it. Now that new shows have started, we lost interest. Let me know if you think if it is worth it. Thanks for the compliment for todays w/o! I felt guilty that I only walked yesterday. So that gave me the drive to push forward today. Plus, I really was excited to try another new Cathe dvd. Dh is working so that helped too. Must go fill the bird feeders.
Yes, going solo is the only way. The guys would absolutely keel over from boredom! My sis and I like to go to all the TJM/M nearby, the cafe, hit the restaurants we like, go to the outlets...

Whaaaa??? You have another check-in?? Girl, you are taking it to a whole another fitness level!

I think Jean watches BB too. Half way through the first season already (only 7 epi though). Not that vested in the show, personally.
Getting wide sitting here. Almost time for the spin bike again.

Pancake? Are you referring to your butt? I bet you have a smokin' one. You must after all these years of Cathe! Even mine is not bad-looking when I'm wearing fitness pants. (Underneath I know it's all loose flab.) You know yoga butt? That's a compliment, right?

Those moves you mentioned--I have no idea what they are. RHL?

I'm going to do LL&A Monday, likely.
Going for a walk with dh between episodes.
It kills me that I'm home all week and want to go out on the weekends but dh wants the opposite. We are doing nothing today.

Marie, have fun with your rockin' mom. Hope the pahty went well.

Jean, we hardly knew ye!

Hi Everyone. No exercise here . Just trying to have fun while the weather is nice. We have been in the high 80's. We went to the ocean this week. It is amazing how many people are still on the beach. I found a little store that sells nice sea shells and I bought a bunch of them. We went to a craft fair today and I bought a pretty bowl to put my shells in. Then we did some sight seeing. I felt like I was on vacation. We has Happy Hour at our community center last night. I met more people. I haven't formed any friendships yet if you know what I mean. This afternoon I cleaned up a lot of weed trees and weeds from our property. I was using the loppers and pulling roots out of the ground. I am so tired from doing that. I was cutting down a dead pine tree and noticed there was a bees nest with bees flying around. I left the loppers in the tree and quit for the day. My husband got rid of the nest for me. I saw a commercial that showed a bright blue flower pot with yellow mums in it and it was so pretty. So I went on line and found some pretty blue pots and filled them with yellow mums. I have my sidewalk lined with them. I have more plants now than I have ever had. So I am just enjoying my life. Hopefully soon I will get back into exercise but I just seem to be busy.

Carolyn You are doing quite the workouts. I wish I had your enthusiasm. You must look fantastic.
Canasta is a card game and you use 2 decks of cards.

Betty I don't watch Breaking Bad. I think Colleen K was the only one of us that watched it.
I don't know what to tell you about the cat. It could be feral and scratch the crap out of you. Have you heard from Animal Control? Is the cat still there?

Marie Have a good time at B's birthday party. I can't wait to hear about it.

I forgot to tell you that last Sunday's movie was "Mud". That was pretty good. I gave it 5 stars.

No one on our forum seems to be really fired up about the new Cathe Dvd's. I am glad I didn't preorder.

I took my Chihuahua in this week to get a dental because his breath was HORRIBLE. He had eleven teeth pulled. Now his breath doesn't even have a smell.

Well I guess that's about all for now. Have a nice evening.

Jean
