    She's baaaack! Sorry everybody. Needed some R&R, and my DH has been in Florida for the last few months. So, I tuned out, and went to Florida. I didn't want to deal with the Winter, and my bones definitely didn't. Eighty degrees, but the humidity has been overwhelming, for this desert rat! I...

    Lifting barefoot

    Barefoot here. I like my feet very flat, and planted in the ground. No heel lift at all. I also think barefoot is great training for balance.

    Hey guys! My most sincere and deep apologies. It has been a crazy Fall around here. Decided to sell our house in Connecticut, so I have been back and forth cleaning it out, and getting it ready to show. Yea, I know, how stupid are we? Nobody wants to walk through three feet of snow to look at a...

    This Tom! Exactly right, keep using that cane. Who cares? Thanks for the the pull-up encouragement, Lisa. Some days I feel like most of my weight is on my assistance band. Have I told you lately, I hate pull-ups? Yesterday was lower body, and some knitting and crochet. I’m teaching myself, with...

    Today was my second upper body workout of the week. Dips, pull-ups, and a bunch of cable work. That’s it!

    Thank you, Cathe.

    Oh my gosh!! Hats off to you! Thirty minutes on a bike, and I am so bored and done. Now, Mountain biking? I love! Congratulations on your achievement!

    Oh Tom! I read your post and almost cried. Yes, this crap does hit fast. Take care, and have a great vacation, in spite of yourself. Lisa, I’m fine. Just so much “stuff” that needs to get done. Hope you are well. I’ve been lifting heavy, that ain’t much these days. Monday was chest, shoulders...

    Today was a lower body workout with hip thrusts, and ball roll-ins. Ball roll just fries my thutt. Squats and most of the usual torture moves. That’s about it. See you tomorrow. Yes, to the wine samples!!

    What happened to Nicole and Lisa?

    I get them confused. I may be having a senior moment but, I believe the one with the long dark hair cut her hair. But, like I said, could be a senior thing.

    Tom! So sorry to hear about your wonky hip! I knew you were having issues, but seems to have gone super wonky quickly. So sorry to hear this! Can you do hip thrusts? Bret Contreras says hip thrusts are the best hip and butt workout ever. Butt lifts in a stability ball or floor are good. Hope...

    It’s just cables. The pulleys are adjustable. High or low. Love it. Very simple, like cables in a gym.

    Today was pull-ups push-ups and dips, with cable press downs and cable curls. Not long, not killer, but it worked. Today is loaded, so that’s all the time allowed. Make it great!

    Lisa I totally understand your feelings about Mindy. I must add she’s hit or miss with me. I have a DVD by Mindy, and I think she drank fifteen pots of coffee before filming. I got a cardio workout just listening to her. She was talking so fast, I was expecting a helium voice any second, so I do...

    Remember these OBGs

    I have a couple of Anni’s workouts. Will definitely pull them out. I’ve been eyeing Kari Anderson lately. When I lived in Seattle, I was a member of one of her fitness studios. She was a beautiful dancer. Another one to re-visit. Now that I think about it, I have quite a few to re-visit.
