    My best to you and your family Lisa, I totally understand. DH, and small children are very time consuming!

    Well, I made the mistake of going to Costco on Monday. Evidently everyone is having a nervous breakdown over the Coronoviris (not sure how it is spelled, my apologies) Found my way to the entrance, and made it out of the store this morning with my four cases of water and toilet paper. Good...

    Hey guys! Tom!!!!! So glad you're back!!! Great work!!! Lisa, I don't blame you with the raccoons and skunks. Trash duty would definitely be left to DH. We do get raccoons in our yard, they climb on the fence, and eat the grapes. They growl at you if you come near. Their teeth are just nasty...

    Oh my! Tom I need to read about your raccoon. Reminds me of when we moved to SLC, we rented for a year while we looked for a house. Our next door neighbor asked us if we had a cat or a dog, because something was coming in their house through their cat door, and eating the cat food. We didn't...

    Hey all! Yesterday was a busy day, running errands. I managed a quick workout. A You Tube bike workout. Felt good, and got the job done. Today I think is a bodyweight day. Last week I tried Ripped with Hiit. I was sore for days. It's very cold here, sun is shining, but very cold. It's been a...

    I am using a Fahrenheit thermometer, and have broken the thermometer into 5 degree increments, with an assigned color to every 5 degrees. So, if it's 35 degrees, and I have assigned dove grey to 35-40 degrees, then I crochet the dove grey into the scarf. If it's 55 degrees, and I have assigned...

    Well, I have decided to start my workout adventure with "Ripped With Hiit." Evidently, it's been a very long time since I have had a decent workout. I'm so sore, I can hardly move. So goes the battle. It has been very cold here this week. Saturday and Sunday the temperature was in the 50's...

    Giving up on a new Ripped with Hiit from Cathe

    Another Sydney Cummings fan here. I also like "Fit Body By Julia," also on You Tube. And yes, they are free!

    Hi friends! Today was 40 minutes of bodyweight exercises from the book "Convict Conditioning." It's all about bodyweight, and that's all I want to do these days. Not much to report. Tom, hope things are going well for you, after surgery. I'm sending Twizzlers too, but, I have eaten half of them...

    Old lady checking in. Today was definitely a made up workout. Rode the bike for a few to get my heart rate up, then 10 burpees. More bike, then lunges, so alternating between bike and total body exercises. Getting back into this is going to be a challenge. So, let the battle begin! I’ve heard...

    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.
