    Meso 3 for Mounaineering/climbing

    SNM--Password needed to order?

    Hi, How long does it take to actually get my password? I am trying to pre-order the Tower and some other items. When it says that there is already a password associated with my email address, I go to the "forget your password?" link and submit my request. I did this 3 times yesterday and still...

    Right into Meso 2?

    Dear Cathe, Last week I should have finished week 4 of Meso Cycle 1 but I had an awful flu that kept me in bed for a week. I am doing week 4 this week and was wondering since I had a week off last week (although sick) can I just go right into Meso Cycle 2? Any thoughts would be appreciated...

    I'd rather have a piece of pie than do pushups?

    I printed out the Workout Card for Disk 10 and noticed that the first three exercises aren't Pyramid Pushups but Py Maid Pushups. I found it funny that someone subconsciously had pie on the brain when typing that in! I like it! Amy

    muscle definition for the naturally endowed

    Cathe, Even though this may seem to be a crazy question, it is one that is always on mind as I exercise diligently with heavy weights and intense cardio (for the last 20 years, I'm 42). Although I have some muscle definition in my legs and arms, I don't think it reflects my clean eating and my...

    Dog question, please help

    Hey everyone, I have a question about dogs. I have a 7 year old German Shepherd, male, neutered. He has been diagnosed with Lyme disease and although he's being treated, he's not doing so well.

    Thanks for the new move...

    Cathe, I just wanted to thank you for the new tricep move in your new advanced high step DVD. While climbing at Seneca Rocks a few weeks ago, I was in a chimney (two walls of rock about a foot and a half apart) and moving up very nicely until I came to a chockstone stuck in between the walls...

    New workouts...

    My husband just caught me sneaking a look at the newly posted photos of the Body Blast series. He said, "I don't know anyone else who is so excited about torturing themselves!" I thought, "Hmmm, I'll bet I do!" Amy

    Any advice from the educated crowd?

    Hey, all! I need some advice regarding my current training and was hoping to get some feedback. For the last 3 or 4 months, I have been training with my husband. We do a three day split with heavy weights plus long bike rides, runs, intervals, etc. It's really helped me increase my strength...

    Nervous about not using videos all summer

    Ok, I need some reassurance here. My husband, who is extremely fit, has suggested a new rotation for me and I'm almost two weeks into it. I must say that I am really sore (in a good way) and making progress. The only thing that is driving me nuts is I'm not using any videos except for 1/2 hour...

    Self Tanner Revisited

    I need everyone's educated opinion regarding self-tanners. I know we've discussed this before, so please bear with me. I'm going to Cabo San Lucas in mid March and want to keep my face and body looking tanned but without sun damage...especially my face. I may use a lesser SPF on my body, but...

    Cathe, wondering if your husband is as fit-minded as you?

    Dear Cathe, First, kudos regarding the new videos. They are fabulously challenging and I just love them. But, this has me thinking...I started working out with you because I wanted to become as fit as my husband and be able to do the outdoor activities that we love to do together. Thanks to you...

    Off subject: calling foodies for advice

    To the educated "foodie" crowd: I'm creating all the baked goods for a party next weekend. I'm making a low-fat blueberry pound cake and want to snaz up the presentation with some sugered or candied wild violets. I know I've seen this done somewhere and I don't recall it being very difficult...
