    Pre-Order Cathe's New Ice Series

    Yay! So excited! I didn't read any further than "Intermediate" before I whipped out my cc and ordered. It's my dream come true.

    RWH modification question

    Thanks for the responses. I will shoot for all three sets with lighter weights. Even if I have to drop down to 5 pounds! :) I swear, I thought I was in decent shape, but this series is pretty challenging!

    RWH modification question

    Wow, I am finding the RWH strength DVDs *very* challenging! I'm definitely going to be modifying them for quite some time. Just curious whether I should prioritize weight or number of reps? So far, I've been doing the premixes with 2 sets *and* lowering the weights to match. I wonder if I'd get...

    Need wide toe box shoe with Lateral support

    I use the New Balance 1211 cross-trainer. I have wide feet and PF, and this shoe feels like heaven for all Cathe workouts, including plyo. I bought a pair of Gel Intensity with a coupon, but they feel too narrow with not enough support.

    Best Smoothie Maker

    We have the Vitamix and love it! I used my Christmas/birthday money and got it from QVC 18 months ago. It makes incredible smoothies, and lots of other goodies. I was tempted by the Nutribullet, but for quick protein/fruit smoothies, I'll whip out the immersion stick blender.

    Hard Strikes = foot pain?

    Yes, I have that foot pain, too, on the balls of my feet and toes. It feels like the shuffles that do it. I've switched to my higher-impact shoes for Hard Strikes, and it helps a little bit.

    Tosca Reno Bankrupt RKP

    I was really saddened to hear this news, too. I just renewed my 2-year sub last month! I have no inside scoop, and I'm sure there is more to the story. But I also lost my job of 13 years when my employer took Chpt 7 bankruptcy and closed their doors. I also lost thousands of dollars in back...

    CrossFire and To The Max Premixes?

    Thanks so much for the great replies, everyone! I do love HIIT, but just cannot manage it more than 2x a week. Maybe I'm getting old? :( I talked with a friend who's a exercise physiology professor PhD, and she said the same thing - gave me a friendly admonishment for attempting HIIT 3x/week...

    CrossFire and To The Max Premixes?

    Just curious if anyone does the CF or TTM premixes? I did the July 2012 rotation with a combo of those two three times a week, and it about killed me! I would love to incorporate them like in the April 2013 rotation, but I just cannot face the thought of doing the whole DVD - like maybe ever...

    Order of difficulty

    I can be a grammar snob, too. Sorry that was the first article I found last night as I was keeping one eye on the Golden Globes! :o But the "HIIT followed by steady state" principle is one I've read multiple places. I, too, would love to see a Cathe article on the topic!

    Order of difficulty

    Renee, I've read several places that you *should* do some steady state cardio after HIIT. This is one quick explanation I just Googled. Effective Cardio Workout by Combining HIIT and Steady State Cardio! I'm still trying to learn the choreography from Step Moves, so I love throwing in a Combo...

    I bought mine on QVC a year ago this week. One of my best purchases ever - we use it every single day. Most often, I make green smoothies, but we've also made soups, guacamole, and nut butter. But oh, the nut butter is sooooo addictive - don't say I didn't warn you, LOL! One more thing I...

    I wear these New Balance cross trainers. New Balance 1211 - New Balance - US They do great for the HIIT and plyo workouts. But I've been looking for something a little less spendy to rotate in with them.

    women over 40, whats your favorite makeup foundation brand

    I love mineral powder foundation, too. I just bought some Bobbi Brown BB Cream that I absolutely love! It's as easy as mineral powder, with a teeny bit more coverage (but not as much coverage as foundation.) It's just a sheer beautiful (imo) finish. Here in St. Louis, you can buy it at...

    Disney :)

    Oh wow, these are great tips! We're also planning a trip to Disney for next spring. I think there's an app that tells ride line wait times, and I know there's a GPS tracker app for the characters. We plan to use those when we go.

    Oh, it's fine. I estimate it's only about 1 1/2 mins of processing time in the Vitamix.
