    Damage Control

    Last week I got in 5 days of exercise but this week is only 4. Yesterday was legs/glutes and the same 30 spin workout I did last week. I did much better this. I was a sweaty mess when I was done. I'm trying to get in 20 to 30 min of cardio after each weight session. It is hard to fit in...

    Damage Control

    Friday-legs, Sat RWH CST & Abs and a 30 min spin, today was a full body workout. Let me just say that my legs were so sore after the 30 min advanced beginner spin class. I took 3 20 min beginner classes and decided to move up to 30 min Adv Beginner. This is the first time we got out of the...

    I did Legs on Mon, off Tues/Wed, today was CSB, abs#2 and 20 min beginner ride on the Peloton. I think I am really going to love the Peloton once I can do some longer workouts on it. Tomorrow will be legs. Yoga with Adriene is really nice and makes me really miss going to yoga. I'll probably...

    Damage Control

    My foot has really been bothering me even with the low impact. I plan on scheduling a follow up appt with the surgeon. I would really like another x-ray to see if the bone is healing so I know how much I should be pushing myself. Due to the foot pain, I'm shifting focus for the month of...

    I'm enjoying my week off. We spent Christmas Eve at my sisters. It was nice catching up with all my nieces and nephews and their kids. We had fun. Then Christmas day we went to my MIL's and had a great time with everyone. She did Christmas at 12:30 instead of 2:30, so we decided to do our...

    I had to work Friday night and my weekend is a blur. I did workout last Friday, Saturday and Sunday. No workouts so far this week. Work is crazy busy, but today it is slow. We are having a horrific cold front come through. We only got about 4 inches of snow, but the temps are -16 with...

    hmm, I thought I responded to this-must not have posted the reply. Well we are very busy at work. Year end is always awful for me. I have been approved for Extended Work Week, which is basically straight time for any hours worked over 80. I'm a salaried employee so we do not get OT. I had...

    Hey Beth, I didn't realize an entire week has gone by. I'm working on a project and have been approved to work over 80 hours. I don't get OT pay but will get straight time. It's a nice bonus. I worked last Friday which was my off Friday. Today I only put in a 1/2 hour, just enough to...

    Another week has gone by. I'm so bored. Not being able to go anywhere and walk around is really wearing on me. The basement is so close, but not quite done yet. Just a few minor things to finish up. The girls and I cleaned up my workout room a bit, but we can't put everything away yet...

    The girls mom and me have been trying to get taylor swift tickets this morning and the site went down. So frustrating. Wish us luck. We had a code to log in 30 minutes early, but the site went down. Hopefully we will be able to get tickets. My office is on the main floor at the front of the...

    I found some chair workouts on youtube and did one of those this morning. It was pretty basic but it was something I could. I also found some chair ab workouts and did one of those too. It's nice to move a bit for sure. Hopefully this week I can make it to the basement for some upper body...

    The stitches are finally out. They had a hard time getting them out because my foot is still so swollen. I'm in a boot and using a walker. I'll be in a boot for the next 4 weeks. I should be able to ditch the walker in a week or so. My foot is so swollen and feels so tight. I used a...

    It sounds like you had an amazing trip. I lost my MIL's coat at Heathrow airport and we never got it back. The trip was definitely worth buying her a new coat. The long flights are brutal and add in the time change it sure is a rough few days. Is Covid ever going away??? I just had my flu...

    Well I got in a good workout on Monday. Nothing Tuesday or Wednesday. My workout room is a complete mess with the basement bar/kitchenette going in. They had to tap into the water supply in my gym and have the tv and other stuff moved into the middle of the room. I think once the cabinets...
