    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 4/28

    Sorry to be MIA. I have been feeling very antisocial. I am finally (hopefully) getting over tendonitis. Horrible pain above my left knee. I was told that when the thigh muscle is too tight it stretches the tendon above the knee and it gets inflamed. We have been doing lots of stretches but...

    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 2/3

    Good morning all, I haven't done anything but my gym twice a week since I got over flu/virus. I just didn't have the energy to get back in the rotation and now that I feel better I am swamped with work. That will get manageble later. I will have just as much work but they won't want their...

    Deb I always get a flu shot but not this year. I needed to get the shingles shot first and never did that either.

    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 1/27/13

    I'm finally alive again. I had two weeks of flu/cold and then almost a week of the virus. Haven't done much of anything. I only got one week of the rotation in before I was too tired and sick to workout. If this makes me immune during tax season I will not be mad but otherwise it was a...

    I'm alive. I had flu/cold for two weeks and then the virus for almost a week. Tuesday and Wednesday I finally felt like eating and just ate junk. I think because after the gym Tuesday I went to the store and the first thing I ate was a doughnut. It was downhill after that. Jann Thanks...

    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 1/13

    At age 62 you only receive 75% of the amount you would receive at age 66(full retirement age) I'm thinking 1/2 of dh ss (he has always been at max. wages for ss) will be better than 100% of mine and if I take that at 62 it is only 70%. I don't think I will wait until 70 but will take at 66...

    Valerie 1 serving of quaker oats comes up 150 calories and that is 1/2c dry. Packaged foods are the easiest because they are set up for that package size. Deb I decided not to yell at you on mfp but you don't seem to eat many veg. Because NS has them as unlimited I don't always post them...

    That's a *big* weight you got there...

    I only do my heaviest work with my trainer spotting me. I have gone to failure and I really couldn't lift the barbell even one more time doing chest presses.

    That's so funny. My mother is 87 today. Since I will not go beyond 25(they even have a 25 candle for me that they bring out every year) my mother gets to be 50 since she is 25 years older.

    I took Friday as the rest day just seemed like I needed it. Legs will either be today or tomorrow. Can't decide if I want to do low impact hiit today or tomorrow. Decisions, decisions.

    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 1/6

    Deb what a nice visit with your friend. Friday was my rest day. Will have to look at the schedule. I am going to have to really revise the 90 day rotation. It seems like I will end up with 2 upper body in the first half of the week and 2 lower body in the last half if I don't adjust it. I...

    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 1/6

    Myfitnesspal is just a calorie counting program but it does have everything in it's data bank. Or at least I haven't found much that isn't it it. It tracks your favorites and the most recent items you have eaten so it is very easy to put in what you have eaten for the day. Valerie for me it...

    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 1/6

    The premix was in the boxing dvd Hard strikes. My session at the gym was for bi's and tri's. I was trying to do 2 days at once. I should be really busy in the office today and didn't want to fall behind. I am so annoyed with congress-what else is new. I won't be able to file ANY tax...

    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 1/6

    I had Josh concentrate on bis and tris yesterday. We did some heavy chest/shoulder work also because I never go as heavy at home. I also started to do premix 16 but didn't finish it. Today my ankles are hurting. Ever since I had stress fractures in both ankles I have had to be careful. I...

    I had the trainer at the gym yesterday. I will count that as my bi & tris day. He went over booklet and will be working with me. I may have to move things around. We do upper body on Tuesday and lower body on Thursday. I would like to work both areas twice a week. I also started premix...

    It's funny but with STS I was hungry all the time and I think I ate more and didn't lose weight. I don't seem to be starving this time.
