    Workout Rant: I Hate Drills!

    I like drills For one, they are easy to do, hardly any learning curve. I teach classes, so it's easy to "borrow" drills from several DVD & put them together. It's the wave of exercise right now, just like Zumba is a current rage. I have such a low boredom threshold that the drills are fine...

    How fit should a group fit instructor be?

    "Like you walk your talk" That's how I think a PT/Group Fitness Instructor should look. I think it gives more credibility to what you say to your clients. To me it's sort of like going to an overweight doctor who tells you to lose weight.

    Do any of you Catheletes know if AT&T Uverse has any exercise channels? Am I right that Fittv is no more & has become Discovery Fitness & Health?

    The Best Diet of All

    This is from Bottom Line Secrets Daily Health News - one of the best, most concise articles of diet I've ever seen: Many diets tell you to restrict certain nutrients or foods—or they tell you to load up on just one or a few. For instance, the Atkins Diet advises you to avoid food high in...

    Hello, I've missed you all!

    Me, too, with Cardio & Weights Pulled this one out after YEARS of not doing it (did newer stuff) and did the Timesaver step premix - was able to do it with very little difficulty! Testament to Cathe's cueing, I think. Always did like that premix.

    Can you MATCH Cathe?

    My Cathe goal I would love to be able to match Cathe on chin-ups ala STS - she does 12, so that's my target number. To me chin-ups/pull-ups are THE hardest exercise ever.

    RIP Dick Clark

    I remember Dick Clark I remember the Bandstand days back when it was on during the week & originated in Philadelphia! He was not much older than a teenager then! What a business genius he was! He had a memoir that I read some years back called, I think, "Rock, Roll & Remember." I think it...

    If you have trouble learning Cathe's complex step routines...

    Good tip I play my dvd's at home on a laptop, and it has a slo-mo feature. This is a good way to learn the more complex moves, since I long ago learned that the best way to do a Cathe dvd that is new to you is to view them first at least once before you attempt to do them.

    What are workout distractions you simply cannot endure?

    One biggie..... I hate interuptions!!!! Don't talk to me & don't call me 'cause I won't answer the phone when I'm working out! Other than that, I try to be very prepared with the water & the room temperature, equipmen set-up, etc., so there are no delays that way.

    Pre-order 30% off bonus purchas

    I pre-ordered the new workouts & took advantage of getting another DVD at 30% off - got Cardio Hits because I'd gotten rid of all my VHS workouts. I LOVE those old Cathe step workouts (Step Fit, Power Max & Step Works)! I played snippets of them to see if I remembered them & I did! Can't wait...

    Frustration with weight gain

    My two cents My take on your situation coming from my YEARS of trying everything to get my weight under control: 1) I think you're exercising too much. You may be setting yourself up for burn-out. Maybe consider exercising once a day, six days a week. 2) Most often it's more about eating...

    Easy apple cobber

    Serveral store carry the SF cake mix Walmart - the cheapest I've seen it; and several other local stores carry it - it's not hard to find. I sure would never know it was a sugar free dessert if no one told me!

    Easy apple cobber

    sprite It's liquid - you don't bake the cake according to the instructions on the box - don't add water, eggs, etc. It's just cake mix, apples, sprite & walnuts.
