    Thank you, Cathe.

    Oh my gosh!! Hats off to you! Thirty minutes on a bike, and I am so bored and done. Now, Mountain biking? I love! Congratulations on your achievement!

    Oh Tom! I read your post and almost cried. Yes, this crap does hit fast. Take care, and have a great vacation, in spite of yourself. Lisa, I’m fine. Just so much “stuff” that needs to get done. Hope you are well. I’ve been lifting heavy, that ain’t much these days. Monday was chest, shoulders...

    Today was a lower body workout with hip thrusts, and ball roll-ins. Ball roll just fries my thutt. Squats and most of the usual torture moves. That’s about it. See you tomorrow. Yes, to the wine samples!!

    What happened to Nicole and Lisa?

    I get them confused. I may be having a senior moment but, I believe the one with the long dark hair cut her hair. But, like I said, could be a senior thing.

    Tom! So sorry to hear about your wonky hip! I knew you were having issues, but seems to have gone super wonky quickly. So sorry to hear this! Can you do hip thrusts? Bret Contreras says hip thrusts are the best hip and butt workout ever. Butt lifts in a stability ball or floor are good. Hope...

    It’s just cables. The pulleys are adjustable. High or low. Love it. Very simple, like cables in a gym.

    Today was pull-ups push-ups and dips, with cable press downs and cable curls. Not long, not killer, but it worked. Today is loaded, so that’s all the time allowed. Make it great!

    Lisa I totally understand your feelings about Mindy. I must add she’s hit or miss with me. I have a DVD by Mindy, and I think she drank fifteen pots of coffee before filming. I got a cardio workout just listening to her. She was talking so fast, I was expecting a helium voice any second, so I do...

    Remember these OBGs

    I have a couple of Anni’s workouts. Will definitely pull them out. I’ve been eyeing Kari Anderson lately. When I lived in Seattle, I was a member of one of her fitness studios. She was a beautiful dancer. Another one to re-visit. Now that I think about it, I have quite a few to re-visit.

    I've got some catching up to do. Wednesday was a rest day for me. So, a little bit of Yin Yoga, and called it a day. Thursday was Cathe Live, a barbell workout that was just what I needed, and it was a good workout. Yesterday was a bike cardio workout with Mindy Milrae. I'm not fond of bike...

    Today was my own made up workout. Three ten minute AMRAP. Upper body, lower body and core. Five exercises per AMRAP. Total body, thirty minutes. My kind of workout again. Great yarn delivered yesterday. Christmas project ready. So I guess I better get busy.

    Ohhhh Lisa, what a great idea. I've never thought about a treadmill, but just walking while watching my favorite you tube channels. (I'm into knit and crochet these days) I can't believe I admitted that, but it's true. Knitting or crocheting seems to quiet my mind before bed. In fact, the UPS...

    Wow Tom! Clean & jerks just kick my arse. Good for you. One of my daughters does CrossFit, and she is very fit. Julia has been posting 30 minute workouts for the Summer. Perfect for me, I don’t have the time in the Summer. It’s also too hot to torture myself for an hour. I did get a Frap, Lisa...

    Hey all! Looks like you’re having my kind of day or week. Got a couple of good workouts Saturday and Monday. But today? Not so much. Haven’t slept very well, so I’m tired, and today’s workout was a big zero. Kinda walked my way through it, and was glad when it was all over. It’s been very hot...

    Oh Lisa! I remember that. Summers so hot, they had to play inside. I invested in a slip n slide. Back then, the best money I spent all summer. They had competitions. The best slide into the kiddie wading pool. Spent a fortune on sun block. Keeping them entertained was a trip. When I was growing...
