    Off Topic: Cut Out Sugar Cookies

    I have yet to find a good sugar cookie recipe despite trying 3 so far I found online that claimed they were the best. I'm looking for something soft, holds up well to cut out shapes, but also has great flavor even without icing. The ones I tried were okay, just not wow. I use real...

    Jessica Smith has a few stretching dvds and free workouts on youtube. There is Cathe's Stretch Max, I like to do 2 segments back to back. Other dvds I like for stretching are Suzanne Bowen's Strengthen & Stretch, Karen Voight's Full Body Stretch and Tracie Long's Focus Series Reach Further.

    Restarting everything at 51

    Though not Cathe, I find Jessica Smith to be just as motivating, if not moreso, in a different type of way. Her workouts are something you could do as you start back. Her Walk Strong 6 Week Total Transformation System (ten 30 minute workouts) or her Walk On 21 Day Weight Loss Plan (set of 4...

    Is there somewhere that describes the Combo/Blasts from one of the Calorie Crush workouts? I see in the guide that the other Calorie Crush includes a brief description of what the exercises are. Thanks.

    What's a girl gotta do to....

    Repo, I'd also be interested in more detail on your rotation. Do you do mostly Cathe? Desert, I don't think it's muscle. I guess it's possible, but I've lifted for years. (You've got my favorite profile pic! We were in Utah about 2 yrs ago, did some canyoneering near Zion. Beautiful!)...
