Crystal-So glad you are back safe & sound! You will find early in a marriage that there are lots of learning curves that will test even the best of us. You took on the challenge of FIL & BIL, including the burping & farting, and came through with flying colors, and I'm sure your DH really, really appreciates you for that. He sounds like a wonderful man
Maggie-Welcome back!! Sounds like you have been a very busy lady lately with all the cooking, cleaning & entertaining. I'm glad to hear your ankle is doing better. I wear the studeo shoes that Cathe wore in some of her earlier vidoes. The shoe comes up higher on the ankle and gives great support for all the twisting and turning on the step. I can't find them locally, and I had a hard time finding them online when I last ordered them about 4 months ago. They are great shoes, and I keep thinking I should order more before they are discontinued. If you don't already have studeo shoes, I would recommend them for better ankle support!
Julie-So glad you are taking your rest week, and that we can continue on the same STS schedule. It makes the workout easier knowing that someone else is plugging away on the same disc as me. I really feel for you with the divorce!! It sounds as though things are getting pretty sticky right now. As Gayle had mentioned, I'm sure your lawyer is working hard for you, and if not, I would be cracking the whip and make them start earning their wage. Good Luck and stay strong for the kids (remember their little eyes are watching everything).
Cendrine-Doing Disc 13 with ease!!! What are you Super Women!!! I bet you'll be eating those words tomorrow morning though
. Even though I am seeing good results with Meso 1, I know the muscles are going to be kicked up a notch with Meso 2. I think my DH is feeling a little intimidated with all the heavier weights I just purchased. He keeps telling me "just don't hurt yourself", so the ache in my shoulder has only been shared with you guys. I would hate for him to say "I told you so!!" Good news though, as of 7:00 tonight, my shoulder feels 100%.
Chrissy-I have to confess that the Easter Challenge was not as difficult for me as it was for most of you. We didn't have any Easter candy at the house to tempt me
. Each year when I would make up my DS'S basket, I would purposely fill it with all my favorite candies and then pigout for days afterwards. This year he opted out of the goodie basket so that he could get a little bigger present for his B'Day. He is our tax baby, born on the 15th of April!! I just may have to accomodate him on his B'Day wish considering he saved me many unwanted calories!!!!
Gayle-MY CHALLENGE IS TO CONTINUE MY CLEAN EATING THROUGH THE WEEK!!!
We have company coming for dinner on Saturday, so I need to get mentally prepared for that. This is when most of my splurging occurs. I CAN DO IT!!!! My DH had a scheduled day off today, so when I got home from work, he had cooked up some salmon filets, sweet potato on the grill and green beans. It really hit the spot! I don't get that very often, so it was a nice treat. He and my DS are starting to enjoy the healthier side of eating
. It makes it nice when you don't have to cook 2 seperate meals! Do your kids enjoy the same foods you eat?? My DH & DS are not fussy eaters, and they will usually try most of my concoctions. I hope you had a relaxing spring break!
Kim-I had to laugh when you said you did "CleanMax" today. Can I get that one on a dvd???? How nice to have DH and DS enjoy running also. Your DH must put in a lot of miles to prepare for a marathon. I can't even imagine!! I feel great when I get in 6 miles
. Hopefully your weather has warmed slightly to make for a more enjoyable run.
Jo-How was your day today!!! Are you still recovering from those DOM'S. To be honest, I think I may have hurt my shoulder from holding the 8# medicine ball on the LowMax workout. I tried to swing the ball when Cathe was moving her arms, and I think that motion irritated my shoulder. As you can see, I don't always think before doing
. I'm sure a 4# ball would have been a much smarter option!
Hi to everybody else that checks in....
OK, DS is pacing the floor waiting for the computer. I must close up for awhile. Have a relaxing evening~~~~~
