Today I did CDorner Fast Basic Step #274 calorie torching step cardio, 24 minutes, heart rate 149/177, 153 calories, 2,333 steps. I liked this one as it moves at a faster pace, no fancy choreography without a bunch of learning the moves and breaks. I usually do better with ones that do not slow way down or have breaks because my heart rate drops fast and then it takes a while to get it back up again. I guess that is not a bad thing, but if the workout is short there is not much chance of keeping it up. I followed this with CDorner Totally toned legs, 46 minutes, 106 calories, heart rate 91/128, 633 steps. Total time was 70 minutes, 259 calories, 2,592 steps. Sorry I did not check in yesterday. I am battling terrible allergies right now. So hardly any sleep. I did not work out yesterday and went to my ladies group game day. I took allergy meds before I left, which do not do much for me. Barely got home in time to fix my husband something to eat as he had to go to work early. I took some Qnol sleep last night and slept better, but still woke up in coughing sneezing fits. I am headed to bed soon and am hoping to get a handle on the allergies. It is so windy outside and that makes it bad when I have to go outside. I have to take Friday off from working out as well as I have an appointment with my cardiologist office, I think I am seeing the nurse practitioner for a ultrasound and blood pressure check. I made an appointment for my wellness visit with my primary for a week after my mammogram and arthritis appointments next month. Hopefully I get through all of it and can get some help with a couple of things. That coughing is so hard that the ribcage and breastbone area starts flaring up again.

Belinda, I have had mri's in the past where I actually fell asleep for a bit. The ones for my neck and shoulders were the only time I ever found an mri to be uncomfortable and painful. I am glad it went well for you. Nice work with SBF today. You probalby neede the rest yesterday.
Debbie, I am sorry that they cancelled the event at the school. How frustrating! I am sure it was a lot of work to get it all arranged and not easy to get things worked out again. Great job on Raw Chest and Back.
Jolie, good use of your time while having your car services. I bet the pup liked it. You did well on your workout today even though you did not get enough rest. It was so dry here last year, that I am trying to really appreciate the rain when it comes. It is supposed to rain here tomorrow. I do hope it is not raining when I go to my appointment Friday though as it is a long drive and I hate worrying about flooded areas. The winds are blowing, and you can hear it whistling through the rain gutters.
I had to train my dog though sleet and snowy weather. It was not fun. It made it take much longer as neither of us wanted to stay outside that long.
Roselyn, I bet you are looking forward to spending time with your grandbaby. I kept all 8 of mine when they were babies.
Cam, nice work with Michelle Briehler Full Body Hiit no equipment.. I remember when I lived in Phoenix and it got cold enough for us to have ice patches on the ground. I wore a heavy fuzzy coat LOL. Seriously it seems funny now.
