Tom, glad the shot didn't hurt! But maybe for Karma it should have hurt a little bit since those dental cheek and gums numbing injections hurt SO BAD. And this is coming from a person who has delivered a baby without any pain meds. Lol. Are you noticing any hip improvement yet? Enjoy that pool. It's my goal to make my iron friends proud, lol

Next inclined flys 45s 2x10 then 3x10 skullcrushers and 2x10 pushdowns. Weight wise things were awful but Rom was great!!

Hi guys! We decided to take a week or so in St, George. Great place in the winter, but very hot in the summer. (But we knew that, right?) Great time, biking in Snow Canyon, and pool time. Looking for a place to be Snowbirds. Visited Vegas, that place is a sh!thole, but there are some beautiful neighborhoods and homes there. But, I have no desire to live there. But, it has to be a place with no humidity. So, Florida is out. Not something that needs to be decided right now. DH still loves working. But, here we are, and I guess I will mow the lawn today. So, I better get going. Going to be close to 100 degrees today. Nice to be back in my own bed, and posting on the forum with my virtual friends. Have a great day!
 
Karen, Snowbird hunting sounds exciting, if you can ever pry your DH away from the office! Yes, Vegas...like AZ... have nice home options but are hot hot hot. Glad you enjoyed yourself in steamy St George, glad you're safe, and glad you're back!

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 up, I never said to my Mother, "I'm bored!" She would put me to work immediately. Made myself scarce in the summer.
Today was a Cathe Live. A Bootcamp workout. See you tomorrow! Have fun at the lodge, Tom!
 
Karen, love that slip n slide idea! I think my kids could handle that next summer after getting a few more sessions of swimming lessons under their belts. I whine to you about kid summer boredom because I knew you'd get it! I was the same way as you in childhood though, better not tell Mommy Dearest about boredom or we'd get in trouble and put to work. I might be too soft with my kids but I'd rather be that way than be too harsh. I've gotten so far behind on my Cathe Lives! Her boot camps are great, glad you enjoyed.

Tom, are you still at the Lodge? I hear that place is great for families! Sometimes guilt is the best motivator.

Did some heavy total body yesterday and a mish mosh of cardio today, my own creation. Happy Thursday!
 
Karen, that sounds FUN! Just like riding a bike, huh? Comes right back to ya.

I thought I was doing old school Cathe today with Metabolic Mash Up Live from a couple years ago, but you win Karen!

Tom, waving hello to you! Have a great weekend buddies!
