Today the plan was to do Kelly's neck and shoulder limitation weight workout, but my elbow and shoulder woke me up at 4 this morning hurting. So I did cardio. I did CDorner #169 Steady State Cardio at Home, 32 minutes, 201 calories, heart rate 149/181, 3664 steps ( I got 12 more calories out of this last time I did it, but it seems to get the heart rate up well) I then did Cathe Step Blast from the Body Blast series premix combos 1,2,and 3 adding the stretch, 33 minutes, 186 calories, heart rate 136/169, 2,596 steps. I finished off with CDorner, Just Stretch full body deep stretch, 26 minutes, 41 calories, 36 steps. As usual this was a good stretch. She uses a chair for this and starts with feet and works up doing forearm, wrist and hand stretches and then neck. I accidentally clicked it when I meant to do the one next to it that was a quick mobility and shorter. I have not done this one before. Total time was 91 minutes, 428 calories, 6,296 steps.

Hi,

Today I walked with DD in DC. The painter had to come back and repainted the kitchen cabinets.

Diane - great job on your workouts yesterday.

Good night.

This morning I did CDorner Super Fun Cardio workout # 170 that she did this morning 289 calories, 45 minutes, 4,732 steps. I followed this with her new 10 minute abs and core workout (she uses 10# dumbbells) 31 calories, 11 minutes, 49 steps. Not sure about the steps other than my leg movements may have counted for steps. The last two minutes are plank work with some on forearms. I had to modify at the start because I have to have at least one hand to support my head otherwise I will pay for not doing it. I liked the Cardio workout and it was fun. Pretty much all low impact unless you want to add the optional movements. I added the jacks and harder moves when I did it. Music was pretty fun for the most part. Some boxing moves in it like a lot of her floor cardio work. It got my heart rate up really well today. Total time was 55 minutes, 320 calories, 4,781 steps. I really wanted to hurry so I could get out to the store and post office.

Belinda nice that you got out for a walk in DC. That is good the cabinets are repainted. It seems it is taking awhile to get things done at your daughter's house.

Diane - it is taking awhile for things to get done at DD house, she stayed at mine house for the last few weeks while her brother visit. I have a huge house. Great job today. Hope you get out to the store and post office. I am tired from all that running around today.

We had to put ChuChu to sleep today. He couldn't get up to do this business this morning, when we tried to help him he couldn't stand or hold himself up anymore. He kept collapsing. He stopped eating and drinking water. Before we took him to the vet, we stopped at Burger King and got him a cheeseburger without all the fixings. He ate the cheeseburger at the vet, we had a private room. I miss him so much!! ChuChu was a rescue, he was almost 17 years old. Very sad day. I can't stop crying.

Today I did CDorner's Advanced Step Aerobics that she filmed this morning. I had to forward fast past the talking and advertising which was 12 minutes so the workout was 60 minutes with a couple of quick stops, heart rate 128/163, 281 calories, 4,668 steps. This was good, but I really do not like the disco music all that much. I decided to save the new Advanced slower pace one for when I need a shorter workout. I also did Coffey Fit Raw : shoulder/neck limitation workout, 35 minutes heart rate 103/127 , 118 calories, 534 steps. Total time today was 95 minutes, 399 calories.
This workout has 3 rounds of the same moves done for 45 seconds

squats 15's
biceps curls 12's
reverse lunge alternating 15's
triceps kickbacks arm anchored 12# db
no weight balance knee up and circles alternating
anchored scapular squeezes 12# dbs

Belinda, I am so sorry. My heart goes out to you. I thought it was unusual for you not to check in. Wow, on him being 17 years old! I know you are heart broken. ((Hugs))

Diane - I couldn't stop crying yesterday. Everything around the house reminds me of him. I can't get myself to move his bed/food bowl out of the living room. All the dogs I had ChuChu was the longest living one. I am so thankful we had him in our lives.

I did CDorner's Step Aerobics Int/Adv slower paced workout which she says something like bpm 127 max. I got it up quite a bit higher, but I added intensity to it. I almost quit, because it felt slow at first, but she sped it up and it was better. Also I did not care for the music. This was 39 minutes, 223 calories, heart rate 139/165. I added some jumping and faster paced steps etc.. 3,504 steps total.

Belinda, I understand. They stay with us in our hearts. I still get a lump in my throat and feel teary when I think about Mudd or look at pictures. I kept Mudds bowls and collar for years before I let them go.

Hi,

I am still here. I don't feel good at all. With everything that is going on, I got a sinus infection. My throat is killing me. I called my doctor he wants to to get a covid test tomorrow before I go to the clinic for blood test. He doesn't think I have covid but he wants to rule it out. I know it's my sinus/ear/RP. I really don't want to take any antibiotics. I don't know what would help like antibiotics does? Any help would be appreciated.

Yesterday Chu Chu got cremated :( I miss him so much. All his things are still in the living room, can't move it.

Diane - they sure leave their paw prints in our hearts. I have a lump in my throat and cry when I think about Chu Chu :( I still have Brawlers collar. Maybe one day I can let go.

That's it for me today. BBL!

Today I did Step Jump and Pump step premix followed by Step Blast Challenge and Blasts with the stretch, 44 minutes, 211 calories, heart rate 126/167, 3,589 steps. I also did CDorner Mobility Stretch # 47 28 minutes, 40 calories, heart rate 78/111. I really needed the stretch. For some reason I really hurt all over this morning. Total time was 72 minutes, 251 calories. I did not check the steps for the stretch which I am sure was not much. I had to stop for the zoom class before doing the stretch.
I am so weak and tired lately. I have not problem falling asleep which is unusual. I sit down and fall asleep. Just feel weird. Maybe it has to do with the arthritis. My Garmin keeps telling me my body battery is low. It was at level 30 after sleeping 6 hours. It encourages more rest. Maybe when school is out, but I have lots of appointments and a couple of trips in the plans.

Belinda, I am sorry that your are feeling bad on top of everything. I am sure stress has set some of it off. I use oil of oregano when I feel like I am coming down with something I use oil of oregano drops and put it in some water. It is antibacterial. I used it when the covid virus first came out whenever I went to the grocery store. Although covid is a virus. Doctors generally wait till it has been going on long enough to warrant maybe needing antibiotic as it is useless if the problem is caused by a virus. But, your situation is different. Garlic and ginger are helpful as well along with vitamin C. I use vitamin C effervescent packets every day morning and at night. You can put oil of oregano in a bowl with steaming water and a towel over your head and breathe it to help clear sinuses. I usually make sure it is Mediterranean oil. My aunt who is in her 80's recommended it to me as she said it keeps her well. She does not even use Medicare or medical insurance because she in rarely sick. Not sure I am much help for you. Other than that antihistamines and the usual over the counter stuff. I too try to avoid meds as much as possible.
