Today I did CDorner Cardio to the Beat Low Impact 70's Disco, 23 minutes, 125 calories, heart rate 137/166, 2,339 steps. I then did CDorner Total Body Bands and Dumbbells from today, 50 minutes, 113 calories, heart rate 91/135, 500 steps. I finished of with CDorner Stretch from a cardio, weight, stretch workout, 22 minutes, 37 calories, 49 steps. Total time was 95 minutes, 275 calories, 2,888 steps
Total Body is done 45 sec each move, 3 moves that progress in difficulty. I am trying to catch things up so I can put things together for our trip and taking the dog to my son's house. I saw Kelly has a new Upper Body and Abs workout posted on her Raw channel. I watched and wrote down the moves, but I think my shoulders and back need a rest for a bit. She does most of the moves seated on the step and shows how to do moves in a way to protect the back. She has Sammy do the moves and points thing out as Sammy has recovered from back surgery.

Cathy, I often have to change my workout choice that I had in mind due to soreness from another workout. I have seen doctors offices change staff and move. One of them a doctor and some of the staff moved to another office. I don't know what the conflict was, but I am sure that there was one. I still go to doctors that had moved from the original office. My primary doctor moved with the doctor and others and she took ownership of the office when the doctor retired. My girls and daughter in law worked in both of those offices at some point. I always forget those segments are on the XTrain workout. I should check it out. Most of the XTrain workouts are so long if done in their entirety. I have those rare nights where I am so exhausted I fall right to sleep and stay asleep.
Carolyn, I did enjoy family day. Nice work today on Revd Up Rumble. I have 3 of Cathy's dvd laying out I keep thinking I will do. All are step workouts low impact step workouts.
Valerie, I do understand that it gets overwhelming when you have several things going on and you find yourself dwelling on the outcomes. I do that myself. I want to do the right thing, but I don't want the side effects of most of the arthritis drugs. My foot hurts and I can see obvious changes other areas hurt and I have not refilled my hydroxychloraquine yet as I have enough till my appointment because I may have to make the decision to let him give me a foot injection or other medication. Not sure. I have other problems and am hoping some or the appointments show that there is nothing else serious. The mammogram is next month and after having it done twice last year and the ultrasound I feel more apprehensive.
I agree on the way medicine has gotten and doctors and hospitals being owned by big companies. It is not the most compassionate caring field it used to be. It makes it hard for the doctors. I remember when they were changing to electronic files in our office. I don't think they even have some of my really old records anymore. I saw several doctors retired during all of the covid stuff. The one at the heart hospital that I go to for lung nodule checks retired. I chose him because of background and reviews and because he was older and liked him. Then he retires. My daughter's boss in her office suddenly retired. Around here I know that there are doctors that go to some of the smaller rural communities one or two days a week to see patients.
As healthy and active as you are I would think you should be able to get through this and still be active. I do think as we get older it takes longer to recover from our workouts and sometimes we need to slow down a bit.
