Cheryl Great job on AOLIH and core 1 plus your walk! You are amazing going out when it was rainy and icy.

This morning I did a bike ride in Turkey and then did some core and yoga work! We are in single digits today but it is supposed to get a little better over the next couple days.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great job on getting your cleaning done and enjoying the nice weather.

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core work, bike ride, yoga, and cleaning. Also on Monday’s heavy weight and core workouts!

Cheryl Great job on AOLIH + core! It sounds like you have some energy back. You are so good about getting walks in even in crappy weather!

Julie Great job on your bike ride in Turkey and yoga. Yuck to the single digits. We are having some really cold weather too, a few nights this week it’s going to be in the 20’s. It makes me not want to leave the house!

It looks like I forgot to post yesterday, but I did Cardio Supersets Plus step. This morning was Afterburn which I‘m sure I will be feeling in my glutes tomorrow! Have a great day.

Julie Good work on your bike ride in Turkey and your core and yoga work.

Pam I am going to try to walk every day no matter what it is doing outside. I am really tired of sitting on the couch :p. Great job on Cardio Supersets + Step and Afterburn.

This morning I did Burn Sets Chest, Back and Shoulders. After that I walked down to the SPCA to turn in my staff T-Shirts and key and then walked a bit more in the area to get my steps in. In the afternoon I went out to my mom's as she needed to get a few things and stopped off at the casino for a bit. Both of us didn't win a thing and it didn't take long to lose our $20. After dinner I had to take Zoey out for a walk since our friend still wasn't home from work and would still be a while. It was pouring rain as another atmospheric river has moved in. It is very warm here but boy is it wet. Zoey didn't complain when the walk was over as she was eager to get in the door. It should be interesting with all of the rain and all of the snow that is now melting.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on CSS plus Step and AB! Those are both pretty tough back to back. I really wish I was a bear that could hibernate in the winter. Well actually, if I am wishing for things, I wish I lived in a year round tropical climate.

Cheryl Great job on BS CBS and your walk! As long as you had fun at the casino, that is the most important thing. That was so nice of you to walk Zoey in the rain. Hopefully everyone stays safe and there are no more issues with all that rain and snow.

This morning I did a heavy weight workout and some core work. I am taking Benny back to the neurologist today. He has not had a seizure since he had them back in October so hopefully things are good. They just want to see him to make sure that everything is still ok and do their own exam.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great jobo n BS CBS and your walk to the SPCA. It’s amazing how fast you can lose money in a casino! Wow, that was really nice of you to take Zoey out for a walk in the pouring rain. I hope things don’t get too crazy with the rain and the melting snow.

Julie I’ve been doing Cathe’s December rotation and it has a lot of tough workouts back to back. I’m with you on the tropical location, that would be awesome! Great job on your heavy weight workout and core work. I hope that everything goes well on his neurologist visit. I’m glad he hasn’t had any more seizures. How is your DH doing with his recovery from Covid?

This morning was Imax, another toughie. I am a bit sore from Afterburn yesterday, but not as bad as I was expecting. My glutes are usually killing me after the dixie cup lunges. Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core workout. That is great that Benny hasn't had a seizure since October and hopefully the vet will give him a clean bill of health.

Pam Good work on Imax, that is a toughie.

This morning I did XTrain Legs and then I went and got groceries. I did go for a walk in the afternoon even though it was pouring rain. At least there were other crazies like me out for a walk :p. Then I went and got my booster shot.

Pam Great job on Imax! Wow that does seem like a tough rotation; I guess she wanted you to work off those Christmas cookies. DH has been doing better. He is able to do more around the house without getting as out of breath. Hopefully he will be able to go back to work in another couple of weeks.

Cheryl Great job on XTrain Legs! I am so amazed at you going for walks in the rain. Hope the booster shot went well.

The neurologist was good with Benny and unless he has any more issues we don't have to go back. This morning I did my mobility work for lower body and backbends and threw in some core work. I am going grocery shopping today. We are supposed to get a snow Friday and Saturday so I am sure the stores will be packed.

Have a great weekend!

Here is a picture of my wheel pose. I have been working on it for about 7 months about once a week. Although technically a backbend, I can only get into this by lifting off from the floor. I can't drop back into it from standing.

This is what it looked like at the end of May when I first started working on it.

Cheryl Great job on Xtrain legs. You are one tough cookie going out for walks in the pouring rain! Great job!! I hope you don’t have any side effects from your booster.

Julie That’s great that Benny doesn’t have to go back to the neurologist. Fingers crossed that he doesn’t have any more issues. Great job on your mobility and core work. That is amazing progress on your wheel pose!! You must be so proud of yourself. Who cares if you can’t do it from standing, I don’t think I could even come close trying to lift off from the floor, You are awesome!

This morning was Muscle Max. For some reason I’m never excited about doing that one, but then it goes by so quickly. I’m kind’ve like that with all weight workouts though. They are talking about snow here this weekend so everyone is going crazy. There won’t be any bread or milk around for miles I’m sure. :rolleyes: Have a great day!

Julie That is great that the neurologist was happy with Benny. Great job on your mobility work and backbends and core work. Your wheel pose is awesome, you must be very happy with your progress from last May. I think getting into that pose from standing would be almost impossible for most people.

Pam Good job on Muscle Max. Isn't it crazy how weird people get when there may be a chance of snow.

So yesterday morning I got through about 1/2 of Boss Bands Total Body before I stopped. My arm was really sore after my booster and I was really tired too. I didn't do much for the rest of the morning but I did walk down to the SPCA to do my volunteer shift. We got 3 kittens and 3 cats so there were crates to be cleaned and lots of laundry to be done. Today was my day off so I went for a walk this morning and then had a pretty lazy day because I was still really tired from my shot. My last two shots I just had a sore arm but this last one did me in a bit.

Have a great day.

Cheryl It’s great that you got half of the workout in at least when you weren’t feeling up to it. A couple of our friends had no problem with the first two shots but then were down for a couple of days after their boosters. It’s strange how differently it is affecting people.

Yesterday I forgot to post but I did Rockout Knockout. Then I had a wish discovery meeting With a very energetic little 5 year old. I was supposed to deliver a lasagna tomorrow but because of the snow and ice they are predicting for tomorrow I made it yesterday and delivered it this morning. I took today as my rest day so no workout. Have a great day.

Pam Great job on Rockout Knockout. I bet the 5 year old is really excited about their wish. I hope you don't get any snow and ice today.

This morning I was still feeling tired so I didn't do a workout this morning but I did get out for a walk in the afternoon. I hope this feeling goes away soon.

Pam Great job on MM and RK! I hope you are not getting the storm they predicted.

Cheryl Great job on doing what you could with BBTB! That's a bummer about the shot causing such fatigue. Good for you for getting walks in still.

My weekend did not go as planned. Friday I was supposed to do a heavy weight workout. I think I got a little too aggressive with increasing my weight on deadlifts because one rep into my first set of heavy deadlifts and my back was strained. I had to quit and DH had to help me move around the rest of the day. He was such a trooper helping out; he not only did a little chores around the house but also helped me out so much. That night the treadmill service guy came and replaced the belt. I spent the rest of the weekend resting but also trying to get up and move a little and stretch. Each day has been feeling better but I know I am a ways away from being able to do weights. This morning I did a short 20 minute walk in Boston and then did a 15 minute yoga session focused on lower back. I am getting a massage later too and hoping that will help.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great job getting your walk in, I hope you get your energy back soon.

Julie I’m so sorry to hear about your back! Do take it easy and let it get better, That is great that your DH was so helpful. Great job on your walk in Boston and yoga. Hopefully the massage will help your back.

Yesterday morning I did Intensity and the abs from Lean legs and abs. We ended up getting a lot of slushy rain, but no snow. It was an ugly day so we just stayed home, did a puzzle, watched football and had chili. Our power flickered a couple of times but it hung in there. We had a leak in the roof though that started leaking through the upstairs ceiling into the kitchen. The roof guy has already been here this morning and they should have that fixed this week. We already had a painter come to give us estimate before this even happened, so I’m glad we hadn’t done the painting yet. This morning was Athletic training. Have a great day.

Pam Great job on Intensity and LLA abs! Whew so glad you didn't get bad weather. I had seen some of the places out East had horrible weather and lots of damage. That is some luck you didn't have the painting done yet. Great job on AT!

The massage was amazing but I am not sure how much it helped. I do think I might try to get one more often. It was only the upper body and 30 minutes but it really loosed up my upper back and shoulders. This morning I did a 25 minute walk in London and a 20 minute yoga session for lower back. I am still pretty tight and sore in the mornings. I think it is getting better but I am just so impatient. Being impatient is also what got me in this predicament to begin with!

Have a great day!

Julie Well even if it didn’t help, at least you had an amazing massage! It really is such a treat. Great job on your walk in London and yoga. I get you, it’s so hard too be patient. Especially when things start feeling better. Hang in there!

This morning was supposed to be Muscle Endurance but I didn’t feel like doing the one so I did Perfect Pump Lower+upper+extended stretch. I really like those Perfect Pump workouts. Have a great day.

Julie That sucks about your back. I know I have to be careful on deadlifts or what happened to you would happen to me. That is great that your DH was able to help you out. Great job on your 20 minute walk in Boston and your yoga session for you lower back.

Pam Good job on Intensity and the abs from Lean Legs and Abs and Athletic Training. I am glad that you didn't get hit with the snow but slushy rain is messy too. Oh no that isn't good news about your roof but that was good that the painter hadn't done anything yet.

Julie Well at least the massage felt good even if it didn't help too much. Good work on your 25 minute walk in London and your yoga session for your lower back. Be patient you will get back to it but it is important to make sure your back is better before you do.

Pam Great job on PP Lower + Upper + Extended Stretch.

Sunday I did P30 Mobility Basics and then I walked down to the farmers market to pick up a few things. Monday I did Step Sync and then we went and took my mom out for the afternoon. This morning I did P30 Lower Body and then I got some housework done. In the afternoon I went out for a short walk.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on PP lower + upper + extended stretch! I think I would prefer that to ME.

Cheryl Great job on P30MB, your walk, SS, and P30 LB! I never really think about farmer's markets being open during the winter.

This morning I did a walk in London and a yoga session for lower back again. Yesterday I was feeling optimistic that I might be able to go back to weight lifting next week but today my back is feeling more sore than yesterday so now I am not so optimistic.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great job on mobility basics and your walk to the farmer’s market. I envy you having a farmer’s market that close! Great job on P30 LB and your housework and walk.

Julie Great job on our walk in London and you yoga session. I ate to hear that your back is feeling more sore, Do take it easy!!

This morning I went for a bike ride with my friend. It was great to get outside for a ride as I hadn’t been since just after Christmas. Tomorrow we are leaving for Pennsylvania for a wedding. It is really cold and snowy up there so I’m not really looking forward to it, but it will be great to see everyone and I know the wedding will be a lot of fun. I just hope the weather cooperates for the drive. Have a great day!

Julie It is more of a winter market and it is more winter veggies such as kale, beets, potatoes and squash, soups and things like arts and crafts. Great job on your walk in London and yoga session. Be patient you will probably have good and bad days while it gets better. If you can't lift weights next week I am sure you will be able to the week after.

Pam It is so nice being able to walk to the market. In the spring and summer it moves to another location but that is only a 15 minute drive so it is still really close. Good work on your bike ride.. Enjoy the wedding and I hope you have an easy drive there.

This morning I did a Pilates Barre Fusion workout. Then I went and got groceries and then DH had an eye doctor appointment. All that seemed to take up the whole day.

Pam Great job on your bike ride! You must be getting decent weather. I wouldn't want to go where it is cold and snowy either. Safe travels!

Cheryl Great job on Pilates Barre Fusion! The winter market sounds good. I love kale and beets and squash.

This morning I did another walk in London and a yoga session for lower back. I am taking tomorrow off work and hopefully I can get a lot done since last weekend was a bust. DH did quite a bit last weekend but there was a lot he couldn't do too.

Have a great weekend!
