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.
