Pam Oh my goodness, that sounds so cute. Hopefully the others seeing the youngest one being so playful will help them come out quicker and warm up to people. Great job on SB!

This morning I did a heavy weight workout and some core work. We are supposed to get a ton of rain today which will melt the remaining snow and create a muddy mess of a yard for the dogs. I wish I had a hose I could hook up right out side my door to hose them off before they come inside.

Have a great day!

Julie Some of the kitties are getting a little more brave. There is a second one who stays out and comes up to us all of the time now too. This morning 4 of them were out in the room when I went in and only one ran back under the couch, so making progress! It will be better when they go to their foster homes and can get more attention too. Great job on your heavy weight and core work. It’s nice that your snow will be melting but muddy dogs aren’t so nice! That is too bad that you don’t have a hose at your side door for that!

This morning I did the cardio from All Step and Perfect Pump upper. All Step was a free dvd that came with the first step that I bought and was how I discovered Cathe And it’s still one of my favorite Cathe step workouts. Tonight we‘re going to a pizza place that has put up heated igloos outside. We have 2 igloos reserved for 9 of us so it should be fun. Have a great day!

Pam Great job on Flex Train. Nice that you could wash your car. hope you enjoyed the Superbowl.

Julie Good work on your heavy weight and core workouts and your run in Romania. I have gone early to Costco thinking it would be less busy but nope it was just as crazy as ever.

Pam Good job on ICE Bootcamp Circuit + Blizzard Blast. Wow 12 kittens is a lot but it would be fun to keep them all wouldn't it.

Julie Great work on your bike ride in Turkey and yoga in Jamaica.

Pam Great job on Step Blast. I am sure they have pretty sharp claws especially when they don't want to come out from under the couch.

Julie Good job on your heavy weight and core workout. Oh no muddy dogs are no fun to clean.

Pam Good work on All Step and Perfect Pump Upper. The heated igloos sounds like fun.

Sorry about being MIA again. This is the first time have sat down at the computer since Friday. So Saturday was a gorgeous day and it felt like Spring. We got the boat in the water and went out for a short paddle. It was a lot of fun and everyone was happy about being back out on the water. Sunday I walked down to the farmers market and then got some laundry done. Monday I did Supersets, it felt good to lift weights again. Then we went out for a walk and then went out for dinner and we invited our friend along. Tuesday I did Hiit Pyramid and then I met a couple of friends for lunch. One of them I hadn't seen for over 2 years so it was nice to catch up. Today I did Lean Legs and Abs and then went and got groceries. Later in the afternoon I went out for a walk.

Have a great day.

Pam That is great about the kittens opening up a little! Great job on cardio from AS plus PP UB! Oh that sounds interesting to be in a heated igloo.

Cheryl How wonderful to have a Spring like day and be able to get out on the water! Great job on Supersets, HiiT Pyramid, and Lean Legs and Abs! Sounds like you had some great days getting in walks, going to the Farmer's Market, and catching up with friends.

This morning I did some mobility work and yoga! Almost all of our snow melted and today it is supposed to get icy/rain mix turning to more snow. So ready for spring! I am taking tomorrow off work.

Have a great weekend!

Cheryl You have had a busy week! That’s awesome that you got such a nice day for getting out on the water. I’m sure that made everyone anxious for the seasonto get going! Great job on Supersets and being able to get back to your workouts. Great job on LLA and Hiit P. So nice to get to catch up with some friends like that!

Julie Great job on your mobility work and yoga, I hope you enjoy you day off work and don’t get too much nasty weather.

This moring was Lower Body Blast and the abs from LLA. It’s supposed to be 72 degrees today so I should have gone for a bike ride instead, but Ii wasn’t thinking! The heated igloo was fun, but we didn’t need the heat because it was in the 60’s, so we had the windows and door open the whole time. The pizza was soooo good though And we had fun. Have a great day!

Julie Good work on your mobility work and yoga. I nope you don't get too much snow. Enjoy your weekend.

Pam Great job on Lower Body Blast and the abs from LLA. You are getting nice warm weather. Glad that you enjoyed your pizza.

This morning I did ICE Rock'em Sock'em Kickbox. Then I had to go out and take my mom to the dentist. She broke one of her front teeth so she needed to get it replaced. Then she wanted to go to the casino so we went but neither of us had any luck, and then I took her to get a few groceries.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on RSK! Oh wow, breaking a tooth sounds painful, but glad she was able to get it replaced Too bad you didn’t have any luck at the Casino, but hopefully you still had fun!

Friday when I got up my ankle was hurting for some reason. I figured it was a kink that would go away so tried to do my workout, but halfway through the warm up it wasn’t getting any better so I decided that was a bad idea and decided to take the day off. It was better by the end of the day but that was strange. Saturday DH and I went for a bike ride and this morning was Athletic Training. All but one of the kittens have really warmed up. Five greet me at the door when I go in now and 2 of the 3 I can drag out from under the couch and they are happy to sit in my lap. The other one still has no interest in being touched at all. Hopefully he will come around. One of the two that I already had has a hernia so looks like she’ll have to go back to the vet this week :(. Hopefully I can take her when I take the others for their spays/neuters on Tuesday. HaVe a great day!

We ended up getting around 8 inches that caused a white out and a 100 car pile up on the interstate and they had to close both north and south bound lanes for almost 24 hours to clear out. Crazy thing is it warmed up enough that all the snow is melted again!

Pam Great job on LBB and LLA abs! That is weird about your ankle but glad you played it safe. Great job on your bike ride and AT and BC original style! Hope everything goes well with the kitties at the vet and the last one comes out of his shell.

Cheryl Great job on RKS! Oh that sounds painful but I am glad she was able to get in and get it taken care of. She must have a high tolerance to pain with being able to go to the casino afterwards. That's impressive. I would be down for the count!

Friday I did a heavy weight workout and some core work then did some things around the house. Saturday was a run in Romania and some yoga and then DH and I tried to put in a new bathroom faucet but ran into a few problems and had to call a plumber at 1.5 the normal rate! Sunday was my lazy day and this morning I did heavy weights and core! Then I had the fun surprise of a software update on my computer that took most of the morning to get up and running. I love Mondays!

Have a great day!

This morning I did a ride in Turkey and some yoga! I also worked on my front splits and when I had my right leg in front my calf was almost fully laying on the floor :eek: I still have quite a ways to go before my thighs and hips are on the floor but I was shocked I have gotten this far.

Have a great day!

Pam That is strange about your ankle but it was smart to take a day off. Great job on your bike ride, Athletic Training and Intensity Series Bootcamp. That is great that most of the kittens come out to greet you. The one who still doesn't want to be touched just needs a bit more time to learn that humans are OK.

Julie Oh wow 8 inches of snow is a lot and that isn't good about the 100 car pile up. It is a good thing that you didn't get caught up in it. Good work on your heavy weight and core workout, your run in Romania and your ride in Turkey and yoga. That is great on how far you have come with your yoga and doing the splits. That is not fun about having to get a plumber but hopefully it didn't take him too long to install it for you.

So Friday I decided to take the day off. I did get a lot of cleaning done though. Saturday I did RRUB and then vacuumed and cleaned the carpets. Sunday I went out dragon boating and it was a really nice day out. It almost felt like spring. Monday I did Push Pull and then went out in the afternoon and cleaned up a bit outside. It was a holiday here yesterday so my mom, brother and SIL come over and we went out for dinner. This morning I did RWH LI Hiit 1. It was another nice day out though it was cold but I did go out for a walk. The wind was brisk especially when I walked down the pier it was quite windy there.

Have a good day.

Cheryl That always feels great to get so much done. Great job on RUUB and cleaning the carpets! I wish Spring was here already and to stay. Great job on PP and RWH LI Hiit 1! How nice to get together for dinner with your family.

This morning I did a heavy weight workout and some core work. Today is my in office day and I really struggled to come in. Not only did I hate leaving my babies but it is so cold out in the teens.

Have a great day!

Julie Wow, the 100 car pile up sounds terrible. I’m glad you were home safe during that. And it melted so fast! That is crazy! Great job on our heavy weight workout and core work, run in Romania, and yoga. That stinks that you had to call a plumber on a weekend, but I hope you are happy with your new faucet. Great job on your heavy weight and core workout. What a way to start Monday with a software update messing everything up. Great job on your ride in Turkey and yoga, That is amazing about your front splits!!!! WOW, I am impressed.

Cheryl Great job on getting your cleaning done, RRUB, and dragon boating! I love the bonus spring-like days! Great job on PP. That’s nice that you got to go out for dinner with the family. Great job on LI Hiit and your walks too!

Julie Great job on your heavy weight workout and core work. It is so hard getting motivated to go outside when it is that cold out!

Yesterday was a busy day. I had to take 4 of the kittens in for their spays and neuters. I was a little worried about getting them all in a carrier, but it was easier than I expected. Then I had a wish delivery for a little girl who is going to Disney. She was very cute, but I’m not sure she understands yet about what the trip is going to be like. I came home and did my workout in the afternoon which was weird. I did P30 HI Hiit and pyramid pump upper body pyramid up only. Then I went and picked up the kittens. They were all a little mad at me and didn’t want any pets last night, but they are over it this morning. This morning was Cardio leg blast and abs from ME. The most scared cat is getting much braver. He came over to me for pets on Monday for the first time. He loves to look out the window and I was sitting by the window and he kept coming over and getting a little closer to me everytime and finally was rubbing against my arm and purring. He still runs around if I try to go toward him, but I’m happy that he is starting to come to me. The big test will be getting him into a carrier to go to the vet tomorrow. Wish me luck! Have a great day.

Julie Good job on your heavy weight and core workout. It is so hard to go outside when it is that cold out.

Pam They probably didn't know what the carrier was for, just wait they will get to know what it means. Glad that they got over you taking them to the vet and that your scared cat is now getting braver. He just needed a little bit more time to come around. Great work on P30 HI Hiit and pyramid pump upper body pyramid up only and cardio leg blast and the abs from ME.

Today I did Gym Style Legs timesaver. I didn't have time to do the whole 70 minute workout. Then I went and got groceries and then I went out to take my mom shopping. She wants to find a dress for my brother's wedding in April. She didn't find one but I did. I will take her out again next week to see if she will have any luck.

Have a great day.

Pam I do love my new faucet! Great job on P30 Hi HiiT and Pyramid UB Up only! Oh my goodness that is cute they were mad at you but glad they got over it quickly. Great job on CLB and ME abs! Oh yea, so glad the scaredy boy is getting a little braver and allowing you to pet him. Good luck on getting him to the vet.

Cheryl Great job on GLS Timesaver! I hope she finds a dress she likes for the wedding.

This morning I did mobility and yoga work. We are supposed to get a few inches of snow today. Are we not done with this yet? I am going to take tomorrow off work and going to try to get a lot done for meal prepping and around the house.

Have a great weekend!

Cheryl Great job on GSL timesaver! It’s great that you found a dress for the wedding and hopefully your mom will soon too.

Julie Great job on mobility work and yoga. Seriously, it is time for spring! We are getting close though. I hope you get a lot done on your day off and get some time to relax also.

This morning I did Crossfire. My DH is painting the exercise room so I had to haul all of my stuff down to the basement, then we couldn‘t find the remote for the dvd player down there. I went up and got the other dvd player but by the time I got back with it DH had found the remote. Between that and hauling all of the weights downstairs I got a pre-workout in. THe trip to the vet went smoothly because I decided last night to move the scared kitty to a small bathroom so I would not have to worry about trying to catch him this morning. I knew I wouldn’t be able to sleep because I’d be worrying about it. I put him in a little bathroom with a litter box and an open carrier and he was sleeping in the carrier so it made it easy. I feel bad because he just wants love but he’s so scared. He is going to another foster tonight along with one of the other ones who is super friendly, so hopefully he will adjust quickly. Have a great day.

Julie Great job on your mobility and yoga work. We got a bit of snow last night as well. I am done with this too. Enjoy your weekend.

Pam Good work on Crossfire. You sure did get a pre-workout in moving all of the equipment around. He made it easy for you this morning by sleeping in his crate. It sounds like he has come out of his shell so he should adjust quickly

This morning I was really tired so I just went for a short walk instead. Then I made some soup and in the afternoon I went to the SPCA for my shift. I was going to pick up our neighbor's dog from groomers after my shift and ended up picking up Zoey from the same place as well as they are also a doggie daycare. Our friend was going to be stuck at work late and wouldn't make it there before they closed. I needed DH to come with me because I wouldn't be able to look after both of them. We were the doggie taxi today.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on CF! Oh that is funny about the remote. I guess you were extra warmed up. Oh, poor kitty, I hope he opens up. Makes me sad that he is so scared.

Cheryl Great job on getting a short walk in before your shift started. That is too cute about being the dog taxi!

We got a few inches of snow last Thursday/Friday but it was relatively warmer over the weekend so it melted and the yard got nice and muddy for the dogs. Friday I did a heavy weight workout and some core work and then did a little cleaning and ran some errands. Saturday was an easy hike in Romania to Vlad the Impaler's supposed castle which inspired Dracula and then did some yoga and more cleaning. Sunday was my lazy day. This morning was more heavy weights and core work. DH finally got his truck finished from being overhauled and is doing his first day back at work since mid-November. Supposed to be decent weather for him.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great job on your walk and your doggies taxi service. I bet your neighbor’s love having someone that they can count on like that when they need it.

Julie Oh boy, muddy dogs. I’m sure they thought it was great. Great job on your heavy weight workout, core work, cleaning, errands, hike in Romania, heavy weights, and core work. I hope your DH has a good day back to work.

Friday I did KPC and then did a bunch of running around. Saturday was my rest day and I had a wish celebration in the afternoon and a friend’s birthday party that evening. Sunday I was going to do Butts and Guts, but I would have had to take too much stuff downstairs for it, so I did Great Glutes instead. DH finished the exercise room and put it back together yesterday, so this morning I was back in the usual space doing Step, Jump, and pump. The 2 kitties that got neutered on Thursday when to their foster that evening and the other 2 girls go tonight, so I will be down to 4. It’s funny because I wanted some friendly kittens to help Brandy and Bubbles be more social, but they have come so far they are friendly than all but one of the new ones. It makes me so happy to see them make so much progress. Have a great day.

Pam Its funny about the dogs. Benny doesn't intentionally get muddy but he is a big dog and sinks into the mud. Gunner is about the same size but he tip toes around the mud because he hates getting his paws wet! So we really only have 2 out of 3 to wipe mud off of. Great job on KPC and for substituting GG for B&G! Did you paint the exercise room a fun color? Great job on SJP! Oh that is great news about the kitties opening up so much.

This morning I did a ride in Turkey and some flexibility and yoga work! Yesterday was a crazy day at work and today will probably be just as crazy with lots of meetings.

Have a great day!
