Cheryl Great job on CCC! That one is very tough. So far so good in no more incidents with Cam over the last couple of days.

This morning I did mobility work and yoga! I am taking tomorrow off work and since it is supposed to rain, I guess I better do some cleaning.

Have a great weekend!

Julie That is great that there have been no more incidents with Cam. I hope it keeps going that way. Good job on your mobility work and yoga.

So Thursday I did S&H Chest and Back, then I got the housework done and then went to the SPCA for my shift. Friday morning I tried to do S&H Bis and Tris but I wasn't feeling that great so I decided to skip it for another time. In the morning Tango started acting a bit strange very lethargic and just laying in the middle of the floor. After a time he went upstairs onto the bed. When I checked up on him a little bit later I found that he had peed on the bed and was lying in his pee. I was concerned so I got him into the vet for a checkup. His checkup and bloodwork were all normal and the same as they were about 6 months ago. Because they couldn't find anything we took him home to monitor. Well last night after dinner he started breathing really really fast and had his mouth open so we took him to the emergency vet. They checked him and did ex-rays on his heart since he had a heart murmur but that was all fine too. He has had some gabapentin for anxiety and he is still out of it. He hasn't been eating or drinking water but I have been able to get him eating Temptations. Not the greatest (it is crack for cats) but at least he is eating it. I have been giving him water through a syringe so we will see what happens once the gabba wears off. We didn't get back from the emergency vet until 1am so I didn't get much sleep. I was up again at 6am to check on him and I went dragon boating. However someone lock up the dragon boat and no one knows who did it or who had the key to unlock it so we had to cancel it. It has been one of those weekends.

Cheryl Great job on S&H C&B! That is so scary about Tango and them not being able to figure out what is going on. I hope he is doing better. What a bummer about the boat being locked up. I am sure you were looking forward to going boating to help with all the stress with Tango.

Friday I did a heavy weight workout and some core work and then did some cleaning. Saturday was a run in Romania and some yoga and then some more cleaning. It was nice out and DH and I sat outside for a little bit but then he wanted to come in so we decided to be lazy and watch the new Dexter New Blood series which we finished on Sunday. It was ok and better than the last season of Dexter at least. This morning I did a heavy weight workout and some core work!

Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core workouts, your run in Romania and yoga. I haven't watched any of the Dexter series. I heard the first series was good.

So Saturday night Tango wasn't able to pee. He deals with Idiopathic Cystitis which means when he is stressed he is unable to pee. So back out to emergency so he could get some pain meds to help him out. He is doing a lot better now and is almost back to his normal self. Yesterday he just wanted to be outside so he was a happy guy. This morning I did Afterburn but it was tough for me. I was so exhausted last night that I slept 10 1/2 hours. Now to get back to normal.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Oh poor Tango! What could be stressing him out poor baby? So glad he is doing better. Great job on AB! That was a tough one especially after having to deal with Tango not feeling well. I guess you really needed that sleep.

I got terrible sleep last night. Just could not shut my mind off. I was able to get up and do a bike ride and some mobility. I was glad it was a lighter workout day or I might not have made it.

Have a great day!

Hi ladies, We got home last night and it’s so good to be home! We had a really fun week, especially our day at Cedar Point, but I’m always happy to be home. Neither one of us slept very well the whole time we were gone, so we were really happy to sleep in our own bed last night! We did a 5 mile hike on Sunday on our way to Pennsylvania. My SIL has a Peloton, so I did 3 good workouts on that while we were there, and then on Monday while we were in the park we walked a lot so I was happy that I wasn’t just a slug the whole time. Cheryl So Scary what has been going on with Tango. It’s good to hear that he is getting back to his old self, I hope that he continues to improve. Julie Very scary what is going on with Cam too! I hope they are able to figure out what it is and that it is treatable.

My kittens were supposed to go for their spay/neuter today, but the vet called yesterday and said that they had to cancel them due to an emergency, so now I’m trying to get them rescheduled. I had some new neighbor kids watching them while we were gone and it sounds like they may be interested In adopting 2 of them, which would be awesome. Their mom is allergic to cats though, so I’m not really sure if they are just getting their hopes up. This morning I did Circuit Blast and it felt really hard after my week away. I did repeat the last 3 rounds to make it closer to an hour, but it felt hard before that :). Have a great day!

Julie We have no idea what stressed him out. That is what makes it so frustrating. Sorry that you still are not sleep well. Great job on your lighter workout day.

Pam That is great that you had a fun week away. Good job on your Peloton workout, your hike and your walks in the park and Circuit Blast. That would be great to be able to adopt the kittens to the boys but if the mom is allergic I bet it won't happen unfortunately.

This morning was Lean Legs and Abs. Then I went and got groceries. It was a hot one here today so we hung out inside until the afternoon when it cooled down a bit.

Have a great day.

Pam Glad you had a great time and got some activity in while you were away. I can understand about being happy to be back home and not sleeping well when you are somewhere else. Great job on CB and pushing through the extra 3 rounds! Fingers crossed you can get the spay/neuter rescheduled soon and maybe the mom will find a way to work around her allergies. It might depend how bad her allergies are. I know I don't have to touch a cat but only have to be in the same room or house as one and mine will start flaring up within 30 minutes.

Cheryl Great job on LLA! Hopefully Tango is continuing to get better.

This morning I did a heavy weight workout and some core work. I got better sleep last night but still felt like I was dragging through my workout so not sure if that was just residual tiredness or what.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great job on LLA! I hope it cools down some for you.

Julie The mom did say her allergies are not too bad. She came over with them before we left and was in the room with all of the kittens for 30-45 minutes and showed no signs of problems while she was here. Great job on your heavy weight and core work. I’m glad you got better sleep but it does sometimes take a few days to make up for that lost steep time.

This morning was Chiseled upper body and Icy core 2. It’s a pretty quick and easy one which was good for getting back into things. This morning I have a mammogram and then a dentist appointment! Nothing like getting all the nasty stuff over with at once! Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core workout with not a good sleep. I hope your sleep gets better for you.

Pam Good work on ICE Chiseled Upper Body and Icy Core 2. Wow you sure do have a fun day planned, but it is nice to get it done and over with.

This morning was Cardio Supersets. Tango is getting better but he was very constipated this morning. He was a very grumpy boy until he could pass it. Then I went out to my mom's to take her out. She wanted to go to the mall so on our way there were were passed by a police car with lights and siren. I didn't think much of it until we got to the mall where there were other police cars and fire trucks. They had closed the mall down because some dumb a$$ sprayed some pepper spray in the mall. They had a drone out looking for the person too. So instead of going shopping we went to the casino instead. It would have been nice to win enough to pay for Tango's vet bills this past weekend but nope we both came out with nothing.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on CUB plus icy core 2! Hope your appointments went well. Neither are fun but I think I would rather have two dental appointments and no mammogram.

Cheryl Great job on CSS! I am glad Tango was able to get some relief. Oh wow, what a thing to happen. I hope they found the guy and he gets some fine or penalty.

This morning I did some mobility and yoga work. I am taking tomorrow off work and looking forward to sleeping in. I am also debating whether to go to Costco this weekend. I guess I better decide so I can start working up the energy to go.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great job on CSS! I’m glad that Tango is getting better and that he was able to relieve his pain. What a crazy experience at the mall. I hope that they caught the person and that they get an appropriate punishment! Too bad you didn’t win enough to pay the vet bills, they can really add up fast.

Julie Great job on your mobility and yoga work. I hope you are able to sleep in tomorrow. You just reminded me that I need to go to Costco too. I’m definitely not looking forward to that.

This morning was X42 which was the Hi/Lo and Fat Burning Circuit segments. Before that I had to drop the kittens at the vet for their spay/neuters and then I had a hair appointment, so it was a busy morning. Hope you have a great day!

Julie Good job on your mobility and yoga work. I hope you get a good sleep in tomorrow. We have to go to Costco too, I hope it isn't too busy for you there.

Pam Great work on X42. You did have a busy morning. I hope you can relax this afternoon.

This morning was RWH LIHI Chest, Shoulders and Triceps. That is a hard one especially with all of the push ups. Then I got all the housework done before it got too hot out.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on LIHI CST and alkl of those push ups!

This morning I doubled up Cardio Slam and Total Body trisets lower body split since they are both pretty short. My BIL and SIL are coming for the weekend and then we are going to the beach with them and DHs other sister and her husband Monday-Wednesday, so I probably won’t be getting any workouts in for the next several days. Have a great weekend!

Pam Great job on Cardio Slam and Total Body Trisets. Enjoy your time with your company.

Friday I did RWH Back, Shoulders and Biceps. That night we went with our friend to Ribfest which was at the park that is by us. It was a lot of fun with food and music. Saturday morning I went dragon boating. I am going to help this team out in a regatta that is coming up August 20th. So we have a few weeks to practice before it. Then in the afternoon I went for a walk. This morning I took as my day off but I did go to the farmers market to pick up a few things.

Pam Great job on X42 and your doubled up CS plus TBT LB! Hope you have a fabulous time with your family and at the beach.

Cheryl Great job on RWH LIHI CST! Cathe loves her pushups. Great job on RWH LIHI BSB! That is great that you found a team you can help out and get some dragon boating in.

Friday I did a heavy weight workout and some core work. The plan was to do a bunch of cleaning and laundry Friday so I could go to Costco on Saturday but the washing machine decided it was done working after 15 years. So DH and I went to a local appliance store that does next day delivery of what they have in stock. We were able to find a set. I had a front loader but had to replace with a top loader as they seem to be making the front loaders deeper and with bigger doors now and it won't fit in our space. Since I am short, I was in the store practicing reaching the bottom of all the top loaders till I found one I could reach the bottom on. Saturday I did a hike in Romania and some yoga and then got my cleaning done before the washer and dryer was delivered. Sunday was my lazy day and this morning I did a heavy weight and core workout.

Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core workout and your hike in Romania and yoga. Well your washer lasted a long time. We have a top loader and I have to stand on the tips of my toes to reach to the bottom of it. That is nice that you got it the next day and didn't have to wait weeks to get a new one.

Today I took Zoey out for a long walk. She didn't do her business before our friend had to go to work so I took her out for him. I was really tired today so I didn't do much else today.

Cheryl Sounds like you needed a relaxing day. Hopefully Zoey did her business for you on that long walk. I remember growing up having to head dive into the washer to reach the bottom so I am glad I don't have to do that with this one.

This morning I did a bike ride in Bermuda (wish I was really there) and some mobility and yoga.

Julie Great work on your bike ride in Bermuda (I wish I was there too) and your mobility and yoga work. Yes Zoey did her business when I took her out for the long walk.

This morning I did XTrain Legs. Then I went grocery shopping. In the afternoon I met up with a friend for tea and when I got home I spent a lot of time outside chatting with the neighbours.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on XTrain Legs! Hopefully spending time outside means you are getting some nice weather.

This morning I did a heavy weight and core workout! My car is in the shop for an oil change so I had to drive DH's suburban today to work. It is so big compared to my car, I felt like I was driving a tank!

Have a great day!
