Cheryl It’s definitely a good day at the casino if you come out ahead! Congratulations! Great job on doing what you could with SS and quitting when your body told you you needed to. I hoper you are able to get some better sleep. Sleep problems are the worst!

This morning was LIHI legs. I did a premix that does 4 strength exercises and then 4 blasts and repeats that 3 times. It made it go by really quickly. Then I did the abs from Muscle endurance, We’re doing a neighborhood get together this afternoon and I’m hoping it clears up so we can be outside. We got some big storms last night and it is still rainy so far this morning. Have a great day!

Happy Sunday! Yesterday was P30 HI Hiit and upper body. Then I had a wish delivery for a kid who is going to Florida. It was fun because it was a surprise for him. Then I was pretty much just lazy. Today is my rest day. I have some running around to do and was hoping for some pool time but it is looking pretty dreary outside at the moment. Have a great day!

Pam Great job on getting AT in after dropping Tate off at the vet! How fun to go to a show with 3 classics but what a bummer about missing Loverboy and the lightning. Great job on BM step and power circuits and LIHI Legs plus ME abs! That premix sounds better than the regular version. Great job on P30 Hi HiiT & UB! Hopefully you will still have plenty of time for some pool time left this year.

Cheryl Great job on SS UB! Sounds like you had a great time with your mom. Great job on doing what you could with SS! I hope you are getting better sleep.

Friday I did a heavy weight and core workout and then did some cleaning before going to my parents. I couldn't get my mom outside as she had some things she wanted me to help her get done inside. Saturday was a hike in Chile and Pilates and then we had to take Ruby to the vet to get her blood drawn for another liver enzymes test. Hopefully the results come back good sometime this week.

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core workout and cleaning, That is too bad that you weren’t able to get our mom outside, but hopefully you guys got everything done that she wanted to. Great job on your hike in Chile and Pilates too. I hope that you get some good new about Ruby’s liver enzymes .

This morning was Strong abd Sweaty Bootcamp extreme premix 2. It repeats 3 of the rounds to make it an hour long. It’s a rainy day today so I got in my Costco run and now am getting some things ready for dinner because we are having some friends over. The 3 kittens I was watching went home yesterday so it’s pretty quiet around here with only 3 fosters in the house. Things have been going well with Eloise’s trial so I’m hopeful that she will be getting adopted and the people who have Chuckie and Bojangles are having a hard time deciding between them. Who knows, maybe they will keep them both! :rolleyes: :). Have a great day!

Pam Good job on LIHI Legs and the abs from ME and P30 Hi Hiit and Upper Body. I hope you could get outside for your neighborhood get together.

Julie Great work on your heavy weight and core workout, your hike in Chile and Pilates. Too bad that you couldn't get your mom outside but hopefully you got everything done that she wanted inside. I hope everything goes well with Ruby's blood test.

Pam Great work on S&S Bootcamp Extreme. Enjoy your dinner with your friends. That is great that Eloise's trial in going well and who knows maybe they will adopt both Chuckie and Bojangles.

So Friday I took as a day off but I did get all of the housework done as it was a bit cooler out. Saturday I went dragon boating in the morning for our last practice before our regatta this coming Saturday. In the evening we had a neighborhood get together. We hadn't done that in many years. Sunday was a pretty lazy day but I did go for a couple of walks. Today I was tired so I didn't workout this morning but I am going dragon boating tonight. Our coach said that he has recovered from his heart attack and is ready to get back out on the water. We will see how it goes.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on S&S BC extreme premix 2! So weird that an extreme premix is only an hour long. My mom did say she felt productive getting so much done so there is that. Fingers crossed for the kitties!

Cheryl Doing housework is a necessary evil but feels good to get it done. Sounds like you had a fun weekend with dragon boating and a neighborhood get together. Hope your coach does well with getting back out on the water.

Yesterday I got a call from the vet and Ruby's liver enzymes are still improving but they want her on the liver supplement Denamarin again for 3 more months. They did say out of 3 enzymes, 2 are back to normal it is just one more that has to lower. This morning I did a bike ride in Bermuda and some mobility work, yoga, and Pilates.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Yes, we were able to be outside for our neighborhood get together. The sun came out just in time! Our neighborhood get together was our first in quite awhile too. We used to do them about once a month and we may start that back up again. Wow, I hope things go well with your coach getting back to dragon boating. It sounds like it was quicker than you were expecting.

Julie That is great news about Ruby. Hopefully the 3 months of the medication will do the trick for the last level. Great job on your bike ride, mobility work, yoga, and pilates!!

This morning was Gym Style legs. I hadn’t done that one in awhile and forgot how long it is! Then I had a hair appointment and then went to pick up a kitten from another foster that I am taking to the bet tomorrow. She has a broken leg that looks really bad on the x-ray, but you’d never know it by the way she was running around their house! Eloise is getting officially adopted and it’s sounding pretty likely that both Chuckie and Bojangles are going to be adopted. :) We’re going to Michigan next week, but they already have some kittens lined up for me to take when I get back.:rolleyes: Have a great day!

Julie That is great that Ruby's liver enzymes are better and hopefully the next 3 months of meds will improve the third one. Good job on your bike ride in Bermuda and your mobility work, yoga and Pilates.

Pam Great work on GS Legs. I hope her leg heals well though it sounds like it isn't bothering her too badly. That is great about Eloise, Chuckie and Bojangles.

Last nights dragon boating went well though it was just a light paddle since most of the people haven't been out on the water for a couple of months. This morning was Total Body Trisets Lower. Then I got the grocery shopping done and some meal prepping.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on GS Legs! That one is long and that last standing lunge sequence is killer. Oh poor kitty with the broken leg. Hopefully it will heal fast. That is great news about Eloise and the boys. Rescue work is unfortunately never done it seems.

Cheryl Hopefully the dragon boat team will be able to get out more often. Great job on TBT LB!

This morning I did a heavy weight and core workout! My body is feeling drained and I think I need a deload week from the heavy weights. I will finish out this week and then maybe pick some Cathe fun ones for next week.

Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core workout. Cathe has a lot of fun ones for your deload week.

This morning I did Total Body Trisets Upper. I was suppose to go out to my mom's today but she called to say that everyone around her either has covid or have been in contact with someone who has it. So we decided that it was best to skip this week just to be safe. I have a regatta this weekend so I really don't want to get it. Willow has been acting really weird since Sunday. She has basically lived in the kitchen and won't leave and she has been concentrating on one corner of our kitchen. So today I decided to pull out the stove and fridge to check if I could see anything and to clean behind them. I also pulled out drawers and cleaned out the lower cupboards. I didn't see anything until this afternoon when I heard some scratching under our cupboards. Ick we think a mouse has gotten in somehow and that was why Willow was so interested. So this afternoon we went out to buy some mouse traps and we will see what happens. I was suppose to go dragon boating tonight but I wanted to get food moved and get the traps set up so I didn't go.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on TBT UB! Oh no, I hope your mom stays safe and doesn't get it. A mouse in the house is no fun! We had one in our ceiling. There isn't an attic and it chewed through the ceiling to get down into our pantry. Hope you can catch the guy. Or maybe Willow will!

I did some mobility, yoga, and Pilates this morning. I am taking tomorrow off work and I have so much I want to get done. I need to go to Costco after putting it off for a month and I need to pick pears from my tree. It is supposed to rain so that will be fun.

Have a great weekend!

Cheryl Great job on TBTL, dragon boating, and meal prepping.

Julie Great job on your heavy weight and core workout. It sounds like a deload week is a good idea.

Cheryl Great job on TBTU. I hope that your mom stays well and doesn’t get Covid. We had a mouse under our stove a couple of weeks ago and the cats would spend the day sitting in front of the stove staring. I put out a trap but we never caught it, but it does seem to be gone for now. I hope you get yours!

Julie Great jo bon mobility, yoga, and pilates. I totally understand about putting off those Costco trips. I hope you are able to get in and out without any problems!

Yesterday DH and I went for a bike ride after I dropped Renee at the vet. It seems like a silly name for a cat to me, but I guess she is stuck with it for now ;). The Vet took another X-Ray because the last one was done 2 months ago and the bone has healed! She said it isn’t perfect, but she sees no reason to do anything about it. A couple came to meet Mickey and Tate last night and will be taking Tate on a trial. They were tempted to take both of them and I was really hoping they would, but they already have another cat and a 6 month old baby so they decided 2 more would be too much right now. Hopefully he will get along with their cat. I’m not too worried about him because he likes everybody and everything, but their cat has never been around other cats. Have a great day!

Julie Good job on mobility, yoga and Pilates. I hope you get everything done that you need to and can enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Pam Great work on your bike ride. That is great that Renee's leg has healed. I hope that Tate's trial works out.

It has been so hot here so I didn't workout this morning. So Willow did catch our little mouse late last night. DH found her in my workout room playing with it though it was already dead. She is still stalking out the kitchen though. This afternoon I went to the SPCA for my shift. I was happy for some airconditioning.

Have a great day.

Friday I didn't workout either since it has been so hard to sleep. I did manage to get some housework done though. Saturday I had a dragon boat regatta. I was really happy that it was cooler than the previous days. Our team did well and we got a silver medal in the Women's C division. It was a very tight race and it was less than a 1 second difference between 1st and 3rd place. Taking another lazy day today. I am very ready for the heat to go away.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on your bike ride! I work with a Renee so that would be a weird name for a pet for me. Fingers crossed the trial goes well.

Cheryl Oh wow, she caught the mouse! That is too funny that she is still stalking the kitchen looking for more. Yea! A silver medal is awesome! Hopefully it will cool off for you soon.

Friday I did a heavy weight and core workout and then DH had to go for a COVID test prior to a colonoscopy he was supposed to have today. Turns out he tested positive and now can't get the procedure done. Good thing he found out before he took the prep. After that I went to Costco. Saturday I did a hike in Chile and some Pilates and mobility work and picked some pears before the rain came. Sunday was my lazy day. This morning I did ICE MTB and worked on my front splits some! I can't believe how hard MTB felt.

Have a great day!

Julie Great work on your heavy weight and core workout, your hike in Chile and Pilates and mobility work and ICE MTB. It is funny that some workouts feel hard when you think they should be easier. You wouldn't want to do the prep and then find out that you can't have the colonoscopy done and then have to go through the prep again.

Today I did Athletic Training. I wasn't sure if I would workout or not because I didn't sleep well again and I was really tired. But I pushed through and got it done. Tonight I went dragon boating. It was a nice night on the water and there was a breeze blowing so it didn't feel too hot.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on AT! That can be a tough one with not sleeping well. Glad you had a nice night dragon boating.

This morning I did a bike ride in Alaska through a Christmas light display and the trainer was in a Santa suit. Some people celebrate Christmas in July but I guess I am a little behind in doing it in August. After that I went to Aruba to do some Pilates.

Have a great day!

Julie Good job on your bike ride in Alaska, I bet it was nice going through the light display even though it is August. Good job on your Pilates in Aruba too.

This morning I did P30 Lower Body. Then I went and got groceries. Tonight I went out for a bit of a walk. It was a bit cooler today but it is suppose to be really hot tomorrow.

Cheryl Great job on P30 LB! Oh no I hope it doesn't get too hot for you.

This morning I did LITE BW & Bands and added on mobility work to work on my backbends.

Have a great day!

This morning I did some lower body mobility work and Pilates! Tomorrow I have off work and really want to sleep in but I think I am going to have to get up early to get my workout in before we have to leave to take Cam to a cardiology vet 2 hours away. Our vet detected a murmur and suggested we get it checked out. Hopefully I can find some time to get some housework done and some relaxing this weekend.

Have a great weekend!
