Julie Great job on your mobility work. It is always great when you don't want to workout but end up having a great workout. Hopefully it doesn't get too cold this weekend.

This morning I ended up looking after Zoey so I didn't get a workout in. I am waiting to get to the SPCA which I thought was going to be this morning but instead it is going to be later this afternoon. Tonight I am going with some friends to see Menopause the Musical. Should be fun.

Cheryl Great job on LIHI and abs And Disc 5! I bet your mom was so happy to get out again. Glad you are both feeling better!

Julie Great job on mobility work. That is awesome that you can see a difference. it’s wonderful to have a great workout like that when you weren’t feeling motivated to do it.

Cheryl I hope you enjoy the Musical. I saw it a few years ago in Vegas and it was really funny.

This morning I did Cardio Kicks. I had started doing a Mindy workout, but the disc froze 4 times in the first 30 seconds or so so I bagged it. I decided it was telling me I was supposed to do Cardio kicks. Then I took Layla in for her spay appointment. She was quite vocal about not wanting to go . Have a great day!

Pam Great job on Cardio Kicks. Yep I think the Mindy DVD was trying to tell you something. I hope everything went well with Layla's spay appointment.

Menopause the Musical was really funny. I could definitely relate to it. This morning I did Disc 6 Legs, then I got all the housework done. Then I went outside and cleaned up leaves.

Have a great weekend.

Cheryl Great job on D6! Glad you enjoyed menopause the musical. Our leaves aren’t coming down yet, I am not looking forward to that!

Yesterday it was a beautiful day so I went for a bike ride in the morning and hung out by the pool in the afternoon. This morning was Muscle Endurance ad then I had a Wish delivery for a kid who is going to Disney. It was really fun becuase it was a surprise for him. Have a great day!

Cheryl Oh my goodness! That sounds like a great play just based on the title. Great job on D6 and all your housework!

Pam Great job on CK! What a bummer about the other disc freezing but I think you made the right choice in picking CK. Great job on your bike ride and ME! Glad you are still getting some pool time weather.

Friday I did a heavy lower body workout and core and then did some cleaning, took DH's car to the mechanic to check out a code (turned out to be nothing), and then went to my parents to visit them a little. Saturday was an upper body weight workout, a hike in Chile, and some stretching. After that I did a little more cleaning but then had a lazy day since it was so cold outside. Sunday was another lazy day and this morning I did a heavy lower body weight and core workout.

Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy lower body and core workout and cleaning. I’m glad that they code on DHs cr wasn‘t a problem. Great job on your upper body workout, hike, stretching, cleaning, heavy lower body and core workouts!

Yesterday was my rest day so no workout. Someone came over to meet Manny in the morning and she took him for a trial. Then I had a wish delivery for a little girl who is going to Disney in a couple of weeks. They are very excited. This morning I really thought about starting STS, but ended up doing Intensity instead . I just wasn’t feeling all of those push ups in D1! Have a great day!

Pam Great job on your bike ride, Muscle Endurance and being able to hang out by the pool.

Julie Great work on your heavy lower body and core workouts and your upper body weight workout and hike in Chile and stretching. That is great that there wasn't anything wrong with your DH's car.

Pam I hope Manny's trial works out. Good work on Intensity. There are a lot of pushups in meso 1. I am glad that I have gotten through 3 of them with one more to go next week.

Saturday I did Rockout Knockout and then I made veggies to take over to my brother's for out Thanksgiving dinner. There was about 15 of us for dinner and we could sit outside before dinner because it was so nice out. Sunday I did P30 Mobility Basics and then I went dragon boating. In the afternoon I cleaned up more leaves. This morning I did STS disc 7 Chest, Shoulders and Biceps which had a ton more pushups. Then I went outside and cleaned more leaves. I can't keep up with it now.

Have a great day.

Pam Hope everything works out for Manny's trial! Great job on Intensity! Starting STS is so hard because the first workout has 100+ pushups in it which is just dreadful for me.

Cheryl Great job on RK! How great to be able to sit outside before dinner. Hopefully it will stay somewhat nice out for a few more months. Great job on P30 MB and dragon boating and D7 with all those pushups! All that leaves clean up sounds like an additional workout.

This morning I really wanted to stay in bed snuggled with the dogs after DH left for work but I got up and did a heavy upper body weight workout, some yoga, and a bike ride in Alaska! I am done with the Alaska series so no more snow.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Only more more of those horrible push up workouts to go! I know it will be a big relief to finish the 4th one! Great job on RK and D7! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving, it’s great that it was nice enough to sit outside. You are about 3-4 weeks ahead of us with the leaves, I am not looking forward to that at all!

Julie Great job on your heavy upper body workout, yoga, and bike ride! Wouldn’t it be nice if there were no more snow around here the rest of the year!

This morning was XTrain Disc 1 Chest, back, and shoulders And core 1. I really like the format of those XTrain workouts, but I always forget it until I do them again. Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy upper weight workout, yoga and your bike ride in Alaska. Now you need to go somewhere hot for your bike rides.

Pam It will be a relief to finish the last of the pushups. A lot of leaves have fallen but there are still so many more to go. Good work on XTrain Disc 1 Chest, Back and Shoulders and Core 1.

This morning I did 4DS Higher Intensity Step (just the step portion). Then I went to get my hair cut finally. It felt good to get it looking like something again. Then I went and got groceries then came home and had lunch and then I went to meet up with a friend for tea.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on XT D1 plus core 1! It's been a while since I have done that one but I remember liking the format as an alternative to straight sets.

Cheryl Great job on 4DS HIS Step! That sounds like a great day with a nice mix of self care, errands, and meeting up with a friend.

This morning I did a lower body weight workout and some core. It was so dark driving into work today. It made me sleepy and now I want to take a nap but that is frowned on in the office.

Have a great day!

Cheryl Great job on HIS. It‘s nice that you were finally able to get your hair cut. Meeting for tea sounds so fancy!

Julie Great job on your lower body and core workout. I always thought they should have nap rooms at work. People can’t be very productive when they are exhausted and sometimes a 15 minute nap can work wonders!

This morning was Step Works, and oldie but goody! The only thing I don’t really like about it is the cooldown is so long. Have a great day!

Julie Good job on your lower body weight workout and core. I agree that they should have nap rooms at work. Sometimes you just need 15 minutes to feel better.

Pam Great work on Step Works. I haven't done that one in a long time but I do remember the long cooldown.

This morning it was disc 8 Back and Triceps. It felt really hard this morning for some reason. Then I went out to my mom's. She had a doctor's appointment and then we went to the casino. I had no luck but my mom won $80.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on Step Works! I always told people that around 1 after everyone has had lunch, they should dim the lights and play a lullaby so we could nap for a few minutes.

Cheryl Great job on D8! Some mornings things are just harder. That's a good winnings for your mom.

This morning I did my mobility work and worked on front splits and backbends! I am so close to the floor on front splits. At least today I was. Some weeks I feel like I am more flexible than other weeks.

We are supposed to have another chilly weekend and I have a virtual baby shower to attend for my niece on Saturday.

Have a great weekend!

Cheryl Great job on D8! I hate those days that feel harder than they should. Wow an $80 win, that is great! I bet she was happy.

Julie Great job on your mobility work. I can’t imagine being anywhere near the floor for splits, that is just awesome!

This morning was Xtrain Bis and Tris and core 2. It’s going to rain all day so it will be an inside day. I have some things that need to get done, but I need to see about taking Layla back to the vet because she has a bulge where she had her surgery incision and it feels hard. Have a great day!

Pam Good work on XTrain Bis and Tris and core 2. I hope everything is OK with Layla.

So yesterday I did ICE Low Impact Sweat 1 + Blizzard Blast + Core 2. Then I went to the SPCA. Last night I went to a women's safety session put on by our local police. It was really good with showing you punching, elbow smashes and kicking. We got to put it all in practice too with doing it using bags. My body is a bit sore today though with all the punching and kicking but I am glad that I signed up for it. This morning I did STS disc 9 Legs, Then I got some housework done and then I went to the SPCA to help out again.

Have a great weekend.

Cheryl Great job on ICE LIS, BB ad core. The safety session that you went to sounds like it was really good. Those are great skills to have. Great job on STS D9 too! I called the vet and they had me send a picture and said that since the bulge is hard it is likely just a reaction to the sutures so to just keep an eye on it since she isn‘t in any pain.

Yesterday my DH and I were going to go for a bike ride, but neither one of us felt like it so I died Body Max Step and power circuits instead. Then we recovered our kitchen chairs and did some other work around the house. This morning was Xtrain legs and core from Lean legs and abs. have a great day!

Pam Great job on XT B/T and core 2! Hope Layla is doing good with her stitches. Great job on your BM step and power circuits and XT legs and core plus LLA abs! Is recovering chairs staining or upholstery work?

Cheryl Great job on ICE LIS 1 + BB + Core 2! What a cool experience to go to the Women's safety session. It sounds like it provided a workout too. Great job on D9!

Friday I did a heavey legs and core workout and then it was cleaning and errands. Saturday was an upper body weights, hike in Chile, and some stretching and of course more cleaning. I had a virtual baby shower for my niece in the afternoon that was fun to see her since she moved to Arizona about 3 years ago. Sunday was my lazy day and this morning I did a heavy legs and core workout!

Have a great day!

Pam That is good that the bulge is just a reaction to the stitches. Great job on BM Step and Power Circuits and XTrain Legs and the abs from Lean Legs and Abs. I wish I knew how to recover chairs since our dining room chairs need to be recovered.

Julie Good work on your heavy leg and core workouts your upper body weights and hike in Chile and stretching. That is nice that you could attend your niece's baby shower virtually.

Saturday morning I did a Barre, Yoga and Pilates fusion class. I was pretty stiff and sore and really needed it. Then I cleaned up a lot of leaves. It is a never ending battle right now. Sunday I went to the farmers market first thing in the morning and then I went dragon boating. It has been really smoky out with all of the wildfires that are burning around us. There was even a water bomber that flew over us going to one of the fires when we were dragon boating. This morning I did STS disc 10 and I am so happy to be done with all of those pushups. Then DH had a dentist appointment for a cleaning and then after that we decided to go and get the grocery shopping done.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on your Barre, Yoga, and Pilates fusion class and finishing up the pushup palooza D10! Hopefully the smokiness isn't causing any issues and they can get them under control soon.

This morning I did a heavy upper body weight workout, some yoga, and a bike ride in DC through the beautiful cherry blossom trees. So last night we got our first flurries. Didn't last long and didn't stick but it made me sad. :(

Have a great day!
