Strength in Numbers

Cheryl Great job on PUB. Your mom must be feeling better if she was up to going to the casino. Too bad you didn’t win anything!

Julie Great job on your heavy upper body and hip flexor work. I hope you are able to get some good sleep this weekend!

This morning was Perfect pump lower and upper. That one always goes by so fast for me. I went to the garden center yesterday and got some plants so I will be doing some planting today. It was 86 degrees yesterday afternoon, but I think it’s only supposed to be in the 50’s on Saturday. I wish mother nature would stop teasing us! Have a great day!

Julie Good work on your heavy upper body workout and some hip flexor work. Enjoy your time off and I hope a little rest will help your scratchy throat.

Pam Great job on PP Lower and Upper. You are getting some nice weather, it isn't anywhere near that warm here yet.

This morning I did ICE LIS 1 and Icy Core 2. Then I got the housework done and then in the afternoon I went to the SCPA. We got 6 cats and 1 guinea pig. As soon as I got home my phone went crazy. I was hacked and someone sent out a message to everyone I know :mad:. I was not impressed but I think I got it fixed.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on LIS 1 and Icy Core And getting the housework done! That’s terrible about getting hacked and hopefully it is fixed now. It seems like hacks and scams are just becoming so common anymore!

This morning I did Circuit Max. I hadn’t done that one in a long time and it was my favorite for awhile, so it was a nice change of pace. I didn’t end up getting everything planted yesterday as I had planned. I ended up going to the Farmers market and got some more plants and some hanging baskets. I also got some strawberries as strawberry season has started Have a great day!

Happy Saturday! This morning was Step Moves and the abs from Low Impact Circuit. I took in a mom cat and her three little kittens this morning. The poor mom, this is her fourth litter and she looks like she isn’t much more than a year old Luckily it will be her last litter! Have a great day.

Pam Great job on Circuit Max, that one was a favorite of mine too. I love strawberries when they are in season. Great job too on Step Moves and the abs from LIC. 4 litters in less than a year is a lot. I am happy to hear that this will be her last litter.

So Friday I was so tired I didn't workout. I did manage to do some laundry though. Saturday I didn't workout either but the SPCA had an open house so I was there early to help set up and stayed until the afternoon. Sunday we went over to my brother's for a brunch. It was good though our mom wasn't feeling up to joining us. It has been a very wet and windy weekend. I hope the weather improves this week.

Pam Great job on PP LB & UB, CM, and SM + LIC abs! Bummer you didn't get all the planting done but it is just the start of the season so you have time. Fresh home grown strawberries sound delicious. Poor momma kitty. I am glad this will be her last litter.

Cheryl Great job on ICE LIS 1 plus Icy Core 2! ARGH! How frustrating to get hacked. I don't understand why people do that. Hope the open house generated a lot of good things for the SPCA. I'm sorry your mom couldn't join you for brunch. Hopefully she is continuing to get a little better.

Friday I did a heavy lower body workout and a hike in the Scottish Highlands! Then DH and I went to Costco and I am glad I have that done for another month or so. Saturday I did lower body mobility work and some forearm/headstand work and then DH and I spent the day outside because it was so nice in the upper 60s. Sunday we took the dogs for a walk and then went for a little longer by ourselves. This morning I did a heavy lower body workout. We are supposed to be in the 70s this whole week! I am so excited for better weather!

Have a great day!
Cheryl I hope that the SPCA open house was a success. It sounds like you had a long day. Sorry to hear that your mom didn’t feel like coming to Easter Brunch, I hope she is still getting better.

Julie Great job on your lower body workout and hike. I know you are happy to have that Costco run behind you! Great job on your lower body mobility and forearm and headstand work. It sounds like you had a beautiful weekend. Ours was mostly wet and cold, but it did get nice Sunday afternoon.

Yesterday was my rest day so no workout but I cleaned up the deck and all of the furniture and the screened porch.. I think the pollen is finished so I shouldn’t have to do it again. This morning I did Cardio Fusion and the abs from Body Max 2. I tripped on my step and fell early on, but luckily didn’t hurt myself so was able to finish. My momma cat and her kittens are settling in nicely. She is so sweet and such a good mom. The kittens are so small I can’t really tell what sex they are yet so will have to hold off on figuring out names for awhile. I also haven’t figured out how to tell them apart yet . They told me that the mom’s name is Julie, but I will probably change that. It’s a nice name for a person , but seems like a weird name for a cat! Have a great day!

Pam Great job on CF plus BM2 abs! Oh how scary when you trip like that. I have done that and it sure does wake you up and get your heart racing faster. I agree that Julie is not really an animal name. I had a friend when I was in grade school that had a dog named Julie and I was like that is odd!

This morning I did a heavy upper body workout and some hip flexor strengthening! I have been getting awful sleep. I technically get enough sleep time but it is always restless. I'm almost at my wits end.

Have a great day!
Julie Great job on your heavy upper body work and hip flexor strengthening! That is terrible about your sleep, I wish I had some good advice I could give, but I don’t! Hopefully it gets better soon!

Yesterday was Muscle Endurance. I think I would like that one a lot better if it didn’t have so many leg presses! I just seems like overkill. Then I had to take Kit Kat to the vet. I don’t think I mentioned that she was returned after 6 months! We all knew that was probably what was going to happen because this woman was so crazy. She returned her because she didn’t sit on the couch with her. This morning was Rockout Knockout. I feel like I have been doing that one a lot lately. Have a great day!

Julie Great job on your heavy lower body workouts and hike in the Scottish Highlands. , your lower body mobility work and forearm/headstand work, and your walk. It is always nice to get the Costco run over and done with. I am lucky that I can do it midweek but it is still busy.

Pam It is nice to get all the cleaning done outside so you can enjoy it. Good work on Cardio fusion and the abs from BM2. That is good that you didn't hurt yourself when you tripped, it is easy to do. Julie is a weird name for a cat, I am sure you will come up with something better.

Julie Good work on your heavy upper body workout and hip flexor strengthening. I don't have a lot of advise either with the sleep. I do take magnesium before bed and it does seem to help with the restlessness.

Pam Good job on Muscle Endurance and Rockout Knockout. That is a lame reason to return a cat for. I know you will find another better adopter for her.

Well I have had a week. Monday I was really tired so I didn't workout in the morning but I did go dragon boating in the afternoon. Tuesday I was taking my mom to the hospital in the afternoon for a scope of her stomach. She called me just before I was going to workout and told me that the hospital had a cancellation and could get her in earlier. So I had to get ready to go instead of working out. I dropped her off and then went to the mall because it was going to take several hours. I got a call from the doctor who told me they had to abort the procedure because all of a sudden she couldn't breathe and her heart rate spiked. So they took her to emergency to have her looked at. She did not look well at all when I got there and she was hooked up to all sorts of machines. They took an ex-ray and an ultrasound but nothing was conclusive. They did give her some nitroglycerin and that did help. She stabilized enough that they said she could go home and didn't have to stay in the hospital. So by the time I got her home and I drove home I was exhausted. This morning I had to get some grocery shopping done since this is the only time that I had. I had to go out to my mom's again today because she already had an appointment with her heart doctor. They now have her on water pills to help with the fluid that is on her lungs and her swollen ankles. She also has a portable machine hooked up to her as well to monitor her heart. I need to go back out there Friday to return it to the doctor's office. Maybe I will be able to get a workout in tomorrow morning before I get called into the SPCA to help out.

Have a great day.

Pam Great job on ME! Yes that is leg press overload. That is the craziest reason to return a pet. I don't understand people some times. Great job on RK!

Cheryl Oh, you have had quite the week. I am so sorry your mom is having so many health problems. I hope they can figure out what is going on and get her some relief. Hopefully you and her are also staying in good spirits or at least as good as you can with everything going on. I'll be keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers.

I was so tired yesterday, I slept in and didn't work out and then had a busy day at work. This morning I feel like I finally slept better (a little anyway). I did a heavy upper body workout and some more hip flexor work. We have had beautiful weather 80s but are supposed to get a storm this weekend that will cool us off back into the 50s.

Have a great weekend!
Cheryl Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry about everything that is going on with your mom. It was good that she was at the hospital already though when her heart rate spiked and she couldn’t breath. I hope that they are able to get things under control for her and figure out what is going on. I know it must be so stressful for you both.

Julie It sounds like sleeping in was just what you were needing, it’s good that you finally got a bit better sleep. Great job on your heavy upper body workout and hip flexor work. I’m am loving the beautiful weather right now. We are going to an outdoor music festival in Charleston this weekend and it’s looking like the weather will be perfect .

This morning I did Strong Body Stacked Sets lower and upper and bonus abs 2. It sounds like a lot, but they are short so it was just a little over an hour total. She uses really light weights in that one, especially in the lower body portion, so I went heavier on just about everything. My shoulders are wimpy though so I couldn’t go heavier on those. Have a great day!

Julie Sounds like sleeping in was the best thing to do. Glad that you slept better last night and in doing your upper body workout and your hip flexor work. It hasn't been anywhere near the 80s here yet.

Pam Good job on SBSS Lower and Upper and bonus abs 2.

This morning I did FS Low Impact Cardio and Metabolic Conditioning. It hard this morning but I pushed through. Then I went to the SPCA to help with our transfer. We got 8 6 week old kittens who lost their mother so they went into foster until they are old enough to be adopted out. We also got 1 other kitten and 3 cats.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Great job on FS LIC and MB! Poor mama kitty .

This morning was Athletic Conditioning, Now we are headed to Charleston for the weekend. We are in the middle of a thunderstorm so we’re hoping it doesn’t rain the whole way! Have a great day.

Pam Great job on SBSS LB + UB + bonus abs 2! It always feels so great going heavier than Cathe! Great job on AC! Hope you had a great time in Charleston.

Cheryl Great job on FS LIC + MC! Oh that is so sad the kittens lost their mother. Hopefully they will all be adopted out as soon as they are ready.

Friday I did a heavy lower body workout and a hike in Scottish Highlands! After that was some meal prepping and then I went to my mom's to groom her dog. Saturday was lower body mobility and forearm stand work and then DH and I did some cleaning and we spread grass seed in our backyard as it has become very spotty and bald in sections. I wish we would have looked farther into the weather though because this morning there was snow on the ground. Hopefully the seed was able to get into the ground Sunday before the snow covered it. This morning I did a heavy lower body workout and a bike ride in Costa Rica.

Have a great day!
Pam Good work on Athletic Conditioning. I hope you enjoyed your weekend and it didn't rain.

Julie Great job on your heavy lower body workout and hike in the Scottish Highlands, your lower body forearm stand work, your heavy lower body workout and bike ride in Costa Rica. Doesn't Mother Nature know that it is now spring and it isn't suppose to snow anymore.

Friday Tango had an early morning vet appointment so I didn't get a workout in. I did get the laundry done and then in the afternoon I had a hair appointment. Saturday I filled in a seat for another dragon boat team and then I got the housework done. Sunday I did Yoga Relax and then I went to the farmers market. It was so rainy out so it was a good day to stay inside. This morning I met a friend for a walk this morning and I just came back from dragon boat practice. The rain held off all day until we showed up for practice.

Have a great day.

Cheryl Hope Tango's appointment went well at the vet. Great job on YR! What a bummer the rain hit when you started to practice. There is a saying in my state that we have Winter, Fool's Spring, Second Winter, Spring of Deception, Third Winter, and finally Actual Spring. So I think yesterday was our Second Winter and today is Spring of Deception. Should be entering our 3rd and final Winter soon.

This morning I did a heavy upper body workout and hip flexor strengthening. Today is a busy day full of meetings. Hopefully I will survive!

Have a great day!
Julie Great job on your heavy lower body workout and hike, lower body mobility And forearm stand work. Hopefully the snow didn’t impact your planting. Maybe if it just melts quickly it will be good because it will be like it is getting watered. Great job on your heavy lower body workout and bike ride too!

Cheryl Great job on YR and your walk. What a bummer that the rain started right when you showed up for practice! I hope you didn’t get too wet!

Julie Great job on your heavy upper body and hip flexor work! I hope your day of meetings isn’t too bad!

The trip to Charleston was great. The weather was perfect, mostly in the mid-80’s. The only rain we got was early Sunday morning before we left our hotel. The music festival was a lot of fun and we had a lot of good food and just enjoyed walking around Charleston. This morning was CCC. I’m actually finding it pretty enjoyable now that I’ve caved to the fact that I can do modifications. I did a few of the drop squat and rolls on each round, but then did finished with the modification. Have a great day!

Julie Tango was pretty grumpy at the vet and was very happy to get home. Overall it went pretty well. I like the saying your state has. So you are getting close to actual spring. Good job on your heavy upper body workout and hip flexor strengthening. I hope you survived your full day of meetings.

Pam I got a bit wet but it wasn't too bad. That is great that your trip was great and you didn't get much rain. Great work on CCC, I think modifications do help with that one.

This morning I did TBGS. Then I got the grocery shopping done. In the afternoon I met up with a friend for tea. It was nice to get together.

Have a great day.

Pam So glad you had great weather and a great trip. Great job on CCC! Modifications are great. The snow did melt pretty quickly and I know I probably did the grass seed early but I was so excited we had great weather.

Cheryl Great job on TBGS! That sounds so nice to get tea with a friend.

This morning I did a Yoga Burn Hatha yoga workout and a bike ride in Costa Rica! I have been having so much troubles getting up on Wednesdays to work out I decided to switch things up and go back to do a Yoga sequence. It was a nice one today so hopefully that will help with getting out of bed next Wednesday too.

Have a great day!
