Hi fit babes! I really do think about you all when I'm not here. I'm glad you are all well and safe! I am well and safe too.
Jody, thank you for thinking I would do fine with STS! I did it twice when I first got it but have to admit that I lost that program on E-bay after that. I kind of struggled with it rather than embraced it. I have a hard time sticking with a 90 day workout program. Same thing has happened to me with Beachbody programs that are longer than 2 months. I too do better with familiar workouts and will also plan for them, even the timesaving part that is needed, we are not pre-cheating! I'm glad you like Cathe Live! I downloaded the free leg day she has and I've done another Live class with a friend too. I got a couple of Tracie Long workouts recently and I think I'm just going to pop them in and do them, no previewing. Makes life more exciting these days! I'm sorry On Demand is not working for you, I'm afraid I don't know how to fix it. I haven't seen additional discounts for Cathe Live during the holidays but I haven't looked specifically for it either. Congrats on getting the MS suite with no tech issues!! I think taking the 2 classes with your schedule is really admirable Jody! I don't think it belongs in the 2020 poop pile! I loled when you said you are doing the classes with half-assed commitment. Good for you! I'm the type that would stress myself out with them.
Hi Mary! I forgot to mention last time that I have done parts of P90X and I recall it's a good program except the guy never stops talking! It wore on me a bit. Thank you for asking about my dad! He had a very minor stroke last month that he fully recovered from thankfully! He stayed in the hospital overnight and they ran every possible test and found nothing. So I enjoy every day he is still here. I see him once a month for lunch and we practice safety. In fact, he called Thanksgiving off this year so I am going to see him the day after for lunch. Wow! You do mow a lot my friend! I bet your neighbors really appreciate that! How is DS doing in Chicago? I have my fingers crossed for DD's new long term sub position! That is an awesome surprise hubby did for you! Are you in Vegas now? I think I need to go there. You can do everything outside there year round! Well, maybe it's a little too hot in the summer. I'm jealous you got the new workouts already! I'm really looking forward to the mobility workout. I'm also hoping to sign up for Cathe's virtual road trip! Good luck on starting STS again, knowing you have all those push ups coming!
Ronne, I ended up stopping 10 Rounds after week 5 (it was 6 weeks total) because the right side of my neck was too painful. It was pure boxing, no kicking at all. So we stood partially sideways with one foot in front of the other for all of the punching moves and I moved my back foot a lot but apparently not enough! (I was also on carpet). I've had whiplash injuries in the past and the amount of sitting I do didn't help either. So I'm back to Cathe and plan to do the Perfect 30/X-Train rotation when I get the new workouts. Congratulations on your weight loss!! Like Lisa, I can only lose weight through diet. Your holiday in Turkey sounds absolutely wonderful! I'm glad it really paid off for you mentally. DH and I were going to take a road trip this month but our number keep going up so we decided not to. Like Jody, travel stresses me out. I guess I better get over that if I want to go to Vegas! I don't know if you read what I wrote to Jody above re STS but I can relate to the motivation issues you have felt with it.
Lisa, I loled when you wondered about my comprehensive posts and saying you were disorganized like Jody!! It's not a secret--I take notes when the posts are longer than a page or I scroll a lot! And you are right--I get 'encouragement" from friends who do the Beach Body workouts. I saw your adorable grandbaby in your FB avatar, I am so happy you are seeing her more! I'm glad you listened to your brother and took a recovery week. Heart palpitations would scare me, I'm happy that did the trick for you. Geez! You are getting hit with bad weather and smoke! We had the smoke a month ago and it seems like you've gotten it twice! My friend in California had the smoke really bad when we did too, and now the power is getting shut off there due to high winds. As much as the rain can be depressing here at times, I'm definitely grateful for it. We had the smoke almost 2 full weeks before we finally got some rain. Now I'm done with the rain, hee hee!
DH and I are still working at home, DH will likely be until next June! I will be until at least March. It's hard to believe I haven't been to the office in 7 months! Some people are going in when there is a business need and I've decided I need to go there just to get more dvds! I've been grateful for the Beach Body workouts but I'm missing others that I left at work. I suppose I could sign up for OnDemand but I have notes all over the dvds for what weights to use, etc. I have also looked into a new craft I can do so I don't go stir crazy and found it--quilting! Not the wonderful kind that Lisa does, but from kits that I can handle without too much frustration! I've been enjoying that. My oldest puppy, Basil, turned 10 Sept. 30th and got pneumonia of all things (I'm sure the smoke wasn't good for him) but he's all better now. He does have a bad heart murmur now which is common for his breed. We'll be seeing a cardiologist in November. They can give him medication to slow down any heart disease he may have. It's not cheap of course but I would feel so bad if there is something we can do for him and I didn't explore it.
Take care sweet fit babes! I hope to get back here soon. Tracy
