    Hello everyone... Wanted to make sure I found the new thread before I left for Nevada

    Swiss... How's your daughters finger? I pray it's an easy fix. I've seen where it didn't heal properly and they've had to re break it. Don't blame yourself. My son had two broken wrists and complained they nurture but kept right on hanging out with ins friends. It wasn't until his friends left that he finally told me how bad his wrists were.

    Anyway, I didn't workout yesterday because it was my mothers birthday and today I did a lot of 9-11 special watching along with getting everything ready for working in Nevada. I just wanted you all to know. I'll be back Tuesday night so wed. I will let you know what exercise I was able to squeeze in.

    Good Morning! Back from a lovely trip to Maine. We decided at the last minute to fly up there instead of drive and am I glad we did! I think we would have found ourselves caught in some bad weather/flooding trying to get around the northeast. Even here in DC we've had alot of flooding (in fact, the beltway was closed near our home on the night we landed, which was crazy bad). We avoided all of that and had a great time (despite a little rain on the last couple of days). Very nice to get away, that's for sure.

    I finished my Insanity/Asylum rotation right before we left, but I decided to do another revised version of it this month. DH and I leave in three weeks for Florida to visit my in-laws, so I wanted a good rotation to fit into this timeframe....and I had great results with the Insanity/Asylum rotation. I will be adding more strength training this time, but that's more a preference than a need as I kept my muscle definition throughout the rotation AND my strength. But I just like strength training, so I want to do more.

    I also weighed myself for the first time in about 13 months right before we left. And the great news is I weighed exactly what I did a year ago (110), which was also my goal weight from two years ago. So I guess maintenance is working well for me.

    Happy to see so many people posting (on the last thread). Thanks, singfree, for opening the new thread! Hope you are all doing well.

    Checking in. I presume this must mean age, not weight lost, right? :)

    Hi all! Spent about 8 hours yesterday building a new raised bed for the iris we went overboard ordering back in the spring. Hauled 11 40lb bags of soil, 2 50lb bags of composted manure, 3 25lb bags of organic compost, 2 40lbs bags of drainage rocks plus spent about an hour breaking up very dry, hard clay soil. We also bought 50 daffodil bulbs to plant. We thought that was too much but now hubs is talking about getting 100 more!

    Still need rain and it is supposed to be triple digits again this week. I can tell that the sunlight is looking more like fall though.

    We even made it to the gym on Saturday before going to buy supplies for the new bed. We go to the trainer tonight.

    Sing, thanks for the new thread. Take care all. TxMs

    Glad that most of us are finding the new thread.

    I got my prize for winning the first weeks challenge at work. It was a gift bag with a sports drink, which has 130 calories.:noway: Later I check further in the bag and found a pack of gum and a towel. I love the towel. It is one of those small ones that you take to the gym.:bigsmile:

    Bump.

    Chris - happy belated birthday, I turned 41 this year as well. I am also in much better shape than I was at 40 (when I turned 40, I had a 6-month-old baby)! Finally decided this year to lose the baby weight.

    Hello everyone :)

    This morning before work, I dropped off my old baseball card collection at a local foster care facility. The collection has been collecting dust for close to 20 years, time to let it go. They were excited to get it :smile: This is part of my drive to make room for a power cage in my room so that I can safely do barbell exercises at home. Looking to get the Powerline PPR200X, or something similar. If I rearrange things a bit, I'll have just enough room to use it. Then I can quit the Gym and not worry about that scene any more :happy: Going to look around locally for something used, but if nothing comes up by the weekend, I'll be ordering a new one.

    One of my friends at work baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies for my birthday :laugh: I had 2 of them, they were good, but I found them very rich and sweet and 2 was more than enough. Goes to show how your tastes change depending on what you are used to. Haven't had a chocolate chip cookie for probably close to a year now.

    Weight Lifting Day: DB Squats, DB Bench Press, DB Glute Bridges

    The weight on those glute bridges is starting to get intense.

    *Becky: grats!!

    *Texssippian: Sounds like a lot of work!

    *tladame: thanks :) and grats!

    *Betsybee: welcome :)

    *navjhaj: yup! 40 y/o or over

    Chris: Way too go with your workouts. I am trying to get motivated to start workouts again. I feel utterly dejected that I have to start right from the beginning again.

    Good evening!

    I'm enjoying (finally) a stretch of good weather around here. It was a wild week last week!

    I did a good upper body workout today followed by a long hike up the mountain. The mountain hike really makes me feel like I've accomplished something for the day. Slowly but surely I'm getting back into decent shape. At least my clothes are indicating it.

    Stiring, I'm glad to hear that your trip to ME was good. Send me a note about it if you get a chance!

    To all: I trust that everyone has found our new "fall" thread ok.

    Have a great day!

    :happy: Good morning all !!

    Chris, I know what you mean about our tastes changing when we eat healthy. I had a friend mention that she eats hotdogs. :noway: I can't imagine eating one of those. That is one thing that I really didn't have trouble giving up. But, she did say that she grills them...now, that just may be tempting.

    I went to my weight class last night. I am feeling so much better now that I am back on an exercise plan. I love the way my body is beginning to look more toned. Tonight is the water aroebic class. (I know I didn't spell that right.:grumble: )

    Everyone, remember to drink lots of water. :drinker: :drinker: :drinker:
