    Hi Ladies, I had another good stomach day today and was able to get an appointment with the GI specialist but not until the end of June.
    Today's workouts were Beginner/Gentle Yoga, Barre Levels 1&2, LiTe Strong Body Stacked Sets: Lower. Today's workouts were really good but by the time I got to the LiTe workout, I was going in slow motion.

    Laurie, sorry you're still dealing with that cold. You are doing the right thing by resting though. Too bad you now have to deal with your DH's cold too! I hope you both feel better soon!

    I was able to find some Deva Curl stylists about 1.5 hours from here. They are very expensive though. The one lady I found charges $84 for a woman's haircut. I am not willing to pay that much!

    Laurel, great workout today! Thanks for reposting the rotation.
    I'm really fortunate to have found this mobile yoga instructor. Good luck with your in-laws. It does sound like you will have a very interesting day with your inlaws!

    Tami, nice workouts! I hope you had a good time at the CABI party!
    I am sure I'll start feeling the strength benefits of yoga now that I'm training with Ashlee. I am feeling my upper back and abs improving with the Barre and Sculpted Movement Fusion classes.

    Did you show your DH how to use the Peloton?

    Good night ladies!

    Morning Ladies,

    Felt really good this morning, and no headache. I decided to do RAW Step #3. This one has very very basic step. She incorporated boxing and some weight moves with 10lb weights.

    Laurel, Great job on the workouts. I'm sure, with all of the workouts that Cathe has on the live channel, you probably have a few that you still need to try out. ;) Thanks for posting the rotation, I was going to have to go back in the thread to search for it. :D I'm so glad to hear that the weather cooperated for you during your trip. With the snow that came in up north, I was wondering if it would head your way. I'm surprised that I'm excited about starting the next rotation. Of course I will be doing some different workouts, but following the same format.

    Tami, Sounds like an awesome workout! I have to say that I have never heard of that type of party. Guess Tupperware started something long ago. :D Hope your friend had plenty of people show up. One of the things I liked about the way Laurel set this up, we do not have a set workout. I think that is what can make me feel dread for rotations. Now you can get in your Peloton workout too.

    Thelma, Good job on your workouts. Sorry that the energy wasn't there toward the end. Dang on the timeframe for seeing the GI specialists. I'm hoping that DH stays home today, he was saying something about having a meeting this morning. He did mention that he could call in, and I told him that he should do that instead of infecting everyone with his illness. :D

    Kelly will be offering two new workouts starting on June 17th.

    Cardio Sculpt Overload is an interval workout that is designed to burn fat, increase muscle definition and improve functional strength. With the added use of a weighted vest, Cardio Sculpt Overload will rev up your metabolism even more for an amazing "afterburn".
    Equipment used: 6 lb. weighted vest, 3 lb. DBs, 12 lb. DBs

    30-Minutes to Fitness "Strong & Lean"
    Workout One is a full-body workout that utilizes tubing, DBs and a barbell to effectively work each muscle group.
    (DBs can be used in place of a barbell).
    Beginner DBs 7/5
    Int 12/10
    Adv 20/15
    Workout Two is an upbeat and challenging kickboxing session that burns calories as it sculpts and tones a slimmer you!

    Have a great day!

    Hi Ladies! Today’s workout was a bit random but good. I had pencilled in an upper body workout and then Cathe posted what her Live class was going to be today and that sounded interesting. So I did both....and then added one on. I started with Cathe Live Upper Body Circuit with HiiT, and then did the Cathe Live workout which was Total Body Stability Ball. Based on her description of it yesterday and the fact it used light weights (5-10#), I expected this workout to be more cardio based, but it wasn’t. It was similar in format to LITE Stacked Sets Upper but with lighter weight/higher reps. And then in between each stacked set, she inserted a lower body workout holding the ball for more upper body resistance. It was good but, boy, had I known about the upper body emphasis, I may have rethought that first workout! :D So after, I decided to ease my arms up a bit with Cathe Live In The Ring which is a short, not too tough, kickboxing workout which was perfect.

    Tami, sounds like another great Pelaton workout! It really sounds like you are loving having that option at home. So good! Hope you enjoy the party. I have never heard of that either. Glad you like the sound of the rotation! For me, I love having the framework of the weeks but really want to be able to choose workouts that sound fun to me on any given day. I don’t know if it was recovering from that muscle tear or what, but I just feel like working out recently has been a chore, and I want it to be something I look forward to again.

    Thelma, so glad to hear you were feeling better again. I am sorry you have to wait so long for a GI appointment though. $84 for a haircut?!? :o That is outrageous. I pay a good amount to get my hair cut and colored, but the expensive part is the coloring, not the cut. Yowza! I don’t think I could pay that either, especially since my hair doesn’t really have a ‘style’. :# Anyhow, great workouts!!

    Laurie, glad to hear you are feeling better. Sounds like you picked a perfect workout for illness recovery. Those new workouts from KCM sound really good. I like that she is using a weighted vest in one of them. I have so many workouts anymore (especially with adding Live to the mix) that most days I think ‘no more!!’ But those workouts sound pretty tempting. B) I am glad you like the sound of the rotation as well. I am looking forward to it too because, as I was saying to Tami, I think I don’t see it as work. I will be curious how my body reacts to it. I am hoping it loves it so that, going forward, I can stay with a looser style of rotation unless I feel like something more structured (if that makes any sense).

    See you tomorrow.

    Hi Ladies, today's workouts were Ying/Yang Yoga and Sculpted-Movement Fusion. We got a serious ab workout during the Sculpted-Movement fusion. OMG, I thought my abs were going to explode! I woke up feeling exhausted and it looks like my plantar fasciitis has kicked in again. This afternoon I could hardly walk. I've been massaging my foot and will wear my boot to bed tonight. My stomach was acting up today too. Since I didn't feel good this afternoon, I decided to take a nap and woke up in a horizontal position. Not good because of the acid escaping!

    Laurie, so glad you're feeling better and great job with that RAW workout! I hope your DH stayed home and is feeling better.

    Thanks for posting the info on KCM's new workouts! They sound like fun!
    It does stink that I have to wait so long to see the GI specialist but at least I've had a better week this week. I know for sure that I can't eat sweet stuff anymore. I have a mega sweet tooth but now the thought of eating sweets makes me sick. This is a good thing at least!

    Laurel, fabulous workouts today!
    I wish I didn't have to wait so long for the GI doctor but I figured I could survive if I watch what I eat. Can you believe the cost of a haircut by a Deva Curl trained stylist? I found another place that charges $90. The place in Atlanta actually is cheaper at $75! I am just going to try other local stylists. I may end up shaving my head! Atlanta is expensive for haircuts!

    Hi Tami and Erika!

    Good night ladies!

    Morning Ladies,

    This morning was another RAW workout, this one was Real Raw 3. The workout is strength, and she did one side at a time for 30 seconds. After each body part she did some cardio. She incorporated ab work into each exercise also by lifting your leg. Over all I loved the workout.

    Will have a very busy weekend. DH's niece graduates from college, and my niece has her confirmation. Good thing one is on Saturday and the other on Sunday. My parents will be down here too, so it will be nice to have a short visit with them.

    Laurel, Awesome job on all the workouts. Glad that you where able to muscle through everything, I'm sure that you may encounter that again with her live workouts. You never know what she will be doing on that day. ;) It sounds like it was a good one, with it being muscle endurance. I for sure am going to order the Kelly workouts, I really do enjoy her style. I'm glad that she is doing another kickboxing workout, it has been a while since she has produced one. She does more boxing, than kickboxing. I may have to purchase a lighter weighted vest, mine is 12 lbs, and can be difficult to use for some workouts that she does. Yesterdays workout she indicated could be done with a vest, but mine was a tad to heavy. I also like the fact that I can incorporate other instructors with this rotation.

    Thelma, Good job on your workouts. Really sorry to hear that your PF is back and hurting so. I think we all know the feeling. I hope that you get some relief from your acid problem soon, that has to be painful as well. I'm glad to hear that this week has been better. My DH did stay home yesterday, and got some additional rest. Today he is off also, but this one was planned.

    Enjoy you weekend!

    Hi Ladies! I started my workout today with Cathe Live PHA3. The summer humidity is building and I was in an absolute puddle at the end. I still haven’t had the AC on, but that is going to start getting a workout today. It isn’t because it is too warm, yet, but, again, the humidity is getting pretty high. I don’t mind because it is still better than freezing in Alaska. :) Anyhow, for cardio, I kept it fun today and did LITE Cardio Party including the Calorie Crush <3 and Core 1. Good stuff, and perfect after that sweaty PHA workout.

    Laurie, sounds like another good workout. Glad you are continuing to feel better, especially going into a busy weekend. But it sounds like a fun weekend as well. Hopefully your DH is feeling better too after these couple of days off. I have to admit that I have never attempted any cardio with my weighted vest. I think I have the same one as you....the one Cathe released with STS. In fact, I have only used it with that series, but I would love to use it more. Of course, thinking about the sweat-fest that was this morning’s workout, maybe I don’t want that vest on me for the summer! :D

    Thelma, sounds like some more good workouts, but I am sorry both your foot and stomach were acting up. Hopefully you get some relief from both over the weekend. It is just another week until your DH joins you, right? Hopefully your life will normalize more after that and you will start feeling better. I am with you on not being able to eat sweets like I used to. My diet hasn’t been great since getting back from Wisconsin, and I really don’t like how it makes me feel. So back to cleaner eating I go.

    Tami and Erika, hope you are both well.

    Enjoy the weekend!

    Hi Ladies! Sorry I missed you yesterday and will be brief today .... work has been busy (which is great) and had a nail appt today at lunch ;) so just now was able to get on here and check in with you guys!

    Thelma: Sounds like your Yoga has been very strong all week and you are loving it! So great. I am glad you are feeling a little better and hopefully that continues until you get into the doctor.

    Laurie: Are those workouts of KCM's on the "On Demand" feature or new DVD's? Glad you are feeling better! Yes, incorporating the Peloton into our workouts will be a "must" due to my fun factor with that. DH decided he would try it out if I ordered toe cages .... so they are ordered and he can use his tennis shoes. We will see. Fingers crossed.

    Laurel: Fabulous job with the workouts! I am glad you are looking forward to the new set up of rotation as well. Flexibility and choices are great this time of year.

    Have a great weekend ladies! Meeting my BFF for lunch tomorrow. Workouts, Peloton and time with DH and Bernie are my only plans.

    Talk to you all on Monday.

    Hi Ladies, I hope you had a great weekend! I had a nice weekend. On Friday I did Restorative Healing yoga, Sculpted-Movement Fusion, and Yoga with Ashlee Lofton. On Saturday the Self Myofascial Release Workshop Part II and today I started the new rotation with S&S Total Giant Sets.
    My foot was bothering me on Saturday but today I wore my Keen hiking shoes all day long and my foot felt good. My feet love these shoes! I'm happy to report that my stomach is doing really good. I've cut back on one of my med doses and I'm still OK.

    I sent an email to my ex-coworkers and they tell me that things got pretty bad workload wise for them when I left! One of them said I couldn't have picked a better time to have left! We already had crazy workloads before I left! I feel bad for them. 3-4 people left after I did too. I am so happy I left that place!

    Laurie, that Real RAW workout 3 sounds great! Good job! I hope the graduation, confirmation, and visit with your parents were great!

    I hope you and your DH are over your colds.
    I am so happy that my stomach is doing better. I've been watching what I eat. I made a chicken stirfry with onions, peppers, squash, and carrots. I was worried the peppers and onions would make me sick but I was fine! Yaay!

    Laurel, great workouts on Friday!! I can't believe you haven't turned the AC on yet!
    DH will join me this coming Friday night! I'm so excited! He and his brother will leave MA on Thursday evening. They will drive for about 3 hours and will spend the night in a hotel in CT. He's doing this so that his older brother doesn't have to do an 18-19 hour trip in one shot. Poor thing was moving furniture all weekend. His brother came to get the furniture he was going to take and of course, DH had to help carry it out of the house and into their vehicle. Then followed them so he could help them unload it. Today he had to take out the furniture we were simply giving away to anyone in our town who wanted it. He also had to carry a very heavy loveseat (all by himself!) out of the house and onto the truck, then drove it to a friend's house about 45 minutes away. Poor thing is exhausted with this non-stop stuff. He has to pack just his personal things and whatever he is using in the kitchen. We hope our realtor's son will be able to give him a hand on Thursday in loading the trailer he's renting.

    My body doesn't even want to look at sweets. I'm so afraid to eat them. I also know that I can't do garlicky foods either. In the last two months, I've lost 2 dress sizes. I had gained weight during that long period of getting the house ready to sell. I had no idea I'd lost so many inches in addition to the 6lbs I've lost! I live in t-shirts and sweatpants now that I'm living alone! LOL
    I went shopping in one of our closets and I'm able to wear summer clothes I've not been able to wear in at least 3 years! So exciting! Of course, the stomach issues have helped me lose the 6 lbs but I think my body loves this yoga/barre/pilates thing!

    I am eating a pretty clean diet now but I am afraid I'm not eating enough calories. I'm not counting them at all but I think I'm not eating enough. For lunch, I've been having Greek yogurt with some fruit which is not enough of a meal. I'm doing OK with breakfast and dinner though.

    Tami, so glad work is busy! I hope your DH gets to use the Peloton once you get the toe cages! Good job with your workouts!!
    Yoga has been pretty awesome and even better now that I'm training at home with Ashlee.

    Hi Erika!

    Morning Ladies,

    Very busy weekend, the graduation was very nice. DH's niece graduated as a nurse. The confirmation was very nice also, and of course getting to see my parents. Although we will be seeing them for the next three weekends. DH and I will be going up for Memorial Day weekend, and then they are back for my nieces high school graduation. Very busy right now. This morning I did LiTe PHA 2. <3 The cold is still hanging around, but it is just sinus pressure, so can deal with it. Have to tell you that where my parents live they got snow yesterday. My Mom was really glad that she was down here.

    Laurel, Great job on those workout, and being a puddle after a PHA 3 workout isn't a surprise. Can't say that I blame you for wanting the ac on with humidity. I also can take heat, but add in humidity and then you are just miserable. I find it interesting that Cardio Party has fast become on of my favorite workouts. Must be the boxing/cardio combo. I can't even imagine what that weighted vest would have looked like after your sweatfest, it for sure would have been a soggy mess too. :D

    Tami, Dang on being so busy, but I'm sure you are rocking the workouts and your Peloton. I do hope that your DH is willing to get on it an workout, it will be good for him. Those new workouts are DVD's that she will be filming in June. She usually starts her pre-sale when she starts filming. Hope that you enjoyed your time with your BF, DH and Bernie.

    Thelma, Awesome job on the yoga and workout. I'm really glad to hear that your stomach and pf are doing better also. I love Keen shoes for work, they make some really great steel toed shoes also. I usually use them for gardening when I get a new pair. To bad that your xco-workers are experiencing such a workload, but I'm glad that you are happy about it not being at work having to deal with that mess. Your food choices sound really good, and of course eating clean doesn't hurt. Congrats on the weight loss!

    Have a great day!

    Hi Ladies! Hope you enjoyed the weekend. We had summer weather here and enjoyed it. Saturday we went to a local orchard as it is the end of strawberry season. So good. And yesterday we finally hit the golf course! Our games were very rusty after this long lay off from last August in Alaska, but it felt great to be back at it, that’s for sure.

    For workouts, on Saturday I did Jessica Smith Cardio Ball Blast followed by her stress relief stretch. Sunday was Fit Tower Total Body Extreme premix, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I followed it with Cathe’s 100 Live workout. Today was a cardio killer with a Cathe Live combo of Keep the Cardio Coming into Circuit Works plus Barre and Core. Good stuff.

    Tami, I am glad to hear things continue to pick up at work. No doubt it makes your days go by more quickly. Hope you enjoyed your time with your BFF this week...,and your Peloton. :) I hope your DH likes it when he starts using it too.

    Thelma, so glad to hear you are feeling better. Yay for the lost weight, though not feeling well isn’t really a fun way to lose weight. Like you, I spend most of my time anymore in my workout clothes, so it always surprises me when I put on ‘real’ clothing and it fits differently. Since I don’t weigh myself, my clothing (and a mirror) are my only guides for my weight, and it really doesn’t quite work when everything is stretchy. :D Anyhow, hope you continue to feel better. I am sure you are very anxious for Friday and your DH to be there. I bet your DH is more than ready to be done with this move after all that heavy moving he is doing right now. Hopefully you get a chance to sit on your deck together this weekend and just enjoy your new home for a minute. Great workouts!!

    Laurie, sounds like a busy but fun weekend. I saw there was snow forecast for parts of the country this weekend. :o Kind of hard to imagine here right now, to be honest. But I will take our forecast of record breaking heat next weekend over snow. B) Love that workout!

    See you tomorrow.

    Hi Ladies and Happy Monday! Weekend was good. I met my BFF for her Birthday lunch and caught up (again) she has been so busy on the weekends we don’t get to see each other as much so it is far and few between. I did get in my workouts on Saturday a.m. which was Stacked Sets: Legs followed by an Endurance Ride on the Peloton! Yesterday was Giant Sets + 45 min Peloton ride. Today I am headed to BootCamp after work. ;)

    Thelma: Way to go on all your YOGA and nicely done with Giant Sets as well! YAY. My DH has some Keen’s that he loves as well. He has foot pain badly due to PF if he doesn’t wear his insoles they really hurt. When he wears the Keens he doesn’t need his insoles. Glad to hear your stomach is doing so well. I am SO happy for you to be confirmed once again how glad you are to be away from your crazy last job. I bet now you think “how did I do that for so long?” I know that’s how I still feel after 4 years ... LOL I’m glad work is busy too. Still kind of “wait” on things to do which is frustrating but it is what it is. Everyone seems too busy to show me more so I continue to pick up wherever needed.

    Laurie: Excellent job getting in your PHA workout this a.m.! Sounds like a very busy family weekend forsure. Yikes on the snow, how crazy. Hopefully it isn’t sticking around for them? I am going to have to re-visit Cardio Party. I only did it the one time. Thank you for the info on the new KCM workouts coming up! Yes, fingers crossed he will ride the bike. I know it will be when I am not at home probably at first. Here’s hoping he has an open mind when I get him set up and show him his settings, etc. He thinks he should just jump on it with his flip-flops right now and no worries. UMMMMM …. What?!? LOL

    Laurel: Fabulous combos/workouts as always! :) Way to go. Your weather sounds AMAZING. We had some really nice weather a week ago and now it is more typical NW Spring with clouds, rain, wind and then sun. All in one day. I will take it over smoke though. Truly hoping that is not our summer again this year. YUM on the fresh strawberries. As I mentioned to Thelma, I am still in the “waiting for what is next” mode at work. But when it is so busy I just help the girl who I trained. So still very odd/frustrating but if I am busy I just do what needs to be done and move on. I mentioned to DH that maybe I should apply for our Escrow Dept instead. They are SO busy and need help all the time. Just a strange feeling to want to do more and learn more but nobody really has time to show me. {sigh} :(

    Hi Erika :)

    Talk to you ladies tomorrow! Tami
  • ThelmaSWThelmaSW Posts: 1,428Member Member Posts: 1,428Member Member
    Hi Ladies, today's workouts were Beginner Gentle, Barre Level 1&2,
    Jessica Smith 5 Ml Walk On. I cleaned the windows in the great room today. I think these are 6-7 ft windows so I used a microfiber mop. I didn't have a window cleaner and used an all purpose cleaner. It cleaned the windows but it left a film (bummer!). I'll get windex tomorrow and will clean them again.

    Laurie, you had quite a busy weekend but it sounds like a great one! I can't believe the town where your parents live got snow yesterday!! Sorry, your cold is still lingering!

    I am thrilled to be feeling better! I have such a hard time finding shoes that fit that I think I should order another pair of these Keen shoes. How nice that you can get to wear Keen shoes at work!
    My previous job is a mess apparently. People are miserable but they've been there forever so they won't look for another job. Thanks for the congrats on the weight loss!

    Laurel, so glad you had such a nice weekend and that you got to play golf! Wonderful workouts!

    I feel like I'm not going to need all the real clothes I own here! I'll be donating some clothes in the future for sure. I do weigh myself so I knew about the weight loss.
    DH is so ready to be here and out of his previous job. He didn't get home from work will almost 9PM tonight! We talked for a little while and then he continued working at home! I hope he and my BIL will be here no later than 10PM on Friday night.
    How was your trip to FL Laurel?
    I don't really think about work anymore but

    Tami, so glad you also had a nice weekend!
    I have to use my orthotics with my Keen's. Glad they help your husband too! I really never think about work but your question is perfect "how did I do this for so long?"!

    Morning Ladies,

    This morning was a great workout with LiTe Rev'd Up Rumble. <3

    Laurel, Glad to hear that you are in the summer mode in your area, and had a chance to get the golf clubs out. Just love the taste of fresh strawberries, they are always so juicy and sweet. Awesome job on all the workouts, they always sound like a lot of fun. I hope that it gets a bit warmer for this Memorial Day weekend, but I'm sure the snow was gone fairly quick. They had warmer weather up there than we did down here yesterday.

    Tami, Nice that you had a good chat with your bf. Great job on all your workouts, and I hope the bootcamp class was good. The Cardio Party workout really does grow on you, and I think it helped that Cathe did a lot of the moves from that workout during the road trip. LOL about your DH wanting to get on the Peloton with his flip flops on. I'm sure that would not be a good idea, at least that never worked when I was a kid and riding my bike. :D Yesterday there was a young guy in the parking lot with his trunk open. He was changing his flip flops to his steel toes shoes in the parking lot. It wasn't warm out either. :/

    Thelma, Great job on your yoga and walk. Those are some tall windows, you might need to get yourself a squeegee for cleaning them. Our company has shoe vendors here every February so we can get new shoes. One of the companies always gives us t-shirts with our purchase. I now have two t-shirts with the Keen logo on them. ;)

    Have a great day!

    Hi Ladies! Today’s workout was S&S Total Body Giant Sets and the S&S core work. It has been a very long time since I have done that Giant Sets workout, and it is SO good. I really do need to do it more. Anyhow, for cardio, I did Cathe’s Intensity workout. Always a favorite of mine. :)

    Tami, glad you enjoyed your time with your BFF. I am sorry to hear things are still a little hit-or-miss at work though. Great job with the workouts. Sure sounds like you are enjoying the Peloton. But you had me laughing by saying your DH thought he could hop on with his flip flops and go. :D Not quite, right? But I really hope he enjoys it when he does hop on it. I hope your summer isn’t too dry either. We are looking at record breaking heat this weekend with highs in the upper 90s. :o Some of the records we might break are from the 1920’s, so this really is unusually warm for here this time of year. But I’m okay with it right now. :)

    Thelma, great workouts! It is funny you mentioned doing your windows because I was thinking today I need to do mine....and then wondered how I am going to reach the top of them! I, too, will have to find something to help. Our trip to Florida is this coming weekend. Thankfully my DH was able to guide my MIL in making some different decisions, so we have a better idea of what is happening and it is much better than the original plan for all involved. Of course when we get there, it may be a different story! :p

    Laurie, great workout :) ! The fresh strawberries were very good....much better than what we got when we were living in Florida. I think the slightly cooler temperatures help get them a little sweeter. Now I am looking forward to peach season. The orchard we went to for the strawberries will be bringing peaches to a outdoor market just down the hill from us. There is nothing better than a good, fresh peach in the summer time so I will be there every Saturday morning as long as they have peaches. :D My sisters had snow yesterday.....and quite a bit of it. Makes me feel slightly guilty about talking about getting fresh peaches starting next week! o:);)

    See you tomorrow.

    Hi Ladies,

    I didn't realize how long it's been since I've been on here last. I ended up with a migrane (my 2nd ever) that resulted in an evening of repeated vomiting due to the pain. It took me a few days to feel back to normal, so workouts were limited until Sunday. Back at it this week, and last nights Rev'd up Rumble couldn't have come at a better time. I had a horrible day at work, lots of tears, and feeling very unappreciated. Punching with some gloves was just perfect!

    Thelma, I'm so sorry to hear the foot and stomach are acting up. It seems like when one thing starts, the rest does too. I hope you find relief for both soon! Your yoga private class sounds awesome, I'm so jealous of that!!

    Tami, glad to hear you're keeping busy at work still. I will admit, I don't like not being busy, but I like to be able to at least "see" the bottom of my inbox by the end of the day. Many days I'm getting up to 200 emails and all require research, so it may take me days to get through Monday's emails and then add on Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. I'm hoping that it gets a bit lighter soon so I can feel ok walking away to take a lunch break, go to my son's game, etc. I've been missing out on a lot of that lately, to just be able to get caught up and sleep at night without worrying about work.

    Laurel, what a wonderful weekend it sounds like you had. Can you send some nice weather this way? I hope they get your flooring in soon, that always baffles me when they rip something out and then don't have the replacement ready!

    Laurie, thanks for the heads up on the KCM workouts, I'll have to check them out! Sounds like you had a nice weekend with a fun graduation! I hope you're feeling back to 100%...of course this constant rain/cold is not helping, I'm sure. I'm looking forward to some sunshine this weekend (hopefully)!

    Time for some dinner, puppy snuggles and the bands and bodyweight workout from Lite tonight. Have a good one!

    Hi Ladies, today's workouts were Yoga Basics, Yoga with Ashlee, Fit Tower Total Body, Stretching. I loved Ashlee's yoga class today. We pretty much did the same sun salutations as before but this time she had me do some minor adjustments during warrior one and two and that took it to the next level. My inner thighs were working really hard! I was feeling pretty tired this morning and even after the first yoga class but after Ashlee's class I felt energized.

    I'm probably going to have to cut back on the yoga classes because I'm feeling tired. I took a little cat nap this afternoon in order to do Cathe's workout.

    Laurie, a great workout and so much fun! We have pretty tall windows. Most of them are not real windows but just a big piece of glass which is great for cleaning. I will look into a squeegee because I really could've used one today.
    How nice that your employer lets you buy Keen shoes. I would love a Keen t-shirt! At my previous job, they have something similar for the people who need utility shoes.

    Laurel, nice workouts! I really liked that S&S Total Body Giant Sets. Window cleaning is not fun but the windows look pretty clean most of the day. At the end of the day when the sun starts to go down, it hits the house and that is when I see some kind of film on the windows. I got Windex and redid the windows but the film was there at the end of the day. I'll have to get a squeegee per Laurie's suggestion. Downstairs windows tomorrow!
    Great news on your DH convincing his mother to make different decisions for the move!

    Erika, I'm sorry you had that terrible migraine and a bad day at work yesterday! Glad the kickboxing workout helped with all that stress!

    My stomach thankfully is doing better but I can't seem to shake the plantar fasciitis. My private yoga classes are amazing. I'm so happy I found this instructor here.

    Hi Tami!

    Morning Ladies,

    I was in one of those moods this morning, and kind of let the time get away from me so I had to do a shorter workout. I opted for Jillian's Lift and Shred W1, and I used my weighted vest. This one is actually very good, so I didn't feel to bad about doing a shorter workout.

    Laurel, Great job on all your workouts! That giant sets is a good one, and you did a fav of yours also. Oh yum on the peaches. I bet that they are so delicious when they are fresh. You are probably right on the strawberries, we may have smaller strawberries, but they are so very good and sweet. The cooler temps probably do have a factor in that. We are suppose to get some warmer temps this weekend. Hopefully this will give us a chance to open up some windows and getting the house aired out.

    Erika, Nice workout! ;) Such a good punching workout for sure. I'm so sorry to hear about your job situation. Having a job that makes you feel that way can't be fun, and I hope that you got plenty of puppy snuggles. I still have not tried out that band workout, but it sounds like it is good. This rain is very depressing to watch every day, so I do hope that the sun starts shining again this weekend. We are going up to my brothers cabin. It usually is warmer up in that area than down here.

    Thelma, Good job on the yoga and the Cathe workout. Interesting how tired you get from the yoga. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, we did a stretching/yoga flow class with Cathe on Friday night. At first I was hyped up and it took a while before I started to feel tired. But once my head hit the pillow, I had one of my best nights sleeping. Hope you are able to find something that works for your windows. I know that they use some type of window cleaner with the squeegee that is diluted in water. It is sudsy, but boy does it clean the windows.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Ladies! Today’s workout was another long cardio workout but also lots of fun. I did Cathe Live Rock It Sock It into Cathe Live Boxing with Leg Blasts. For being 90 minutes long, it flew by.

    Erika, good to see you! I am sorry about the migraine, though. My DH suffers from them, and it is no fun. I am sorry to hear work is causing you so much stress as well. Hopefully things ease up soon so you can enjoy your summer. No real progress on our shower/floor unfortunately. Somebody did show up yesterday to prep the area for re-tiling, but also said the tile hadn’t arrived yet. I am trying to stay patient....trying. :s Great workouts! Love that LITE kickboxing workout!

    Thelma, great workouts! My MIL uses water, white vinegar and a little dish soap to clean her windows.....and never gets that film. I have never tried it but am going to this time. I have tried every commercially made glass cleaner, and they all leave a film. We have far too many windows in our house to be staring out through a haze. Now I just need to get a spray bottle! Here is a website with some info on how to do this:

    Laurie, great workout! Hope your weather improves for the weekend. I would imagine you are ready for some consistent sunshine and warmer temps.

    See you tomorrow.

    Hi Ladies ~ Sorry I missed you all yesterday. Had another “fill in the gaps” at work so I stayed busy, which was nice. No workout yesterday but I did get up this a.m. and do PHA2 ….. LOVE <3 it always. Depending on what happens for tonight after work I will either have a nice PELOTON ride or we are possibly going to dinner and the Carrie Underwood concert! Business associate and now has become a friend has his boss coming into town and might have a couple extra tickets. So waiting to hear back.

    Since I wasn’t here to tell you guys yesterday …… Monday night’s BootCamp class was SO good! One of my favorites to date I would say. OR Maybe I was just really in the mood for 60 minutes of HiiT Intensity. Before class ever started however Katy gave me major “crapola” over not being in her classes anymore :s and went on and on asking me if I like the Peloton better, etc. It was her way I am sure of saying she misses me but it was super awkward having the class of peeps listening. YIKES.

    Thelma: Great job with the Cathe Total Body workouts! You have been doing such an amazing job, along with your Yoga. So glad you are continuing to love Ashlee’s yoga.

    Laurie: Excellent job with the workouts! Rev’d Up Rumble is always a fun one. Then a nice JM workout despite not being quite in the right mood. Sounds like you hit “play” despite it and that is sometimes the best thing to shake us out of it!

    Laurel: Way to go with the S&S Total Body Giant sets and S&S core. It is such a great workout, I love those workouts from her S&S series so much. The last two (series) have been excellent!!! As we all know. Nicely done with the looooooooong cardio as well. Always amazes me. Way to WORK. I bet you were laughing hearing about DH and his mindset of just wearing his flip-flops. He said he is comfortable in them. LOL I explained why that isn’t a good idea despite the obvious slippage but for his form and everything potentially hurting because of it. Then I had his attention. So hopefully this weekend we can have a brief lesson and get him going. The toe clips are supposed to arrive today.

    Erika: Good to hear from you. Your schedule sounds very hectic right now and I don’t blame you one bit for just needing some sleep, R&R and puppy snuggles. Hang in there lady! I hope it eases up soon for you. That pressure is never fun.

    Hope you ladies enjoy the rest of your day – talk to you tomorrow! Tami

    Hi Ladies, today's workouts were Beginner Gentle, Barre Level 1&2, Window, and Porch Cleaning.
    OMG, the Barre class was a total sweat fest today! I love this instructor. She puts a lot of effort into planning each torture class and she has a notebook with her notes. I am getting serious ab workouts. I heard today that they will be adding a pilates class which is probably going to be another killer. I hope it's during the day time so I can take it. I don't like leaving the house at night by myself.

    The porch I cleaned is the screened porch which runs the length of the house. It was full of pollen and bugs! So much for it being screened! I spent 3 hours between the porch and the windows. I'm so upset about this Windex stuff but I won't worry about it. DH can clean the windows when he's here.

    Our buyers got their mortgage commitment today! Yaay! I can't believe DH will be here on Friday night!

    Laurie sounds like a great workout!
    I am not sure why I end up so tired from the yoga and barre or sculpting classes. I think it's because I do two hours. The funny thing is that the yoga class usually ends up being relaxing and then I go to the Barre or sculpting classes and it's totally the opposite. I am sleeping well though!
    I'm going to look into squeegees on

    Laurel, what a great workout combo! It sounds like a lot of fun!
    Thanks so much for that link with the vinegar recipes! I am going to try it but not this week. Tomorrow I will be cleaning 3.5 bathrooms, doing laundry and will get our guest room ready for my BIL. On Friday I'll clean the floors and will dust and I have some ironing to do now that I have skinny clothes to wear! LOL
    I think I'll dump out the Windex and will reuse that spray bottle after a good wash! I will probably use your MIL's recipe with the liquid soap to get that film out.
    I'm with you on the peaches! I've been looking for them every week but I was told they will be ready in June.

    Tami, great workouts! I love that PHA2 workout! I hope you went to the Carrie Underwood concert! How exciting!
    I'm sure Katy misses her star peep! She shouldn't make you feel guilty in front of the class though. At least you're still going to the class every once in a while. I thought you were thinking about canceling your membership?

    Thanks for the kudos on my workouts. I've been trying very hard. Ashlee is awesome and I love the progress I'm making. The yoga place I go to doesn't even begin to compare with the way Ashlee teaches. She knows the form and is good about providing workarounds. I think I may take her Tuesday's at 9:30 classes down the street. It's a yoga flow class and she says that class is very small so the student gets more personal attention. She says I'm ready for that class.
