Total Max Mixers - Week of November 15
Starting us off for the week!

Friday we were puppy sitting so had to do a quick workout. I did Step Sync Combined Step Combos Section 2 times premix. The puppy cried at the basement door the whole 30 minutes (and yes, DH & DS were both upstairs with her). I also took the puppy for a couple walks too. Yesterday was a 40 Minute Walk outside. It was chilly (in the 30ís) but sunny and I just felt like I needed to get out of the house so bundled up and went for a walk.

My sister said her scans were awful. She said the injection was bad and she had to lay still for 2 hours on her back which she never does because of the cancer. Then they make a cast thing of her body and put her in with plastic wrapped all around her whole body. She is so strong.

JBliff - Businesses here must enforce the mask mandate so when in public you donít see too many without one on. Iím thinking about ordering Catheís set of bands with the handles so I can do Body Weight and Bands better. I really like that workout but end up using dumbbells during the handle band segments because the handle bands I have just donít work well with the exercises. Plus I only have 2 and they are old. (The other ones broke).

Waves to Vannie, Karen & Gibbee!

My workout yesterday was Cardio Party + core premix.

- Yikes, those scans sound awful. Your sister is a trooper! Good idea to get bands from Cathe. I got some Cathe bands with handles years ago from Marshalls that are still going strong. They are high quality and much stronger than other brands I've bought.

Waves to everyone. Have a good day.

Quick question. I'm starting Perfect 30/XTrain tmrw and I never preview workouts anymore. Do i need to get out my barbell for P30 or is it all dumbbells? I haven't been reading the reviews thread either. I gotta look over the exercise list tonight!

Vannie - Cathe only uses dumbbells and bands in Perfect 30. She does use a couple plates for heels or toes or something but you can do without that

Thanks, Cheryl!

Hi guys. I thought I posted yesterday but I guess not. Just got back from a 4.3 mile run a little while ago. Yesterday four of us did 10 miles using run/walk intervals. It was a wonderful 58 degrees yesterday am.

Cher your poor sister. It sounds like she has been so patient and brave throughout which surely has helped her get through things. Iím glad you were able to get out and walk some even if it was cold.

Jbliff I agree that it is better to get higher quality bands and tubing. All my Cathe bands are still going strong and some of the cheaper ones have not held up.

Vannie that sounds like a great rotation. I think we all like XTrain a lot!

Gibbee how are you and Alex doing?

Workout yesterday was IDTV Blissful Hips with Mychal.

It was so windy and rainy here yesterday we ended up losing power at 2:30 pm. Luckily I had finished making my pot of chili and finished baking my apple crumble desert I made. We bought a generator back in March so this was the first time we got to use it. It was kind of nice being able to have the tv and a light on once it got dark. I also was able to plug in my slow cooker to heat my chili back up when it was time for dinner. Luckily it came back on about 8:30. I was glad because temps were going down in the 30ís last night and it was getting chilly in the house.

Our Governor is closing down restaurants again. No in building dining but they can still do out door dining (in Michigan in November???) and carry out. She also closed down movie theaters, schools.....high schools & colleges, group fitness classes unless outdoors. She did leave gyms open for individual workouts and hair salons & Barber shops for now. This is for 3 weeks than weíll see.

Waves to everyone.

Hi all. My workout yesterday was LITE Stacked Upper Body + extended stretch + 25 minutes on the elliptical.

Cher - Good thing you had the generator, and I'm glad the power came back on before it got really cold. It's probably wise for your governor to impose some more restrictions. I just saw this morning that the number of cases in MI increased 6-fold from March. If only people would just observe basic precautions the country could be reopened like Australia and New Zealand.

Vannie - Have fun with the rotation. It's a tough one.

- 58 degrees is great weather for a run. We'll be in the 30s at night for the next several days. I'm kind of looking forward to it.

Hi to Gibbee. Have a good day, all.

karjoy 11-16-20 08:51 PM

Hi all. Iím resting today and Judi and I will run in the morning. It will be in the mid 40s. Yippee!

Cher I hate to hear about the closings but if the hospitals get overwhelmed that could be a catastrophe. If people would just behave themselves. But they will not.
Glad your power came back on before it got too cold.

Out of time, night all, kareng

My workout yesterday was Mobility Basics + core.

Have a good day, everyone.
