Not sure

I'll be checking in tomorrow (long day at work, etc.) so I'll reply to myself.

(Makes shout outs easier) ha!

1/5/2020: By golly, I think I have the 2020 down pat now. Only took 5 days of checking in. I did Cardio Coach Volume 1 (with the last interval done twice) for my mile. Treadmill (ended up being 2). And I followed it up with a "Rock Ride" with Sam Yo - 45 minutes and a pretty impressive graph if I do say so myself!!! A quick 5 minute stretch after.

Now it's off to bed to get rested for work tomorrow.

Make it a great day.

Hello everyone, Iím still here....

Jan 3:
~Essentrics Precho 9 - standing segment
~Body Groove Fit: workout #1
~Gaia: AM Yoga For Your Week Standing Poses

Jan 4:
~Essentrics Precho 9 - standing
~JumpSport streaming: Level 1 Cardio SanFran Fitness, 15 min only - This was a bit too fast paced and higher impact than my low back is ready for. My back is better, but not 100% yet.
~Headstand practice - have been missing my bench!
~Gaia: AM Yoga For Your Week, Twists - My low back & SI loved this one

Jan 5:
~Essentrics PCW 9 - all
~4 km walk
~Body Groove: Groovy Pilates - this was nice, but it felt more like ballet than Pilates
~Headstand practice
~Gaia: AMY4YW: Hip Openers - love the seated flow in this one

Cleda - Iíve started following Jay Shetty on IG and FB. I really like him, he is very much about positive thinking and self care. I believe he does podcasts.

Lili - I agree that the JumpSport site is not as good as Bellicon so I wonít be renewing. I think Iíll go back to free styling it on my reboubder while I watch BritBox. Iíve wondered about the anti inflammatory diet as I do have some joint issues. Do you feel it helps?

Helen - Nice score on the rebounder, I hope you enjoy it!

Waves to all!

Re: Podcasts - I would sort of like to get into some podcasts, and I know that there is literally something on every topic imaginable. However, I know myself and I would never be able to keep up with listening. There is just soooooo much out there (books, tv, social media) to keep up with. It's overwhelming really. I know I'm missing out on some good stuff.

Helen - Hooray--your Step Boss DVDs arrived !!

It looks like everyone is off to a great start for the year .

Yes, Step Boss arrived .... Friday? ... Took a couple of hours to get all the breakdowns & enter everything into the database, but it's done.

Oh yes ! there is an enormous range of topics for podcasts, and a multitude of pods on any given topic !!
300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every

.MINUTE!, and there are over 800K podcasts to choose from.

Oooohhh, I so need to do MORE yoga. When DD did some Travis with me, it was evident I was not as flexible as she'd remembered me to be. Your workouts show that you do some EVERY DAY.

CLEDA
Glad the playlist was useful to you. CC1? There's a memory! Been years since I've regularly used those, and the iTrains too.

Badges - even seniors at school like getting stickers.

It's Tuesday... and cool but super humid - woke up to heavy fog and wet skin. Not sure what I'll be doing today, not planned it yet - that'll be the first thing I do.

Helen - I heard that statistic about Youtube before and was floored! I used your link today to find some rebounder workouts.
Pam - So far we haven't seen any improvements, but we are only on day 5 of a 30 day program. We are still in the you're going to feel tired & angry stage. I have done it before, a few years ago, and didn't notice any difference in my knee arthritis, but eventually I had more energy and felt better overall. I'll keep you posted.
Cleda - way to keep up!
Mena - good luck with every day for 2020! That sounds overwhelming to me, but with a variety of workouts and intensity levels, I'm sure it can be done.

1/5 - 4 Miracle Miles.
1/6 - Dog walk, then I started a UR from Youtube that had dance in the title. Unfortunately, it was led by the background exerciser from Intermediate UR who drives me crazy. I lasted 8 minutes and switched to SanFran Fitness 25 Minute something. I didn't always keep up, but I enjoyed the moves.

Tues 1/7 - Cathe - Low Impact Step. I know this is Cathe's idea of a beginner step workout, but it always winds me. I feel kind of embarrassed about that .

Jan: 7/7
YTD: 7/366

Helen - That's a crazy statistic about YouTube. I believe it though.

A 91-minute workout today??!!!! You're an Amazon !! Great job.

Waves to Everyone .

It was ONLY from ICE, with emphasis on the Intermediate - have been consistently surprised how UN-tough this set is.

As to getting winded - that's being told where you need to focus. Bodies are quite informative like that - which can be annoying....

The mother of Ur is back. To make a long story shorter. I got tired of watching & waiting so on Saturday when I took Ur to potty & she promptly vomited her chicken & rice I loaded her in the car & took her to the emergency clinic in Knoxville. They repeated the ultrasound & she definitely has a mass in her abdomen. They wanted to keep her until the specialist would be in on Monday. We'll, the vet called me in the middle of church saying decisions needed to be made. I left church crying in the middle of the service. They did aspirates of the fluid in her belly & they were full of bacteria. The surgeon was called in & he removed the mass. He said it was a huge necrotic mass that was rotting & disintegrating. It was where the small intestine meet's the large intestine so he had to remove parts of both. Anxious, anxious days. Dh hadn't gone to church so I sat there all alone. Surgeon gave her a 75% chance of survival. We'll ..today we picked her up & brought her home.

She's not out of the woods totally. She's on multiple antibiotics & pain meds. There is always the chance the intestines won't heal. She is so scrawny, bruised & shaved, but the light is back in her eyes. There's hope. I'm exhausted!
