Oh wow, time for a new thread! Donna, thanks for starting it.

I forgot to post yesterday's workout. It was from the Power Walk dvd, the warm up, and first mile, then I walked a few minutes while watching tv for a cool down.

Today is a strength workout, not sure which one yet.

I'm also planning on taking down the Christmas tree today. It makes me a little sad to do it, but I do like getting back the extra space in the living room.

Hi,

I forgot to post my workout!

Yesterday, in addition to my formal workout - DD and I took another walk. We have walked quite a bit this break - I ended up with over 12K steps. I think it is easier for teens to talk when walking b/c they don't have to make eye contact. We haven't had many deep conversations on our walks, but at least we are communicating and there is no phone! LOL. Maybe I can convince her to go again today. I wish my doggie was able to walk longer distances, but w/ her arthritis, she just can't and my other doggie doesn't really like to walk, she'd rather stay at home and play ball.

Anyway - today was:

Trifecta Pilates - January 2020 workout - bend and stretch - this was LONG one - as in over an hour, but I enjoyed the slower pace and attention to detail. I can't always set aside this much time, but today worked for me.

So far, I like the membership site. And, in fact, I may change my plans and focus on that instead of yoga. I think Pilates may help me more in terms of rebuilding strength, stability and balance. But, we shall see!

I also did - Pahla B - Hot 100 Day #1 - including a warm-up, cool-down and finisher.

So, my plan for the month is either Pilates or Yoga with a Hot 100 workout and as much walking and informal exercise I can fit in.

I hope everyone has a good day and start to the new year!

Sherry - taking down the decorations makes me sad, too. My DH is always in a hurry to do it and usually has it done before noon on New Year's Day!

Hi Everyone,

Well, I'm decided to go with Pilates this month - - I can feel the decline from not doing it often enough. I'm going to mostly follow Trifecta Pilates.

So, today was:

Trifecta Pilates - Full Body Burn - I guess the best way to describe this one is reformer inspired - a lot of work in planks and variations thereof....it was more challenging than yesterday's workout but about half as long!

Pahla B - Hot 100 Day # 2 (including warm-up, finisher and cool down).

My DD went back to school today but I am off and just did some cleaning/decluttering. This year, I would like to get my house organized and thinned out. I hope to focus on one area a month. Today was the bathroom and linen closet.

back to work for me tomorrow, but at least it is a Friday!

Donna

I'm keeping my tree up until Jan 15. I was away for the first half of December so I want to enjoy it a bit longer since I didn't put it up until December 14.

Yesterday I did Jessica's 15-Minute Standing Cardio Strength [Floor Work Free!] Workout and rode my exercise bike for 30 minutes. Today I was working from home and had a busy day, but I did go outside for a brief walk and did Jessica's 15-Minute Quick At Home Fat Burning Cardio Blast. I will ride my bike later tonight. I wanted to start Jessica's January Jump Start, but I was just too busy with work to do a half hour workout. My boss is taking tomorrow afternoon off so I'm hoping to start then. We'll see.

Donna, do you have a reformer? I really know very little about Pilates. Have fun at work, lol! I go back to the office on Monday. That's going to be rough. The last day I was there was December 18!

Sherry, the Power Walk DVD is one of my favorites. I also like the Get Strong one.

Waves!

Happy New Year!!!

Hi everyone,

I've just been walking with Leslie, so will stick to that for this month. Unless I decide to add some Jessica walks in, also.

I didn't do so well the last week of December, getting very little in. But today and yesterday were both two mile walks from Miracle Miles.

You all are doing great with your workouts, walks and steps, etc.

We're having house guest tomorrow, so I may not have time for more than a mile...if that. Spent today getting the guest room and bathroom ready. I sometimes takeover that room, from time to time. So, always doing laundry, bed sheets and cleaning up the day before.

Ready for bed...Night all!

new to this check in

I thought maybe I would join a check in and I have been doing JS now for the last week and a half. I am trying to get back into working out and she is easy on my joints.

not sure if I am supposed to check in daily or whenever I do a workout.

Today I can't remember the name of her workout LOL it's in my basement and I did write it on my calendar I promise LOL

I'm feeling back to normal now, thank goodness. I'm off today to stay with my niece, but she's at school now so I'm just about to run a few errands before I have to pick her up this afternoon. Then I have to give her dinner and drive her to cheerleading practice. I don't know how parents do all this, LOL!

I haven't returned to working out yet, but I probably will later this week and just start out with the 'under the weather' workout and take it from there. It's very windy here today but if that improves then I'll go for a walk later.

About Get Strong, I really like that workout. The length doesn't bother me, but the length of the Stepping Strength DVD workout is too long and I have trouble finding the time, so I usually do the youtube version.

Later!
