Total Max Mixers - Week of February 28

Good morning everyone. I took a rest day yesterday since I haven't taken one in a couple of months. It was a rainy day so perfect for lazing around and reading.

I hope everyone is having a good Sunday.

I'm trying to work out a doable plan for the month. I need to start my training for the virtual row/bike/run tri and yesterday a friend said she's doing BeSLAM Remastered and asked if I would do kettlebells along with her for accountability and of course I said yes. And I don't want to give up jumping rope and am trying to do more Pilates and yoga. Arghh! Yes, I always try to take on too much!

Hi everyone. I am resting today and glad cause Iím beat. Ben and I took about a
40 minute drive to Bainbridge, Ga., just to get out for a bit and to see some of their famous old houses, many Victorian style. Most of them are private dwellings so we couldnít go in but it was fun to admire them from the car. A nice easy getaway.

Vannie I love your enthusiasm for all forms of exercise. Thatís wonderful. I donít see how you keep it straight.

Thanks for faithfully starting us off JBliff.

Waves to all.

Happy March! I was up by 6 so it feels like it's gonna be a good day! First on the agenda is getting my spreadsheets updated and printed. I was rather ADD yesterday flitting about, forgetting what I was in the middle of and starting smthg new. I did spend 2 hours with my bike, but it wasn't a workout, it was trying to get my wheel back on, with many texts and pictures sent to my dad and brother. Trying to help someone fix something they can't see was tricky! I finally got it all aligned and back together and on the trainer and then the brakes were hitting the wheel and it would only turn with great effort. That's when I hit my patience and persistence limit and lost it. Hubby looked at it for me and apparently there was a bulge in the tire somehow. The guy at the bike shop had fully aired it up for me but that meant it would no longer fit in btwn the brakes and despite all the text help and YouTube, I could not get the brakes loosened so I finally had to let air out of the tire to fit it into the space. When I aired it back up I guess I did smthg wrong! It seems like it sounds different from before but I will try it out and see if hubby needs to make any other adjustments for me. I was surprised and pleased with myself that I lasted 2 hours and didn't give up until I just couldn't figure it out. I am not known for my patience or frustration tolerance!

Mon 3/1 0 minutes
7 minutes (from L. Holden 30-Day Qi Gong challenge day 3) MON
13 minutes (from C. Jordan Exercises to Help High Hamstring Tendonitis Pain, YT) MON
28 minutes (from 2.0 mi for 10k trainer wk3 day3/Ambient Osaka Cherry Blossoms walk 1/Zombies Run S3M29 repeat) MON 1st time for Ambient
16 minutes (from L. Brooks Shut Up and Train workout 1) MON 1st time 16
10 minutes (from Quick Fix Pilates Abs -Stabilization) MON
13 minutes (from Strong Knees stretch)

Didn't get started till noon so I was too hungry to do Fightmaster yoga like I had planned. My hamstring tendons are hurting again today so I kept the kettlebells light and didn't go deep in swings and deadlifts. Before breakfast I got hubby's laundry done and bathrooms cleaned. This really seems to be the best way for me, at least right now, have one big chore done before breakfast and then I don't feel guilty working out or dreading that I still have to clean.

Workout yesterday was Jessica Smith 4 Power Walk Mile 1 and KCM Body Training first half.

Ugh, going to be super tired today. Fell asleep at 11 pm, woke at 2 am, still awake at 4 am, then moved to the couch. I think I fell back to sleep around 4:30 am, the woke at 5:40 when I heard DS get up. Tried to fall back to sleep but gave up about 7 and just got up.

I have to go get my thyroid ultrasound today at 4:50 too. Ugh, so late in the day. I couldnít get anything any earlier.

Vannie - You lasted longer than I wouldíve trying to fix your bike. What a hassle.

Waves to everyone else!

Since I was so tired yesterday I didnít want to do a workout that tired me out even more so I just did Cathe Lower Impact Step (no blasts) and her Total Body Strength just upper body.

Waves to everyone!
