Dec 1-24 20 min of Caroline Girvan - now that sounds great. Also a Katya challenge. It's a fun time of year. I will watch what Caroline puts out and perhaps start it a week in. Really liked today's workout - it alternated BW and weighted exercises, hit the big muscles, was mostly low impact. I used my KBs. But I prefer doing snatches with DBs.

Thanks for the heads up!!! That's something I can get excited for.

Sandy - I'm making week long rotations based on different instructors. Keep your comments coming as I made one for Daniel and another for Precision KB.

Of the two, Precision KB is more traditional KB, but they both make good workouts.

I am doing the 24 days of Katja as posted, but I think I'll do the 24 Caroline G Sun-Fri off Sat starting Dec 5 ending Dec 31. I think I'll do Precision KB on the Saturdays.

Of course, I have to allow myself to fall back if that ends up being too much. My finisher mentality will keep going to finish by the 31st even if I'm on the brink of another niggle/injury, so keep me in line.

I really like the flexibility of seeing the workouts and scheduling them on my own. Then I can pick and chose which body parts to work based on which play well together with my different workouts to try and get the most out of them.

I was in AZ for almost three weeks with my dad and other family. Got home last night. Very long drive to do alone in two days! Well, Cyric was with me but no help driving or keeping away the sleepies!

Happy to hear from you Vannie. I was just about to check in with you.

Thanks, buff!

My eating was out of control while I was gone and I didn't even get 9000 steps most days. Sitting in the car for two days straight made me stiff and tight. I think I'll be focusing on p/rehab and mobility this month and try to add in some more Rowvember and Christmas workouts from YouTube.

I decided to take your advice. I started with day 4 glutes since it went well with Katja's hips/glute stretch mobility class.

Spending time with your family was worth the missing steps and added calories, Vannie.

As we get cold and snow, Helen must be getting hot weather?

Sandy, I definitely agree it was worth it. I just have to get back on track now!
