barre 3 weights work out -- sadly they had more upright rows. Saw my PT. I am making progress, though still have a way to go, but I think after one more visit I will be on my own.

Cynthia, that would be very mean. But I know Pure barre is super tough. I just don't do that level of pain any more (after P 56 experience, and some the Daily Method, I don't want to come out of class sore all over).

Cheryl, loved your video.

Diana, glad you didn't have any bad side effects from the vaccine. Everyone is in a panic here about Covid. We have so many kids in the children's hospital sick -- more than we ever had had. Very sad.

Yesterday I did an upper body band workout from MadFit, and I added on some pushups, triceps pushups, and shoulder presses with the band. Plus we walked almost six miles again. We discovered a wonderful new part of town that was lively and colorful.

We were planning to leave on a train excursion tomorrow to other parts of Portugal to make sure of where we want to settle, but a train strike just started today. So we are going to rent a car instead. Not as fun and a little more nerve-wracking (finding our way around), but more flexible and probably safer from Covid (DD is too young for the vaccine, and I guess you can still catch Delta with the vaccine). We will have to do a Covid test before staying in most hotels (some may accept our vaccine card).

My uncle passed away yesterday from Covid. And the pastor of the church we visited here Sunday is in the hospital with it. So it has not subsided as hoped.

Cynthia, that Denise program sounds refreshing. I am looking forward to getting my weights again! Also, thank you for the kind words about my speaking voice, as I've had some people tease me about it before and I'm a little self-conscious about it!

Lynn, glad you are recovering! l decided whenever there are upright rows, I will do lateral raises instead, haha. Thank you for the kind words about the video! We don't know what we are doing with video-making, but we are learning. We watched a lot of videos like ours when we were researching our move. We are hoping we can help other people too.

Diana, I hope you love your new dishwasher. It is very inconvenient to have those kinds of issues!

Good Morning, Everyone!

I know of some young people who have the Delta variant here. They were not not vaccinated. They actually got it from a vaccinated person who has mild symptoms.

Yesterday: 1 hour outdoor walk and CS Hips and Back

Have a Blessed day and stay safe and healthy!

That Delta variant is really scary. DD plans to go to Las Vegas in 2 weeks for the star trek convention. Most of the headliners have cancelled but there's no dissuading her.

I don't think I would ever workout on a beach IRL, but today Denise and I were on Paradise Island. Sunscreen not required.

I decided to start swimming again next Monday. I won't be going on Friday, and the pass is by the month, not by the swim. DD wants to visit her grandparents, for probably the last lime. They're 97 and 96, and grandpa is having extreme health issues. DD made an appointment as it were, with the caregiver, who told her that all the vaccinated relatives have been visiting. So I offered to drive her. The visit won't last more than a half hour b/c they tire quickly. They're in San Mateo, about 90 minutes drive.

barre 3 cardio 30 minutes. Barre 3 isn't really so much barre anymore. Saw the doctor, who was very pleased with my improved range of motion in my shoulder. He thought the torture PT was helpful, and joked that they play music in the room loud to drown out the screams. At any rate we agreed that I would do one more PT session, do stretches at home for a month on my own and he thought I would probably be completely unfrozen at that point, but I would come back in a month and we would see where we were.

Cheryl, so sorry about your uncle. Hope you have a good time driving around Portugal (though definitely driving in Europe can be nerve wracking). I was very impressed with your video skills!

Diana, it is pretty scary about vaccinated people now getting Delta, along with the unvaccinated. We are all really scared about going back to teaching at the end of August.

Cynthia, that is nice of you to drive your DD to visit her grandparents. My mom is doing amazingly well BTW. She is now walking a bit and her caretaker is getting her to do all sorts of things and keeping her in great spirits. And to think that not too long ago the doctors were telling us that it wouldn't be unreasonable to just let her go (and deny her the care we gave her that kept her alive today).
