Every day in February - the year is moving - so are WE! Join us, we'd love it!!



Welcome to the "Every Day Check-In"

GROUP
Lately, we've been an awesome foursome but we all love it when newcomers pop in, and even better when they stay.
If you've been hunting for a checkin (a new one, another one, your first one....) - give us a try!

WORKOUTS
We don't focus on any kind of workouts, just daily activity. Something is always better than nothing - there's no pressure to lift or sweat in particular. The focus is to do something related to exercise EVERY DAY.

POSTS
Anything goes - a simple list of what you've done for the day/week (drive-by posts) through to daily essays that include workouts, life, loves, laughs, and venting are ALL OK.


LEXICON
  • WERD = Well-earned rest day (when your body says to pause, listen)
  • TERD = Totally expected rest day (planned rest, life events, ....)
  • TURD = Totally unexpected rest day (emphasis on singular, but stuff happens y’know?)
  • HERD of TURDS. Usually declared after the 3rd TURD in a row. Physical and mental health are always better with daily movement - be good to yourself and shift that herd!

Helen - thank you for starting us off once again!

2/1 - dog walk
Star Trainer's Strength Espresso w/ Gay Gasper, 20 min.
Up to the Beat's 30 Min. Dance & HIIT Workout
plank (need to be more consistent, as I didn't last as long today)

I really need to figure out a rotation or at least something to focus on for the month.

I finished up my January jump rope challenge yesterday. I did 21 workouts in only 10 days, but they weren't consecutive. But I figured my body could use an easy day today so all I did was day 8 of Yoga with Adriene's Center challenge. It worked out great bc today was Melt so it was gentle and restorative.

• Oh, it's been SO long since I did a Gay Gasper!
• Gina's Up To The Beat workouts were unfamiliar - just spent some time poking through them - not bad at all!!
• There's not WAY I would have done a workout last night after finishing school-work, UNLESS I had a rotation to follow, and two other people following it WITH me. Even a map of KINDS of things to do, and maybe a minimum duration for them? Would that help?

VANNIE
Well done for sticking it out to get the jump-rope challenge done!
Doing a Yoga With Adriene COUNTS!

CLEDA
You need your arrow, and we need YOU!!

Wed-1-Feb
60min, walk, with school, easy pace as it was SO HOT!
30min, dog walk, around dusk, too hot for her any earlier
56min, Cathe - STS - Meso 1 - Week 1 - 02 Back & Triceps

I was stupid and did my school-work first, and the workout after it was done -so finished the workout at 11:30pm, then pack up, then shower....

If was 99F at home-time today, so even hotter in the middle of the day.
As soon as I got home, had a cool shower. Dragged Alice in with me and completely soaked her too. On the staff-rooms have A/C, not the class-rooms.

Helen: So sweet - and You are so right!!! I came to get my arrow. (That's not true! I came to post and forgot it's February, read your post and your shout out and thought Hmmmm. She's right! I NEED my arrow. So here I am!)

Even 99 degrees is a bit too warm for me. and I like the summer/heat!

I also know what you mean about meeting a friend. Tuesday (Still Jan. have to go back and post in that thread) After work, I met Daphne on the bike and we did Jenn Sherman's Billy joel ride. She told me awhile ago she wanted to do it and I like that ride. We had a great time! And I should do it more often. I don't bail after work if I'm meeting someone (even if it's virtually!)

Vantreesta: I applaud you for the challenge. I never started with a regular rope. Just went straight to the weighted ropes. I still say - it's a tough workout. I should probably start with a non weighted rope. I'm guessing it would be eaiser. You earned a nice gentle day for sure.

Lili: I know what you mean about planks. Use it or lose it!

2/1/2023: Rowing 15 mins.


Not a long workout, but it counts and I needed a slowish day. I came home from work, sat on the couch and fell asleep. Got up from the couch and went to bed, so obviously? I was tired! Sleep is important also.

The commit to fit challenge (rowing) on Hydrow has begun, which is my focus for Feb. Rowing and boxing with whatever else thrown in there. Should be a nice month of variety!!!

Have a great day.

YAY! Cleda's here!

Thu-2
45min, dog walk
That was it - just too stinking hot to do anything else, BUT it's Friday morning, and MUCH cooler (I'm even wearing a cardigan!) so hoping to do last night's scheduled MMA - Boxing when I get home, then walk Alice, and do STS - Legs in the usual time-slot of 7:30.
