Pilates Cross Trainers--April 2021

Happy April, everyone!

My arm is still a mess, and my other arm is a mild version of the first. Sigh. I'm using the compression thingies and the ointment that was recommended. I'm going to set reminders on my phone to remind me to ice both arms a few times a day.

I've done some stepping but that's about it.

WAVES to all!

Thanks for starting us off, Brenda - I totally forgot it was a new month.

I'm sorry your arm is still bothering you. That is frustrating.

Brenda I'm sorry to hear that. My husband has had really good pain intervention with the copper compression sleeves. I'm hoping you're able to keep resting them.

Busy day on the road so just barely had time before taking off for Brooks sexy strength warmup and cooldowns with some quick kettlebell flow moves in between. Cardio later..

Happy April, everyone !

Thanks for starting a new thread, Brenda! I too forgot that it's April already.

Nothing for me today. I slept badly and woke up with a hellish headache and feeling generally tired. I still have a slight headache but it's getting better. My doctor adjusted my medication couple of days ago and I wonder if that's what caused the headache. The good news is that the new meds appear to do what they're supposed to do. I hope headaches is not a trade-off because that won't work for me.

Thank you Linda for taking a raincheck on Insanity today! Please let me know when you want to try again. I'm definitely game.

I think in April I will pull out my Physique 57 DVDs and will alternate mostly the 30 minute workouts 3 times per week and will also add cardio. I have Volumes 1 & 2 and the Express and Advanced workouts. Somehow, Karen's barre workouts made me want to get back to doing barre - at least for a month.

Waving hi to everyone!

Hi,

No workout to report yet this morning, Jessica's WS 1.0 total body is up, but I'm considering a substitute for today - there is a longer Trifecta Pilates workout I want to try and my subscription ends on Monday, so likely I will do that.

DD and I took a short walk yesterday - it was very windy and cold so we didn't go very far or long. Today we'll probably do a longer one....

I just came here to also rant about the vaccines. Maryland is just horrible. My DH is up in the next group and he is getting pressure to return to work and he doesn't want to go back w/out getting vaccinated. Before a few days ago - Thursday? - you couldn't even sign up to register to be notified to schedule an appointment until your "Phase" came up. I'm in Phase 3 - adults 16+ w/ no underlying health conditions and my Phase is available April 27th. Fortunately, I was able to register myself and DD to be notified. But, my DH is eligible so he has been registered and, get this, the mass vax site sends a text to your phone and you have 10 minutes to respond to schedule your vaccine. Well, DH missed the message on Thursday and again on Friday. Talk about frustration, you have to be glued to you phone 24X7 so you can respond to the text w/ in 10 minutes???? Anyway, last night, I couldn't sleep - nothing new there, and I found DH and appointment in a Walmart about 30 miles away for Friday. I had to scour the sites at 2:00 a.m. to get an appointment - how ridiculous is that? And how is that helpful to get people vaccinated???? It is like a full time job to search for and register for vaccines in this state. What a disappointment. And, I totally understand wanting to make it equitable and wanting to get the most vulnerable first, and all that, but honestly, the more people that are vaccinated the better and those who are most vulnerable will be protected by the widespread population of vaccinated people.

Rant over...I hate to think about what I will have to do to get myself and DD vaccinated. I guess take a week off and just hit the sites over and over again until I get lucky????

Good morning!

Donna, I feel your frustration. That's exactly how I felt few weeks ago. There was nothing available no matter how hard I tried to find an appointment for DH but then the flood gates have opened up. Keep trying and good luck to you! Our 2nd shot of Pfizer is scheduled for the 13th, so 10 days from now. I really want this to be done and over with.

I just finished Physique 57 Classic Volume 1 - 57min. It nearly killed me, but time flew and I liked it a lot. It's a hard, hard workout and it's been a while since I've done it. I will feel it by this evening for sure!

It's supposed to be 70F and sunny today. I guess that's OK although these long sunny days make me irritable. I already long for short, dark and cold days.

Waves to Carol, Linda, Brenda, Christine and Cheri!
