Today I put two shorter Cathe Live cardio hiit workouts. SWEATY!

140 Low Impact Cardio HiiT and 247 Time to HiiT Low Impact.
Both excellent together. Both use light weights just to amp up the cardio so I used 5s.
Some of the moves were similar between the two but really a good combination. I liked 247 the best.

No appointments at all this week thank goodness so 5 days of workouts and Yoga. YAY!

Enjoy your appointment-free week, Kate!

Since I am on a Covidcation, I have been doing a few fun, low-key activities. Yesterday I finished up the paint-by-numbers project I started in the summer. I might do a few more touch-ups to it. Not sure if I will get it framed or not? My daughter is an amazing artist and I plan to frame some of her pieces, which are far superior to mine, LOL. I also have a miniature greenhouse kit and I am going to check it out today.

I have been playing a 3D puzzle game on the VR headset called Puzzling Places. I can play it seated and it is really immersive.

I've been listening to some podcasts for a wellness challenge at school. Basically, we get a list of 10 different items to complete every couple of months and if we finish 6 of them we get a $75 gift card. I have already received one gift card this school year and am close to completing the work for the second one. It is a great incentive!

Yesterday I did "Letting Go" from Yoga Detox 30. It is a yin class led by Travis. There were a couple of challenging poses in the beginning - he does the dreaded dragon - but very relaxing poses in the end. I will do this one again. The next class on the Detox schedule is "Potential" led by Lauren. I will give it a shot and try to keep an open mind.

I am feeling almost back to normal - just have a little sinus congestion and some stomach issues. My son was the sickest out of all of us with a headache, fever, rapid heart rate, cough and congestion, but he is pretty much healed. My husband has the dry, hacking cough plus loss of taste/smell. We think my daughter must have been the first of us to get sick. Her symptoms were a sore throat, fatigue and a headache. I think she caught it when we went to see Spiderman at the movie theater and had dinner out after. It is hard to know for sure, but she has tested negative all week. I think the fact that we are all vaccinated contributed to our mild symptoms, but it didn't stop us from catching the virus. Of course, it is running rampant in our schools now, so it is pretty hard to avoid.

Jules, Covid is running rampant in MN. My younger son, DIL and both my grandkids currently have covid. The adults had worse symptoms than the kids do, thankfully. Everyone was vaccinated too, but hopefully that prevented hospitalization. Scary!!

I LOVE Dragon pose!

Today is Justin's 39th birthday. He's out with his girlfriend and won $200 with a lottery ticket! Nice! I am very grateful he got through the last year!

Today I did Live #4 Cardio & Weights. I don't really remember if this is like her Cardio & Weights DVD but it was a lot more fun and challenging than I expected. Anytime I see "compound" moves, I cringe a little but this was really fun and lots of energy!

Hugs to all! Stay well!

Jules itís great youíre making the best of your time home. Lots of fun things! Covid is going crazy where I live too. It seems like every day we have another positive case at work. Iím very relieved that symptoms with Omicron seem to be less severe.

Kate, thanks for starting the new thread for 2022. Oh, dragon pose. Iím with Jules. I find that pose difficult to hold. I need to use blocks and I still really feel it in my shoulders. I realize itís a groin opener but the stress in my shoulders is what I find unpleasant. Good for you, Kate! Happy Birthday to Justin!

Hey Malinda and Linda. Hope you are both well.

Today I did a new workout. Ilariaís Kickboxing 7. I like Ilariaís workouts but I have to be in the mood for them with all the repetition. Sometimes itís sort of meditative and sometimes it drives me crazy. This one seemed harder than her other kickboxing workouts. The combinations seemed a little blah too. I think I like other offerings from her more.

Hope everyone is having a good night.

Dang tough workout today.
Cathe Live #8 High Interval Cardio Step plus #126 Timesaver Step Grooves. #8 is great! But tough! Easy choreo but almost all higher impact blasts. Was really good, challenging and I was literally dripping!
#126 I didn't like as much because it had more choreography and I fumbled a few times. Not to mention about halfway through I just stopped and did the cooldown and stretch. WHEW! Tired and didn't feel like fumbling anymore.

Kim: I like Ilaria but sometimes just can't stand the repetition. I like her older stuff too.

Getting ready for some Yin yoga today. I've been going through several of Rudy Mettia's practices on udaya and he has a couple very nice Yin practices. I need it today! Step workouts slay my legs and butt!

HUGS
