ASAS - glad you were able to see someone for your eye and that it’s getting better.

19. BOSS BANDS: Total Body Timesaver #2 Upper Body, 46mins + TURBO FIRE: Stretch 10 Class (virgin). Well actually, Stretch 10 is 12:27. Lol. I really liked it and can see myself using it a lot. . Boss Bands Timesaver 2 still has a at least 10 mins of lower body work so this makes the perfect timesaver to get the flavor of the full workout. The back, bicep & triceps segments are really good. Jen is extra hammy in the biceps section.

T2B, thank you! I am glad too, I was getting worry about it.

3-in-1 Total Body Fitness with Desi Bartlett (dust bunny) it has three 20 minutes or so workouts, I did all three for the first time, I'd usually do cardio or strength plus the flexibility segment. They are filmed outside near the beach.

8.) Cardio. The cardio is nice and fun, kind of a Leslie walk in intensity, but with more interesting choreography, I kept everything low impact, there were a little hop here and there, that would make it a bit more "intense".

9.) Strength. This one is nice too, for a light day workout, first circuit she did several exercises for the lower body, next upper body, she then combined both, then second circuit, similar pattern sometimes, there was quite a bit of triceps work, at the end she combines everything together from the top.

10.) Flexibility. I like this one too, it is relaxing, she uses a towel for some stretches, I used a stretch strap instead.

Sugar, how'd I miss the part about your eye?? I'm so sorry you've been dealing with that.

Cate I have Shoulder Shape Up also and it's a virgin for me too. I've got to check it out now.

Day 14 (Friday) - Firm Total Body Toner. Dust bunny. This wasn't a bad workout. It covered all areas, and the reps weren't too high. This just isn't the kind of workout that I want to do anymore. I felt that there weren't enough reps and sets for me to get stronger, which is my ultimate goal.


I think I'm going to start taking off the weekends, at least for awhile. I've been going hard 6 days a week for so long, and I have been dreading my workouts. I think if I dedicate the weekends to just rest or yoga then I'll spark some more joy into my workouts. I mean, once I start working out I look forward to it, but it's just the getting started that's been hard. However, last weekend when I took the whole weekend off I felt so much better when I tackled my workout on Monday. We'll see how it goes. It's been years that I have only worked out five days a week.

Hey, guys! I've been a bum this wknd but did spend a lot of yesterday outside walking around at a tractor show and flea market with my hubby and father-in-law. Gorgeous day for it and I bought a cool ring made from a sugar spoon and a wire scorpion to be friends with the one I already have.

ASAS, I already have like 9 spiders, I think, on the web but I made 3 more that still need eyes. Hoping to finish those tmrw and post.

Katie, thanks! You know me, Halloween celebration can't start too early and no such thing as too much!

Bubbles, I think taking wknds off sounds like a good plan. You can always do smthg spontaneously (like Misty!) if the mood grabs you but not feeling obligated can be very freeing.

T2B, I misunderstood when you said you were putting TF10 on your list. I'm glad you already had it and didn't have to acquire it! Yeah, just over 12 minutes instead of 10. If the workout doesn't match the time they say I always wish they wouldn't put the time in the title! So misleading.

So last night I laid out a workout plan for the next 4 weeks and then realized I was planning for October and didn't include the Halloween workouts I have planned so I may just have to start over since I plan too much all the time anyway. Argh. Good thing I love planning!

Vannie, the tractor show and flea market sounds like fun. BTW, love the profile photo of Cyric on TF.

Bubbles, I'll be interested to know what you think of Shoulder Shape Up. Do you have any other Jill dvd's?

This evening, I did Day 6 dust bunny, Gilad Quick Fix Shoulders and Arms. It is one of two VHS I still own from back in the day. Actually my first workout purchase ever and from vintage Collage. I really like it and used to do all the time. I hope they've made it into dvd version because when I rewound it, the VHS player messed it up at the end. I had to rewind the very last part by hand. Not sure if it will play again but if not, it sure has lasted a long time.

ASAS, glad your eye is doing better.

Bubbles & Cate, thank you!

Vantreesta, you are not kidding with those spiders!

Today's workout was Leslie's The Tone Every Zone Walk (dust bunny). I did all three, I think it is the first time I do them all together. 11.) Upper Body, 12.) Lower Body, 13.) Fast walk + Short Stretch (my own).

Waves to all!

ASAS, great accomplishment on the Leslie workouts.

For Day 7, I did dust bunny Ellen Barrett's Slim Sculpt. This was a fav Ellen of mine and then I got out of habit of using dvd's. I still like this one and will try to keep it out of "dust bunny" status.

Cate, thanks! That Ellen Barrett's workout you did yesterday looks fabulous! Are you streaming now these days, instead of using DVDs?
