Hi Everyone,

Catching up with workouts:

Friday - I did a bunch of Gina B's 1 song workouts strung together. I did a warm-up, 2 lower body workouts, 2 upper and a cool down.

Saturday - Leslie - 20 Min Fast Walk from Tone Every Zone & Jessica Valent - Mindful Movement Full Body Pilates Workout

Sunday - Yoga w/ Bird - 7 Day Yoga Challenge Day 1 - which was a 5 min morning yoga, Ellen - 4 Elements Flow, and I added on another Yoga w/ Bird - 10 Min Morning Yoga Miracle

I think my friend in NY has COVID - I was talking to her Friday and she was coughing and said it felt like an elephant was sitting on her chest. That is exactly what a co-worker said when she had it....

Thanks for starting us off on a new thread, Dana!

Hope everyone has a good day!

Someone please talk me out of re-subscribing to Pilates by Lisa!

I was a member for probably 2-3 years, and then I cancelled my membership 3 years ago so that I can try other instructors. For the past 6 months or so, I again started receiving weekly emails from Lisa and she's made some significant changes to her website since I was last a member. I really like what I see and I'm SO tempted to sign up again. Problem is that her membership is expensive, but in fairness it's not any more so than some of the other instructors. It's 24.99/month or 249.99/annual. I can pay it, but I'm also frugal (my dh calls me cheap! ) and it doesn't sit well with me to pay that much for streaming.

I'm cancelling 2 subscriptions this month, and one in Oct and another one in November. I got them all at a deep discount. I think that at the very least I should probably wait until the end of the year and start with clean slate and re-subscribe in Jan 2023. It makes sense, right? Of course, there are so many great free pilates classes on YouTube......what to do.

Today's workout was

Be Healthy Enough - Basic Strength - 30 minutes

Basically pairings of exercises, done with 3 rounds of 30 seconds each. I am getting so weak as I age! Very discouraging!

Dana - LOL! Asking for us to talk you out of re-subscribing to Pilates by Lisa is like asking an alcoholic to explain to you why drinking is bad for your health. I'm interested in the changes that Lisa has made to her site. It is pricey, but there's a ton of content, some beautiful scenery, etc.

Donna - Nice workouts! I think I'm going to stick with Amy's stuff for a while; my flirtation with Jessica is over for the moment.

Happy "Moan" day!

Today's workouts, so far:

Lucy Wyndham Read - 20 Min Cardio (May 28 Day Challenge, Day 1)
Jessica Valent Pilates - Beginner Lower Body Workout # 1
Yoga w/ Bird - 7 Day Yoga Challenge Day # 2

Going to attempt Lucy's 28 day challenge this month - her workouts are simple but I think they are effective and easy to add on to since they tend to be short.

Jessica V is doing a 3 week "strong" challenge which I'm going to throw into the mix as well. Today was just a basic lower body routine - squats, lunges, deadlifts and step ups - 2 sets of each.

Yoga w/ Bird was a nice way to end it this morning.

Planning for a walk and/or Essentrics later.

I was considering cancelling my ETV subscription for now and just focusing on the CS DVDs I have at home. I do love the Live workouts, but I'm focusing on other workouts right now and the length of time of a CS episode is perfect for an add on.

Dana - I agree with Carol - we are not the crowd to talk you out of a purchase! LOL! And honestly that price is not obscene all things considered.

Carol - I'm doing some Jessica Valent this week - getting back to the basics with her "Strong" challenge. I liked what I saw of Amy's workouts. I am also noticing that I'm losing strength and mobility. Gotta keep fighting to preserve what I can....

My friend tested negative for COVID but her DH tested positive - they have the same symptoms so I'm thinking that one of those tests is wrong. The worst part is her DH is undergoing cancer treatments, so it is not good for him to be sick w/ COVID particularly since they have to suspend his treatment.

Hopefully he'll get better quickly, they are giving him the antiviral and she says he just feels like he has a bad head cold.


On that note...hope everyone has an uneventful Monday.

Happy Monday!

Dana, that seems like a lot for streaming, but if you would use it a lot it might be worth it. I don't think we're working that hard to talk you out of it...

I'm not sure if I'm going to get to a workout today or not. We've been helping a friend clean out her parent's house and it is SO dusty! My not-quite-recovered-from-Covid body and respiratory system is complaining this morning.
