Barefoot & On the Mat: May 2022

“All things seem possible in May.”
~Edwin Way Teale~

If you are lurking, please pop in and say hello! We are fun, friendly, diverse group. We are especially fond of barefoot workouts….Pilates, yoga, barre, CS/Essentrics, Qi Gong, dance. Some of us even like to do our cardio and strength workouts sans shoes. There are no rules here, everyone is welcome! Roll out your mat, slip off your shoes, & join us!

Didn’t see a new thread so thought I’d start us off.

Today is a planned rest day as I did my marketing this morning, laundry and will do batch cooking for the week.

Pam, thank you for starting our month of May thread!

Beth
, what rotten luck for your DH's nephew to get covid 3 times! He probably had all 3 variants.

Cyana, I was always uncomfortable when bear were in our neighborhood (sometimes in our backyard!) when we lived in Alaska. We had moose in our yard all the time but they didn't frighten me like bear did.
Thank you for the wonderful YouTube music links--I enjoyed them!

Sandra, my DH loves being retired and I'm sure you will too.

Pam, thanks for starting us off! That's a nice quote.

Paine, luckily, I don't think he's been very sick any of those times. He probably has some good antibodies by now!

Speaking of which, I got my 2nd covid booster yesterday morning. By the time we went to bed last night (surprisingly, I made it through all of Amadeus), I was feeling achy and chilled, and I had a restless night. I've taken it slow today but feel mostly recovered now.

Quick fly by....haven't worked out yet and the day is getting away from me - yikes! At least I got in my breath work, meditation and stretching routine this morning.

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but YMAA sent me an email yesterday with a handful of tai chi/qi gong streaming videos for $1 (you could pick one) to celebrate World Tai Chi/Qi Gong Day, so I got Helen Liang's Tai Chi for Women. She has an interesting history - she was diagnosed with lymphoma some years ago and was advised to have a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. She decided against it and is still around and appears to be quite healthy.

Paine - I'm glad you enjoyed the video links.

Beth - Glad to hear you're feeling better today.

Must run and get some things ticked off the to do list. Waves to ALL!

Hi!

Yogapam: Thank you so much for starting us off this month! I like that quote too.

Today's Workout: The Upper Body routine from Jessica Smith's first Walk Strong set. Earlier today I walked outside for an hour.

Question -- does anyone here have any experience with Planet Fitness? I'm giving consideration to joining an inexpensive gym for some varied cardio and maybe a few of the strength machines.

Beth: When my niece and grandniece got Covid earlier this year (it was my niece's second time!) they both felt pretty sick for about one day, then much better after that.

Waving to all!

Todays workouts:
~Qi Gong 30 day challenge: day 1
~BellyFit Rising Creativity
~Strength circuit day 1
~Long stretch & yin poses

Sandra - I havenít gone to a gym in decades so I have no opinion to offer.

Beth - Sounds like the booster wasnít too bad. I hope to get mine next month.

Paine - Iíd freak if a bear strolled through my yard! We do have the occasional bear or cougar sighting around here as we are semi rural, but Iíve never seen them myself. Cougars are the main reason I donít walk in the trail system alone.

Cyana - Enjoy your new video!

Waves to all!

Pam, thank you for starting us. Did you post about the cougar in April? I'll have to go back and look. They're so beautiful but I don't want to meet very closely.

Paine - now bears - I don't think so!!! Did you see grizzlies or "just" black bears? We are getting a lot of black bear sightings in towns that are set back closer to the woods - they're after bird feeders apparently. The moose must have left some pretty big "presents."

Sandra, I'm a Planet Fitness girl. It all depends on your club. My old one was a smelly pit but the new one is big and beautiful, and I love working out there.

Margot, thanks for mentioning that the new Bellyfits are excerpts from a larger package. That makes them more appealing to me.

Waves to all!

Pat, I love how you never mince words (e.g., the old PF being a "smelly pit"). On my in-office days I get up at 6:20 a.m., and that's still way early for me.

Sandra, I had a friend who belonged to a local PF but decided to quit. I think she may have had some trouble getting her money back - it could be worth checking out their policies on that.

Pam, wow about the cougar sightings!

Margot & Pam, yes, my 2nd booster reaction was pretty similar to the first - i.e., one comfortable night, feeling flu-ish for the first part of the next day, and then fine.

cyana, I just went back to the old thread to find your links. Thanks for sharing - I love American Pie (the song and the album). You should have joined in the singing!

Speaking of the American Pie album, Don McClean's song "Vincent" was on the playlist for Van Gogh Yoga last week - in fact, that son probably first made me aware of Vincent Van Gogh! Also, I don't remember if we discussed this story when it happened:

Good morning! Yesterday featured:

~ LWR Feel Amazing Challenge W1D1
~ Lee Holden 30 Day Challenge - Day 2
~ Bellyfit TV Season 1 - Grounding
~ 8,831 steps

I might buy myself the new Bellyfit spring package for my birthday. It's a little pricey, even on sale for $40, but the clips look like a lot of fun and they're 20 minutes long.

Beth, 6:20 sounds like a luxury! I forgot about the song Vincent. Long time ago.

Good morning to all!

Pat, if you think you would use the set, $40 seems reasonable for a b-day gift to self.

Happy Tuesday!
