TGIF!!!

I feel like I need to channel Rip Van Winkle and sleep for about 20 years, but then I'd miss my time off next week!!

Waves to ALL - will try to catch up with everyone over the week-end.

cyana, TGIF back at you! I'm dragging too, although probably not as much as you. I feel very lucky that after just 1 more week, I have 2 months to catch up on sleep!

Good morning everyone! Kept it low key yesterday - the DOMS in my quads from Cee's pistol squats reached epic proportions. After work I kept rubbing them with arnica and rested with a heating pad over my lap, tea and a book. In the morning I managed:

~ Kassandra Yin Yoga & Affirmations for Health
~ Lee Holden 30 Day Challenge - Day 19
~ 3,737 gimps for the day

My DH is really cute. I told him about the 40-4-40 plan and he told me "But you need a 6 minutes for 60 year old plan."

Cyana, I hope you get some rest.

Pam, enjoy your new set. PT totally gets boring. Speaking of digital toys I treated myself to the Bellyfit spring bundle AND started subscribing with Ellen.

Sandra, you enjoy your new Jessicas too!

Good morning Beth, Paine, Margot, Carolyn and anyone who visits!

Fitness Becomes You (Volume 1, Program C: Upper Body workout; Volume 2 Program C: Lower Body workout)

I had a good workout with Margaret this morning!

Sandra, I also bought Jessica's Stretch & Relax DVD. I'll be interested in hearing how you like Jessica's Split Strength DVD once you have tried it.

Pam, I look forward to hearing what you think about Jessica's new set!

Cyana, you're going to love your week off work!

Pat, pistol squats are HARD!! I can't do them.
I hope you love your new Bellyfit spring bundle.

Sandra, Margot, & Carolyn - I look forward to comparing notes with you on Jessica’s new workouts!

Paine - I googled pistol squats, my knees would protest loudly, yikes!

Pat - Enjoy your new BF purchases! I like to do a month of Ellen here and there, she’s so likable and her workouts are accessible.

Beth - Are you moving to a new office or just shutting down for the summer?

Waves to all!

I just got back from a neighborhood walk with my 3 year old grandson. He is identifying more flowers and trees on our walk.

Margot, I found out that Season 2 of Reacher will be on the book Bad Luck and Trouble by Lee Child. I already read that book but I might re-read it to have it fresher in my mind. I like to see how the movie is different from what I envisioned in the book.

Pat, it's a rare occasion when I attempt a pistol squat.

Pam, it's both! I am scheduled to move offices (returning to the main health and counseling building) on Monday, and then Friday is my last day before my 2 months annual leave. I think I will be returning to a mess in August!

We are actually going to start an educational TikTok account for students. There's nothing on it yet, but it will be here (we filmed a short video today that I am in):
