Happy New Year, everyone! It's so great to see some of you that had a little (or a BIG) hiatus since you've joined us!!! Good luck to you this month and getting back in the groove!

Jane, I see you've re-joined Yvette Fit! I could've written your post about your Left Foot heel pain! I have the same issue....maybe mine is plantar fasciitis too?? I'm pretty sure mine stemmed from doing the Elliptical so much and that repetitive action over and over. Now I'm scared to get back on the thing again, LOL! I keep trying to remember to use the roller and occasionally ice my foot but you know how that goes! Heather's weight workouts sound awesome and I may be trying them myself. Great to see you back! Hope everyone is doing well with your family and your little sweetie, Wesley.


Liz, WELCOME!!! So happy to see new faces around here! There are lots of Cathe fans in this group - I'm sure you'll fit right in!! I'm pretty sure no one can out-talk me, LOL, so there you have it! No pressure either about chatting...do what works for you!

T2B, congrats on the mother lode you racked up by paying yourself to workout!! What are you going to do with all that $800+ cash???

ASAS, I received my "Holy HiiT" t-shirt - it's cute!! Fits well but I was reading the reviews before I bought it and they said to size up a size. I'm glad I did! But, the quality isn't the best ...it seems the letters aren't on there too great - I will not put it in the dryer...line dry for sure. The purple is so pretty, though! Can't wait to wear it when I do a HiiT workout next! :0)

April, how did your DH fare with his surgery? Good luck in logging the workouts again and going thru your DVD's. So happy to see you back!

Elsie, when is the big move? You know what I'm going to say....don't worry about the workouts during this time! I know you'll be busy!

~~~WAVES~~~ to everyone and wishing us all a wonderful January!

Oh, if I didn't have my workouts, I would certainly cave to the pressure!! The Big Move from the west coast to the far east coast is the end of March-April. We did a smaller local move last July, which helped somewhat to whittle things down (mainly DH's father's things who was a hoarder).
Oh I do wish I would have gotten that dvd of Cathe's ... Perfect 30 Pump, but hey, you can't get them all at once!!
It's excellent to have you here again Helen! Get well soon!

Thumbs up

I'm joining late, but I've been doing some daily workouts. While I don't yet have a formal plan, I'm trying to do a little something every day, switching back and forth between cardio and/or strength workouts, plus ankle p.t. and stretching. (The indicates a workout I enjoyed and will probably repeat.)

1. Dr. Kristie Ennis (on Youtube) 5-minute Every Day workout, ankle p.t., my own stretching.
2. Brand Fitness 3000-Step Rockin' Classics Walking Workout (YT) , ankle p.t., my own stretching
3. Jessica Smith (YT) 1-Mile Lower Body Circuit Walk , ankle p.t., my own stretching
4. Jessica Smith (YT) 1-Mile Upper Body Circuit Walk , ankle p.t., J. Smith Post-Workout Stretch (YT)
5. Unplanned off-day. Feeling blue for various reasons. Ankle p.t. and stretching only.
6. Another off-day. (See Day 5). Ankle p.t. only
7. 15 minutes of dancing with one of the Brand Fitness (YT) walking workouts, ankle p.t., my own stretchout
8. Ugh. I didn't even complete my ankle p.t. today. But I did meet my weekly step, calorie, and active minute goals on my Fitbit, so that's something at least.
9. Jessica Smith 10-Minute Mix Steppin' Strength, Abs and Arms, Buns and Thighs, plus Chair Stretch; ankle p.t.
10. Brand Fitness Walking Workout (same as Jan. 2); ankle p.t.; my own full-body stretch (10,000 steps today! )
11. Another unplanned rest day. I did ankle p.t. only.
12. Jessica Smith 1-Mile Lower Body Circuit Walk; ankle p.t.; back p.t. (abs!); full-body stretch on my own
13. Jessica Smith Quick Low Impact Cardio (YT) ; JS Tank Top Arms (YT) ; ankle p.t.; stretch on my own
14. About 3500 steps (a little over 30 minutes) of one of the Brand Fitness Walking workouts (Bad Boys, I think, the name of it--LOL); abs/core on my own; ankle p.t.; stretching on my own
15. 20 Minute YT walk with Jessica Smith (Peanut is especially cute in this one!); 15-min. Lower Body w/o for Strong Knees (also JS); ankle p.t.; extra lower body strength exercises on my own; stretch on my own
16. Jessica Smith 2-Mile Flat Abs Walk (DVD); upper body workout, core, and stretch on my own
17. Feeling blue today so just did ankle p.t., Full Body Gentle Flow 20-min. Supine Practice (yoginimelbourne on YT), and some stretching on my own.

So this morning I did a 30 min AMT session. But then the snow came, and I wound up doing lots of shoveling, snowblowing, and chainsawing a fallen tree. I am sore as hell. Feels good

And of course, tomorrow is my first day back at work after 10 days of "relaxing"....

Waves to all,
CabC

48min, Les Mills Body Jam 23
30min dog walk
35min, Adriene Mishler - 30 days of Yoga 2015 - day 01 Ease Into It

CAB
That's quite a bit of functional fitness! Don't doubt you're BOTH sore AND feeling good about it.

AnMrsDe I did sign back up for Yvette but only for a month because Iím worried about jumping on my foot. I definitely have plantar fasciitis, Iíve had it before. This time Iím wondering if itís calf related or if itís from work. I donít wear heels at all but I walk a lot at work and I just think itís the floor at work + dress shoes. Iíve been using a small massage ball on my arch. I havenít seen sweet Wesley since Christmas Eve!! We were quarantined last week!! My husband had a mild case of Covid that heís recovering from. I tested negative and have no symptoms but I have to retest tomorrow. Thankfully weíre both boosted. How is your mom doing? I know it must be hard for her and for you too! I was so worried about my dad after my mom passed away but he really branched out and had a good social life.

TB2 Iíve watched a lot of TV!! My picks??? Ted Lasso, Succession, and WandaVisision.

ASAS I really like the essentrics dvds I have but I always struggle to fit them in. I really like the music and vibe of the one in that loft space. Itís a great workout!!

Cab What a storm out of nowhere!! 60 degrees Sunday night and we got about a foot of snow today!!

Luv2WO Glad to see you back! I missed seeing your workouts!

Elsie Thatís quite a move! Iím an East coast girl but Iíve always dreamed of visiting BC!!! Have you lived on both coasts? Iím sure itís quite a cultural difference.

Allgirlsinaz I know how that change in your work schedule can mess with you. I feel like Iím still recovering from the overnights I did last year. Itís hard!!

A very warm welcome to Liz and Sollamyn!!! Glad to see you back Helen!!!


Jane

WELCOME, Sollamyn! Great to see you here!

Elsie, well it's good you're at least starting early getting things underway for the move! It sounds like you're making good progress. I know exactly what you mean about getting in the workouts during stressful times...

Jane, I hope your DH gets better soon and you stay healthy and your foot gets better! Not fun not being able to see your baby!!//So did you have to do all the shoveling of the foot of snow then, if your DH is recovering??//My mom is coping pretty well...before all this happened, she sent out lots of Christmas cards, and in return, has received TONS of both Christmas cards and sympathy cards...I should count them...bet there's at least 100+ combined! They have lots of friends from church that they stay in contact with which is very helpful at this time in particular. I'm very thankful for them. And the caregiver, I think, helps in passing the time and doing her chores for her...she now has basically the same one and has grown to like having her around or at least has gotten used to the idea! Thanks for asking.

Cab, good luck going back to work! At least you could get out of your driveway easliy this morning!

Waves~~

Thanks for asking! His ACL reconstruction surgery went well. They gave him a nerve block and he hasn't had any pain even after that wore off. The PT thinks it's because there was so much trauma to the knee in the year before the surgery. He's been great about doing his PT exercises so hopefully he can return to normal activities after patiently allowing the area to heal. The hard part is just staying away from his favorite activities for so long.

Still keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Tuesday 4th
start the day IN the gym (after coffee), as the no-dread gets me UP there. Once I've been up there for the day, I'm more inclined to return.
33min, Tim Senesi - 30 Day Yoga Challenge - Day 02
after something otherwise productive, time for ME again
40min, Rebecca Small - Steppin' Out Tour - Intermediate Step
afternoon, putzed around, THOUGHT about a few things I could do... until someone put a paw on my knee -
60min, walk/play/training with Alice
evening, did some of the things I thought about earlier, until
33min, Adriene Mishler - 30 Days of Yoga 2015 - Day 02 Stretch & Soothe

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
