    Hi! Thanks so much for the affirmation. I was pleased that I got my work out in yesterday. Despite my mediocre results last week, I am determined to figure all how to get in all the important pieces of my personal puzzle, you know? It's just taking me a while to figure out how to keep up with commitments to my spouse, dogs, home, work and my own health & sanity, lol. Actually, the fact that I only got in one Resistance workout last week and got "back at it" a week later is improvement over past attempts. I have achieved enough improvement that I just can't give up. In fact, I want "more"! : )

    Hey C! Your routine sounds great! I'm so proud of you. Keep using that stability ball, and I know you will become more and more comfortable on it. You're doing so much more by using the SB and all of your little muscles, not just the big ones, are saying, "we're alive! we're alive!" I know it can be challenging to work in a workout when your job calls, but this fitness stuff is really flowing through your veins now, and when you crave the results and that oh-so-good feeling exercise leaves you with, you will squeeze it in, no problem. Soon, that routine will become easy and you'll continue to bump up your intensity and get in more sets in the same amount of time. You can do it lady. Push forward to fabulous!!

    Hello again! Ok, so I’ve done my Strength routine this evening. It took about 30 minutes, including several stretches. I did about 5 different stretches, 3 core exercise (Ball all fours Opposite Arm/Leg Raise, Ball Bridge, Face-Down Iso-Ab), Ball Chest Press 2 arm, Push up on Knees, Standing Dumbbell Cobra 2 arm, Seated Flexion Alt Arm, Ball Triceps Extensions 1 Arm, Stability Ball Squats. Right now it’s 2 sets of 12 each and I rest as little as possible between sets and exercises. Pierce and I walked this morning for about 20 minutes, but had to skip this evening due to time constraints in order to take care of household stuff and get in the resistance workout. I’m still struggling a little with time management/getting everything down now that I’m working full time, but I’m “getting there”! Take Care!

    Hi, Tami, I'm so glad you had a relaxing vacation! Thank you for checking on me. Well, I started the new Resistance program last Monday. I actually enjoyed it. Many of the exercises were a bit of a challenge. Several were on a stability ball which kicked it up a notch, lol. I started another full time assignment last week (switchboard/reception with administrative support tasks thrown in). On top of that, we had a busy, long day-trip planned for Saturday, so I had lots of extra tasks to accomplish during the week. As a result, I only got one strength training session in. Pierce and I walked about 20 minutes each morning and sneaked in another walk a few evenings. The heat and humidity (still 83 degrees at 10 PM) made it challenging to walk in the evenings. I will do better this week, I promise. I'll fill you in more on the routine a little later. I have to take care of a few things : )
