Umpqua on 07/20/2012:
You are a plank master my friend! You know, I used to be able to side plank something fierce when I was doing yoga regularly. Then during Brazil I got weaker in this area (although maybe I was building other muscles?) I'm thinking it's more of a balance thing - if I don't have to work as hard on the balance I can hold the pose longer. Anywho, I'm hoping to improve in this area once again with regular yoga. Enjoy your day!

supercheese on 07/20/2012:
Good morning!!

liza36 on 07/20/2012:
Oh my, didn't know there was such a thing as plank punches! I'm just learning to do regular planks, actually modified ones. Have a fantastic day, my friend!

Good Morning Ladies Just finished up my Max Recovery class got through the pushup marathon better this time since I knew what to expect, still had to go to my knees for the side plank to pushup move for the last round..The ab work at the end helped ease some of the cramping from TOM that made it's arrival yesterday...

The sun made it's appearance this morning! Yayyyy I am hoping for a rain free aftenoon and it looks really promising right now.. Well I better keep it moving so I will chat with you all later, have a good day

Hey first day back at the helm of my bar..It didn't take long for the temps to soar after the unexpected "cold snap"(not really but for Florida standards in July it was, LOL) It was a pretty slow day but it beats being inside or bored to tears so I won't complain..

So I was feeling a little sore and I got in the second portion of YogaX  for the extra stretch.Now I am off to see what's up with you guys and get some fuel, extra hungry..Have a good evening all

A pushup marathon sounds brutal! I can barely do them. I was just thinking on my way to work today how I should start doing pushups at home on my own, every day. It's a real challenge at the gym whenver the trainer has me do them. I'd love to get better at it...and by that I mean being able to do 5 pushups! No marathon for me!

Umpqua on 07/19/2012:
Yay for sunshine and not having to deal with the slugs inside ;) Have a good one!

Ouch, I am hurting today! I think the last couple of weeks have caught up to me LOL. Glad you got your social interaction quota yesterday, even though you were in the middle of a whine fest! Too funny! It gets bad here at work too; only a couple of guys work in our office group, so it's only a matter of time before the girls start bickering between themselves!

selina on 07/19/2012:
I see that estrogen fest you talk about when I go to a slow day at a restaurant, sometimes. Also, the other day, at the pt clinic, when I was the only client...

You are always so full of energy! I love it!

Good Morning Ladies  Man it rained all night again, not like Monday/Tuesday..No interruptions in sleep so that was a plus.. I got my Max plyo class in currently waiting to stop sweating profusely...Great workout!! Not so great that it is raining like crazy here  Dare I say that I hope that they need me to work inside, if not at least go in, pick up my check and get a little social interaction..Yep that is how bored I am..LOL   I am off to get cleaned up, catch up with you all later, have a Happy Healthy Day

Hey back from my day..I def got my fair share of social interation today..When I got the call to come in to work inside, I was elated..I went in early as I do for my outside bar shifts and it was cool just to chat it up with the kitchen guys..When the rest of the floor staff arrived, I was slightly disappointed that it was an Estrogen fest and MAN the nitpicky incessant chatter doesn't stop.. Not to sound insensitive but I am used to working with 1 or 2 others tops(most of the time it is a guy) so this is something I am not very familiar with...After we opened, I steered clear of the gab/whine fest and hung out with my customers.. Upon my arrival home, I added a Cardio Ab class.. I am going to check in with you all and get some fuel..Hope your day was a good one!

Hahaha I love your comment on my post-- my boobs definitely went first, too. But since I didn't have much to begin with, I can't say I'm too dissapointed. lol. Wedding planning is going OK, we have a hall, a church, and a DJ. We REALLY need to get on getting a photographer but I'm SO picky when it comes to pictures that I think I will have a hard time with that. My goal is to do it before Labor Day! How is everything with you???

"You can Frickin DO IT!!!!!!!!!!"  Shaun T

Good Morning Ladies  After watching American Ninja Warrior last night really fired up from yelling at the TV like a psycho a little concerned about falling asleep shortly afterwards, it did take a while to settle in..I slept well that was until the storm that rolled through around 3 am It was some fierce lightning  really close by and the thunder shook the windows.. This lasted for almost 2 hours..I did manage to sneak in a little more sleep between the severe stuff..I completed my Max Interval class on schedule.. Pumped up now.. I repped out alot more Suicide side oblique moves as well as the plank punches..

I am checking out the forecast for this afternoon and it really doesn't look promising..Right now it is dry and the sun is trying to peek out through the clouds but there are some storms brewing out in the gulf... I still have to get prepped just in case.. Have a good day all

Hey all back from a very boring day..LOL  It didn't rain nearly as bad as expected, in hindsight we could have actually opened the bar but as "Ole Blue Eyes" sings "That's Life"  Determined not to let the television entertain me all day, I got out for a bit, knocked out a few more crossword puzzles(almost caught up from last week), had a tiny cat nap before doing a Yoga class that Skip Jennings(from ChaLEAN Extreme videos) posted a couple a days ago..It is a 20 minute class that was quick, straight to the point, more importantly will not effect my performance of my Max Plyo class tomorrow..I really needed that extended stretch, worked out alot of kinks..I will def add this more during the week since I need to stretch out the muscles more..Flexibility prevents injury and eases soreness a bit!  Off to catch up with you all and get some fuel..

I can picture you yelling at the TV! RYC - not sure what he is planning to do since, as he put it the surprise factor is tough in this case as it's the worst kept secret in town. It's been leaked by Will's sisters, friends and even (by accident) the jewelrer who sold Will the stone for the ring (he's a friend). They are going out to dinner at a nice restaurant tomorrow night for her birthday and then they are going to NC for a couple of days in a week or so - so I guess it could be either time. ;)

grannyannie on 07/17/2012:
Like Shaun T's quote. :-) Your workouts sound so amazing! Have a fabulous day, V!

RYC so far, so good!

" Twenty years ago this month. I was thirty four years old. Math! Anyway, I just wanted you all to know that consistency is more important than temporary weight loss. Variety is essential for preventing injury, boredom and plateaus. Intensity helps you get better over time. Purpose gives you a "reason why" that changes you for the better. A Plan and accountability eliminates excuses. This is how you create a healthy lifestyle in my opinion. It has worked for me for 20 plus years and it will work for you too."  Tony Horton

Good Morning Ladies Got my Max Cardio Conditioning class completed bright and early this morning..It was a good sweaty one, I pushed through some of the tougher drills like the football sprint to low plank hold and got in a few more reps than last week...Anyhoo now that I am officially fired up, I better keep the momentum and get the chores out the way so I can enjoy the rest of my day..Hope you all have a happy, healthy start to your week

Hey back from my day..Actually I never left the house today, it was hella stormy all morning thru late afternoon.. I wasn't really feeling the whole laundry thing anyways...LOL  It was ashamed to waste all my energy pacing from boredom.. I finally accepted the fact that as long as it was lightning like crazy, I was def staying put.. I did a little cleaning around the house (YAWN), caught up with last week's pile of crossword puzzles from the paper and Checked out "The Rose"(Bette Midler)..Although I have seen this movie more than a few times, I always hope for a different ending...LOL

Anyhoo I got this week's meals made, bagged and tagged, and added a Cardio Abs class.. Off to check out how your day went, get some fuel before American Ninja Warrior tonight!! WOOHOOT!  have a good evening!

There for a moment I thought you were telling us your age! hahahahaha! Seriously that is a terrific quote. I may have to print and carry with me. This is actually the answer to our questions about yo-yoing and dissapointment when we gain the weight back AGAIN (me). As I review the parts of this one by one I think the one I have the most problem with is Purpose-the reason why. Health is motivating and I am healthy - ish. I want to take it to the next level and maintain that, though. Just a little further - 10-12 pounds less and more strength and stamina. I don't know if it's because I am "good enough" or if I'm just out of steam with all the demands of life??? Excuses? Maybe.....

LeakingLife on 07/16/2012:

Look at you go! Awesome job! So did you end up deciding to ditch the fit test, or did you fit it in somewhere? I did it yesterday, but I really lazed my way through it so i'm sure it's really going to help me find a benchmark. Oh well!

Have a great day today!

legcramps on 07/16/2012:
I mean, i'm sure it's really NOT going to help me with a benchmark. Must be too early ;)

My knees were killing me today, so I had to take it easy with the squats and work on my form a little more. I don't mind the up-down jabs, I really dislike the suicide drills ;) I swear I have an issue with vertigo...

Hey girl! In between storms right now. I stopped at the cycle shop on the way home to see if they still had the padded skorts 50% off. When I bought my bike in January, holly told me to invest in padded riding gear and when I saw those, that's what I wanted. Well I grabbed an XL because that's what I always used to wear, but after 3 weeks of walking and dieting I was already down 7 pounds so the legs were somewhat loose. I went to get a L, but they didn't have any so my hubby convinced me to squeeze my a$$ in a medium since they were spandex and that's what I bought even with the fat rolls muffining over the top. His point was if I kept riding they would eventually fit. Well 6 months later, they do fit, but I thought they might just be stretched out from 5 times a week use! So I stopped by there on the way home and that rack was still there! And the lonely XL was still there and an entire rack of S and XS but I found the only M on the rack! Cha ching! So on the way home I treated myself to take home sushi from my fav place. I got a fresh salmon box and a roll with fresh tuna, avocado, and spicy sesame seeds on the outside. I'll let you know how the caramel goes. I'm looking for some inspiration for this week. I think your quiche will make the menu! Have a un weekend and I hope you dry out a little!

Good Morning Ladies Just kidding!! This morning brought about internet connection issues from the overnight storms.. This morning's class was Max Recovery..True to form, this class was eaiser from the other Max classes but a bit of a "Speed Yoga" meets pushup marathon..LOL I took more breaks in this class due to all of the plank work today and of course yesterday..Making a mental note NEVER to do the 35 minute ab class( that has just as much plank work) the day before Max Recovery.. I imagine my arms are going to be super pumped by the end of this program..LOL

Work was a little buisier today and although the ominous clouds loomed over us all day, thankfully no rain..Well I am off to catch up with you all and get some fuel..I hope you all had a happy healthy day

Good Morning Ladies So today's class was Max Cardio Conditioning..It was a shorter class 48 minutes however, besides the water break after the stretch, it was non stop drills with "active recovery moves". Lots of core/ pushup/plankwork in this one as well..he did add a few more basketball and boxing drills..Loved the squat/speedbag move at the end, KILLER..LOL.. Well I am off to prep for work. Have a wonderful day all

Hey back from my loooooooong day..I had to open and close since the rain came in a litte earlier today..I kinda anticipated doing this so I didn't fully set up the bar like I normally do..Actually i was out the door quicker than the shift change would have been and the rain held out til I arrived home...I added an Insane Abs class(33 minutes) ..I hope this doesn't come back to haunt me in the morning for my Max Recovery class...You would think "Recovery" would mean an easy going class, but ya never know with Shaun T

Well I am going to check in with you all and get some fuel..

No breaks? Well, Im sure I'll be hitting pause on that one because I will hyperventilate and pass out. :)

Have a good one!

Deviled egg potato salad - yum! Hahaha - retreading this and auto correct changed deviled to defiled! I'm crashing early. My brain is more fatigued than my muscles right now. See ya tomorrow!

People from Lexington! Cool. The Petsmart in Brannon Crossing is where I volunteer with the Animal Shelter. I hope they got the pup from us! Anyway, good job plugging Rachel's classes! She is working hard and getting some results of more participants and some new BB customers. She is very passionate about her work :o) It's truly a small world. <3

i've been having the almond breeze i bought a couple weeks ago, finally, this week. i've decided that it's GREAT and really helps delay appetite...it must be the fat content (although not much fat, still some..)

you are right, i feel like an extremely new woman...and i will miss the fitness and amount of outdoor activity i am doing when i go back to work next week!

Reading your menu is making my hungry and I just had breakfast. RYC thanks, can't imagine anything more difficult.

RYC: too funny--I guess we never notice things in the VERY last place we'd expect them:-)

Hope your day's going all right!
