Good Morning!!

Today is going to be a wonderful day Smile

Steps for yesterday 938 but did a nice bike ride - about 21 miles. Unfortunately I think I pulled something in my knee as I've started hobbling around. I also hurt my elbow - go figure. I may have to take a time out on my cardio for a bit. On the better side, I managed to maintain my weight - think its having a handle on my portion size.

K, will check in later.

Hi everyone!

yesterday:
steps: 10,063. I saw on my fitbit that I was at like 9500 when I went to sit down to watch a movie, got motivated to go for 10K so walked from my bedroom (2nd floor) to washing machine (basement) and back 4 times to break 10,000. Smile
fiber: 32.3g
strength: yes, did the inchies with my son (9) and younger daughter (7) - fun! (still pretty hard) but 30s plank - OMG hard.
no snacks after dinner: check!
log food: yes, really surprised how low my calories were, I felt like I ate a lot.

Have a good day,
Meg

Morning teamies,

Work today and tennis in 100degrees on the hottest court in the city. Looking forward to that,not! It,s a cool beautiful morning. Drinking coffee cleaning and enjoying. 12,271 steps , high five.

Renee, rice: rest ice compress elevate! I have ongoing knee problems and the only thing that saves me is rolling out on foam roller: it band ,quad ,hamstring,calf. Advil is great to relieve inflammation.. I,m sure u know all this just friendly reminder.

Denise, Are we there yet,lol!!!

Meg, U are putting on the sass.

Jenn, U can do your own yoga but to get point u have to add in group challenge. An inchworm is walking downward dog, and plank really!

Becky, Here,s to good decisions!

To thine own self be true! My mantra for today, anything is possible with Decaf, coffee Laurie

I want to be a free spirit in a grown up life!

Renee: Take care of yourself!!!

Good morning Sassies!!!! I absolutely feel great this morning!!! I love my tuesdays because I don't have to be here at work until 10:30 so I can fit in a morning workout! I did my strength plus my extended workout that I posted yseterday. I ran through the sequence in under 10 min so I did it a second time. I'm thinking about doing it 2 more times tonight. I just feel like I am so much stronger. I did the dreaded inchworms last night and I got through them pretty quickly as well. They still aren't "pretty" but it's getting done lol.

Track: Yes
Steps: 3701
Fiber: Yes
Strength: Yes
No snack after dinner: Yes, even though I really wanted something to eat after my workout. I chugged some water instead lol
Total: 5 points!!!!

Good Afternoon! Raining and overcast, AGAIN... Sad

Report for yesterday...
Tracking~yes
Move~sorry no steps. 35 min on stationary bike, 15 min hoop.
Strong~A+D, plus
Fiber~yes
After dinner~of course not! Was within my WW points.
Water~ could have done better! Mad
I have an app on my phone WATER YOUR BODY. It alerts me to drink water. I need to use it!!!

4 pts.

Renee~ Please take care of your injuries.
Meg~ WOW! You rock!
Danielle~ Way to kick SASS!

Seems I am having some internet issues. I am technology challenged. My resident "TEC" (hubs) is away on business until next Tues. He thinks may have a problem with the wire-less box. Who knows! May need replaced like every thing else! He has instructed me on how to get on the internet. Tuesday is a long time from now. If I am not on here means I am not able too. Will catch up when I can.

Better get busy! Hope all are having a great day!

Morning sassies - off to a slow start this morning oh well afternoon now. Last night my body decided it needed rest rather than exercise and I was in bed at 7:00. Might have been the workout with my daughter that did me in, lol! I almost think she is a Jillian mini me in training. My abs are killing me today. I know no pain no gain, right??

Food track ~ yes
Steps ~ 3,887
Strength ~ yes ~ plus I have already completed today's strength
Fiber ~ yes
No snack after dinner ~ Yes

Renee- take care of yourself
Meg - way to take charge - have done that before also by walking laps in the living room, lol!
Jen - yes what type of yoga?
Denise - you should get plenty of steps today....
Laurie - have fun out there and keep the water handy
Susan - just saw your message a bit ago and replied, did the reset from tech help? If you still can't get it working PM your contact information and I can call you when I get home from work.
Kat - good for you! I know you will put it to good use.
Danielle - wow how impressive, I could barely move after working with my daughter for half an hour.
Brenda - steps or not 35 minutes on the bike counts as cardio.

Gotta get back to work.

Late checking in, but was up early. Got some errands done. Son had friends sleep over so it is messing up my routine. I am not going to exercise in front of them! They should leave soon. I was trying to fast track my studying, but the brain is mushy, the schedule is overwhelmed, and the study site is down...something is telling me to wait until we get back from wedding week. Boo.

Didn't do so good yesterday either

Track - nope
Strength - nope
steps 1972
Fiber - that should be yes
No snack - nope, ate a babybel cheese

Hubby is at work, son and friends just left....I hope I can redeem the today!
