"Motivation is temporary. Discipline is forever."
I ask myself the same question... Especially for the cat that is always going under me when I do plank, under my head when I do crunches, running around when I do squats or jumping jacks... And children always have things to ask me when I do my workouts, always :-D
And here I was, thinking it was just me! Especially the cat thing.

Argh! Missed yesterday's workout due to a phone emergency. Literally. My daughter's phone died and she's beginning her second college semester and needs her phone. Did I mention that all of her classes are online? :nod: After several of unsuccessful attempts to resurrect her phone, I gave up and we drove the hour+ to town. They couldn't fix the phone either. So now we each have a brand new phone and a brand new (and bigger) phone bill. Yes, I got one too, since both of our old phones were in dire need of updating. At least I had the day off yesterday so it all worked out.

16 Jan workout:

Now I'm going to try to catch up on all the work I didn't get done yesterday....... :typy:

@MadamMeow thanks. I wasn't planning on the expense so soon but needs must.

Is it Friday yet? I think all things technical in my world are falling apart. At work we couldn't make any outgoing calls and the fire alarm kept going off. I would have preferred the incoming calls not to work :LOL:. A visit with my mom and I ended up fixing some stuff on her computer. It's never something she's done, of course, things just 'happen' and 'disappear'. :oops:

The last couple of days were interesting. Thursday I took Mom shopping and then did some emergency drainage work around the house as some big storms are in the forecast. I wasn't feeling well and it was late by the time I was finished so the workout didn't get done. Friday (yesterday) I really wasn't feeling well and called in sick. I must've picked up what's been going around school; sore throat, tightness in my chest, aches and fatigue. Today I am feeling much better, not 100% but nearly so. I thought a little exercise would burn the illness out of my system.

It was a typical Monday at the school office:
cleaning up after a very ill kindergartener, disinfecting everything and then having yet another sick student arrive....I even repaired a student's glasses. One of the urinals in the boys' bathroom overflowed. Did a payroll audit. Attempted to figure out why we get four telephone bills each month. A fairly quiet Monday. :LOL:

It was a mellow day at work today except the students keep passing the sick bug to their classmates and teachers. :p
No rain again today and it's a much needed break. I'm starting to feel like a mushroom from all the precipitation: pale, damp and kind of soggy.

The sun was out today! Unfortunately I think it melted some of the students' brains! I gave out 3 ice packs in 40 minutes, wrote up two head injury reports (both minor, but required), answered a barrage of sales calls (#$@%!!), filled in for someone on yard duty--which was fun, as I rescued a banana slug and relocated it out of harms way. In other words, a fairly normal day.😁

Yesterday my back was really hurting, so no workout. I'm scheduled to get an injection soon, we'll see if that helps long term. I hope so!

27 Jan workout:
:rstar: PT Exercises - 15 min
:rstar: Power HIIT - day 2
:rstar: Back & Core - day 2 This seems really easy so far; I'll give it a few more days but may have to find something more challenging.

:cantwait: Next I'm prepping food for tomorrow's football game as we'll have some friends over to cheer for our team!

The exercises in B&C are effective. And they will help with back issues.
The workouts are all very short, as it's meant to be an add-on program. You could up the intensity by doing longer holds, more reps, if you feel the need to do so. But I would urge you not to discount this one just because you're finding it easy. If you're having to take days off from working out due to back pain, I think this program could be a big help to you.

In any case I hope your challenges with your back heal up soon!

@Laura Rainbow Dragon yes I'll stick with the Back & Core because day 4 was really hard! Having a strong core is so important for back health!

So yesterday was busy with football but I did manage to squeeze in a workout before our friends arrived. My back is feeling better! Thanks for the healing vibes everyone.

Wow what a crazy day. Lots of kiddos out sick. Wrestled with questions like: Who's going to sub for our sick bus driver? Who's idea was it to have a fire drill today? Who's wiping their boogers on the bathroom wall?! :cantcope: On the positive side, we had a staff potluck and the theme was salad bar :salad: so I had a great lunch.

@Deadoks Thank you!

I had an injection in my sacrum on Feb. 1st. It hurt a lot and my left leg was numb for most of the day; which is why I was advised not to drive or work. But the next day I felt amazing!! I can stand up without the 'zzzt!' of pain. Not wanting to mess up a good thing, I waited another day before exercising. On Saturday the clouds parted long enough for me to take a nice long hike. It's been months since I've been able to do this without pain. I feel so. much. better! :happy:

3 Feb Workout:
:rstar: Hiking with some nice inclines

4 Feb Workout:

:rstar: PowerHIIT - day 7
:rstar: Back & Core - day 7 Did I say this was easy?? Ah, no.

By the way, the Groundhog said there would be an early spring but from my window all I see is rain and snow showers. I think the Groundhog lied.

Yesterday I had to go to town and got home late. It was snowing hard over the pass! I was able to do my PT exercises but that's all. It has been an emotionally draining week. There was a family emergency Sunday night and I'm still dealing with the repercussions. Mentally exhausted. I said no to an afternoon meeting and came home to do my workout.

7 Feb workout:
:rstar: PT exercises - 15 min

8 Feb workout:
:rstar: PT exercises - 15 min
:rstar:PowerHIIT - day 9
:rstar:Back & Core Day 9 - really confused on the instructions for this and posted for help on the Ask A Question thread. Not sure I did it correctly. :confused:
