Hi, all. Too much running around to spend time on the internet on vacation, and only got to the planking one time. Between walking a lot, and never being sure exactly how clean the carpet was in hotels, I just decided to hold off for a week.

But I'm down to a new low, so something worked!

Good Monday morning Plank Peeps!

I missed Saturdays planks so considered that my day off for the week. On Sunday I did this workout:

90 second front plank on forearms and toes
50 second side plank on forearm and toes
12 modified push ups
T-Tapp organs in place and half frogs
T-Tapp Hoe Downs
30 second downward facing dog
30 second child's pose
12 reverse crunches
12 triceps dips

Today I was running late so couldn't do my workout without being late for work.

Thanks, you guys.

I'm readjusting to my own time zone again today. I am pretty sure by Wed I should be back to normal. Last night, though, I was still going until 1 am. It felt like 11 pm, to me.

LOL, Jo. Maybe I should modify that to: as normal as possible.

Yesterday: 1:00/rest/30.

I knew it'd be an adjustment, and it was. Made it to lights out by 12:30, last night. A half hour a night will be good enough, I think.

Yesterday: 1:05/rest/35. Moving back up.

Did a bunch of weeding yesterday. It was 90+. I don't know how much exercise that equaled, but I certainly got a good sweat going. Better than a sauna!

Happy Friday all. It's a long weekend up here in Canada and I am looking forward to being outside.

I had very low energy this morning but decided to power through my workout anyway. I'm glad I did.

Yesterday meant a lot of weeding, and, as a result, a sore lower back. Only 1:10, then no more.

Strengthening in other ways, I guess, means not so much in the planned way, afterward.

Mouse, thanks for the rooting. But it's not nearly where I was before my vacation. Nor, as I have shown myself over the years, is patience one of my most obvious virtues.
