More Pictures from Cathe Road Trip

To say that Saturday was a jam-packed, exercise-filled day would be a major understatement to say the very least. I am not sure I have ever been quite so exhausted but in a good way. The energy and enthusiasm from everyone - especially Cathe - just keeps you going. I cannot begin to describe what it's like to be working out WITH Cathe not just "to" Cathe. Even more amazing - all the other women (and 2 men) who were there for the same exact reason: love of and respect for Cathe.

It is an awesome thing to be surrounded by so many people who are enthusiastic about fitness and health. Not many people around me seem to know who Cathe is, so it's also soooo much fun to be around so many who know who she is and work out to the same DVDs.

I will totally admit being a bit star struck when I got to talk to her and have my pictures taken with her. But she is so incredibly down to earth and friendly. She's not just that way on the DVDs, she IS that way period. She is a tiny bundle of spunk. It is so obvious that she truly, 100 percent, appreciates every single person there. She made it a point to make sure to hug and speak with each person. And, cynics may think, "well duh, look how much money she makes off you guys buying DVDs, equipment, etc." No, she's very truly touched by everyone. Not sure how to really put it into words. The absolute icing on the cake was meeting Jessica and Jolene and getting to workout with them.

Here are a few more pictures. Right now we are in Philly trying to figure out where we might have dinner. And, for the record, I am beyond exhausted... Bedtime may come around 6pm (maybe sooner).

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too

Hitting the Gym and Lazy Means Creative Tex-Mex Creation

Sunday, Gym Day Why do vacations and min-vacations go by so quickly? Just doesn't seem quite right. Anyway, we left Branson around 9:30 am to head back home. It was a pretty uneventful drive back, which is usually a good thing. We got home and unpacked, then I headed up to the gym. I started with a 10-minute treadmill run to warm up before hitting the weights for back and light legs then abs. I went with a giant set for back then supersets for legs. GS - 4x8 Underhand barbell rows Pullovers Double-arm rows SS#1 Rear-leg elevated lunges (Bulgarian Split Squats) - 3x8 Calf raises - 3x20 SS#2 - 2x8 Walking lunges Plie squats with low-end pulse Single-leg deadlifts - 2x8 I did some ab exercises, stretched, and called it quits. Lazy = Crazy Dinner I may have made it to the gym and washed a few loads of laundry, but I never made it to the grocery store - lounging in the pool trumped grocery shopping. This meant getting creative with dinner. We had another package
