Where is everyone Tuesday?

I might have missed it all since I was gone last week but where is everyone? Did FSN say something about being in DC?  I have a terrible memory.  I decided to skip silks yeterday and be smart. The thing is my ankle is much better but there's swelling with it's down.  I'm so frustrated sitting still after coming from vacation!  I need to move and can't.  Anyway, I'll stop whining.  I teach the dancers tonight, my last class.  Other than that, I'll be resting.

Oh yikes-if there's swelling then you know there's some kind of injury so do something that doesn't require your feet/legs.  

I think Fresh is at a training in DC all week and Gym is at a resort with no internet. 

For some reason my font is so darn tiny this morning I can barely read things. I need to reboot my laptop to see what the heck is going on with it. 

I need running shorts. Typically I wear shorts with a liner but the liners are causing me some issues. I know this is tmi but I can't wear underwear when I go on long runs because of the chafing. I've tried different brands and nothing helps so I just do without. I have tried a few pairs of spandex shorts but can't seem to find any that don't ride up and grab me since I am having to go commando. Ugg. Any suggestions?

Hi guys!  Meant to make it here yesterday but never did.  I had a bunch of stuff to catch up on yesterday work-wise and then I was out all afternoon with a therapy appointment and getting my allergy shots.  I had several pitches accepted last week and they were due today so I wanted to get them done.  I still have one more article that is due tomorrow.  

Happy, would it be an option to hire your trainer privately?  If your building has a fitness center, you can use that.  Or, a public park or either of your homes.  You could pay him the same amount you're paying now and he would get all of it.  Just a thought.  

Jean, I saw the thing about your ankle.  I'm proud of you for resting.  I know you aren't so good at that.  

Karla, I'm in awe of your running success!  Go you!  

I had a lovely weekend.  Both concerts were fantastic and it was super nice to get away for a bit.  I did have internet at the resort but only checked email and purposely left my laptop at home.  

I've been busy writing this morning and client is coming over soon for a session.  Just finished a step workout and going to OP's this afternoon.  

Saw my therapist yesterday about mom stuff.  It had been nearly a  year since I'd seen her.  She gave me some stuff to chew on regarding my relationship with my mom.  If I come up with anything poignant, I'll share.

I go commando under tights, too.  I wear more expensive tights and maybe that makes a difference--I like Lucy, Athleta and will buy Lululemon but I'm boycotting them.  I also have luck w/ Skirt Sports--again pricy but .they have good sales.

Are you have new mom issues or is this same old?  I'd love to hear if you discover anything new.  I deal w/ so many issues w/ my mom and she can't remember any of the things she's done but can't understand why we're not closer.  I felt like reminding her so it didn't seem like it was all me but decided that served no purpose.  I'm just imaging this being me and my daughter in the future w/ my daughter giving me a list of grievances I can't remember.

GR, I wish there was a private option, but the way we train is heavy weightlifting, and I can't think of another place we could do this. Plus, he sees people back to back so traveling isn't an option. I was right - not only are the trainers not getting a piece of the increase, they didn't even know we were getting the email about the price increase...or anything about the increase...I am going to email the gym manager and express my concerns, but I doubt it will make any difference. Glad you had a fun weekend, and good luck with thinking through mom issues. Karla, I have no commando advice...but I hope you find a good solution. Jean, hope your ankle is better so you can jump and fly tomorrow...I went to the gym for lifting, starting with 18 minute bike warmup, ending with abs...then ran 2 miles. The good thing is that I am done running for the week...we are expecting torrential rain tomorrow so I will be working on an ark...

It's good to let your gym manager know how you feel.  I agree, it probably won't do any good but they need to hear from members.  I'm sure he knew it going in that there would be a lot of unhappy people.
