Is anyone else having problems with this? I've had to do it repeatedly to get in.  Sigh, the opposite of the definition of insanity where I did the same thing repeatedly and got a different result.  I went to that boot camp class, so bored, 6-7 moves with the kettlebell, 45 secs, 15 sec rest, through once, 1 min break, repeat for the whole hour.  I'm afraid I probably looked visibly annoyed.  I'm so frustrated with my new gym--tons of classes but the only cardio for the most part is power hour boot camp and zumba.  The instructor yesterday asked if everyone in the class was up for doing impact because she wanted to add it in.  Someone asked, obviously, if she could just do different levels of intensity.  Yeah.  Plus, I have the feeling the people in the class would not, for the most part, be coming back (new class). I'm just grumpy w/ my new gym and some of the instructors, especially since I know they didn't hire some of my friends who are much better.  Sigh.

I'm teaching step this morning and then dance conditioning tonight. Thankfully my jazz class is over. I've talked to some parents about the studio because their daughters used to go and it turns out the incessant chat is part of the culture there. I'd be sooo annoyed if I were paying that much for my kids classes and it was all chat.

Jean, that's frustrating. But try to keep in mind that you are NOT a layperson with this kind of stuff. And being an insider, you're always going to see how things could be better. I have another slow day... which is totally okay by me. One client this afternoon and some shopping. Doing cardio on the elliptical most likely. Not sure on food. I was planning on veggie shopping this morning after my early client but then I realized she is actually tomorrow and not today.

I'm definitely very picky about classes because I see what I'd do. With this one, though, many left by the end.  It was just unsafe to see all those kettlebells swinging in odd ways.  But, I do need to learn to turn off my instructor brain and just do the class.  I did think, if I taught this class, the prep would be a no-brainer!

Hi Jean,

I had the same issue. It appears that the system is really slow in recognizing that you're signed in. I signed in then visited a few boards and then I was logged in completely.

I'm sorry for the frustration and inconvenience. I know they are working on the slowness which should resolve many of the issues being experienced.

Thank you for your patience,

Erin

Hey everyone, The sign in problems have been reported. I believe this is caused by some fixes being rolled through right now for performance issues and hopefully is just temporary.

I am still so dang tired, that I took a sick day. Could it be emotional? This weekend,when I saw my dog walk funny (thinking he would need another surgery and knowing we can't justify any more money on a losing battle), I burst out in tears and couldn't stop. This dumb dog is the one happy constant in my life, and I couldn't bear the thought of losing him at the moment. Aaahhh, well, life is not easy, is it?! And the one thing that gives me more happiness is working out, and I simply do not have the energy for it. I CAN feel a bit of congestion and sinus issue (minimal, really), so I have to think that I have a strain of a virus I have had already, such that I don't have the full force of it. I had a two minute cough attack last night, so I am thinking that is what it is. I HATE being sick. :( Better now, though, than when my family comes in in a couple weeks. So, I have lots of work and personal administrative stuff to do, and I have a hair appointment this afternoon. No workout because I am SO TIRED. If this persists much longer, I am going to have to go see a doctor. :( Wow. All I did was complain. On a positive note, the house looks fairly decorated for the holidays. I should probably take some pics to remind myself of the "martha-like"stuff I did around the house. :)

Thanks, Erin. I'm glad you're all on top of it.

I'm wondering if it's hormonal. I find myself getting emotional over things that wouldn't have bothered me in the past.  I'm glad, well not glad, but it's reassuring that someone else is going through the same things.  Hope it gets better soon. For me, it comes and goes quickly. I'll bet your house is beautiful for the holidays.  I look at catalogues and think I should get my act together but then I can't be bothered. I need to hire someone.

I tried to reply to another thread and it woulln't post, thus the 'test'. I didn't go to the gym this morning. I realized I can go tomorrow night and I really prefer that. Then I will go to Zumba Saturday. I have taken the team home from work four times. The first night, I got off one stop too soon. The second night I got off one stop too late. Last night, I got off at the right place but made a wrong turn so took a roundabout route home. Tonight...I did it perfectly! For me, this is a huge achievement because I have no sense of direction...I have to memorize directions..and I am night blind so landmarks at night are hard...but I did it..it takes so little to make me happy...Jean - looking forward to watching your video...can't from my iPad but I will set up my pc on the weekend. FSN - glad you gave yourself a break. To all facing menopause..it is awesome on the other side...no mood swings, no cramps, no monthly mess...hang in there. Gymrat - I guess the vegetables will wait. karle, forgot to say congrats on finishing your degree!

Oh, I totally understand being excited about getting around by yourself. When we were in Dublin last spring, I intentionally went out shopping by myself just to prove that I could do it. The condo we were staying in had tons of security so I had to go through 3 locked gates just to get out. It was strangely liberating once I found myself back in the condo.
