1.  Any specific plans for the new week?

2.  Do you have a favorite song?  If so, what is it?

3.  What's for dinner tonight?

It took 2 weeks but I lost the 2 lbs I gained on vacation :)

Easy though, just went back to my routine and no ice cream, banana cream pie, bagels, pizza, sweet tea, etc lol

"Hard" or "Intense" cardio is non stop jumping and moving for 45 minutes-1 hour, IME.

So, pretty much, every workout I do. Except a workout's intensity has little to do with its length--once you're beyond 45 minutes or so, you're into endurance, rather than intensity.  Midweek, I prefer not to do any workout longer than 45 min or so; I do longer ones on the weekend, but unless it a torture workout (Total Body Shaping Mix or Max Body Sculpting), I don't think I get more after an hour than I got before the hour.

Every class feels like torture lol. (we all come back though as we love it and it works). We also do bands and floor work in the class. Ballet is less cardio but she has added more and kettle bell is a great workout too.

Tonight the kids and I went running and walking on the school track. Monday my ds and I went walking for about an hour and yesterday him and I did a 7 minute exercise regimen. I need to get something in this week for not having class. 

I know you've already said you don't like working out at home, but you should see about getting a copy of The Firm's Pump, Jump and Jab (you can turn the jumps into squats to keep the curio cabinet safe).  I think it's just  the kind of workout you'd enjoy and Kelsie Daniels is a badass.

Thanks for the recommendation :)

Doesn't sound like it to me.  You said you don't like to work out at home because jumping around makes things shake in your house.  that's a sign of a poorly built house.  For instance the workout I did tonight had several dozen plyo jumps in it.  Nothing in my house was shaking (aside from "the girls" because even my best workout bra is no match against plyo jumps).  My workout video collection is in a Ikea case with glass doors--it never moves a bit when I'm working out, whether I'm doing plyo jumps, burpees or using the Rebounder.

Well maybe then I am more paranoid about my tall glass curio falling and don't like when my TV shakes. Shrug. I don't have much room to exercise in my living room and don't like to have to keep moving furniture to do so. 

I understand if you prefer a class environment--a lot of people do.  But you're the one who said your house shakes when you do "hard cardio" (whatever THAT is supposed to be).

But you said you did work, you answered emails....uh oh.  

I checked my emails at home. I can only do so much, basically answering them (with as much as I know off hand to answer as I have no access to any programs at home), deleting them or filing them away.

  That doesn't sound too smart.  

What doesn't sound too smart?

Do you also have to take a full day to go to a doctor's appointment or something?

We usually work it if you come in late, you can work through lunch (or sometimes my boss just tells me don't worry about it), take a half day either which way or leave early and work through lunch. We only have to indicate full and half days on our timesheet though.

 And why do you even have to account for your time like this if you are salaried?

Jury Duty is for salaried and hourly employees. Just like bereavement days, birthdays, maternity leave, etc. Anything that is not vacation, personal or sick days.

I have.  I am very sorry that your house is so poorly built.

Sounds like you didn't read what I said. It has nothing to do with the house. Sigh.....
