Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

As far as I know, having a mass said is usually not considered "tacky," and no one has ever objected before. I'll be sure not to have any masses said for any of your loved ones, Thardy. I wouldn't want to offend you by honoring your loved one in that manner.

OK, whatever it is called when you fill out a card to have a mass said for the soul of a deceased person and have to give a "suggested donation" to have it done. For instance, we have a very dear friend who lost their son, named Nicholas, in a car accident many years ago. Whenever I travel and there is a church dedicated to St Nicholas, I have a mass said and they send a card to tell the family that one has been offered. The family loves this and after many years are grateful that someone remembers their son.

What else are they going to say?  And only you would know if the family really needs to have it all brought home again whenever you casually happen upon a church "dedicated" to St. Nicholas.

<p>No, no, no spinning classes lol. My dh and I took some with our friend who is a physical trainer, bodybuilder. She is INSANE. lol. Others just love her and the class. I would rather do kickboxing anyday. lol. I also love the Ballet Burn and Kettle Bell classes I take. </p>

Isn't that funny?  I can't do repetitious, torturous muscle things.  And I never work on my upper body.  My arms aren't Michelle Obama's, but not far behind.  I don't want any more muscle there (I play lots of tennis).  So kettle bell and any class with the word "Burn" in it, is probably one I won't sign up for.

lol. The burn for ballet is for the lower body. Kettle bell is great for all over. I need to work on my triceps. The biscepts are getting harder though. Kickboxing works everything. My shoulders are actually still aching a little bit from last nights class from the bands.

I tried the kettle bell classes and discovered I have really lousy balance.

Interesting about kickboxing and working your arms.  I'll have to look into it if you think it's tolerable compared to spinning classes.  I love them and I know the people who take the same classes each week, so we all complain together.

That's funny.  I think you're supposed to use 2 of the same weight. Wink

Thardy - I'm confused, in the last monster thread about facebook you were saying how easy it was to keep a pm window open to chat and were congratulating Morty on keeping up with her facebook friends during work.

Balance is really hard. I sometimes feel like I am going to fall over in exercise classes lol. I am starting with 5 lb. weights as I don't feel like knocking myself out when we put them around our head or when we do the skull crushers. lol

We all complain together too and the best is we all work together so we talk about it outside of the classes too. lol. We all go back every week though :)
