"Honestly, you've got to be kidding"
I said to Jose today
when he showed me our next step together
"Oh,no....I can't do that"....I said
as he fitted the loops around my shoes
and told me to lift my hips off of the mat


"I'm old!  This will kill me"
I pleaded...
"Up with those hips and now bring your knee to your chest"
.....and it didn't stop there
I had to do push up and squats and flys
with those wicked straps around my hands...
....but you know what
I had almost perfect form....and I did what he asked
and I was sweating and my heart was pumping away
...I loved every minute of it
After the torture was over
my mom ( who does the treadmill while I train )
well, we went out for a bowl of good chicken soup
comfort soup
Oh, am I going to feel it in the morning...
and that is a good thing



  1. I love that you are doing this ... embracing it!!!

    1. hee hee....embrace or sink
      I should have never stopped doing pilates...I could use the stronger core with this guy

  2. are will be superwoman before this is over...and take a tylenol or two before bed...just saying...

    1. yeah, I think I could become a gym rat

      got a massage yesterday....this old lady was hurting
      thanks for cheering me on Brian

  3. You're making my knees and hip ache just looking at the poster! Oh, where's my Motrin???

    1. do this so your knees and hips won't hurt
      ...come on Rick...trx

  4. So impressed Suz, and your Mom works out too....Wow!

  5. Good for you for finding that inner strength!! I'm cheering you on from the sidelines here in Virginia!!

  6. My drug of choice is Advil but any of this advice will do.
    I'm impressed. You make my lowly walk look absolutely sedentary... and YOUR MOM TOO. WOW! ... a family of wonder women.
    Keep up the good work...

  7. Just wanted to say hi, and keep it up.

  8. Congrats.

    You sound more dedicated than me...I just stick to the treadmill and orbital.

  9. Catching up with you, Suz -- good for you on the exercise regime -- I need to get moving myself now that the new knee is operational.
