Saturday List

March 26, 2022

Josh took the kids to bowling and frozen yogurt (Menchie’s), giving me a blissful ~3 hours at home. I will do something similar for him tomorrow. I spent half the time on podcast work and camp forms, and then did the last workout in Total Strength with Andy (on the Peloton app – I do not have a bike/tread/etc but I do like the app subscription and honestly someday may succumb to their treadmill, too).

It’s always satisfying to finish a program, though I still have to do the ‘strength test’ (maybe Monday) of pushups + squats. TS was 4 weeks long, but since I alternated with running and took a couple of total rest days (sometimes I’m just tired, you know?) it took me 5 weeks. I’m trying to decide whether to start TS2 — I’m a little concerned 45 minute workouts + warmup + cool down could be kind of long, but maybe I could abbreviated the w/u and c/d a bit.


✅ workout (done! why yes I am putting it here just to check it off)

❏ outline next week’s BLP ep on tracking: the good the bad & the ugly

❏ order groceries for tomorrow

❏ work on the family monthly calendar for April to share with our nanny b/c there is a MOVE, CALL, and a lot going on!

❏ organize desk (it’s bad right now)

❏ possibly buy plane tickets for all of us to Williams reunion (need to get this done but have been procrastinating)

Then date night!


A went to the Heat game with Josh yesterday! And right on time we are definitely in tween territory . . .

    You would probably like the hard core on the floor peloton calendar. It’s made up of a couple of short strength classes that are schedule by this amazing person Nicole at the beginning of each month.

    I almost finished TS2. I didn’t have time for both warm up and cool down so I skipped the warmup. Andy has a warmup in each workout. On the weekends I could usually squeeze it in and it was nice but during the week, I didn’t have time. I got pretty sick at the end of week 5 and had to skip working out for almost a week. The only thing I don’t like about Pelotons programs is that if you miss a week you can’t go back. You have to start the program over. You can skip classes within the week but you can’t progress beyond the week. Even so, I felt great when I got better! I pushed myself hard with the weight amounts during TS2. It was much more exhausting than TS1, so maybe prep yourself for that possibility!

    A looks SO mature in that picture! This is such a fun age for having kids join at events!

    What was your overall impression of the Total Strength program? Are the workouts all full-body strength days?

      Nope – the first two week are upper / lower / full, and the second two weeks upper / lower / full x 2.

      And I liked it. Not super intense but I had taken a break of a few weeks so it was a good re-entry point.
