Been busy with procrastinating pre-Passover cleaning and shopping and preparing, so I'm a bit behind the eight ball on other things, it seems. But now that I've got only today and tomorrow left, I'm finally motivated to get started and do the work. I'll try to get to the post office this afternoon to send my check as well, if not tomorrow for sure.

I walked for 50 minutes, 20 minutes of toning and then started cleaning house & making a grocery list as we will have company for Easter.....no school tomorrow so it will be 'shop and sculpt' and 'scrub and sculpt' and we'll see what else.

THEN I will have to get into my Easter cleaning mode as well.... of the 2 things, the cleaning will be much more "sculpting"!

Hi all, Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all.

On Lyrica now for problems with legs, going to vascular dr. next week, just can't figure out what is wrong with legs, constant charlie horse in calf area. Going for an ankle brachial index test the day of my diagnostic mamo. More terrified of the mammo. Thurs. of next week, can't wait. I keep blaming the Femara on all my aches and pains. Good excuse.

 Mary, did you get my check???

 Again, Happy Easter and Happy Passover. Going to a restaurant tonight with very good friends (extended family) and tomorrow night a sedar at the temple. No cooking for me!!!

Love to all and hugs,

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all.  Getting off early so will try and get in some walking this afternoon before Good Friday communion service tonight.  Tomorrow is a free day and weather is supposed to be nice so will do all my "make up" exercising which will include much needed housework.

Ronna, ouch to the charlie horse.  Every so often (too often) I get them.  I'm still trying to pinpoint the cause as I'm certain it's something I'm ingesting.  Everytime I think I've narrowed it down though it happens again and the 'culprit' is innocent but I'm afraid to re-introduce it because they hurt so badly (to the point of bawling in the middle of the night!)  Had vascular ultrasound to rule out clots.  Hope you find out what is causing yours.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover, All.   

Had a long evening walk with DH and dog - not sure if it's a full moon but it was bright enough to walk through the forest with just moonlight.

Ronna, I too suffer from leg cramps so know how excruciating they are.  Have you tried the bar of soap trick?  http://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2005/12/07/soap-under-the/  I read about it in Dr. Peter Gott's column several years ago.  Seems nutty but it works. BTW I use Ivory.

Mary, hope you get to feeling better.  Check & mailing label are in the mail.

Between yesterday and today, I've walked 5.65 miles (so far).  I'm about to get out there and enjoy an evening stroll while the sun is still shining.  It's nice to walk at dusk when the sun is setting and the moon is rising.  Supposed to be a full moon tonight.

Wishing you a good Passover or Easter, whichever you celebrate.  ((hugs)) to all

Soooo sore from yoga that this was my day off. My son has a friend here and we are going to climb a local mountain, hiking the steep trails. It is about 3 miles up and 3 down, and it is a workout! Looking forward to it!!!

Ronna, I had terrible charlie horses the first few months on tamoxifen. They were awful!! They worked themselves out- but it took a long time. I hope that it is something that can easily be remedied.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all. Take care, ladies.

Good Morning All.  Preparing for Easter, shopping and cooking.  

Will get out for some mountain biking later today with DS - haven't cycled in years so this should be interesting.   

Next week will be five months since my BMX - not a milestone anniversary but for some reason it's affecting me.  I'm weepy and angry, and thinking about upcoming onc appointment this summer in the States.  I haven't cried in months and it's surprising me.

((Joy)) the emotions are there buried deep, it gets to me sometimes and I'm 2+ years out.

I remember when I first started doing yoga, it often brought up tears, which surprised me.

Now I'm deeper into yoga and not surprised anymore.  But it still happens from time to time.  It's like body-grief.  I acknowledge it, and let it go.

As we talked about before, my emotions are close to the surface these days.  Not anger so much, I'm really trying to mellow out.  But sentimentality, that brimming feeling that wells up and spills tears from your eyes.  A simple song can do it, try listening to Louis Armstrong singing It's a Wonderful World and not crying as you smile.

Ronna, I just re-read your post about the constant charlie horse in your calf.  Wanted to let you know I will be thinking of you next week and hoping the vascular doc can figure it out.  And good luck with mammo on Thurs.

Did get out and walk 3.3 miles last night, it was a gorgeous evening.  ((hugs)) to all
