Gorgeous day here but I spent most of it house cleaning but did spend a little time weeding my what used to be rose garden which is now a bona ride weed garden thanks to all the rain we've had. Wonderland I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friends 😥.

Did Body Combat this morning. I am dog sitting an English Bulldog and walking him is quite a trial, he just stops and digs in and so getting him to move is a workout in itself as he weighs a ton.

I am totally spent!!!

Day started out great...DD's 19th birthday. Talked to her early this morning and she faced time me this afternoon while I was driving...She said keep your eyes on the road and I told her I could talk without looking at the phone!! Had a great time chatting with her. Her friends made her a surprise party at the end of the day and her room mates gave her a necklace in the shape of Israel. It was fun reading all her friend's posts and pictures on fb. I was missing her this afternoon so when she face timed me it was perfect timing as that was when I was feeling not being with her for her b'day. The last year as a Mom of a teenager. There were a couple years when I didn't have a teenager but I knew she would be one in a couple years (does this make sense? Her older brother and sister and 9 and 12 years older than her). Very weird feeling having all my kids grown up.

Got lots of walking in today...Walked with my DH this morning and after dinner and a friend this afternoon.

Great day, till I got a call f

Karen: Did you fall asleep? Glad you were able to face time with your dd.

Sweet: Have fun!

Falconer: I do not know Nina Riggs so I looked her up. So, so sad. She was an amazing woman and writer. She died way too young. Thank you for letting me know about her. Also, I had a delayed DIEP in 2009 (left mastectomy in 2006). You have to take the first several weeks easy because you can't walk upright due to the abdominal incision. Once I was able to walk upright and all the drains were removed I started slowly back to my walking. I was out of work for 6 weeks and by that time my energy had returned and I was back to regular walking (but very careful about it and didn't overdo).

Had a fun weekend. My nephew is getting married at the end of April so on Saturday we had a family bridal shower. I love my family so much and we always have a great time together.

Walked/ran this afternoon.

Morning, Monday once again. Gray and dull here. Spent the weekend in London finishing up a Pilates course and passed with flying colors. Must turn attention to BB #76, choreography and technique, including level 1 layering of coaching. Release date is April Fools and I don't want to come across as a fool.

Falconer asked:< I've noticed some of you have had DIEP recon. How did you feel when you returned to exercise> I did not have delayed diep, mine was immediate and could return to the gym, limited at first, about 6 - 8 weeks post surgery. I had a frozen left shoulder a resultant collateral damage, and could not do too much in group exercise classes like step with a clap overhead nor lift anything. Lower body, using legs only was ok, as long as the workout pants were soft and no elastic pressure against the 21 inch hip-to-hip healing incisional scar. There are women who can run 5 miles (what seems like) days after diep, yet I've fallen within normal limits of healing - slow with forward momentum, no recovery set back other than frozen shoulder that resolved with physio and one cortisone injection. Took me 9 months to do a up dog. It was the mental and physical awkwardness to going back to the gym post surgery, wearing my same clothes yet being physically rearranged underneath (and painful range of motion limited), to found with another instructor, Pink Ribbon Pilates in our Kent hinterlands, what was (at that time) a waste land of bc cancer aftercare - 65 miles out from London, with little or nothing locally for women recovering from bc. Not everyone is a joiner, yet programs devised for bc or general cancer exercise are worth the time (on many levels) to attend. If there is something like that near enough to you, go for it. When I've expressed this in the past on BCO exercise threads, some women, think they are too fit to attend a class like that - fair enough, maybe they are, but the support and inside information is so valuable as well. Ok, off my soapbox. I've blabbed enough..Have a good Monday everyone!

Pink Ribbon pilates in the morning, Blockfit this afternoon and Body Balance/Flow tonight.

Good morning girls! The sun is shining in NC today. Should be 70 degrees today. It is warning up slowly. I have over 8,500 steps on already inside the house. A little spring cleaning is going on!

Over the weekend Saturday was almost 23,000 steps and Sunday only 14,000. I actually watched 2 movies with DH and my girl after church. It was cold here all day yesterday. DD and the family came over after dinner. New granddaughter is almost 2 weeks old! The almost 2 year old is doing so good with the new edition!

Falconer, I only sub at my old school, so I know the staff and how things are organized, and I only do subjects I enjoy, and only if I feel like it (I am good at saying 'no'). So it is actually fun; I get kid time, teaching time, but no meetings, no paperwork, and no hoops to jump through. I would still miss all the excitement if I didn't do it at all (although I think I will take tomorrow off because I talked so much today that I'm losing my voice!).

Thanks, Ruth, yes my post got cut off...I don't have the raw emotions when I posted yesterday, but I'll explain what happened. I was at Mom's yesterday afternoon and all was well when I left mid afternoon.. Mom's evening aid calls me at 5:30 in a panic and telling me that she has to call 911 for Mom...she said mom had non-stop "D", was out of it and having trouble breathing. I tell the aid to NOT call 911. Mom lives 3 miles from me so I head on over there. It takes me about 10 minutes to drive, park and get to her apt. When I get there, the aid had Mom in her mobility scooter and Mom was doing better. The aid had gotten Mom all cleaned up and we got Mom into bed. I stayed for about another hour to just be sure Mom was okay. Mom has a "Most" form on her front door and it specifies DNR. no article feeding and only comfort care. Its been on the door for 2 months...the form is bright green and the aid says she never read it!!! Really!! Well at least she now knows. The day time aid read it and know all about it. We now only have 2 regular aids for Mom. The day time aid and the evening aid who also does the week-end care.The evening is so so competitive with the day time aid and makes snide remarks about the day time aid, but she takes good care of Mom. I was soooo stressed last night. But today Mom sounded good.

Wonder...nope I didn't fall asleep!!

Ginger, I'm okay. Thanks for asking. It is very hard with Mom. She has degenerative neurological condition that will only continue to get worse. Other than the aids she has helping in her apt, I'm the one responsible for everything. She has known my DH for 40 years, but will not let him help her physically because it hurts her pride. She relies on me, which is okay as that is why I moved my parents near me 4 years ago (my dad passed away a month after they moved here). I miss who Mom used to be. We used to go to lunch together and she would come to my house for meals. She can no longer do either. It is not possible to get her in and out of my car. Mom is dependent for all her daily living skills.

Work was crazy today, and I'm sure it will be all week. Counting the time till Spring break next week. Since I don't work Fridays, only 3 more work days, but lots more paper work to do..Looking forward to having time to see some girl friends and do stuff in the house. i have 2 appointments next week and I'm sure the time will fill up, but hoping I'll be productive.

Need to go write a report for work.

Sweet dreams...

Karen, I'm sorry you had all of those difficulties with your mom's care, as that must be so hard.

Falconer, very doable and major muscle growth isn't achieved solely by exercise. Little and often protein, weight training 3-6 days a week, upping reps & speed, stay active moving major muscles - eating to get into calorie deficit = less fat & more muscle. A few divers here and something I've always wanted to get into. Had my 5 year out mammo and met with new bs. He was checking out my left diep, from all sides - lifting arms, feeling all around and remarked at how it well formed and matched my untouched rightie. I'm the smallest diep my PS had ever done and stated it was as difficult as a large one. Anyway, all was well for another year.

Tai chi this morning and BB tonight.
