I asked for a new fitness tracker for my birthday. Looking st the Fitbit Flex 2 or the Fitbit Alta. I have an almost 2 year old Flex. For the most part I've been happy with it. I like the trim size of both these models. What does everyone use? And why?

Ruth: A couple of days ago I read an article about words/sayings in the Midwest. One word was Hotdish. I know what a hotdish is. It's a casserole! Smile Yum - I love tater tot hotdish/casserole!

Cheryl: Dd started Beach Body DVD with your Jericho! She told me she really likes her, especially Jericho's voice which is calm and makes her want to workout.

Karen: I don't have a Fitbit but dh does. His is a Fitbit HR Charge 2. He bought it for all the functions but really likes that it tracks his sleep bc he has sleep apnea.

Another rainy day. Stayed inside and worked on some wedding signs for my nephew's wedding this weekend.

I like the slim style that the Alta and Flex 2 offer....can't make up my mind, so I told hubby that he could decide for me. If I remember correctly, the Alta has a "watchband" type do up!! I got my Flex in June 2015...I've gone through a few bands but these last pkg I got have been the best. I need to check out how much the replacement bands are for the Alta as they are reasonable for the Flex.

Weather is getting colder here all week with rain in the forecast. Not going to complain as I'm not ready for summer yet, but I'm ready for summer vacation!! 6 more weeks!!

Was going to work on my final assignment for my class which is due Wednesday as well as my EOY evaluation on Thursday but got side tracked. Need to complete some forms for Mom's renewal for the Access-a-Ride as the nurse practitioner is coming for monthly visit tomorrow so I can have her sign it.

My boast is that exercise can lead to much more interesting meals.

Tonight's dinner features Beer Brats from the Methow Valley, mushroom risotto, local asparagus, and stewed rhubarb. The brats are from my February ski trip where I stopped at the local butcher prior to heading back. Still feasting on that haul. The rhubarb is from my cycling adventure last week. (I got fabulous local eggs too.)

The risotto is more interesting. I was in Pike Place Market last Friday where I got the amazing asparagus....VERY purple and VERY thick stalks!!! I inquired about morels, but far too dear at $67 per pound.

Imagine what I found growing next to the trail during yesterday's run??? Yes, morels!!! They needed to be used immediately, so into the risotto they went along with shallots acquired at the same place as the rhubarb.

I expect to be blissed out shortly. Imbibing some lovely South African Cabernet Rose right now. Perfect as it's spring-like, but with the heft of a winter tipple. - Claire

Octogirl, that is the best kind of dinner.  

Claire, wow, what exotic-sounding foods. I have never even seen purple asparagus.  

I lost 3 kilos during our spring break in Italy but have now gained it all back. It was probably all the sweating or a crazy scale. Now we are back to winter. We have more snow in the mountains now than we had all winter, but the lifts are all closed. Crazy weather.

I have a Blaze which I had stopped using for a long time because of a band allergy. Then I decided to buy a leather band... I connect the tracker to my phone GPS if necessary, but I also have a Garmin as a GPS given as a present by DH who uses it more than I do. I think the Fitbit undercounts my steps when I use it on my wrist. It does a much better job when I put it in a back pocket. It then tickles my butt every hour during the day to remind me to move. Lol. I really like that they updated the software to include the Relax function (deep breathing exercises) and Cardio Fitness Scoring, an estimate of VO2 max. I rarely use the heart rate function because I am suspicious of the sensor as it is near the liver meridian in acupuncture speak. At least that is where the acupuncturist talks to my gut and it answers back with funny sounds. My stomach feels queasy when I have the heart rate Thing on and once it made me go straight to the bathroom. Karen, I realize this is more than you wanted to know. I did take the cardio fitness test and scored "excellent" for my age or above average for a 20 year old. Sorry for bragging but am definitely fitter now than when I was 20 years old. I was asthmatic and would quickly run out of breath. Thanks to a daily exercise regimen I am a much improved version of myself. Thats why I love this thread.

About Fitbits in general I read somewhere that it is more effective if you have a friend or two. IMO one friend should be better than you and the other worse for best results. Lol. 

TH, forest bathing as the Japanese say (in Japanese of course). Go for it.

Attended tai chi this morning and this is where I'm a participant - not teaching. Pam was in class, Pam has also started a month ago, Pink Ribbon Pilates (that I do teach). She had her first BC diagnosis, a nearly two months ago, coming in at stage IV. She wore a soft knit hat as her hair is nearly all gone and third round of chemo starting next week. Trying to combat a high level of fatigue, she was able to muster energy to come this morning and obviously has lost weight as well. She and I always stand near each other when doing the forms/movements; she is good - really good. In the middle of class, I could see a smile creep across her face and I recognise that smile. It's the one where when you are in active treatment and for brief period of time, you forget you have cancer, lose yourself, in the moment - and feels l like it was before - before the crap hit the fan. We talked afterwards and yup, that was where she was and felt better for coming to class.

KB870, amazing indeed and a reiki master. We, us who have been through it understand, we know - we have been there. All women who post on this thread are remarkable, each unique, and see, including enjoy, the value of being active, be it walking, gym classes, swimming, to high mileage running. In working with bc woman in and out of tx, it's hard to get across that cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is not relieved by rest or sleep. One of the main components to relieve CRF, is movement - the one thing you least feel like doing. Walking is easy and nearly accessible to all - a terrific place to start and does not need be a great distance covered. Baby steps is where it starts and if there is a program close enough to attend that is tailored to bc recovery or cancer recovery - go for it - try it - lots of research and thought goes into what is offered. A win-win if you take the plunge.

TW, hope you are feeling better and moving easier. Ruth, love you WWW women. Falconer & Heidihill, like the idea of yoga facetime. I get so many online yoga classes banged into my email box - quite a online cottage industry that has grown by leaps and bounds.

Very well put, Lilac! You may be interested to know that among the Wednesday Walking Women, we have 4 BC survivors, one miracle ovarian cancer survivor.....I say 'miracle' because she was in college when diagnosed 37 years ago. She was her young oncologist's first patient & he still calls her every year just to check up on her (I am sure that she continues to be an inspiration to him in his very tough job!), another gal who has such a strong family history of BC that she gets more screenings than I & is on an anti-hormonal as a precaution. Most of our ladies have either faced serious health challenges themselves, or have a family members who have (which happens all who have the opportunity to live a longer life). I think everyone in the world (no matter what else is going on) would be happier, and almost all would be healthier, if they would add the healing power and joy of movement into their lives. And if you can do some group exercises (whether it be in a formal setting or a walk with friends); then you add the social component, which is also a key ingredient to a happy life.

Did a kickboxing workout with a friend. She is taking her dog for a walk later on when it will presumably be a little warmer, so I will grab the grand-puppy and join her.

Cheryl, LMUK removed the touch points for attending Live events and quite a bit to grumbling too. Core De Force is a solid workout series and will do well and give LM combat competition. Glad you had a master trainer who offered valuable top tips. KB870, gardening and housework are exercise, no doubt about it.

I mention the Pink Pilates, Livestrong Cancer programs, etc..that are available in many areas of the US, because they do work - help to bring you back from the decimation point that active treatment takes us, feels good to be with others that understand and so many don't know they exist. Here we are online, yet in face-to-face, coming back from active treatment can seem daunting and isolating. For nearly two thirds that I work with, they are anywhere from 1 year out to five from active treatment. Not feeling overly good about themselves because of weight gain of AL's, effects of LE, and wanting to do something and feel motivated - healthy again. We pedal hard in trying to get the word out, finding women who can and want to come to our free weekly class. We get maybe, one a month if lucky. I'm also working on our 4th Wellbeing Day fundraiser in July and the women signing up for that are coming in at a trickle. It's work to keep plates spinning for women like us, I'm committed with heart and soul and keeping at it.

This is my day off, yet, off to teach stretch, tone and relax for a instructor who called last minute for cover as she and her partner want to go see a house to rent. Have a good weekend everyone!

Lots to catch up on since I last posted.

First, Pat, belated condolences on your good friend. I am so sorry. Two - good to see you and glad that you're recovering from your injury. Karen - think you made up your mind on your fitness tracker, but like VelvetPoppy, I use the Garmin Vivosmart HR. Annoying - brave to work out with 20 year olds!! One advantage to living in a 55+ community - at 60 I'm generally about the youngest in any fitness class. Lilac - good for your friend Pam to get out and do a class during chemo. What an inspiration. Those of us who have been there know how hard that is.

Had to laugh at Wonder's translation of Ruth's Midwest "hotdish" to the South's "casserole". I love little regional variations like that - Midwest "pop" v. coastal "soda" v. southern "coke". West coast "tulies" v. East Coast "boonies".

Fun to see other Outlander fans. I've decided that I'm better off just reading the books, rather than actually watching it. I'm really squeamish about violence and cruelty, so when I'm reading I can kind of skim those parts. I don't have the option when watching a video! Maybe it was because I was still on painkillers when I was binge watching the first season, but I had too many nightmares after that bingewatch, so I think I'll stick to the books. I just finished Book 7, and I'm 11th on the library's waiting list for the eBook download of Book 8 (down from 85th a few weeks ago, so the list is moving).

Recovery is slower than I'd like, but I did make it to my fitness class on Monday. I didn't use any weights or other equipment, but just "air balled" it (as the instructor called it). It felt good to do something. I've also been doing a lot of walking. PT started yesterday, so I'm pretty sore today.

Had a female wild turkey hanging around the cabin most of last weekend. We have a flock that lives in the woods around us, but this is the first time one has gotten brave enough to come out to the cleared area around the cabin, at least while we've been there. At one point we left to run a few errands, and when we got back, the turkey was at one of the cabin living room windows, pecking furiously at it. (We have ceiling-to-floor windows.) Mikey our min pin was on the other side of the window barking wildly at her. We chased her off, and when we got in the cabin, poor Mikey was so scared he was wide-eyed and shaking, but still bravely trying to protect the house. I can see why he was terrified with this big aggressive bird at the window trying to attack him! I suspect that she may have been pecking at her own reflection initially, but then when Mikey tried to attack her through the window, she may have attacked back. Who knew wild turkeys were more aggressive by far than bears? Heading back to the cabin tonight - we'll see who is hanging around this weekend!

Glad you are on the mend, Mary. Good luck to Mikey the Miniature Turkey Hunter! Or perhaps turkey prey? Yikes!
