Wow, Heidi, what beautiful places to exercise in. Just gorgeous. Forest Bathing, I'm in!

Mommyof2, some people used to say Claritin helped with that pain- you might give it a try. Hope you feel better over the next couple of days.

Happy Birthday, Sweet!

Brightness, hoping for good news for you on your pathology.

Sunday I went to the lake and walked around the lake, 50 minutes, with two bouts of my one-minute bone building runs. It was only 75 degrees and every soul in the county seemed to be there enjoying the fine weather. Today I'm resting and trying to fight my kicked up appetite all day.

I am back after being away for 3 weeks. Skimmed as much as I could. Welcome to newbies. This is a great thread to follow.

mommy-sorry to hear of your reoccurrence. Hoping your pain is going away.

Ruth- first surgery and then bees? You need a break!

Falconer- nice pictures! We had a great trip to Vancouver. We did some service work with the homeless, people with mental health issues and addiction. It was eye opening, exhausting and rewarding at the same time. Our kids (16 high schoolers) really stepped up and worked incredibly hard. We also went to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, the Botanical Gardens and saw the Fireworks competition. We stayed at a hostel in West End. We were in Stanley Park on the 9th following a visit to the aquarium. We flew home that night. Missed you by a day. The only disappointment was that the smoke from the wildfires prevented us from seeing the mountains.

We walked around 19,000 steps each day and I was down about 5 pounds when I got home.

Caught a terrible cold/cough upon returning home and I am not getting much exercise. Cancelled my oncology checkup because I do not want to share these germs with anyone who has a compromised immune system.

Hope that cough gets better soon, Ginger!

I am back from visiting my daughter, SIL and grandkids. The day at the pool was fantastic! We had a cabana for shade, my daughter made a picnic lunch, and we basically spent the entire day. DGD (9) spent most of her day on the water slides....I enjoyed sitting in the water and watching her...DGS was too small and young for the slides (at 4) but he enjoyed the water and playing in the sand...the pool is HUGE (about a city block wide and perhaps two or three blocks long) with an artificial 'beach'. It was big enough that I could swim laps quite a bit even (40 minutes or so) though lots of folks were enjoying the hot day in and by the water.

I leave Wednesday for my next trip, to Boston to see my son and his fiancee: time to start planning a wedding! :-) So, today, my exercise was running errands, and I did do a bit of clothes shopping. Back in the (local) pool tomorrow....

It's raining in a dreary way here today, but I did manage to get in a short walk this morning. I'm in the process of building a new house and getting ready to move, so I'll be packing today. I've got family to move the containers, but I can fill them as able. Nothing like packing up a big house to realize how much stuff you have, yet don't really need.

Ginger- what a nice trip! We did many of the things that you mentioned, though the suspension bridge wasn't on our itinerary. How nice to take HS students on a service trip such as that. my daughter and I loved the botanical gardens the best. She'd never seen a giant redwood before so that was a surprise. She's a real nature girl. Someday I'm sure she'll get to the Pacific NW again and see some giant giant trees!

Yesterday I ran a really fast 1.6 miles (for me) as I had about 15 minutes before I had to pick up my daughter and bring her to work. Tonight I hope I'm going to slow flow yoga. My posture is horrible thanks to the DIEP so it's time to straighten out these aches and pains.

Cycling shorts are worth every penny, Heidi, and the best ones come from Switzerland - Assos. I think the S5s are the best as the new S7s have too much compression for regular cycling. They make a major difference in butt soreness.

Relatively little exercise yesterday as went to see Madama Butterfly last night at Seattle Opera. However, as felt out of sorts and not my favorite opera, I bailed after the first act. I am glad I did as just so busy for the next several days and got to bed at 10, not midnight.

This weekend will be less exercise than normal as have the event in Oregon (NOT the eclipse), but I will be doing one last summer ride in 10 days. That should see me well out of summer. I am ready for the cool, crisp days of Autumn.

Catching up with everyone's exercise and mentally cheering you on. Want to send a reminder about next Monday's 5k "Made in the Shade" Virtual Walk/Run to celebrate the eclipse. I will be out doing a run and promise pictures. Hoping for at least a glimpse. - Claire

Well no more issues with the Taxol. It's been taken off the treatment plan. So I am still on targeted therapy but will be able to have a normal life as it is much easier on me. The buses in my city got rerouted to an alternate central location to start/end their runs because of the funeral for a former mayor today, so after taking the bus from the cancer center to the alternate drop off, I had to go to the hospital for some blood work for a test on Moday with my GYN. So I walked all the way to the hospital and got that done. Ten walked from the hospital to the mall to pick up the bus for home. So with all that walking, I got my exercise I for today

Octo - Boston will certainly be different than your SoCal weather, Have fun! Ruth - you all look shipshape! Badger - I could see the Tabata times in your graph. It's amazing how 4 minutes can totally wear you out.

Did a lot of Garden N Sculpt at the cabin this weekend, but I was sure to get in some serious hammock time as well. Yesterday the Nats had a day game with the Angels, so I convinced DH to play hooky and off we went. Lots of walking - close to 15,000 steps. It was a lot of fun, but the Angels beat my Nats by one run. The game was not over for a minute when DH's phone rang - it was his Angel fan Mom, calling to trash talk (at least as much as an 89 year old proper lady can trash talk). She is a pip! We chuckled all the way home. I did a 45 minute yoga DVD today to stretch out all the muscles after yesterday's walk. Ahhhhh.

Sun is trying to shine out early this Friday morning. HeidiHill, loved your photos and you look terrific. Living near the channel helps this water sign to cope. Falconer, good on the running and yoga & BB helped me to get shoulders back and the hip-to-hip stretched across, flexing and over time, and released some scar adhesions. Peregrine, hope all goes smooth for the revision and nips tomorrow. NatMary, hehe, trash talk, love it! Ruth, terrific photo and Ginger, are you back in the classroom next week?

Ok, well, results of exams came in yesterday and let's just say it's been a huge mothering challenge. My DS tanked terribly (didn't see this coming) on physics so he did not get his first choice uni yet did get his insurance choice. Now, we are dealing with known as clearing - sort of. It is a way for universities to fill any spaces they have left for the new academic year. You call schools and over the phone see if you can get a place - sight unseen; a real last minute scramble. DS has not given up his one offer yet sent his portfolio to two other unis to see if he gets an offer. Last night at BB, one woman said to me, it will never get easy to deal with our children's disappointments, even as adults. I think she is right. Was so hoping DS would nail it and the shock was starting to wear off, by yesterday evening. So life trudges on, and I need to get a lesson plan worked up for Pilates at noon. I signed up for a two day course in October, called, Move It or Lose It, a module training for group fitness aimed roughly at the 75+, including 'elderly and frail' as much of it chair based or assisted standing. This is a class to be taken into the community, such as a village hall. It dovetails with the qualification I'm getting soon for exercise and older populations. Hope the sun lasts and feels like autumn here. Have a terrific start to the weekend everyone.

Nothing is ever the same as they said it was.
