Pat congratulations on the new grandbaby, how exciting.

Octo ugh on getting prepared for your surgery but you'll be glad when you'll be able to run up hill and down dale.

Ruth glad you survived your back to school day and then got to dance.

Tonight I went to Cardio Dance Party and worked up a sweat on the "dance " floor.

We didn't find any of the black trumpet mushrooms yesterday, but had a wonderful hike in an area I had never been before. No problem getting my steps in yesterday. Today is meals on wheels delivery, then tackling the laundry monster which I skillfully ignored yesterday.

Glad you were able to do the treadmill test, Octogirl. The drug one scares me, too. Congrats on a new grandchild, Pat, so exciting. Sweetandspecial, that sounds like a great workout and a yummy dinner.

Did C25k wk2 day1 again. No calls interrupting tonight. Plus the Y has Food Network now and that made the time fly. Felt better this week than last, so improvement. It might have been that Chopped distracted me, but, whatever, better is better.

I logged in over 8K steps before noon today. Had to see 3 kiddos from the highschool and it took us 7 minutes each way to walk to the weight room, 3 students x 15 min walking up and down 3 flights of stairs x 5. Then to bodyflow(I think its called) OMG, it was so sad I almost started laughing out loud! I couldn't even lay comfortably on a stack of 5 yoga mats! The teacher was sweet. I just told her I was coming off a year of 4 surgeries, and that I was just going to do what I could and she was OK. Thank god I couldn;t see myself in the mirror!

Pat, congratulations to you and DH! 2FUN, it is bodyflow, good for going and yes to doing what you can. We call it bodybalance over here and it's what brought me back to full upper mobility.

Attended the conference (enjoyed being off work), held at the Aston University campus and learned a bit. I like Birmingham. It has so much going for it and growing fast. Fairly hipster'ish and can see why it's become a draw for young professionals looking to buy or raise a family. HeidiHill, interesting lectures on all sorts. A nutritionist spoke of the need for vitamin D3 for the months of October to March, because most of the population of the UK is deficient in vitamin D - didn't know that. Peak bone density and importance of calcium, which depending on who in the bc world you talk to, is either ok or bad. This nutritionist claimed there was no scientific evidence of milk being strongly linked with breast and prostate cancer, contrary to (the late) Dr. Jane Plant whom I know women here follow her advice (no dairy for one). Interesting lecture on applying music in exercise and sport. Glad I attended and please to see the sun this morning as it was drizzly for most of my time in Birmingham. Son is doing better, it's freshers week and now feeling more connected to his department, and those in his dorm. He is quite shy and well out of his comfort zone with all of this socializing, yet getting better at it, at least I'd like to think so, as I'm not calling - trying to let him find his way without interfering. This is letting go with love..I guess.

Pilates x2 & body balance tonight.

Exercise for yesterday was mowing the lawn, and delivering meals on wheels. The food truck delivered 1 hour late! But not one of my clients were grumpy about their late lunch. Off this morning to continue working on cleaning out our late friends house, then hopefully a bike ride to the beach this afternoon.

Pat, clever way to make a baby announcement. Congrats.  2FUN, funny that five-mat Bodyflow. You will eventually get down to one.  Octo, congrats on surviving the stress test. Drink lots of warm fluids in case your resistance goes down. I was sick the day after a stress test.   LB, thanks for the recap. Dr. Plant never made sense to me. Yes, Vitamin D is essential. I already feel a big difference now that the sun is moving away from our latitude. Have to get with my D program. Or go south. As for calcium, you need Vitamin D to absorb it and Vitamin K to get it into your bones and out of your blood vessels blocking blood flow. 

Yesterday was cardio kickboxing and salsa even though I was hurting a lot from yoga the day before.

HeidiHill, two women in Pink Pilates religiously follow Dr. Plant's recommendations, one a stage 2 the other IV. Plant made a huge impact in the UK bc community. I heard her once on radio 4, excellent speaker, also long time professor of geochemistry at Imperial College London, so high credibility and as one follower pointed out, she lasted 18 years with stage IV. Bringing this discussion down to zero, as I could give up all dairy but ice cream, I love, love, LOVE ice cream. Wonderland, terrific stress relief and hope the meeting results were as you hoped. Tessu, I'm so interested in hearing about your Kinesis class. At a spa I teach at, in the gym, they have one K training machine (Technogym) and rarely is it used. Nice WWW photos Ruth. I must now go and do housework - ugh.

I think.body flow was too much for me to do well, but I'll do it once a week just to see if I can keep up as I get stronger.

Ruth, smoke haze looks horrible. With the hurricane the news hasn't focused much on the wildfires out west.

DH and I rode our bikes to the beach yesterday, and then had a lite dinner outside at a waterfront restaurant. It was a beautiful evening to watch the waves. We negated all our burned calories by stopping for ice cream on the way home, but it was so yummy! Got back to the start of the bike trail just as the sun was setting. Did some classical stretch this morning (boy am I stiff), and hope to get a walk in later. My fitbit band broke, so I feel like all exercise done doesn't count! Ordered a new one online, should be here tomorrow.

Nice pics, Ruth, though the haze is not good. Hope it dissipates soon.

That cartoon is so funny. I have had second thoughts about biking for the same reason. But biking gets me to where I want to go faster. Also the Fitbit doesnt count salsa or tango as active minutes, but at least it counts the steps although not the turns. Pat, you can put the Fitbit in your pocket until you get the band.

Tessu, Kinesis is a great workout. We used to have the machines at my gym but no longer. Sigh. They use the space for Grit instead which they charge extra for. 

Two hours of tango.
