Went to the gym today. Amazed I got there because my schedule kept changing. I did 30 minutes weights really beginning to increase the # of pounds and 15 on the elliptical. Trying to pick up the pace there. I use the lose it app on my phone to record what I eat. It keeps me focused. I put on a skirt today that always felt a little tight and it seemed a little loose today. Either the elastic is giving out or the trainer is correct and my waist line is shrinking. According to the tape measure my waist line is shrinking.

Happy

Everyone keep up the good work.

Happy anniversary, Mary! Give Mark a hug from your "Sculpted Sisters."

70 mins @gym tonight - all treadmill ==> 470 cal burned. TY Miami Sound Machine!

Really feeling last night's stability ball elbow circles in my abs tonight, in a good way. (Kneel in front of a stability ball with your forearms and elbows on the ball, hands clasped. Roll the ball forward until your legs are extended and your body is in plank position, toes tucked. Brace your abs and make small circles to the right with your forearms, as if stirring a pot.)

Supper with mom 2moro so that's my rest day for the week. Keep up the good work, everyone!

I smartly took a break today. Was really tired from yoga last night and put on 10K steps at school. Was 90 degrees in our classroom. I'm wiped ouy. Will try again tomorrow.

Badger, I can't picture the exercise. But it sounds like a killer! Great job!

I woke early this morning and did 30 minutes of yoga, then came home this afternoon and napped. 2Fun, I'm with you. The classroom heat is a knockout!

Wonderland- good for you to get out for a run in this weather.

Brutersmom- congrats on the shrinking waistline!

Mommyof2- glad you got a run to the PO.

Badger- you always amaze me. I haven't been to a gym in twenty+ years. I'd be laughed out of the locker room as I would be looking for the stair stepper.

Ruth, do you find that you sub often on Fridays?

Yoga class for me in the morning. Happy weekend everyone

In Oregon, dropping older DD off at college. Walked on beach for an hour. Felt like a good workout on a beautiful, sunny day. Also walked around campus quite a bit. I think the exercise ball would be nice to do at home. When I did it at physical therapy, I felt muscles that I have never used in my entire 55 years. Ruth, I had to have a sub for the last 3 days. A good sub is a treasure. Fortunately, my sub was a former paraprofessional who knows the kids well.

I walked around our county's agricultural fair tonight with dh, dd, and her friend. I'm scared of heights but talked myself to get on the ferris wheel with them at the same time the fireworks were going off. Thank goodness I had the bear to cling to. The fireworks were so close and beautiful!

I stepped out of my comfort zone and entered a flower design in the Small Standard Flower Show at the fair. The judges are certified by the State. It's the real deal! This year's theme was "At the Movies." I entered the Fright Night design that required a mass design with dried flowers and it had to be scary. Mind you, I had no idea what a mass design was and had to look it up! I just had fun with it and received an Honorary Mention - there were only 5 entries in Fright Night so essentially I received a Participation Ribbon Loopy

RE: gym, everyone has been super nice. To my knowledge, no one has laughed at me. At least not to my face. ;-)

I was self-conscious at first because I huff & puff, sweat like a pig, and get red in the face, but then I saw that happens to the fit people too. I see the younger girls working out and hope I'm providing an example of fitness at any age. If I can do it, so can they.

Happy Birthday HeidiHill!

Get up and make it happen

Wonderland, sweet pics- I love the fair.

Heidi hill- Happy happy happy birthday! Glad to hear about the 🕺🏼🕺🏼💃🏽💃🏽-ing!

Ruth, your weather posts help me know what's on the way, and, as you know, the humidity is crushing.

Went to yoga this morning and then up to school to chaperone for homecoming. My shoulder aches- perhaps from yoga class? But the humidity does seem to make everything worse. I should receive results from the bone scan Monday. I see the MO for my monthly Lupron shot. I'm pretty anxious, tbh, and even though I'm trying not to go down the morbid path, well, you know.

I went to a ymca farther from home for aqua exercise class. Was very good to be able to move thru a greater range than I can on land. My implant felt like it was floating away from my body, definitely a different density than my original!

Thanks for the ball exercise clip. I do something like that, but just move the ball from front to back. It looks like a good variation.

I'm officially 10 weeks post exchange and I can only maintain weight bearing thru my extended arms for a short amount of time. ..uncomfortable!

I have been following this thread for months. I creep along with you very active ladies. I just can't seem to get my act together. I run around like crazy and get 25,000+ steps. Prior to surgery I was attending 3 or more zumba classes a week and walking 5 miles everyday. I want to get back there. I just keep reading and following along and think you ladies are amazing! It had just been hard to get back to my routine. I need more sleep and I have my second sinus infection since I finished radiation. Again, not my normal. 2 sinus infections in less than 4 months. Makes me worry about flu season!!! This to shall pass I just needed to whine to a few people who will understand.

hi VargaDoll, we do understand. Did you know that 25,000 steps is nearly ten miles? I'd say that's GREAT!

Sorry about sinus infection, hope you feel better soon. Same to you KB870 ugh D&V. Sometimes rest is best.

2FUN it was months before I could reach items on the top shelf of the grocery store much less bear weight on my arms. Glad you found an aqua exercise class.

IMHO this is the best thread on BCO. We welcome all, regardless of age, stage, or level of fitness. I started out very slooooowly and was in awe of the more active people. It took me quite a while to get to where I am now and I still have a long way to go. Nevertheless, I persist.

2FUN, ten weeks isn't very long; time, patience, and work.......

Vargadoll, Welcome!! 25, 000 steps is pretty amazing for anyone! You will get back to your normal, but also give yourself to slow down a little and let your body catch up. Make sure that you get a flu shot this fall (after clearing it with your doctor if this is your first one post-treatment).

KB, hope you are feeling better!
