ok, tessu, my brain is so bad that I forgot that I told you I'd meet back here for exercise. I'm going to walk the stairs and do sit ups. Anyone else just"forget" to do stuff that's important to you???? I didn't even have chemo!

Ruth glad you got to enjoy the nice temps! It was a beautiful day here! 40* and no wind! A nice warm up!

Started my Stride challenge today. Schedule called for 30-40 min run or walk. Took advantage of the nice weather and took our dog for a walk outside after work. I still am having a hard time running outside right now...the cool air seems to aggravate my shortness of breath from chemo so I ran for 35 min on our treadmill at home and walked 5 min for cool down. Finished the day with restorative yoga.

Caught up on all the posts and love reading what everyone is doing! Saturday (Veterans Day) my town had a Veterans Day Parade. It's always inspiring to watch the veterans, queens, and bands. That afternoon I had a chilly walk/ran but loved every minute in the 45 degrees air. Today I walked/ran in nice cool air under blue sky with a light breeze. So refreshing!

Welcome a Scared and Sweetybert this is truly a wonderful group.

I had a very loonnggg trip back from Daytona, 27 hours from the time we got in the car to ride to the airport till the time I walked in my front door, I got caught up in the Orlando airport evacuation as I was the last departure of the group but I will say all the thousands of people who had to go back and be rescreened by the TSA did so with no grumbling and it was a very very long process and lots of families with young tired children who were returning from a Disney World vacation, I only saw one fight where people tried to cut in line and no one was having it.

Wonderland next year you have to come, we missed you and talked about you.

Back to the gym tonight for Athletic Training Club, I know I will feel it tomorrow!!!

Oh the joys of winter running! And 'proper' winter is not here yet...and I'm not one of those brave souls who run in subzero temps. But I push it for as long as possible. If it's dry, minimal wind and not crazy cold, I run outside with proper winter running attire (hat and mouth cover are essential for me). I've been looking for cardio alternatives for the next 3-4 months though. If anyone is into home fitness and Youtube videos, I've found Popsugar Fitness on Youtube which has really great videos that don't get boring.

All the ladies who are in the middle of chemo and exercising, great work! Don't worry about intensity or duration, as long as you're able to keep moving, even slow walking, there is a benefit. I walked a lot and did occasionally go to the gym during chemo, but I was at probably 50% capacity and used hand sanitizer obsessively!

ErenTo - I work-out at a gym - but - am considering adding some fitness videos into the mix. Except for my Sunday U-Jam class, the classes that I really do enjoy at my gym - are at difficult times (like 9:30 am on a weekday - who is able to go to that!?!). So, I do tons of stationary bike - which I also love. I am a bit shy about getting off the bike and using the strength machines...

So - yesterday's workout was great! Another sweat dripping session on the stationary bike. Was able to do an hour this time, because DD's gymnastics class went later - so - more time for me to workout!!

Just back from my lunchtime yoga class.

I'm used to my instructors blending pilates strength into the standard yoga, but her repetitive "power" movements are straight Jane Fonda!

Eren: Thanks for the youtube suggestion. I also like to walk/run outside but not on really, really cold days. It's hard for me to breathe.

Cheryl: The Orlando airport evacuation was on the news the other night. I would have be terrified if I saw the luggage smoking! Glad you made it home safely.

It's a very dark overcast day and I already walked/ran this afternoon before it gets completely dark. Now I need to mop my kitchen floor, dust, clean, etc.

Thanks Wonderland!! The instructor actually asked me after class if I liked it and I lied because but I was afraid that I would hurt her feelings! Her class is right before the U-Jam class - so - I came a few minutes late - hoping she wouldn't see me, because I didn't want to hurt her feelings by not coming back to her class!! (It's more like I'm too scared to attempt her class again!!) And, that didn't go as planned!!

Ruth - what is POUND? It sounds interesting!

I had to take the night off of working out so my legs can rest!! And, already looking forward to tomorrow's workout!!

hi all and welcome Bert! I gained 25 pounds from chemo because I ate whatever tasted good and sat well in my tummy. It took a long time but have managed to lose the chemo weight plus 15 pounds of old stubborn fat. I'd like to lose 10 more but I'm not watching the scale as much as the fit of my clothes. Just do what you can; all movement counts.

I'm off work today with a cold, courtesy of the guy in seat 17D who coughed and hacked all the way from Detroit to Madison. Ugh! He probably infected everyone on the plane.

tessu, I know you have a sore toe and glad the wound is healing but missed what kind of surgery you had.

Scared, yes it's hard but that instructor needs to know she's not helping people by shaming them in class. Please work up to your capacity, not up to her expectations. I put this link here a lot - Guidelines on Exercise for those with/at-risk for Lymphedema. https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/58/topics/801453?page=1 I will also bump the thread to the top of Active Topics for you. Please check it out. There are links to info for you and your trainers.

Copying an excerpt from the original post: "The first link is for anyone with or at risk of LE who needs some quick guidelines on safe exercise. Even if you only had a single node removed, you are at an increased risk for LE, so a lot of us need to know this information. If you want to start or resume your exercise program, this documents can give you some helpful ideas about exercising safely. Also, we hope that fitness professionals might find this document useful to give to clients who are b/c survivors.

"The second document is designed for exercise professionals like personal trainers, yoga instructors, fitness class teachers, Pilates instructors, etc. It explains Breast Cancer Related Lymphedema, and is designed to help all of them understand LE and what they need to know to provide safe exercise instruction and coaching for those of us with, and at risk for, LE. The idea is that when we start a new fitness class or start working with a personal trainer, we can print out this document and share it with them. That way they'll be aware of our concerns and the extra care we need to take. They'll be better understand why we may avoid certain exercise moves and can give us alternate moves, or why we need to go especially slowly with upper body weight training exercises. It will help them help us."

Wonderland, next year for sure!

It was the first time I have made this annual gathering, and they all made me feel so welcome, just a marvelous and diverse group of women. hbcheryl and I both caught a nagging cold while we were there (at the same time so no blame!), and mine keeps hanging on. Today is the first day I have felt better since returning. So needless to say I have not been doing much except keeping the couch company.

So I got poked, pulled and squeezed twice as much as normal. I really didn't mind, and actually learned a lot about taking a mammogram lol, but my boobs are sore today. Later in the evening, hubby and I went out to eat with a gift cert we had won at a silent auction ages ago. Dinner was yummy (braised short ribs), and then we went to listen to a bluegrass band. By the time I got home I went straight to bed, slept til early morning when I woke myself up coughing. My throat is sore from the coughing, so I had Hagen Daz for breakfast :) windy and rainy here today, so another date with my couch, and maybe a nap.

  1. 2Fun, wish I could get DD to go for PT for her ankle but she's too busy, she says. Pat, hope you feel better soon. KB, high 5!
  2. I am hurting from yesterday, probably from a half class of Body Combat, which I did after running 3K on the treadmill and doing weights. Then on to tango in the evening.
