well, got some bonus exercise today.  At lunch break at my conference went for a ride on the St Charles Streetcar...and had timed it to return in time for my first afternoon session.  Well 2 miles out from the hotel, the streetcar stopped and said, last stop, there was a house fire further along the route and they couldn't proceed. All good thoughts to that family in harms way, but Surprise!, had to hoof it back to the hotel.

Trying to stay ahead of New Orleans treats either by intention or accident! Happy Tuesday. TT

Octo, sounds like you are making an excellent recovery!

TT, have a Bananas Foster for me!

Well, the snow stopped, the wind went down, and the sun came out......so everyone shoveled out and went on with life. I did a bunch of errands and took the puppies for a snow walk, which they thoroughly enjoyed! I am off to POUND in a few minutes.

Octo - sounds like recovery is going well!

trm - New Orleans is a fun town - my son lived there for 5 years, so we visited a lot - plus he had the local knowledge - if you haven't already, try frenchman street some evening for some good music. Another fun place is bacchanal, an outside wine and cheese bar with music - not walking distance from the quarter, but definitely worth the trip.

Classical stretch this morning, then on to delivering meals on wheels at lunchtime.

Octo, yay on PT progress.

tessu, Happy Finnish Independence Day! I will celebrate belatedly by going to the sauna tomorrow.

Did some shop and sculpt. Am supposed to have 2 rest days before a check up tomorrow. Done. No alcohol the night before. Too late. No breakfast tomorrow. I have been skipping dinner but this means I should have dinner tonight. I hope I'll survive the EKG (one of the tests). Will update with results tomorrow.

Good luck with the tests, Heidi. Yes, you better eat dinner tonight or you will be famished!

WWW walked at the local Civic Center & had a potluck & white elephant gift exchange. December 6th is the Feast of St. Nicholas, the patron saint of children.....since we are former teachers (so, presumably like children) and we all like feasts, it seemed like a good holiday for us to celebrate!

Heidi- good luck with the tests. I hope all goes well.

Mommyof2 sorry to hear of your cold.

Ruth- love the festive wear!

Octo- thinking of you as you recover.

I've been lurking and reading posts, but haven't been awake late enough to put anything out there. It's been a tiring couple of weeks for no other reason than I teach eighth grade and it's December. I've upped my yoga level as you know but downgraded my running. So I've been walking on the treadmill the last couple afternoons. Here's what I've come to after watching the George Harrison documentary that's on Netflix:

As a girl I loved Paul's boyish good looks, then turned toward John's rebellious side as a young woman, and now, middle aged, all that makes sense is what George was- yogi, peacemaker, friend. As an old lady will I find Ringo to be my man? Anyway, I enjoyed the documentary very much, as it made the dreadmill less dreadful.

I started in like gangbusters as usual at PT today, did the stationary bike no problem and enthusiastically beat my time/distance from Monday, but then the moment they had me doing exercises that involved my hamstring it (and I) all fell apart! It all hurt like hell (not just the burn I expect, but pain), and at one point I got a strange phantom pain that felt like someone was poking me with a hot stick in the hamstring, even though no one was touching it.

Sigh. The PT folks conferred, and decided that I was done exercising for the day. They gave me a very gentle massage, iced me, reassured me that it was probably just an irritation from overdoing things, and a hiccup in recovery, and sent me home with instructions to elevate my legs a lot for a day or two and to try not to do too much. Ok, frustrating, but I can do that. Immediately emailed hubby to warn him he'd be cooking dinner...and now I am on the couch feeling sorry for myself. Because I can't exercise! How weird is that! (not weird to all of you, I know...)

This too, will pass...right?

Hugs.

Tessu, if you stick to it, I think you will get back in shape pretty fast. I was surprised how quickly it came back for me after taking 6 weeks for the hysterectomy recovery. I would say that I am nearly back to 100% (of where I was beforehand).

I did some pilates at home, next I am going grab the puppies to meet up with a friend & her dog to walk in the park,and later I am going to Wonder with some friends. I already went once, but it is worth seeing again. If you get a chance, be sure to go to this movie. Every child, and every adult, in the world should see it!!!!

As it turns out I am pretty healthy except for low white blood cell counts (leukocytes and neutrophils) which is par for the course for me. They had a lot of trouble getting my blood though and had to do it with ultrasound assistance! I have another test (blood lactate) to absolve next week which will guide me in using heart rate monitoring for running. EKG stress test (on stationary bike) went well so I probably won't get a heart attack on the treadmill. I am determined to do a 10K next year, which was my New Year's Resolution for 2017. I did manage to reach 5K more times than in past years so not a total loss. LB, your sis is inspiring!

Exercise has been mostly classical stretch and Christmas chores. Yesterday I had my last visit with my breast surgeon. I absolutely love her, and in one way sad to be leaving, but I also told her I hope to never need to see her again!

My DIL is an Oncology fellow at NIH, and right now she is at the National Breast Cancer conference in San Antonio. My onc likes a 7 year protocol for AI's, but being up on the latest research, my DIL wants me to do 10. Well, she texts me from the conference "Consensus at the national breast cancer conference is that 10 years of endocrine therapy is not needed and may be harmful (fractures), and even 7 years as compared to 5 may not be needed". I've done 6 years (2 tamoxifen, 4 arimidex), I have a bone density scan next month and if it shows significant loss I may just stop alltogether. Love that my DIL cares about me so, and I find it so ironic that she is specializing in breast cancer research. When I was diagnosed she was still in med school and just had started dating my son.

2FUN, I once read that however long you were in 'active treatment', it takes that long again to get back to 'normal'; I would say to double that amount of time. I really pushed myself to keep active during and after treatment, but I would say it took me about a year to even start to feel like I was moving forward (physically and emotionally) and two years before I really, really felt great. Keep at it, even when you don't feel like it, and know that it is going to take time.

Yea, for the good checkup, Heidi!

Pat, nice to have someone on the inside to advice you, and VERY nice if you can be done with the anti-hormonals! I did well on Arimidex so was surprised how much better I felt once I was done with them.

Those with snow in the forecast, I feel your pain. Shovel and Sculpt time. Scared

I subbed today, just got with Zumba (which I probably negated by eating a cupcake......some middle school girls were having a get-together at the fitness center, when I stopped by after class to say hi, they gave me one).

I am now off to a basketball game!

Hi ladies!

Great job to all! You are all very motivating!

Not such a great week for getting my workouts done. Did manage to hop on treadmill and get a nice 40 min run in today after work. Plan to get a couple more workout a in this weekend so the week is not a total loss. Feeling a bit blah and lazy this week and haven't had much of the Christmas spirit. We lost our sister in law to pancreatic cancer in Oct. It's our first Christmas without her and I think for the first time in months I have actually started to think of what not only myself and my family have went thru this past year but also everything that has happened with my sister in law. She was diagnosed a year ago this week. Everything happened so fast. I am feeling a little overwhelmed and it's hard to get the Christmas spirit. Some friends and I helped deliver gifts to families in our area who are in need a little help this season last night. Helped bring me out of my funk a little last night. With this same group of ladies, we also adopt a family from the area women's shelter each Christmas and buy gifts for the family so next week we will get together and bring those gifts to the shelter. And myself, husband and kids will be ringing the bell for the salvation army next week too. Hoping these little acts of kindness will continue to remind me of the reason for the season and help get me in the Christmas spirit a little more.

I start radiation on Monday. Scheduled for 6 1/2 weeks..28 treatments +5 boosts. Really ready to get this part done and over...seems so stinking long.
