S&S good to see you! Thanks Falconer, Ruth, Mary and HeidiHill (like the ducky photo) - merci beaucoup and did look up more using what you offered and found this information: https://edsinfo.wordpress.com/2015/09/14/thigh-pain-meralgia-paresthetica/

Had the MRI and the woman who administered it has attended my Friday pilates class. Anyway, I'm well rested and trying to go back tomorrow afternoon to work. Took son out when I got home for new things he needed for university, like a set dishes, cutlery, new duvet. DH has been at a race track all day using what I gave him last year for xmas; a day out driving experience, driving three different super cars. DH is a car enthusiast and hope he comes home one happy camper for the thrill of it. Off to get jamie oliver recipe chicken kievs ready to bake.

Edited to add: We just watched how awful it is...please stay safe if you are in hurricane florence path.

So I am finally back to trying to exercise regularly after meniscus repair surgery in late May with rehab, and then hand surgery in August- severed two flexor tendons. I am working with a trainer one day per week, and trying to walk and do strength training the other days. I am a former runner (hope to be able to get back to it). In my quest for different and fun ways to build/maintain my fitness I just ordered a pair of Kangoo Jumps from Amazon,. They are boots (similar looking to ski boots) that sit atop springs. I have seen you tubes with people doing group fitness classes and running with the Kangoo Jumps and it looks like so much fun. The bonus is they are supposed to reduce the stress to knees and lower back (I will let you know if this is true for me),

Anyway, today was one hour with the trainer at the gym, and hopefully later on maybe a walk.

Edited to add: I cannot wait for the Kangoo Jumps to get here!

Capecod - I had knee surgery this spring too so I feel your pain. My physical therapy is done, and I'm at the point now of getting back some muscle strength and endurance. I'm also working on active balance (while moving, jumping, etc.)with a half ball and therapy pad. Your Kangoo Jumps sound perfect for that!

It's finally not raining for the first time in days! It's still overcast and gloomy, but no rain. Hooray!! Strength training circuit at the fitness center today. No disagreements about TV channels today - everyone was glued to the Weather Channel.

Good to see you again Capecod.

Hi All! Finished staining the deck. Been walking/running. We live in the piedmont area in North Carolina and preparing for Hurricane Florence. It's coming and everyone is very nervous. We will probably get lots of rain, wind, trees down, power lines down, etc. I'm supposed to go to Hilton Head, SC next week - we'll see. My beautiful grandmother was named Florence and I hate that this monster storm is called Florence.

Thanks for the welcome back Wonderland and Twohobbies.

Walked 5 miles this morning. Hoping to get some strength training/ stability ball workout in later. Will see how it goes timewise.

I am officially 8 pounds heavier still than I was 6 months ago. Eagerly tracking and awaiting the arrival of my Kangoo Jumps. I am hoping they will be so much fun that I will want to use them all the time! Have a good day all, and for those in the path of the storm, stay safe.

Wonderland, stay safe! Mommy, congrats on seeing the effects of your workouts. Capecod, that's a lot of surgery. But looks like you have your recovery in good hands. Can't wait to hear what you think of Kangoo jumping. Nats, it's been a long haul for you, too. Glad you are bouncing back. Claire, have fun with the new shoes. 2fun, you are strong, at least inside, to do what you do. LB, just hate that those numbers are going up instead of down. What will it take to flip this around?

Got some steps in getting DD new running shoes and bras.  Now she's got her support in the appropriate places.

Cardio circuit today.

Small rant ahead: I've been reading a lot of mystery books lately- with all the rain, curling up with a good book is about all one can do! Yesterday I checked out an author I hadn't read before. I was so annoyed when I finished the book. The book kept referring to events that had occurred to the protagonist in previous books, but the book never recapped what exactly happened in those previous events. Yet the reader had to understand those previous events to understand the current book! I knowthat characters continue through various books, but usually authors give you a thumbnail description of important events in previous books if they relate to the current book. Each book should function as a standalone book - the reader should not be expected to have read all the previous books in order to understand the current book! OK, off my soapbox!

Falconer-oh no! I’m horribly reactive to poison ivy, so I know what misery you’re in. If you’re really suffering, get to your dermatologist pronto. They have prescription stuff that’s much stronger than anything you can get OTC. My dermatologist routine gives me a scrip in the spring cuz living in the woods, I always seem get into it. Also, take Benedryl. If it makes you too sleepy during the day, you can at least take it at night. Also, not sure if this is doctor approved, but you can get lidocaine creme OTC. Applying that to the rash can help stop the itch a bit, but if you have a bad case check with your dermatologist first.

2Fun...it is so hard when our students have such a hard time.....and to be assaulted stinks. I remember many, many years ago, maybe 35, I worked in a sheltered workshop and got too close to a new teen and got socked in the eye before I knew what happened. I never made the same mistake with that young man. Fortunately, it wasn't bad. I've had some elementary students who have been aggressive - kicking, hitting, biting etc.

Short on steps that past 2 days. Yesterday, DD#2 and I went to see the Sound of Music on the big screen. It has been my favorite movie since it came out in 1965. So much fun. Today, I had to pick up DH at the airport so no walk after work....Got to get back to my 15K steps.

DD#2 leaves on Sunday to go back home to Israel. It has been a wonderful month with her. She is so much fun to hang out with. Gd willing, I'll go see her during winter break.

Monday I have my 6 month check up with my onc.....

Good morning all-

Natsfan, great news on your dexa scan! Heidihill- so glad dd has all the right support!. 2fun, so sorry for you for the incident at school. Also it breaks my heart for the student and their family. I hope you are feeling better.

Got my Kanga Jumps late yesterday, but had company coming for dinner so was not able to use them. Did a workout video this morning that I found on You Tube (an hour long) and it was so much fun. I did a lot of modifying because it was hard and I was trying to stay balanced (good for the core). Interestingly at the end of the video we did lying down legs lifts and other strengthening exercises with the boots on. It was a great workout and I am happy. The boots are really comfortable, and I did not feel any stress on my knees and lower back. The instructors make it look really easy-- believe me it is not. I am looking forward to getting better at it. Anything that is different and fun to spice up a workout is good.

So I just walk for now, I will deffinitely add some toning/yoga/pilates later. Oh, and I try to do some part of my usuall steps quite brisk.

Hi Everyone! So far we only have gusts of wind from Hurricane Florence. I live in the piedmont area of NC. Her course prediction has changed and as of right now, we will see the worst starting tomorrow. Yesterday we picked up my dh's 96 year old aunt to stay with us until the storm is over. She lives by herself and is amazing. Full mental capacity, gets around good, excellent appetite. I want to be her when I grow up!

My SIL's mother lives in New Bern, NC which is getting hit hard with flooding. Last Monday her mother (who lives by herself) had a pace maker put it and was in the hospital for 2 day. Thank goodness my SIL (who lives in my town) brought her mother back here to be safe (at least safer).

Stay safe everyone!
