I have been taking it easy on the exercise front, doing lots of walking but still doing some classes that don't trigger it like Body Combat and the bike, I've figured out it's dancing that messes with my sciatica or back or whatever hurts on my right side, thankfully I have my doctors appointment next week and to top it off I had a pedicure and they cut my nail so short that I've ended up with an ingrown toenail and it hurts like heck when I have closed toe shoes on, luckily it's still nice enough that I'm in flip flops during the day - I am really going to make use of my 15 minutes next week my poor doctor isn't going to know what hit him.

LB I am going to make you jealous, very jealous (but not really) next thursday I am going to take a class with Diana but she's not coming for Flow she's coming for Pump, it's only one day one class plus Combat with Reagan, they have announced the next big event is in Anaheim next June so they are probably coming for a planning meeting.

I am loving the diversity of women going to the House next week, hopefully things can get done, I too voted early and the one thing I would love to happen is that Propositions be written in plain English, I spent so much time doing research but I know a lot of people don't and just vote No if they don't understand and some No's really meant Yes and Yes meant No, so darned confusing.

Last night did a Body Combat class.

lilac and cheryl- in Miami we had so many propositions which were deliberately written to confuse individuals. And what really ticked off a lot of Voters some of these propositions had three or four issues combined into 1 proposition that one had nothing to do with the other. So if you wanted to vote no on two of them and yes on the other two you couldn't you had to either choose a no or yes on each proposition. They will never write the propositions in plain English.

Spend most of morning for service to my car. It needs $1800. repair. Don't know whether to fix or replace. It's only 10 years old with 125,000 miles but I see the writing on the wall for repairs beginning to start. Most would say repairing is cheaper but its also a soft-top convertible, not the best car to drive June/July/August in the lightning capital of America.

Have new 'job' for about 4 weeks while a friend recovers from knee surgery she had today - walking her dog every afternoon (my sister walks him mornings) so that was my exercise for today.

Patoo it is so nice to hear that positive note from someone on annastrozole. Thank you! Do you take your pill in the morning or night. I find myself struggling with pain at night and there for keeping me awake. I was just curious if I switched it in the morning if I wouldn't have that happen at night when I'm trying to sleep. I've been taking it at night since July and other than the first couple of months the only side effect I have are joint pain and insomnia at night. I forgot to take it the other night and woke up in a complete panic. The pharmacist told me not to worry about it it stays in your system for a couple days. Suggested I take a half a pill and then to take a whole one the next night. I did notice however I had more energy that day and I did sleep with less pain the night I forgot the pill.

Finally, coming up for air after a week of work and running around. To answer a couple of questions, I took anastrazole in the morning along with my vitamins to get it over for the day. I was glad when the five years were done though fared just fine.

On the teapot front, I only have 2 at the moment. My family's silver one which I like to get out every now and then and have a proper tea, often with homemade scones, and the Alessi that I just got. It's super-modern and very functional. No burned fingers, and it does a good job of keeping the tea from getting cold too quickly.

I have been enjoying the bread from my bread machine immensely. Need to make another loaf, but that will be after the Rillettes de Tours which I want to make today. Have been promising my Wine Bar friend, so hopefully will have some to take in tomorrow. I got the belly of pork during my trip into Seattle on Wednesday.

I am loving my new hairstyle which is a slightly longer version of what I have been wearing since my hair grew back post chemo. I was wearing one of my hats yesterday which looks much better with a bit more hair peeking out underneath. So does my new ski hat which came yesterday, replacing the useless replacement for the one that was lifted in the ski heist last winter. Just goggles, and I shall be done. (Still need to replace my hiking boots with separated soles.)

My plan for today is to do a run in the sunshine, and then I'm cycling with a friend tomorrow. I think it will warm up and not be icy which is always a worry when the temps are around freezing. Hopefully, the water will have receded so we can do the entire route with no cycling through water-covered roadways. It's so glorious here now in the sunshine as the mountains now have snow-covered peaks.

LIFE1963, I take it in the morning. If you have trouble sleeping that is a problem in itself as it can then make your whole day miserable. Try it in the morning, as you take that little sucker and go on with your day. No time to think about aches if you are on the go and if you can't sleep, great, you then can drive! (don't mind me, I also have trouble being serious).

Doggie walk today, though cut short because or rain. Got called back for tomorrow to help supervisor of elections staff, and other volunteers, sort thousands of ballots in preparation for the recount in my county. What a messup our voting system is countrywide. So will try and pop in a DVD tomorrow evening if not too wiped out. Otherwise, hours of Netflix, Madame Secretary catchup, in my immediate future.

Good morning and happy Saturday. It's so sunny outside right now BUT it's only 22 degrees (F). We have an expected high of 31 today. Yesterday we got about an inch of snow but most of it melted already. I didn't go to exercise yesterday because hubby took the day off and we did projects around the house. I like the idea of walking and getting vitamin D that Wonderland mentioned above, so my plan is to bundle up and get out there. We still need to put our patio furniture away and cover up our A/C units (we put tarps on them every winter). Have a great weekend everyone.

Also, has anyone here tried dry brushing your skin? I've been reading alot about it and am going to watch some youtube videos on how exactly to do it. You take a natural bristle brush and very gently brush over your skin (brush and skin are dry). It's supposed to help rid dead skin cells but also help your lymphatic system eliminate toxins. You brush toward your heart. Then you're supposed to shower and lotion up. I tried it a few times and my skin does feel nice, but it's probably just because of the lotion. I need to read more on it but some of the articles are from many years ago. Not sure if this was a fad or if it actually works. Just wondering if you've tried it. I searched this site and didn't see anything. But if you google "dry brush skin" there's lots.

I think the Clarisonic brush works on that principal. They were all the rage a few years ago. I have a grit exfoliator, and I use a daily scrub. Because who wants to walk around with a dead top layer? There is a reason that the facial parlors stay in business. Because you really do look better afterwards.

Which reminds me that I could do with a bit of pampering at home. 

Off in a bit to meet a friend for cycling. It's only a few degrees above freezing this morning, so I will need to dig out my ski gloves and wear a parka today. Too chilly for my cycling jacket.

Getting out in the elements and exercising also gives the skin a major boost, so really important. This is on top of the other benefits.

Congratulations on the new baby in the family, Jo! And what a pretty name.

I have heard of brushing but have never done it. My advice is that if it feels good, do it! Happy

It was 9 degrees this morning with a brisk wind sending the windchill below zero (which negates any vitamin D benefit of being outside......to me anyway!). And we are supposed to get 3 inches of snow tonight. ARGH! I am inside for at least awhile.,,,,or all winter, depending on what the weather decides to do.

I went to an Early Bird Yoga class this morning and stayed for a class called Strength. Interval Training. Very hard, but good too. We are going to a concert tonight, so that should be fun.

Happy Saturday!

We are expecting snow this afternoon here in Northern New Mexico so I am going to head out for a long walk soon to try and get back in the groove.

Rachel, sorry about the bad air out in California. It is one thing I admit I don't miss. The air quality here in New Mexico is great. So, I have no excuses for not walking, right?

Got hit with a bug last week so spent most of the week snuggled in bed or on the sofa, but feeling better today so I’m off to the gym in a few minutes. A bear visited overnight and pulled down a large decorative flag I had on a wrought iron pole. Why??? There’s no food on the pole at all - just the flag. I suspect it was one of the cubs just playing - we’ve seen them bat my hanging plants around before. At least we now know why Mikey (our min pin)was looking out the window and growling in the middle of the night.

Hi ladies,

I had lumpectomy with 8 sentinel nodes removed on Oct 26th, and my boob is still pretty swollen. On follow-up doc said it is seroma and they drained some fluid last week but still pretty swollen. Thing is I am itching to go back to my Orange Theory classes and I feel like the more I move the more it will help with fluid reabsorption into the body. I am thinking of going today for first time, 17 days after surgery.

Do you have any experience going back to somewhat vigorous exercise with a swollen breast?

Thanks!

Fun Christmas crafts, Runner!

What a sweet baby, Jo. I hope they live nearby so that you can soon get your hands on her!

Glad you are feeling better, Nats. Better wear your 'bear bells' when you go out!

Hi Nomaddd. I'd get a clearance from the doctor before going back to 'vigorous exercise'. As much as it drives one crazy to be sidelined, if you go back before your body is ready you might end up slowing down healing even more (I know that is not what you want to here!).

Well, DH who has a bad knee that should have already been replaced, started to feel pain and hardness behind it. He went in and found out that he has a blood clot (which freaked us out since that is what his sister just died from). So now he is on blood thinner, elevating & icing his leg, and banned from exercise except just walking around for now. As he exercises like a bat out of hell, he is not at all happy with the forced inactivity (I just gave him the speech I just gave Nomaddd ). Yikes!

I'm going to Zumba tonight & will probably do a little ab work.

Welcome Nomaddd! I would definitely talk to your surgeon before returning to exercise. I developed a pretty bad hematoma following a MRI biopsy. I didn't run or exercise for about 2-3 wks following the biopsy but was pretty cautious as we needed to reduce the swelling and have it to heal quickly so we could move forward with my lumpectomy. Following my lumpectomy & SN biopsy I didnt run for 2 wks but was good to go after that! Both times I saw my surgeon before restarting running and workingout.

Ran 3miles outside and rejoined my old gym today to mix things up this winter. Heading out to meet a friend for Abs, Back & Booty class in a bit.
