We had a nice sunny day yesterday so DH and I went on a trail hike. Today the weather will not be good so it's a good day to do weights. I have decided way too late to watch Game of Thrones, LOL, so I can do the weights while I finish season 1.

Have fun in Santa Barbara, Falconer. Ruth, glad you only got a few inches of snow. Claire, glad you found your rug and that it didn't get stolen. Welcome to Fritzmylove.

The onl spring sign we saw on the trail yesterday was these flowers blooming everywhere.

How wonderful Falconer and hope you both have a super time! Good news Claire. Wonderland, hope all settles soon - thinking of ya! Fritzmylove, you read as strong and good work. TT, taking a yin training in July and I like how it makes me feel too. Octo, good luck on packing and keeping strength and sanity intact.

Spent the day yesterday in a yurt, in a field on a yoga psoas workshop and restorative yoga included, taught by Brea Johnson, who is coming to an end of her Heart&Bones tour. Twas a early 7am, two hour drive, yet rather special to hear birds singing and rabbits hopping past the sheet-plastic windows, with a wood-fed pot belly stove for heat on a chilly, continually passing rain to sunshine April Saturday. Needless to say, was feeling rather sore last night when I made it home and teaching Pilates this morning helped, for finally, feel better. Chilling out for the rest of the day with Sunday papers, laundry, taking our old collie for a walk and later, watching who wins the Masters.

Ruth - love the area rug - gad they found it - I had one similar till a few years ago when it got infested and had to throw it out///don't remember what the little things were called or how they got there. Now I'm careful to vacuum my area rungs every week - that one was in my spare bedroom/office and didn't vacuum it often as it didn't get used much........Haven't even bothered to look for another one...

Need to get in high gear today and get out all my passover stuff to make sure I have all pots/pans, utensils and anything else I need for the week. I'll start cooking Thursday night and Friday. My Daughter #1 and SIL arrive Thursday morning and are here till the 28th. I will miss not having my other 2 kids here. I have one guest the first sedar and none the second. so 5 the first night and only the 4 of us the second night. No company for any shabbat or yom tov (holiday lunches). As usual, I'll have too much food. I told my husband that I was making brisket one night and turkey breast the other night and he wants both so there is a choice. DH and DD also want chicken soup - wasn't planning on making for the sedar as their is always too much food. Oh well. DH is smoking the brisket, turkey breast and a couple whole chickens so I don't have to cook them! Feeling a little overwhelmed because its also busy at work. I start a new maternity leave tomorrow morning two days/week.

Have a great Sunday.

Hi Ladies! This is my first post in this forum. Before my diagnosis 4 months ago, I was a very healthy, active 46 year old who loves all things outdoors. I'm a vegetarian and I teach exercise for a living. I'm finally feeling less fatigued since finishing all active treatment(radiation) nearly 3 weeks ago, so I'm back to my regular routine. Today I went for a 3.5 mile walk/jog(walk for 3 minutes, jog for 1). Felt great to get back out there! Weather here in NH is perfect--54 degrees and sunny. I'll be starting tamoxifen soon and I'm hoping and praying it doesn't affect me too badly so I can continue with my exercise! Cheers all!

Welcome, Kec1972! When I started Arimidex, one of my friends who was already on it gave me this advice, "Keep moving, keep moving, keep moving." So I did, and I believe that helped a lot with any potential side effects. A regular routine is wonderful, isn't it?!!!

I went to Pound this morning, out to lunch with a friend, and then; since it was the first day one could be outside without some sort of jacket, I ditched the errands and took the dogs for a very long walk. It's supposed to rain (not snow) tomorrow, so we are making progress weather-wise!

Jo - glad you liked your new onc

Welcome KEC

There is some crazy 18 year old girl who the FBI is looking for in Colorado who they consider armed and dangerous - she has made credible threats to repeat a "Columbine" tragedy. Reportedly she was last seen in the foothills west of Denver. She made a threat to the Colorado Department of Education. NO specific schools were named. I was in class after work when I heard about it. When I got home at 7:00 hubby showed me the video from the local news station of Jefferson County Sheriff. DH said the story was the first thing on the national news - and unfortunately, they showed video clips from the Columbine shooting 20 years ago - it wasApril 20, 1997 that changed so many people's lives forever.

All schools in the metro Denver area are closed today due to the above situation. Law enforcement was supposed to meet with school districts at 3:30, but by midnight, my school district, DPS had called off schools. I always wake up around 2:30 am to pee and checked emails and saw that schools were closed. I was still up at 5:30. My DD#2 saw me online at 2:30 am and texted me to find out why I was up and on Whatsapp. She texted me to tell me to call her when I woke up so at 5:30 she called me - we talked to for almost an hour. Over 60000 miles away she was worried about me. She wondered if I would be working on the crisis team because of this whole ordeal. She is worried that there may be other people involved with this crazy woman. She thinks schools should be closed the rest of the week and said that I would be very busy next week because of the situation. For 21, DD#2 is wise beyond her years. I'm not worried but it is unsettling - and how long do schools stayed closed?

That said, I really glad to have the day to finish getting ready for Passover. I can run errands today, get my hair cut and start cooking - all things that I would have to do after work and not have enough time. DD#1 and SIL arrive tomorrow morning. Looking forward to having them here.

Wishing everyone a great day!

It’s so scary to think that one person can force an entire city to shut down school. It makes me nervous sending my 4 and 6 year old to school every day if I let myself think about it too much. It’s clear that we have a mental health crisis happening in the US

Just got in from a brisk 2.5 mile walk around the neighborhood. It’s in the 50’s right now, and there’s a bit of a breeze, so my ears were freezing, but the rest of me was sweating. Not the best feeling 😂

What a scary situation. Made more scary by the fact that it doesn't even surprise me anymore when there is a school shooting. It could happen to any of us......and, judging from the lack of action, that is apparently okay.....but that is for another (hidden political) thread.......

It is raining (not snowing) today so we Wednesday Walkers were back inside; after which we went over to the local college for a yummy breakfast at their cafeteria (which is why so many walkers are dressed in their school colors). I am wearing a tee shirt I just bought that says, "Sunny Skies Ahead". I am going to Lunch Barre in a few minutes & Dance2Fit tonight.

The suspect has been found dead of self-inflicted gun shot wound so she is no longer a threat. School should resume tomorrow as "normal" whatever that means. As the news unfolds it appears that she was an 18 year old senior and her parents reported her as missing. I feel for her parents. Listening to the news, talking about safety is making schools safe and making kids feel safe in school. OF course those of us who work in the schools want to feel safe as well. I am teaching with a School SW later this month a two day training of crisis training - for School Social Workers and School Psychologists - not just for this type of incident but even a weather tragedy or anything else we can imagine!!! We are supposed to plan tomorrow, but I don't know if the powers to be will want us in a school. For the last month plus of the school year, I only have schools on M,T,W and TH is a variety of other things.

welcome, KEC. Glad to hear that your physical fitness is returning. It's an up and down process for many of us, so keep encouraged even if sometimes you don't feel great.

Hi Fit friends! I'm writing from Southern California where we are taking our spring break. I'm so happy to be back as I was a student at UCSB receiving my Masters in education 20 years ago. It's been a memory lane kind of visit, for sure. Yesterday we hiked 5k on intense terrain with steep elevation gains. The views were stunning. My friend has the good camera so I can't share those pics. But I did take this selfie of the blue blue blue sky and the palm trees outside our place. Happy holidays everyone.
