Ruth - LOL about winter parking! We are lost without the painted lines. And I absolutely love the puppy pictures!
IWave - so great about your recovery and continued progress. Please share what the nutritionist has to say. I always have my ears open so that I can pick up tips along the way.
Ginger - oh gosh, sorry to hear about the shingles. Maybe it was caught early and won't be so bad?
Edj3 - hope you get home without delay.
Wonderland - I love the Cookie Monster cartoon. So cute!
Runnermum - wow, running on snow and ice. I'm sure you are used to it, but that does impress me. When I lived in a northern climate, I always tippy toed across snow and ice covered walkways and I probably held my breath and was so tense.
Krose53 - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/10/191016131226.htm here is the link regarding new exercise guidelines that I think you are referring to.. The way I read it, they have lowered the amount of exercise needed for cancer survivors? That really surprises me. However, I read somewhere else (either Dr. Greger or Dr. Colin Campbell) that we need 90 minutes a day so I try to either meet or exceed that goal. I have always had the idea that if a little bit is good, more is better. So Krose53, maybe all we need is 90 minutes a week - maybe the key is that it is spread over multiple days so not too much time goes by without doing something. I am going to keep doing what I have been doing and try to improve in areas such as yoga. I just read that yoga strengthens your immune system which ties in with what IWave said.
So this morning, I did a little bit of weights, and I will go for a walk at lunch and hope to run outside in the neighborhood after work. And maybe if I say I will do a little yoga tonight, I actually will.
