edj: LOVE your picture! And how cool that the company will be using your review. You look Fabulous!
GoKale: Thanks for compliment. Sometimes I feel 65, sometimes I feel 25, and sometimes I feel 95.
M0mmy: Nugget is precious!
Ruth: Good picture of WWW. Looks cold!
TT: Love the Outer Banks. Have fun next week.
Pat: How is your friend's husband?
Minus Two: Your book must be captivating for you to miss your walk. Only missing 7 days of walking in 6 months is impressive!
cm2020: Welcome! Here's my exercise story: I'm 65. Was active in high school and college with everyday activity. My weight stayed stable. It's when I started my job after college and packed on pounds that I knew I had to get more active. I joined the Y and started taking aerobic dance classes and floor exercise classes. Loved the classes! Felt strong, lost the weight and was able to maintain a good weight for me. So for many years I took high impact aerobic dance and low impact aerobic dance classes plus I scheduled in walking. When my children were born I continued taking classes and walking with the kids in a stroller. Then at some point I stopped the classes but continued with my fast walking with a little running thrown in. Plus, I do yard work. Lots of push mowing and other thing in the yard!
I'll add this: I did chemo in the winter months and I mainly walked in the house. Just didn't want to get sick. Radiation was during the summer and I was able to walk outside until it became too hot. I had a lot of fatigue during the last 3 weeks of the tx so I stopped until energy slowly returned.
With all this being said, I walked/ran today in gorgeous weather which motivated me even more. Love a good, healthy sweat.
