Not much walking yesterday or will be today :(

We made it after much stress, delayed flight ( 1.74 hours) out of Newark because of lightening strikes - PCR and serology testing upon arrival - husband's results are back and he is out of quarantine - still waiting on mine. DD#2 joined us last night. The original Airbnb we rented was a dump, guy was very rude, so we found another place (more $, bigger and 1000 times nicer) and left. Hoping Airbnb will refund our money. Owner of the dump said we were spoiled Americans and it wasn't an Airbnb but his apartment. So why was it listed on Airbnb!!! DD and husband will go out and get Shabbat dinner and whatever else we need and I'll enjoy reading my book. Not going to stress about it. Tomorrow we may go relax on the beach. Sunday we take DD back to her apartment - studying for finals and we head south for 2 days and she will going us again next week-end.

Have a great week-end.

Karen, enjoy the beach and the visit to DD! Hope you get your money back.

We've had some flooding here but under control unlike tragedies in Germany and elsewhere in Europe. Watched a horsejumping event yesterday, then did some sightseeing with a visitor. Am heading out on my bike on paved roads today so as to avoid fallen trees, mud, puddles and whatnot in the forest,

Still keeping steady with the weights and elliptical. Did a weights break at noon today, then a 45 minute walk after dinner to enjoy the cooler temps. My lower back seems to have reboundedfrom strenuous hikes on vacation.

Diagnosed at 56. Did active surveillance in clinical trial + Tamoxifen for 6 months, cryoablation in 02/21 due to DCIS progression. Stopped Tamoxifen, per provider's ok - turned prediabetic, poor responder. Weighing AI options.

Hi Everyone! We haven't mowed the yard in 2 and 1/2 weeks. It's been so dry. It did rain some Sunday and yesterday so we mowed today. Sweat, sweat, sweat. DH got stung 9 times by some type of ground bee. Not sure if they were yellow jackets. He's feeling the stings tonight!

I'm back to wearing my mask inside buildings. Unhappy with people who are not getting vaccinated, including my BIL and niece. Sigh.

Wonderland, yes this has just knocked the wind out of me. I never realized how important the non-dominant hand/thumb are. I'm running but carefully as I sure don't want to trip and fall.

It's super muggy here, and we're in for dangerous heat starting Friday through next Wednesday. I got in 4.6 miles today, I've been walking on the non-running days since I can't pick up weights.

Edj, sorry you are having to deal with yet another setback. It must be so frustrating.

Biked at least 3 hours having gotten a litte bit lost following a trail where river banks were overflowing in a number of places and trees had fallen, so kept having to take detours. Also walked with some friends along a lake outside the city. I just read that melting glaciers have added 1000 lakes to Switzerland's landscape. Pretty soon we'll be like the Finnish Lakeland,

Ruth - if I could put a "heart" on your Walking Wednesday posts, I would (too much Facebook!). I would love to assemble a group to walk with and do a bit of socializing, but I have not figured out a workable way to do it, yet.

Your neighborhood reminds me of Northern Ohio and Michigan - maybe it's the architecture and the well-kept lawns. I have very fond memories of those places.

Like most of you, it's hot, humid, and hazy here. I didn't even leave the house. Ds had a 2 day job near us so he spent the night. He gave me some little black stones his friend had picked up in Charleston so I decided to paint them for his friend. The turtle shell stone is unique bc it's tall, not flat. It had to be painted as a turtle. Ds's friend's name is Jonah, thus the whale. This is my mental exercise for the day.

I went to the gym yesterday to lift weights and walk on the treadmill. I walked this morning before work - wish I had more time in the morning because the temps are the best then. Today, I will take a steamy walk at lunch and then MAYBE swing by the gym again after work.

I am loving those animal stones, as well! And now I have that song about Jonah and the whale stuck in my head. :)

I am...trying to just keep putting one foot in front of the other. I'm just walking my dog...every morning, and now most nights. Perhaps it's a mercy that one of the podcasts I usually listen to in the morning on walks has been glitching, because it makes me put on music instead, and then I can dance around when my dog decides she just has to sniff in one place for a while. I'm pretty sure I'm burning more calories that way. I'm also pretty sure my neighbors think I'm nuts if/when they are up that early and look out the window.

Yesterday I got out on a 16 minute walk without the dog slowing me down, and with my kiddo biking alongside/around me in circles -- he just learned to ride a bike a week ago, so that is very exciting for both of us! I am looking forward to hopefully being cleared to ride with him after my reconstructive surgery in September!

After avoiding it for a few weeks because I was worried about what the results would be, I went and had blood drawn today so we can see if there is any change in my too-high cholesterol, blood sugar, etc., numbers. *fingers crossed*

Saltmarsh, congratulations on your new bike rider. I remember how exciting it was when my DS first learned to ride his bike. So much fun!

GoKale, Bruno & I walked early, and not very long (he drank a liter of water when we were done). I am going to have to dance around the house with Marshall Fitness for the rest of my steps because it is too darn hot & humid to do anything else outside.

Here's me & my partner-in-crime; born to be wild!

Went to the gym yesterday with my husband to lift weights and walk on the treadmill. Saturday night we walked down to the neighborhood swimming pool . We love to go in the evening because it isn't crowded usually. While did some swimming, floating in the pool and looking at the darkening sky is quite peaceful.
