Nats- your trip sounds amazing, what a great experience to look forward to!

Ruth-Happy Retirement! 38 years is fantastic! I have taught middle school for 13 years, love it. My father in law retired from 30 plus years of teaching high school math and for him really hit him in Aug/Sept when he wasn't getting ready to start a new year, but he is very happily retired and enjoying it, as I'm sure you will too!

30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training....I've only been working on my core and lower half because I'm a bit nervous about lymphedmema and my TEs...anyone have any advice, I would like to start some weights with my upper body, but know that I need to start out very light.

Just wanted to say how nice the pedometer is. I went to the gym today and walked a total of about 45 minutes on the treadmill, ran some small errands, went out for dinner and walked the dog in the evening. It added up to 12,000 steps for the day, which is not bad.

Bummed about weight gain on Taxol.

Walked 30 minutes after work.

That makes at least 30 minutes of exercise for the last 4 out of 5 days.

Hope it is enough to slow this weight gain train!

45 minutes on the treadmill. I will be getting company in a few minutes. DH's sister & husband are staying here the next two nights as they are doing an antique show in a nearby town Thursday/Friday (their retirement hobby). They are very nice and easy guests, so it will be fun to have them in and out the next couple days. I won't probably have time to exercise tomorrow, as they will be taking us out to dinner. Oh shucks, huh?! Wink

Cocobean, check out this excellent paper on the Step Up Speak Out website re: exercise & lymphedema.  It applies to people who have LE or who are at risk for LE (which is all of us):

Good job, Nicole!  Keep it up!

Momine, I like my pedometer because I love getting credit for something I'm already doing - walking around - as well as deliberate exercise.  BTW 12,000 steps is great!

Shovel & Sculpt yesterday, lunchtime walk today 4,425 steps = 3.54 km = 2.2 mi.

31 minutes walk today.  You all make me smile with your "shovel and sculpt".  Also makes me glad I live in a snow free zone.  Brrr!  

Mary, how cool that you got to see deer in the park at sunset.

Did a Sh'bam dance class this morning and then 3/4s of a spin class tonight, had to get off the bike early as I was heading out to dinner to celebrate a friends birthdaySealed

Pat the instructor is a major factor in spin, if there is a gym in your area that has RPM try that (it's the Les Mills spin class) it is totally cohoreographed so they can't mess it up, you start the ride easy, you do hills, mountains sprints and cool down its a great class.  Lilac my friend is from Harrogate so that's the one I've been to but also been to one in York - cream cake heavenInnocent  Mary your run sounded wonderful, hope you're weathering the storm ... and were your ears burning tonight cause we were talking about you, actually your car cause my friend is looking at hybrids so we were saying what a nice ride your car is.

All you east coasters take care and be careful shoveling and sculpting.

Badger, we live in a downtown area with parks and walking streets, plus we have 3 dogs and no car. Under those circumstances, it is relatively easy to rack up the steps.

The snow was a bust - the rain/snow line went further west than they thought, so all we had was about 2 inches of wet soggy snow followed by cold rain.  So no Shovel N Sculpt, so we took the Snow Day to do more Declutter N Sculpt - still working on cleaning out the rec room.  It's amazing how much junk you can accumulate after 20 years in the same house!  I think just one more day and we'll be ready to start prepping the walls for painting.

We did come across some old 78 rpm records that must have belonged to my mom - an entire Bing Crosby collection, including one record with Easter Parade on one side, with I've Got Plenty to Be Thankful For on the other. (Holiday Inn is one of my favorite movies.)  Also found a recording of Rosie the Riveter!  Of course we don't have a 78 player, but I'm tempted to take them to one of those audio places and have them recorded to a DVD.  I'm sure they're full of pops and clicks, but if it's not too expensive to have that done, it would be fun to hear the originals.  My mom's been gone for over 30 years now (she died of b/c) so I think it would be nice to listen to something that I know she listened to and enjoyed in her youth.  

30 minutes core exercises with stability ball this morning.
