welcome back Claire and way to go Joy!  Marian, hoping today is a better day for you.

90 minutes walking yesterday - did my regular 2.5 mile route to side one of an old mix tape, then (like you Nicole) was invigorated by exercise and wasn't ready to stop.  So I thought WWRD?  Flipped the tape over and did the route again to side two.  Temptations, ZZ Top, Maria Carey, Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine, and some classic Count Basie (Shout and Feel It).

Started today peacefully with an hour of yoga & meditation and will walk later.  Nice & sunny but still 20 so will wait for the balmy 30's.  Making fish curry for supper.  See Wheat Belly thread for recipe.  Keep moving ladies!

WHAAA! We are under another winter storm watch here for tonight and tomorrow....seriously, we are out of storm days and I will probably never be able to retire because I will be spending the rest of my life making up all the days we missed this year!

OK, end of rant.

Did an hour of toning, spent two hours writing Easter cards to all my old aunties, uncles, nephews, nieces and assorted relatives/friends, next on my list is a bunch of paperwork for school. I am making a yummy crockpot pork chops with gravy and yams recipe. I will make mashed potatoes to go with, as it is a 'comfort food' kind of a day!

Marian, glad you are feeling better.
Claire, sounds like a great trip and I love hearing about the spring flowers blooming, means it will get here sooner or later...hopefully sooner.
Misswim, geez! Hang in there girl, you have been through the wringer lately, impressed about yoga and skiing...keep it up and things will get better!

Hello, everyone. I am new to this thread and I hope you will forgive me if I don't read it all!

So here is my fitness/non-fitness story: I gained weight after cancer thanks to Lupron, Tamoxifen, and the fact that every bloody time I finally got into a great routine at the gym I needed another surgery for breast reconstruction or something or other. I have a pot belly that I loathe and shopping is depressing.

Losing weight and being fit is part of my lifestyle goal to help prevent recurrence - that is probably my prime motivator, with vanity reasons coming a close second. 

I am no longer on Tamox. or Lupron. I was only 10 percent er-positive and 1 percent pr-positive, so sometimes I think of myself as a triple neg-er. I like muscle building (weight bearing exercise, as you all know, is recommended for triple negs) and hate endurance and am too ditzy to play group sports, so being a gym rat suits me perfectly. I happen to belong to the best club in town, so I have my pick of machines, classes, etc....

I am about to embark on week 3 of an intermediate muscle building workout plan that I found on the web. Here is the page: You can create a free account and follow whatever workout routine suits your goals and needs. It is the site attached to my favorite fitness magazine, Muscle & Fitness Hers. I love quick, high velocity bursts of energy and strength. I feel soooo relaxed and de-stressed afterwards.

Anyway, I am holding my feet to the fire for this one. No surgeries scheduled, so no excuses! The program I am following goes on for four months, I loathe my bugs bunny belly, and I want to regain the body I had when cancer first gave me the chance to go for those wonderful b-cups for the price of a co-pay.

I am glad to find this thread.

So here is my accountability for today: I did go to club, did legs, biceps, triceps, abs and some stretching. I have to follow this plan five days per week.

I blame all typos on my bipolar spell checker! :-)

Athena: Welcome! So glad you have joined us. I like your dedication. Thanks for sharing your link - I plan to check it out.

misswim: Oh no - not shingles! So sorry! Hoping you start to feel better SOON!

Mariane: Yea! No more nausea. Too cool about the bald head eagle family.

Good evening ALL! I haven't posted in awhile but I've been keeping up my exercise: walking/running at the park or "walking" with Leslie via tape. DD was home this past week for Spring Break and she left to go back today. I already miss her. Hoping ds comes for a visit this week. 

Have a great week everyone!

misswim - OMG shingles?  Sorry!  Glad you still managed yoga & skiing though.
