Doggus and I went for a brisk walk for about 30 minutes. 

Happy (belated) Birthday Mr. Coonie.

Gosh, it's been raining a lot here too.  We had a sunny Sat.

Carole, it is hard to maintain an exercise routine during active treatment.  You just have to do what you are going - start again.

 My plans for today are a lunch time walk and to go to pilates class in the evening.  After pilates class, I am going the gym and sneak in a session on the recumbant bike.

So, exercise of the fingers counts?  Yay!  I'm on the computer all day and then here at night.

My knee has been giving problems today but I still got on the treadmill.  Could only last for a mile/23 minutes but at least I moved.  Will be busy tomorrow so don't expect to get much done - but you never, never know!

Kbug--join us!  I think as long as we move and do something it's better than nothing!  

Patoo--I think it's great that you did the treadmill in spite of your knee.  Don't over do it, though!

I work today so I'm probably just going to walk the dog for my exercise today.  We walk very briskly!

Have a great day!

Sharon, I agree with you - I think this thread is a good idea.  I think it helps me to write down what I am going to do & I don't want to have to come back and say I bailed on something. 

Patoo, I hope your knee is better.

Posting for Coonie........

Hi, my name is Coonie. And I am a sloth.

I know I said I was going to ride my bike yesterday, but I didn't because, uummm, well.....there's just no excuse. I'm working today, but I will try my best to ride tonight when I get home. Sharon is right about this thread. It keeps me accountable.Wink

I agree, this thread is great.  My knee is not better and will have to get to my ortho doctor and check it out.  I can actually hear the fluid in it when I bend it.  Match that with a bad hip, same side, and there's a lot of pain depending on how I twist, turn or bend.

Have a 10-week support bc support group sponsored by two local cancer centers and tonight we did total body stretches so at least I had some activity today.  No treadmill though - not today.  The only other exercise I'll get will be climbing the steps up to bed in a few minutes.

patoo, ouch! I hope you can get in to see the ortho soon.

When I got to yoga class yesterday, I discovered that the instructor was on vacation and we had a sub. So instead of yoga, it was a swiss ball class (lots of core work). I was so tired afterwards I skipped the eliptical glider and went home,

I am climbing tonight, at the climbing gym. I will also go for my usual lunch hour walk today..

Good morning!  I never did get my dog walk in yesterday.  Wound up taking DS to karate and never got a chance to get the walk in.  

I'm planning to do a step workout this morning.  It's gloomy here today with more rain!  

Patoo--you should get your knee/hip checked soon.  I have friends who have suffered with bad knees and it is not fun at all.  I hope you are feeling better today.

Lisa--you sound like you really take on the day!  Are you sore from the core training?  

Coonie--you crack me up!  You are not a sloth!  Even being here means that you are at least thinking about it!

hehe Lorrie!! Well, I guess hearing about others exercising is better than nothing, right?Tongue out

And Noooooo, I didn't ride when I got home yesterday. It was late, I was tired, and I just KNEW I didn't need to put my poor body through that torture. I'm seriously thinking about doing it today, but it's really dark and stormy looking right now. I need to see what the weather is up to before getting out of course. Don't want to be like Dorothy and Toto and get blown away.

I promise I'll check back in later!

Hope you all have a great day!

Coonie--I'm a huge dog lover.  I just can't help myself.  I had two old dogs who passed away last year while I was still undergoing treatment.  Talk about getting kicked when you are down!  It just so happened that the golden girl that I have now was returned to a breeder and the rest is history.  I really love this dog!  So, now a year later, I am going to get a golden boy from the same breeder.  I'm a little nervous about the new puppy but the dogs make me so happy, I don't think I can not do it!
