LOL, Sharon!

 I'm from Massachusetts.  It's getting cooler here and very colorful.  We had some high winds yesterday which caused pine cones to fall everywhere.  You could see them hanging on the very tops of the pines just waiting for the fall winds to come.  Whew!  

I love the fall.  It makes me want to be outside and also want to cuddle inside.  Love it!

Ya'll are making me jealous with maple trees,  cool breezes, pretty fall colors. It's sooo hot here today but I think by the weekend it's supposed to be 20 degrees cooler.

My legs are having spasms!!! They say, "what's going on coonie"............ooouuccchhhhhh!!

So proud of you all keeping it going. During and right after chemo, I really never thought I would EVER have energy again. It's such a blessing to be able to feel almost normal:)

Goodnight all!

Hi girls!  I did NOT workout today.  I had to work this morning and then go for my 6-month mammogram.  Hate it!  It stresses me out so bad and since I have a permanent hematoma, it's excruciatingly painful.  But, it went well and I was sent on my way!

It's beginning to rain here too!  I think walking around Walmart for 45 minutes will qualify!  Housework definitely qualifies as exercise.  Sometimes, I think I get a better workout doing housework than anything else!

I love this thread!

My arthritic knee has forced me off the treadmill, but I did 10 minutes on the upright stationary bike, 20 on the recumbant.

Awesome September!  Welcome to the thread!

That's great that you've found a way around the arthritis.  My brother moved to a recumbant bike after he had knee surgery.  He gets a great workout from it with no stress on his joints!

Okay, haven't done any "real" exercise for a couple of days, just been getting home late each night and can barely move much less workout.  But tomorrow will be washing huge windows for an elderly church member so that will count.  Should be home early evening so may be able to hit the treadmill if I'm not wiped out.

HI Girls!  This is a great thread!  I started walking with my husband a few years ago since we got our wonderful golden retriever George and he needs those walks.  We get up every morning at about 5:15 AM during the week and walk about 4 miles (about an hour a day). We also walk on the weekends but at least we can sleep in!!! I really should start doing my step aerobics/weight training again but I just haven't been motivated.  This thread has me inspired though!!  It's gorgeous here in Oregon although the mornings have been cold (in the 30s).

Sharon51 - a gal after my heart!

I washed windows, in and out on Saturday so hopefully that counts.  Have not done anything that can be measured for days.  Hope to get back but kind of busy working days and activities evenings the next 3 nights.  We'll see.  At least I'm thinking about it and, for me, thinking counts as exercise!

Sharon - Love it. I did the same (except for the cooking part - I just ate).

Patoo - yep, thinking about exercise is definitely exercise.

Ran twice last week - 2.65 miles on Tuesday (I think it was Tues.) and 3.00 miles on Thursday - then did 3-mile walk for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer on Saturday. Did my squats and girly pushups this am. Tonight I PLAN on running at the gym.

This thread (and the other - called Motivation) is helping with my motivation.

Ohhhh now!! Ya'll are making me look bad! Didn't do anything yesterday and so far nothing today either. I did ride my bicycle about 5 miles Saturday and 4-wheelers about 20+ miles. My 4-wheeler is not power steering, so I got a good upper body workout Wink

The weather is soooo yucky here today......raining again and humid! Would somebody do extra for me today and I'll pay you backTongue out

Hi girls!  

OMG!  Mumayan, your cat looks like I feel after the wedding this weekend!  LOL!

I have done nothing about exercise since Thursday.  I know I should have this morning but I'm still too tired from the whirlwind weekend!

My birthday is tomorrow!  Hurray!  How grateful I am to be celebrating another birthday!

As tempting as that cake looks, I am doing  my best to resist the siren call of sweets.

I am going to pilates class tonight; then to the gym to use the eliptical glider.  There is a storm due in tonight and it is covercast and gloomy outside today so I am skipping my lunch time walk.
