2012 Goals modified with Prostate Cancer diagnosis: 1. Maintain healthy lifestyle (I know this is too general to be a goal). Keep weight at 220 or under. 2. Tackle the Cancer one way or another in February. 3. Get back to the gym ASAP following #2. 4. Set specific Fitness Goals after #2. 5. Ride in the June 3rd Tour de Cure...as far as I am able!
"Score" everything I eat every day, every meal on SP website. Keep Calories under 2400 everyday except Christmas and New Years...and Birthday and Passover and Thanksgiving and... Cardio 4-5X per week Resistance 2X per week. BEGIN TO DO YOGA OR OTHER FLEXIBILITY TRAINING EVERY WEEK.
You are so awesome Kathleen. There are So Many sad Cancer stories. For now I'm one of the lucky ones. For now at least, my Prostate Cancer is history; I have 2 tumors on my liver; one I was told they are not concerned about; the other caused them to send me for another CT Scan (1 week ago); still no decision on if they want me to have a biopsy or not. they are "conferencing". I should hear in the next day or so. Keep on doing the wonderful things you do. it's good KARMA!
Howard - you are off the hook! You were actually one of the first to donate to my ride! Now if you want to get your friends involved, I'd be happy to send my link! I just found out last week that a guy at one of the local bike shops was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer and it's already spread to his brain, lungs and liver. He's in his early thirties with young children. Then today I found out that another bike guy's wife was told she had stage 4 brain cancer and it's inoperable. My heart aches for my friends and makes me want to ride that much harder.
Howard - I did do the ride in about 6 1/2 hours. I had hoped to finish a little earlier this year but the wind had other ideas. It did get hot very quickly but luckily I could always find some shade. Great ride for a great cause!
Thanks so much for the goodie Howard! I needed it this week. Haven't been feeling great but I hope it was just a bug and is now out of my system. Took a 30 mile training ride for Tour de Cure today and it felt good...we finished just as the rain started.
