Another day!!

Sunday, March 24, 2013


So yesterday was yesterday but today is awesome! I am sooooo impressed with myself:) After that hard ride yesterday I went with another friend today on a 50 mile ride. Stop in Tenino for a hamburger and just really enjoyed the day. I'm not too sore and not anywhere near as tired as I thought I'd be. Life is good and I have some awesome friends.

My bike and me!

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Me and my bike. The continuing saga. Nice day to ride with friends. Got bike out and tried to pump up back tire. It went flat. Stefanie to the rescue!!! Got it pumped up but not all the way. Got on it and started out. NOW it went bumpidy bump. Decided to just keep going. Very nice ride out to Rainier for Main Street cookies:) On way back decided to go back on Waldrick instead of trail. Sounded good at the time until 2 dogs came out after us. Intent on getting some meat from one of us (mostly Stefanie I think), they separated us since I was NOT going to try to go by them. Ended up calling 911 and got the Sheriff out there. They followed him down their driveway at which time we were able to reunite. Really scarey! Then we had to go up McCorkle road. Did not make it all the way up but continued on the smaller hill. Got home, took my bike to the shop and asked him to change my tire. Cool, it had a bubble in it and blew up in the shop. Ka Pow!!! Got a new tube, they pumped it up and now I should be ready for my ride tomorrow. I can hardly wait to see what my bike has in store for me:)

    Hopefully you all read about my really nice bike ride the next day. It was the NEW tire that exploded in the shop. Had a big bubble. Yesterday was uneventful and very relaxing.

    Well, at least you can say that your day wasn't boring! emoticon I'm glad that the tire tube didn't explode while you were riding your bike. I'm glad also you were able to get the police to help you get the dogs away. Hope your bike ride yesterday was a little less eventful. emoticon

    So glad the inner tube did not blow while you were riding your bike. Glad you were able to get help to get away from the dogs. Sounds like you managed to get a lot of exercise in, as well as a lot of excitement. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. emoticon

    What adventures you and your bike have! You would be burning calories from exercise AND from NERVOUS ENERGY! I hope you get to enjoy the scenery on your future rides.

New year new faces

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Just a short note to let everyone know that I am still here. Trying desperately not to spend too much time at computer. Hah! Back to biking and have found new friends to walk and bike with. This gives me more motivation and fewer excuses not to get out there and move.

Met with the oncologist last week and everything is good. A massage is coming up to take care of the rest of me.

I am truly blessed with good health and good friends. Life is good.

    emoticon emoticon news all the way around! I understand not wanting to spend so much time on the computer. emoticon More time on the computer equals less time spent moving around. I'm glad to hear you made new friends to walk and bike with. I'm really happy to hear that the oncologist said that everything is good! emoticon for the massage! You deserve it! Life is good and you are blessed to have good health and friends. emoticon emoticon

Adventure!

Monday, October 15, 2012

Pouring rain. Was going to run but....Nah! Snuggled on the couch with a hot chocolate and "Second Wind'. Read about Cami's adventures in running marathons in Panama and then Japan. I was so motivated that I got up, put on my running gear (including the "rain jacket" that doesn't even keep dry), and got in a 40 minute run. Wow. I rock:) LOL

Via Caring Bridge

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Man, am I glad that I don't have to undergo radiation therapy. I am so busy with OT and lymphedema clinic appointments plus my regular life that I don't know how I would find the time or energy. The lymphedema therapist taught me a lot of things I didn't know about taking care of my scarred breast. Working on range of motion too. Had a massage on my tied up shoulder muscles on that side today. What a relief. I think I'll get a few more to see if I can keep it released. I've begun to notice that as soon as I get rushed or tensed, my shoulders tighten up and recede into my ear lobes. LOL

20 mile bike ride yesterday was really good. I have a hard time holding back. Both therapists have told me to back off a little. Sigh. But I do want to take care of myself and not make more problems. Have a busy week-end with a conference in Chehalis on Saturday and chores on Sunday. Trying to make sure I get some exercise in too, even if it is just a short walk.

And so it goes. Life is good and the euphoria lingers. My life is filled with joy and wonderful people. Who could ask for much more than that.

Cheers.

    It was a good conference, Music Teacher's Association. But it addressed some issues that I'm working on with the OT's also. How to hold your body and be balanced. Move from your core. Etc. Some very talented students played also and I had a nice social time since we carpooled down. Now for my nap:)

    I'm glad you're doing well! I've been meaning to stop by your caring bridge page but haven't had a chance to. I know it's hard to hold yourself back and not push yourself too hard. I'm in the same position sort of with my leg. Hope you enjoy the conference this weekend!
