    Woot - 2 hours of paddleboarding, did about 5.06 miles with some slow paddling through a shallow mangrove tunnel to get to a secluded lake. All in all a good workout - prep for our 4+ mile race next week.

    Got on the scale this morning and was below 140 finally! All in all a good day so far!

    Happy Thursday!
    I plan to go to a body pump class today during lunch.
    Even though, my work schedule is a little hectic right now, I am trying to keep my workout schedule.

    My 40s are in the rear view mirror for me. I spent the latter part of my 30s surviving breast cancer and raising 4 children. When my 40s arrived I was so happy to be alive and yet, those 10 years were the most unhealthy. It makes me so sad to think of that time wasted. I feel so strong today, mind, body and spirit... I dont want to regret my 50's. I am excited everyday when I look in the mirror and see that woman emerging that I remember myself being. It makes me cry a little. So, I am glad to hear voices here from my peers...hopefully all experiencing similar feelings of celebration of all that we can be and hope to be and were and are and all those things! My girls actually get embarrassed by their mom these days.... i think nothing of dancing like I am having a seizure!!! woot woot!!!. Peace peeps!

    My mother finished her chemo last year. I am happy to say she is also breast cancer free!
    The one thing she told me was to always take care of yourself.

    You are a survivor. A strong, body and mind. Look at everything your body has endured....and you are still here. :)
    Those years are not wasted. They are a chapter of your life that has ended. Now you are beginning a new chapter in your life. Enjoy the Awesome experience.

    Thanks! Just keep up all the good work and you will get there! This is definitely a marathon and not a sprint.

    Hoping to get some gardening done (have some plants that are wilting until I get them in the ground) and then the house cleaned today. May have to settle for the gazelle machine instead of paddleboarding since we're into summer weather with typical afternoon showers. But I know I'm paddling tomorrow morning with one of my friends.

    A little pooped after last nights HIIT class. I am too amped up to sleep after it! It was a lot of running with tabata segments mixed in. My running felt really good so I'm feeling better about my 10K on Sunday

    Back, biceps, and abs for me this morning.

    Congrats on you PR @narak_lol ! Who says we can't still hit 'em?!

    Chest and yoga today. Watched the Giro di Burnaby last night. 45 laps of 1.2 km averaging 44.3km/hr! One of my wifes coworkers had qualified for it and got dropped 11 laps in and had to resign. He averages about 13k a year on the bike. Unbelievably fast. Big difference between my roides and those.

    Happy Friday everyone!

    Today I ran on the treadmill for 50 minutes (3.8 miles, yes I am slow). It felt good. I kept wanting to do "5 more minutes!"

    Woot, 2+ hours of gardening in 90+F heat. At least the flowers are planted before the afternoon rain and I finally got the front bed mulched. After I get a shower and get the housework done, I'm collapsing...
