Another beautiful fall day

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

It's another beautiful day here! Felt pretty good today, despite waking up more than usual from the hot flashes during the night; the increase is probably because I had chemo yesterday. Still have the usual aches and pains but they are milder and more tolerable today.
Still not eating a lot because of the acid reflux.

I got out for a 20 minute walk today. After sitting and resting a bit after I got back home, I wanted to get back outside since it was so nice. I got my small rake out of the shed and spent about 10 minutes raking the pine needles and debris out of the flower beds along the house, and under the steps of my porch; with cold weather coming, I don't want any critters makings nest there. It doesn't look like I did much, but that wasn't my goal, I just wanted something to do outside. Also filled the bird feeders that needed filling.

So far, I have 90 fitness minutes for the week, and it's not even over yet; but it's the most I've had so far per week for this month.
I have also gone out for a walk 5 days in a row, anywhere from 10-24 minutes each day.

    You're doing great. I know the beautiful fall weather helps. We are in for a storm tomorrow, then the weekend is supposed to be nice. I need to get out and do some yard work too.

    Fall is my favorite season of the year. There is something about the cool, crisp air and the promise of good sleeping weather. Unfortunately in NYC, we have been experiencing a ton of humidity..along with a head cold, doesn't make for a good mix. However, I am already enjoying the first colorful splashes of the season on the trees:)

    It sounds like you're going well, Shari! And I know what you mean about wanting to be outside on a day like this; there won't be many of them before the snow flies, and I too want to make the most of the great weather while it's here.
