This is my mom's off chemo week. She walked a mile for excercise.

    A mile?


    Exercise is great, but the body needs energy to fix and heal itself.

    When we expend that energy by doing -too much- exercise, we
    use up that energy quickly.

    Cancer, chemo and radiation can take it's toll. Our body has to try
    to fight the ravages of both what we have, and what they're trying
    to cure it with. Taking a short walk, and relaxing on a bench to
    watch other people knock themselves out, sounds like a better
    choice to me.

    Good health to ya'll.

    Great job. This is just the
    Great job. This is just the kind of motivation I need to get myself exercising again. Thanks for sharing.

    GREAT news!
    Is she normally a big exerciser? If so, this is perfect. I agree with John's post that she needs to be a bit careful, tho, not to overdo...her body is working hard, even 'off-chemo' times...

    Make sure she stays hydrated!

    Hugs, Kathi

    Glad she could do it
    As for me, I'm sitting here, stuffed full of chicken rigatoni, fresh steamed seasoned String Beans and garlic bread.
    I sure wish I'd get my lazy arse up off this couch and go do a walk myself!!!
    Glad your Mom had that energy!!!

    Walk!
    Great that she feels like walking. I usually get my exercise pushing a cart around Target!!
    ( The cart helps with the balance for me) It has been miserably hot here, so outside activity is limited. The Chemo Trot Dance also keeps me close to facilities!!! Not fun!!

    Did someone walk with her?? I am a bit leary of venturing too far on my own due to some past experiences on walks??

    Keep up the good work!!

    Yes she was eccercising
    Yes she was eccercising beforehand. She has indicated that she is only going to do what her body can handle. Consequently, the duaghters will be handling the holidays this year and oh the neighborhood ladies walk with her.
