had 147 posts. that lots of exercise friends.

Now we have survival boost 2. Lets play poker with our cancer and take him to the cleaners.

See the first post here about the science of exercise.

This post started out as walking, but we are an open minded bunch and now we have many exercise types listed in the title. Just move if you can.

We also have the unique 100,000km 30 year clinical trial being run here. will anyone make this target, dare is say even earlier than 30 years. It would be just so amazing. Obviously we will all have to live that long to get an invite to the party.

In Sydney Australia, sylvania to sutherland. Bottle and all.
This is the walking post. I am walking to the naturopath right now.
I feel fine, with energy just bad diarrhea. Its good having a bag, I don't have to find a tree anymore. haha

If you have some energy and are well come for a walk with me today. A walk around the world if you will for 10 minutes to 5 hours whatever you can manage. going to do this everyday.

I used to hear " an apple a day keeps the doctor away "

Now I say to myself " a walk a day keeps the monster away"

search on exercise colorectal and recurrance, for details.

come on couch potatoes up and addem and move.

love to all,

Pete

ps I am out the door right now.

1. What is the relationship between physical activity and colon cancer risk?
Colorectal cancer has been one of the most extensively studied cancers in relation to physical activity, with more than 50 studies examining this association. Many studies in the United States and around the world have consistently found that adults who increase their physical activity, either in intensity, duration, or frequency, can reduce their risk of developing colon cancer by 30 to 40 percent relative to those who are sedentary regardless of body mass index (BMI), with the greatest risk reduction seen among those who are most active (3–7). The magnitude of the protective effect appears greatest with high-intensity activity, although the optimal levels and duration of exercise are still difficult to determine due to differences between studies, making comparisons difficult. It is estimated that 30 to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day is needed to protect against colon cancer (6, 7). It is not yet clear at this time whether physical activity has a protective effect for rectal cancer, adenomas, or polyp recurrence (3).
Physical activity most likely influences the development of colon cancer in multiple ways. Physical activity may protect against colon cancer and tumor development through its role in energy balance, hormone metabolism, insulin regulation, and by decreasing the time the colon is exposed to potential carcinogens. Physical activity has also been found to alter a number of inflammatory and immune factors, some of which may influence colon cancer risk.

Lots of rain the last couple a days, we need it many fires burning and some people lost their homes. see slavelake , alberta canada.
YES I am walking, I bought a treadmill, still can watch the icehockey and the soccer while I walk. When it is dry I walk outside. stil recouperating from my operation 4 weeks ago. Everyday a little further and a little longer. Swimming will be next when the wounds are all healed. 50 cm long and still a few scabs.
Hugs to all,

Usually do about 35 minutes on treadmill at about 3/3.1 mph. Still trying to work up to 3.5 not there yet. Should this be posted daily or do you like a daily journal? Just love the treadmill.

Did about 40 minutes on treadmill. Like to get my pedometer past 10,000 steps a day, usually do about 11,000 to 12,000. Hopefully more in the summer. Have a great exercise day.

Just assuming that the loo is the bathroom:) If you looked back on my posts, you will see that I'm not having such a great time with the reversal. I'm still going about 15-20 times a day. It seems like right after eating is my major contributors. For lunch just having soup and a bite of protein makes me go for at least an hour. And then again about 9 or 10 at night it starts all over again. I'm the one that would love to have a bag and then not. Today my 40 mintues of treadmill consisted of 3 trips to the bathroom while doing so. Well it was after lunch mind you. Still get to go where I'm wanting to go but on my time frame. Thanks for the post.

Hugs! Kim

Did my daily treadmill. Yesterday did just under 11,000 steps.

Pete don't rush getting to exercise too fast. You just had surgery. Hope you are feeling better each and every day though.

It is a bummer when you want to exercise and the bathroom wins :(

dear graci,

lovelly to have you on the team for the long long haul.

yes its 4am, no sleep again for this big aussie.
today i must have done 100 loo visits easy.
so that counts at least as 100 squats, 100 situps as i am laying down and 100 sprints as yes i am sprinting to the loo.
been in a huge amount of pain today, been cranky and sulky and the thought of nthis continuing brings me to tears.
again kids in bed early, wife and I watching a movie. she sees it, i hear it from our one and only loo.
all the doors between loo and where i am are opened, all the chairs are put it, the loo seat is down. no accidents because i can run like the wind. privacy got ditched along time ago.
could not even manage a juice or chinese tea today. pathetic. this reconnection is another challenge just like my survival course.

i have been able to type this without going, now thats a good sign.

hugs to all, especialy our exercisers.

pete

ps kim thanks for sharing your experiences, i would not wish this on anyone, that said at least i am not alone in this ordeal.

Yup those 100 squats count too. And the times that you think you need to go and get to the bathroom fast only to discover when you get there the urgency has let up some.

Sorry you are having difficulty and you aren't feeling well today. Hope the pain gets better and you will be able to sleep.

Hugs!

Kim

OK did 39 minutes of treadmill today. Was a nice exercise too, bumped it up .1 mph. Really no big deal but I'm slowing bumping up speed. I'll do this speed for awhile and if it doesn't bother my back, might bump up again. Exercise for life. It looks good on you :)

Don't push it. You will get there when you can. Chemo wrecks everything. Glad you are giving it a great try. Yup the sphincter surgery was a great saving grace, but also a bigger problem than anticipated.

Hugs to you Gracie! Kim

I'm a fan of starting slow, and doing more than just walking/running/treadmill exercise, but a variety of things, including various stretches. I was doing 20 minutes/day 25 years ago, and I've worked up to an hour and 20 minutes, now (I'm 69) --- that is pretty gradual. And I made a lot of progress when I went from just jogging, about 8 years ago, to add various calisthenics. For calfs, I do what you may see runners do before a race: lean forward with your hands against a wall and step backwards until your calf muscles stretch out a little.

I can so relate to the high heels. Oh to remember those days.
My whole life I was obese, always the fat kid in school. when I was 49 I had a gastric bypass and lost 100 lbs. For the first time in my life I loved dressing up. I was a widow and finally got the courage to start dating again. I went to the gym 3 days a week and on the off days walked 6 miles along a river not far from my house. I was about a size 5 and toned. I could dance like a nut in those high heels and I loved frilly dresses.

Then 4 years ago I developed painful lumps on my feet, first thought to be tumors, maybe caused by the auto-immune CREST syndrome I was diagnosed with the previous year.(maybe from dancing like a nut in heels and walking every day in Walmart sneakers?)
I was a nurse then, and loved it, Pediatrics being my favorite, I started charity programs for needy kids for Christmas, I volunteered for everything that came along.
I planted a tree for a dying nurse in her mother's yard, as her last gift to her. People showed up to help me and donated money to pay for the tree and a bench.
It was known in my hospital, if you want to get something done, call Betty Jo, if she cant find someone to do it, she'll do it herself.
I was a semifinalist for the Jefferson Award for community Service in 2007 and had lunch with the Governor of Pa, he told my granddaughter I was a role model for her. I totally loved my life then. I was Miss October on my Hospitals Nursing calendar. I was so happy with myself for the first time in my life.
Then, I could not even walk in nursing shoes. finally the doctor said Betty, the tumors have to be removed and biopsied. That was the end of the life I loved so much.

I was never able to go back to work. It was memorial day the last I worked, seemed kind of fitting. It was the hardest thing I ever did, giving up nursing.
I was afraid of starving. I had scaled back to part time status the year before so I was unsure of my benefits. I applied for SSDI, I was granted in 5 months right after my short term ins expired. I have a pension from my late husband but its not very much.

2 surgeries on my feet. never healed correctly so then another on the left. then I had an abnormal Pap test. that started the roller coaster, had a total abdominal hysterectomy, a severe MRSA infection. Feet got bad again. trying to get a handle on my health enough to get them repaired again by another foot surgeon. My first year post op hysterectomy I had an abnormal pap which started a series of tests, bad biopsies,
I went out of town to a renowned cancer center for another opinion on what turned out to be pre-cancerous HPV virus, so I had to use chemo cream vaginally for 10 weeks.
Brutal stuff and messy, all through this I had been having diarrhea and going to the doctor, who said get a scope but WHO HAD TIME. So, I had the scope end of last august, within a week was in the hospital with stage 3C colon cancer in my cecum. resection, no colostomy or ileostomy. 6 months of chemo

so thats my story graci, I have 4 granddaughters who took all my high heels. Many friends who divvied up my many uniforms.
I have 6 beautiful grandkids and even though Im only 58 the oldest is graduating soon. All the girls and myself volunteer for my friend who manages the pediatric urgent Care and includes us to work for the telethon every year, its next weekend. only had to miss it once
I also have scheduled my LAST foot surgery for June 30, then Ill be all good to go.
Life maybe has to be different but that doesnt mean I cant make it good right?
sorry guys, got carried away.
Good night and God Bless us every one

Well very proud of myself yesterday did 13,400 steps, but today only walked about 25 mintues. Just got caught up doing other things and never went back on the treadmill for a second time today. Get mad at myself when I'm not doing my usual 35 minutes or more a day. Had a bad "loo" day as Pete would say :) Sometimes just have to take that tea in order for me to go and then - oh well just squirts of a little amount and then again in 2 minutes. Oh this disease is awful, but I'm getting out there doing when I'm able and that's what counts :)

Hugs! Kim

Didnt catch anything (to many boats on the water today) but had a good time paddling on the water.

Glad that you are joining the club dear one. You are right, my thinking was the same thing when looking at the title and never opened the post until a week ago. Anything we do is considered exercise, and yes, even cleaning the toilets :)

Well did my 39 minutes on treadmill - don't ask why 39, some 38, 25, 33. All depends on how the bathroom issues go, but today did a good workout and then went shopping for my garden. Spent more money today than time spent on the treadmill but hey got to get the garden growing. Yesterday was not a good day, like I said and only did about 9,700 steps. Live for life and do what you can do for this day. Only focus on today. Tomorrow will take care of itself.

Hugs! Kim

but popped on today because of comments referencing it elsewhere.

Before I forget, Graci - I've finally found comfortable shoes in the new Clarks Unstructured line. They even have some dressy-ish shoes. They are not cheap (~$100) but well worth the money. I hate shoes and cannot wear heels. I have 4 pairs: brown and black loafer styles from them and black and bronze slightly dressy sandals, with a bit of a wedge heel. I gave a 5th pair to my daughter, because the cut bothered me a bit (but she loved them, as they were slightly dressy, and extremely comfortable.)

Exercise - I've been trying to get on the exercise bandwagon, and doing so sporadically. Yesterday 11+ miles on my bicycle along the Mohawk River. Walks - a couple of miles here and there (Sunday, with my daughter, newly home from 7 months in Taiwan.)

I find I can't tolerate the heat and humidity, which discourages me from going outside as much. Now that the incessant rain has stopped (2 weeks of continuous rain) it is very hot and humid. Constant thunderstorm threats have kept me out of my beloved kayak!

Much more frequent foot cramping since chemo et al - I never know when my foot will seize up on me and let me down.

However, over all, life is great! (Well, except I forgot to renew my drivers license before this past Friday, and now for the first time in over 40 years, I don't have a legal drivers license! To be rectified later this morning, as my husband drives me to the DMV!)

Best to all, Alice
