*** GET MEDICAL OK AND ONGOING SUPPORT BEFORE STARTING ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM, I did ***

*** AT THE END OF THIS POST IS A SUMMARY OF OTHER POST THAT MAYBE OF INTEREST ****

The American Cancer Society now recommends exercise and diet, at last after about 18 months of sharing my passion for survival of which exercise is the key part, closely followed by diet, meditation and lifestyle.

I am focused on weight training to build muscle mass and yoga to improve flexiblity and blood flow with a strict vegan diet full of plant based protein, carbs and nutrients to allow me to gain weight, ie muscle and have improving health despite positive cancer markers.

The exercise strategy is always trying to work in interval training to get the anaerobic cell cycle. i still hope we will be the fittest group of cancer survivors on the planet. we may also be the longest living with the grace of god.

its a beautiful life, and most mornings i exercise after my daily supplements before breakfast. "Just do it" if you can, any exercise is positive even if its just deep breathing or a walk up the stairs.

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.

don't over do it, but don't under do it either.

see my post about your oxy issues.

Don't fall into the same trap i did, before exercise i now have a juice and pea protein shake. i don't want to burn muscle while exercising.

of course walking, movement is good for us, the fresh air, the sun.

plenty of healthy water also is a good idea, if i sweat heaps now i make sure i replace those lost minerals and electrolyetes.

now tonight i did another proper head stand at yoga, not bad for a 45 year yoga virgin a few months ago. glad i have lost that 50kgs, otherwise i would have broken my neck.

anyone else exercising ?

its just great fun! you should see the beautiful woman at the yoga. but i only go for the exercise. thats all seriously.

hugs,
Pete

dear pepe,
to build muscle, not just keep it i have really focused on gut and digestion.
its worked i am gaining muscle, just a little, swapping fat with toxins for new muscle.

so i am having lots of protein, mainly raw mixed nuts, broccoli, a little fish and organic chicken and kangeroo.

now i always have media clear plus , details on iherb with every juice. especially in the morning before yoga, after the hard core 90 minute class i come home and have free range organic eggs, mushrooms etc etc.

i was told to ensure i have good quality protein in my diet before and after exercise. its working for me so far.

alas walking is catabolic, basically consumes muslces.

the only exercise to build muscle is anabolic ie resistance exercises. that where my focus has been. i have been off the treadmill for months now in favour of sports based yoga, that leaves all your muscles aching. we even started today on one armed pushups.

so my onc was worried about my weight loss, she is not so worried now. focusing on digestion, and diet has given me some results. so even if the cea is a problem, its nice to have success on the other areas, ie gaining muscle, good bloods, etc etc.

you probably know this sort of stuff. but my functional gp spot i was burning muscle protein in the 24 hour complete urine test. i think creatinin was the marker that signaled i was burning muscle. i stopped the treadmill in favour of weighting as soon as i had this explained and the tests confirmed it.

i did the hardest yoga today, a really good workout, lots of sweat and aching muscles. i might only be getting 3 x 90 workouts a week, but that allows recovery.

i did a couple of straigh arm hand stands today. a first for me. just some thoughts about keeping the weight on. medi clear plus is an amazing rice protein thats so easy to add to an organic vegetable juice.

just a few ideas and reflections on what has worked for me, good luck.

hugs,
pete

Hey Pete,

I continue to swim about 5 days a week...I am not a Olympian or anything but I give it my best. I started juicing about 2 weeks ago and am interested in what amazing rice protein that you add to your juice? Keep up the good work in Yoga. After my hip fracture heals completely, I hope to add more exercise to my routine. I love walking, bike riding...maybe will even try Yoga at the YMCA.

yoga, i cannot wait.

anyone else exercising ?

did you see the acs advice about diet and exercise ?

regardless have a great evening, i am.

the yoga class was pretty tough because i have a strained leg where i fell through a bridge on the health retreat and given i did not do as much self practice as i should have.

the other thing i tried tonight is the steam room after yoga for 10 minutes, then cold shower, do this 3 times. its supposed to stimulate your immune system.

hugs,
pete

I walked 5 miles this morning under a canopy of trees along a creek......sort of a green space in the suburbs. It's where I can get "fresher" air. Saw a section of a copperhead snake last week......ugh. Didn't see the whole thing cause I walked really fast after spotting it along the edge of the concrete. Now I'll have to stay very alert when walking.
I wouldn't feel as good if I weren't doing all this walking......i do believe.

i need some advice about weight lifting, i have some muscle but really not much,
i only became a fitness junkie when it become obvious to me my survival depends on it.

i have to gain 4 kg of solid muscle and get my body weight from 86.5kg over 90kg in the next two months, this is the target the onc and i agreed on, vegan muscle building is a challenge. otherwise onc wants me to see her nutritionist and go to mcdonalds. yuk.

i am having a liver spasm just thinking about mcdonalds.

did you know mcdonalds have extra thick reinforced floors.
they need too to carry all the extra weight of their customers.
(this was a joke!)

so post away here, whenever you want.

everyday i am walking, or doing yoga or weights or swimming.

getting my nutrition right is a challenge, but i am trying, some say very trying.

hugs,
pete

ps today i walked and ran with son and wife on our beach with dogs, i got 40 pushups done, 2 sets of 20. yesterday was a big swim and a long walk and lots of upper body weights.

We go on a weekend walk. My wife drops me off on a trail head and drives to the other side and walks towards me. She dropped me off and drives 10 miles(18K) to the other side. I walk 8k and text her my location. We meet and I see a new trail. It is marked and I believe that it will take us to the trail head that she is parked at. I was wrond, and winded up doing another 14K to the car. Luckily my wife is easy going and the dogs loved it. I ended the day with 21km and the wife with 14km on the trail. We had Mexican food and Marguirtas to celbrat the walk. lol
Best Always, mike

5 miles is a great goal.

I hope you get to your goal.

Ps add in some interval training if you can, it's my focus now.
I walk most Days with 2 x 25kg weights, so I get a good work out.
