    What Workout Am I Remembering?

    It IS Bootcamp from 4-Day Split. Thank you! I don't know how long it would have taken me to find on my own, and it's been driving me crazy. Exercise-lover, I wish it was my horse, but it's just me riding at a ranch in Colorado that my family visits every year.

    What Workout Am I Remembering?

    I'm remembering a workout where there's a segment where you're running across the workout space moving dumbbells from one side to the other in some form. I also think there was a part where you lay the band down and jump back and forth over it. I though I was thinking of Drill Max, but I did...

    Post-Cancer Surgery Eating Help

    Thank you all for the recommendations. I actually have Anticancer: A New Way of Life. I got it for myself shortly before my surgery, but I just haven't been ready to pick it up until now. The whole experience was so traumatic, that I just couldn't deal with any more for a while there. I do...

    Post-Cancer Surgery Eating Help

    Hey, mine was squamous cell carcinoma too. They have no idea how I got it on my tongue. I'm not a smoker or drinker. I'm lucky it was in a spot where I could see it. It was very complicated because of where it was and the reconstruction. They had to operate on it through my neck. I was in...

    Post-Cancer Surgery Eating Help

    I find myself in poor shape after cancer surgery at the beginning of April. I had about 1/3 of my tongue removed and reconstructed using part of my arm. Post-surgery, I could only eat soft/liquid foods for a while, and I put on some weight during this time (FYI--ice cream is a soft food)...

    DS scared of commercials

    Tana: I wonder if it's the commercial for the movie Quarantine. It's been airing a lot lately, and while I don't watch the Speed Channel, it has been getting a lot of air time on other sporting events. My son is 13, and he commented that it looked like a really scary movie. The images are...

    Question for the Runners

    Thanks Jennifer and Carole. I will definitely check out those websites. I like having a plan set out, so maybe I'll be able to find a next step plan. I also didn't know about the 10 to 15 percent rule. All good tips. Does anyone know a way to find out about races in my area. Is there a...
