We get summer temps over 100 regularly in June so need to get it soon. I am going to start back aggressively with yoga as it helps with bladder/bowel control.
Well, I'm done with the Oxaliplatin so it's doable. I don't think that I could do it if I was still doing Oxaliplatin. This is the third week so I caught up on the stuff that I didn't do the first two weeks which is normal for me with these cycles.
It's unlikely that we'll get 100 degree temperatures in general. Maybe one or two days like that every five to ten years. I would either workout indoors or go walking in the 20 miles of trails near one of my YMCAs. I need to keep up with the Yoga too. It helps the balance and other muscles. It's impractical for me to do cardio (1-2 hours), strength training with free weights and body weight, strength training machines, Yoga and flexibility every day. I can pick from three of those at best now that work is fairly quiet. On bad weeks, I get two or three workouts for the whole week.
I ordered pouches and wafers a size up. I was using 1 3/4 flange, 1 1/4 stoma and my stoma got bigger so the entire stoma isn't inside the whole (there's a small pice that sticks out a few mm from the skin that it covered by the wafer). So this time I have 2 1/4 flange, 1 1/2 stoma. I really do prefer the 1 3/4 flange as it makes it easier with clothing but my only option on going up was 1 3/4 flange, 1 3/8 stoma and I'd rather it be a bit bigger as being bigger is better for being active. So I'll try the bigger stuff this afternoon when I change the bag.
I'd consider outside house projects as unstructured exercise.
