In the end I wore the tankini. I think the real victory was feeling that I had enough energy to want to go in the water. It’s been so long since I wanted to do something just because it was fun. If I’d had longer at the beach I think I’d have worn the bikini next time. There were so many people there, of all shapes and sizes, and they weren’t the least bit interested in how I looked or what I was wearing.

Wonderful Ailuros. Sounds as if you had a great time.

Slow, how are your issues? I know you have been struggling.

I got to the gym this morning for a Zumba class, always fun.

Hi all!
Ailuros, your holiday sounds like a success!!!!! Well done you!

Shy, hello!!!!!

Kissa: sending continued good thoughts for Tonda...

Mint: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Hope you had a lovely day!

Well, surgeon was fun... NOT! He poked and prodded me a little, which left me with a cramping foot for the rest of the day and evening. Results are: I need an operation on my big toe and the second one, both will be broken and realigned with threads, plates and so forth. I need to stay in hospital for 3-5 days after the operation after which I get some kind of special shoe and I will be signed off work for a few weeks at least.
After that though: hopefully no more pain!!!! So all this takes place at the end of November, so I still have plenty of time to get worked up about it all, LOL!

xx

That does sound horrible, Mimosa! But if it gets rid of the pain, it’ll be worth it!

Shy, sorry you’re suffering too .

Kissa, it sounds as if you’re making some progress!

Lola, so pleased at the way you’re settling in with Fast30! It seems to be just what you needed.

I finally have an appt. with my physiotherapist for Monday so I'm hoping that he will have some decent advice for me.

I'm stir crazy from having to reduce my kayaking as Summer is the only time of the year when you don't have to make unbelievably detailed plans in case of hypothermia (depending on the body of water, duration of trip, etc. etc.).

If I improve, I may be in Weymouth towards the end of this month and in Devon sometime in September for some sea kayaking.

Gosh, we seem to be a bit fraught and battered - except for those dreaming of D&G cast shoes or recently returned from braving a tankini in public (To my shame, I didn't buy a tankini - I think I'm reconciled to living my life without ever once having worn a tankini or bikini. I'm still eyeing up the modesty Bohn swimwear but that's more for the kayak sessions in the swimming pool when you need something more substantial than a costume but lighter than a wetsuit.)

Sept 2014 A recent DXA scan reported very low muscle mass (sarcopenia) so I'm still thinking about how to cope with that. I have some joint surgery to schedule. I may miss questions that people ask me or personals. Apologies if I do, it's not intentional.
