I've stopped watching my actual weight as much - I tend to hover around the 89-90 KG mark, If I really stick to a strict diet I sit around the 84KG

I've started to concentrate on my gym activities more and more with a flexible diet, seems to be working pretty well at the moment.

So far in November - 7 runs, 2 mountain bike rides, one hike

Also some low intensity stuff - a bit of construction, a couple walks to the mailbox (which is 2.5 miles RT with some big hills), first session on the new climbing wall

Sounds like a pretty good month so far!

I've done no outdoor stuff at all due to air quality issues, but I did have four good gym sessions this week.

I'm always motivated by your consistent gym sessions.

>>air quality issues

The mountain bike ride I mentioned was about 3 hours of uphill riding and breathing fairly hard, but through the forest without long views. When we got to the summit which suddenly opens into a massive view (a historic fire lookout as it happens), I looked out at the smoke on the horizon and thought "I'm not sure that was healthier than sitting at home and eating ice cream." More fun though... although I do like ice cream a lot.

Yeah, but the mountain bike ride affords you more ice cream.  ;)

Yeah but now it's a double whammy - lung cancer and diabetes, all in one day.

4/4 gym sessions.  Did some good walking with my wife yesterday and went skateboarding with one of my kids today.  It is so nice to have clean air again!

5 weeks of PT complete. I ran for the first time since July. The ankle felt ok. Progress.

Sound's like you are heeling up nicely.  How's the rest of you doing Travis?  Any rang of motion issues or nagging pains?

We just moved house and once the floor's done in the utility room there's space for exercise equipment to be always-up, determined not to stop and start exercise now but to stick with it!

Good to hear from everyone, but especially Trav!

Careful though. You can get hurt running HHH

I'm at 13 runs/bikes/hikes for the month out of my goal of 15. I'll run today. I've done some other shorter/easier things too. Trying to stay moving without aggravating aches and pains and seems to be working well.

Regular Exercise May Keep Your Body 30 Years ‘Younger’

Quote
The muscles of older men and women who have exercised for decades are indistinguishable in many ways from those of healthy 25-year-olds, according to an uplifting new study of a group of active septuagenarians.

These men and women also had much higher aerobic capacities than most people their age, the study showed, making them biologically about 30 years younger than their chronological ages, the study’s authors concluded.

Range of motion is normal. Shoulder still isn't ready for lifting, but I completed some squats yesterday. Outside of exercise, the pain is gone. Trying to optimize "rest and test" to heal quickly without further injury.

Went for a run the 40-degree rain yesterday before work and made my goal - 15 runs/bikes/hikes for November. Just before the snows came in.

4/4 gym session, not much outdoor time last week.
