Back on the horse

OK, back on the horse.

Did 30 minutes of cardio and 15 minutes of weights. yey!

it really does feel great to work out.

OK, so that's 3x this week. I'll work out tomorrow and it 4x. Not bad for my 1st week.

Thank you all for the comments and encouragement :)

Exercise report

well, i've had a rough day (diagnosed with a DVT and a superficial thrombosis) where I spent 6+ hours at the doctor and the pharmacy....

so i'm cutting myself some slack and not exercising today. yup, i haven't done anything since Tuesday, which is not part of my plan at all. Bleh.

but instead of beating myself up about it, i'll jump back on the horse tomorrow.

i did go for an hour walk so at least i got some movement......

Nanoemulsion Kills Highly Resistant Bacteria Found in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis


Exercise Log

So Human Behavior 101 says: you must set a goal and write it down to set yourself up for success.

So, I'm going to use this blog, in addition to logging clinical trials, latest news, etc., to also hold myself accountable for my exercise routine.

Feel free to hold yourself accountable on this site with me too! :)

My goals:

1. 30 minutes of cardio, 5 times a week
2. 15 minutes of weights, 3 times a week

I'm starting off simple. For a long time I've been doing 40 minutes, 3x a week for cardio. I feel that maybe I can work up to 40 minutes 5x a week but I want to start off slowly in working up to it.

So my log for this week: I did 30 minutes of cardio on Monday and Tuesday, skipped yesterday. I did 15 minutes of weights on Monday.

Take care :)

Denufosol Update

Well, it's been nearly 2 months since I posted last about Denufosol.

My clinic was having serious issues with the clinical trial coordinator so we decided to postpone things until the New Year (and when I got back from traveling abroad).

Things were pushed back even more due to my recent hospitalization.

So I'm HOPING at my 2 week post-hospital follow up we'll be able to get things started with Denufosol. I'll keep you guys posted :)

Latest Clinical Trials

Hey guys,

I have posted all this on my Twitter account (CFResearch) which I encourage you all to get a Twitter account (www.twitter.com).

Hoping to encourage clinical trial enrollment with this post. It's really hard to sort through all the studies to figure out what's out there so hopefully this is helpful
