Report on Thursday’s support meeting for July:
Each year we have devote time in the summer to learning a new exercise that will help to get our bodies moving and strength built up! This is especially important for breast cancer survivors, as most have had a difficult time losing muscle due to chemo treatments, and losing strength because of surgeries. We have tried in the past to find exercises that aren’t too difficult, and that will be low-impact. This year, we did a line dancing exercise video! We danced through a warm up, and full set of line-dancing steps, and then a cool down. It was fun! We even had some husbands come and participate – that was a cool sight!
For those who participated, and those who couldn’t come but might be interested, here is the name of the DVD we used (found at Walmart): Dance Off The Inches – Country Line Dance/Country Line Dance Party – 2 DVD workout set.
We had a couple of new members to welcome, and are so happy to have them as part of Lifting Hearts. Barbara Garrett won our give away this month… a darling apron!
We had Sarsaparilla, water, veggies and dip cups, mini corn bread muffins, and delicious frozen Greek yogurt bites with fresh berries! YUM!!!
We missed everyone who couldn’t be there! Hope to see you next month at our Annual Family Picnic – a CARNIVAL for the WHOLE family!
