#MOVETHATLYMPH 2017 Challenge Lymphedema Awareness Events

#MOVETHATLYMPH 2017 FALL 60 Day Challenge

Hello Fall

Pumpkin spice is back!! Oh yeah!  Let’s go Friday Night Lights, colorful leaves, candy corn, and hopefully cooler weather as the Fall season is upon us.  Many of us will feel some relief as the temperatures and humidity levels begin to drop. This is personally my favorite time of the year!

For our next #MOVETHATLYMPH challenge, we will do a #60DayChallenge for Fall.  To participate in this challenge, you MUST share your posts in The Lymphedema Running & Fitness Club (LRFC) closed FB group with the hashtag #movethatlymph and share your workouts.  No need for your workouts to be complicated.  Participate at YOUR level.  This is a challenge for Lymphies by Lymphies.  This means it is NOT a competition.  It is a challenge for yourself to improve or maintain your lymphatic health, depending on your needs.

  1. I’m in!!! I recently started working AND studying again, AND adopted two kittens (soooo cute) so it will be a challenge to keep taking care of myself the way I should. Let’s all motivate and support each other! Together we’re stronger!

  2. I joined to get the motivation from others to better my health , cause I work overnight and I know this is something I need to do

  3. I am in! Getting busy at work, and the challenge will hopefully keep me on track with my routine: 2 x cardio/strength/yoga per week. It’s also great to find a community of fellow lymphies who go places since I was most afraid of losing the freedom of travelling and outdoor activities after lymphedema from cancer treatment.

  4. I am ready to #movethatlymph !! Excited to join this challenge. I just starting seeing a new theraphist and I am on the second week of bandaging. This challenge will help me stay motivated!

  5. I’m joining #movethatlymph challenge because I’m passionate about lymph movement since my surgeon tol me ‘…exercise exercise exercise ‘ I did and it’s changed my life. Now I MUST exercise every morning and I notice the difference if I don’t. I either cycle on my stationary bike, use my treadmill or rebound – or all three! Or I walk my dog or ride our e-bike. It’s just the most important thing (besides no-dairy products!) that we can do for our lymph system. We have to jump start it!!!

  6. Sorry, I must have lost the instructions in translation lol – I have started ‘Moving that Lymph’ and will be riding and swimming because it helps ground me and keep my mood above water and safe.

  7. I JUST found you! Can I please join the Fall Challenge? I’m learning as I go and need motivation to keep moving on good days and not so good days!

  8. I am doing this challenge to be healthier. My lymphedema negatively affects me but with exercise, I see pic improvements!

  9. Hello, I just discovered this challenge and I want to join. As summer heat starts to decline (who am I kidding) this is Florida, it’s always hot here, but I digress…summers are hard. Fall is too my favorite season and usually when I start going outside again. Only I haven’t. I need this for motivation! Cheers to all! <3

    1. Hi Jackie – You may join but realize we are 1 week into the challenge already. It started last Friday, Sept 22nd.

      Your Day 1 would start when you join The Lymphedema Running & Fitness Club closed group.

      Thanks and Welcome!

  10. So, I’m late to actually signing up but I’ve been tracking all week. I’m joining to get more active and move some lymph!

  11. WooHoo! I #movethatlymph when I race with my outrigger canoe club, swim, & take Pilates classes! Thanks, @juzo, for caring about those of us SPORTING your garments!
