  1. So, I'm back in the gym doing my routine work outs since I've graduated from school and currently looking for a full-time job. However, I am trying to figure out..what will prevent this soreness in my body. Yesterday, I went to a work out session offered through my church..it was about 1.5 hours of work outs...Well, I'm going to the gym T, W, Th, and Friday...not sure exactlyl if I'm damaging anything..or if I'm simply warming up those unused muscles that haven't been FULLY and completely worked out in about 6-8 months. Yes, I said 6-8 months. Sad, but honesty is the key to a successful you. Well, I haven't gained weight. but, I'm loosing slowly...so please tell me what do I need to do to prevent body soreness before and after my 30minutes to 1 hour workouts I anticipate on doing per day..(or at least 5 weekdays)
  2. OMG>..i love Pasta too..but, the troubling thing is is that since I've been banded, I've only eaten a little but not so little that it has caused a drastic weight change. However, I suggest if you want to get good results you have to leave those foods alone. Focus on foods with high nutrients and that way you won't go wrong. No need to track calories..I learned that that stuff just gets frustrated so I realize..if I'm conscience of everything that goes in mouth..I don't have to worry too much bout anything coming back out directly after consumption. You get me? Ididn't want to get to graphic for those of us with weak stomachs lol..but, overall I'ma junk food junkie and a pasta fanatic..So, these are the things still to this day I'm striving to leave a lone..but, first things first is setting goals..I'm going or working on a 40 day fast of staying committed...which includes: Leaving soda, junk, and pasta alone Drinking plenty of Water Making sure to excercise at least 3 (cardio work outs) days a week and possibly two days of small strength training Track weight loss and measurements. Find a job as this fast encourages my weight loss along with my spirituality..or strengthens my relationship with God, honestly you can't have one without the other..cause God will see you through this difficult process..take it one day at a time..and don't let one days mess ups become an annual thing....start over and over until you can't start over no more and just decide to STICK WITH IT! Good luck everyone! God bless

    Poppin my Blog Cherry!!!

    you are hella funny! I'm glad you made that decision..be motivated..and continuous..
  11. yeah I really agree with you skinnylinds..maybe my fills are the problem..because I've only had two since my surgery..and I don't think its been very tight...enough..I mean, I have only lost a whopping 5lbs in a year! I had the motivation to work out..but, I attend UIUC in Champaign..I'm currently a Women's Studies student trying to get into a nursing program...However, my motivation is hard..but, a professor told me that taking a novel (trashy novel..haha..or something you would like to read in your spare time) to the gym would be great because you are motivated to read that book because you want to know what's going on...if it is good...so, I think once I jump back on the "band' wagon...this is what I will be doing as a motivation to get me to the gym..my gyms are free as well...do you have a list of nursing schools that accept non-nursing degree students? I want to eventually go into nursing..I will hopefully be applying to Rush university's nursing program in the summer of 2010...so, wish me luck...please..how's the nursing going for u thus far?
