Exercise Today



Recommended Posts

Not sure, I havent done anything since my last run on Wednesday night which felt like shite so I decided to take Thursday off. During the early hours of Friday I woke up and tore my cornea, which developed into an ulcer (its due to a hereditary eye condition I have) so I couldnt open either eye till about midday on Friday and was in lots of pain Fri/Sat. Its loads better today but I get this blurred vision like wearing someone else's glasses for a few days afterwards which makes me nauseous - that kind of motion sickness nausea. So I think I'll probably do nothing today.

But back on the bike tomorrow!

:hail: Not worthy... not worthy.

I was a lazy slacker today. But tomorrow I already have plans for the gym AND for walking with a couple of local bandsters. Tomorrow night I might be worthy again.

You all are all doing so great! Thank you for the inspiration to get off my bum.

I "exercised" for the first time in a long, long time. I have other physical problems that has been prohibiting "elective exercise". But, today I road my recumbent bike for 30 minutes and 8 miles. I know that is not much but it is a start and I am so happy that I was able to do it!

I go to the YMCA. I also do pilates at home when I can't get there.

My Y has 2 new eliptical trainers called ARC trainers and man they are beasts! I can burn 400 calories in 22 minutes. That means along with my weights, sit ups and/or machines I probably burn at least 500 calories per visit.

500 calories X 4 days a week is 2000 calories or way more than a days worth of food.

I've only been going 4 days for the last 2 weeks because of school, but I've already noticed a huge difference with that and adding in more Protein to my diet.

Better today! We just got home from the gym and tanning. I did a whole two minutes on the eliptical machine... I'm so proud! *laughs* Did some time on the bikes and lots of work on my arms and shoulders.

LOL, yay for PhotoNut! That's a start. I'd prefer elliptical any day over treadmills. It feels good on my knees.

Everyone did soo well today. I won't disclose the mileage I put on my bike today but it was so bad and I started feeling chest pains. I called hubby to come get me and after a 5 min Water break in the shade, I got back on and called him to tell him, I changed my mind. :) I pulled through and made it... but my hands and arms are freakin burnt to a crisp.

Carol..........

I love that you worked out, despite your physical problems. You are my hero for the day, really.

I got some heat in another forum for being myself .. and being "the perfect lap band patient" (she called me)....... from a woman that gained all her weight back and wanted a hug b/c she just eats everything and has no control. She said that she knows she shouldn't eat this and that... and she knows the band is a tool, blah blah but then turns around and says...."help, I don't know what to do". Of course I gave my 2 cents.

I know I can be mean.. but I am honest and I do believe people have to really make things work for themselves if they want to succeed. I always say... "fight yourself hard" and your post gave me a good feeling.

Thank you for sharing.

Emileekaye,

My dearest LBT new friend..

You work really hard and you really do commit to yourself. I admire you and your motivation. 30 minutes is really good. It is better than nothing. I am happy you are my friend and that you found a new kick within yourself to get back on the wagon and really make this work for you.

I can't wait till we meet up one day, after we reach goal. We can talk about all the crazy things we did to get there. (If I make it alive).

You are my counter inspiration. Believe that.

Also, you have the right to take a day or two off. (Notice I said a day or two *snickers*).

Ok. I'm stepping it up.

Today I met with a personal trainer. She had me do strength tests. I had to bench press 36 pounds as many times as possible. I did 45, I could have done 50 if I tried hard. She said the average woman does 25.

I had to do crunch sit ups and hit a yard stick with my hand (hard to visualize). I did 20, could have 23-24. She said most do 12.

I have to say, I'm totally impressed with myself.

I also did 30 minutes on the cybex arc trainer (500 calories) and a few pilates exercizes for my big belly.

Not bad for a woman who still needs to lose at least 50 lbs.

*Update*

I did 250 crunches instead of 200 and I got my 6 lb medicine ball out and did arm lifts and squats with it last night.

Now today, I hope to get in an hour walk/jog, 250 crunches, leg lifts, and working with the medicine ball.

Holy cow, woman!! 250 crunches? I did 75 one night and my stomach was aching like crazy the next day. I suppose I'll have to work my way up to 250. You're an inspiration, girlfriend. :P Good job!

I've been doing them everynight for I'd say a little over 2 weeks. I started off doing 4 sets of 25. The first couple days after my stomach hurt so bad during the day, but I made myself do it every single night. Then about a week ago I realized I could do 50 at a time, so then I started doing 2 sets of 50. Then I'd try adding 25 after the hundred, to get 125, and I just kept working myself up. It really doesn't bother me at all during the day now, no real sorness.

What really helps me is instead of counting to myself in my head and not breathing while doing them, which is bad. My boyfriend counts for me and reminds me to breath and encourages me on.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
