NO EXCERSISE YESTERDAY. Head down....... tail between legs!

Had a BAD PB last night and after being very sick went to bed. I am just very grateful my band is ok.

Today is a new day and I will be on my bike today for sure.

Ok, I'm one week post-op and jumping in here...

Monday--Walked one mile

Tuesday--Walked 1.25 miles and shot hoops w/ my boyfriend for 20 mins

Wednesday--see above

I'm encouraged! I think about what I was doing two weeks ago (a great big bunch of nothin') and I'm renewed. :clap2:

Tomorrow I'm meeting with the Wellness Center director where I work to get a fitness routine mapped out. For free. How freakin' cool is that?!?

Marianne - You are right on track! You are walking and 1 week post op for you. That's how I did it. You go girl! I can't wait to see you in twoville, very soon I see. Walk walk walk...the lb's will just melt off and right now you are at a time where the weight will just fall off the first few weeks so run with that! Never look back.

Niche - Wow! I have really short legs so anything over 4.0 mph is considered jogging or running for me. My walking pace is 3.2 - 3.6 but 4.0 ..and I'm jogging, 5.0 and i'm running. That's really good ..plus you had a 5% incline so that's even harder. Work it!

i may be slow... what are the leg lifts telly and tricia are doing? are they standing or laying down? thanks! i have to get my strength training mojo back. i am a master at avoiding anything with weights etc. i just love zoning out to the tv on the treadmill. tivo is great for that. if i want to watch gray's anatomy or america's next top model, i have to wait till the next morning and watch while on the tm. it's a great way to motivate myself. it would also work with on demand i suppose.

O....kay.... have just discovered something interesting. When we bought out treadmill (a NordicTrack) it has miles per hour buttons on it, but the fellow that delivered it told me he calibrated it in kilometres for me. So the speed flashing on the console is km/hr. BUT - that's the only thing in kilometres, so whilst I thought I was doing 4km runs, I was actually doing 4 mile runs - so closer to 6kms. No bloody wonder I completed my 4km fun run in 29 minutes - was stoked at the time. That's an 8km per hour pace, yet when I run 8km per hour on the treadmll I'm sprinting and no way could I keep it up for half an hour. So my treadmill info is misleading. Poop.

Shall have to get myself a pedometer I think.

Anyhow Tuesday night I walked for 10 mins on it before I had to get off. A glass of red wine and a slice of pizza for dinner does not make for a good workout, I got the worst pain around my band, I think the pizza had corners.

Wednesday (yesterday) I had an awesome run. I pulled out a CD that I hadnt listened to in 10 years, and I did the aerobic 3 program which is quite a difficult one involving killer inclines. Felt great when I got off. 40 minutes, and yep, 6kms

I'm training for a 5km fun run, I thought i'd have to add distance gradually but I'm already doing more than that, lol.

I think you are doing soo great! Wow, you are already running 6kms and you are training for 5km, I think that's how marathon runners train, they strive for more than the competition minimum.

Good going! Pizza and Wine??? mmmmm but bad for me.

I lie down when I do my leg lifts. This is the order that I do them:

1) I lie on my side and lift up

2) move to my hands and knees and then lift from the back

3) lie sort of on my butt/side and lift up the inner thigh

4) lie on my back and lift from the floor up

5) back to the side and lift up

I do this 50 times for each leg, which adds up to 500 total.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
