A beautiful day here St. Louis. Got in a nice bike ride before heading into work. Now, we need the Cardinals to win tonight and the Blues as well. Happy Wednesday to all! Life is Great! :)

Is today your birthday? When I read St. Louis I went to your profile and it says today! Happy Birthday! Big Cardinal fan. Cut my teeth on Cardinal baseball. Am actually from the lead belt-Flat River, Farmington area. WTG on the workouts!

Rode my bike 2.5 miles yesterday and pulled a big hill. Wasn't sure if I could do it but I DID! Rode again this morning but not sure how far this ride. Beautiful weather to be outside. Hey Catfish! How about those CARDS!

Great job on the ride yesterday and today.

I hear that!! Would be nice if every once in a while we could just "hire" a stand-in ;) but that's not how it works, is it? I wish I could do step aerobics.

I would just like to be able to post my daily (or weekly) exercise just for encouragement and accountability. I will be 63 next week. My goal is to do something cardio-wise 45 minutes a day 4-5 x week. For me that will mean walking or bicycling. My band is fine but my butt is a little slow getting back in the groove. I did walk 2 1/2 miles today and it did include some hills. At this point in time I'm not interested in how fast or how far but rather doing something on a regular basis. With the cooler weather coming I will be doing some hiking in the woods. I applaud all of you who are already fit or on your way there with utilizing your band and moving your bodies. Thanks!

Hi sunnysidega,

I think posting a "Daily Accountability" post is awesome! We use to have this on Obesity Help and I use to post one myself. I think what would be great is to start a new post "Daily" like the Title: How are you moving your body today: Monday?

These types of posts keeps me accountable. If you can't do it daily, I would be happy to do it Mon-Friday, but since you suggested it, it would be great if you would start a new post daily. :)

NaNa, do you think post here on the fitness and exercise board? I say whoever is up and at it first start the thread each day. Would you go ahead and do it tomorrow (Monday)? We can see how it goes. Whoever wants to start the thread each day could :)

I have a Winnie The Pooh core too, but I'm working on that. Got a gym membership yesterday and walked a mile on the treadmill (not that much compared to everyone else), but it was an accomplishment just to get into the gym, sign up, and go back then do a mile on the treadmill. I have that chubby girl mentality that goes along with a gym and I'm embarrassed and don't want anyone looking at me or being disgusted. But, no one even noticed me (lol). And while Winnie the Pooh is cute- I'm not going for that look lol ;)

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

        That photo looks like one of my phlebotomy jobs. lol

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
