I had an attempt a few weeks ago. It was too soon and I got light headed. So I stuck to walking the dog. Today felt good though.

When are you booked in?

26th. Starting my pre op diet today. Looking forward to it. They've got me set up for 4 appointments in the 2 weeks, so hopefully it'll keep me busy. And my dogs have already expressed how excited they are that all I'll be doing is walking, all 3 of them.

Good luck with the pre op. I'm sure you'll be fine. Pretty easy to be super strict for 2 weeks.

I started c25k recently and so far I'm pretty motivated with it. I've actually exercised every day since starting. Tonight will l be day 1 of week 3 for me. I've pushed a little and did an extra run cycle almost every night so far. I run on the treadmill so I run at 1.5-2% incline to try and compensate for the street vs. treadmill difference.

I'm not a runner and my favorite saying has always been "if you see me running, call the cops cause someone has a gun", so I'm surprised I'm enjoying it so far. I think it's hit some weird competitive thing in me. I'd been totally stalled in exercise and weight loss since late summer and finally decided I needed to do something to try and tighten up my belly pooch. Lets see if the running helps. Tightening up is definitely my goal with the running.

Nothing loses weight and tightens things up like running. If your running 5k 3 or 4 times a week I think you'll smash thru the stall.

I'll let you know how it goes with week 3. running 1.5 minutes ok... running 3 minutes... not so sure about that... :/ if I can tack on the extra 1.5 at the end before warming down, I'll feel accomplished for sure.

I did that program years ago, with moderate success. I'd join you on it again if I didn't just get a shiny new pair of crutches today :D

Hey mr. dom man :) ive been doing this for a few months now. I really enjoy it. if doing it on the treadmill or outside starts to hurt your feet or knees to much you can hop on the elliptical there a speed and time tracker on there and its gentle on the joints. Have FUN!!

      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.

      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.

      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
