Short 5 mile run (it's hard to believe that a 5 mile run is a "short" run nowadays!) and 2 mile walk today. Running the Best Damn Race 10K this weekend. Should be a fun race in my hometown. Disney Princess Half Marathon in 3.5 weeks! My running anniversary is in a few weeks. I can't believe that I've been working out regularly for this long. Biggest success has been preventing injuries by slowly increasing miles, not over striding, and of course wearing good shoes.

Met my running and walking goals for the month, planning on getting on my bike tomorrow and Thursday.

Run: 60 (Goal: 60)

Walk: 66 (Goal: 60)

Bike: 15 (Goal: 30)

Total: 141 (Goal: 150)

Feel better soon!

I'm down with the sickness too.

I danced yesterday and over did it. Still doing some yoga and walking today.

I made a BOMB Soup today. Sooooooo good! Root veggies and chicken and spinach.

Taking oregano oil, Reishi mushroom, loads of Vit C and turmeric. Using the sinus rinse is keeping I the head congestion in check. Happy happy happy about that.

I must dance in the morning :-0

Hey there everyone!! Work has been keeping me busy busy so I haven't been able to check in till now but I am happy to say I made my goal for the month. I ended the month at 122.25 miles! I did better this month than the last 2 months so that makes me very happy. I have still been in a plateau state. I have been bouncing between 284 to 287 lbs for the last month. Kinda frustrating but I know I need to step up the exercise more. No excuses...just have to do it!

Great job everyone!! C-ya next month!

Hey everyone. I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up with this thread very well. I have been keeping up with my fitness...sorta. I blew away my running goal by logging 132 miles...the second most I've ever logged. I didn't come close to meeting my swimming goal but I hope next month will be better.

If there's going to be a february thread someone else is going to have to start it because I just haven't been around consistently enough to do it. Fiddle?

I don't remember what my January goals were once I switched over to weight lifting... but I am now lifting 150# on the leg press and 40# on the bench press. I do know that it appears I have lost one single pound since New Year's :(

      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?

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
