It is hard to believe with this beautiful surrounding that I spent 90% of my free time sitting on my couch watching tv.

Ok. Week 3 day 1 is completed. It was hard! It increased to 3 minutes at a time. I did it though, even if it was really slow. It was very hot compared to normal. I did the fitness court at the end as well. With the app they have as well. It had a voice over on top of a techno type music that told you when you were at 30 seconds remaining and 15 and when to move stations. Pretty fun! I did however cheat on my diet. When I went to the deli to get some low sodium turkey breast for lunch, I asked for a sample of the red white and blue potato salad. And I had a sample spoon full. Shoot me. Hahaha. It was good! That was, by the way, the first piece of potato I have had since 1 month pre surgery.

This week will be tough to do the remaining 2 days of the training. I am shooting for wednesday and Friday. Thursday I am seeing peter Gabriel and sting in concert and cannot wait. PG is my all time favorite singer!

Week 3 day 2 done. I think I am going to knock day 3 out tomorrow. I went out a bit early today because I had to use my groupon for. Sensory deprivation chamber, also called a flotation chamber. It was my first time. Once I got relaxed I really liked the weightless feeling it gave me. Probably about 30 min in I was starting to relax and when they knocked to tell me it was time to get out I didn't remember the last 20 minutes. I highly recommend!

I was out of town for a few days, so I wasn't on BP. But I am happy to see you've been keeping up with your C25k and you are out enjoying the scenery!

Well, I did week 3 day 3 today and it was good! But I shouldn't have "read ahead" for week 4 day 1. Sounds hard! If I make it week 4 I will be really proud of myself!

goplay, those photos are awesome! I am going to San Fransisco for the first time at the end of the year. It will be my first time in the Northern hemisphere! You are getting me very excited

I started with the C25K and am now running 50km a week. It is amazing as I could barely run for 30 seconds when I started. The lighter you are, the easier it gets, so keep that in mind. As you become a stronger runner, you will also be losing weight.

Running 10km is as difficult for me at this weight as it was when I started C25K thirty kg heavier.

I hope I can one day feel the same about a half marathon Jamie!

the jump from week 3 to 4 is always tough. You go from a total of 9 minutes of running to 16 minutes of running!

I did it!!! I did it!!! 2 bursts at 5 minutes each! I seriously about peed my pants I was so excited!!! I have to try out new routes now because I go farther. Today it was nice and breezy so I went down to Chrissy field. It is very popular because it is a long straight stretch. I tend to like to explore and loop different places but decided today to keep it in one straight path. I knew it would be a tough one and I didn't want to be where there were a lot of people milling around after work.

I have to say, I am damn proud of myself! Thanks for all the support!post-286600-14688934952987_thumb.jpg post-286600-14688935181068_thumb.jpg

I started the C25k program last week... I'm using the timed interval app from zenlabs. Running M, W, Fri... so I have W2D2 tonight. My 14 year old (cross country running) daughter has been coming out with me and acting as my trainer, lol... makes sure I'm staying hydrated in this ridiculous Texas heat.

So far so good... no issues with muscle or joint soreness/pain/etc. I know that will likely change as the running intervals ramp up. My main issue right now is learning how to properly breath. I'm now aware that I have no rhythm to my breathing, so need to get that straightened out. Probably need to slow my pace a bit on the runs to get my breathing in order. Hoping to be able to run my first 5k on my surgi-versary (Oct 1st.)

My breathing is always difficult for the first few minutes and I have that ' you are never going to be able to do this' dialogue on repeat. I then get into a rhythm and can run for another hour.

I think I could benefit from seeing a running coach.

      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
