Hi - Just about 3 years out of surgery. Still best thing I ever did. But, the weight is start I g to creep back on and I know why. Lack of exercise. Feeling a bit of panic and working to my exercise back into my daily schedule. Having a hard time with the little voices in my head being so negative and sabotaging my efforts. Trying not to pay them any mind. But does anyone have any tips, book recommendations etc.. To shut these buggers up? Thanks !

For me, getting started is the hardest part, so I make a deal with myself. Normally I try to get 40 minutes of cardio in every day (Stationary bike with programmed routine). On days I am not feeling up to it, I tell myself "Just do 15 minutes, then you can quit if you want."

Probably 99% of the time, I end up doing the whole 40 minutes, since once I am up and going, it's not so bad. It's just getting over that initial hurdle. When I am feeling low energy, 15 minutes sounds so much more do-able than 40, which can seem daunting. And, if I really am tired and stop at 15 minutes, hey, it's better than no exercise at all!

I don't know why I have such a hard time starting my workouts. Once I get going, I actually enjoy it. I get to jam out to my favorite tunes, and I always feel better after I am done. Yet every morning I find myself putting it off again lol!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
