My friend has a membership to Bally's she likes it a lot. So do you run? Is that your goal to get to the 5k? I am just wondering. I have started going back to the gym recently and I was just thinking how I would really like to run in a marathon or local charity runs. I do the elliptical at the gym a lot. I am up to about 40 minutes but I would like to be able to do it for an hour. How long do you do cardio? It looks like your doing a great job, keep up all the hard work.

Two hour workout at the gym today. Leg day...couldn't get up to 360 on the leg press, darn it. Just couldn't do it...I tried, though. I guess I need to acclimate a little more to 270 before I add another set of plates. We are working out so hard and fast these last two weeks that I am really seeing results! I love it! Can't wait for tomorrow! LOL

WHOS - Thanx for the wise words to stay in and warm last weekend! Although I did travel to Houston to do it, I did rest quite a lot. Between that and all the meds from the doc, I am *almost* back to my regular ornery self!

WHOS - So sorry you are a sick puppy like I was! I hope your day didn't go as badly as you had anticipated today. Push through, git 'er dun, and get home to take your own advice of blankies and soup!

Hour and a half at the gym working chest today. Soreness setting in from the leg workout yesterday.

Ran 2 miles yesterday! I cant wait to lift weights again on Friday. Skipped the Ballys and worked out at the hotel as they have a pool i can swim in after and Ballys was a dry facility.

I thought about finding the local Y and using my away thing but local guys told me if i go down there 'expect to get a cap in your a##!' So i skipped it:)

Still got a sore throat like crazy, might see my doc for a little of the pencillian tomorrow.

Good job Stef! Keep going! Work those muscles! So many woman i talk to are afraid to lift weights thinking they will get all bulky and it just doesnt happen with women. They are just not made that way (unless you take ALOT of steroids)

You are going to look super hot!!

      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.

      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

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      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.
