June 2019 challenge



Recommended Posts

I’m not a huge fan of these “self love” parts. I’ll give it a whirl.

I’m resilient, funny, realistic, competitive, open minded, accepting, empathetic, sympathetic, progressive and forgiving.

I am however d.r.e.a.d.i.n.g. Going to the gym today. The strength aerobic class I have been taking is in an hour and I’m thinking of every excuse in the book to miss it. My plan is to suck it up and go, I’ll keep you posted. Feel free to shame me into going! 😁

I will do the squats afterwards.

I’m going to do #12 on days when I don’t care for the challenge. (I’m looking at you #11.)

I've been traveling for work so just hoping in now.

I was sleeved on 2/7/19

My goals for this month are

-Lose 10 pounds (that seems to be what I average in a month)

-Do 3 sessions of Bridge 2 10K each week. I just started yesterday with my first session. I'm training to run in a DC Comics 10K run this fall.

Good luck everyone with your June goals!

good luck GIF

Was slacking on these, so I caught up on them all this morning .... yay me!

Need to get a walk in today so I can meet my goal #2, of walking at least a mile, a majority of days.

If you go, I'll do another 1 hour walk after dinner tonite (on top of the 1.5 hour walk I already did this morning). pinky swear.

Herro herro. Surgery date 11/1/2018, RNY, SW: 286lbs, CW: 177lbs.

June-specific goals:

1) Reach 170? Eh? EHHHH? lol

2) Consistently go to the gym 4 times per week.

Yesterday was leg-day at the gym, but I think I can manage 20 squats today.

Ok, I compromised. I went to the gym but I did cardio instead of the class. I don’t know why I am so reluctant, the regular instructor is back today and I like her. I’ll go again, it is a good workout.

I did 30 minutes of cardio, 20 squats and I’m going for a 30 minute walk this afternoon to atone for my avoidance.

Pretend I went to the class @ms.sss !

That is a nice long walk, I get bored after a mile or 2. I need to find a better spot. Today off to the gym at 11 followed by the core class. Odds are we will do limb raises, however if we don’t I’ll add those in later.

#5. I’m a worrier so this could take all day. 😬

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
