Arm exercises & cardio done for the day. The clouds did lift and it turned into a pretty hot day. Here is my sunny day view from my hammock.

Did my 5km walk this morning, used my walking poles. I was slower than a herd of turtles, but I did it. Also did my arm workout.

My before pic of my glorious bat wing... and a pic of my wee boy enjoying the sun and samples at the farmer's market on Saturday. It's thundering here today (Happy Canada Day by the way!), but they say it's supposed to clear up for fireworks tonight. 20190701_122308.jpeg 20190629_102951.jpeg

B-Side Question(s):

Did you have realistic or dysmorphic views of your body prior to surgery? Did it change?

I didn't realize what i looked like until I saw photos... Still the same

I think I was (and still am) rather dysmorphic. The only time it would really hit home was when I would go clothes shopping and in the change rooms at the plus size shop I would frequent they had floor to ceiling mirrors. Getting undressed in front of those mirrors was always a slap to the head about my reality. Now, I'm struggling to see the changes in my body, but that's normal. I have to remind myself to look for little things... I can cross my legs easily now, and yesterday at church, I was sitting with my hands clasped over my stomach and the back of my arms were touching the back of the pew. It was a bit startling to realize that I hadn't felt that before.

Day 1

  • Arms done. (K, I’m gonna say it, the arm exercises are a tad on the easy side. Now, of course since I said it, I will likely soon find it gets exponentially harder)
  • Did some butt exercises...I wasn’t sure how many reps to do for full effectiveness, so Mr. suggested I do a single exercise until I start to feel the burn, then do 10 more. I did 3 different exercises, and needless to say, my glutes are on fire.
  • Here’s my sunny (Happy Canada Day 🇨🇦) pic. Actually had our holiday weekend BBQ yesterday, and ate waaay too much (comparatively) and am paying for it a little today. I probably had more carbs in one day yesterday than I did the entire past week, and today I’m feeling unnaturally bloated...my lower stomach feels rock hard. It’s like I have abs or something, lol. Maybe thats my secret to a firm tummy...Carbs! Sure would save $$$ in plastics.

Prior to surgery, I don’t think I had any unrealistic perceptions of my body. I was fat, and I knew it. I may not have liked it, but I knew it.

Now, however, I suspect I don’t know exactly what I look like, as in, if I’m normal looking or too thin. I also suspect this is because I’m not used to the smaller me yet and just need more time getting re-acquainted with myself.

Time will tell.

Day 2 of the top challenge calendar done. I did 20 minutes of elliptical at home. It is so hot out, I don’t feel like leaving the house today!

No beach pictures today but I’m headed to a lake with beaches tomorrow.

Day 2:

  • 1st (easier) arm challenge: Done.
  • 2nd arm challenge: Not going to do this one this month, will do the 3rd one instead...
  • 3rd (harder) arm challenge: Done-ish. I didn't do the bicep curls. The big arm circles were surprisingly tiring! The last set of tricep dips killed me a little.
  • Beach Pic: I convinced Mr. and the Kid to go for lunch downtown today so we could swing by one of our city's fake beaches and take a picture for today's challenge, lol. The pic below is Sugar Beach, which so happens to be right next to the restaurant we ended up eating at. Too bad it was overcast today though...

@ms.sss That beach is charming, which province are you in?

B side question. Probably Poipu beach in Kauai since my stepson was married on that beach. The only picture I have without people is this one I took at night.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

      2. sillykitty

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

      3. Krestel

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
