Did the Wk 1 workout tonight :)

It didn't hurt nearly as much as the last time. I'm hoping that I'm not as sore either :)

Thank you again Mindy for the podcast link!! That was a lifesaver. I ran way too much the first time because I was guessing since I'm not on a treadmill.

Ok this sinus drainage is really killing me ! I made it through half of the work out tonight and i literally could not breathe anymore.

Do you think it would hurt anything to do it again tomorow . to either try to get through the other half or try to do the whole thing ?

I really really want to do this .

Hey Mindy - We so need rain, maybe that would flush some of the crap out of the air.

Not sure what to tell you. I wake up w/the sneezys but after a cup of coffee or 2 I'm ok. Hubby not so much, we put a humidifier in the bedroom last night, and that did seem to help. I work out about an hr after my Breakfast - or it's not likely to happen. Maybe switching night to day??? Not sure that fits into your normal daily schedule. If you feel like crap - maybe a good walk vs running would be best.

I am in too. I am in line to get insurance approval and then surgery, so I will get as far into the plan as I can. For those of you in the Houston area, the ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run is on March 1. Nothing like a goal to get you moving.<br /> <br /> Link for the race:<br /> 2008 ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run

I just a tad south of Dallas, & that looks like something doable for me, if not a goal to shoot for...thanks for passing along.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        @billybob I am thriving and breathing! That's a blessing!

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      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.

      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.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
