February Exercise Challege



Recommended Posts

I still have a lot of fat on my tummy, and my port already sticks way out. It is very easy to see when I just stand normally. It's really gonna look weird by the time I get to my goal weight! I don't care...small price to pay, huh? :)

whos,jess and jm-

thanks for welcoming me back, missed you guys. Sounds like you all are doing great. jm-I did post b4 and 3 weeks post-op pics on my LBL PS thread and will post new pics probably at my 3 month doctors appointment. Right now will only be going to the gym 3 days a week for a couple of weeks so I don't overdo it. Take care everyone!

Hey everybody,

I finally got to the gym today and it felt so good. I was excited to get there. I did 40 minutes on the elliptical, and 10 minutes on the treadmill, I worked arms and abs...Then I hopped into the pool and swam for only 15 minutes, but it felt really good just to have some time to work out..

I have more pain in my port when I do ab crunches.. but it's only a little sore but that was when my body was not used to the exercise...It hasn't been bad though..

Okay well, I hope you all have a great work out today!!!

Are there any specific ab workouts that we should be doing? Or just our basic, not to mention, boring crunches? I have been doing 100-200 on a stability ball...

Brandy- I use the ab roller at the gym, it has no weight to do my crunches on, then I do two ab machines with weight...That is where I started at!

Keep up all your hard work Jess!!

KEVIN - Good for you on the running! And WELCOME!

Here is the link to the spreadsheet again: http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pdgDInAagx9z-xy8VoCZ8Bw&hl=en

Next week I will be cleaning up the spreadsheet of those who have dropped off. I'm not going to do it yet because I've been so slack on it in the last two weeks. PM me your info if you need updating (or wish to be added), as I have entered all info I have received to date.

I'm still going to the gym every day for 1.5 to 2 hours for weight lifting. Going to the cardio room three days a week, also, to ride the recumbent bike for 25 minutes each time. Got on my trainer this morning, though, for about an hour...which felt GREAT! :eek: If it is nice this Saturday, I'm taking my bike out to the park and out to Arlington. I need to get in a good, long training ride of about 60 miles. The MS150 will be here before I know it and I need to be in shape if I'm going to make 150 miles in two days! :)

      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.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
