KAREY! So good to hear from you! I'm glad the surgery went well and that you are home recuperating. Baby yourself through this phase and I'm sure you will be feeling better before you know it. In the meantime, I hope you have good drugs! LOL Bless you, girl! I'm wishing and praying you a quick recovery!

Stef,

I don't know about anyone else but I would much rather you posting on here with us than worried about the spreadsheet!!! I haven't been the greatest at keeping up with tracking my goals, and I am sure not doing 300min in cardio still. So as far as I am concerned please don't feel obligated!! Glad to see you posting!!

Karey~ wow, I can't believe your up and posting. You go girl!!

Okay all well had such a great day last week and was hoping it would last, but another blast from Winter is upon us in Ohio...Supposed to get any where from 6-12 inches of snow...Yuck!!! So no gym for me on Friday, I just hope I can get to zumba tomorrow.. Okay, Take care all!! Karey get some rest and take care!!! I hope you have great workouts!!

Thanks, Jess! I have been feeling SO guilty about not having that "bleeping" spreadsheet figured out and updated. I am waving the white flag, though. I'd much rather be posting here, too. :tongue:

Well today is back day. Our favorite lat pulldown cable will get hit hard today! And more good news on tomorrows ride...the weather report has raised the projected temperatures over ten degrees for tomorrow! And if it is HALF as gorgeous as today, I'll love it! I can't belive that 24 hours ago it was snowing heavier than I've ever seen here in Texas! It didn't have a chance of sticking, though...the ground was too warm. Anyhow, the training ride and kickoff party should be fantastic tomorrow and turnout should be very good! WOO-HOO!

Today we did biceps and triceps at the gym. It was a short run, about an hour.

Also, Saturday was a training ride for the MS150, and it was fun! Then the MS Society served yummy BBQ and they made announcements which were very informative and we got to talk to lots of other cyclists from the area. It was great, and I got another ride under my belt.

I also just signed up for "Tour Dallas", which is a ride to fight against inactivity. There are three route options, but the longest is 30 miles, so I chose that one, of course! LOL That one should be a lot of fun, too.

Today was a running day on the treadmill. Total of 50 minutes, here is the breakdown:

22 minutes at 5.5 mph and 1.0% incline (I was told that running @ a 1.0% incline will make the run on a treadmill more like a run outside) for a total of 2 miles

15 minute walk at 4.0 mph and 2.0% incline for a total of 1 mile

4:40 minute run at 6.5 mph and 0 incline for a total of 0.5 miles.

8:20 minutes at 4.0 mph and 2.0% incline for a total of .55 miles

Total-4.05 miles and 840 calories.

Sidenote: don't know if any of you have seen the thread, but I'm looking into starting my own little training regiment of my days off from work to try for a mini triathlon (1/2 mile swim, 13-15 mile bike ride, 3.1 mile run). I'm going to do the first one on Thursday. I'll let you know how bad it goes.:tongue:

MY Goodness Stef is hitting it hard again...and exercisng alot too:)

YOu guys ROCK. Today i went back to weight lifting as part of my scheme.

I was adding extra cardio and less muscle but it seems i lose more weight when i do even cardio and weight trainning. I think its because it takes alot of cals to repair those sore muscles.

So this morning i did 45mins of weights and 45 mins of Spin Class.

Next week im on the road again in Ohio but it wont stop me hitting it...or exercising.

Oh no, Daddy! I never quit! That would kill me! LOL

I just haven't had near as much time to post with hubby being home. He's still home...this is the longest he's ever taken off from work, and it's been nice. I wish I could drag him to the gym with me more often, but he does go on occasion. And at my rides, he is my biggest fan, so that is priceless.

Hey, whatever happened to JM? I miss her!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ceradad! That is the first I've heard about your Tri! How exciting! I hope to be able to do one by Fall of this year. I will be waiting impatiently to hear how it goes for you. You HAVE to take pics and post them, too! How did you find your Tri? TriFind.com? I have a hard time locating them. You will do fantastically...just by entering and going for it!

      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.

      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
