Today was 55 minutes on elliptical again. No lifting tonight, got softball.

As I mentioned yesterday, I did a 5 mile run on the treadmill in the morning. Problem was, I wasn't even thinking. I had legs workout last night. About halfway through the day, I realized my knees were a little sore and wasn't sure how the workout would go. Well, to my relief, it went great. Did everything I needed to do and didn't feel any worse for wear.

luluc-I keep forgetting to ask you, I see you live in the DFW area, you a Texan and a Cowboys fan?:thumbup:

hubby only WISHES i was a cowboy fan. was born & raised in NYC & a big Giant fan, rather World Champion NY Giants (LOL). i'm Texan by marriage:wink_smile: - i DO root for them most wks however, if they're playing NY - i can't & the spousal unit talks a lot of trash.

i think this will be the first yr in our marriage that we are NOT tailgating frying turkeys before the game on thanksgiving @ TX Stadium :frown:.....

LuLu,

Love the new avatar -- you're absolutely adorable, and look how tiny you are!!! All of your hard work is really paying off, sister! Congratulations :thumbup::thumbup::lol:!

I'm still taking it slowly with the exercise, but will crank it back up again once I meet with my Dr. and get the all clear.

Off to Miami for a few days, will check back in next week.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Ok, I can give you that. I hate the Giants, but less so than the Iggles and Deadskins. Sorry to hear about your traditional Thanksgiving not happening this year. I made my first pilgramage, finally, to Texas Stadium last October to see them crush the hated Vi-queens. Had a great time tailgating down there.:)

As for me, yesterday was upper body and cardio. Had a great workout lifting followed up by 65 minutes on the elliptical and 12 minute run and 5 minute cooldown on treadmill.

Today, I have a wedding reception tonight, so I had to combine lower body and cardio today. Another very good leg workout followed by 55 minutes on elliptical.

I've been dragging arse the last wk/wk and a half. Been really run down. Then, Wednesday night was softball. I had a few barley beverages (ok, about 6 over 4 hrs) nad suddenly felt much better yesterday. Realized I have been cutting out the carbs trying to concentrate on the Proteins lately. The barley sodas gave me the carbs I was needing. Gonna make sure to get more carbs in each day now.

Who knew that something good could come from something considered bad?:)

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
