well, i put myself for 100 miles a week, and I dont know if I am going to get that or not.

I do have 60 miles in this week, but am going to have to fight the rain first part of the week it looks like,

I think I am going to start walking again at lunch time...maybe 2-3 times a week along with riding. Need to get the scale moving

Hello everyone. I never post on here I just read what everyone else has to say. I dont feel like anything I have to say is anything new or helpful. But I just saw this thread today and I have been wanting to join a exercise group because I need the motivation. I know its late but Ill make it up. I would like to do 30 minutes to start out just to get my body use to it. And then Ill work up to more. But for a few days ill have to workout twice a day to catch up. I hope I can do it. Wish me luck. Got to go charge the IPOD lol .

The swimming is under-reported because I was actually in there and moving around for HOURS... but I try to be conservative when calculating it so I can go for the most/best I can.

7/1 - 30 mins walking

7/2 - 30 mins walking + 20 mins elliptical

7/3 - 60 mins walking + 20 mins swimming

7/4 - 3 hours swimming (2 hours games and leisure, 1 hour laps, treading, and resistance)

7/5 - Zip. Zero. Nada. :tt1:

7/6 - 1 hour swimming, all laps, treading, and resistance

7/7 - 30 mins walking + ________________ (tonight!) :tt1:

Ok I did it.. I started my workout. My body is soo not use to that.. I ran/walked for 40 min. I have a question for all you exercise junkies does anyones "fat" have a painful itch when you are working out? If so why is that? My sides( my hips where all my fat is) my butt and my back fat itches really bad when im running. Also does anyone know a good way to get rid of back fat? I hate it and I dont know how to get rid of it. Its soo hard to hid under clothes.. Anyways til next time.

Meka,

Grats on the new exercise!

The itching is generally from sweat. Sweat carries out bacteria and salts and other elements you don't need in your skin. It settles on your skin on the fine hair on your body and acts as an irritant.

I have heard some say it is a chemical reaction causing fat to break down... but I haven't been able to find much to support it. Maybe someone else will have more, but I stick the irritant more than the instantaneous and noticeable "burn."

As for back fat, it's like any fat. Burn more fat and that will go away. You can't spot treat outside of tucks, Lipo, etc. It will come off when it's time.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      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.
