I've not exercised since Monday! I officially SUCK!!!:lol:

Cut yourself some slack. You were at the Water park the other day and tomorrow...I am sure that you were doing a lot of walking and were quite active. You don't suck; you are just busy...next week is always coming around the corner.

As for me, I did:

Monday: 1 hour Water aerobics

Tuesday: 1 hour water aerobics

Wednesday: Off was having stomach pain

Thursday: 1 hour Burn Baby Burn water aerobics

Friday: Off (have to work, dang it!)

Keep up the great work everybody.

whosya-good luck tomorrow.:lol:

This morning I only did 55 minutes on the elliptical as I am doing Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society tonight. I'm going to try to be on the track from 7 pm until about midnight. I'm shooting for around 10 miles in that time period. I know, only two miles per hr, but I want to make sure I make it the entire 5 hrs. Plus, I have to work tomorrow.:confused:

Lulu, have a great trip!!!!

Daddy, good luck today!!!

Well, this exercise is going in fits and starts for me this month as I continue the recovery process, so I'm revising my goal. However, I think I'm onto something more steady now. I got two more workouts in, 30 minute walks on Thursday and Friday.

Have a great weekend everyone!

luluc-thanks. Yup, closing in on the goal. Hoping to make it by my bandiversary on Aug. 28. Considering I was told that this would be a "slow" process, I'll be happy just to be where I am right now.

daddy-yeah, it is amazing how far we have come in such a short time. Now, inquiring minds want to know. How'd it go today?

As for my adventure last night with the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, due to weather we got moved inside the Jr. high. That SUCKED!!!!!!! Not only did I have no way of knowing how far I actually walked, I couldn't walk as much as I wanted to. Considering there were 48 teams of at least 8 people each, it was just too crowded most of the night.

I roughly figure I probably got in about 8 or 9 miles from about 8 pm until midnight. Most of it btwn 10:30 and midnight. Oh well, the most important part was that we raised on $150,000 btwn all teams for cancer research.:)

Best part was DD, who is only 6, danced for 1 1/2 hrs straight while DW and I walked btwn 10:30 and midnight last night in the gym. While she started off dancing with herself and trying to imitate what the older girls were doing. By the end of the time, the older girls were dancing with her and trying to imitate what she was doing. Most of what she was doing was contorting herself into weird angles and basically almost breakdancing.:thumbup:

Whosya and Cera, you guys just amaze and motivate me!

Frangi, glad you're back. Keep it slow and easy for now.

Lulu, I'm jealous. Take me with you. I need out of this heat too.

Sorry bout the Cancer Walk Cera!

Ok here is today report.

I did a Full Duathlon today and about died lol!

The 5k run the first 1/2 mile was all uphill..then i finished the 5k in 31mins (ok for the amount of hills for me)

Then i cycled 30K (18miles) and it was SOOO hilly. I have never done that many hills. Of course i bought a new saddle and tried her out today which wasnt the smartest thing to do. I know i would of been sooo much easyier on a Road bike instead fo my mountain bike.

I got up to 36mph coming down one of the Hills:eek:

Then another 5k..boy my legs had trouble going up that hill again after coming off the bike.

I made it though. 2hr 39mins. The winner was 1hr 40min:eek: but he is a pro Triathlete (and my coach too :biggrin:)

Hard to believe i could keep my heart rate up for over 2.5hrs.

After the race i started feeling a lil dizzy and seeing some spots in my eyes :mad:. So i got some Water Melon and banana and i was ok.

Let me see if i can post a pic of the hill that kicked my butt and my new saddle.

Great job daddy! Keep up the great work. Hills are definately killers aren't they?

TexasBecky, thanks for the kind words. I do what I can and then push myself just a little harder.:party:

As for me, I did 65 minutes on the elliptical last night after work. Then, 30 minute run on the treadmill this morning for 3.15 miles. Followed by 35 minutes on the elliptical.

Tomorrow is the start to my next 6 wk lifting cycle. Body is definately getting antsy.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
