Hey Warriors,

Great workout at the gym last night...back on the elliptical trainer (because of the upper/lower body combo) and burned the same number of calories in 30 minutes as burned in 50 minutes the day before. I'm all about efficiency, so that will definately be a part of future workouts.

Walked yesterday in the AM, but not at work - preparing for committee meetings. Today I walked with family and DDog in the wind and rain, and will go to the gym again tonight. That will make 3 days this week :wink2:

Gotta get in another day's activity on the weekend - whether that will be a longer walk or a gym session depends on the weather.

Question for those using the Daily Plate - do you log your work hours as activity? I looked up what they say I burn, calorie wise, as a desk jockey and was surprised. If I added that in as activity every day, I think it would give me a false sense of security...thoughts?

a drop of .4% body fat - catching up ceradad, @ 18.8% right now.

Darnit, I have to get going on that again. Can't be beat by a little woman.:wink2::crying::mad2:

For an update: Wed. night hit the legs again. Yesterday, had SWAT P.T. testing followed with weapons qualifications. Interesting sidenote, last time I wore my dropdown holster for SWAT was in Sept. I had to readjust the straps on my thigh because they were waaaaay too tight and cutting off circulation due to the MUSCLE.:sleep:

This morning was 45 minutes of upper body followed by 25 minutes on elliptical. All I had time for. Have a Christmas party tonight so no more today.:angry:

Jachut: I totally hear you. Any time I increase my work outs I start to feel drained and run down, like I am coming down with a cold.

I'm here, I was just too weak to type for a while there, having done Cardio Coach Vol. 6 OUTSIDE. Holy cow that was hard. I must have looked ridiculous, I had to walk during the low intensity phases, then I'd mouth the countdown ten to one, and suddenly take off like I was being chased by demons, lol. Scarlet faced and dripping with sweat and gasping like I was about to die.

Why do i love doing that to myself? Am I insane?

The closer I come to vomiting, the better I like it, lol.

Good morning Warriors!

Friday was a bust, workout-wise. Had to wear my boots to work (normally wear my cross-trainers) so I had NO shoes to do a lunchtime walk or my evening workout.:confused_smile: Note to self: buy extra pair of crosstrainers on EBay and leave them in my workout bag!

Saturday DD and I went to the gym. 30 minutes on the elliptical, plus a full route through the circuit training area which included upper and lower body work. Tired, sore muscles, but feeling great. Had Protein shakes after workout for both of us instead of normal Breakfast, so a GREAT start to the day!:)

Walked in the afternoon with DD and DDog, so it was a great Saturday. Sunday was a slow day, exercise-wise...walked with DDog in the morning, but had a potluck after church. I was pretty good - ate mostly Protein, left the home-made biscuits alone:crying:

Slow Sunday night - studying and homework. Back on the grind this morning - full walk with DDog, DD and DH, planning to walk at lunchtime. No gym tonight because of class.

Seeing my Primary Care doc this afternoon for the first time since surgery. I think he'll be pleased with my weight loss - I know I am!:lol::thumbup:

      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.
