back to the grind:

What? Me gloat? Never. Not until we are done and in the playoffs. I'll just say it was a very satisfying win.:mad2:

Now, weekend was a complete bust. Holiday party Friday night and 5 beverages. UFC night at friends house Saturday night and 4 beverages. Just not good.

Monday-upper body circuit training with 11 reps. Followed that with 80 minutes of cardio.

This morning-60 minutes of cardio.

Yesterday, didn't get above 0 here. Today, not much better. Let me just say, I HATE DRIVERS IN THE WINTER. Took me 1 1/2 hrs to get to work today when it only takes me 35 minutes normally.:blushing:

I was over the win by yesterday morning. Just like I was over the Steelers loss by the next morning. Only problem with the Steelers loss was that I made a bet with Steelers fan at church to have to wear the winners hat Sunday morning at church. SUCKED.:blushing:

2 more games and we'll see where we sit then.

You know what sucks? Going on a business trip, taking your workout clothes but forgetting your runners...my only shoes were black slingbacks....hardly appropriate.

Back to the Y today. 30 minutes working on back muscles; 20 min the wave.

dh packs his all the time; but 9/10 they never get used - even w/his runners!:smile2:

today is my day off fr working out, however DH is home and we have movers coming shortly to move us from downstairs - upstairs, as that part of the remodel is done....and then they can gut where we have been living for the last yr....AFTER the NYR.

i'm sure i'll be doing some lifting or giving LOTS of direction.

Yesterday: Fatality on the HWY, better known as blood alley, which caused me to get home to late to work out.

Today: 33 minutes treadmill @ 4% incline 1.25 miles. I am feeling tired. Where is my energy????

Ah. bliss. Nice long slow 10km run on fresh legs after a rest day yesterday. Boy it was nice. Weather perfect, not too hot. Only problem encountered, workmen doing new lane along Narre Warren Cranbourne Rd. Oh well, let em look. I couldnt hear their hooting with their ipod going. Although I bet it looked funny, I bounded DOWN the hill looking like a Kenyan Marathoner, I staggered UP the hill an hour later red faced, sweating and a good deal slower!

I chose the right music this time. Last time I planned a slower longer run, Doug had put some ACDC on my ipod. I nearly killed myself keeping up with the beat of it - the endorphins kicked in early and I was like greased lightning. Trouble is I puked when i got home :ohmy: 10K in about 45 minutes will do that to you! Especially when your normal time is about an hour!

Tues P.M.-worked 3 hrs extra, so got to gym late. Still managed to do 40 minutes of leg workout. Followed it up with 20 minutes more of cardio on elliptical.

Yesterday was 85 minutes on elliptical. Very tired after doing legs so late on Tuesday night. Don't think I had enough recoup time.

Today A.M.-50 minutes of upper body workout. No cardio as I have a class tonight.:ohmy:

I see that it is probably too late to join this December challenge, as I see it, this thread is for more a daily accountability tool right? Any one set a January 09 exercise challenge yet? What are the rules if any? Do you just set your own goal for this thread? and report daily? Just curious I am new to LBT but have been lurking for a while. I still want to lose 70 pounds. Thanks for any info.

It is never to late to post your exercise on the monthly challenge thread. Usually Lulu or Ceradad starts the new monthly thread the first day of the month.

There are no rules. When you have time, when you remember post the exercise that you did for the day. You set you own goals. We challenge each other.

Good luck!

Okay now I know why I am so drained. I have forgotten to take my thryoid medicine for the last 7days. I called the refill into the Pharmacy and total forgot to pick it up. How crazy is that? :huh2:

No one wonder my stamnia is defunct. So I will get my RX start taking my pills and get my energy back.

      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.
