December Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Ooh, you must be feeling a bit crappy!

Today I did a circuit probably 80% all out effort, bit tired. This more intense training really wears you out.

Tomorrow, not sure. Might take another day off - 2 days off per week. See how I feel in the morning. Would like to maybe rest tomorrow, long run on Sunday.

Then I plan to drive myself into the ground next week as we're going to a friend's beach house the week after and I will probably do no more than a couple of jogs down there.

Jachut, a beach house sounds lovely right now.

Lulu, I am getting my RX after work today. Thank goodness it is Friday. I have been working late at work, then with the commute it is hard to get my personal stuff done (exercise and errands).

Anyway, back on track by tomorrow.

Yesterday: No exercise late work night. :biggrin:

Today was 45 minutes of lower leg workout. More snow this morning. Not nearly as much as they said it would be, so that is good. Unfortunately, we are supposed to get another 3-5" tomorrow.:biggrin:

Didn't do anything yesterday - the Y was closed due to the weather.

So far today 45 min of hard shoveling; round two in another 15 min or so.....

Round 2 - another 45 min of shoveling...

Today: No real exercise. Was at shopping centers walking and walking, but I didn't break a sweat. Picking up family from the airport for the holidays. I am swamped.

I am hoping tomorrow I can get back on track.:tongue_smilie:

Great jobs everyone!

As for me, back in the gym this morning for 45 minutes of upper body circuit training. Had a great workout. This is week 6 of my 6 wk cycle with 12 reps. Everything went according to plan. No cardio as I had to get to work and am working late tonight. This week is just not shaping up for much in the way for cardio.:biggrin: Hopefully, next week will be better.

Today a.m., 40 minutes of leg circuit workout. Had to hurry through it as I was dropping my Explorer off for new tires and my friend was picking me up. Plus, it is snowing AGAIN :thumbup: and we wanted to beat most of the traffic into work.

      Hate thinking about foods I used to love... Burgers & wings. Gotta stay focused. 😤

      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.
