January 2009 Exercise Challenge



Recommended Posts

Back @ it again on the treadmill. Added 20 minute/2 mile run with 5 minute cooldown.

Did the same thing as Mondays second run. Before the run, I dropped and did 25 pushups. Then, paused the machine every 1/2 mile to do pushups. After half mile, did another 25. Every half mile after that was 20 pushups including at the end.

i'm jealous.

was at the gym today, and saw everyone pushing hard... i just walked REAL SLOW for 40mins. my dr doesn't even want that much, as on top of the hernia it was discovered i had a small infection by the port site. so i'm just creeping along hoping not to get out of the swing of being in the gym.

i can easily be distracted:blushing:

Today: My mind is saying jump on that treadmill and go girl. But the rootcanal I had done on Monday is kicking my butt. My gums are swollen and I am taking vicodine for pain. But I cannot take the pain meds, while at work. So by the time I get home, it really flipping hurts.

Lulu, sorry about the port area and your hernia.:thumbup: I hope you get well soon.

Wednesday - 30 minute walk with the dogs. Any attempt to jog with them was met with an extreme lack of coordination. One likes to run out front, one likes to lag behind, and then there's me stuck in the middle. No jogging with the dogs, apparently.

I did supplement with 30 min of Wii Fit yoga and aerobics. I know it's not much of a workout compared to the gym, but at least I moved!

TQUAD64 - hope your root canal gets to feeling better soon. Take care of yourself.

You gotta take it slow and easy or you will make yourself worse. Make it worse and you definately will be backsliding.:thumbup:

Today a.m.-ran on treadmill for 16.5 minute/1.65 miles alternating incline btwn .5 and 2%. Followed with cooldown and then on to the elliptical for 35 minutes.

Tonight will be upper body. Thinking of switching it up and doing supersets for awhile.

I know that reading other posts should inspire me, but sadly it seems to have the reverse effect. I read a Ceredad or Jachut post and (figuratively) just throw up my hands and say 'WTH, why bother, you gotta go full out like those two to make a difference, and you KNOW that's just not YOU". Pity party for one right here.

My activities pale (are almost opague) by comparison...yesterday was fill day so the only exercise was walking briskly the 35 min from the train station to the clinic.

Today - shoulder workout with weights, and then 30 min on the treadmill. Compared to Tuesdays time, I shaved 2 minutes off the time for the same distance.

Tap-never, EVER, compare yourself to someone else. Use them for inspiration, yes. But don't compare to them. You have to remember, I am a police officer on a SWAT team. My job demands I be in better shape than most. Plus, I am looking at a change in my life (can't go into it right now) that I am using as my inspiration.

Just keep at it. You'll get there.:thumbup:

But we all have to start out somewhere and build up to the point that works best for us. I never compare myself with others. I always try to out do my last personal best. Not Ceradad or Lulu's personal best.

Lulu at this point, I just want them to pull the damn tooth out. My gums are still swollen. :-( I am going to try to get on the treadmill tonight when I get off work. Just have to see what happens.

      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.
