No legs/cardio last night, lazy:frown:.

This morning, 3.1 miles @ 1% incline in 30 minutes. Followed with 10 minutes of walking and 15 minutes on elliptical.

Tonight, I will try again to get legs in. We'll see.:cursing:

As you can see in my auto sig, I am 1 wk ahead of my goal of 10 miles/wk. Knees are holding up GREAT!

Yesterday: 60 minute treadmill 4% incline for 3.40 miles jogging and running.:cursing:

Today: 60 minutes of slow walking 5% incline 2.68 miles. Really sore on my left hip.

Lulu: Get back into the swing of school is so hard, but once you find your rhythm, I have no doubt you will complete your program.

I just need to find my rhythm, so I can turn in my thesis and argue it in front of the oral board..so close...:)

Today I did my first "New to the Sport" workout. It was a coached bike ride. I sucked. :cursing: But I had fun. We went for 16 miles and, unlike my typical rides, there were hills.

Afterwards I dropped my bike off at the bike shop because I'm sick of the front derailer not actually changing gears when I press it. Plus, it became very clear that my seat is too low.

Great work by every one! Today I got busy for the first time in months. 20 minutes on the stationary bike and 20 minutes on the treadmill. I actually jogged for five of the 20 minutes in 2.5 minute intervals. First time I've jogged in over 25 years. Felt great!

Great Emep! Doesn't it feel great to get back to jogging. I know your just starting out, me too for that matter, but every day we will get stronger.

Hey, guys, I just returned from our girl's day/night out and for the first time I played Wii. OMG, it was so much fum. I bowled a 180. I have never bowled. And I boxed, which worked up a sweat! I am addicted.

I went to a swim clinic. We swam for about 1 hour 30 min and I got to see a video of myself swimming where I realized it looks like I never move my feet. Hmmm.

i'm a bit hooked on tennis & golf right now.

DH bought tiger woods 09' golf & i'm hoping it takes a few strokes of my "real" game...LOL

also if you like yoga - that is another decent activity on wii.

today - heading to the gym will do an hr of cardio: treadmill/stairmaster.....as soon as i can find my running shoes - have a dog that likes to hide them on me.:)

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

        That photo looks like one of my phlebotomy jobs. lol

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
