I had my hip replacement surgery on October 12, 2010 and now almost 7 months later I feel great! I have been given the OK to exercise as I choose, no running allowed.

I had my hip replacement surgery on October 12, 2010 and now almost 7 months later I feel great! I have been given the OK to exercise as I choose, no running allowed. I am also continuing with weight lifting, focusing not just on strength but also range of motion and stability, replacing hand weights with resistance bands and including variations of planks. For almost two years I have been eating a primal diet with great results- increased energy, much better sleeping, greatly reduced joint pain and swelling, no more mouth ulcers (must have been the grains) and much healthier hair and nails. This summer my DH and I embark on a new adventure, down sizing and building a new home on a country property. My passion for gardening should be satisfied for a few years at least as we start all over with landscaping.

For 2011 :
-eat clean- fresh fish, poultry, eggs and occasional red meat, 8-10 fresh freggies daily, seeds and nuts
-pay closer attention to portion size
-reduce my wine intake
-maintain walking program
- spend at least an hour in the garden daily (not in winter!)
-read a book every week

Goal- maintain my weight in the low to mid 130's

Hi MJ. I was so hoping you would be here - I've not been active with Sparks for sometime, but am always checking to see if you're back. Hope all is well with you and you're back here and posting soon!
