Week to go...

Friday, November 21, 2014

Having trouble logging in from my office I guess my MiFi minutes are high...slows down once that happens. But anyway went to therapy yesterday. Nothing left to do but build muscles in my legs to get almost back to normal. So that's on me. I still have sessions left so I'll keep doing what I can.

So after thanksgiving that will be my only focus. My mobility counts more but losing weight is involved also. The more I can move the more weight I can lose. So it will be mission strength building!!!

Ok starting to get back to a sense of normalcy. Went to therapy yesterday. I was achy and hurting yesterday. Got my rub down and rode the bike for 10 minutes. Used one weight machine and left. Wasn't in the mood for more. I did stop to the gym and walked the treadmill for 15 minutes. That wasn't comfortable so I only did 15 minutes. Did the elliptical for 15 and left. On Monday I did weights and crunches. Performed my therapy stretches too. My weigh in is still positive. Feeling a bit more in control with my eating. Got to start back journaling my foods now that life is moving back to normal. At least temporarily. My daughters will be here on Monday for the week so I know my schedule will be off.

Trusting that I will continue to make progress on the scale and eventually get over to the next decade of 250 something's before the year ends. That's my goal..

Happy Monday!! Yeah right...well it is said speak positive and not negative. Personally I see Monday no differently than any day! I feel blessed to be among those living.

My weekend is a big blur. It was very hard is all I can say. But thanking God were on the other side of the storm. We still have a rough road to travel but we will overcome.

My honey came home Saturday so that was indeed a huge blessing! I couldn't have made it through Saturday the way I did without him. Grateful!!!

I haven't been to therapy or worked out since last Wednesday. My weigh in this morning was 269.0. So I loss .06 still in my bouncing arena. Hopefully today I can get back to basics. I'm still tired but will get pass this

Good morning!!

I'm truly tired today. Had a family emergency yesterday that carried over into my night. It's hard to sleep when you got folks on your mind, but being awake and staying in prayer bring sleep in it's time. My family member still has a road ahead of them but we're trusting God to see them through.

Didn't make therapy due to the above nor did I get to workout. I ate well and only drank about half of my gallon. Yesterday was an eventful day! Emotionally I'm drained. I'll see how I feel,after work as to whether I'll workout or not..

My weigh in this morning has me at 269.4. I'm still bouncing around the same few pounds but glad it's on the other side of 270.

So I've been talking about taking a photo in a pair of pants that I couldn't fit. Well yesterday as I'm looking for something to wear one of those pairs of pants appeared. I decided to try them on and take the photo and stop procrastinating. Wellllll....when I pulled them up...they made it pass my thighs previously too tight...over my butt...previously mid rise and zipped and snapped. Well the snapped was a bit of a tug but they fit!!! No need to take a picture just wore them to work yesterday. The thighs we're lose and I rejoiced!! Now there's a few more somewhere in my wardrobe that were among the same status. Hoping when they roll around i have the same success! God is good!

Have a fabulous weekend

    The secret to a good night's sleep is to have 4 bad nights in a row. Then you will sleep.

In a better place today. Feeling quite positive on this journey and my path to complete healing!!

My therapy session yesterday was the truth. Even one of the other therapist said to me "Peter got you exercising a lot". I'm like yeah he trying to make me workout on the sly...but I handled what he threw my way. Well he got me when he took me to the squat rack...his plan was to put some weight on it but that was not my plan. I never realized how hard that exercise is. I watch folks use that in the gym with heavy weight on it and I'm thinking the rack is taking the majority of the weight. Boy was I wrong. I only had the bar but trying to push up was using some serious body strength. I feel it in my bones today. Good burn but definitely challenging and it took me straight out of my comfort zone!! Not only that but looking at myself in the mirror as I did the work nd seeing the body chub was very motivating to say the least. It told a story I was not happy reading. One thing I do know yesterday was just another chapter in my book of life. I got more chapters and I will get better.

He originally had me using the stability ball against the wall squatting. That was pretty difficult and the fact that I hadn't done any since last Tuesday didn't help. So I will be adding these wall squats to my regimen.

I have learned so much since I've been going to this place. Mainly I learned that everything my surgeon did was not in my best interest. He told me no squats or lunges and no biking. The doctor there said I need to build thigh muscles and leg muscles I can squat up to 90 degree angle until I get stronger. Lunges are a no since it's hard on the knees. The bike is perfect I just have to lift the seat so that my legs are extended. So I'm feeling pretty positive going into my last few visits. I just got to dig deeper and stretch outside my norm.

My goal today is to finish my gallon of water, workout and eat the foods I brought to work. Stay focused!
