On the road to success

Friday, November 04, 2011

I'm 6 months post-surgery and am feeling great. I haven't been on SP since my surgery. Not sure where my motivation or results have been coming from, but the weight has fallen off. Now my primary doctor believes that in another 20 lbs or so I'll be able to get off of my diabetic medicine and cholesterol medicine. Since I currently have plantar facatious and cannot do walking on the treadmill, I decided to buy a set of DVDs today. I cannot wait for them to come in. I'm also going to start back on my Wii to alter what and how I exercise.

Recovering from Surgery

Sunday, May 08, 2011

These last two weeks have been hard on me. After having surgery which does not include workouts until up to 8 weeks post-op, this has been hard on me. I'm recovering well and get to go back to work tomorrow! I knew surgery was the easy part, and so I didn't worry about that. It has been the recovery and now I remember why I was worried about the recovery. Healing is hard and slow but the doctor is happy. emoticon

Staying on track

Sunday, February 20, 2011

I'm not sure what happened last week, but I sure fell off the fitness wagon. Not sure if the stress at work, the stress of finding a new job by July 2, or just not wanting to go to the community center my reasons. I know that these are excuses for not wanting to work out, but the bottom line is.....I need to do this. I need to stop making execuses and just do it. Either stop at the community center on the way home from work or be sure to do some Wii at home.

I joined a 8 week Diabetic Challenge and I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing by re-doing a week, but if I want to be true to me and the challenge.....I think it is the right thing to do.

    We all fall off the wagon from time to time. As soon as you know what you did, get back on track. Redoing a week of any thing is always a good thing when you feel you need to get back on track. We're here for you. emoticon Never give up.

    I would think it would be okay to redo a week. We all fall off occasionally and the important thing is that you are back. Try to focus on yourself and what you need for a while and before long you will be back in your healthy habits as far as exercise.

A New Beginning

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

emoticon Christmas season to me has always meant a new beginning. With the snow blanketing the ground none of the "old" stuff is there until the spring. My goal as my 1 year spark-anniversary comes close is to create a new healthy me by the time the snow melts and springs comes along. This time I will be doing this transformation with the help of the C25K program from podcasts and the Belton Community Center. emoticon

C25K - W1D1

Monday, December 06, 2010

I did it! I finished the first day of C25K. I may not have gotten far, but I finished and I finished standing. I was scared the first 60 seconds of jogging, but after about 20 seconds I was confident I could finish each 60 seconds. Thinking tomorrow I will do just the machines at the Belton Community Center to let my body rest, especially since the program says to do this 3 times a week.

Yeah Me! emoticon

    I do C25K, too! I'm starting W9 tomorrow. It's a great program! Have faith in it and yourself and you'll love it. The confidence alone you gain from being able to complete a day is great!

And you should definitely take a day off between runs. You will need the rest. And don't care about speed or anything like that. Just focus on completing each day. If you see that you like it and you want to keep running, you can always increase your speed later.

Good luck on finishing the program and I hope you'll come to love running as much as I and many others who try C25K do!
