Learning the hard way

Friday, January 10, 2014

It's not that I didn't work out at all over the holidays. It's just that I spent more time hanging out with my new granddaughter. I usually work out 5 - 6 days a week and over the holidays it was a day here and a day there.

Now that my kids and granddaughter have left and I'm back at work, I'm back to my regular workout schedule. I feel like I haven't worked out in months. Who knew a few days away could feel like forever.

But, I'm back at it and plan to keep my schedule. Hopefully I won't take such a break next time. emoticon

    Grand babies are the best. Don't regret the time spent with her in the least. Just need to get up earlier the next time like I do on work days. And it feels good to be getting back to it.

    Those darn grandkids are usually WAY more attractive to hang out with than almost anything else we could be doing!!! I figure on this healthy lifestyle journey we all hit bumps in the road (heck, I've wandered off the road ENTIRELY before!). The IMPORTANT thing is that we pick ourselves back up and continue to head in the right direction. It sounds like that is EXACTLY what you're doing. Know there are lots of us right alongside you, cheering you on!

One week post op

Thursday, July 18, 2013

It's been a week since my second shoulder surgery in 6 weeks. I'm doing ok but still dealing with the aches and pain. Saw my doctor and have been cleared to start physical therapy next week. I may try some time on the stationery bike soon just to start to get moving.

    This one has been a bit rough, but it's improving.

Almost shoulder surgery time again

Thursday, July 04, 2013

Just a few more days of regular exercise before my next shoulder surgery. I feel like I've just gotten back into the grove of regular exercise since my last surgery. Praying I can maintain during this down time.

Changes I've Noticed

Sunday, May 05, 2013

My weight loss has slowed down, even stopped for a few weeks. But, I am losing inches and feeling better. My meds are almost out of my life. These are good signs.

    I am so happy for you! Only getting rid of the meds is already success. The weight loss will follow!
Blessings on your journey

Revisiting my fitness goals

Monday, April 22, 2013

Been on this fitness journey for about 4 months. Now that I know more about myself and about setting goals, time to revist my goals and get more specific.
