I had therapy this morning-at 0730! As in "oh my gosh, its EARLY!" WAY too early to work that hard! But it was the slot that was open with the therapist I like. And I've been great about working hard-just not so good about slowing down. Um, yeah... Read more
Ha! I managed to do it!

I went and was able to get from the locker room to the pool-by myself! Which means I get to take my water exercise class!! Yahoo! It gets even better. Before I went to the pool, I did 15 minutes on the NuStep, with the workload moved up to ... Read more
Signing up for fitness class

Which I'm not supposed to do, because I couldn't talk my son into going with me over the weekend to make sure I could get from the locker room to the pool safely. Therapist told me make sure I had done it at least a few times with someone with m... Read more
I hope it's not the flu!

I woke up feeling achy, cranky, and yucky. So I went back to bed. I didn't bother getting up until the neighbor knocked on the door to borrow some coffee. Which was when I realized I REALLY feel like...well, not good. Don't you hate it when you ... Read more
Great trainer!

I just finished my first orientation session with a trainer at the Y. The trainer's name is Neal, a very polite young man, with incredible patience ... Read more

But I will apparently be getting MUCH better at it! Or am getting much better at it? I am voluntarily offering to put my second surgery on hold to take more time to recover, take an exercise class, and get some more weight off. I don't WANT... Read more
Setting exercise limits
Wednesday, October 17, 2012      3 comments

Well, today was (possibly) my last therapy session. We're waiting on the insurance to decide if they will cover more or not. But I had the therapist go through the class schedule for the Y with me to decide which 3 classes I was signing up for. ... Read more
Oops-I did it again.
Tuesday, October 16, 2012      4 comments

I over-did it again. I made 2 shopping trips today. One necessary-I needed a lock for my locker at the Y, and I picked up some mineral ice patches and heat patches for pain prevention while I was there. I figured it makes sense to keep a few in ... Read more
My amazing wonderful husband
Sunday, October 14, 2012      4 comments

My husband may not "get" the weight thing, he may unintentionally sabotage my calorie limit when he's home (which is rare since he's a long haul truck driver), but God bless the man, he is so good to me! He got me NFL mobile for my smartphone! A... Read more
I had a candy bar...

So what? You say? Or oh no!? Aha! Not quite. See, I had A candy bar. One. Singular. Not a bag of candy bars, not a few candy bars, not even a king size. Okay, I'm not down to a single fun size yet or totally off chocolate, but still! For me this... Read more
Still raining

So I am still stuck in the house. But I'm still sparking along! I've been stretching and exercising the leg, managed to get into-and more importantly-out of! The bathtub yesterday, oh my gosh, did that feel good! And today I think I will just s... Read more
Rainy Saturday
Saturday, October 13, 2012      1 comments

So much for going out to the Y today. I'm too chicken to risk going out in the rain after falling Thursday in perfect weather, rofl! The knee is feeling MUCH better today, thank God. The rest , ice and pain pills didn't hurt, but I know where to... Read more
Not as bad as it could have been!

Therapist said the fall wasn't so bad. I will have some colorful bruises on my tush where I landed, but no one will see those. I didn't do any damage to the implants! The knee appears to be fine and stable. I did stretch the muscles and ligament... Read more
Bad steps. BAD, BAD STEPS!

This blog is probably not about what you think it is about. I did not make any unwise food or exercise choices. What I DID do-was fall on the stupid stairs going out of the house last night to go workout at the Y with my son. WITH my new kn... Read more
I'm making myself a Christmas present
Thursday, October 11, 2012      2 comments

I've decided that since I spend so much time making presents for everyone else, this year I am going to make myself a Christmas doily. I am tatting it. I have wanted one for seve... Read more
