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
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
Patience is a virtue-just not one of mine
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
Hahahahaha! Happy dance! I made 90 degrees of bend, happy dance! Now just maintain and keep pushing. Slowly, consistently, I can't believe I got this far! And I'm good to workout on the recumbent stepper at the Y every day as long as I don't go ... Read more
It's raining. I wanted to go to the Y and work out today while my son was at school. I'm not. It's really too dangerous for me to go out alone in the slippery wet for no good reason.
I want to work on my leg! I really do! But I also know t... Read more
