Cardio! Woo hoo! Wait, ouch!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      4 comments

So I started back with my cardio. I'm a month post-surgery so I have no restrictions other than being lazy and out of shape. A week prior to surgery I did 3-10ks. A month later, I'm huffing and puffing after 30 minutes. Pouring in sweat at a... Read more

I ate like a fat kid...

Monday, September 24, 2012      4 comments

Ugh. I ate like a fat kid all weekend. And I feel like crap today = coincidence? I think not. I went home on Thursday to spend the weekend and pick up my new laptop. It was also my grandma's 93rd birthday so I went out to dinner with he... Read more

My arms are sore from yesterday’s strength training exercises, or from the fact that the back of my arms are so numb I may have given myself carpet burn doing crunches because I couldn’t feel it… whoops… the weird things I’m going to have to get... Read more

Dear Abs, please come back.

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      3 comments

Dear Abs, please come back. I noticed my wonderful abs have left me. Well in three weeks I went from crazy strong abs, to *wibble, wobble* barely hold myself up abs. So last night BAM 500 crunches on my ball. I didn't have a lot of time so I ... Read more

Busy Weekend + all clear from the doc

Monday, September 17, 2012      5 comments

So now my excuses are gone. The doctor said on Friday I have no restrictions. At all. I can weight lift and run a marathon (haha, as if). It still hurts when I jump/bob so no running for a bit. But now I feel like I'm using the surgery as a... Read more

This was my status this morning: SHRINKING_SARA is okay guys... I'm going to go step on the scale for my 2 week post-surgery, no-exercise break from the world. *I will not hate myself, I will just change what I see. I went into my weigh-in ... Read more

I've avoided Spark -- Now I'm back

Monday, September 10, 2012      8 comments

Post surgery exercise restriction was killing me mentally. I tried to keep going on Spark, but I turned into a weirdo. Instead of being inspired by everyone working out and eating healthy I was jealous. Green eyed monster jealous. But to... Read more

I want to work out... I want to work out... I want to work out... I want to work out... I want to work out... Per doctor's orders, I can't work out... Cue to yesterday where I felt good, I looked good ;-) and I went to work in the mo... Read more

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      4 comments

I'm going nuts. I really wanted to work out today. But I'm in pain. So I didn't. And now I noticed I had trouble raising my right arm today. My left arm was okay, right -- holy crap. Then at like four I noticed that there was a hard lu... Read more

Shopping Therapy + steristrips and surgery = painful

Monday, September 03, 2012      7 comments

I just spent the day shopping. I just needed to get out of the house. I can't stand being locked up, especially with my mom. It's hard to be motivated to eat healthy when A) you feel like crap and B) your mom is stuffing her face full of food ... Read more

I've figured it out, I'm need to quit eating...

Monday, September 03, 2012      9 comments

So I'm six days post surgery and I am so frustrated I want to throw things. Part of it could be the fact that I've been stuck in the house for a week... with my mom. Part of it could be that I'm up 8 pounds since the surgery, and c'mo... Read more
