I managed 20 with Simmons yesterday, tho admittedly some of that was cool down stretches. Still, when I got on the scale, it was down again. Nothing like cardio to help burn those calories!

I'm waiting for my shipment of yarns from Jo Ann Fabrics. I've been crocheting afghans for each of the grandkids, including the "steps" - they were so excited when I told them I'd make them each one of their own.

Had 3 week post-op check up today. X rays showed the new joint is doing well, and my hips are pretty even. Home PT has ended, so I got a prescription for outpatient - made my first appt. for next Tues. After I digest a bit I'm going to see about doing another 15 or 20 with my buddy Richard!

Today for the first time in AGES I did part of a Richard Simmons workout - just 15 minutes, cuz I don't want to overdo it. I also took the stairs the "normal" way, each foot going to the next step up, then down. Yay! Progress! emoticon

Going out today - first time since going home from hospital on the 5th. It's super cold out, and I also have to stop at the PO to mail some packages, and at the grocery store to get PRODUCE! (I want SALAD!) My friend is taking me, so I offered to buy her an early dinner after the running around. Shel

I have been sleeping better, and moving better, and keeping systems regular...the problem is, I still can't do a lot of good cardio, and so my weight has been creeping up. I know this is a temporary setback, but still, it will take a long time to recover and lose that weight again.

Apparently when reading the directions for my pain med, seeing "3" I just figured 3 x day. When the PT came yesterday and was going over things, she questioned that, and lo and behold, it was one EVERY 3 HOURS as needed for pain! OH! Hey, now, that makes it a lot easier to sleep! emoticon emoticon

It is hardest to get comfortable in bed. I did not used to sleep on my back because it was uncomfortable ON my back - but now, it is better than on my side, trying to keep my legs from crossing. Challenging, but I've gotten a little better sleep, although I still have to get up frequently to use the potty. I have to make sure that I take the pain med to keep things under control. But it definitely is doing better, little by little.

Went to breakfast with one of my coworkers and 2 FORMER coworkers (we work in different schools now.) It was fun to catch up. One of the teachers is going to be having knee replacement and has been out from work since October. I had a BIG breakfast. So I have to go easy the rest of the day! Especially because I'm not getting much activity due to pain. Shel

Today I have to leave off taking my pain med, reason being, they want it out of my system so I don't bleed too much during surgery. Reasonable! I'm just apprehensive of how I'm going to be feeling this week. Glad surgery is just around the corner!

Surgery is scheduled for Feb. 3. As I was helping my grandson with his homework, I exhorted him to cover his cough - "Nina" (me) doesn't want to get sick and have to postpone the surgery!

Had my last pre-op appt. with my doctor - they did an EKG, and everything looks good. I got these special wipes when I went to the hospital for the pre-op workup, which I have to use 2nights before and then the night before surgery, to super-cleanse to avoid infection at the incision site. The instructions include putting on FRESHLY LAUNDERED nightwear each night, and sleeping in FRESHLY LAUNDERED sheets each of those 2 nights. I told my daughter, "You are going to be doing a LOT of laundry!" emoticon

MAMI, sounds like you are on the right track, getting the muscles ready are very important and evenually you will see the pounds fad away.

When are you schedued for your operation ? I go next Wednesday the 28th. I have had all my pre-op testing and ready to go. Found I have hypoglycemia, but can control by diet.

Have to pack tomorrow, i bag for the hospital which will be 3 days and then another for rehab which will be 2-3 weeks. Planning on less time than that.

Barbara

While I haven't been doing the seated workouts EVERY day, I have been doing them more FREQUENTLY. My weight is still stuck on "high" but my surgeon commented that my leg strength was pretty good given the condition of my hip. So, I'm encouraged.

True, one would think that they would push for healthy foods.
Last night DD made turkey for dinner. I had some for breakfast and lunch today! The carcass is being cooked for stock, and it smells so good, while also humidifying this dry air!

Had a good day today, enjoyed a bran muffin I had made and put in the freezer a while ago.

must make some more as I am having my knee operated on, then going to rehab. The diet there doesn't look very healthy. I was surprized at this. The majority of the clients were up in age and should be eating healthy, but......

That's right. Part of the battle is establishing healthy habits. Focus on that. Eventually the weight loss will kick in.

True on both accounts - counting calories, and getting exercise. Right now I'm having difficulty with the exercise due to increased pain and lack of mobility. I'm trying to watch the calories, and do what I can, but during the holidays of course I gained weight, and it's all I can do for now just to maintain. I suggest focus on maintaining - if you're not GAINING, that's good! Don't give up!

Hi Shel, I'm so demoralised lately about my weight. I can't seem to budge the scales at all? I have walked and walked today AND done housework, i'll have to keep it up and then weigh myself on Friday. I watched a tv show tonight about weight loss journey's it was good and the doctor said to the volunteers that counting calories is initially the most important part and then exercise is important to maintain your ideal weight. I think exercise is important to tone up as you lose weight too, am I right? Well hope you are having a good week. I am about to go shopping for groceries and will have to make some good choices.

Opting not to attend church but rather listened to some sermons from my previous church online - besides my personal Bible time. I've done my re-surg exercises, and I also want to do the seated stuff. Well, I don't exactly WANT to, I just know it would be OOD for me to do them! emoticon

Sounds like a good plan Shel to think ahead. I wish you luck with your operation and recovery. It's a very good idea to keep moving but go gently on yourself.
Today I have slept most of the day it's just been one of them days I needed sleep.

My daughter convinced me to go for disability NOW, not wait until surgery. After all, it's no good being on the point of tears going in to work, and while I appreciate my coworkers' solicitousness, they should be able to focus on our kids, not on ME. So, I'll be getting the papers to fill out for disability (about /2 my regular pay) to kick in after I use up my remaining, what, 10 or so sick days. Meanwhile, today I did three of Spark's seated workouts. I can't just sit and veg! I need to keep the muscles toned as much as possible and keep the weight off if not lower. So, I should be Sparking more. Shel

Aww Shel , that's no good being in pain with your hip. I hope the weather warms up soon and then it won't be so hard on your body.
Today I've been food shopping for a few bits like mince and vegetables etc. Also gathered some rubbish I've collected and took it to the skip which felt good. This afternoon I have a doctors appointment to sort out my meds. I'm on anxiety med propranolol that needs to be on repeat prescription etc. so will sort that out.

Have a great WEEKEND! emoticon emoticon

Good for you! It's hard for me to totally skip bread. Usually I go for whole grain though. But this week we've had BAGELS, yummy!
I didn't go to work yesterday because the cold just made my hip hurt so....I went in today, but, oh, the pain just radiates from the hip up and down my leg and back! emoticon Shel

Eating no bread at all

Mine isn't until Feb. 3rd. I will be SO GLAD to have it. The cortisone just doesn't last with this hip.
The pre-surg exercises are about all I've been doing, alas! I did some seated stuff ONCE. Big deal! Shel

Yup - I started doing the exercises. I want to be prepared for surgery and therapy!

Today we start our two weeks' vacation. I want to bring my resistance band downstairs to follow the routine on the computer - Spark has some good stuff. Well - to be honest I don't really WANT to, I just know it would be good for me! emoticon Shel

Mami, you are so fortunate to be near your grands. My grands are all grown up but I have such wonderful memories being with them. They would spend the summers with me. Now I have greats but live in Florida, and they are up North so don't see them.

Check your book, there are exercises in there more than likely

I have a booklet he gave me - I'm going to check it again.

Today at my school two of my bonus grandkids sang in their choirs. I brought my camera and recorded both, since Dad and (step)mom weren't coming. Tonight another grandson is singing in HIS school chorus. I'll drive to that one! Hopefully one of the parents will come too. If not, I'll do something special with him just before or after.

Did your dr give you exercises to do before surgery ? I am going to have a total knee replacement end of January. I am doing exercise to build the muscles around the knee so the recovery should be shorter. Days when I have a lot of pain I just walk. I was riding the bike 60 minutes a day but I think I over did.

Have a good day, best to you and all

I haven't been able to pedal on my bike - had a SHARP pain in my hip, and I don't want to do any more damage before surgery. I hope during the 2 weeks vacation I can get into doing the seated cardio and resistance bands routines...Shel

The snow IS pretty...I wonder if I'm gonna have to shovel or if DSIL or DD took some initiative...I really need to get myself some new boots, as the ones I have are kinda tight - since my feet have splayed out and then they swell after a while. Ah, aging! Shel

Well, I got a LITTLE shopping for Christmas. I got the set of the Chronicles of Narnia for the 5 at-home grandkids. I got 2 board books for my grandson in Ireland, and some flavored coffees for my DD there (and DSIL). I'm thinking of sending a gift card to ex-DIL and the 2 grandkids in Ohio - she would know what they have already, and what they need/want. I detangled the lights on Saturday and then yesterday my oldest granddaughter decorated the tree. DD and another grand put garlands on the railings and bushes out front.

I got a cortisone shot in my hip on Friday, cuz I was in too much pain to work. Shel

aww sorry you put weight on but i'm so confident in you that you will lose it again in no time!

My sis in law is sick, her heart rate is very fast and has been for days so the family is rallying around to support her. She is in and out of hospital and on bed rest, ugh.

I've ate healthy today Shel, its a start, Lol. had fruit salad for breakfast, ham sandwich and yoghurt for lunch and chicken stir fry for dinner.

Have you been Christmas shopping yet? I bet your house is busy at Christmas.

bye for now. luv Kate

REALLY, Dec. 8th? That's my oldest daughter's birthday too, only she'll be 37! Hey, if you want I can be your "spiritual mum" like I am to so many "kids" (teens and young adults) that I've met in Peru! My DD Abi was born between blizzards!

We finished celebrating Thanksgiving...had off half of Wed. and the rest of the week. Back to work today - 3 weeks until Christmas break! Well..."Winter recess", since not everyone celebrates Christmas.

I put on a bit of weight over this break - not surprising. But I'm back in the saddle again.

Thanks Shel, it must have been hard or that little girl to be told by her mother that she wasn't loved. very sad.
My mum takes the piss out of me and other people she is quite highly narcissistic I believe which is not good. Although my mum had her problems with her own mother which I understand unfortunately she brought us up the same as her if not worse and to me and my sister and treated my brothers completely better than us, ugh. I have not had any kids and would not wish to ever treat anyone badly. Sometimes i'm too much of a walk over though with people and don't stand up for myself.

ps. It's my birthday on the 8th Dec, i'm 36.

I was blessed with a good Mom, affectionate, gave us the discipline we needed...but one of my good friends from high school had a verbally abusive overbearing mother...and one of my stepgrandkids had her mother tell her she didn't love her - I think she was like 8 or 9 years old (she's 11 now). Her Dad brought her back to our house and my daughter saw the crushed look on the little girl's face, and held her tight as the poor child sobbed. Not every parent is good. Sometimes they themselves have issues. I'm sorry you're not close to your Mum. But maybe you can find an older woman who can "mother" you. I've done so to a number of younger folks.

Hi Shel,
how are you?
I am having a late night and just thought i'd stop by for a chat. I've got loads of housework to do tomorrow. Been having family issues lately which have been upsetting mainly my mother who doesn't care for me at all, sad. I envy these people who are close to their mothers as I have tried so hard over the years in vain. Never mind I can't put my emotions through hurt any longer I am staying well clear.
This week I'm cutting down. I've had a treat today. Tomorrow I will do better.
Take care of you and yours!

It's technically autumn here by the calendar, but the weather is wintery right now. We have a small accumulation of snow in my area, but to the west of us they got hit pretty hard. If we get a lot of snow, I doubt I'd be up to shoveling, though I may try it. I still use my bike. Fifteen minutes this morning.

Had a great long weekend. Today FEELS like Monday, so when we remember it's WEDNESDAY it makes us all excited and happy - Hump Day! Plus it's a pay week. Friday I'm driving in to work so I can leave directly for the retreat. Shel

aww..sorry you weren't well. It does feel so much better once you've got it out of your system though, nausea sucks.

4 day weekend, yay!! that's great!

Friday I went shopping late and today I've cleaned a lot. Diet still isn't progressing but I will keep trying to cut back even though its the holiday season.

have a super weekend Shel and stay in touch, love hearing about you and yours. xx

Wednesday morning I started out fine but soon into the morning I began to feel nauseous - didn't even like the smell of the school lunches cooking. emoticon
I had to sit with one of my students in the nurse's office, as she started to throw up, and I told the teacher she might want to see about getting someone in for me - I could stay with our little girl till she was picked up, but then I would go home. I left school around noon, my son-in-law coming for me, and climbed into bed. Spent the rest of the time between the bed and the toilet, and felt a bit better after throwing up my breakfast. Stayed home yesterday and started feeling good enough to eat a little something. Back at work today. Glad it's gonna be a 4 day weekend! Shel

Today I had social anxiety going out and am left with the after effect of a panic attack, shallow breathing. However I do feel fired up now to tidy the house and make myself look presentable. It doesn't help when your world is a mess so I've cleaned and going to get a shower and put a colour on my hair I've been meaning to do for ages. I gotta lose some weight now, so out of something bad has come something good. Me feels like making a change.

Today I started taking a different pain med. I had called the orthopedic doc about something stronger, and was told it's not exactly stronger, but some meds work better than others for some people.
I think I already note a difference in pain level.
I'm hoping it will carry me through till I get my new hip!

I know what you mean about eating for comfort. I tend to eat for emotional reasons - if I'm very happy, excited, sad, angry - you name it! But with Spark I've been doing better.

Didn't go to the museum this weekend, but have plans to go this coming Saturday, with the kids - IF they don't get into trouble. For instance, one of the twins has a tendency to pick his nose and wipe his booger on the wall, then LIE about it. The lying is the worse of the offenses. He's a chronic liar, thanks to the influence of his mother (not my daughter).

I got back on the bike yesterday and today! Yay me! Shel

I got piano lessons for my son when he was little, and then bought him a guitar which he learned with help from guitar-playing friends, till he got quite proficient. Now he also plays drums, flute, and harmonica. A one-man-band! (AND he can ride a unicycle and juggle, though I don't think he can do it at the same time YET!) Shel

haha, hide mistakes with fur ...that's funny!

I've been up half the night , kept waking up with bad dreams and then going back to bed but i'm up now. I have a plumber coming in a bit to fix a broken pipe to the sink in the bathroom, so had to be up early for that. I'm hoping to go to a music class this morning all being well just depends whether or not the plumber comes early enough, music group is 10-11am.

I'll catch up with you later and ps. that's awesome that you do paintings as well in your spare time, women of many talents, hehe

I like oils except they take so long to dry. So I prefer acrylics. But I haven't done PAINTINGS in a while. I occasionally do colored pencil drawings. Clay is my main medium though.

Guitar, cool! You gotta develop callouses on your fingers, of course. Music and art are great hobbies.

I prefer to do animals cuase they're easier than people - you can hide a lot of mistakes with fur! emoticon

I use oil mostly and paint people, portraits mostly. I'm not great or anything just beginning to take it up after giving up on it long time ago cos I didn't get the grade I wanted. I am doing it now because I feel motivated and happy to i'm also considering taking up guitar as a hobby, think I would enjoy that. Thanks for asking.

I'm about to go food shopping now will chat tomorrow.

Oh, cool! What kind of paint do you use, and what do you usually paint? Or are we talking about walls?

I haven't been drawing at church since before I left for Peru. But I was drawing in the mornings in the library at school, giving the kids pictures to color. But lately one of the other TA's has been printing up pages for them to color. Maybe I can start writing letters again during that brief time, after the kids breakfast and before we take them to wait for the bell to dismiss them to class.

I got on the bike for 20 minutes, which is pretty good considering I was thinking of stopping at 10. Ten is better than none, but 20 is even better.
It's SO good to see you back on the message board! emoticon Shel

It's not unusual that you can't talk to someone in your immediate family. We can't choose our relations! I'm blessed that my older daughter and I talk about just about anything and can vent to each other. But we need other friends in whom we can confide.

School is interesting to say the least - very different from my previous 14 years, as now I'm working with little kids who have more challenges. So I get a thrill with every step forward they make. Shel

Today I went to see my psychologist and I was still wound up about my family yesterday, ugh, but the psychologist was very kind and said I was looking well. She is very good at listening and I am not a big talker but somehow I do talk to her.

The weather here is getting colder we are definitely seeing Autumn in all it's magnificence!

How is school Shel? I am thinking of going back to college next year to do Art and Design.

Hi Shel, it's early morning here. I've missed our little chats weve both been away. I got discharged from hospital Tuesday afternoon. phew after 5 whole weeks. I was feeling much better Wednesday and went to my mum and dad's but had a let down going to my mums because I found out she has been talking to everyone about me it's so disappointing that she does this and makes me feel small. I have never been the type to talk about people and their business without them knowing but my mum has always done this to me, ugh. Now I feel quite sad, sad that I can't rely on my family for so many reasons. I'm sorry to vent.

How are you?

chat soon, i'll try and be on here everyday again. emoticon

Yesterday I did 30 minutes on the bike. Today only 10, BUT, I pushed myself to speed up the rate a bit for a few of those minutes.
I will be so glad when I get to the orthopedic doc on the 8th to talk about hip replacement. Shel

It has been very difficult to get into an exercise routine because of my new work schedule and location. Before, i had to be at work at 6:40 - so I got up before the kids. Now, going to the same school, and leaving close to the same time (with my coworkers), there's a scramble for the bathroom. I may have to get up at 5 again so I can exercise and shower. Then I'll just collapse when I get home at 4:30!
