Preparing for surgery

Monday, April 01, 2013

7 weeks from today I am scheduled for my left hip surgery. My goal was to lose 20 pounds before surgery - I'm currently down 15 so I still have time to lose the last 5 and more if it works out that way.

I enjoyed doing the videos each day. I knew even if I did not get my cardio in I would at a minimum get a video in. 7-Minute Arm Tone-Up with Dumbbells emoticon Week 2 day 6

I plan to continue doing them as I finish up the 28 day boot camp.

Swimming planned tonight. Can't wait.

    I have never had a hip done but have had multiple knee surgeries and I know how painful bone surgery is. I commend you in what you are doing with the exercise. It is going to pay off not just the losing weight itself but getting in shape. Surgeries are hard on the body and the healthier you are, the better. Please keep us posted. emoticon emoticon Love, Chelsea

    Wow - I'm so impressed that you are exercising so much when you surely must have a lot of pain with that hip. Awesome, girl! You can get those last five pounds off. And your arms are going to be good and strong to carry you through.
