Today I'm going to use the hand weights and the loop bands

Tuesday, August 04, 2020

I've had them for about a month and it's time to use them. I've been good at not stepping on the scale the last few days, so it's time to start another goal. It's now two months since I checked in to the hospital, and several weeks since I checked out. I think it's six and a half, but anyway it's somewhere around there. I'm feeling so much better than I was that I stop and think about it just about daily. The lingering effects of the surgery are that the dogs can't jump on my stomach like they used to, and that I can feel the area around the incision pulling when I stand for a while, but neither of those are huge things.

I was interrupted in my blog post because I had to help chase my future step-daughter's escaped dogs, but the chase was successful so we're all back home. I could have done without being scared for them but the exercise part was good.

    1CRAZYDOG, I think everyone with dogs has done that! I know that I spent a lot of my childhood chasing one particular dog. She lived to 13 but that was a bit of a miracle because she had years of close calls!

    And that tugging feeling will go away. Takes time. So glad that you're feeling so much better. It is GOOD to remember that daily. Attitude of gratitude, right.

    Glad you caught the escaped dogs! That IS a work out. BTDT!
