Post Op wk 45!!!

I dont know what to say or where to begin. I feel like I am stuck for some reason. I dont know if its cus I am not going to the gym thats making me feel this way or what, but the weight isnt moving like I want it to anymore.I was wondering if I should go back to the basics of eating like my 1st few wks of post op. That maybe Im sneaking in old habits when Im not paying attention. Or Not getting enough water. Not sure what to do. I have my 1 yr appt coming up in a month and a half and I feel like Im not far enough along. I must be crazy.

Weight loss this wk was -.2 lbs. Not a gain so I am happy, but still disappointed. I am going to up my calories to maybe 900 from 700 usual and see if that helps. Who knows.

Saturday Sept 21 was a cold n rainy day. I went to bed hoping that the rain would stop by the time the alarm went off at 5 am, but to no a vale it did not. So I got up showered and dressed, made sure the girls were up and we got ready. It was all of our 1st 5k's. It was such an exciting morning. We drove down to Willoughby Hills and parked the car. At the stage they were doing warm up zumba and we were goofin around and warming up.Then we got in line to be in the first wave of runners. I caught a fanny pack and a rubber bracelet from the announcer at the start of the race. It rained the whole time, but I didnt let it stop me from enjoying my 1st 5k. I took off with my friends by my side and slowly started to get a head of them. I did this race for me and I wasnt going to slow down for anyone. I slowed for water and towards the end I slowed to make sure I could still see the girls behind me. When I saw them I kept on running. Once I was through the last color and down the road I could see the finish line. I took off like a bat out of hell and booked it to the finish line so fast that Isaac and Dad couldnt see me coming haha.

I was so happy that Isaac and my dad, the two men in my life that mean the most to me were there at the Start of the race and at the Finish! I love them both soo much!

I am proud of myself for doing this for ME and completing it and in good time. Already have my next race picked out Sat Oct 5th RoctheCroc at Crocker Park in Westlake, to help fight childhood cancer!

Here are some great photos from the Color Run!

Start of the Race!

Post Op Wk 44!!

Good am everyone!! This is Post Op wk 44 for me! I just had my 10 month Post op Surgiversary! I cannot believe that I am 2 months away from 1 yr out! I have accomplished so much in the past yr and half.  There are some updated pics in the picture tab of my 10 month progress. Weight Loss has slowed down quite a bit. Frustrating to say the least, but I am still making every attempt possible to keep it going.

I have been switched to 1st shift the last wk and a half and I have adjusted pretty well I think. I am still getting in my 3 meals a day, and 3 runs a wk along with the Squat Challenge that’s about half way over with.

I am 3 days way from running my 1st ever 5K Saturday, I am pretty excited. I have some awesome ladies running with me and some awesome supporters that are going to be waiting for me at the finish line. And what a better way to celebrate my 1st 5K than to go see Ralphie May Saturday evening.

I am still struggling to get in my fluids mostly water, so I am going to try to do the ½ your body weight in oz of water you should drink a day, so if I am at 178/2= 89 fluid oz of water I should be drinking a day! I will try and do this as much as I am.

As for weight loss this wk I did pretty good, managed a 2.6 loss. I am happy with that and would be happier if I could get to lower 170’s .

Check my pics tab and pounds gone forever tab for updates!

Post Op Wk 43!!!

No much to update here this wk I am bouncing around the same few lbs back and forth which is quiet annoying. Haven't been able to get away from 179-180 in about 3 wks now. I'm wondering if its because of the squat challenge that I have been building the muscles in my legs and I am not losing lbs because of that. I am up to 110 squats and holding weights in my hands as I go down and back up with the squat. Seems to be feeling pretty good while I do that so I am happy.

Also my work hours switched this wk from nights to days, that could also be a reason why not movement in scale this wk too. And I have horrible allergies and boogies going on in my head on top of it all hehe.

The excitement is building as the time drifts down to a week and half til my first ever 5K run! I am super nervous and super excited I can wait to get 1 run under my belt hehe

And only a month away til I turn 30! I still cant believe that I am going to be 30! What what!

Okay thats all I got for now... Happy Fitness week to all!

42 Wks Post-Op!

September is here I am 10 days way from 10 months Post-Op! Wow almost to my 1 year surgiversary! Crazy how fast time has flown by. I am hoping that these next few months are little better with weight loss than the past few wks. I seem to keep steady for a few wks then drop about 10 lbs over a few wks then hold steady again.. Its quite annoying to see. Last wk I was 179.8 this wk I was 179.6

I have a few things to look forward to that are coming up soon. I registered for MY FIRST 5K! My C25K training will be over with this wk I have two more days of it. I cant believe how fast that time went by. I am so proud of the fact that I stuck it out and am going to finish it! I will be running the the Cleveland Color Run 5k on September 21st. with 3 of the greatest girls. I cant wait! I already know I will cry when I cross the finish line haha. I will have 2 wks after training is finished to help improve my run time, so we shall see if I can.

Plans are in the making for my 30th Birthday thats coming up Oct 12. I am excited to see how that evening goes and cant wait for it to get here, so I can celebrate with some of my closest family and friends.

I dont have much else to report... Oh the squat challenge has started and is under way, we are on the first rest day after 3 days of squats. 50-55-60 squats done! Today is a rest day and its a I needed rest day, these squats are no joke. Tomorrow will be the start of the next 3 days of squats at 70 for the day!
We just got to remember to...

I am hoping that I can make it through all 30 days so far so good, I am addicted to the feeling of sore muscles hehehe.
