1 week back into the swing of things!

Saturday, December 08, 2018

Today marks one week of post op! It has been quite the roller coaster of emotions!

Last Friday I went to the Doctor to be released from surgery. The things he told me where not exactly what I wanted to hear. I had a sling and whatnot done and I am no longer able to
Bench Press
Anything pushing or pulling or straining or even lift more than 20 pounds
EVER AGAIN.........
Unless I want to run the risk of having to have surgery again!

Um I guess there goes that entire workout I had planned while I was on bedrest.

I got released otherwise and was healed, but my human mind wanted to focus only on the things that I was told I couldn't do instead of focusing on all the positive.

I got into the truck, and I just started to bawl and say why me why cant I do the plan I had goals I am so sad I will always look mess I will always have this gut that I have never had I will always look bloated... it was horrible and then I wanted to go straight to mcdonalds (or some other fast food place) and buy the meal and upsize and wallow in my self pity.

Fortunately I had my hubby with me and he said babes there is so much that you CAN do now. Lets look at the good!
He then took me to the gym where we talked to the personal trainer and we are having him come up with some other ways i can tone without weights and he is going to set a plan just for me!

I worked out that afternoon and then I was feeling much better. We did some work around the house, we are remodeling the entire upstairs and we worked nonstop all weekend... I ate really well so I was pumped to go to the gym to weigh on Monday....
Well I showed up there and weighed the same as I did on Friday.... I was FLOORED but really I am not sure where this mindset is coming from ... So I looked at my hubby and said please make sure that I do not weigh in again until January 1... which is what I always do... I cant do this once a week thing because I get so discouraged!!!

Anyways so Monday, Tuesday were pretty okay. then Wednesday I was super frustrated and wanted to just be back into my clothes pre surgery and again I was complaining...
Wes said stop complaining and do something about it...

Wednesday I did HIIT on the elliptical for 60 minutes and got off of there feeling amazing. I did body weight ST on Thursday and then yesterday Killed it on the elliptical with the HIIT then we bowled..

I met my 12,000 step goal all the days and still had times of negativity!

Here is to a new week.... new goals... and more self love... more time to realize that I a human and that this will take some time and that I am also 46 pounds down from my heaviest still even after a baby and a major procedure!!!

Have a wonderful week everyone and lets remember to love ourselves and our bodies.
Be kind to ourselves and reward our accomplishments no matter how minuscule they seem... little things add up to big ones.

    Think of this time as a new challenge and beat it. Be clever and find out new ways to achieve what you want to achieve. Let all this negativity go, and focus on the positive side of this. You have so much to be positive about.

    Keep going forward and you will reap the rewards that go with it. You can do it, I just know you can!

    Have a great day today, with the promise of a better tomorrow.

    What a journey you have been on. There are so many positives! Starting with your support from your husband. Then the ability to pick yourself up and keep going. I really like the idea of a trainer helping build a solid plan. Those "I can't 's are now "I can do!" . Your on a path to success. Focus, one day at a time. Rejoice that you have so much support from you r life long partner, so wonderful!

    I think you did great by not gaining weight! Sound like the trainer is going to help you and that's a plus also. He will hold you accountable and you are not going to fail! Glad the surgery is behind you and now you can move forward. emoticon

    I love the elliptical HIIT, amazing workout and I think fun. Keep plugging along and don't let stuff get you down. You are stronger than the emotions!
