I managed to make some good choices but did zero logging or posting during that period. My intent was to jump in full force on my return last Friday. Not happening as quickly as I anticipated. Forced myself out here today to post where I'm at and completed assignment 1. I will do the rest of my shopping over the weekend coming up. I did manage to buy some fruit, veggies and yogurt and cottage cheese and have shakes at hand all the time. I look forward to getting to know all of you who are in the same 50's zone. I'm at the uppper end of fifty now at 58 and have no idea where time has gone to get me here!
I am having a full knee replacement on August 27th so I am working around the knee in my workouts. Pain is not a fun companion, but that's where I'm at for now. My goal is to get 20 lbs off prior to the surgery which is totally doable if I stay on track. So I will post every day in my Camp group and to you ladies. Good bad or ugly I commit to post. Have a fun and safe 4th and I am going to take some veggies and a shake along to the bbq I'm attending just in case the chicken on the menu isn't what I expect.
So whoop there it is and for now I bid you ado.
Hey there Livinwell,
Oh there is such power in posting where one is at. All the best with the knee work around, be safe and careful. I just spent the last 10 weeks recovering mine and still in process...yet, I do not need a knee surgery. All the best to the up-n-coming knee surgery. You sound well prepared in your moving forward.....wooo hoooo. So, welcome back to here and thanks for your sharing.
I find this thread and the gals here so inspiring!
I did notice something in your posting.....and my moto is, use what works and toss the rest. So, if you are open to some feedback----I noticed that you state "with your goal of 20 lbs gone before knee replacement ""if"" I stay on track it is doable.....what if you switched it up a bit with
"""AS I stay on track....I am 20 lbs less by my knee surgery!!!!!!! This may sound alot more empowering. Give it a go!
Blessings, Chris ... and happy 4th to you and yours
