Just got back from GB and had a perfect report from my surgeon, so I'm pretty happy today. He also has cleared me for my backpacking trip this fall! Woohoo!!! Now, I just have to regain my strength and mobility, day by day, and I should be back on track. No driving or lifting for 4 more weeks though, but I can't complain.

Did some walking in a big mall yesterday and had lunch at a little, out of the way Packer hide-out tucked out of town. Feels great to be getting back to normal!

1. Add at least 2 blocks per day until I regain my 4 mile routine. Yes, Yes-tons of walking
2. Continue to eat nothing but healthy, nutrient-rich food. Yes, No, celebrated with a huge lunch, but it was worth it.
3. Resist the urge to over-do. Yes, Yes
4. Work on strengthening weak leg; do something each day that I couldn't do the day before. Yes, Yes- great progress! Having a friend of mine (a doctor) re-evaluate the nerve damage today.
5. STAY POSITIVE!!! Don't let negative thoughts (or people) derail my recovery. Yes, Yes

Yo Mike: No goals this week? What about Tori? And ... Where's Hope?

R'Soul: I love baked sweets too. Good luck for another - 5 lb week. If you get tired of sit-ups, try these: CrissCross (caveat: don't watch this video if you can't stand skinny bodies.)

Amen! Pigged out on sweetrolls yesterday!

Thank you Dmartz. I actually meant baked sweet potatoes not sweets. Baked sweets would get me in trouble.

Absolutely! That was an unfortunate error on my part! Sweet Potatoes! Yams!

P.S. Comfort Food makes me feel fat.

I'm still on the wagon and on track except that I haven't exercised yet today.

I've been busy with family the past three days and haven't had time to read our group thread.

Kudos to those of you who are doing well and big cyberhugs of support to those of you who are struggling.

The day is still young. That said - better to get it over with ASAP.

Default Hump Day is Here!!!!

Got up and walked 3 miles today ~ then I found out that work was cancelled because of the rain.

Sticking to my goal of eating resistant carbs and protein. Tomorrow I should be working and if so, I have to pick up my truck at 6:45. That said, I'll have to get up at 3:30 to walk so I can leave the house by 5:45. Gonna be a long day but, I CAN DO IT!!!

Question for you all.....100 days of fish...what are your thoughts?



todays calories: 1525

My first thought would be to freak out about all that mercury in fish!
