It’s Not Funny

I’ll tell you what’s not funny. It’s not funny when you go to your ortho surgeon to arrange for a cortisone shot for your other knee because it’s been acting up, but he tells you he thinks you’ve got a torn meniscus and that you need another frickin’ operation.

That’s what’s not funny.

I’m NOT going to hit another weight loss plateau and be stuck for months and months at the same damn weight. I mean, hell, I’m still rehabbing my shoulder after January’s shoulder surgery.

NO. I refuse. R-E-F-U-S-E. I’ll get down to a certain weight and then I’ll have the surgery… maybe in the spring.

The MRI is in November. I’ll know more about what’s wrong with my knee after Thanksgiving.

16th Day Working Out

Hopefully, this isn’t too boring for people to read… but posting about helps keep me motivated. I’ve never exercised more than seven days in a row, so this is great! And it definitely has made positive changes in my stamina, building muscle, and losing weight.

Even though I wasn’t as into it today as I was yesterday, I did a cardio workout. I even extended it to 30 minutes. But I can tell I need to ice my left knee, darn it.

Later in the afternoon, I’ll go in the pool for about 35 minutes, even though the pool hasn’t been cleaned since the fire broke out. Ewww! 😳 I don’t put my face in the water or touch the bottom. And yes, I’ve brought the subject up several times to my landlord via text, who just happens to be the president of the HOA. He hasn’t even bothered to answer me.

I just came up with a new mini-goal. I already have two mini-goals, one by my birthday and another by Xmas. So in January, I’d like to buy Zumba shoes and start taking Zumba classes.

I live to dance (and sing) so it’ll be perfect for me. ☺️

Tomorrow, it’s the gym!

Thanks for reading, everyone. Your encouraging comments mean a lot to me. ❤️

Workin’ It!

Hey, I’ve worked out ten days in a row! Very cool, huh?

Plus, per a weekly report generated by My Fitness Pal, I stuck to my nutritional goals by consuming an average of 1,255 calories/day of food from Oct 2 – Oct 8. Not only is that right within goal, but it’s especially gratifying considering I had worked out every single day.

My weight loss plateau is officially over!

I’ve got PT tomorrow, which is a workout for my shoulders and arms. I may swim afterwards if the pool is free from ash from the fire. If not, I’ll dance around my bedroom for cardio. 😉

Thursday, I’m hitting the gym. Friday is my last PT for my shoulder. Ever. It looks like I’m finally graduating. 😎

Anyway, it was a good workout today, although it was sandwiched in between two doctor appointments. Since I had limited time, I chose to do 40 minutes of cardio and over 20 minutes of strength training. I managed to hit everything: arms, abs, calfs and legs, and hip adductors.

But the weirdest thing happened after I left the last doctor appointment (which is only a few blocks from the gym). Now get this: after the Cypress gym workout on Sunday, I witnessed a high-speed police chase. When we left the Garden Grove gym on Monday, we were enveloped by smoke and ash. So I couldn’t help but wonder what else would happen today…

And sure enough, just as I was passing the Cypress gym location, I got caught up in traffic. I saw a police car and someone being loaded into an ambulance. Apparently, I had just missed a car crash. Sure hope the person will be OK!

But no more drama after gym. Please!
