    Much better this week! Posting a 3.8 lbs. loss but actual "real" loss is 1.4 lbs. as my previous weigh-in was up 2.4 lbs. from the prior week. Super happy to be in the 170's....now just need to focus on getting to the 160's.

    That’s a great looking day! I am trying to incorporate some yoga stretches into my day. Did you learn them from going to yoga class?

    /quote]

    I do stretches from a book called "Hit Reset: Revolutionary Yoga for Athletes" by Erin Taylor. Each chapter focuses on a different body part or muscle group, giving a few pre-workout stretches and then a few more to do after your workout. I found it a few years ago when recovering from a running related hip injury - this book saved my running! I do the hamstrings and hip stretches from the book religiously before and after runs. Only takes about 5 minutes before & 5 minutes after my workout. Makes such a difference!

    Thanks for the information.

    Hey Team. So as you may have noticed (or not) I have not been posting any workouts. Today I was in hospital for an outpatient surgery to repair some of my scars and fix my right breast after my reduction. They’ve had to Lipo my thighs and used some of that to fill in my right breast which was slightly smaller than the other. I’m not complaining. Lipo away doc. But as it always happens, I didn’t come out great from the anesthesia. Been having lots of vertigo and on top of that one of my scars is leaking quite a bit of blood so they are keeping an eye on it. Soooooo. I’m staying overnight.

    You definitely get a pass until you heal on workouts. Here’s to a speedy recovery.

    Welcome back 888angie888.

    Good for you moving in spite of not feeling well. Hope you feel better tomorrow. I think you said you live in California, does it cool off much in the fall/winter where you live?

    First of all, thank you for all you do as a nurse. Happy early birthday! Do you have to quarantine? We have really screwy rules on quarantine. There is a flow chart you have to flow. Hope you don’t get that nasty virus.

    PW 200.8

    ✅ Steps 5k daily
    Zone minutes 508/650
    ✅ Stay within calories
    ✅ Track food accurately


    My weight has been a roller coaster this week. The good news is I ended up with a loss and I am in ONDERLAND. Those of you that have been around for awhile know that my weight hits a weight and fluctuates there for a few weeks. I did see onderland before vacation but the two weeks away didn’t give me a chance to get settled in the 190’s.

    Kids came over last night so today I am only going for a quick swim. I still need a 142 zone minutes and it’s very unlikely I will hit it but I feel I put in a great effort this week.

    Happy FriYAY!

    Congrats for hitting onederland ... That is amazing ...so proud of you :)

    @lindamtuck2018 congrats on onederland. Hope it sticks around longer.
    Summer and early fall are the hot times here, normally. The weather isn't normal anymore so it can be very hot all year. It can get into the 60s in the winter.
