    Git 'er done in '21 !!!
    Had my first PT visit pre-knee replacements. I knew my knees weren't good but was a bit surprised that my flexion/extension numbers were not better. However, I am back on track! I am going to commit to PT daily (appts 3x a week for 4 weeks), increase my strength so I can recover well from surgery and LOSE some POUNDS! Therapist said using a cane would assist my gait and reduce backpain - - that is NOT the me I want to be. I will do whatever is needed to make these 4-6 very successful. I am 67 so also have Silver Sneakers - I can go exercise at the same place where I have therapy. No excuses - I'm all out of 'em.

    New day (almost), new attitude. It's a decision only I can make and a task only I can complete.

    My knee saga. In the past 10 months I have been caregiver to 2 people who had knee replacements. I spent a month, post surgery, with each. I went to pre-surgery appts with both. I organized exercise checklists for both. I even started doing the recommended exercises. I have all the tools - the pedaler, the roll pillow, etc. I have the knowledge and the background to do what is needed - - just lacking the 'motivation' until today.

    I want to complete both knees this year because 1) it was my new year's goal, 2) my joints are bone on bone, 3) I have bone spurs in both knees as well as behind my knee cap. My x-rays are UGLY (I'm a retired xray tech :).
    My work career was filled with heavy lifting and pushing heavy portable xray machines (not like today's technology).
    Time, life, and weight took a toll on my knees.

    I have been encouraging others in the journey and now I'm at the starting gate! Anyone in the same boat - join me!

    No pain, no gain.
    No time like the present.
    In a month, I can have a month of progress or a month of excuses!
    Git 'er done in '21.

    Keep me accountable!

    Could have been worse. On Monday I was up 2.5 due to the Father’s Day weekend sodium fest. It’s been a tough training week and I’m hoping I’m holding a bit of fluid due to that too. Gotta buckle down and do some serious meal prep this week!

    PW 137.6 2 weeks ago, skipped last week
    CW 138.0

    I am good with that, I hit 142 last weekend, this week refocused. Again I am really trying to maintain between 135 and 140. But closer to 133-138 would be ideal.

    good morning/afternoon

    PW: 281
    CW: 281.9

    Im okay with that small gain. This week was a productive week for me. This week I drank a gallon of water or a little more each day. (Other than that being one of my goals, it has been hot.) Did not track and Im okay with that. This week for lunch I made progress. Instead of fries, I got steamed veggies. (When I ordered lunch yesterday that is.) I brought my lunch and snack to work almost every day this week.

    One thing I did notice is I am an afternoon snacker. Snack around 3 pm. One day I brought strawberry greek yogurt to have instead of having some kind of junk food. Don't think my body liked that. Instead of eating junk after the yogurt, I drank water.

    Exercise: Went to the gym. All the machines were being used so I was stuck with cardio. It wasn't working out. Looking for my Shaun T T25 videos. That program is fun and challenging! I love his book and podcast too.

    Have a good day everyone!!!!
