Good morning, Fatsecret!

My legs are still mush after the 4x1 hours of biking earlier this week. I tried to get back on it yesterday, and again today, but to no avail. I manage about a minute, and there is simply no energy.

I will try again tomorrow, after giving them a little more rest.

It's not like I go without ANY exercise anyways.

Yesterday, Wife and I went on a nice walk instead, and I am generally active around the house. My body feels amazingly better having lost now 5 kgs (11 lbs) since last Saturday. It's amazing how much fluid can be stored in our bodies. Obviously I have not dropped 5 kilos of fat. :) My calculations say that I have burned about 7-8000 calories more than I have consumed on those last five days, so it should according to general knowledge be about a kilo of fat and five kilog of "other" that I have dropped. This is fine too, I have plenty of fluid that I need to get rid of. I see it and feel it in and around my body. I am actually not sure how much fat I need to drop. Still, the weight is coming off, I feel better, I look better and my clothes feel better on me again. It's all good.

I can tell that I am getting rid of fluid on my belly. The skin is still reasonably loose after surgery - they can only tighten it up to a certain point, as I need to be able to stretch out completely, and this leaves a little "sack" of a belly still if I have bad posture, which I often do. I think it's a leftover thing from my overweight, and it's something I try to be aware of. I try to straighten my back, but my belly button to my spine and use my abs actively.

I've gotten some good starter exercises (thanks, Sarah!), that's gonna get me going on this. I have things I can user for working out my core. Now that I have gotten permission from the doctors to do exercises, I think I need to get into this more than into the bicycling. It works all the muscle groups instead of simply burning calories.

I have before used the "Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition" workout DVD. I like it. It's reasonably low impact, which is probably not nearly as efficient as the infamous P90 and others, but on the other hand I can do them day after day. At least I used to. I am curious to see if I can handle the 30 minutes first time on medium level, or if I need to go back to beginner class. :) Nothing wrong with that though. Better than nothing.

I hope the weather will be reasonable today. Wife announced yesterday, that she'd like to try out her bike (finally) and asked if we could go for a ride. Please cross your fingers and hope for sun and no wind!

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Another pound lost! I can't believe it's coming of THIS fast!
- Morning coffee!
- Vacation!

Happy Thursday! Life is good!

EDIT:
30 minutes of workout done! I'm amazed that I pulled through the level two workout. It was rough, being the first actual workout I've done after surgery, but I did it. My arms are now ALSO mush, but mentally I feel awesome. Wife and I are off for a bike ride. Let's go! Life IS good!
END OF EDIT.

EDIT 2:
Wife and I are back. To be honest, I expected a very short ride, as Wife is NOT used to biking at all. It turned out that by the time we were home, with a midway break for coffee and water and a little shopping, we hade gone 7.5 kilometers - that's almost 5 miles! How about that. I am so proud of her to pushing through like that, with a clear and positive comments afterwards: "Let's do this again tomorrow, if the weather is okay". Thanks, babe!
Life is good indeed.

love this entry... good news all around! And along with your big ball, i think you should invest in some bands- the ones with handles. Many amazing home low impact muscle building work outs you can do. keep stepping it up buddy, there is no limit to what you can do - and clearly the extra effort is paying off 10 fold. Im proud of you!
