    Hi there! I am10 days Post-Op. I lost 15 lbs. on the 2 week pre-op diet...had my surgery follow-up this past Tuesday, had only lost 4 lbs. but since I haven't been nauseated or vomiting, and calorie intake so low & not much activity, the doc said I was right where I should be, he was happy! I can add some meat to my diet now, but I am not a fan of blenderized meat, doc said that is fine and most do the 2 week Full Liquid after surgery for the same reason. As long as I am getting 70+ grams of protein a day he is fine. I am not hungry....I am so surprised but happy too! Still doesn't want me to lift more than 5 lbs. for another week or so to avoid a hernia developing. I can walk just no weights just yet. Thanks for the well wishes, hope you are doing well and having a great week!

    Thank you! Me too. A recovery with few, or no complications would be great! Fingers crossed!

    Let me know how the new dance moves are on the new workout video? It was definitely hard to keep up, I was still on the left when they were on the right and returning to the left lol! Thank goodness it is only a 35 min workout! and the last 10 minutes are floor exercises so that was a relief.

Morning

by Donna Rudewick on 08-26-2017 at 09:51 AM
Good morning sleevers!! I haven't posted since day 3 of fitcamp so I figured I'd better. Days 4-5 we stepped up the work outs a bit. Went from a 200 meter run to 800. 800 meters on the row machine. All to prepare us for day 6. Filthy 50! This work out consisted of: 50 box jumps
50 jumping pull-ups
50 kettle-ball swings

Boot camp day 3

by Donna Rudewick on 08-18-2017 at 12:26 PM
Day 3 done! Now I have the weekend off before I start again. I think I need to clarify some points about me and crossfit boot camp. My exercises are scaled or modified due to my age and ability. Push-ups for me are done with my knees on the ground. Burpees are done against the wall and sit ups are done with a ball behind my back. Now with all that said I can say this: I did 3 sit ups without the ball today!! My goal was to be able to do 1 sit up before the end of a month. I did 3 in a week.

Boot camp day 2

by Donna Rudewick on 08-17-2017 at 08:19 AM
Well day 2 went pretty good!! Not as sore today as I was after day 1. Although I did wake up around 2am Wednesday morning with my muscles screaming in pain when I attempted to roll over in my sleep. When they tell you that delayed onset muscle soreness hits in 24-48 hours after an intense workout they aren't kidding!! I had to grab the mattress and pull myself over. I just knew there was no way I was making it to class that day. But I did..
I hobbled into that gym and gave my instructor

Crossfit Bootcamp

by Donna Rudewick on 08-14-2017 at 11:48 AM
Well I got the first day of crossfit boot camp done and in the books. It was awesome and the most difficult and painful thing I have ever done. We started off with warm ups which was easy. I though hmmm, this ain't so bad. Then they give us the run down on the work out: 10 strict push-ups, 15 sit-ups, 20 squats with a 9lb kettle ball, 200 meter run. Do this as many times as you can for 60 min. I did 3 reps and thought I was gonna die!!
Just when I thought we were done at the end of

Hiya

by Donna Rudewick on 08-02-2017 at 09:34 AM
Hi guys!! Long time no see!! I hit my 1 year mark on July 20 of this year. I didn't reach my goal of 135 but I'm happy where I'm at. I'm currently 150 and wear a size 9 and some 8's. Just this morning I signed up for a crossfit boot camp that starts august 14. As I was watching some of the things they were doing I almost backed out! Lol! I thought how can someone knocking on the door of 50 pretty hard keep up!?! But then I saw this gentleman who was giving it his all (granted much younger)
