So I weigh 146 lbs. (What's it to ya??) That means I have 16 pounds to lose. :-P No doubt having the hand surgery will take it down somewhat, but I'm hoping to lose most of it by making intelligent lifestyle decisions.
I'd been procrastinating on the exercise goal because of the upcoming surgery, but then I had to ask myself why, exactly. No doubt the surgery will slow me down for a bit, but that doesn't mean I have to put off exercising for over a month, now, does it?
This morning I thought I would capitalize on already having had a good hike on Sunday. So I went down and did some S.H.I.I.T. on the treadmill. (If you don't know what S.H.I.I.T. is, be sure to click the link.)
I did sort of a lame interval thing, I'm only walking a mile at a time to start off with, and I just bumped it up to 4mph for a couple of minutes a couple of times. Felt good, though. I sure hope my knees cooperate. It seems like every time I start exercising again some body part gives out. My plan is to go back to doing the physical therapy exercises for my various weak links along with the general fitness things.
By the by, speaking of therapy exercises, I made myself a mini-goal toward the major goal 57 (get right hand back into shape). I plan to hit the hand exercises hard, hoping that the tendon will in fact break loose from the scar tissue before the surgery on September 23rd. Right now I can't bend my pinkie more than a little bit. I slacked off my hand therapy there for a bit, but now I think I should rev that back up.
And no, I'm not counting this picture toward the 10 pictures. The other nine have to be of other subjects, I decided.
