Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes (Update 2)

I haven't updated this blog because the camera on my phone isn't cooperating.  Needless to say I am fixing that situation this afternoon.

I have another collage photo to post.  I realized that I like these monthly look backs on how I am changing and improving my life since the surgery.  Once again I have to thank the Amazing Dianne for her photography skills and taking another shot of me at the mall during our knit night.

Go Me!

This past month was a good one.  I didn't get to the gym as often as I would have liked but when I did my trainer really put me through my paces.  I lost inches everywhere and have lost a total of 68 lbs since the surgery and since September I have lost 95lbs .  I can now do 38 squats in a minute and 18 push-ups in a minute.  Wooot!  And I also completed a mile in 16 minutes and 54 seconds.

My main gym goal is to be able to run a 5K on the treadmill.  I can do it on an elliptical/cross ramp but I want to be able to run.

As far as diet, I have been pleased with what I can eat.  While chicken and zucchini are not my friends I am happy that I can consume other nutritious foods.  I tried salad and while I don't eat a lot of it, the crunch of fresh vegetables is awesome.  I was able to eat steak as long as I cut it up into small bites.  I still rely on a lot of fish to supplement my diet but thankfully I am starting to like it.

Overall, I am really happy.  That is not something that I say lightly I am really pleased with what's happening and can't wait to see what next month brings.
