Fit Check 4/24


Morning all!! Today is 12 day since my wrist surgery and it looks like my hand is back to normal. It’s sort of itchy but I guess that is because it is healing. I have an appointment with my Dr on Thursday for him to make sure is healing right and to take out the stitches.

As far as my exercising goes\, I really could not do too much due to my hand being the way it is. I did get out with my daughter though and kick the ball around which felt amazing. I’m looking forward to getting back on track when I get the stitches out.

Hi all!! Just though I’d let you know how I’m doing. I have not done much exercising this week due to my surgery. I intend to “get back on the horse” this week and continue exercising. It was good to take a few days off but I cannot continue doing so and my hand is healing so that will not stop me. So everything will get back on track this week with no issues.



Update on my surgery


Well I went in on Thursday morning to have my wrist surgery. All went well and I am here to talk about how amazing my doctor was from start to finish. I went back around 15 till 7 and had some amazing nurses that put my mind at ease. They helped me into those stockings they put on you to prevent blood clots, stuck me with my IV and explained everything that was going to happen.


After that my anesthesia doctor

anesthesiologist  came in to make sure I was overall healthy (which I am 🙂 ), and to make sure there were no issues he was not aware of. I confirmed everything was accurate.  About 30 min later, they took me to the pre-op room where they again asked me all the same questions to make sure they didn’t miss anything and confirmed I was who I said I was…which I am pretty sure I am. 9a48b8c1a473775e9dac414f082757c9--nurse-cartoon-nurse-stuffThen my doctor came in marked where he was going to make the incisions (would’ve got a pic but I couldn’t bring my phone). Talked to me a bit made sure I was calm and good to go. He’s a really great doctor knew exactly what to do. After he left, it was about another 15 mins they came and took to me to the Op room where I hopped on the table said a couple of words and I was gone to la la land.


When I woke up it was like nothing happened, but obviously it did. My right had was bandaged up but I felt absolutely felt no pain. I went back to sleep for a few minutes, when I woke back up, one of my nurses came back to check on me and make sure I was good and if I needed anything. I was then wheeled back to my recovery room where my hubby was waiting for me and nurses made sure I was comfy. After that, it was about a 1/2 hour and I went home. Overall the surgery was a lot easier and uncomplicated then I thought it was going to be.

Day one when I came home after surgery all bandaged up:



Today after removing bandage:



I would like to give my thanks to my doctor: J. Eric Stanford, my anesthesiologist, and all the amazing nurses at Athens-Limestone Hospital. They were all great toward me. All pictures are from google except for the ones of my hand (obviously) 😀

Fit Check 4/10


Morning all!! I have changed my exercise routine this past week because I felt like I was getting in a rut. I have started doing more aerobic activities as well as some light weight lifting. I probably am not going to post a fit check next week just due to the fact I am having surgery on Thursday on my wrist for carpal tunnel. We’ll see how that goes. When I can I’ll post an update until then….have a great week!!



Fit Check 4/3/18


Well this week was a hectic week…between the kids, my job, and life in general…I did not get much done this week. But I did get some exercising done. Not as much as I would have liked to but I did. Unfortunately, my gazelle broke and I have to go back to my original exercises from way back when. Might be a good thing…it might actually kick start my body to start burning again. I guess we will have to see.



Fit Check 3/27/18


G’morning all!! It is a beautiful day and I hope everyone is have a good one today!! I have had some big improvements. I got out with my daughter for 30 minutes playing soccer over the weekend without becoming winded!! I know it’s not numbers but you know something…I starting to not really care so much about those numbers. Yes I want to lose weight, yes I want my cholesterol to come down, yes I want my size to shrink…but just the fact I was able to do what I did this weekend made all that unimportant.Screenshot_2018-03-27-08-43-35[1]


Fit Check 3/20/18


Another week has went by and I am getting closer to my goal of getting healthier. I am eating better and exercising more. I am enjoying being outside with my kids. My weight is not coming down anymore yet but I know it will. I just have to keep on and I will. I am stuck between 178 and 180. It can be frustrating and discouraging but I know it will come off as long as I am persistent.
