Getting back in the saddle

I just completed day 9 of my DoYouYoga online class. I have to say, I'm impressed with myself for making it this far! Usually, by day 5 or so, I start to get bored/lose interest and stop doing online classes. The whole no real accountability thing. I have a friend who has been checking in on me, so that helps.

Yesterday, I added walking (beyond walking the dog... I'm making myself use the treadmill for this walking - for now) to the workout schedule. Just 30 minutes a day at first. It's amazing how much fitness I really have lost. My walk yesterday was an 18 minute mile. Yikes! But, I hadn't really been working out a lot before the surgery & then had surgery, so it is what it is - and it'll improve!

I've got a meal plan for this week & need to stick to it. Jon decided to go out last night - but we're cooking the rest of the week. This week's PlateJoy recipes were gold, so we're looking forward to them.

Do You Yoga?

I was cleared last Monday to get back to doing *almost* anything I wanted to do. I decided to give my body another week, because well, I felt like I needed it.

Last night, I started poking around on doyouyoga, to see what beginner level workout plans they have. I decided the 28 day beginner plan would be a good one to ease back into working out. Most of the workouts are under 25 minutes (only 3 are longer), so I figured that'd be good. I did the first workout today (5 minutes of very easy practice) & I'll be interested to see how I feel tomorrow!

In addition, I recently picked up the Skinnytaste Meal Planner to go along with our renewed dedication to losing weight. I'm going to start using it this week to keep track of meals.

Post Surgery Check Up

Yesterday, I went to my post-op check up with my surgeon. Here are the basics:

1) Adenomyosis was confirmed by the pathology report.
2) Endometriosis was also found at the bottom of my uterus.
3) They found 2 polyps in my uterus.

Overall, I'm healing well & just have to wait a total of 8 weeks to have sex again. Also, I need to have yearly ultrasounds of my ovaries done to make sure nothing's going on with them. I have dissolvable stitches, so no going back to have them taken out (YAY!).

I'm definitely feeling better and moving around more. I'm not quite doing everything I was, but getting closer ever day. I went back to work yesterday. Here's to hoping that the rest of recovery goes well!
