I had Vertical Sleeve Gastric Surgery in October 2012, and this is my journey to push the fat girl aside and start living life without fear of lawn chairs,
the middle seat, clothing shops and high heels. Among other things.

Tonight is going to be back onto the bike - at least 30 min, however it will be ... less exciting tonight, as the cable box crapped out last night. So we will have to watch netflix or hulu... I'm sure that I'll survive! ha!

  1. What's a push press?

    Good job on the work outs! I have really surprised myself realizing that I LIKE lifting weights and getting the results I can see.

    1. A push press is a bar that you have in a clean resting position, underhand grip elbows out, bar resting alone your collar bones.

      Might be better to YouTube it!

      You do a little dip with the legs and on the up push the bar up over your head.

      It's a lot of fun!!!!! I do love weights, it's just keeping up the habit of doing it regular like.

    1. Swimming is a great workout. Swimmers have axing bodies. Lots of resistance from the water!!!
