4 Weeks Post Surgery-

Hi you all πŸ™‚ Happy Hump-day πŸ‘
I can’t believe that today marks four weeks since my surgery.
Highlights to mark the date are:
● wearing something other than a sports bra
● added resistance to my lower body workouts
● light strolls have transitioned to power walks
● 5 LB dumbbell Bicep Curls πŸ’ͺ

I started my morning with my usual cup of coffee before mom and I set out on the town to run around a bit. It was rainy out and felt a bit like fall, so once in town, we decided another cup of coffee would be good β˜•οΈπŸ˜β˜•οΈ We took it to our favorite coffee house,Β the Spot.Β I had a sugar-free caramel latte made with almond milk and mom had a turtle freeze 🐒

 

We got our errands ran and then I spent a good part of the afternoon working on schoolwork πŸ“š After, I got in a lower body workout with a light resistance band. My glutes were still super sore from Mondays workout, but a few reps in and the blood flow helped. It was a quick 30 minute workout consisting of:
● air squats
● stationary lunges
● banded good-mornings
● banded abductor swings
● banded adductor swings

 

I feel like I have lost almost all mass in my lower body, but i just keep reminding myself that in two more weeks I can incorporate light squats and weighted lunges and its all uphill from there πŸ’ͺ

My lunches have looked almost identical for three days now. I am on a lettuce wrap kick right now. Lettuce, deli chicken, mustard, light cheese and cashews with even more greens on the side- kale chips

 

And of course everyday requires a protein bowl- today it was ✌️

 

I was bummed this afternoon because I just knew evening cardio with the girls was a no-go due to the rain, but there was a window in the late evening that we were able to get it in, Yay!! ⛅️ Day was made 😬

Today was a good day πŸ™ Life is good.
