I have been working my ass off. Literally. I've been doing at least an hour on the treadmill for 6 days a week, for the last 3 weeks. 1 hour is usually about 700 calories on the treadmill for me. My legs are tired. Really tired. I've been doing Body Pump a couple of times a week after the treadmill. I end up with another 400-500 calories from that. So I've been burning between 600-1000 calories a day.
I've been watching what I eat and when I eat. I tried to make the best out of having a motorcycle meeting a a rib place by having vinegar based coleslaw and 1/3 pound pulled chicken. Instead of eating crunchy peanut butter pretzels that Pete eats, I've been eating 1 1/2 cups of fruit (berries, grapes, pineapple). I made Pete a cake yesterday and never tried the batter or the cake. (CAKE IS MY THING!) Last night I made grilled mahi mahi with a grilled pineapple/mango salsa with crunchy peppers. I added a small portion of rice and cuban beans.
I've been drinking at least 100 ounces of water. Usually about 40 during my workouts and about 60-85 during the rest of the day.
I've been trying to get used to the CPAP. I have 2 different masks, but still only get about 2-3 hours a sleep a night with it on before it wakes me up and I can't get back to sleep.
Today I go in for my final education session with the bariatric center. Then I see the doctor again to see if I can schedule surgery. My hope is that I'm still at the 224 mark and I can schedule surgery in the next couple of weeks. But I'm so freaking nervous.
