Feels so good to invert again! Trying to eliminate the kick-up by tucking my knees (thanks @adellbridges for the tip!). Always with the assist is my sweet lover Akira 🐶. Thank goodness for high-waisted underwear! 🙏 They help me pretend I have abs 💪😂 #inversion #inversionpractice #forearmstand #forearmstandpractice #hiparthroscopyrecover #labralreconstruction #labralreconstructionrecovery #tenweekspostop #10weekspostop #lifeisbetterupsidedown #upsidedownkisses

Button out and an upgrade to a small splint at night to try and straighten my finger more... At least it matches my #garmin ?? 🤣🤣

Today is exactly 10 weeks since my #abdominalhysterectomy and my workouts are really feeling great! Today's #legday included sets of 10 deadlifts with the Wenning belt squat, and I was super pleased to have my full range of motion back with little to no pelvic discomfort! Grateful to @realmattwenning and my @ludus_magnus_gym family for helping me through my recovery 💪 #gaintolose #morenotless #strengthjourney #weightlossjourney #10weekspostop #womenshealth #deadlifts #beltsquat #recovery #bitbybit #gettingitback #wenningstrength #realmattwenning

I had to go to Wollongong Hospital Physio department yesterday for my knee. They said for every kilo when you take a step is 4 kg of pressure on your knee. 17 kg lost equals 68kg of pressure not on my knee anymore, and boy I can feel the difference.

 #trainingssteuerung

Gestern war schon gut und heute ging es mir noch besser! Wenn ich mich heute sehe und die letzten Tage betrachte, komme ich wieder zu dem Schluss, dass dieses Auf und Ab nicht allein durch meine Hände beeinflusst wird. Sicherlich tragen sie einen Teil dazu bei. Sie sind nunmal mehrfach gebrochen gewesen und die Brüche müssen noch etwas länger heilen, aber ein großer Teil liegt auch einfach an den Hormonen. Meine Vollgasphase fängt an und ich merke ganz deutlich, wie meine Energie steigt und das dumpfe Gefühl der letzten Tage sich endlich wieder verabschiedet! 😀 Ich freu mich auf die nächsten Tage und werde mich weiter mit dem Thema der Trainingssteuerung nach dem weibl. Zyklus auseinandersetzen. Ich bin der Meinung, dass da für uns Frauen ein großer Schlüssel zum Erfolg liegt! 
Demnach habe ich heute den Tag mit ein paar Intervallen auf der Rolle begonnen und mit einem entspannten Lauf am Abend beendet. #laufliebe 😍
Das war heute Abend übrigens mein erster Lauf im Dunkeln und mein erster Lauf mit Schnee. Also, seit dem Unfall. 😜 Da es etwas glatt war, musste ich sehr vorsichtig laufen. Das war aber genau passend, so konnte ich wenigstens langsam laufen. 😏
Ach... schon lange nicht mehr dran gedacht. Heute ist die Operation 10 Wochen her #10weekspostop! Das ist bestimmt ein gutes Zeichen - ich denke nicht mehr in X-Wochen nach dem Unfall, sondern so langsam mehr in X-Wochen bis zum #ironmanhamburg2019 😁. #running #instarunners #twobrokenwrists #picfromlastyear #me #motivation #nevergiveup #findyourway #training #irongirl #justdoit #dowhatyoulove #happy #comebackstronger #trainhard #focus #unaufhaltbar #dreambig #fitfam

10 weeks 6 days PP
C section recovery •
For those of you that are new to my page, I was born with a clipped him, and as a result, had a pin put into my hip when I was 12. I now walk with a permanent limp, and will eventually need a new hip because of this deformity. •
Gaining weight was challenging mentally for me, because I had lost SO much weight l before becoming pregnant, 80 lbs to be exact! But I knew that my body was changing for the better, and am so beyond grateful I was able to carry such a beautiful baby girl! •
Because of high blood pressure issues, I was unable and not allowed to workout after 25 weeks of being pregnant, which truly hindered my healthy pregnancy. As a result, I decided to eat what I wanted towards the end of my pregnancy, and am now ready to PUSH and hop back on track! •

We have officially finished week 1 of our 6 week program, and I’m starting to feel REALLY sore, and REALLY strong all at the same time! 
This journey is not going to be a fast or easy one, but I know it will be worth it! 
Plus the fact that it is only 20 minutes a day truly helps with the 1,000 of other things that I need to get done during the day 😂

Here’s to week two of my transformation to be a strong mother, wife, and person!

Sooo I’ve not been able to get anywhere near butterfly pull ups since June last year... Today was a good day as glimpses of them started to appear again! 🦋🖤 #roadtorecovery #10weekspostop #fuckyoucancer

I tried... 10 weeks was enough!!! 4.5 miles this morning with intervals. My average interval pace was 11 but my running pace was 9.35 with a stretch of 6.58!! What?!! A sub 7 min mile pace? I feel like this year I will see sub 9 min miles!!! Back in the gym tomorrow and Thursday is hill sprints! I'm starting to line up some of my races for the year. 
Edited to add: I strapped my boobs down with 2 high impact sports bras and ran with my new abdominal binder. Nothing bounced! All was good!

Yesterday, Henley’s feeding therapist said she’s ready for the big girl high chair. We’re all very proud of how far she’s come with her feeding. It’s a long slow process, but she’s moving in the right direction 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I’ve really been enjoying my yoga practices lately. I’ve always enjoyed yoga, but there’s something really awesome about a self-practice where you move exactly the way your body is telling you to. I have slowly been increasing the intensity of my workouts by adding on more stabilizing work for my abdominals, holding poses longer, doing more reps, etc. I’m not putting any pressure on myself to stick to a routine, I just do whatever my body feels like that day - sometimes that’s yoga, sometimes Pilates, or in the case on Sunday it was an hour-plus walk on the beach with Harlow 🐕. The point is to MOVE and movement is supposed to be fun! #findwhatyoulove #stayactive #recovery #listentoyourbody #yoga #10weekspostop #kidneytransplant #transplantlife #kidneypatient

Having my abdominal muscles pulled back together brought in my waistline by 5 inches and I really notice it in these pics. But this before and after really makes me miss my back and shoulder muscles although I will get them back in no time. 
But the verdict is in... #lululemon definitely does a booty good. Man, I want a lulu butt without the lulus. .

Ten weeks post op!!! And finally allowed to ride my bike around... So stoked.😉😁😜 Still need to do a lot of rehab and muscle building before I can return to trail riding.... And loads more before I can get back to Downhill. 💪😉 So far so good!

Thanks to all the family and friends who have been supporting me through my recovery.

OMFG I cannot tell you how happy this made me!
.
I have to admit I was so terrified - that the knee wouldn't cope at the top of the rotation, that it might cause me to fall off, that I might fail..but I felt it was a fear I had to face if I was ever going to get back on a bike again. So we just used the driveway and on the first run hubby ran along side me just in case.
.
I had been on my spin bike for 30 mins and my TT bike on the trainer for 10 mins so I knew the knee was loosened up. Unsure if I could ride it without a stationary bike warm up just yet but man, I could cry I'm so happy!
.
My mountain-bike isn't one I ride much, it's a cheap bike with flat non cleat pedals, so I think it's a great place for me to start.
.
Oh... and did I mention.. ROM measured at 118 degrees at the end of all that 👏🏻

I almost didn't. A whole heap of external non knee factors today derailed my motivation and I almost didn't get on that bike. Then I remembered a quote I posted a while back:
.
..'Successful people do what needs to be done, whether they feel like it or not'...
.
So I put my big girl panties on and got on the flipping bike.
.
I started off pretty stiff (I usually do this in the morning, not the evening, not sure if that's a factor or not 🤔) but, as usual, it only took a song or so to loosen. I continued to ride for another 20 mins to one of my own spin play lists, adding some resistance and sprint intervals here and there to match the music.
.
Then I slid the seat forward a bit... rode for a while.. then a bit more. Then I lowered the seat one notch (making it LOWER than I usually ride it). Then rode for a bit.
.
Then I got off and went to try the TT bike on the trainer. I concluded that although I still need to slide that spin bike seat even further forward still, this new plan worked better and I could pedal it for a whole song straight away when I got on. MASSIVE contrast to the last effort!
.
So this has become my new bike transition plan.
.
This knee WILL do what I damn well want it to! 💪🏻👊🏻👏🏻

I am so FREAKING excited it's beyond words! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
.
Today after my 45 min spin bike on the porch session, the knee was feeling pretty good, so I decided to try the time trial bike on the indoor trainer (AGAIN!) I have tried this quite a number of times and have never been able to get my legs to go round. It's now become a small personal fear - (that I might never be able to) as well as a mini mission of mine.
.
Here we go again... but this time it WORKED!!! I can pedal it! I'm so stoked I simply don't have words!
.
Now, I'm not quite ready to cycle off down the street yet, because I need to work out how best to get on/ off and clip in/ out but OMG this is a giant step in the right direction!! (10 weeks and 1 day post #RTKR)
.
🎉Happy New Year! 🎉

The race over Bluff Hill Part 2: which knees won?
.
We had some fun with this before my op (the first video can be found on my YouTube channel) and decided to have a re-run, this time asking which KNEES won?
.
The deal this time was Mark (hubby) was to run up and over Bluff hill and down the other side to meet me who would walk from the same starting point, but along the coast path to the lookout where Marks path comes down to join the coast path.
.
Who won? Pitch your bets below then watch to find out! Bear in mind.. the turn around point for me is a 50 min relatively flat coastal walk from our starting point, but he is running up and over an extinct volcano..

We measure ROM each week because I like actual stats to keep me on track.
.
2 weeks ago was my last physio (before the clinic shut for Xmas) and I was measured at 100 degrees. It as been that for 2 weeks.
.
Since I borrowed the spin bike and started cycling every day - I have gained another 15 degrees in the last 2 weeks. Usual rate of progress is 5 degrees a week, then less than that when you get past 90.
.
So, although I'm still a tiny bit frustrated that my Time Trial bike is still gathering dust, I can see clear progress and I'm determined to be back on it at some stage soon. (Once I also figure out how I'm going to get on and off it and clip in / out fast enough before I fall over!)

We measure ROM each week because I like actual stats to keep me on track. . 2 weeks ago was my last physio (before the clinic shut for Xmas) and I was measured at 100 degrees. It as been that for 2 weeks. . Since I borrowed the spin bike and started cycling every day - I have gained another 15 degrees in the last 2 weeks. Usual rate of progress is 5 degrees a week, then less than that when you get past 90. .

SHEDDING!?!?! 😢🥺😳😳 So I’ve heard about this dreaded topic since pre-op and was fearing it my ENTIRE time! And here it begins... 😵To be fair- this amount came after not detangling my hair for a full month! 😱😱😱 i take liquid biotin & hair/skin/nail pills every SINGLE day so my hair has gotten fuller, thicker and harder to manage. Smh. Hence all of this breakage along w/ VSG shedding. My edges are looking a little thin but the rest of my hair is pretty full. Even with this large amount missing, it isn’t too evident. I hope 🤞🏾 it stays this way... To all my BARIATRIC FRIENDS: Any tips on reducing hair loss/shedding? How do YOU maintain your hair POST-OP?? #10weeksout • •

- REAL LIFE POST- 
I’m sick of people trolling me, inboxing me shit, telling me I cheated my way through etc. I’m actually so done with it!

So here’s some facts! - Yes. I had WEIGHTLOSS SURGERY! I had a Gastric Sleeve on October 17th this year. - No it’s not cheating. I have to work just as hard for my results as anyone else. I lost half my stomach not my brain! - If you knew how much planning, effort, and thought went into everything I eat, drink or do everyday you wouldn’t think it was easy. - Yes I still eat! I’m not an alien! - I workout, I workout hard! Currently I workout with my local F45, 6 days a week, I am also in the gym 3x a week with a PT, I also hit the gym up whenever I feel like it. - Supplements are a big part of my life now due to the little amount of food I can consume, I need to bridge the gap so my body can adjust to the way things are now. - I am still working. I never quit my job. I would never do that. My boss was fully aware of what I was doing and supported me the whole way. The rest of my team were also very supportive. - I was 138.8 kilos. I’m only 164cm tall. - My surgery saved my life. In just the 12 weeks I’ve already shed half my obesity related co morbidities. I couldn’t have ever imagined that in a million years. - I have since stopped all my prescription medications for pain as I no longer need them. - My bowel conditions are finally under control for the first time since diagnosis.

Im an open book about the journey and the surgery and the fact I’ve done it. 
I don’t have any regrets. 
I’m in no way ashamed that I had surgery, nor will I be made feel insignificant because of it. 
My VSG saved my life. My surgeon saved my life. I am forever grateful for that. 
If you don’t like that, feel free to unfriend, unfollow etc I really don’t mind! I have all the support I need, I don’t need any negativity.

10 weeks and 1 day post op 💜 •

Who thought recovering would be this much fun? I'm going to the gym 3 times a week, PT 2 times a week. I'm able to bycicle as much as I want without getting pain and walking is going better every day. AND IM ABLE TO WALK THE STAIRS LIKE A NORMAL PERSON wooooohooooo 🎡🎡🎡🎡party. 
It feels like I'm fully recovered and i knoooooow i have a long way to go, but there's nothing holding me back ( #shawnmendes) and I'm able to move freely 💙 and do whatever I want #happygirl. I feel extremely lucky that everything is going so smooth, nobody expected it to go this quick. My PT said that the process would be much times slower if I wasn't this stubborn and determined 😇 • 
I still wear my brace when I'm going out for a whole day, just to be sure. It provides stability and it just feels safer 😇 •

10 weeks post-op. Let’s talk about hair loss. It is a for real thing. I’ve noticed more and more hair in my brush and in the shower. I’ve looked and this Hair Skin and Nails is the best I’ve found with the highest biotin 5,000mcg. I’m starting it this morning.

Lots of my friends and colleagues at work ask me questions about my weight loss. Why this? What that? How comes....? How does?
One of the questions I get is how do you manage hunger, thinking I must still get the same hunger feelings as before.
This diagram explains why after having the sleeve you don’t feel as hungry as before.

10 weeks ago today I woke up in my hospital bed and needed help to stand up. Today I stayed a 10 minute mile. Definitely still have a long way to get back to where I was but it feels good to finally get to start! #10weekspostop #ileocecalresection #runningpostop

I walk with a limp like an old school pimp 😂🙈 10 weeks post and starting to take a few steps without crutches around the house! It feels pretty weird but hoping the more I do it the less it will hurt and the limp will lessen! Excuse the hair- when you don’t see anyone all day it’s easy to leave it #walking #limping #recovery #hipdysplasia #periacetabularosteotomy #paosurgery #10weekspostop
