NEXT STEP: SURGERY

So here I am.


Finally, after 9 years, exactly where I have been looking forward to standing.


APPROVED FOR SURGERY!!!!


BUT mid-pandemic weight gain may be the killer of the whole plan.


How tragic is that!?


I have gained 40 pounds since the pandemic started back in March.


The doctor told me I don't even have .3 pounds to spare between now and January 15's consult.


Problem is, since that conversation I went on vacation and ate everything!


If the doctor doesn't schedule the appointment until Feb 8th I will have a full 3 weeks.


That said I have to buckle down and get at least 7 pounds gone.


Starting tomorrow I will need to commit to a diet and workout regime and get to it.


I never thought I'd be this close and still have so much to do.


Especially after losing 20 pounds at the beginning of last year.


So here's the plan:




18:6 Intermittent Fasting Schedule:


Cardio before the window starts


Eat during a 6-hour window


Lift weights as it ends




The Food Plan:


Cut out meat


Eat breakfast every day; waffle/oatmeal/tea


Drink a gallon of water


Eat a salad


Drink vegetable broth (turmeric and ginger) or soup as a meal


Juice (get juicer asap)




Workouts:


3.1-mile walk/run (daily)


30-minute workout video (daily)


5 days a week: IG workout


Friday and Saturday at work:

75 squats, 50 crunches a day, 50 touchdown squats, 25 burpees, 2 minutes of side workouts
