    Breakfast- Orange and Yellow. One Banana and one orange.
    I am not sure what i would like for lunch or dinner yet...

    I burned TONS of calories at physical therapy today!!
    Rode the bike for 1.5 miles and did an hour of other random exercise and stretches. I feel much better today then i have been the last couple of days.

    Hey Mardee that's great about all the exercise. I'm confused because in a recent post you wrote that due to your hip condition you aren't supposed to do any exercising right now?

    mardee replied to justmejust's response:
    Laura,

    For the most part, yes.

    The only time i am allowed to do physical activity is when in the presents of a doctor. Even then, absolutely NO impact exercise.

    At this point they are just trying to get me ready for surgery. My doctor said that the stronger my hip is going into the surgery, the faster i will recover.

    So i rode the bike for 1.5 miles and then after that it was all lying on my back exercises such as leg lifts and things like that. No running or jumping jacks yet

    Hi Mardee. It sounds like you are taking care of yourself! It's good you are able to exercise under your doctor's care and that you are moving.
