Reel recovery with the Rangers

Recommended Posts

Challenge Wrap-up:


Goals for this challenge:


Maintain present weight at 221.  A+ final weight 215.  Lost 6 pounds, new all time (adulthood anyway) low. 

Complete first month of therapy.  A-  Hit therapy 2 twice a week, got in most of my at home sessions, but did not hit them all and missed a couple after my fall.

Wear my CPAP every day for at least four hours.  F  Total failure, wore it a couple of times but between not sleeping and the sling and pain and just did not happen.

Implement new budget get debt control plan. B  Made great progress, got Quicken caught up, framework budget in place, still work to go but its a start.


While the pain from the rotator cuff surgery and recovery has not been awful I think it has really worn me out, that and not getting great rest has not helped, but I worked thru it.  Managed to hit the treadmill almost every day, ate pretty darn well especially considering I was restless and bored with my inability to do way too many things I wanted.  I stumbled a bit but worked really hard at tracking and being mindful.  Was not sure it was possible to lose weight as I did not know what to expect recovery wise so loosing 6 pounds is huge!  Therapy is my second job and I got up and went and worked hard most days so another win.  Good challenge, moved forward, found a new home with the Rangers, found some old adventurer friends here as well, looking forward to Monday!

Solid work, my friend! Now you know where you need to focus your work on! Sleeping has always been an elusive goal for a LOT of us, so you're not alone on that.
