Weight: 150.0

There's never going to be a perfect journey here--well I remember one person who was in and out of DDs in record time--but she was not the norm. We need to face our realities, but not beat ourselves up. The better choice is to be kind to ourselves consciously.

Exercise:
Tues & Wed: Nothing
Thur: Housework

Sleep:
Tues: 7.5 hrs
Wed: 6.5 hrs
Thur: 7 hrs

Water:
Tues: 32 oz
Wed: 30ish oz
Thur: 42 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Wt Trng

BMI: 26.2 (Still Overweight) :: 24.9--143# = Normal Weight

Body Fat %:
8.12.14 :: 33.8%; 9.8.14 :: 33.9%; 11.18 :: 31.8%; 2.2.15 :: tbd
(first goal = 30%; second goal = 24%)

Good post today. It is a journey that doesn't end as long as we are on earth. Deal with realities, and be kind. I'm typing this so I remember it! Thanks! Have a great day!


liza36 on 11/21/2014:
Thanks for the reminder that it is not a perfect journey!


puddles on 11/21/2014:
Such a true statement - The reality is that we have good day and we have bad days but we keep going. Thank you for reminding us to be kind to ourselves.


Jezebel on 11/21/2014:
Good stuff. Thanks.


thinkpositive on 11/21/2014:
So true. Losing weight is hard and we're going to have good days & bad days but we have to continue and not be negative,

(Short Challenges :: Wt Trng :: Pre-Bkfst Cardio)
Weight: 150.0

I'm up .4# on my weigh-in today. Using my Omron handheld, I checked my body fat, which is 31.8% this go round. I don't think I did enough (between food choices and wt trng) to warrant that loss (-2%), but that's what it is. (It's a good "go-by" for me.)

I'll check it again in another couple of months or so.

BTW, it's absolutely gorgeous here today--warming trend in place through the weekend and perhaps some nice rain in the offing. Who could ask for anything more:-)

Exercise:
Sun: Housework
Mon: Airdyne 21 min

Sleep:
Sun: 8 hrs
Mon: 7.5 hrs

Water:
Sun: 32 oz
Mon: 34 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Wt Trng

(first goal = 30%; second goal = 24%)

Progress as of today: 39 lbs lost so far, only 7 lbs to go!

puddles on 11/18/2014:
Congrats - glad to hear your weather is nicer then ours. Way too cold here - went out and took me 30 minutes to de-ice my car. yuck. Have a great evening. You might be right on my eating habit maybe I should just leave it alone so my biggest meal is at supper it seems to have worked for me. Thank you for being honest and telling me what I needed to know.


thinkpositive on 11/18/2014:
Getting closer to your goal!


museumgirl on 11/19/2014:
Wow, that's pretty great body fat! Congrats.

biscottibody59 on 11/19/2014:
Thanks, it's progress for sure! I'd like to get to about 25% (I'd probably be firmly in the normal/healthy range for BMI), see how I feel and then go from there.

It's not just the fat on the outside, it's the visceral fat around organs that's deadly.

I certainly appreciate your sentiments:-)


Maria7 on 11/20/2014:
Hey, there! Yes, you did leave a message, which I got (thank you for it) and what happened is I tried to update my weight for October and it didn't work out and it took away the entry I'd done that you'd responded to and when I finally figured out how to get the entry back, your comment was gone from it. :-( Thanks for commenting again. I am so happy for you and how low you have gotten your weight. You are doing TERRIFIC! :-) Take care and hope you are having a blessed day. :-)

I've been trying to do a little housework every day here for awhile. I own up to some neglect, but I also bite down hard when I do bite down--haha! Unfortunately I started something last night and just kept going. It helped that I'd had a bit of caffeine earlier, though it didn't help my sleep. I own it--no problem.

I hate the cold so much--so early and intense. A lot of us are dealing with it--and it's much worse for some of you, so this will conclude my complaint. I guess though, it'll sort of prepare me for any other sh*tty, cold-*ss weather to come:-)

I hope to make a small grocery trip today. I have not been vigilant about pre-preparing anything of late, but I know it's integral to my success (and health) so I'm going to try again. Nothing ambitious, just a plan. I may not be getting quite enough calories--too much one day and not enough the next--not sustainable. Might be worthwhile for me to use Fitday for awhile--we'll see.

I counted calories using Fitday for quite a few years (at least it seems like YEARS) here after never having dieted, calorie-counted or really having paid attention to food, except to eat it before I got here (DDs).

Old habits die hard even when your head tells you you're gonna pay for that--I can't eat like a 25 y/o (or even a 35 y/o) n'more--haha! I've come close to flipping things, but really flipping it all for me (I've discovered) isn't just mind over matter, it truly requires confidence. (My confidence took many hits in the last 15 or so years.) I'm working on it:-)

I'm hoping to reach my late-late 50s in better shape overall than ever. I can't really see me with a "6" as the first numeral for my age in years. There's time to work on that one:-)

Planning is always my best defense, and worst failure if I don't do it! Good luck. I've been procrastinating on housework all day...guess I'll do it now. Maybe it will warm me.Stay warm!
