Ignore the weight again this week--it's up. Not much else. Need to exercise, as usual.

Sleep: 8 hrs

Water: 55 oz

Activity Plan: Yard Work

Progress as of today: 44.8 lbs lost so far, only 13.4 lbs to go!

Maria7 on 04/15/2015:
Bet your yards look good. Hope you have a good day today. :-)


puddles on 04/15/2015:
Have a great day.


thinnside40 on 04/15/2015:
I need to exercise too! Been slacking more than should. Keeping active, yet not purposeful really getting in there each day.... Hope the remainder of the week we can both do more :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/18/2015:
sleep is def not underrated....If there's one thing I want to get better with in the next 12 months, it's to improve upon my sleep during the week. It's amazing how much more energy I have when I am able to sleep. And how much happier I am, as well.

Anyone that says sleep is underrated hasn't felt true exhaustion...I don't think :)

biscottibody59 on 04/19/2015:
I understand so much about sleep and its connections to many ills (and other things) just since my dx/tx with sleep apnea a few years ago.

For me restorative sleep is absolutely a non-negotiable in my life. IOW you can think you're sleeping, but you're not getting the right kind of sleep to heal your body.


mcwoo40 on 04/20/2015:
Just passing to say hello,have a good week :-)

Thur: Nothing
Fri: Short Walk
Sat: Nothing

Was glad to get the mowing knocked out--was supposed to rain BIGTIME that night. It didn't, but it did sprinkle a bit while I was mowing. We're still waiting for a semi-deluge--and it's needed!

Sleep: 7.5 hrs

Water: 50 oz

Activity Plan: Yard Work

puddles on 04/12/2015:
Must be nice to be doing some stuff outside in the yard. Have a great week. I wish I was doing as good with water as you are.


thinnside40 on 04/13/2015:
Went out to get some stuff one in the yard and awful wind gusts kicked up. Colder temps for a few days then suppose to warm up again.... Hope your week is off to a good start!


Maria7 on 04/14/2015:
I see you are still busy with the outside...something I need to get back to doing, too. :-)

For my activity:
Thurs: Mowing 1 hr; Gathering tree limbs 15 min
Fri-Mon: Nothing Much

Ignore the weight again this week--it's down.

I checked my body fat because I thought some things had changed and apparently they did--I increased lean mass. The body is recovering progressively. I've learned (mostly) not to be wigged out because it doesn't help:-)

As for the sleep, I had two nights that were quite short, so going to bed early last night definitely helped.

Sleep: 9 hrs

Water: 45 oz

Activity Plan: Yard Work

Progress as of today: 46.2 lbs lost so far, only 12 lbs to go!

mcwoo40 on 04/08/2015:
Hi,hope your fighting fit ;-)

biscottibody59 on 04/12/2015:
Not quite--sounds like a great goal though:-)


puddles on 04/08/2015:
good to hear from you. Getting some yard work done I see. Have a good evening.


Umpqua on 04/08/2015:
I'm envious of your yard work, hopefully our weather will be warm enough for that after our trip. Thanks for the good vacation wishes and take care!


Maria7 on 04/09/2015:
I see that you're still doing the yard work, too. Nice to be outdoors, isn't it? :-D Have a nice day.


museumgirl on 04/09/2015:
Glad you are recovering and building muscle. Sounds good! I've done some yard work too and it feels good to be outside again.

Have a good day. Yardwork is a workout! I'm avoiding mine until it is drier outside.


grannyannie on 04/03/2015:
Have a lovely weekend!

I see you've been working out in your yards, too...quite a job, isn't it? :-D Hope you have a good day.

For my activity: Not Much

I'm getting by here at the end of the week, but the week hasn't gone the way I'd like. I've had long phone calls for the last couple of days. I need to just let that habit go for the time being. When it rains, it pours:-)

I'll probably not talk to someone for more than 15-20 min now for the next month. I hope it goes that way!

Sounds like a good plan!


Umpqua on 03/27/2015:
My parents and a good friend are long distance so sometimes those long phone calls are inevitable. Good for you for setting a limit, I know that's not easy :)


thinnside40 on 03/27/2015:
I find myself "short" w/ people anymore on the phone, now I'm kinda settled into a routine. Almost makes me grumpy when someone calls when I'm doing something. No their fault, as they have no clue... I used to be the talker!!! Have a great Friday.

Current BMI: 24.4 (23.5 = 135#)


For my activity: Phone Call 2.5ish hours

The weight from today's weigh-in doesn't mean much. I can tell that I'm slowly "filling out" once again. To explain how my body changed over time, my bra size (to use an odd analogy) went from a raging river to a dry creekbed--haha! It took about a year for that to happen.

The phone call replaced any workout on the Airdyne. I am sore today only in my hamstrings from the deadlifts. I had more overall soreness yesterday. I have to look at wt trng as a non-negotiable item in my life.

Here are the videos (each one is less than 3 min long) on hypertension I mentioned to Maria7 the other day:

Dr John McDougall Medical Message About: Hypertension

High Blood Pressure: A Symptom, Not a Disease

Sleep: 6.5 hrs

Water: 55 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne

Progress as of today: 49.2 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Maria7 on 03/24/2015:
Thank you. I watched each one of them. They were encouraging. I also noted he said he doesn't usually start his patients on bp meds unless bp is 160/100 or over (which mine wasn't that high, thank the Lord). Hope you are having a good day. :-)


Maria7 on 03/25/2015:
Hope you are having a nice day. Thanks again for the videos. :-)

Stiff-Leg Deadlift: 3 sets--12 reps each set

I enjoyed the short workout from yesterday. I'll plan to do the same for the next one in a couple of days. Or I may add another couple of moves. I am always cautious when starting out after a long break. This break has been longer than ever:-)

I appreciate all the encouragement from you all!

Easy does it will get you back into an exercising schedule. I agree that you should not go full speed just break it in easy. Have a great day.


thinnside40 on 03/23/2015:
Great!


grannyannie on 03/24/2015:
Yes, do be careful. I take it very easy after a long break and go slowly. Good luck.


Umpqua on 03/24/2015:
Good work and yes, it's always helpful to take a break and let your muscles recover. (L-glutamine helps too, I'm going to pop some this a.m. since I'm feeling the burn from yesterday!) I knew you'd get back in the game :)
