Weight: 139.4

Body Fat: 11.18.14::31.8%; 2.8.15::31.0%; 4.7.15::31.8%; 7.14.15::32.3%
Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 130.8 (Feb 2015)
Current BMI: 24.3 (23.5 = 135#)


For my activity: Nothing

I did a little wt trng earlier in the week and some Airdyne.

I got a short latte at S'bucks this a.m. and failed to order decaf--will probably suffer for it later when I want to be sleeping. I'm so caffeine-sensitive (re: sleep) post-menopause--and I hate it. Enjoyed the treat--I've more than avoided even decaf coffee for the last several months.

It might be 80F later this week--70sF most days at any rate.

I'll try to post daily come what may:-)

Sleep: 6 hrs

Water: 20-40 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne

Good to hear from you. I cannot do caffeine in the evening but I need it to start my day. Have a good day.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/15/2016:
Good for you on posting daily...I am sure we all want you to! haha.

Starbucks tastes good. I am soooo OVER the taste of DD. I actually do not like dunkin much anymore & think that after I use up the money on my card, i'll be getting my coffee from cheaper deli's and gas stations (which sometimes are NOT cheap)...but the deli's are. by me, some delis still charge only $1 for a cup of Joe.

Lucky you for the nice weather. We suffered Sat & Sun with weather in the teens and single digits. but now it's warmed up to something more comfortable for being outdoors at all - 30's. 30's is actually fine by me. When it gets to the 20's and lower, it doesn't even feel good to be outdoors.

re the caffeine, I've learned somehow trick my body into being less sensitive during daytime, but at night sleep is still a pain in the bu*t.

Hey BB! What’s going on girlfriend! I’ve been missing you, Lady! Anyways, your entry seems quite short to say the least. I hope all is good with you. My sleep is just as bad as yours these days. I’m waking up with flying heartbeat but not because of a physical health condition in the least. It’s fully because of anxiety. I’m not handling it well, but I’m getting thru. I guess life is what it is. Ball can’t always be in your court. At least it’ll be back in my court come springtime after this frustrating wedding! Ranting on your entry. So what is new with you? There’s got to be something you want to tell the DD community over here! I am all ears!

Fri-Mon A little of this and a little of that and some nothing

More CPAP shenanigans. Not so good for me, but I at least have a workaround for my personal situation. Am waiting for others to dictate some changes. I know they'll be made, but this healthcare bullsh*t being what it is, there's always another monkey wrench around the corner to fu*k things up:-)

Sorry to hear you having more cpap problems. Wishing you all the best.

biscottibody59 on 01/12/2016:
Thanks--I think it'll be resolved just not today:-)


Awesome50 on 01/12/2016:
Hope you get your CPAP issues worked out soon. Sounds frustrating!

biscottibody59 on 01/12/2016:
The workaround is fine for now. Thanks!


H82BFat on 01/12/2016:
Sorry, I've been out of the loop for awhile so I must ask: What is CPap?

biscottibody59 on 01/12/2016:
CPAP is continuous positive airway pressure. I have obstructive sleep apnea, which means that the airway collapses during sleep and so breathing stops periodically. The CPAP machine creates a stent of air to keep the airway open during sleep.

This is a common condition, but most people aren't getting treatment or they simply don't know they have it. It used to be exclusively connected to obese men, but it turns out that menopause and aging increase the risk. A young, skinny girl can also have it.

The health consequences range from unremitting hypertension and possibly needing to be on multiple BP lowering drugs to dementia (over time not being treated) to migraine headaches or headache upon awakening. There are many more consequences of non-treatment.

Screening for it can be a full-blown study or using a pulse oximeter (finger-type) overnight for one or more nights.

Thanks for asking!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/12/2016:
Yes, I'd have to agree about the healthcare bull-garbage! LOL, I have to say, I've enjoyed reading your ruthless words, I didn't know you had it in you. But of course I am sorry that you have to deal with it, very sorry.

Now I sorta understand your problems with sleeping - the CPAP must add to it a lot?

I hope you begin to feel better soon & also that the medical faculty are able to give you better care.

I did enjoy the flavor of this entry despite the topics which I wish you the very best in managing. But as for the flavor, I'd call it....Siracha!!!!!!!!!!!!...like the SPICY SAUCE!

Morning,Biscuit.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/09/2016:
Thank you for letting me know that info regarding CPAP...

I hope you enjoyed those days in the 70's.

You were right when you advised I leave that guy and forget about him 2 months ago. I did waste 2 more months and now I have, first time in my life, experienced true heart break for the FIRST TIME EVER. it hurt man, but i'm getting thru it pretty well since it was basically an emotional relationship without the physical aspect. anyways, thank you for telling me your true opinions that time.

also, I hope to read something interesting on your entry next time :)

Mon: Nothing

Nice to see some new and not-so-new names on the roster!

Turns out that much of what was going on with my sleep can probably be attributed to my CPAP therapy. I have gotten it addressed and now am back on track. I thought I was doing pretty well, not as well as when I first began using CPAP, but it was pretty bad. Now that it's addressed I'm hoping some other things will improve along the way.

Oh, and Happy New Year!

Would be nice to get your sleep pattern back to normal. Good luck.

biscottibody59 on 01/05/2016:
Actually this is more consistent than it's been in awhile. I'm shooting for 7-8 hrs. Earlier bedtime is essential.

Thanks!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/06/2016:
believe it or not, my sleep pattern is similar if not worse than yours as of late. I've been busy / caffinating too late in the day / waking up with too many thoughts on my mind...and it's just not working out. I ended up taking a sleeping pill at 3am last night when I woke up both hungry & with a slightly faster heart rate (due to caffeine, I know!) and lack of carbs after gym I think did it to me. carbs are sleep-inducing and do help me sleep thru the night unlike when I only do a protein bar after a hard workout...

...I don't really wanna stop the caffeine in evening as it helps my workouts. They are stronger, faster, and more intense.

What is CPAP? a breathing therapy?...anyways, i'm glad it's improving a bit - your sleep, I mean!

keep us updated on everything going on by you.

Housework definitely takes a lot outta me (when I do it lol!). So maybe that was enough exercise for you on those days. Why don’t you have anything to write? I am sure something has gone on in the last week worth writing about. Wishing you some easier sleep to come in the next few days, BB.

biscottibody59 on 12/24/2015:
I don't write much here anyway these days:-)

Just read your below entry :-) I agree that being sleep deprived is a poor way to work out. Definitely. Lately, I realize this & am trying to get more sleep & go about everything in a more constructive way. Being overtired, it's such a stress while working out. They definitely don't go well together.
