hummus recipe looks good, I'll try it. We usually use the tahini, but this looks interesting. I made a beet hummus once - delicous the first couple of bites, but a bit much after that! :)

Felt like I was coming down with something big--I just don't normally get the bugs that go around. Anyway, I took it easy. Got some sleep and I'm feeling much better (if not back to where I was) today. I can't say 100% because I haven't been there in years.

Thanks again MENOPAUSE--YOU SUCK more than anything on earth! (Nope, still haven't made my peace with it!) I will eventually, but to be fair to good ol' "M," I could do more--much more.

I'll put up a FF hummus recipe in the forum soon. I'm not fond of store-bought hummus at all. To me it bears no resemblance whatsoever to hummus at home (whether you add tahini--added fat--or not). And it's rather expensive in those tiny containers.

Not much else to say here. Just wanted to get an entry in. For the next week or two I may go back to a different workout--body weight only. I'm rescheduling the BF check 'til next month.

I totally understand Menopause - Looking forward to seeing your Hummus recipe. Have a great week.


museumgirl on 10/18/2014:
Menopause sucks, but I think it is better on the other side (at least, I THINK I am on the other side). It's like having puberty, but without the energy, killer body, and hope for the future. It sucks. Hang in there. I look forward to the hummus, as well. My husband makes it, but I can never get him to do it.


Destiny65 on 10/20/2014:
Agree to the menopause cr)$&(p! Looking forward to recipe too!

I did well--food was just right with no deviations from the plan. I had more than enough of the hummus I made. It's just too good and too easy for me to overeat.

Not going to mention it--the wt trng workout--haha!

I love homemade hummus! So much better than store bought, isn't it? And you're doing awesome.

Hi, Biscotti. Love hummus also but am content with the commercial varieties.

I'm down 2.2# for my weigh-in today. Kind of a lot for me, but I'll take it.

I'm embracing eating a no-added fat, veg, fruit, whole starch, bean (all as whole as possible) diet as of yesterday and throughout this week. I'm prepared with the food. Later today I'll make some roasted red pepper hummus (no tahini or other added fat).

Now if I can just get this pesky workout in--I'll be all right. At least for today:-)

going to work and the daily grind will be tiring with the gym and definitely also without the gym! you are right, I'm ready for a turnaround right now LOL. but, i will say, i don't mind being lazy tonight....and planning to take a sleeping pill to get me a lil tired earlier, but still, i have worked hard to get stronger...and no I'm throwing it away...good thing i can always get it back :) i just hope to heal :)

hey BB lady! Well, it's the second time I've heard "Happy Indigenous People's Day!" today! I like it, now I can use it next year with my friends ;) Looks like some pretty good sleep last night for you! I am looking forward to lots of sleep this week...and maybe next week too. Working on healing the inside even if it means the outside(muscular strength) is gonna lose some of it's zing since I am putting it all on hold :(

we've had a bit of rain too...lately I've come to realize, that rain no longer upsets or bothers me - at all!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/13/2014:
you are probably VERY smart to skip a workout due to soreness. The body must heal before we add more injury to our structure. It's the greatest mistake I ever made.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/13/2014:
yes, it always pays off to help the body feel better and not worse.


museumgirl on 10/13/2014:
Love it. In college my husband coined a phrase for indigenous people - IATTOC (pronounced eye-uh-tock) - stands for "Inhabitants at the time of Columbus."

Just a yechhh! day yesterday. Maybe the weather change--turned colder--did it to me. I think we're done with the upper 90sF for awhile. And we got some good rain the other night.

I'm not going to promise anything for today, but if I get the wt trng done today or tomorrow I'll be satisfied.

I'm done with the goals for the week--moving on. My food was awful for the last couple of days.

I got a little twinge of soreness before I was going to do my workout on Thursday, so I didn't do the workout. Was fine yesterday, but then I had a little odd neck pain (short-lived) yesterday. I wasn't into working out anyway, so I didn't.

I'm going to do my best to get back in the groove today. Today I don't seem to have an excuse:-) Seriously though, I pay attention to these little twinges of pain, and it normally pays off to get some decent sleep and do a little reset.

Smart to listen to your body. Have a better day. I skipped a walk today, too, but did other things. Some days just aren't for extra exercise :)

1) 100% on my food goal (90-95% no added oil, salt, sugar mainly veg and a little fruit). 2) Wt trng scheduled for today and then I'll take two days off from it. 3) Bedtime was much earlier than it has been for awhile.

With my Airdyne interval workout yesterday, I had a bump of endurance for the faster parts of the intervals. I also added 2 intervals, so I will probably increase the "faster" minute to a little more next time. I know it's the effect of the wt trng--increase in muscle mass. I also know it's not much of an increase so soon, but it's noticeable.

I'm dying to check my body fat, but I'll wait 'til the scheduled date of 10.21. I expect some loss, but I have no clue how much. I just know SOME wt trng has an effect. Several months of consistent wt trng will be huge.

museumgirl on 10/09/2014:
how do you check your body fat? I'm curious to know, but scared to find out!!

biscottibody59 on 10/09/2014:
I use a handheld Omron Fat Loss monitor (it's formal name--haha).

It's not as accurate as other methods--skinfold caliper, hydrostatic weighing, etc. For me I find it to be consistent.

I had a scale that also used the same technology as the Omron, but it sucked for consistency.

Before I had the monitor, I would occasionally use a website where you plug in a few measurements to get an estimate of BF. That was a good "go-by" for me for a few years.

I'll put a link or two for some websites that use measurements in my entry tomorrow.

*** Update--couldn't get my workout in, so I'll hit it tomorrow. At least I got on the Airdyne first thing. Anyway, I didn't want to take the chance to push the old bod with the little sleep I've been putting up with. Sleep wins this round! ***

1) 50% on my food goal (90-95% no added oil, salt, sugar mainly veg and a little fruit). 2) Wt trng scheduled for today and then I'll take two days off from it. 3) Again got to bed much later than I'd like.

I'm going to incorporate some of my "circuit" exercises into the basic 3-4 set wt workout I've done. Hard to believe I've just done it twice because I can feel the improvement already. All soreness is gone, but with new moves added today--ones I haven't done in forever--I expect some soreness in places:-)
