Hi, Biscuit. New Normals are great goals. You taught me that.


grannyannie on 10/10/2013:
Good idea to reevaluate your goals. Good luck and have a great day.


Umpqua on 10/10/2013:
I think it's a good idea too. And you are so great at maintaining that a new normal could work very well for you. Good going on your exercise!

I got rid of that sorry 160 number on my weight as I weighed in this morning. No bootcamp yesterday--felt awful after eating too much sugar on Wednesday (that's my theory because I can't tie it to anything else). I was only a little sore in my mid-section from the ab work the other day, so I don't think it was that. Maybe it was a combination. I probably could have done it in the early evening, but I decided to just lay low.

Being sore from exercise is not my aim especially when I'm just getting my tendons/ligaments back in the swing from so much inactivity (other than mostly walking). The last thing I want to do is to overdo it. I'll be patient and simply expect that I will get to a BF% that begins with a 2 in due time. Things will look and feel better then--I hope:-) With that I'll plan to use the 8# dumbbells for today and then bump them to the next level for next time.

This morning I took all measurements, checked my body fat using my little Omron gadget (35.4%) and weighed in. With how I ate most of September and the little activity I got, I am (of course) surprised my poundage is not worse. My activity has been consistently low for awhile, but September was about as bad as ever for me for the last 10ish years.

I'm going to try to make the month of October free of ALL COFFEE (decaf too). I'll also keep tracking activity.

I plan to post daily or thereabouts, which means I'm more or less back. In other news we got a bottomload of rain the week before last--about 5 inches. I happened to be out in the torrential portion of the show and let it wash my car, which wasn't very dirty to begin with. It did the trick! We also got a little more yesterday--none of it killed the drought unfortunately.

I'll do a seriously SERIOUS weigh-in, etc on Tuesday--yeah it's up:-)

Oh, I've only had two bits (less than 4 ounces) of coffee since I had my daily count on my diary. I'd say I'm over it. Next will be the decaf--I just don't need the milk products. I'm not lactose intolerant, but the draw of the fat is something I need to get completely away from. I've tried it with the plant "milks" over the last several years from time to time. I just don't care much for coffee that way.
