Day 72: Calorie goal yes--water goal no!

In retrospect those couple of days (a couple weeks ago) that I ate an estimated 4000 calories (on one of the days) seem to have been a good thing for my focus. And I donated the Suzy Qs to some cops! The cakes were still "fresh" according to the expiration date--haha!

Getting some decent exercise has been great for my outlook. It was hard to start from nothing for about a week--but I can say I'm that many days past it--doing nothing.

Oh yeah, a little PSA: I checked smoke detectors by using matches to see if they responded to the smoke. One of them is not working despite the little red light. I have to get some batteries anyway, but I suspect the thing may not be working. It didn't beep upon pushing the button either.

Check your smoke detectors if you don't remember the last time you did so!

Plan for today: Circuit Workout, NTrack, Airdyne, Walk

A good rule of thumb for those that don't know (they push it around here) is to ALWAYS change your batteries in your smoke detector when you set the clocks back in the fall. [Trust me, it could save a life. when I was seven our house caught fire in the middle of the night. The batteries in the smoke detector had been dying - making the detector beep off and on - so someone took the batteries out and didn't replace them...had the dog barking not woke my mother up, I think the four of us wouldn't be here today...]


fritters on 11/16/2007:
Thanks for the reminder about smoke detectors. You are really doing good with your exercise and calories. Happy weekend


kyrin on 11/17/2007:
Hi, Biscotti! ...Nice job with your intake today. ...That darned water is hard to do sometimes--especially when the weather starts to turn colder. I know that hot tea and (sugarfree) Apple cider (mix) are not the same thing, but when I just can't face one more ounce of water...

{{Hugs}}


workingit2 on 11/17/2007:
LOL I donate my junk food to my brother, glad I'm not the only one! Have a great day =)


fritters on 11/17/2007:
in answer to your question - yes with an eviction notice and an attorny I got my brother out. The house was sold in June.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/17/2007:
you're doing really well! keep on going.

btw, in general, my family relationship stinks....small family and we don't do much together. i have my close friends, but we don't talk all the time. food is my comfort and although when it fills you up it feels uncomfortable, i still for some reason find comfort in that feeling.

Tues-Sun: Essentially Nothing

Days 63-68: Calorie goal no--water goal no!

Hmm, what was the point I was trying to make with all of this? Oh yeah--moderate weight loss through moderate calorie intake and as much activity as I can tolerate. Though it sometimes appears to be a desperate attempt--it really is worth it, including the struggle I seem to be having lately.

Actually I did have some quite active days, but they weren't mostly for me, much less anything I could count toward my weightloss endeavor. Actually I had a couple of hairy/sucky days there, didn't get enough sleep right away, but I'm ready to get back after it now.

Counting days didn't get me back to make an entry most of last week. Nor have I been counting calories or writing down my food in my little notebook. I haven't been overeating either. I've just been in the middle of a bit of slothfulness. It happens. Sometimes it seems to happen frequently. Usually it's short-lived. Time will tell--won't it!

I gotta get moving people!

Look at it this way Biscotti, if you had made no attempt at all you would be a lot unfitter than you are now and probably a darn size bigger too. You are making the effort !!! Dont get despondent now, you keep me going !


mylifechanges on 11/12/2007:
you are SO close to your goal Biscotti! Ten pounds! I mean- ten pounds! You can do ten pounds- you've totally got it in you to knock this thing out! :) I hope you have a wonderful evening and a great food/exercise day tomorrow. Remember you're worth it!


kyrin on 11/13/2007:
Hey, Biscotti! It's nice to see some of the old timers are still around. Do you remeber me? Kyrin. The challenge lady. (grinning at you)

Only ten pounds to go? Totally do-able. I know that you can do this!

Hugs!

On my weigh-in I'm the same, believe it or not, and that's just fine with me today! It's been so long since I've lifted weights that I'm dreading the initial soreness--oh well, I have to do it.

*Update*
Gotta do some unexpected cleaning, tidying and organizing so I hope I'll at least have time for a walk much later!

greengirl on 11/10/2007:
Hi Biscottibody. I'm back, and so is my motivation. Been a bit stressed recently but now I'm OK. I see you are still maintaining, I hope to be back with you soon, and trying my best to get into the 150s. I shall set myself some goals and get back to basics again :0). Your unexpected cleaning and tidying will probably use up as much energy as a walk. Do your thing !!!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/05/2007:
Do you ever have a goal based on what you'd like the percentage of good days to be for the 84 day count? I think that would be really cool. For instance, making a goal for you to accomplish the 84 day count at least 85% if the time. It would be interesting to see how often the goal ends of being met. Do you ever look back and see?

anyways, I like the goals very much. You'll definitely notice a change if you keep your goals up, even after one week!

I've got to find someone to donate these nasty snack cakes to--Hostess Suzy Q's in case you care--or they're probably going to be trashed--something I really don't like to do. Normally I'd take them back for a refund, but in this case it's all my fault--there's nothing wrong with them except that I don't think I could eat even one bite unless I had NOTHING else to eat!

Numbers below are estimates. I finally had it with my "Eat All You Want" experiment. I was looking at one of my diet books, because doesn't eating like a billy goat go right along with reading diet books haha! Anyway, this quote applied to my experiment, "You can have all you want, but you don't want all you can have."

Day 58: Calorie goal no--water goal no!

I guess what I've been doing today and yesterday is sort of my own version of "Schick Center" aversion therapy for food/weight loss. My rules: Eat whatever you want, you can't allow yourself to get hungry, but you can't overeat so that you're overly full/full to feeling pain either. Feeling pain is utter failure. Sounds kinda sick to actually write it down, but that's it!

It rather precludes drinking much water until the nighttime (for me)--I've got to reserve space for the actual food. Though I wasn't going to count yet, I sort of did a cursory calorie count for yesterday--it was around 4100 give or take a hundred--the fiber count was over 50. I couldn't have really exercised much because that would cut into my eating time for crying out loud;-)

I don't want to do it one more day and, in fact if I do, I'll have to go to the grocery store and I sure don't want to eat the same things I've been eating. I've eaten everything I wanted to eat and planned to eat for this little experiment.

I have learned something from this. If I eat exactly what I want, I don't want to eat the things that I've sort of designated as treats when I'm trying to stay within my calories, like chocolate for instance. I've eaten only one thing that could be considered to be in the chocolate family--a snack cake with fake cream filling--pretty revolting--though I could probably stand to just eat one of the pieces of cake and throw away the rest! The other thing I learned is that I skirt the edge of this behavior all the time and it's time to step far away from that edge, try to gain some control if possible (if not some different habits) and do what I can do to lose some weight. Not the up and down--something sustainable.

BTW, I don't know what the actual Schick Center did for weight loss--I think you'd have to be at least 45 to remember the commercials or the Saturday Night Live spoofs even (I don't know of anyone who actually went to one of the centers for treatment). Kinda reminds me of the commercial where the woman is yelling to the man, "Don't take the car, you'll kill yourself!" I think that one was for some kind of alcohol treatment. I've read one account that the Schick Center attached electrodes to shock your hands while you're eating your "weakness food" and then they call out something that frightens you, like roaches or spiders or whatever. I'm pretty sure the smoking cessation method was a little different--having you smoke continuously until you just got sick of it. That was more what I was going for with my 2 days of "aversion therapy."

Of course the proof of the pudding is in the eating--maybe this will be good for my future, maybe not. At any rate, I bit, I chewed, I enjoyed--with some abandon--if just for today and yesterday!

Plan for today: Walk

Have a good food day!

You asked if exercising was something new - nope- I belonged and went to the ymca regulary for about 2 years then I quit and joined curves 1 1/2 years ago. I have tried to go for 1 hour 5-6 days a week. I wish that was why I have come to a weight loss halt so soon!

HAPPY WEEKEND
