I'm glad I didn't completely shun my exercise yesterday. As for the book, I think when we get past a certain age or reach certain milestones, we all have at least one compelling book in us. It would at least be a little cathartic to sit down and write it!

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk

Day 170 was good. My calories were entirely too low. I just tallied them and I knew they would be low, but not that low. I was led astray by stress and extreme anxiety. Anxiety is one thing that can absolutely shut my appetite down. It can also jack it up--depends on the cause of the anxiety. I'm not going to go into specifics here.

People suck and life sucks and the control one needs is elusive--sometimes. Letting go and getting a good night's rest is helpful. It was very helpful to me, though the anxiety-causing situation is still over my head. You can't get blood from a turnip!

*** . . . Newsflash . . . ***
The situation is much better. If I were just a person who took NO for an answer, my life would be easier. Thanks to my mother I'm not that person. But by the same token with the lifting of the stress comes personal responsibility, which I can handle much better than non-control. In other words I don't have total control, BUT I have been vindicated. Is that clear as mud to everyone? Carry on . . . and maybe one day I'll write a book about the last 8 years of my life.

Plan for today: Jog, walk or maybe nothing

Have a lovely day!

I like that you are writing more than you used to in your entries. I'm glad your situation has improved!!! As for anxiety, usually makes me crave sweets, hehehe! Congrats on not giving in to overeating!!! Have a happy evening!!!


borntocry on 08/17/2006:
It was pretty vague to me, but very intriguing. Let me know when that book comes out!

I am also the kind of person who can't say no. Oh wait, you actually said that you can't take "no" for an answer, not that you can't say "no". Whoops, sorry. In that case I have no advice for you! Being the type of person who gives in to others far too easily, I often feel like there is a lot to be gained from refusing to take "no" for an answer!

Thanks for the comment you left me. My running shoes are new - so no solution there for my knee pain. I think I just added on the miles too quickly when I decided to train for this next half-marathon.

Anyway, hope you work out whatever is causing you all this stress. In the meantime perhaps you can simply take advantage of the reduced appetite. Man, I wish stress had that effect on me!


becca27 on 08/17/2006:
I will buy the book!

Congrats on the weight loss! You are doing so well! Perseverance!

Wonderful! An under 1000 calorie day. They're so few and far between.

For my activity:
Sat: Half of weightlifting portion of Circ Aer Wkt; DogJog 5 min/Walk 40 min
Sun: Walk 25 min

Days 167 & 168 were good.

I completely gave up on my jog for last night. I had put on my running shoes, but something in the back of my mind told me not to go. The heat was a good reason not to go, though I had eaten half of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich before and was plenty hydrated. There was just a nagging sense that I should stay home. I left my running shoes on, and I developed this pain in the front of my ankle (that isn't there now). I guess that was the signal that I had made the right decision--haha!

Plan for today: NTrk, jog, walk

borntocry on 08/15/2006:
My policy on exercise is to force myself to change into my running clothes, no matter how reluctant I am. If I decide not to go after I'm already changed and ready to go, that means I really, really don't want to do it. And then I give myself the day off. So I think you did make the right decision.

That heat can be so intimidating. Thank goodness the heatwave here is finally over. Now it's freezing cold and rainy again, as it usually is here in the summer. Hope it cools down for you too!

Good old Nordic Track. I am telling you, they ought to make you their spokesperson. Those things are built to last. Either that or the same person that sold Jack the magic beans was also selling you a Nordic Track. :~) Have a great day.

Good on the calories! Any special secret on how to have a low calorie day? On rare occasions I'm just not hungry and don't eat much. I wish there were more days like that.

For my activity:
Wed: NordicTrack 23 min/2.4 mi; Jog 21 min/Walk 60 min
Thur: Driving abt 3 hrs; Walk 10 min

Days 164 & 165 were good.

Except for the eating:-) My analysis of the eating is thus: had to complete an anxiety-causing (of the irrational sort) task and I more or less had the opportunity to eat well afterward, so I did. The only thing was that the hot fudge sundae was a little bigger than usual.

I wanted to jog last night, but I had only slept 4 hours the night before and feeling slightly out of gas, I skipped it. It was terribly hot and just felt like a blowing furnace even close to 9 p.m. I was really glad I didn't go jogging, but I also was feeling like a slacker and wondered if I would be able to get right back to it today. I think I'll be okay:-)

Plan for today: NTrk, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

You'd better stop this, biscotti - take it from someone who knows! Last week I thought I could get away with eating like there's no tomorrow, because I was at a lowish weight and somehow the scale didn't seem to be going up. But this week I'm paying the price! It will catch up to you sooner or later, and you don't want to blow it like I did!


monet0239 on 08/10/2006:
Good morning sweetie..

man oh man.. you need to get this under control.. like Born said.. it will catch up with ya and then you'll be feeling all down..:(.. so shake it off.. smile and just know you can control this.. you are the boss.. not the food.. and just think.. even if it was the end of the world.. I would like to think the big man up stairs has way better food going on there when we have here.. hehehe.. so its ok.. hehe.. hugssss.. you have a wonderful day hun.. and be strong..


maria777 on 08/10/2006:
Look at you!!! Already down to 156.5! Congratulations to you!


WorkingIt on 08/11/2006:
Hey Biscotti, thanks for pointing me to the other journals, I do appreciate it! Good luck with getting back into your calorie range! Do you track your calories when you binge or just hate it so much that you try to forget it? The first couple times I fell off the goal wagon, I did not track any calories. When I did it again, I decided I'd try to get a ballpark range, and to my horror I found I was eating close to 3,000 calories! You'll get back on track, I have faith! Have a great day =)

For my activity: DogJog 5 min/Walk 60 min

Day 162 was good. I skipped the Airdyne (bike) workout.

I'm down a half-pound on my weigh-in. And on my measurements I'm up .75 inch overall. I'm down the most in my leg measurement, three-eighths inch, probably owing to the increased walking I've been doing. It's sure not because of the zillions of calories over 1800 I've been eating recently. That has to be the locked-in upper limit of my intake--1800! Period.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, walk

Have a lovely day!

borntocry on 08/09/2006:
Hey, way to go, you!

I'm trying to do the same thing - make 1800 my absolute upper limit. For some reason this seems to be impossible for me. I feel that 1500 calories would be a "normal" amount for a small person like me, but it's either 1200 or 2400 - nothing in between. I've been keeping track of my calories in an Excel file and the vast majority of my days are either under 1200 or over 1800. How many days at 1500? One!


becca27 on 08/09/2006:
Where did your measurements go up? That's very curious! I'm glad the scale has you down. You are making great steady progress, though. Keep up the good work!


Moody on 08/09/2006:
I've had that happen to me before, I lost 11 pounds and my inches went down everywhere but my bust!! That actually increased 1/4 inch. Go figure! Keep up the good work; you are an inspiration!
