(My Personal 7-Week Lean Bodies Experiment)
Weight: 165.5

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=28.4 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity lately:
Sun: Nothing
Mon: Bike Ride 28 min/4.8 mi; Walk 20 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (16 min/3.3 mi)
Tues: Nothing

Days 139 & 141 were 0 for 2 for the routine--good breakfast and walk. Neither accomplished. Day 140 was 1 for 2 for the routine. Walk only.

I'm down a half-pound on my weigh-in Tuesday. On my measurements I'm down a little over 1.5 inches. I was considering not weighing in this week--because it seems week in and week out I'm up, I'm down, I'm all around--haha!

The day counting stops at 141 this time. To the best of my knowledge it had something to do with a weight goal, which I obviously didn't make. I'm going to start a 90-day count in an effort to lower my fat intake over time. Maybe starting tomorrow--maybe later.

Plan for today: Bike, walk (done)

Hope you get some good exercise today!

great job on the biking today...as well as the progess in inches lost!!! That is certainly very important, because the more inches gone, the better we look in our clothes!

Did you start your 90 Day Lower Fat countdown yet?


harleygirl79 on 07/27/2007:
Great job on the loss. Keep up the exercise. You'll get there. Have a great weekend!!!

I hope I get some good exercise too!!! I hope you accomplish your goals today, as you can think of Sunday as now a distant memory. I would love to go back to school again, but i'm 25 and it's probably not the best choice. I have to work and make money....especially in order to move out!!! I would LOVE to move out.


Soon2BThin on 07/24/2007:
I think we're just in the "summer limbo" right now. Bike riding sounds like fun but I'm too chicken to try it and I have no bike. Guess I'll just stay on my feet right now. I do know what that punching bag thing is you talked about. My kids had them. Hey, that would probably be a good thing to take out angry aggression on AND good arm exercise! Maybe they will bring them back, haha. Have a great week!

Tues: Walk 50 min; Pickup yard 40 min; Mowing/cleanup abt 2 hrs
Wed: Bike Ride 25 min/4.5 mi; Walk 15 min
Thurs: Walk 50 min
Fri: Nothing

Days 129 through 136 were ? . ? . ? for the routine--good breakfast and walk. I really haven't been counting and my strategy to have counting force me to make an entry didn't really work either. Day 137 was 1 for 2--had a good breakfast.

But still . . . I'm fighting, though I sometimes feel like a child's toy punching bag--the ones from my childhood that stood about 4 feet tall that you had to blow up and that had sand in a little compartment in the bottom that brought it back upright after punching it to the ground. I guess they don't make these anymore, huh!?! Probably something about them that has been deemed completely unsafe or politically incorrect haha!

I've been engaged in a food fight lately--I guess the food's been winning--go food! Hahaha!

On the weighing in every day for a week: Average for the week was 166, which was what I weighed in at on Tuesday. On my measurements I'm up slightly less than 2 inches. Weighing every day is tedious at this point, though I may revisit it again in the future. For now once a week is just enough for me.

Just when I thought I was in pretty good shape (fitness-wise), because I can jog 5-12 min at a clip (currently), I had to go and shatter my illusion by getting on a bicycle (I got a brand-new one--woo-hoo!) and ruining it--hahaha! Really, I know now why I used to be in such good shape. It was nothing for me to ride for 45 min to an hour 2-3 days per week, with a good mix of flats and hills. And take a longer ride once/week.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, NTrack, walk

Hope you get some good exercise today!

Day 128 was 1 for 2 for the routine--good breakfast and walk. Walk only.

My little jog was just great--haha! I took my dog along and someone's teacup-sized chihuahua (possibly a puppy) came out into the street after us. My dog wanted to eat it, but I kept jogging--having to pull my dog (for about a minute) like I was some kind of horse pulling a double-wide--haha! It was probably hilarious from a distance. I was able to finish my next to nothing, spot of jog!

whoa, you have a really strong dog!!! i wish i could change careers..but, you know, everything requires work...lots of it. i would love to be a nurse practicioner, but i think it may involve WAY too much math and science. it would take too much time to complete...and money. i will have to wait out this teaching thing. if i don't get anything by September, then i will definitely look into other options. this time of year there are no jobs...august should have a bunch.


GG on 07/14/2007:
Thanks for you comment, it makes me think I may live well into my 90s....now I only want to do that if I actually feel good! haha. What kind of dog do you have? I have 2 german shephards so I know exactly what you mean when you say your dog wanted to eat that "rat of a dog". Dogs are awesome work out buddies though, even if they are stubborn and obnoxious at times: it just puts more work on our bodys thus resulting in more definded arms from pulling them! haahaha!

good idea to keep tracking your weight...it will probably motivate you more, day to day! I love bike riding...but recently, i've just been using it for one purpose...to get me to and from yoga. the reason being, it's been hot and i'd rather just exercise inside. haha. i also like to ride it at the park, but not until my class is over!


GG on 07/12/2007:
Hm, no good breakfast today huh? I hope it was good a least and I hope you walk a bit more to burn off some extra calories! Good Luck!

Day 126 was 0 for 2 for the routine--good breakfast and walk. Neither accomplished.

Weight is still 164! Sickening or small favor--doesn't matter--I know it's not gonna go up if I stick with my exercise routine, but I've got to step it up and try to lower the calories too. On measurements I got back that half-inch, though I feel leaner than last week. I'll call it a wash and move on. And I'm going to weigh daily again until this scale drought or stuckness ends.

And I know it gets old--sorry to repeat it yet again--but my body looooooves this range of weight. And at my age, it seems to be fighting me to stay right about here, at the least! Damn mother nature, damn her--hahaha!

Days 122 & 123 were 1 for 2 for the routine--good breakfast and walk. Yesterday I guess I had half of a "good" breakfast--steel-cut oats. I ended up doing no activity on Thursday.

I tried some pomegranate juice out of curiosity. The taste is pretty godawful, not really pomegranatish--probably need to try a different brand. But it was quite satisfying--I really don't know what the health claims are except that it's reputed to be higher in antioxidants than other fruit juices.

I feel a little more motivated now than ever--is that possible? That forced break was probably a good thing.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, walk

Have a good day!

ewww i drank that stuff once and only once .... any time your moviated is never to much motivation. i'm not very good at the breaking down of cal, fats, etc verses the how many cal. you burn by doing excercise but you guys r great at it. keep it up .. one day at a time

Mon: Walk 10 min
Tues: Walk 45 min; Mowing/cleanup 1.5 hrs
Wed: Shopping with cart 3 hrs

Day 114 was 1 for 2 for the routine--good breakfast and walk. Walk only.

Days 115-121 were . . . who knows--except for the walk above.

In about 20 days the "day counting" for this session will be coming to an end. It gets me back here, so I'll probably come up with some other thing to count following the termination of this one.

I weighed in and measured yesterday--didn't weigh-in on Saturday. Weight was the same and I'm down a half-inch overall on my measurements--most significantly in waist and abdomen. I've been marking my food down in my little notebook this past week, but skipped Fitday logging simply because if I don't do it every day on that day, it's more than a drag to backtrack. (I need to be disciplined about it with no excuses.) And then for today and yesterday, I'm not doing either one. Will get back to Fitday tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I'll get in my exercise today as well.

The rain. I think it's rained every day for the last 3 weeks. I was finally able to get my mower back and in between raindrops get the mowing done. It was so humid on Sunday that my sportsbra was completely soaked--I generally don't sweat THAT much for that amount of time. It's pointless to watch the weather forecast because it's inevitably wrong. For instance, this upper level low has been sitting over our area (and moving back and forth and up and down) for what seems like forever. This isn't normal weather. It doesn't ever happen in Summer. EVER!!! And so maybe it will simply be here for the foreseeable future--hahaha!

It's supposed to be HOT HOT HOT here--and that's what I've come to expect and enjoy every summer. It's supposed to be hot starting on Monday. But since it's so f*@#ing wet, it's going to be damn humid as well. And if it's going to be humid, I'd just as well see the rain continue on until October for crying out loud! I guess we'll see!

Last week I went to the rinkiest, dinkiest fitness center around and was pleasantly surprised by the treadmill(s) there. Some brand I've never heard of. Same with the elliptical trainer(s). I was going to remember the names to look them up--that's how off-brandish they are (or completely out of touch I am). I looked at treadmills online several months ago when I thought I was going to have to retire my NordicTrack and the brand at the fitness center didn't come up.

I've been around a few fitness centers and know of a few brands fitness centers usually have--Precor for the ellipticals, for instance, but these were unknown to me. The treadmill(s) may be quite good in fact--the cushioning seemed adequate--no overt pain or soreness the next day. Maybe I can use the treadmill to push myself speedwise as the scale goes down. I'd love to see if I can make a dent in my 12-min test, which has been a big ho-hum the last few times.

I'll be back to use both for sure.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, walk

Have a good day!

Good for you on the exercise and on the half inch down on your measurements!! Thanks for your advice, I know its common sense, but it doesnt take much to discourage me at the moment. I know there is no quick fix, and I should stick with what I know works in the long run. Have a great day :o)


maria777 on 07/06/2007:
YAYYYYY on the exercise! Good for you! Big Smile!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/06/2007:
yeah, precor ellipticals/treadmills are GREAT! whenever i read about your activity, it makes me smile because you include the most "exotic" (not really the right word) activities! from cutting trees down to hauling stuff in the yard...to..uh...driving! LOL. the driving one still is a little tricky in my mind. however, I HATE driving...so for me its quite an endeavor...especially when i'm not familiar with the area. it seems that sometimes you spend a lot of time in the car!

i see you wrote your "20 days" are over. how do you decide when it ends? I've been counting for almost 100 days now...and i will not end until i am under 1800 calories per day. gosh, it's going to be a lot longer, too. RIght now, tomorrow is day 100! I thought about it for a moment...and realized it's only a little less than 1/2 of the year! that is scary!

will you start counting again?....you always do. oh, but it says dayt 114...and the 115-121. you don't have to explain if its complicated!
