Don't worry you will get there. I must admit - I have learned thst in weight loss, nutrition is more important than exercise! The proof is in the pudding - I haven't had great cardio in 2 years, but when I cut calories, I still get leaner despite it. Thank god for weights!

biscottibody59 on 07/09/2015:
I hear you:-)


hollybelle on 07/08/2015:
Good comment by HOP above - I have been trying to focus less on cardio and more on weights - when I do exercise which isn't much lately - but I'm working up to it! Hang in there!


ohioraven on 07/08/2015:
Well, at least you've checked in here. That's something.

I'll be safe enough. I'm letting all the highly intoxicated drunks shoot off the fireworks. Ahhh...the memories.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/05/2015:
Hi BB! I hope you had a nice 4th too! Here it was tame and nice. Just the way I hoped it would be. No big parties no large crowds. Easy Peasy with my best friend! Sometimes it's those little things, few people, that make it a good time, ya know!?

Anyways, reading your entries, and today reading your sleep totals...makes me think of my entry. I also posted about my sleep. Only 4 hours last night but surpisingly, i'm not really tired now. Maybe later i'll be!? I guess when things are relaxed and we're enjoying life, sleep once in awhile can be an afterthought!? usually that's not my way...but the book was too good to put down :)

that's great exercise. why do you do 41 minutes as opposed to either 40 or 45!?

have a great day, BiscottiB!


Umpqua on 07/06/2015:
I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend. And thanks for your comment on my Mom - it's been hit and miss with her since she got so sick and she's going through periods of being stronger and even driving for small distances (with the oxygen) and much weaker periods. We are in the latter right now but hoping she will eventually get stronger again with some effort.

Wow, you really walked quite a bit in that grocery store! You must have seriously checked out every aisle if it took your 1.5hours!?

biscottibody59 on 07/03/2015:
Actually it was a new store so I was kind of getting my bearings and I hadn't been groc shopping for awhile.


Umpqua on 07/01/2015:
You're getting really consistent with your exercise, Biscotti, nice work!

biscottibody59 on 07/03/2015:
Thanks for noticing--it's something:-) I hope I can keep it up--it really is just that old consistency thing (and keeping in the habit) for me most of the time.


hollybelle on 07/01/2015:
I so relate to long walks in grocery - I can take a long time if I haven't been in awhile.....it really is exercise when I go! Activities of life!

biscottibody59 on 07/03/2015:
Yes--I need to go more often for shorter trips. Probably need to update my pantry items too!

No weigh-in again this week.

The challenge ended yesterday--I can say it wasn't a rousing success. It wasn't one of my totally structured ones anyway. I did well today--'til one wheel came off--tacos. Will put the wheel back on and hit back today!

F'ups happen--I'm going to try to not going to go days and days toward letting them get to me before acting to change things. Human life is just too short to wait for the proverbial tow truck to arrive:-)

Mistyrose on 06/23/2015:
It wasn't a total loss either. Have a good week. What is Airdyne ?

biscottibody59 on 06/23/2015:
Thank you--I agree:-)

Mine is an exercise bike--the one with a big fan for the resistance. And you can use your arms too. The more you exert--the more resistance. It's an older (80s?) model.

I couldn't find an online picture of my exact model.


Umpqua on 06/23/2015:
Your exercise has gotten more consistent so you are steadily making changes. Keep at it!

biscottibody59 on 06/23/2015:
Thanks--I'm glad you noticed!

I hope it gets to be almost automatic once again. Every day is a little easier. I feel good about it so far!


puddles on 06/23/2015:
I think you did good. Next week you will do better just keep renewing your challenge. Sometimes we are just too hard on ourselves. Wishing you a great week ahead.


Mistyrose on 06/24/2015:
Thanks for the explanation. Now I know what equipment you are talking about


ohioraven on 06/24/2015:
At least it wasn't a taco buffet.


grannyannie on 06/24/2015:
Hang in there. You'll do fine. :)


Maria7 on 06/24/2015:
Hoping you are having a good day. :-)


horn_of_plenty on 06/24/2015:
Yes life does have a tendency to get in the way....just be glad u finished your challenge! And yes thank u for the reminders and info on my recent entry. I will take your advice and look into all of it.

Another no weigh-in Tuesday!

My breakfast wasn't healthy or health-supporting. The rest of the day will be. I'm going to throw caution to the wind and do a 4-day challenge beginning tomorrow. Ah--accountability!

Good luck on your 4 day challenge. Have a great rest of the day.

accountability! lol. Im the same way....

Good luck on your challenge!

I hope the challenge goes well!


hollybelle on 06/19/2015:
Go 4 day challenge! You can do it! 1, 2, 3 4! Regarding non health supporting breakfast - did you at least enjoy it? If so then OK - move on. As long as I don't make it a habit when I do that I just say it will help me not binge later because it has some kind of phsycological effect that I am not deprived.

biscottibody59 on 06/22/2015:
It was pretty good!


Maria7 on 06/19/2015:
Hope you are having a good day. :-)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/22/2015:
I like your 4-day challenge! I was just reading something about that...it was someone's post on facebook stating that she does well when she gives herself online challenges that others can participate in, also.

I have started a new book by Sarno! I forgot it at work - trying to read it there, but reading in slow motion since it's only at lunch and I like to eat my lunch, too!

biscottibody59 on 06/22/2015:
Yeah, I don't participate in "other-directed" challenges. They generally don't work for me.

Mine are usually "Kyrin-inspired" (you may not remember her here) and they generally keep me focused if I choose the parameters wisely.


Mistyrose on 06/23/2015:
Good luck on you challenge

horn_of_plenty on 06/15/2015:
Once in awhile "nothing" is ok. Don't get too down about it :)

I can never thank you enough for the Sarno books. I may start reading one at lunch since I can't walk right now. We'll see. Maybe even just a couple pages during lunch (since I gotta eat). It would be good to read about more positive ways of self healing :)

I don't know what happened to the font size on many previous entries. They looked fine to me in fact they looked like this one does. This may look too small, but to me it looks just right. If the large size looked awful on your screen, I apologize. I looked at them on my tablet and they looked "normal" on that too.

This looks good and no apologies necessary. Your sleeping habit seems to be consistent and your getting as much water as I am which is the big problem with me. Have a great evening.


Umpqua on 06/13/2015:
Looks good to me too, a little smaller than previous but they're both fine :) Yay for consistent sleep and I hope you have a nice weekend!


ohioraven on 06/13/2015:
I can't see a thing. Especially your weight training results.

biscottibody59 on 06/14/2015:

biscottibody59 on 06/09/2015:
It takes planning for me to get more than 4 hrs--plus I couldn't get any of it without CPAP therapy.

Hey There, Biscuit.

You are so right about the sandwich generation thing, I've really been feeling the pressure lately. Not much to be done about it except hope situations improve. Great stretch of sleep you had there!

Maria7 on 06/06/2015:
What kind of trees do you have? I see that you do a lot of yard work similar to what I do. Do you also have piles of leaves to bag and take off periodically?

biscottibody59 on 06/06/2015:
Oaks, elms and live oaks. I just mulch the leaves with the mower as I mow--I don't overthink it too much:-)

It's not my favorite thing anymore. Never really was, but I really don't like it now--to put it mildly.


Umpqua on 06/08/2015:
