Will count tomorrow's weigh-in as official. I'm close to posted at this point.

I was mostly out of commission for about 72 hrs there. It was the result of much food excess. I may have also had a stomach virus too, because I had a little nausea and some chills for a few hours. I haven't been that sick in years. It takes a lot to put me to bed with "the ick." I was completely exhausted. It finally hit me how sleep-deprived I had become.

I'm re-assessing (as usual). I can't afford to not pay close attention so that this doesn't happen again. I overindulged over Christmas, but it didn't do this to me. I realized too that I'm not putting myself first despite telling others to do that. I think I'll keep my mouth shut until I can sufficiently feel I'm doing that for myself:-)

Will try to get in a wt trng session today.

For my activity:
Tues: Airdyne 22 min (PBk); Walk 27 min; Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (16 min/1.3 mi)
Wed: Some Housework

I set my dumbbells at 8# for the wt trng workout Tuesday. It was too light for a couple of exercises. I wasn't sure I'd get the whole thing done. I took my time. I think Tuesday will probably mark my lowest point for fitness since hitting my highest weight (age 40ish). At least I had some muscle tone then despite not doing much wt trng in the couple of years before that high wt.

I did fine with the workout Tuesday. I didn't get full range of motion for the regular pushups or the first set of bicycle crunches. I was surprised I could do any mtn climbers at all. I had been doing lunges with the mini-bootcamp workout (last one in early Jan), but on Tues using even that little added weight of the dumbbells was a little difficult.

I can only improve:-) If nothing else, it showed just how far I have to go to satisfy my expectations. I knew I was in terrible shape, but not that bad. It's what happens without wt trng. I did a few of the bootcamp-type workouts, but I need to consider that as a supplement to wt trng.

Weight's been around 159-161. I'll post whatever it is this next Saturday or Tuesday. Diet has been horrible.

Today was to be my body fat check day--using the Omron, but I'm bumping it up to 6 weeks from today. I should have no problem getting my wt trng done today--the dumbbell wts will be looooow:-) This session should be revealing.

Still rollin' with the punches:-) I think I'll be back to at least my posted weight by the end of the week. Good day today--I did my early exercise--44 min worth!

From about Sat-Thur the temps are forecast to be in the 70sF--I'm looking forward! Today we're having freezing rain, a little sleet and perhaps some snow later on.
