You're getting lots of rain out there, Texas. Have a Great Day.


Umpqua on 05/29/2015:
Nice to hear you got a break from the rain. Good work on the exercise!


liza36 on 05/29/2015:
Hope the sun sticks around a little longer. Have a good weekend.

Hey Biscotti! I am just thankful it's not my lower legs that have tendinitis now....thank gosh!

Sun is very good for you...maybe I shall get some today :)

For my activity:
Mon: Airdyne 36 min; Shoulder presses 12 reps x 3 sets; JIP 150 steps (300 if you count both legs--haha); Calf raises 20 reps x 3 sets (Shoulder and Calf ex using 5.5 dumbbells)
Tues: Short Walk

Nope--no weigh-in Tuesday. Of no consequence for the diary. I'm eating like a crazy person. I needed to put weight on a couple of months ago, but now that's not necessary. I'm hoping to keep being as active as possible and pull myself out of the frying pan, so to speak:-)

For me, exercise is so key to my well-being. Food should come first, but I'm just not made that way. I did have two full days of Esselstyn-type eating last week, so it's not that I can't do it. I just have to try very hard to leave emotions out of it. I felt really good--duh:-)

Sleep: 
Mon: 7 hrs
Tues: 6.5

Water: 40ish oz both days

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Some Yard Work

Umpqua on 05/27/2015:
Hey, 2 days of Esselstyn eating is something :) And great work on the exercise!


grannyannie on 05/27/2015:
Well done! Have a great day.


puddles on 05/27/2015:
We have to do what is best for us. Have a great day.

For my activity:
Fri-Sun: Some housework and some nothing

Let's talk about rain--even though it's gotten boring. Weather pattern is stuck apparently. I check my rain gauge and though I'm not marking it down, we've probably had about 14-16 inches of rain in the last several weeks--most of it in May.

Sleep: 7 hrs

Water: 24 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Some wt trng and stuff

grannyannie on 05/26/2015:
Have a great week!


Umpqua on 05/26/2015:
I hope the rain isn't getting you down too much. The weather patterns have gotten so wonky and extreme and I don't think it's a good thing. Hang in there and I hope this is a good week for you!

biscottibody59 on 05/27/2015:
Apparently it's the El Nino effect. Not sure how that goes for the long-term, but I thought about it and since I got about 30 min of sun yesterday, it confirmed that it is getting me down a little. (I felt so much better as the day wore on.) We're still in a mild drought at any rate.

I am looking forward to some high 80s and some 90sF soon.

I'm weighing in, but am rather ignoring it for the purposes of this diary. I'm not doing what I should. I dabble, but nothing is sticking for me at the moment. It's a matter of avoiding distraction. Of course:-)

Just keep at it eventually it will work out. Have a great weekend.

You'll get going again! :-)

I have a friend in Mexia, Tx. He's going through some flooding right now. Thanks for the comments. I'm going to keep running. It's kinda addicting.


Umpqua on 05/12/2015:
Yay for a workout and good weekend sleep! You're lucky to get some rain, we've had fire danger both here in the NE and of course where my folks are in the NW.


liza36 on 05/12/2015:
"Kinda on track" is awesome! Keep it up.

Little by little you will get there. Have a good day.

Everything counts. :-)


horn_of_plenty on 05/10/2015:
Yep a little is far better than nothing - makes a big difference!!! Nice to see you posting and holding yourself accountable!!


Umpqua on 05/11/2015:
No matter, easing into exercise is better than no exercise. Keep it up!

For my activity: Nothing but a short walk

I blew off the planned activity yesterday.

I am determined to get past this chapter of my existence though, so I'm going to try to post daily. It's not magic, but it will help to keep me mindful and see the examples of all the good going on with you all--not to mention the support. I need it more than ever!

I look forward to reading your post every day. It does help me to post every day the good ones and the bad ones.


grannyannie on 05/09/2015:
Yes, posting daily helps. If I had done that during our month in Thailand I'm sure I wouldn't have gained 14 pounds! As for Ed Milliband...politics is complicated here. I am a member of the Labour party and voted for Ed as leader 5 years ago. But he's been going too much to the right. The offer here was that the Scottish party MPs elected would pledge themselves to Labour and give them the needed majority to win. But this freaked out a lot of England who then turned around and voted Tory instead. They fear Scottish votes - too socialist.

biscottibody59 on 05/09/2015:
While I didn't know that he had made a shift, it makes sense. Sounds like the effects of this election may be pretty devastating.

Anytime people vote against their own best interest I shake my head!


OhioRaven on 05/09/2015:
I've always enjoyed harassing you in the past. And I'm looking forward to it in the future. I know I can't do well when I'm off of this site. That's why I have to post every day.

No Tuesday weigh-in.

I am sooooooo weak--yeah, it's THAT bad--no muscle tone. Not much to do about it except to keep attempting to eat right and do some wt trng a couple/three days a week.

A bit low on sleep hours, but as long as it's only one day, it's okay. It was all sleep, so I'm fine with it.

Sleep: 5ish hrs

Maria7 on 05/07/2015:
Hope you feel better. Lots of work to do outside... Hubby and I with the help of a good neighbor yesterday took down a big oak tree in the front yard and Hubby has it ready (we stacked it after he put it in pieces with his chainsaw) to cure for using in the wood stove, probably winter after next, Lord willing. Take care and try not to overdo. :-)

biscottibody59 on 05/08/2015:
Yeah, overdoing it isn't in my vocabulary at the moment--thanks for your words!


grannyannie on 05/07/2015:
Uh oh! You can do it!

biscottibody59 on 05/08/2015:
I'm a little frustrated, so thanks! Catalyst for change--right?


puddles on 05/07/2015:
Keep at it and have a great day.

biscottibody59 on 05/08/2015:
Thanks!


Umpqua on 05/07/2015:
Sorry to hear you're struggling. Keep up the fight, we're with you!

biscottibody59 on 05/08/2015:
Thanks--I needed that:-)


OhioRaven on 05/07/2015:
Cheer up, Texas. You probably need the rest.

biscottibody59 on 05/08/2015:
