(Short Challenges :: Wt Trng :: Pre-Bkfst Cardio)
Weight: 155.6

1) 80% on my food goal (90-95% no added oil, salt, sugar mainly veg and a little fruit). 2) Wt trng today. 3) Not even close to decent bedtime hour.

Thanks for the encouraging comments on my wt trng. While it's not a piece of cake at first--I'm pretty sore in spots today--being consistent WILL work!

I've done some kind of wt trng off and on since my late teens--I made my peace with it in my 40s--wish I were as consistent in the last few years as I was then.

Wt trng really helps me. It helps boost my confidence.

Losing lean mass through aging hits both men and women. There are studies showing that even 80 y/o women can benefit from wt trng. I've been stunned by what I've lost in the last couple of years. I'm glad I can do what (I think) is necessary to help myself get and stay strong. Consistency, however has always been my bugaboo, it's more important at this stage of my life than ever. Time will tell how this goes.

Exercise: Nothing

Sleep: 5.5 hrs

Water: 60 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Wts routine from Saturday

Weight training is great, I just can't seem to make myself do it!


OhioRaven on 10/07/2014:
Good post today, Biscuit. You got me thinking.

(Short Challenges :: Wt Trng :: Pre-Bkfst Cardio)
Weight: 155.6

1) 30% on my food goal (90-95% no added oil, salt, sugar mainly veg and a little fruit). 2) Had a great wt trng session. The routine is taken from a Lean Bodies book. 3) Got to bed much later than I'd like.

I'll just say that I'm relieved to get the first wt trng session done after too many months without. I feel good--felt good immediately afterward--didn't overdo it. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Exercise: Wt Training--I used 5.5# dumbbells for all exercises except the scissor kicks and the pushups. Here's the deal:
Squat: 3 sets of 10-10-10 reps
Floor Press: 4 sets of 12-12-12-12 reps
Bent-Over Row: 4 sets of 10-10-10-10 reps
Shoulder Press: 4 sets of 10-10-10-10 reps
Biceps Curl: 4 sets of 12-12-12-12 reps
Triceps Kickback: 4 sets of 10-10-10-10 reps
Calf Raise
: 3 sets of 31-26-31 reps
Scissor Kicks: 3 sets of 20-25-26 reps (one rep is the alt movement of each leg)
Bent-Knee Pushups: 3 sets of 10-10-10 reps

Sleep: 7 hrs

Water: 30 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Housework

I wish I had your enthusiasm. I'm having troublev etting my ass off the couch.

1) 100% on my food goal (90-95% no added oil, salt, sugar mainly veg and a little fruit). 2) Wt trng session will be today. I'll use the lowest or no weight for most everything--not interested in injuring myself. 3) Got to bed at a decent hour.

I think I'll be okay:-) :-) :-)

I'm going to shoot for 90-95% no added oil, salt, sugar mainly veg and a little fruit for the next week. I intend to get a wt trng session in every other day. I'm not going to overdo any of it. The last thing is to get to bed at a decent hour. I've become quite the night owl and it makes everything harder.

looks like some lovely biscottibody sleep! wow....9.5 hours straight would be a dream!

biscottibody59 on 10/04/2014:
Sleeping 8-10 hrs is an anomaly for me, but I had been quite sleep deprived during the week.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/05/2014:
glad you were able to catch some! It feels so good when you finally can!

I am doing a horrible job of sticking to much of my plan. It's demoralizing. I'm going to let myself off the hook (have a mild pity party for a bit--not long) and reset things!

Also it only takes a couple of days of not much exercise for me to feel like I'm starting from rock bottom. I must keep this in the forefront of my mind. I guess a solution (and I've tried it from time to time) is to just resolve to do absolutely nothing for days/weeks. I don't really want to learn the long-term consequences of that.

Not fun having a pity party alone it tends to not last as long as when you have somebody else to vent with. LOL I know what you mean though.. nice to take a little break sometimes but also scary to think that we might not go back to what we should be doing. Have a great evening.

Your really brave 2 hrs of groc/sundries shopping - I try to be in and out in 30 minutes. Have a great day.


OhioRaven on 10/02/2014:
I remember my 1st post here. I asked if pushing a shopping cart was considered exercise and someone said YES.

biscottibody59 on 10/02/2014:
I remember it well:-)

Fitday helped!
