Hola BB =) Thanks for checking out the BMR thing. This is where I got my info from:

Where can you find your BMR? > http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/calrmr.htm > http://health.discovery.com/tools/calculators/basal/basal.html > > Harris Benedict Formula To determine your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR by the appropriate activity factor, as follows: > > If you are sedentary (little or no exercise) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.2 If you are lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.375 If you are moderatetely active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.55 > > If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.725 If you are extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.9

Day 156 was good.

I have been fighting some flavor of gnat on my jog. They're in swarms and before I know it I've breathed one in. I've gotten at least one lodged in my throat per jog for the last 6 or 8 jogs. Then I cough them up--and spit them out. Isn't that a pretty picture--someone who already looks like a nutcase jogging in the heat, then they sound like they're choking.

Though I usually meet up with a few walkers and other exercisers along my way, I've been lucky that no one is usually "right there" when I've breathed in a gnat. Maybe I shouldn't fight them and consider them to be a good source of protein:-) I swear they're worse this year, perhaps because of the drought.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

Hehehehe i hate it when that happens, there is always a part of me that believes they will be alive in my stomach and keep growing and multiplying there lol, so i think its better to rather spit them out....just to be safe lol!


WorkingIt on 08/03/2006:
LOL we have the same problem with gnats around here...IN the office! UGH..such horrible pests they are =)


moody on 08/03/2006:
Thanks for you comment...You're right..it isn't anybody's business except mine!!As for the snacks, I used to just buy one and that would be it. But for some unknown reason I have just been out of control lately(the past couple of months) and eating things in amounts I never have...I know the best thing is to not even have them in the house...I have a 16 year old son who is in great physical condition and so I could buy them for him, but I know myself well enough to know that I would end up sneaking them. Better to not have them around:period.

Also, whats a maccaroon?? is it a sweet???

Day 155 was good.

Weight's the same. Measurements overall are down ever so slightly. I gained a quarter-inch in my calf--moo! I lost a quarter-inch in my abdomen. Since February 28th I'm down 12.5 pounds. My energy level is very much improved since then, but other than that and being able to get into more of my clothes, I don't feel drastically different. Probably because I've been down this road before. Must push forward focusing ahead toward 140:-)

I haven't had to mow in over a month owing to very little to no rain. It's nearly pointless (and wasteful) to water except for the foundation and a little of everything else here and there. It's really bad!

Time to keep pressing on with better food choices and lower calories overall. If I don't do so, I'll be back in the dreaded and stifling 160s--my own personal slasher movie, THE 160s! Eeeeeeeeeek!

Plan for today: NTrk, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

I wanted to thank you for your words of encouragement..they mean more to me than I can say...I am scared of seeing what my actual measurements are!! I'm serious! I do have a tape measure up in my dresser drawer so maybe tomorrow morning I will see where I am at. Thanks again..any advice is more than welcome!


liza36 on 08/02/2006:
I saw the comment you made to BTC about the nasty biscuit huge truck sale...it made me laugh because it's so true. I'd love one bite of an authentic french pastry over any nasty biscuit anyday.


borntocry on 08/02/2006:
Well I'll send you guys some authentic French pastries in return for a truckload of biscuits, haha!

The worst is when it actually costs less to get more of something. My husband actually experienced this at a fast food place in America. Their super-sized pop was cheaper than the size below - not just better value, but actually cheaper! He and his friends practically made themselves sick on pop.

Here in France it's the complete opposite. Buying things in bulk can actually work out to be more expensive than buying them singly. We've noticed this with all kinds of products, not just food. For instance, a pack of eight batteries costs more than double the price of a pack of four. So why would anyone buy the eight-pack instead of two four-packs? Beats me.

I actually took a route (with a few more challenging hills) on my jog that I hadn't taken in a long time. Still in the 90s though tempwise, but I held my own. I'm feeling very close to where I was about a year ago with the jogging. Gotta hang onto it and continue progressing!

No, when I know I've gone over on points, I just stop counting. I really did enjoy my "eating" day though so all was not lost. I had all good things I really like even though junky. It's out of my system now. Normally, I just keep track in my head not on paper. It works for me and I think I keep good track that way. I have a good head for numbers. Nothing else though, heh. You're doing great!

Calories were too high! I did two sets of squats on the circuit day before yesterday, so I had some lingering fatigue in my thighs just as I was going out to jog. And it was still 90�F at 8:30 p.m.--lovely, but it was breezy! I pressed on and finished.

geevee on 07/28/2006:
Consistency is THE key, I think. I didn't start losing weight again until I stopped giving myself "free" days which would ruin all of my good work. At least for me, I HAVE TO be on track SEVEN days a week or I don't lose. It's that simple.

We must have a similar body build because I've always hidden my weight very well. I have broad shoulders too and muscular legs, the kind people have always been prompted to ask me if I was a ballet dancer! I don't have a scanner either.


Becca27 on 07/26/2006:
Hi! - Congrats on the weight loss, by the way...

I was introduced to yoga at my club a few years ago and took classes there for quite a while. I got really into it and convinced my husband to try it at home - since he doesn't belong to my gym. He had been complaining about lower back pain and overall joint aches. He plays basketball, volleyball and he's a competetive sprinter. I bought a dvd "Power Yoga" by Bryan Kest and he started doing it at home about 2 years ago. Eventually, I fell out of the habit but he has been committed to his practices ever since. He has Brian Baptiste and Rodney Yee, also. I recently decided to add yoga back into my own exercise routine because I acknowledge the wonderful health benefits. For now, I'm too "out of practice" to show my face at a gym class but I'm committed to doing it here, for now. I will find out the names of some good beginner DVD's to recommend to you. - Right now, I need to run but I will get back to you will exact titles!


inmorning on 07/26/2006:
Cute quote, I have a few of those, "Life is too short to..." of my own as well. But then, don't we all? Have a great day.

borntocry on 07/27/2006:
Hi biscotti,

Thank you so much for your comment on my last entry. You were the only person who was even willing to consider the possibility of going back to smoking to put my condition in remission. I know it may sound like a bad and even absurd decision, but there are many other people who have done it and many of them see it as a choice between lung cancer in thirty years or colon cancer in ten. I have decided against it for now, but I gave it a lot of thought and if I were to change my mind, I would only try it in a very controlled fashion and only until I went into remission (apparently it has no effect in maintaining remission). But for now, I'm trying nicotine gum instead!

I just read your comment to me about the 88 y/o woman doing the triathon...I hope that is all of us one day LOL
