Day 134 was good.

I don't have a "159" to report, though if I had taken the time to do my measurements, they'd probably be down; shorts are a bit looser. I just have to keep persevering and be content today that sticking to my program most of the time is its own reward:-)

Plan for today: Jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

I do agree with what you wrote 'sticking to my program most of the time is its own reward'...and I definitely think measurements are much more important indicator of progress than a silly scale number!

Hey! I noticed that you doubled your jogging time! That's excellent! Great work! Before you know it, you'll have that jog up to 20 min! Are you running outdoors or on a treadmill?


inmorning on 07/10/2006:
Thanks for the advice on the shoes. I am going to a mall today and will check it out. I just remember commenting here and journaling in 2002 and you were on that Nordic Track. It would be cool if it had a mileage counter for the past years. I would say you got your money's worth. :~) aloha annastasia

Good for you on the jogging! I think it helps to vary our workouts sometimes!

Hi biscottibody,

Thanks for your comment a while back. I appreciate you taking the time and trouble to go through that Ulcerative Colitis article for me! Wikipedia is such a great resource, isn't it?

It did occur to me that perhaps I overdid the running/racing somewhat recently, but the funny thing is that I've hardly been running at all for the last couple of months or so since I got back from America. So it's odd that I should only start experiencing these symptoms now, but who knows?

And yes, I know what you mean about intimidating doctors with too much insight into one's health conditions. I have a great interest in medical subjects but I try to hide it from my doctors because I know they won't appreciate it one bit!

Life was a funny thing that occurred on the way to the grave. --Quentin Crisp

For my activity: NordicTrack 11 min/1.1 mi; Walk 10 min

Day 129 was good.

I missed the jog and nearly skipped out on it all--I had the worst sinking spell in late afternoon. I did manage to get a few minutes of exercise anyway. I'm doing the "no caffeine" (again) in the afternoon. That coupled with being behind in sleep for the last couple of weeks (I got a solid 8 last night) just about did me in.

Overall I feel much better today. Also, for my June jogging goal of 10 days: I actually jogged 11 days. Assuming I get my weight below 160 this month, I'm sure I'll get in at least 10 days this month.

Plan for today: NTrk, walk, jog

Have a lovely day!

Hi there,

I dont know if the effect is the same for you, but i have found in the past that caffeine, especially in coffee makes me sleepy. I use to drink 2 espressos and it relaxed me like tranquilizers lol. Well i stopped drinking coffee 2 years ago, switched to tea and even though some teas has a little caffeine, its not the same as in coffee. My cellulite is also much less than 2 years ago. Interesting fact: Beauty specialists say that rubbing coffee/caffeine on skin helps cellulite to go away, but drinking it gives you cellulite.

Have a great day and good job on the jogging!!

Day 128 was okay. Didn't get in my planned activity.

I am recommitting to the above plan. Yesterday was pretty much a typical "holiday" sort of day for me. Thinking I would get in much activity was pretty silly:-)

Mon: Walk 15 min
Tues: Mow/Clean-up 2 hrs; Walk 10 min

Days 117-121. I did pretty well with exercise. I weighed in yesterday and until I am below 160, I'm not changing it here. (It's only a pound for crying out loud--but it's pointless going back and forth on here.) I am tracking it in Fitday though!

It is good to know I'm not in the 169 realm I was in when I started the counting of days:-) A small achievement to be sure, but an achievement nevertheless!

geevee on 06/28/2006:
I know what you mean about the pointlessness of recording daily weight fluctuations. However, when I decided as you have, that you wouldn't change my DD weight, I took advantage of that and it wasn't helpful for me and resulted in my gaining more unwanted weight.

There is no way around avoiding a gain if we give ourselves the luxury of ignoring minute gains which on the surface seem meaningless, but in the long run, count.

Keep this in mind.

My weight changes daily, and seldom are there 2-3 days with the same weight. I think this is normal.

Anyway, look how far you've come. My goodness, you've almost lost ten pounds. It's far better being on the cusp of the 150's than the 170's, right?

Keep up the good work.

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save. --Will Rogers

For my activity:
Tues: NordicTrack 30 min/3.5 mi; DogJog 5 min/Walk 20 min
Wed: Walk 15 min
Thurs: Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (31 min/3.2 mi); Walk 30 min

Days 114-116 were a mixed bag.

I started back to my weight training yesterday, which included 2 sets of ab exercises (bicycle crunches (70)--leg lifts (30)--bicycle crunches (70)). That's 280 bicycle crunches in all--woo-hoo! I mention this particular fact, because I thought I wouldn't get through 2 minutes of it, much less the entire thing. The workout didn't aggravate my back, in fact I feel very good today. I missed 5 whole days with a back spasm apparently because I didn't change my shoes before jogging a couple of weeks ago. I can't find anything else to blame it on. Anyway, I was 5 minutes into dragging myself onto my NordicTrack and I decided that I should try my weight workout. I had been feeling so sluggish. In fact more sluggish than I had in a couple of months. And putting butter on my popcorn about every other time is a sure sign that I'm going downhill fast!

One more validation that weight training is essential to me and my well-being at this stage of my life. I had gone 10 days without it--and that's the longest since I recommitted to it. I will say that my attitude during the workout was different. Usually I have to drag myself through it.

Going through a period of time where I simply couldn't do something because of physical ills made me a little hungry for it. I'm glad to say I feel great today--my back isn't an issue at this time. So I guess I can try to concentrate on all my other issues--hahaha!

Plan for today: NTrk; jog/walk

Have a lovely day!

Oh, how wonderful to hear that you are havin no back pain and able to be back into your regular exercise routine that helps you feel good. How uplifting!

Thank you for your sweet comments. My Mother was a Seamstress part of the time when we were growing up. I took home economics also in high school (it was not my cup of tea as I was 'into' learning how to play the piano)...but that is wonderful that you were so gifted in making yourself a dress and understood the interfacing, top stitch, etc. I, too made myself a dress or two and my little sister one, too (which she gave away) when I was a teenager, but I was not into the interfacing, top stitching stuff, it was more make it quick dresses...and I only did it out of necessity.

That is sweet that your Mother made you clothes for so long...wow, the things we are finding out about each other on here, hehehe!

Have a great day!...and watch out for the butter!


smiley2 on 06/23/2006:
Hi there,

Im glad your back are feeling better. I find your theory about running shoes and back spasms really interesting. It may explain my lower back pain when i have been running a lot, since i run with cross training shoes and not proper running shoes. Anyway, i hope you have a great weekend, and please leave the butter on the popcorn! Try that nice butter spray you get in the States! I use to use it on everyting. Think the name is: " I cant believe its butter" spray. It tastes just like real butter and zero calories!

Welnax
