For my activity: Talking on the phone abt 5 hrs

Day 90 was okay.

Since I did just about nothing else I counted the phone call that derailed my other plans. It's amazing the things that Fitday lists in calories burned. Of course if I had done my regular planned stuff I wouldn't have counted it, but I had nothing else. Kind of a cop-out I suppose.

Plan for today: Circuit workout and walk

Have a lovely day!

Day 89 was good. Not below 1800 though.

I'm down on my weigh-in. I wasn't going to weigh-in on Saturdays for the foreseeable future, but I'm ready to be below 160. This is getting old. Really old. I'm just going to do what I have to do to get there and stay there.

Hi BB,

Following my original diet that got me down in weight is what I've been doing recently, EXCEPT for the MNAY lapses. The lapses are what's new in the equation. You know I simply don't eat processed food, especially hot dogs, but in my mind where the pleasure center resides is the memory of those footlong kosher hot dogs from high school which was awakened when I saw Hebrew National on sale. There I was with the package in hand. I think these were the first hot dogs I've eaten in a few years. At only 50 cal. each I couldn't resist. There are only two left. I don't plan to restock before the sale ends either!

As for not eating in the morning, this goes back to elementary school when my mother never got up in the morning so I never knew what it was like to start off the day with food. I normally don't eat before noon. I just don't think about food in the morning and am rarely hungry. To me it's simply a matter of rearranging one's schedule. I sure make up for it in the evening!

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else. --Emily Dickinson

For my activity: NordicTrack (40 min/4.6 mi)

Day 88 was good. Didn't take a walk or go on a jog.

I've only had 7 days out of the last 28 with calories below 2000--according to Fitday. So having 2 days in a row of below 1800 makes me think I can get/stay in a better groove. It isn't that hard! Yeah right!

Plan for today: NTrk, walk, maybe a jog

Hey, here's another study about sleep (lack of) and weight gain, this time in women specifically. The interesting thing about this one is "it had been suggested previously that people who sleep less compensate by eating more, but analysis of the data found that they ate less. The scientists also discounted physical activity as a reason to explain why women who slept less weighed more." Here's the whole story: More Sleep May Help Women Fight Obesity.

Have a lovely day!

Sat: Driving 2 hrs
Sun: Shopping with cart 2 hrs; Mowing/Weedeating/Clean-up abt 5 hours
Mon: Weeding/Trimming 30 min
Tues: Nothing

Days 81-86 were a mixed bag. Didn't do my regular Tuesday weigh-in.

Friday was hot and I spent the day wishing I lived in a colder climate--just like I do every year--and then hearing myself tell someone I'd never live anywhere else. It happens every year, I spend a day or two getting used to the heat and then I'm good to go!

So that derailed me a little on Friday. I did some yard work (it felt productive). I finally found some shorts in sz 12 that I like but I can use them for knockaround ones--I always seem to be searching for something that's comfy, presentable and unratty--so I bought 2 pair. Then I actually found a "nice" pair of shorts that I could stand and they fit--woo-hoo! They're 12s too, but they're not the same fabric, so they're not going to stretch out a size like the others.

I'm very close to where I want to be. I keep finding monkey wrenches to throw into my plan and drag me back to some starting line. I also realized that since I recommitted myself back in February that I haven't slid back all that much. So it could be worse. (And it could definitely be better!)

Have a lovely day!

You phrased the problem so well with "monkey wrenches". That is exactly what I was thinking this morning.

The only good part for me after recommitting in January is that at least I haven't done more damage. However, containing the damage is not enough and not what I had in mind.

Day 80 was good.

I'm quite behind on my jogging goal (from the beginning of the month), but I'm going to try to go today and see how it feels. I got a good night's sleep and I don't feel quite as "draggy" as I had this past week.

Plan for today: NTrk, walk, maybe a jog

Day 79 was good.

My calories for yesterday were a bit too high, but I'm working on that already today. Today is my 80th day at this and one thing I've noticed is that I can't remember the last time I woke up with a stiff neck or feeling that I turned my neck funny and had a twinge in my shoulder/neck. I attribute this to doing the weight work more in the last few months than in all of the last few years. In fact I've done at least one or two circuit workouts per week since last October. I think that's a pretty good payoff!

Plan for today: Circuit workout at least

Have a lovely day!

I know I have overdone exercise before and had to lay off of it for a little while and then get back into it. I hope you neck feels much better soon! But it sure does look like you are doing real good with your exercise!

Hope you have a fantastic afternoon!

Sat: Mow abt 1 hr/Clean-up 30 min; Walk 10 min

Days 73, 74, 75 & 76 are over. Good.

I didn't do a whole lot of activity except for yesterday. That's about it. Still at it--not much to add. As far as food choices go--not great, still counting, but when I let alot of little things get to me or I get bored, good choices go downhill.

Plan for today: NTrk at least. Not committing to anything else right now.

Have a lovely day!

Yep, I know what you mean about good choices...it is so easy for us to allow stress to cause us to overeat or eat things we usually wouldn't. But...the choice 'is' ours! I'm going to 'try' to stay away from raisin bread for a while...not gonna promise though, but gonna try!

Hope you have a good afternoon....Big Smile!

Well...all I did was walk around at the farmers' market after taking my Mom to the dr.

I also cooked dinner/supper.

That was about it...I haven't been to the gym in a while...I love to walk outside when the weather permits.

Looks like you did get in some real good exercise!

Have a good evening!
