Wisdom too often never comes, and so one ought not to reject it merely because it comes late. --Justice Felix Frankfurter

For my activity: Driving 5.5 hrs

Day 60 was just okay. I didn't get any of my planned activities done. Weeding can always wait as far as I'm concerned:-)

I ate a very nice small hot fudge sundae from the same place I get my FF milk. I ordered it with chocolate chip ice cream--one scoop with toasted pecans--I don't dare keep a whole container of this in my freezer--mmmmm-good!

Plan for today: Circuit workout, walk.

Have a lovely day!

Oh....I LOVE a hot fudge sundae! YUM, YUM!

Toasted pecans....YUM, YUM, YUM!!!

I have to buy goodies in snack size, too...cause if I get the large size I'll think I can have that, too!

Have a good evening!

Day 59 was good. Didn't get in the jog/walk, but I did move a little furniture, which included a quite a bit of vacuuming too. Change is good;-)

Have a lovely day!

For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (31 min/7.2 mi)

Day 58 was good. Only did 1 out of 3 activities--but I did a little more on the Airdyne.

I had to talk myself into doing my Circuit workout, because I knew I'd have to do it today or tomorrow. The jog can always wait a day or two at this point since I'm still OVERWEIGHT, BMI-wise. I hope to have all those lovely days of non-OVERWEIGHT in the future to jog or whatever. Believe it or not I can actually see myself there! Not carrying around excess baggage and not seeing those "midriff dimples"--only one on each side at this point--Hah!

Plan for today: Mowing, jog, walk.

Have a lovely day!

For my activity: Walk 35 min

Day 57 was good. I only did my walk.

Today I'm down on my weigh-in. On my measurements I'm down a whopping 3+ inches--woo-hoo!

I may've figured out the source my calf fatigue while jogging. It's the calf raises. I increased the reps along with increasing the weight and it dawned on me that it may be too much. So I'm going to decrease the reps from 85 (which I tolerate--not overly tired or sore) to about 30. Something just to work them. I should know after a couple of jogs if this solves my problem.

Plan for today: Circuit workout, jog, walk.

Have a lovely day!

For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (20 min/4.8 mi); Walk 10 min

Day 55 was good. I "skipped" my jog.

I'm just not back up to where I was several months ago when I could run out the door just about whenever I wanted. It is true though that I'm moderating myself jogging-wise; I don't want to overdo it. This time though I'm doing more weight workouts/week than I was those few months ago. It is more fun to just run out the door than it is to lift weights, but the results will keep me stronger in the long run. I'd hate to get injured from overdoing it in any area and then be out of commission!

Plan for today: NTrk, jog/walk.

Have a lovely day!

For my activity: NordicTrack 41 min/4.5 mi

Day 54 was good. I only did one out of three planned activities.

I'm down on my weigh-in. Let's see . . . I haven't been 163.0 since 9.30.05, 162 since 2.14.05, 161 since 2.19.05, 160 since 3.17.05, 159 since 4.5.03, so here I go! Down, down, down!

159 is as far as I'll look right now. But here are the milestones back to my low (these are the LAST times I was at these weights):

158 :: 12.13.04
157 :: 10.3.04
156 :: 9.24.04
155 :: 8.15.04
154 :: 5.28.04

For my activity: Jog 20 min (14-6)/Walk 30 min; NordicTrack 22 min/2.2 mi

Day 53 was good.

Plan for today: NTrk, walk and possibly some yard work.

I had a weird thing happen (that has never happened) with my dreams. The first one was like a continuation of a dream from a few weeks ago. I was starting some kind of basic training thing and I had lost my backpack. This continued last night. I still hadn't found my backpack and I was just going to bail on the whole basic training concept. So I was really dragging my feet to get back to the situation and tell the leader that I was quitting. Then I woke up, went back to sleep eventually and the dream continued where I found that I was in the majority of people who had bailed. We "bailers" ended up in an elite group--I don't know what happened to the others. Maybe it will continue next week--haha!

Have a lovely day!

Day 52 was good. Didn't get in my jog, but I did just a little more on the Airdyne. I actually found myself in a little "zone" during my second set of ab exercises--woo-hoo!

Plan for today: NTrk, walk/jog.

Day 51 was good. I actually got a good night's sleep for a change. I'd like to make that a habit. It takes an alignment of several things, not the least of which is clearing my mind. But it's worth it.

Plan for today: Circuit workout and jog later.

Have a lovely day!

Hi biscotti,

Glad to see things are going well for you. That graph you posted of your weight change is pretty similar to the one I've charted for myself using Excel. Only I've stopped maintaining it recently because it's so upsetting to see the huge peak I'm riding at the moment!

Thanks for the comment you left me. I'm not sure how well a purely vegetarian restaurant would go down with my French co-workers. While requesting that I choose the place, one of them nevertheless warned me that he was reserving the right to veto if I chose something too health-oriented!

And regarding people making comments to us when we're running, I do feel that one can pretty much always take them as compliments, because even when they're clearly insults I'm sure they're at least partly inspired by a certain degree of envy! At least I know that in my former life I always pretended to have nothing but scorn and disdain for joggers, yet secretly I wished I could be so fit!


garlic on 04/19/2006:
Hi Biscotti!! Thanks for your comments. Hey, between the two of us, we make one perfect person!! Me with the food and you with the exercise!!! Anyway, I hope to get the exercise bug soon. But I guess I'll focus on the butt first. I'm thinking tomorrow but I'm scared to death!!!


liza36 on 04/19/2006:
Your graph from the other day is such a great visual of where you are. Seeing it go down must be very exciting.

Your comment to me did strick a cord. I can't change this past week, I just have to pick up where I am today and move forward. Very good advice. I tend to lament too much about what I should have done, etc. and be down on myself for not doing it. Gotta stop that and focus on what I'm going to do today to make it closer to my goals. Thanks for your support!
