(<1800 Cal/Day :: Ex Up To 20% Act :: 84 oz Water)
Weight: 159.5

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150.5 (Jan 2004)
Current BMI=27.4; My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity:
Wed: NordicTrack 30 min 3.4 mi; Clean House 45 min; Jog 12 min/Walk 15 min
Thur: Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (20 min/4.4 mi); Jog 12 min (4-4-4); Walk 25 min

Days 136 & 137 were good.

I'm reincorporating the weight workout after about a four workout break--15 days or so--and yesterday was my first day back at it. I probably could have done without the jog yesterday--battling minor fatigue following the weight workout and the heat, but I'm trying to stay in that groove.

It's not getting much below 80�F (27�C) overnight, making for some hot evenings when I jog. This jag of 100�F heat is supposed to last at least another few days.

Thanks for the encouragement and the fine comments on my breaking that 160 barrier. I can feel like the boy who cried wolf every now and then, but the feeling that a great weight has been lifted by getting past it lingers, a very good thing:-)

Plan for today: Jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

Day 135 was good.

Whoop! There it is! ----> 159.5 <---- and not too soon! This is bigger than anything, because the 160s have been my bugaboo like nothing else. I'm breathing a sigh of relief. I won't be weighing again until Tuesday. I hope for no more train wrecks involving one-sixty-something!

Plan for today: Ntrk, jog, walk

Have a lovely day!

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:-)

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!

Day 133 was good. I didn't do a Ntrk workout, but the longer jog felt very good and I was able to push myself a little.

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


maria777 on 07/10/2006:
Good for you on the jogging! I think it helps to vary our workouts sometimes!


borntocry on 07/11/2006:
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!

biscottibody, I don't think I ever noticed before that you are in Texas! Howdy, neighbor! Well, sort of. We have that New Mexico in between. I'm in Arizona. I like to know where everyone is. You're doing great!

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!!

For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice. --John Burroughs

For my activity: A very short walk

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:-)

Plan for today: NTrk, walk, jog
