Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest. --Ashleigh Brilliant

For my activity:
Fri: Walk 20 min
Sat: Nothing

Days 61 & 62.

Let's see, Thursday was the driving/errands day. And Friday I did a few "must do" sorts of things and to make them more palatable I got some sushi and seafood/seaweed salad in between. For Thursday it didn't seem like I drank all that much caffeine, but I didn't sleep until early evening on Friday for a couple of hours. The cumulative sleeplessness threw me into a tailspin. I was sooo tired for a good 2 days. I even laid off the caffeine on Friday except for my morning two cup's worth of coffee. (Sorry if this is really boring, but for someone who used to be able to drink coffee all day and not have much concern, much less alarm, about not getting enough sleep, it's a big deal!)

So I was more behind on sleep than in recent memory. Friday night I got about 6 hours and was pretty much out of commission for Saturday for anything useful. I didn't even try to nap. I got a decent night's sleep finally last night and today I feel like it's worth getting back into some routine. Again, I'm sorry to harp on about sleep, but it's clearly become a huge issue for me in the last year or so. Possibly because of aging, and because I am realizing that I'm not worth crap for anything at all if I don't get enough sleep.

I did weigh myself yesterday, and I was up about a pound, but I'm not going to change it here just yet because I was horribly bloated. I skipped my water all day on Thursday--that probably contributed to the bloat.

Plan for today: NordicTrack, walk

Have a lovely day!

For me, six hours sleep is a good night! I empathize completely with the problem. What bothers me more is waking up so many times during the night and thinking that I haven't fallen asleep yet, and then I'll recall a dream and know that I did sleep, but for how long? The point is, it's a restless night. It's nothing like the wonderful sleep of youth where you might wake up once during the night. Oh, no. It's not to be now.

And then I recently read that more calories are burnt sleeping than awake.

Hope you have a WONDERFUL DAY!!!

I used to drink coffee...I LOVED it...but I mostly only drink water now...unless you count milkshakes or icecream, which I don't think those are 'drinks'....hehehe! Our milkshakes here are more like ice cream anyway....oh I better hush or I'll be going to get one for SURE!!!

Big Smile! Looks like you are doing real well! Have a happy, blessed day!

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!

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

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!
