I have been writing down my food haphazardly. No Fitday. Tomorrow I go back to the food diary vigilance. I'm sort of teetering between oblivion and "almost in a groove."

I found a site for estimating your life expectancy (www.livingto100.com). I did this on another quiz awhile back and I always seem to come up with about 89 years old. Who can imagine themselves at 89? I just hope gasoline-powered cars are a thing long gone by then:-) Gas went down 14 cents/gallon overnight the other day.

Cheers to you all!

I'm surprised, but I'm down a pound on my weigh-in this week. It must be all the screaming I did during those Homeland Security and FEMA press conferences. Futile outrage, but apparently it burns calories:-) Trying to stay informed isn't all that easy these days. Trying to stay cool, calm and collected apparently isn't either.

My BMI is creeping slowly downward, 27s here I come--haha!

Cheers to you all!

I'd like to whack "Lil Un" and Rove with one of those tree trunks I've been hauling out to the street! Mention one or the other I and I go into a frenzy. If it helps me burn the calories, I'll go for it!

Keep up the excellent work! A lb is great :) Good luck getting to your goals!

I was down this week on my weigh-in. I doubt that will hold, but I'm going to try. I'm not giving up. I'll fill in my exercise in a later entry. It's the same ol' jogging and one day of massive crisis house cleaning. That's probably the only way it could have gotten done as I look back now. Nevertheless the house is less cluttered looking where it counts.

My heart goes out to anyone who has family affected by KATRINA. What am I saying--we're all affected by this incredible humanitarian crisis. I'll stop now--lest I rant!

I heard the Stones' "Gimme Shelter" on the radio last night and I immediately thought of all the victims waiting for water and food for 5 days in New Orleans and Mississippi. Here are the lyrics:

Gimme Shelter

Oh, a storm is threat�ning
My very life today
If I don�t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I�m gonna fade away

War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin�
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost it�s way

War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

The floods is threat�ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I�m gonna fade away

War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

Hi Biscotti!

Good to hear from you! I appreciate your supportive words. Its amazing that a Category 1 storm would cause a power outtage of 8 days! The massive amount of yard work is even more amazing to me. It sure brings back memories of Andrew 13 yrs. ago. At least I'm at the tail end of this mess and can see the end. It's just a matter of time.

I used to be holding on dearly to 127 and now it's moved up to 130!!! This is NOT good! It's interesting how other factors affect one's eating. I'm very upset at this turn of events but am sure that when I finally return to normal I'll go back down. Well, we all think this way, right? but the results are not necessarily what we'd like.

Anyway, I'ml still "aware" and trying. Aren't we all?

Good to see you, Biscottibody!! You're doing great! We just keep plugging along, don't we? We're never giving up, right? Have a good week!

It was still 90�F at 8:30p when I went jogging. There was a breeze here and there, so it wasn't awful.

I must say that getting in some exercise earlier in the day makes a huge difference to how I feel. It really takes alot off of my appetite too. I'm just noticing it as I'm getting back into it. I thought I was entering some new "black hole" where I can't control my eating. I feel I can get back on track somewhat.

July 25th marked 3 years that I had started jogging again. I thought it would be the "be-all/end-all" sort of exercise. It's not--not for me--I think it's because your muscles and body in general get used to something after awhile--you have to shake up the routine. In fact, I had only used the NordicTrack 12 times in the last 5 months--that's 16 out of 115 chances (days). Probably the worst since I started this and I felt it yesterday.

Cheers to you all!

I'm back up from last week's weigh-in. I'm struggling. (I think I need to be here on DDs consistently!) I'm not totally messing up, but as always, I can do better.

I had not been jogging for 11 days (until 8.16) and I kinda missed it. No I realllly missed it. I didn't lose much fitness-wise, in fact a break was good. It's good to know a little break didn't kill me--haha!

I felt like I owed it to myself to see if my ankle situation would improve. It didn't make any difference. It's not aggravated by anything or getting worse or even hurting. It can get a little swollen, but it's not in any specific spot--I can just tell it, in that my shoe may feel a little tight. It's just odd, at least for me. I should get it checked out.

Cheers to you all!

Hey, good to see you here, Biscottibody! I haven't been coming in as much as I used to either. But I am going gangbusters right now. I'm in that zone where you start to see some good results so you really want to keep at it and I'm really pushing myself most days. Right now I'm aiming for getting out of the 160's. I haven't been out of them since July of last year!! I still envy your jog/walks. I haven't tried that yet but I have so many things wrong in my legs and knees and ankles I'm kinda afraid to try. Maybe after I get more of this weight off. Keep up the good work. We can do this, this time, right?


geevee on 08/23/2005:
"Food vacation" - I love it! It wasn't as bad as I had imagined, and now that it's almost over, I'm rather sad that my son won't be here.

As for your ankle, it might be arthritis. You've read about my knee problem, but I also have a foot problem - other leg. It just felt funny, esp. early in the morning when I get up. I described it to mly rheumotologist and he diagnosed arthritis in the foot! I sure hope that is not the problem. It's so annoying!

Anyhoo, it's good to hear from you again.


Bandmom on 08/23/2005:
Thank you! If there is anything you want to know just ask!


BethH on 08/24/2005:
You are correct. I am the same Beth. I was known before as Beth201. Yes I still live in Alaska. LOL I sometimes get to thinking maybe it's time to move. Then I change my mind. LOL Well you better take care of your ankle and get it checked out. Have a great rest of the week. Beth :)
