Jeanne's Two Laws of Chocolate: If there is no chocolate in the house, there is too little; some must be purchased. If there is chocolate in the house, there is too much; it must be consumed.

For my activity lately:
Mon 8.1: Jog 20 min (12-8)/Walk 15 min
Tues 8.2: Jog 20 min/Walk 20 min

There is no way in hell I'm going any farther up! It seems I've been holding at about 165 (give or take) with no effort one way or the other. Today, however, 167ish is just not for real. I feel very unfit despite jogging consistently. I did my measurements 7.19 and since last October, I'm up about 5 inches overall. Yuk!

I have a pair of Size 10 shorts (and I use that size loosely--haha--I'd say they're actually 12s if I were sizing them myself!). I'd like to be able to wear them comfortably in the near term. Well, I can get into them and even zip and button them, but they're not comfy.

On the jogging and shoes: I had some shoes (Saucony) that were just not the greatest (okay for long walks) after I had worn them a few times. I quit wearing them and switched to really an even worse pair for me. Then I kept meaning to go get a pair of my old standby Brooks. Dragged my feet and went back to the old Sauconys temporarily. Well, I developed this funny ankle thing. Not painful--even when jogging, but sort of like something shifts and clicks on the outside every now and then. Doesn't do the clicking thing while I'm jogging. It's not swollen. It's not getting any worse either. I've never even sprained my ankle.

So I'm just watching it and have gotten a pair of my old standbys. I'm only jogging 2 days in a row as of late. Especially since I feel like crap at this weight. Unfit crap! July 25th marked 3 years since I started jogging. Gotta lose some of this!

I don't know how it got to be August (or July) for crying out loud.

Cheers to you all!

Hi biscottibody,

Love your Laws of Chocolate. So true!

Shoes can be tricky. I read somewhere that one should change one's running shoes regularly and mine are starting to come apart a little so I'll probably have to do that soon. I'm worried it could throw me off (probably because I'm always looking for any excuse to laze around instead!).

My weight has been going up too and it's very disheartening. But we'll keep at it!


geevee on 08/03/2005:
It's been a long time, Biscotti. It's good to hear from you again. I share the same predicament that you do, that of wallowing at the same weight for months on end. I'm not starting my 8th month of going nowhere. I sure would like to know how to leave this plateau and make some progress again. Maybe someone out there has the key to help us.


Soon2BThin on 08/03/2005:
I know that you know how important a good pair of shoes is to your activity. And I haven't a clue what is happening with your ankle. I hope things get better. Oh, and those shorts, I understand the thing with the size---why can't they all go by the same measurements or something? I'm doing well this week. So come on and join me, okay? You can do it!

I'm down 1.5 pounds on my weigh-in last week. I forgot to weigh last Tuesday, so I did it last Friday morning. I've been keeping my food diary in my little notebook, but not using Fitday. Until this past Tuesday.

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times; I feel much better doing weight training regularly than not! Yesterday's was the first since April 29th. My legs are sore, but I already feel energized. If you're in your 30s and up, I highly recommend regular weight training.

I skipped the 12-min test knowing it would just be worse than the last. So I've rescheduled it.

Cheers to you all!

You know what Biscottibody ... while I was out walking on my lunch hour, a profound thought entered my beautiful mind. I wondered at the time who it was meant to be shared with. Guess what kid, you're the winner: "Even if you're walking backwards, as long as you're walking in the right direction, you'll get where you're trying to go."

This journey definitely gets tough and we definitely take all kinds of stops and turns along the way but, just keep going. Just keep going. cu


Jennifer68 on 06/02/2005:
I was wondering where ya were! Lol, welcome back to the fold you little lost sheep! Glad you realized you were slipping!~ its so much easier with your sisters helping to move you along the track. When I don't want to budge they get all pushy and make me move my rump. Thank God they do!!! Come on~ lets go. We have bodies to make gorgeous. Jen

Didja miss me? No, well I wouldn't have been very inspirational anyway. My commitment has been for sh*t lately. I have been cutting back on my jogging--self-imposed. I did have some knee pain (after removing some heel inserts I was trying out) for a couple of days that led up to the cutting back. I just didn't feel so out of it missing a couple days here and there. And my weight is up, so it all adds up.

I want to look forward to weighing less, but the focus has been hard to come by. So I'm going to try once again. It's a good day--June 1st and all that jazz.

So here's to commitment and pushing for the next goal. Once again:-)

I wondered what happened to you Biscotti and am glad you're back. Ahhh, it's not easy staying on task all the time and it's SO easy to go astray.

BTW, I have one of my sons subscribing to Real Age now after I sent him a copy of one that was pertinent to him. He reads it diligently.

Regarding being up in weight, the last time I saw my goal of 125 was in Jan. and right after I stopped swimming that month, you know what happened! I haven't seen 125 since! It's insidious how the weight creeps up. Finally it occurred to me that I was regaining a pound a month by not swimming, working out and doing yoga. That's 12 lbs. a year. In no time at all I'd be back where I started, so I'm approaching my "re-entry" into the world of health with a zeal! Maybe that will help.


Soon2BThin on 06/01/2005:
Welcome back! Good to see you here again. We just keep plugging away, don't we? But, at least, we never give up. It looks to me like you were still doing some pretty good exercise though. Well, have a good Thursday!

Okay, my food vacation is just about over. Oh, maybe I said that before--it matters not. I'm not happy about my body and the aging process. Drastic measures may be required to avoid even more drastic increases in adipose tissue:-) Really though, it's not funny anymore.

My weight is down this week and I'm going back to weighing at least once/week. Didn't do measurements today or last week.

Thurs 5.5: Jog 21 min (4-2-4-2-6-3)/Walk 15 min

I am making a concerted effort to get faster, which will improve my 12-min test. One book I have refrains from using the word jogging--instead it is called "fitness running," which is what I'm in this for. I have no intention of racing, but I would like to get faster and fitter.

As for the eating--it's been a big feast for me. My exercise is good, but my eating is way out of control. I make no promises, but I do have a new goal weight/date.

I didn't measure this week. Will do so on Tuesday. Next weigh-in will be June 7th.

Cheers to you all!
