For my activity: NordicTrack 41 min/4.4 mi

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.

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 :)

This is some lifelong struggle! Keep at it. That's all we can do. If we don't, we just get bigger and bigger and bigger!

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!
