Sleep: 8 hrs

Water: 34 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne

BMI: 26.3 (Still Overweight) :: 24.9--143# = Normal Weight

Body Fat %:
8.12.14 :: 33.8%; 9.8.14 :: 33.9% :: 11.18 tbd
(first goal = 30%; second goal = 24%)

I am amazed at your routines. You are an inspiration what you do would kill me. LOL Keep up the good job.

biscottibody59 on 11/08/2014:
Thanks--but I'm actually in the worst shape I've been in since about age 40 (I'm 55).

Anyone can do wt trng!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/09/2014:
ohhh how I miss weight training...the best exercise to shape your body. honestly, if there is one most important exercise for making your body look nice in and out of clothing, it's weights.

biscottibody59 on 11/09/2014:
Vanity's down on the list for me of late. I'm just wanting to establish a routine I can live with so I can maintain lean muscle, keep my bones healthy and strong and have a strong immune system for the rest of my life.

I hear you though:-)

I guess if it takes baby (embryonic even--haha) steps, I will commit to wt training again. If I fall off, I'll try to get back on again quickly rather than putting it out of my mind. If all I can do is a minimal workout, well I'll just have to accept that. That's that. Not doing anything for weeks is just about as bad for me as never doing anything.

Exercise: Nothing

Sleep: 6.5 hrs

Water: 34 oz

Baby steps is the best way to start sometimes. Good Luck Have a great evening.

It is cool - will have to dig up some heavier clothes soon. I seem to be refusing to go there yet. Have a great evening.

Congrats you are certainly working your program well. Have a great rainy day. I call it liquid sunshine.

(Short Challenges :: Wt Trng :: Pre-Bkfst Cardio)
Weight: 153.0

My 5-Day Challenge (W-Th-F-Sa-Su): 1) No-added-fat veg only, including blackeyed peas, beans and greens and up to three fruit svgs and no more than .5 oz nuts or seeds per day; 2) Water--at least 68 oz; 3) At least 45 min purposeful cardio daily.

Day 1: Made all goals. (Particulars on previous entry.)

Day 2: I did well--didn't quite hit the cardio goal or the water goal. (Particulars on previous entry.)

Day 3: No goals met. (Particulars on previous entry.)

Day 4 & 5: All goals died on the vine, though today is still Day 5, so I may be able to pull something out worth counting as a win:-) I didn't do too badly on water yesterday. *** UPDATE 11.3 *** Nothing to write home about--no goals met for Day 5.

These short challenges always yield some lessons for me. I know I'm on the right track with the challenge goal food. The one thing I badly need is some wt trng--I won't go on about it, but if you read me, you know how I feel about it. My age 55 body (such as it is) bears no resemblance to me at any age of the last 40 years ending in a "5." I better stop before I begin to whine any more than that.

I had another entry prepared, but it kinda goes off on a couple of my pet tangents, so this will have to suffice for now:-)

Like a friend's outgoing VM msg used to say simply, "You know what to do!"

Day 2: I did well--didn't quite hit the cardio goal or the water goal. (Particulars on previous entry.)

Day 3: No goals met. I did well on my food--apple, oats, a little peanut butter (just nuts, nothing added) on the apple, quinoa, tomatoes, onions, beets--until I had a chance to go out for pizza. I haven't had pizza in forever, so I indulged. It can be a big trigger for giving up on it all for me, but I don't anticipate that happening today. I need to see the walls of a grocery store pretty badly, so I'll get some fruits (for one) that I hope can help derail any thought of going off track again today.

Pizza is a big one for me also. Better days ahead. Have a great day.

Oh, pizza sounds so good! We had some 2 or 3 weeks ago and it was amazing. Glad you enjoyed the indulgence :)

Day 2: I did well--didn't quite hit the cardio goal or the water goal. I've been nursing a kinky shoulder, so it's just as well. Had red quinoa, oats, beets, tomatoes, onions, apple and some raspberry jam (no HFCS--only sugar). The jam's not ideal, but it hit the spot with a little red quinoa. I had some sunflower seeds--still have some left from the 1 oz I measured out on Day 1. As for the water--I didn't feel any more was necessary with the amount of water in what I'm already eating.

Day 1: Made all goals. Had plain sunflower seeds--no hulls--maybe 2T. Tomatoes, WW pasta, sweetpotato, broccoli. Also some oats, a few whole beets (canned) for snack, a little sauerkraut, half of an apple. Not necessarily in that order--haha!

I used to write down my food for a number of years. I have quite a few little notebooks with it all. I counted calories/activity on fitday.com--a free site. I would transfer bits of that info to my diary here.

I haven't done any of that for years. I don't see me going back to counting calories for any length of time. Writing my food down, however, is very instructional for me. There are studies that show that just that simple act can help someone lose weight. I just find it interesting to review a little of it from time to time:-)

skinnygrlwithin on 10/30/2014:
It definitely helps you to see what you're eating... I think it prevents you from over eating when you have to start writing everything down.

biscottibody59 on 10/30/2014:
Actually for me it was just the writing it down. I might or might not review what I actually ate. I'm not one who thinks they can count calories accurately in my head, so fitday came in handy for me.


OhioRaven on 10/30/2014:
I make a food journal every day, on my phone app. And then transfer that to the DD.


puddles on 10/30/2014:
I have also all my food entries from past years. I find some good information in there. I always noted in the side margins things that did not work and things that did work. They now prove to be very useful. Have a great day.
