For Tuesday's weigh-in, I'm up a bit less than a pound.

It was around 80degF yesterday, but we have freezing rain coming later tonight with another round on the weekend. There is snow forecast toward the end of the event, but I doubt we'll get much if any.

I haven't gotten to the NordicTrack--yet. I'm behind on my boot camp, but will get it in later today--for sure. How did it get to be Thursday already:-)

80 degrees and then snow and freezing rain forecast?? We have had consistent cold and drizzle here but our snows will be coming. All that yard work you've been doing is great exercise, good going!

biscottibody59 on 12/06/2013:
Thanks--I usually just mulch the leaves with the mower, but I thought one year of really getting it cleaned up might benefit the lawn. I still have a bit to go. We'll see!

I got my boot camp done yesterday--it's such a good workout for me at this time--just challenging enough.

My NordicTrack (skier) has been mostly mothballed the last year or more. I'm going to get back on it--I hope today--it's a unique workout. I don't do arms the whole time--maybe one day. Coordination isn't the issue--it's a ridiculously difficult workout (for me) to use both arms and legs.

I keep it at the second notch of elevation (it has 4 or 5). It has to be changed manually, so I just leave it there. It's good cardio--good for intervals of course--and it's excellent for my legs.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate tomorrow!

I sure envy your exercise. It sounds like such a lot! I'm lucky if I can get a 45 minute walk in and then I'm pretty much beat for the day. Keep it going! And thanks for all your commenting to me. I was thinking the other day, I wonder what happened to Crittermama and Pastagal and so many others. Do you remember when we even had some men on here? I miss the good old days (sign of aging, hah)

I didn't get in that last boot camp above--later today I suspect I'll be able to get it in. My quads were a little too sore (still) yesterday. I could've done it, but I felt a little more recovery was important.

We had a bit of freezing rain--trees that didn't lose their leaves already have some sagging limbs. Overall though it's not too bad--cold, but no wind--roads are fine!

Squats are my friend:-) I remember when I planned to start jogging again around '02, I focused on strengthening my quads to prepare my knees and it worked great. For the first time in a long time I feel like I'm getting my quads back--not sure if I'll get back to that previous level anytime soon though.

I'd love to get back to jogging 3-4 days/week, but I think that's quite a ways away--body fat AND weight will have to be much lower this time around. For now these small steps are encouraging!

I also did a little jogging in place after each set of lunges. I can't tell you how good I felt after getting that workout done. Got it done, it didn't take long and as the day wore on I felt like I'd cleared out all kinds of cobwebs from my body:-)

I increased my range of motion on the squats, but I have to be a little more on the ball to retain form. That makes it challenging here at the outset of getting back into some wt trng. I hope to keep up with this every other day for about three weeks and then re-incorporate my usual wt trng on a different schedule. I'm only mildly sore today, which is good because I don't particularly like overdoing things when I've been out of the game for a couple of months (this time).

I'm not back 100% foodwise. Thanks for all your support/comments on my previous entry--I appreciate your thoughts!

For the JFK Commemoration tomorrow--the official title of the big Dallas thing is called "The 50th," there's a newish station that's going to be going at it for 12 hours and will stream it live. Here's the link: http://www.ktxdtv.com/. All the other stations are streaming live too, but this new station (available in several cities in Texas) has recruited local retired journalists and may actually have some stuff that's interesting.

There's also a show that comes on some PBS stations called McCuistion (produced in Dallas) that has been doing a ton of shows with JFK content. Lots of pertinent interviews. All shows are available online for free--I think there's a youtube channel for the show. (May only be available in the US.)

I was a couple months away from turning 5 years old. I very much remember seeing Lee Harvey Oswald being shot by Jack Ruby--the iconic film footage. I don't think it meant much to me at the time--just a memory. I wasn't in nursery school (precursor to daycare), so I was at home.

I am regrouping today. Wednesday turned out to be an awful day--stressful. I then barely slept. A bit too much chocolate eaten earlier in the evening didn't help. My "head" reaction to an earlier phone call was swift and (to me) irrational. I didn't even take the call--the msg was enough. I don't talk to this person if I can help it.

As Thursday wore on I was fine despite little sleep. (A little reg coffee plus decaf probably helped.) It was good that I'd slept well Tuesday night. I bounced back quickly. However, I continued to abandon my food plans.

That's where I'm at. I intend to get right back into my plan again at full force tomorrow. The takeaway is that the two days I was on plan (except for the butter on the popcorn--really pretty minor) were very positive. Among other things, my sleep was noticeably GREAT during those two days, and that's worth NEARLY everything! It's the right direction:-)

I hope things are going better now Biscotti. Thanks for your recommendation on the Vitamin D too. I do take quite a few supplements and I already have it in the house, I will definitely try it if I'm getting down again,

Good work sticking to plant based this week! I've become friendly with a vegan and I've been questioning her about her diet. She says she's never found it difficult, but she doesn't avoid added fats and oils. I know how difficult it is to do both, so kudos!

For today's weigh-in, I'm down a pound. I stayed within the eating guidelines for yesterday. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. One day down, three to go. Plan is to NOT go overboard (with food) after that, but assess as I go--mix it up. I assume I'll lose weight. I assume I'll feel fitter soon. Takes time:-)

My usual coffee place has free coffee all week. I went ahead and indulged yesterday, but will try to stay away 'til Friday. I'm going to try to do the no-added fat plant-based diet today through Thursday.

I made a very nice pot of blackeyed pea soup yesterday. I happened to have some out of date peas, but wanted to see if they just needed to be soaked. Normally blackeyed peas don't need to be soaked before cooking like other beans. They cooked just fine.

What is so bad about coffee? Thanks for the documentary of the Black Eyed Pea.

Coming up--13 years since I logged on here--it was 11.10.2000--I kinda fell off a couple times before starting to post on a regular basis in 2001, but that was the first day for me! (And if you're out there Kyrin--give us a shout!)

I had the goal of no coffee at all for October--it went so-so. I had only decaf most of the month. I didn't have any of either (decaf or regular) for about four days in a row and then for a few random days at the end of the month.

On Tuesday I drank the most regular coffee as I have in many months. I felt good--none of the effects I've had in the past. I have no intention of making it a regular habit again, but it's good to know I can tolerate it if I decide to have REAL coffee once in awhile in the future. I hope to be drinking no coffee at all the rest of this month. It's much easier when I don't keep a supply at home.

I am going to try to resume the goal of at least an hour of some kind of cardio daily. My endurance hasn't sucked this bad ever. I can't have imagined it being this bad, but at least I'm able to do what I need to do to rectify it all. IOW I'm not injured, I don't have an excuse and I could definitely be the poster child for "Use It Or Lose It."

EVERYTHING is better for me, too, when i have less coffee. my skin in particular gets so much better. tea doesn't seem to affect me like the coffee does. it's so amazing how well my skin clears. just for this reason, i have been limiting coffee a lot. i still have a little now & then, but i am doing much better. :)

my skin is actually perfect without coffee.

Thanks for your comment and info. I guess we are the "oldest" members here. I started in April of 2000 so I have a few months on you. Perseverence (sp?) is our middle name. (Too bad I don't know how to spell it, haha) I know what you mean about using it before we lose it, I tell myself all the time I'd better get out there and exercise before something else breaks down on this old body. Getting old is not for sissies! I can't relate to the coffee thing though, I never aquired the taste. Good luck with that. Have a great weekend!
