Today I watched my intake much closer than usual. I planned a little better and didn't get hungry (kiss of death for good choices--they just fly out the window). It's a good exercise. I did about an hour of strenuous cleaning and for my exercise: Jog 20 min/Walk 15 min.

Cheers to you all!

Hey! What is your weight goal? You are being so faithful to the exercise. I'm sure you're firm as all get out. I do good, then eat what I shouldn't as reward, then I can't get back to it. Keep up the good work. I'm proud of you.

The past is not a package one can lay away. --Emily Dickinson

Since last I entered my info I've done just about the same activities in about the same amounts. Jogging/Walking/Carpet Cleaning and general housework. Jogging is still my cornerstone. It's sort of like going on the merry-go-round--I'd love to go again--but unlike the merry-go-round, I can't go again until at least the next day. I so enjoy it! I'm coming up on 2 years since I started back jogging, so I'm still grateful I'm able to continue it.

Anyway . . . those calories are gonna have to come down in some consistent way or I'm gonna be 80 and still chasing my tail. A dog chasing its tail is slightly amusing for a short time, but my doing it
day-in/day-out is just insanity I'm afraid. Garlic's diary says "watching it VERY closely"--I will try that!

Cheers to you all!

Thanks for the tip about realage.com. Boy, have I spent some time there taking the basic test and then another one today about the risks for breast cancer. I'm scheduled for a mammogram the first week of August, so reading about the huge number of false positives was good to know, just in case I happen to be one of those. It was also reassuring to know that because my mother's breast cancer was detected at age 71, it most likely had nothing at all to do with genetics but probably, lifestyle. Still,it was good to see how low my risk is, below the average on each of the factors. My realage was 2� yrs. less, and if I took vitamins which I really don't think is necessary considering my diet, it would be even younger. Well, now that I'm on the list and will be receiving their mail, I'll be sure to check it all out. Many thanks again.

Did you know??? Fourteen mini-eclairs have 666 calories--the mark of the beast . . . from the Bible.

This entry is just a "get back to it" kind of entry--I'm down on my
weigh-in by a pound.

For my activity: Mon 7.12: Jog 25/Walk 15 min
Tues 7.13: Jog 20/Walk 15 min
Wed 7.14: NordicTrack 61 min/7.4 mi; Jog 20 min/Walk 20 min

I tore up my NordicTrack (speedwise)--it made the workout go so much faster.

Cheers to you all!

Do your kids a favor--don't have any. --Robert Orben

For my activity on Saturday: Jog 25/Walk 10 min. I also did some furniture moving and house cleaning.

For my activity yesterday: NordicTrack 41 min/4.7 mi; Jog 20 min/
Walk 10 min. Also did some window washing (2 small and 1 large) and a small bit of carpet steam cleaning.

I've never watched an ep of "The Simpsons," but while channel surfing, an interview with the person who voices Lisa Simpson caused me to stop and listen. Who knew (actually who cared?)--that she's been a bulimic for 25 years (?), ah, but only for sweets, apparently.

Cheers to you all!

I didn't know that but she looks just like my sister-in-law, who I am pretty sure isn't bulimic, just incase you wanted to know.


geevee on 07/12/2004:
Yardwork and what I consider disagreeable household maintenance chores are excellent substitutes for the gym, but I sure am not interested! My house would look great if I did. The problem is, I'm simply not interested. So, good for you! I sure wish I could focus my energy in the right direction when I'm home.


stellastaragain on 07/12/2004:
A whole bunch of deficits for you. Great job! You have never watched "The Simpsons"? I like that show so much! Jewish humor.... I get it...... same thing with "Rugrats". (Don't tell the others about the cartoon thing, okay? :) Just kidding.... a little joke of my own :( The thing about doing the kids a favor funnnnnnney. Missed you over the weekend.

Good to see you hanging in there! I'm going to get with it any day now. The weight is starting to show up again in my face. I HATE that!

Well Cheers to YOU! I am feeling very good about your last few days also. Thank you for the sane and wise quote for the day. How brilliant and true. I am so interested in visiting you again at my email address if you ever take a notion, b. I am thinking of you.

The world breaks everyone and afterward many are stronger at the broken places. --Ernest Hemingway

For my activity yesterday: Jog 20 min/Walk 20 min. I know my fiber was a little higher than reported because I ate some homemade "Garden Lasagna" and I just used what Fitday had for "Vegetable Lasagna."

I went on my usual jog yesterday at dusk. I had been hearing murmuring and a bell-ringing sound (not an old-time bike bell). I just ignored it. I turned onto a street and stayed to the left on our somewhat narrow streets, although there is plenty of room for two cars and people walking on at least one edge.

I turned to look behind me as I rounded the corner and saw some people on bicycles. They all were wearing helmets. I really took no note; I simply thought they'd pass without incident. They turned where I did and took awhile to catch up to me. You know I'm a pretty slow jogger, but they seemed to hang back quite a ways. So I heard the ringing again, and again I ignored it. A man passed me on the right and said, "Hi." Then a boy passed. Just after him, a girl (about 10-12) passed, then immediately cut to directly in front of me to where, in retrospect, I could have just tumped her and her bike right over. She stayed there in front of me for a few seconds and I said nothing, just thinking she was inexperienced. Then she sped up to catch up to the man and he said something like, "Good going!" or "Good job!"

I was a little dumbfounded at first and thought, "What kind of parent would put their child up to that?" All of this knowing it was getting dark, they had no lights on their bikes, what if there had been oncoming traffic, and why was this man hell-bent on riding three abreast after they passed me a little ways. All I could think was, "What an idiot, teaching your child road rage." It was just bizarre. I wanted to think I hadn't really seen this happen.

On another bicycling note, occasionally I see people carrying their helmetless babies on the backs of bikes. That just creeps me out. All I can imagine is smushed baby head on the pavement. Sorry for that mental image, but these parents do know better don't they? No, I suppose they don't!

Cheers to you all!

I love how you report at the end of your entries your calories, fat, fiber, water, and calorie deficit. I've been meaning to log my food into fitday, but haven't gotten to that yet. I do write it all down, though. I think I'll steal your idea, if that's okay! lol.


legcramps on 07/08/2004:
Nice quote today - sure does makes sense! You made a comment to me earlier about my 'flax buns'. My grandma made me some about two weeks ago because she knows I don't like to eat too much white bread. She makes them with flax flour instead of regular flour, and they're just dinner buns. Make sense? That's all I know, but if you want the recipe, just let me know and i'll get it from her! Good luck to you in 'getting back there'. One day at a time and many experiences in between!


stellastaragain on 07/08/2004:
So apparently the idea of basic courtesy is becoming a value extinct (I hear more and more of the types of story that you wrote about today) and random acts of kindness seems to elude too many... Please be extra careful with your dear self, biscotti. You're in the big "T", right? I have discovered, perhaps since I was last here? ... that I have a half sister that I have never met. She lives in San Antonio. I was almost afraid to ask her (because of the geography) how she liked W, but she brought it up herself and I was so relieved :) Keep moving in the direction of your power in whatever you do Friday, okay?

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. --Anne Frank

For my activity yesterday: Jog 33 min/Walk 20 min. I made some better food choices.

Cheers to you all!
