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.

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!

Every gun that is fired, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
--Dwight D. Eisenhower

I'm still at it. The backbone of my exercise has been jogging. I am wanting to lose more, but just haven't had my mind in the right place. I have been faithfully logging my food in my tiny spiral notebook, but not using Fitday--starting back with it with yesterday's choices--didn't have a positive deficit, oh well. I will say this: 2-3 years ago I would probably have eaten as much (if not more) and taken absolutely no note of what and how much I had eaten.

My weight went down on my weigh-in last week, and I'm holding my own this week. I still feel very good about all that I've accomplished. I'm still enjoying the jogging too.

I hope to catch up with some of you--I see stellastarr is back up on the list--let's go!

Well HI There! I see that you are still at it and looking pretty darn great. The list of daily activities just gives me a reeling headache... I have lost so much ground. Yesterday I dug a huge whole, however, to transplant a lilac tree.... I was digging up on a rather dry bank and I used some muscles that kind of went on strike today... Hoping that slow and steady still wins races :)

As part of my weight workout the other day I did some calf raises. I could tell in my jog yesterday the difference it makes. I know they're great for helping prevent shin splints--I don't have a problem with shin splints. What I noticed is that my calves weren't fatigued at all--I felt like I could go on jogging forever!

Exercise for yesterday was Jog 20 min/Walk 15 min and a quite a bit of driving--didn't count the driving on Fitday. I'm up � pound. I also took my measurements--not too bad. I'm up 1/8 for my leg (24-1/8), up .5 each for Abd (38.5) and Hip (41.25), up 3/8 for Waist; Arm (11-1/8), Wrist (6.25), and Bust the same; Calf (15-1/8) is down 1/8.

Cheers to you all!
