A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Well, I guess I had my "free" day yesterday. Soon after eating a good breakfast, I became ravenous. I never felt full all day--even had two slices of pizza (thin with beef/mushrooms) and a quite large caesar salad. I think it was just one of those days. Sometimes I can get like that and eat until I'm about to pop--rare the last few years, but it does happen--yesterday wasn't like that. Timmy the tapeworm rides again! I wasn't ever really full despite the amount of food I consumed.

I also only took a 20 min walk for activity, so that didn't help.

Cheers to you all!

A great war leaves the country with three armies--an army of cripples, an army of mourners, and an army of thieves. --German proverb

Hidy Ho All!

It's time for a little evaluation--I'm going to shoot for an entry and weigh-in Tuesdays and Fridays (at least). I'm up 2 pounds from last week's weigh-in, Yikes! Plus it's that time of year--when my body finds weight way too easily--time for some vigilance! Stop the complacency!

For my exercise/activity lately:
Mon 10.11: Circuit Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (10:30 min/1.1 mi);
Jog 25 min/Walk 15 min
Sun 10.10: Jog 20 min/Walk 20 min (before noon)
Sat 10.9: Mow, weedeat, clean-up 2 hours
Fri 10.8: Nothing--overate!
Thur 10.7: Jog 21 min/Walk 20 min
Wed 10.6: Nothing
Tues 10.5: Jog 20 min/Walk 15
Mon 10.4: Jog 20 min/Walk 10 min (impromptu 12 min test=.95 mi--it was .9 mi when I started jogging 2 years ago--a sign:-)

So that's where I am. My attitude is much more positive. Those days of moving boxes and sh*t took their toll on my hands--I seem to be developing a little arthritis--something I never experienced--and it's better than it was a week ago. Also, the tiredness I experienced lingered and lingered and lingered, but getting back to jogging seems to have counterbalanced it. When your body says, "NO!" sometimes it's better to ignore it. It's a very fine line.

I may try a "free day" on Friday--will see how the rest of the week goes. One thing I've found is that it's painful to go back to FF milk in my coffee. It's truly depriving, so that's my one daily "luxury."

Cheers to you all!

Last week I accidentally picked up a gallon of 2%fat milk rather than the normal fat-free. My deprived taste buds reacted as if I were having cream! Boy! Could I taste that little bit of fat! Imagine how I'd react to regular milk?

By the way, I had a walk through at the gym and talked to this nice fella who is there to help. I had about 20min. before yoga and didn't want to get tired before going so I made another baby step in the process. I did find out that these machines are much easier to adjust than the ones at the U of Miami. So that's good. I think working out 3 days a week will be a good addition to my plan. I'm not even considering the treadmill or step machine with such a thin layer of cartilege in my knees.

What a fool I was to think I could do the little moving trips and my jogging too--and still function--ya' know you can't do it all, you can't have it al! Although, I swear to God, I have it all--this house is packed! I refuse to put stuff in a storage unit (out of sight out of mind) until it either is destroyed or stolen. Mentally, I'm ready to cull the crap I'll never need or use or that is old and in the way and that technology has been responsible for the production of a better one of in recent years! Whew!

I only got in my jog on Tuesday of this week--and I did that one earlier in the day--something I want to try to gradually migrate toward. So for awhile I may go back to every other day jogging. I'll note my progress.

I think I've caught my breath now. So my next entry should be late tonight, early tomorrow. I wish you all the best in your journeys--I'll soon be reading/commenting again.

Cheers everyone!

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
--Elizabeth Lawrence

I quit writing down my food choices for quite a number of days--so that means I wasn't keeping track on FitDay, but I wasn't overeating or making the absolute worst choices (which means I wasn't making the best, either). For my weigh-in for the 14th I was down a half-pound. For this week, I've weighed here and there and I'm round and about 156-157.

My jogging is still going well, I've been keeping at 25 min (the minimum for me at this point) with about 20-30 min walking total per day. I haven't been doing anything else activity-wise except moving some stuff from an apartment to what will become my permanent home (I've finally gotten my mind wrapped around this--a long story to say the least). I've mowed/edged/weedeaten the yard at least once. I bought a gas weedeater and the yard looks much better. It started getting very unwieldy to drag an extension cord all around, not to mention the handle broke off the day I brought home the gas model of weedeater (actually an Echo brand). I still have to throw the old one away.

My plan is to make a DD entry daily, do the Circ Aer Wkt (weights) 2-3 days per week, continue jogging, count stuff on FitDay, and, I hope lose another 10 pounds--140 still sounds good to me!

I was reading an old (10 years) Am Heart Assoc book and it had a calculation to use for ideal weight. This is for women, take your inches above 5 feet, multiply times 4 and add 100--so mine is just about 120. Of course this was written before people were encouraged to lift weights and change their body composition. I simply don't see me feeling healthy at that low of a weight. But I'm open to weighing it one day. I just think it would have to be an all-consuming endeavor--something I don't see me doing. I'd be happy just to get out of "overweight" BMI. Life is just too short!

Oh, to yoyo, the quote from Bush was from whitehouse.gov--all his words are transcribed for our consumption.

Cheers to you all!

According to that formula, my ideal weight is 108, about the same as the last web site I checked. That's LITTLE! At 125 my ribs are becoming very noticeable. I'm just going to keep on plugging away trying to lose and eventually I'll arrive at a weight that seems appropriate. Anyway, glad you're back. I've missed your quotations.

However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts. --Henry David Thoreau

For my activity, Jog 25 min/Walk 30 min. I clocked the jog at 2.1 mi--pretty slow--but that's okay. That particular route has a few more hills; I don't anticipate getting much faster until I drop a few pounds. I am down on my weigh-in and measurements today.

How much do you wanna bet that in a few months, Bill Clinton is going to be saying, "It's the saturated fat, Stupid!" Speaking of politics, did you happen to hear what Dubya said in a campaign stop yesterday?

Here it is: "Too many OB/GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country."

Cheers to you all!

Thanks for the update on your niece. Boy, does time pass quickly! I thought about her after I made my comment yesterday and thought I'd wait until tody to ask you about her. Well, you are WELL versed in such family problems and know that my grand-daughter will be even wilder in her teens, probably running away from home, getting pregnant, going on drugs, whatever, because her parents have no control at age 4, nor did they ever for that matter. It just gets worse every year. My hands are tied too. Speaking out to correct her only alienated me from them. Her little brother is just as bad. I can't put up with bad parenting and have to speak out.

Where did you hear that Bush quote? It sure will be nice someday to again have a president who can put together a complete sentence that actually makes sense! Have a great day!

I just read your comment on my last entry and thought that I would let you know that we found out that the dogs shots are all up to date and the county is now involved. We also found out that I was the third person the dog has bit!

What we feel and think and are is to a great extent determined by the state of our ductless glands and viscera. --Aldous Huxley

Yesterday's activity was Jog 25 min/Walk 10 min. Didn't get in the weights. I spilled gasoline on my watch--the one I use to jog with. I cleaned it, but it still stunk of gas. So I put some perfume on the band--then it stunk of too much perfume, so I wiped it down with alcohol. So it still works and I really don't want to get a new one, but I've been shopping a bit online and I think I may get a HR monitor next (Polar M61 sounds like a good bet)--anyway. So the watch smells like gas+white linen now, hahaha!

Cheers to you all!

OH, Biscotti, you recognized my situation when you saw that child on the street while you were jogging. She was exactly like my grand-daughter. What a sad situation it is. This girl is in total control and does whatever she pleases. It doesn't seem to bother my son or his wife. She has destroyed their apt. as far as I'm concerned. Anyway, we have severed our ties since last night. My Korean daughter-in-law crossed the bounds by insulting me with her rude comments to the extent that I can't imagine EVER forgiving such an outburst which was prompted when I told the child to stop jumping on my leather sofa. What was her reaction? She totally ignored me - blank look. Mommy said nothing. I went over to make my point which set Mommy off. It was unbelievable! When I woke up this morning, they had lelft, and she had put a nasty note on my counter. Well, I doubt I will ever be in contact with my son again. You know how it goes. He sticks with his wife and perfect child. You and I know well what will happen in ten years! I had forecast a year ago that she would be either suspended or expelled from K or first grade. Now THAT tells you how bad it is. What annoys me most is that she KNOWS. I heard her say, "...but not in grandma's house." I haven't even thought about food, but boy, has the wine come in handy!


legcramps on 09/07/2004:
That's funny - i've done things like that myself, trying to cover one smell with another!!! Like, for instance, not having any deodorant and choosing instead to use my boyfriend's. Then having to cover that smell of 'boy' with perfume! The result - not pretty, that's for sure. Have a great day today!

Since today is the first day of the week, I thought I'd celebrate by getting back into the groove--the groove I have severely deviated from. I'll be entering my info at about midnight-ish. I'm trying . . . again. Weight is the same--measurements were up a bit this week.

Am still jogging 5-7 days per week--need to get in a weight workout today. Cheers everyone!

Thanks for cluing me in on LOL! I had absolutely no idea!

As for the visit, it has degenerated to the point of no return, I fear. An imperious 4 and 2 yr. old rule the roost which is just fine with mom and dad. Nasty words were exchanged. I'm considering telling my son to rent a car and leave tomorrow, a day early. I have reached my limit.
