I did a light (about half) Circuit Aerobic Workout on the NordicTrack,
25 min/2.7 mi. Couldn't push myself any more than that. I was so lacking sleep, and I finally got a very decent night's sleep last night.

Before I got to bed, I thought I was starting to get a blood clot in my calf at one point--not that I would know from firsthand experience. I had a headache most of the day. Basically I felt like dogsh*t for the most part. But I tried to do that workout (mind over matter). Then I just felt worse. Sleep is just so important for me.

Cheers everyone!

Get your rest, its very important, then you'll see that you get your energy back!


Soon2BThin on 01/24/2004:
Good for you, doing the workout! It's harder when you don't get enough sleep. I don't think I could do it. I can barely make it as it is, haha! I'm waiting for it to get easier! Have a good weekend.


JellyBelly2 on 01/24/2004:
Blood clots feel hot and are usually red. My ex had one and my sister died from one. Nothing to play around with! If there's pain or heat there, go check it out.


inmorning on 01/24/2004:
Hey, one way to check and see if you are possibly getting a blood clot is to dorsiflex (toes toward your head) your foot while laying supine (on your back). If you feel any pain in your calf, lay down and try not to move. You don't want that sucker getting loose!!!!!! I would hate to not have someone as wonderful as you around. :~)

Happy Friday!

Well! I got that "free day" idea out of my system--at least for the coming week or so. I enjoyed it all, especially the dark chocolate:-)

FWIW, I am sustaining a deficit for the past week, better than the alternative, hey hey!

As for exercise yesterday, I got in an extremely short NordicTrack workout, 21 min/2.2 mi.

Bit of a Shoe Rant (with all due respect):
I just want to address something I keep seeing over time in alot of people's entries. It's about shoes--don't sell your feet short on a crappy pair of shoes. It's not worth it! If your shoes aren't comfy--you're not likely to stick with any kind of exercise.

If you don't believe me, go to a serious running or walking site or newsgroup and ask around. Ask "Runner" on here--she's a serious runner, at least 6 miles per day. Your shoe cushioning is worth only about 500, maybe 600 miles and the sole may look fabulous and they may look clean, etc. They just weren't meant to last forever.

Cheers everyone!

Did 66 min/8.2 mi on the NordicTrack. Later a 20 min jog. Mindful eating.

We'll see about having a free day. Since I'm still building momentum after having 2 or 3 "free-ish" days last week, it's hardly realistic. Maybe a little more chocolate or something I normally don't let go with. I'm just not really one to eat a half-dozen donuts or a pint of ice cream anyway. Those aren't my weaknesses. One greasy cheeseburger and fries maybe, but not two. I just don't eat like I used to or even think about eating like I used to.

And as far as "emotional eating" goes, it doesn't fit me. There are two necessary elements involved there for me--stress and those kinds of foods in the house that I would choose to alleviate it. I'm not likely to run to the store to stock up and then bring it home and stuff my face anymore. And of course it doesn't alleviate my stress anyway. Daily exercise does more for me than any food any day! After more than a few stress-induced binges, I've learned this.

Cheers everyone!

Congratulations! You are not on a diet. You have changed your lifestyle. I guess the next time stress hits, exercise, then eat.


Soon2BThin on 01/22/2004:
I've learned a few things about my "free days", the biggest is, I can't have them! Haha! Tuesday I weighed 158.8 and I had 27 "flex points" left that I could have that day, finishing my flex points for the week. I didn't run out and get any junk, I just ate more of what was already in the house. Well, the next day I weighed 161.2. So now I'm just trying to take off that extra 2.4 lbs. Sheesh, so much for flex points. Guess I'll just try to stick to my regular points or at least spread the flex points out during the week. I sure admire your exercise. I'm still struggling along just to get in a 35 minute walk! And the weight lifting too, of course. Keep up the great work!


inmorning on 01/22/2004:
Wow, you have grown. Funny, I know the problem, yet I keep going back to the stress binges. Anyway, good for you. Incidently, what ever happened to that pezzy and kirsten? Just wondering. annastasia

I did a Circ Aer Wkt on the NordicTrack, 51 min/6.0 mi. Later on I went on a 25 min jog/5 min dog jog/5 min walk. I had breakfast (a good one). For some reason, I had a craving for good ol' runny eggs over easy. Had 'em with a piece of raisin toast. Good eatin' people--the only thing that could have made it better would have been some grits--ooh la la!

Happy Tuesday!

I'm up a pound. Not a problem, because I'm on track. I'm eating better the last few days. Did 61 min/7.0 mi on the NordicTrack. Later I took a Jog for 20 min/dog walk 10 min. It was right there, so I took it--haha!

I took a bowl of jello to the party. The farmer took a wife. The feeble man took sick. That last remark took the cake.

I took my measurements, they're all the same as 2 weeks ago except for Arm and Hip are up a quarter-inch and Waist is up a half-inch.

The only activity I got was 2.5 hours of grocery, etc shopping. Rt leg was a little sore from deadlifts the other day and I haven't been getting the greatest amount of sleep, which totally screws this entire process. I can't get fit without sleep. I can have one little nagging sore spot and get a good night's sleep and it's gone the next morning.

As for JellyBelly's question about the deficit, yes, I burned that many more calories than I ate. According to my calculation on Fitday. And I've recently begrudgingly started counting my sleep in with the Activities number. What that does is remove about 300 calories (6 hrs sleep, for example) burned. I guess it keeps me somewhat honest:-)

Cheers everyone!

I took a break from exercise yesterday. Food choices reflected a "free" day. I know that's one of those things that hits a nerve with alot of people. I've tried free days in the past, it didn't really serve me. As I've been writing lately, I'm in a different place in the process at this point. A crossroads maybe, where I could self-destruct. I don't think I'll do that. I'm just too proud of my hard work over the last few years that got me to this point. Momentum cannot be underestimated in a journey of any kind when you have an idea of what point B is (assuming you started at point A).

Point A is far far away for me. I couldn't go back to it if I wanted to. Not to say that something could happen (as happens in life) to cause me to gain weight again, but I wouldn't be going back to that point. Good for me!

Anyway, I will continue to try to make good food choices, get in my workouts and hold myself accountable here.

Cheers everyone!

JellyBelly2 on 01/17/2004:
Yep. You've come too far to self-destruct. But doesn't it seem like we've been stuck in the 150's for a decade or more? It is so easy to gain 10 lbs. and so, so, so hard to lose it. I have gained. But more than that, my body tone has become flub. Like, I look decent in clothes but out of clothes it's another story. Lifting a full coffee pot make my arm shake that's how out of shape I am! But, we keep chug, chug, chuggin along. Chugging together helps! Enjoy your free day!


prism on 01/18/2004:
When I was doing well on weight watchers, I found that a "free" meal at a fun restaurant once a week really never did me any harm...Once I started doing free "days" then I started an evil downward spiral ... I have not been in the mood for weight loss lately, just want comfort food...don't know what's wrong... I'm going to try the 10 week challenge again this year...Can't remember if you did it last year with us or not...? Anyway, I'm eating all the "bad foods" in the house and starting either tomorrow or Monday, planning on getting myself on track. I'm sure you will be able to get going again...You probably just needed a mental break from the constant focus on weight loss... :) If you want to check out the challenge...it's at http://www.geocities.com/dyp2k1/

Six days of the challenge completed. I had a good breakfast only 1 out 6 days. I did a little better on the Circuit Aerobic Workout--made my goal there.

I pretty much skipped breakfast and lunch yesterday.

I have concluded that losing weight/getting fit is deceivingly easy (DE). In fact alot about my life at this point is that way, DE. There are some things I need to rethink. I'm not finished--with alot of things. Deep down I find much comfort in not finishing things. That's not how most people are, I suppose. They are eager to finish and go on to the next thing. I'd like to say I'm like that in any form or fashion, but I'm just not. Except maybe about going to the bathroom--hahaha!

Cheers everyone!

Hey, what's this about skipping meals?!! Is that possible? Can people really do that? Lol There's no way I ever skip a meal, can't remember if I have ever done that, Lol. Seriously, you need to eat to keep your metabolism going, ya know? I try to eat several small meals during the day, we'll see if it helps, but my stomach is thankful, haha. Have a great weekend!

If it works for you then enjoy it :-)


Chrysalis on 01/17/2004:
I had to think about your comment about how getting fit/losing weight is deceivingly easy. You know, I think you're right. We dress up weight loss and getting fit in complicated formulas and conflicting diet plans, stock shelves and shelves of diet books and food books and fitness books, all of them claiming to have the perfect solution...and not only that, but the ONLY TRUE solution. I think that dieting has become the religion of the new millennium.
