Weight: 155.0

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 155 (Aug 2003)
My Current Goal: 152 by August 19
Current BMI=26.6; My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8


2 out of 3 meals on plan; 90 oz water; 1 cheat--small piece of chocolate (with raisins and almonds)

Woo-hoo! A new low! Down 1.5 pounds--yiiii-hah!

For exercise I did a 35 min jog.

Hope you're having a good day!

A large family, with seven children, moved to a new city. They were having a difficult time finding an apartment to live in. Many apartments were large enough, but the landlords objected to the large family. After several days of searching, the father asked the mother to take the four younger children to visit the cemetery, while he took the older three to find an apartment.

After they had looked most of the morning they found a place that was just right. Then the landlord asked the usual question:

"How many children do you have?"

The father answered with a deep sigh, "Seven...but four are with their dear mother in the cemetery."

My Current Goal: 152 by August 19

1 out of 3 meals on plan; 90 oz water; no cheats

I actually missed my lunch. I still needed to eat before jogging, so I ate some triscuits with a bit of peanut butter (Smucker's all natural--no hydrogenated oil--just the peanuts, ma'am!). I did just fine--did a 25 min jog--no stops--actually I felt amazingly good! Instead of gatorade, I mixed a little orange juice with water and a pinch of salt.

Haven't checked my calories yet--may wait until the 2 weeks are over--maybe not. Even though I didn't eat a ton yesterday or on plan--I feel like I got plenty to eat.

Hope you're having a good one!

2 out of 3 meals on plan; 90 oz water; 1 cheat--soda

Well, I'm back down to my low of 156.5 today. Breakfast and lunch were right on track. Supper was a bit of a mixed bag. And I outright cheated when I drank a soda--had run out of gatorade for after my jog and just needed a little something else to wet my whistle! Gatorade is not on this plan either, but calorie-wise, it's lower than the same amount of fruit juice. (Duh, I guess there's always water--haha!)

For my exercise, I did a 35 min jog (18-5-5-5-2). I was totally spent after this. I don't think I've ever felt that way. I've been kind of wiped out after a jog, but not to the point where I just couldn't go on. This was very different for me. I think I simply didn't eat enough an hour or so before I went out. It had been more like 3 or 4 hours before (not that I was hungry). So I learned another little thing--a good thing!

For the month of July, I jogged 19 days (goal was every other day)--woo-hoo!

Hope you're having a good one!

I'm going back to my "original" plan--you know--the one I originally did--originally??? (hahahaha!)

And I plan to continue my usual exercise. The plan consists of writing down what I eat and using FitDay, but with no calorie or deficit counting per se. No "cheating," no room for overeating, and eating regular meals. If I have a craving--I wait it out and report it here (in all its glory!:-). It's a little low on complex carbs per meal, but with the exercise I may supplement that plan just a bit.

Fruit/veg/protein/fiber/water--basic!

No exercise yesterday.

Happy Wednesday!

This color is in honor of the dead lawn haha! Yesterday was a bit of a dry run to attempt a conscious loss; recording what I eat in my little notebook, using FitDay, and counting my water. I got in a 20 min jog for my exercise yesterday.

7.25 Fri: Jog 20 min
7.26 Sat: No exercise. Except during a long cellphone call I paced around and back and forth in the kitchen for about 2 hours--have to do that indoors or the signal cuts out--so I guess I burned a bit there:-)
7.27 Sun: Jog 35 min (21-14)
7.28 Mon: Jog 25 min

Hope you're having a good day!

Soon2BThin on 07/30/2003:
Thanks for asking. Mom is doing okay. She had a procedure done on her back, a small surgery, yesterday in the hospital. She was in quite a bit of pain afterward. Don't know when she will be able to go home. I think we're slowly going through that transition of Mother becoming child and child becoming Mother. Hah! I spent most of the day at the hospital yesterday with her. I'm just taking a hiatus right now from diet and exercise, although, before this, I wasn't doing so well either. I think Saturday should be a good day to buckle down and get at it seriously, I hope. I'm just not ready yet. You're doing great!

Activities, Water, Deficit: Temporary Hiatus!

Today marks 1 year of fairly regular jogging for me! I'm just so psyched because when I started I had thoughts that I'd have to give up because my knees wouldn't be able to take it. Au contraire--one year on, that's the last problem I'm having and I owe about 90% of my good luck to shoe choice and that I always look forward to getting out there and finishing my outing.

Not to mention that when I started I was just about 10 pounds heavier. My goal was to lose 15 pounds. So here I am (I was thinking about this during my 40 min jog last evening) making that my goal once again. I have a visual of what 15 pounds is as well as what it feels like--my weights that I use for weight work--and it's just too much to carry around anymore. My first (smaller) goal is to lose 6 pounds.

I'm going to give it that old college try again. Watching what I eat, exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water, and getting plenty of rest (not the easiest thing for me). Here I go again!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend--stay cool!

Activities, Water, Deficit: Temporary Hiatus!

I took a break from exercise except to walk and train the dog a bit--maybe a 30 min walk in all.

Someone mentioned that they get sideaches when running. I don't get those, but I had the same feeling in the upper part of my ribs after eating Mexican food last night. I thought it was gas and so I drank some Pepsi, but it just kept on for about 4 hours. I've had it before, but not for such a long time. Don't really have a history of GI problems, but I guess the aging process will do that to you.

Hope you all have a good day!

Happy Wednesday Diet Diary People!

My measurements (except abdomen--down .25 inch) were up or unchanged. I'm still not counting calories, etc, but I'm thinking of something to start for a short challenge.

For Monday, I did a 25 min jog--no stopping--woo-hoo! What a feeling of accomplishment, empowerment, and strength of self! Do I sound like a nutcase yet? I feel great, no kidding:-)

For yesterday, I did a 20 min jog--hotter than hell--no breeze--sucked, but I got it done and even took one big hill and two small ones. The good thing about a hill is there's always a downside eventually--yippee!

The heat is breaking a bit today--even a couple degrees and less humidity makes a difference.

This site's list has Nabisco Heyday Bars and Sunshine Yum-Yums and those are the two I'm thinking of from a previous entry. Anyone remember them and know of something similar? Garlic mentioned something called "Yes-Yes"--but that doesn't ring a bell with me.

Boy They Were Good, But . . .

Hope you're all having a good one!

Happy Monday One and All!

For Saturday I did a 38 min jog (16-6-9-7) and yesterday a 20 min jog (11-3-6). The new shoes are making a huge difference. I could tell I was getting close to needing new ones because my Rt calf would get tight toward the end of my session.

Thanks to Garlic for the feedback about the "Yum-Yums"--I went to a couple of websites to see if I couldn't find someone who remembered them or if maybe a regional company might still make them--no real luck. Also, I think the Girl Scout version is/was called "Samoa"--haven't had them in a few years but they are very much the same. I guess they don't make "Dinkie Twinkies" anymore either:-(

My weight is holding at about 158 since giving a break to all the counting sh*t that I've been so used to doing.

Have a good day!

Hey there!! I'm sitting here thinking about those cookies. Why am I thinking those cookies were called "Yes Yes", not Yum Yum? I'm either losing my mind or I have a great memory. Ring any bells?
