Well, I guess this signals the "near" end of tempting the high-calorie monster. I will admit to eating not one, but two, quarter-pounders with cheese--something I usually don't really care for.

Anyway, on my jogfest I jumped over a snake--it apparently was getting warm as the sun was setting. At first I thought it was dead, but I went back after the jog with my dog and the snake was gone.

Hope you're having a good food choice day!

Did Circuit (so-called "Emergency Workout") weight workout--pushups, bent over rows, stationary lunges, deadlifts, calf raises, shoulder press, biceps curls, triceps dips, bicycle crunches, squats (it almost takes more time to type it than it does to finish it--less than 15 min) then Jog 30 min;
70 oz water

Mon 8.18
No Pre-bkfst ex;
Jog 20 min--never really got sore from previous day's weight workout;

Tweaking my plan again! Starting today--I'll count calories, fat, and carbs. I've been writing down my food in my notebook, but I haven't been using Fitday--will start back today!

My goal this week is to do the Emergency Workout (EW) every other day. We'll see how that goes:-) Hope you're having a good exercise day!

Did you hear about the three pigs who went to this bar, well they drank like pigs, I mean they put away the beer like you wouldn't believe. Two of the little pigs kept running to the bathroom all evening but the third just sat there on the bar stool drinking beer after beer. Well the bartender finally yelled last call, the pigs all ordered up another round and two of them went to the bathroom before heading home. The third little pig just sat there and kept drinking.

Well next day one of the two pigs stopped by the bar and the bartender told him, man I've never seen anything like your buddy that was in here last night. He drank all night and never went to the bathroom once. The pig replied, "Yeah but he's the little pig who goes wee wee wee all the way home."

I'm back down to 156.5 today. Haven't figured my cal/fat for yesterday, but I estimate over 2000 for calories. A Timmy the Tapeworm kind of eating day. I just couldn't eat enough!

I also got in a 20 min jog. Given the choice between cool/humid and hot/dryish, I'll take hot!

Hope your day is going smoothly!

No pre-brkfst exercise yesterday

Did not get in early workout--a little sore plus knew I would be doing a little mowing later on. Ended up doing about 45 min of mowing. Then did a 20 min jog.

Foodwise I was over on both marks--went for chinese buffet but didn't overeat. It's amazing how little it takes to satisfy my appetite nowadays.

Hope your day is going well!

In addition to the NordicTrack, I also did a 20 min jog later on. And during the early workout I did 5 sissy pushups X 3, 100 (50 ea side) bicycle situps X 3, and 5 each reg squat, deadlift, biceps curl, and triceps kickback.

So the fat was a little high--I have some pesto sauce I still am working on--and I ate a small fried pie (out of sheer opportunity and boredom, oh, and it hit the spot!)not bad:-)

Hope you have a good exercise day!

Here is my exercise for the last few days.

Fri 8.8: Jog 33 min (19-14)
Sat 8.9: Jog 30 min
Sun 8.10: Jog 35 min (12-13-5-5)
Mon 8.11: Jog 30 min

I'm just about a day away from the end of "Back2Basics for Two Weeks." I haven't been watching my food at all for the last few days. I'm going back to exercising before breakfast and watching fat and calories (or at least using FitDay every day for awhile). This is my usual weigh-in day, but I didn't do that. I'm sure I'm up a few pounds--almost all my measurements are up at least a quarter-inch today.

It's so easy to lose ground at this effort. It's hard to face that fact even when the numbers bear it out (by going up and up). If I keep up the rate I've been for the last week or so--I'll probably be up 10 pounds in a month or less.

There was one day I was jogging that I swear my legs felt just like two logs clonking down the road. It was cooler right after a rain, but the humidity was awful. It took forever to get into it that day.

Exercise will only take me so far--I've jogged for 26 out of the last 32 days--which is personally gratifying, but I need to apply that same perseverance and absence of fear of failure to my food choices. Oh, and taking it one day at a time can't hurt:-)

Oh to have the metabolism of my 15-year-old self (and no cares of "food choice"). I will get below the overweight BMI soon--with time and patience, good food choices, and Pastagal's One day at a time and Consistency will help you get to your goal faster. Hope you're hangin' in there PastaGal:-)

Hope you all have a good food choice day!

Hi there!

I lost my way foodwise--not much else to say--I let myself go! I got in a jog for all days: Tues 30 min; Wed 30 min (19-11); Thurs 40 (23-6-11). Still feeling good jogging except for the heat.

On my jog last night, I was the victim of an unfortunate "redneck in a pick 'em up truck" smooshing a toad under his/her front tire incident. I could feel the toad juice splashing all over me as the unlucky creature was crushed under the weight of BillyJoe's dumbass hauler.

Poor toadie-oadie! A**hole pickup-driving dumba**!

So, it's back on track tomorrow for the last 5 days of the "Two Weeks."

Happy Tuesday!

I'm still writing down my food. I got in a 30 min jog yesterday. Because of the heat (even at 8 p.m.) there aren't alot of people out exercising. But there are two older (early 70s) women I see just about every evening at some point of my jog--this has been going on for at least 2 months. They don't just walk up the street for 5 or 10 min--they go at least for a half hour.

If you're finding it hard to get motivated to exercise for yourself, maybe thinking about family or friends who either are no longer with you--ones you know would be cheering you on in your endeavor, or ones who, because of physical limitations, can't get out anymore. Just a thought:-)

Hope your day is going well!

gigi43 on 08/05/2003:
Thanks for the words of encouragement and sharing your story - it helps so much to know that other people understand how hard this is! Par tof it is feeling guilty for being away from the family for an hour but my husband told me that was ridiculous, that I need that time to exercise, and I know he's right. So I'm gonna go again today no matter what! Good luck to you!


SoccerMom on 08/05/2003:
Wooo-hoooo! Just <i>look</i> at YOU! Down another pound, with just three to go by the 19th. I <i>know</i> you can do it! Keep that body moving, and remember to always ~~SMILE!~~
