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!

--George Dennison Prentice (1860)

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.

Addictions do come in handy sometimes: at least you have to get out of bed for them. --Martin Amis

For my activity, Jog 20 min/Walk 30 min. I found a penny in the half-moon light as I was walking home after my jog. I saw a dark circle in the street as I was rounding a corner and I stopped and thought it looked a little too round. So I turned to look at it from the other side and couldn't see it. All I could see was a shiny grease spot, so I looked back from the other way again and reached down for it. "See a penny, pick it up and all the day you'll have good luck!"

Cheers to you all!

I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the years'. --Henry Moore

You may ask yourself, "Why does she keep beating her head up against the wall?" It's a metaphor for what I seem to be doing--up, up, down, up, down, up--at least that's how I see it. It's sort of a slump, one that I'm determined to work through. I don't see me going back up to 189 anytime soon, but as I've said time and again, I'd like to at least be OUT OUT OUT of the OVERWEIGHT BMI category--145 pounds for me!

I've been consistent, but not been recording my stuff in Fitday.com, until yesterday. My water intake has been sporadic. My jogging IS consistent. I got in a Circ Aer Wkt (NordicTrack 4.5 mi/41 min) on Sunday--another scheduled for tomorrow. So I missed two of those workouts last week, which puts me off schedule a bit. All I can do is get back on track. It's a tough workout to get through, but it gets easier with each session and in the long run is worth it.

I'm up 1.5 pounds this week and my measurements are up .4 inch from original measurements on 7.27.

Happy Tuesday one and all!

I like your quote for the day. How true we sometimes see the "years" goal and for me that overwhelms me, but if I take it a day at a time....or 5 pounds at a time. Right now, I'm doing the 5% at a time, that way it doesn't defeat me before I even start. Your determination will pay off....keep up the hard work.

Not giving up is more than half the battle. Your determination is inspiring.


Soon2BThin on 08/24/2004:
Boy, oh, boy, I'm right there with you, only my weight has gone even higher than yours. I always told myself I would never get over 160 again and here I am. What's going on with us? If you can find out, please let me know. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time this week. DH is gone and I'm on my own (except for #3 son, who lives with us). I really don't miss him so it's not that. And I guess I could be doing worse. It sure seems to not take much to throw me off course. Well, let's keep on truckin'. We can't give up!


legcramps on 08/25/2004:
You can do it! Find that inspiration! And when you do, let me know where it is so that I can get myself some too!!! Have a good day!

The great majority of us are required to live a life of constant duplicity. Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike, and rejoice at what brings you nothing but misfortune. --Boris Pasternak

Yep, I got in the Circuit Aerobic Workout--had one scheduled for yesterday, but didn't feel up to it after getting a tooth filled. So I just did a jog--jogged every day except for Sunday and Wednesday.

My measurements are steadily going down since my first measurement after going back to doing the weight work. So since 7.27--my baseline for this 6-week weight training thingy--my RtArm is up 1/8, RtCalf is down 1/8, Hip, Bust, and RtLeg are all down a half-inch, Wrist is down 1/16, Waist is down 1/4, and Abdomen is down 3/4. That's a grand total of 2.6 inches. (I only measure the right side of arm, leg, etc.) Weight is up a pound.

I'd like to keep up with this routine for about 6 weeks and see where I am. We shall see.

Cheers to everyone!

. . . who died this past week--2 days shy of her 92nd birthday--her kitchen is preserved in the Smithsonian--was an officer in the OSS, precursor of the CIA. This brought her to France, wherein she started cooking in her 30s--so there is hope for us all!

I got in a 25 min Jog/35 min Walk yesterday. I have a Circuit Aerobic Workout on tap for today.

Cheers to you all!

geevee on 08/15/2004:
I remember her black and white days oh, so well. There I'd be with my notebook madly writing everything down. This was pre/VCR era and before her cook book was published. I'd watch her every week and try out her recipes. She made boning a chicken look SO easy, and that's removing the bones without cutting the skin so you'd have the whole body intact without the bones. I remember watching in utter amazement. And how I loved her defense of butter. And a little more wine, Jacque. She sure will be sorely missed!

Ah, the Olympic Games--I'm really looking forward to the Naked Men's Volleyball(s) Event--hahaha! Really though, are they having Trampoline this time? I'll have to look it up. It was interesting to watch during the last Games. Strip Tiddlywinks anyone??? Hahahahaha!

For my exercise yesterday, Jog 20 min/Walk 15 min. Boy Howdy! That weight work kicks in with results really fast, I must say. I jogged (for the first time in I don't know when) about 70 yards farther on my regular
20 min route. I knew I was going faster, but I couldn't seem to tone it down. My body found it's own, faster pace. It was a new experience.

Cheers everyone!

Soon2BThin on 08/15/2004:
Thanks for the advice. I have never been one to scrimp on walking shoes so now I will get really good running shoes, as you said. Any day now I may get started on the jogging, I don't know. I feel soooo self-concious at the gym though. It will have to be a day when I have more confidence in myself. I know, silly, but I can't help it. You're doing great!

I got in the aforementioned Circuit Workout using my NordicTrack
(4.2 mi/44 min). I also got in a Jog 20 min/Walk 15 min. It was good to do some weight work--it makes me really tired as the evening wears on, but somehow also makes the jog easier.

Cheers to you all!

Soon2BThin on 08/14/2004:
Wow, it sounds like you're doing great with the exercise! I want to start jogging one of these days. Do you have any advice for me? Have a good weekend!
