Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others. --Buddha

For exercise I did a 20 min Jog/10 min walk. Well it's bug-inhaling season once again. So I have to remember to close my mouth if I jog at dusk or thereabouts. And then hope I don't inhale any bugs through my nose--haha!

Cheers to you all!

Thank you for your kind words. I was a little hard on myself. I normally am positive. I had a really bad day and let it show on here. I know it doesn't do anyone any good to hear negativity. Thank you for your support. Try to keep you mouth closed when you jog. We don't know how many calories a bug is. LOL!

Congrats on the weight lost and yuck to those bugs!!!

I'm down 2 pounds on my weigh-in this week--woo-hoo, but a cautionary one because I've been there:-) It's been a bit of a struggle to get in a groove, but not too bad. For exercise I did a 30 min Jog/10 min walk.

you had a good week!!! you continue to amaze me with your commitment to exercise.


geevee on 04/27/2004:
I'm happy with two pounds a month! To do it in one week is fantastic!

I want to ask you about how often I should do weight training. I heard that every other day to give muscles time to recuperate, but I have no idea at all. Also, the matter of sets and reps.

Should I begin by doing just one set of 10 or 15 reps and then in time increase to two and then three sets?

Also, how important is the time element? Sometimes at the gym you have to wait for a machine, so getting all the exercise within a certain period of time is not always possible.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Okay I have to know- where did you get the quote yesterday from Brigham Young???


geevee on 04/26/2004:
Barbellss? Oh, my God! I've never, ever lifted one! I am so WEAK when it comes to upper body strength. A year and a half ago when I was weight training there was one machine, the name of which I don't know, that I just couldn't show any improvement on. With arms extended upward, you had to lift the bar. The lowest weight was 15. After three months, I was still at 15 and couldn't complete the ten reps! There was no hope at all for me on this machine. If I go back tomorrow, I will ignore it!

Hey! Thanks for the tip about the caliper fat measurement. I'll ask "if" I make the plunge.

It's not so much that I'm dreading the weight room but that I'm able to use it and then when I go to the pool, am able to find a lane. I keep experimenting trying to find THE perfect time to go.


Kanga on 04/26/2004:

Soon2BThin on 04/26/2004:

Good for the body is the work of the body, and good for the soul is the work of the soul, and good for either is the work of the other.
--Henry David Thoreau

So on Wednesday I mowed for about 2 hours, then took a
Jog 20 min/Walk 10 min. Then on Thursday about all I did was some driving. Friday I took a Jog 20 min/Walk 5 min.

If you're not in your 40s yet, take a little grain of advice from me please: if at all possible, get yourself in some kind of exercise routine for the coming years. Don't forget it for months at a time.

I say this because yesterday the cobwebs were so many and strong around me (before I went jogging) that I just didn't want to do a damn thing. (And of course I was exhausted to boot.) I can always find 20 min to jog. I just know that if I stay "off" for more than 1 day, it's like climbing a horrible mountain to get back into a routine.

Cheers to you all!

You are right about all diarrhea stinking but this type is particularly foul. Without getting into too much detail, the consistency of it also makes it hard to clean up. Not that I am the consiseur de poop. Just some FYI. I was just letting you guys know what a literally sh-tty day I had! Take care. Congrats on the loss.

Doesn't it feel good just to lose that one pound? It brings you one pound closer to your goal. Congratulations!

Soon2BThin on 04/21/2004:
I know that feeling "my possibilities are endless" Losing the weight like this gives me hope that I can get down to the weight I want. Even though sometimes it seems like such a long way off. Good job losing the pound and you're doing great on the exercise, as usual.


chunkeemonkee on 04/22/2004:
whats funny about the cookie comment you made on an earlier entry is that those slice and bake cookies are better than anything id ever be able to make on my own. okay, so maybe thats more sad than funny. but its true. and yes, seeing the scale drop, even by a pound, kind of forces a smile on your face. good job!

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
--Chinese Proverb

I'm down a pound from my weigh-in. Nice to see that. Overall the week didn't look so good, but I did get in some good exercise (FitDay avg for week was 10%)--I'm worth this journey!

I'm going to continue the jogging and go back to doing the Circuit Aerobic Workout every third day--skipping 2 days between sessions.

For my exercise on Sunday I did a Jog 30 min (7-18-5)/Walk 5 min. For Monday I did a Jog 20 min/Walk 5 min--a little humid and more taxing than usual.

Cheers to you all!

I don't know why it is we are in such a hurry to get up when we fall down. You might think we would lie there and rest for a while. --Max Eastman

I had a really bad food day. I had a few too many chocolate chip cookies. The kind in the package you plop on a cookie sheet and bake. Next time I'm going to make my own. If I'm going to eat them, I may as well make decent ones. And I am going to eat them. Just not twice as many as I really need.

For exercise I went on a Jog for 20 min and a 10 min walk.

Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. --Anne Lamott

I had a pretty good food day. For my exercise: Jog 20 min/
DogJog 5 min/Walk 20 min. Didn't do the 12 min test yet. I did do about 3 min worth of hills.

Oh my, did anyone see the Oprah ep about changing your underwear, shoes, pillows, etc? I had recorded it and finally watched it. I hardly ever watch her, but this sounded intriguing. The woman had 30yo underwear with safety pins. But what got me was the guy with the 10yo running shoes and he was so proud of them. I mean they were the shoes that helped him lose 150 pounds for crying out loud. Who wouldn't be proud?

He had invested in 7 treadmills in those 10 years, but couldn't bear to part with these nasty-assed shoes--goodness!!! They took them to the lab and found staph aureus (a major cause of food poisoning)--and he was so proud that they hadn't ever been out in the "dirt"--now, why couldn't she have arranged for that poor man a lifetime supply of treadmills and shoes/socks/running shorts/jock straps and Lysol disinfectant and a washing machine and a dryer and all the other crap she sets up to buy for other people--she arranged for sheets and pillows for the other woman . . .

Yes, my potty mouth has shown up in my entries every once in awhile. I'm not proud of it.

Cheers to you all!
