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!

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!

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!

garlic on 07/21/2003:
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?

I did about 1 hour/7.0 mi on the NordicTrack yesterday.

I did a 25 min jog (14-11)--it was just too hot for sensible people (haha!), and I was out after 8:30 p.m for crying out loud. Also, I had eaten a ton of chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon--probably didn't help my endurance!

Does anyone remember a cookie called "Yum-Yums?" Seems there was also one similar to it called Bavarian something or other??? It was more like a candy bar. I remember it had like the cookie part of a waffle-type cream cookie then some coconut, caramel, and chocolate drizzled on top. Do they still make them and what are they called--anyone who knows this, please respond--Thanks!

garlic on 07/18/2003:
I remember Yum Yums!!!!!! Very clearly. Back in the 60s. They were unbelieveable. I haven't seen them in years but I know there are girl scout cookies that are very similar. I forget what they are called but they have the cookie, carmel, coconut and chocolate. Boy, are those good!!!!

Hello All--hope you're having a good day!

I did a 20 min jog yesterday evening. Got new shoes--had to get the new model of the previous ones--so far, so good! Also, shelling out what I have to for a decent pair of running shoes is a bargain considering that I don't belong to a gym at this point in my life.

Have a good exercise day!

Happy Wednesday!

I did a 35 min jog (28-7) yesterday. Hope to get in a shorter one this evening.

Hope your food choices are good today!

I pooped out on the calorie counting for the last couple days of the challenge. The goals were probably slightly ambitious. So I'm going to take today (at least) and figure out something I can live with and actually accomplish.

BTW, I got into, buttoned and zipped up those size 8 acid-washed jeans from awhile ago--of course I had to lie down to zip the last couple inches, but what a rush! I had tried on some other really old pants from years ago the other day and got into them easily--they'll make good shorts!

As for weigh-in and measurements, both are up a bit except for calf and wrist measurements, they're the same. I did no exercise yesterday. I so needed the break.

Oh, I almost forgot to include this. I was doing the NY Times Crossword from the paper yesterday (Monday's the easiest). I had surprisingly little trouble completing it. I don't normally read my horoscope, but yesterday's was truly apropos:

You want change but don't want to compromise. You're jogging along in a semi-comfortable way, which will hardly lead to improvement.
