Just a quick update!

I didn't get in any exercise these last 2 days. I was really sore from the weights/jog on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, was just really tired and couldn't see any reason to try to exercise, so I didn't:-)

I guess I'll try to get myself moving today--haven't done a 12 min test in quite a while, so maybe I can get that in.

Hope you have a great day!

Baylee on 02/13/2003:
Hi, I can do the exercise tape I use in a way that I don't put as much pressure on the one hip as I normally would and it's a different kind of position to do the job I was doing yesterday. It was stand up, sit down, stand up sit down and lean over and put pressure on the hip while the joint is bent or flexed. That's the most painful of all. When I use it a lot while standing, it is usually LATER that I have pain from it. Anyway, I have an appointment at another big clinic in April to see if they can offer any more hope. There was a bid up at work for second shift and if it's still up today I'm going to sign it. The supervisor on second shift I think is easier to work with than the one on days. And the people are more friendly.

I'm curious, ... what's a 12 minute test? I truly do wish I could exercise like you do.But I know what you're saying about getting the feeling or attitude of "I don't see any reason to right now". I'm sure you'll be right back at it today. Have a good day! Baylee

kyrin on 02/13/2003:
Hey, girl! I see that you're still hanging in there with your workouts. Good for you! It's important to rest when your body tells you that it needs to do that. But, yeah, it's time to get up and get moving again.

I just started a four-day weekend challenge. Come on, Biscotti. Let's get moving!



Tigger on 02/13/2003:
Hey that is okay, we all need a vaction sometimes. Just get back in there soon so it does not become a habit :)

My weight is the same this week. On my measurements, they're just about the same; some up, some down; nothing significant either way, darling:-)

I did a 42 min jog yesterday. Found a way to go where I backtrack only a little. It's soooo boring to go the same way all the time. This one has quite a few hills, but they are not that difficult. I have a bit of a stiff neck/shoulder today, but I'm gonna try to get in a workout of some kind today.

Hope you have a good afternoon!

Baylee on 02/11/2003:
Thanks for the comments. Yes, I do have a juicer, but I seldom use it. I guess because I'd just as soon eat the fruit or veggie. That recipe sounds good. I'll have to try it one of these days. I like smoothies too. I just wish I could exercise like you can. I'd love to be able to jog, or just a fast walk/run, but this hip is hindering me now. Maybe some day I'll be able to get it fixed. You're doing great! Keep it up! Baylee

Did about 30 min walking on Thursday 2.6, then on Friday 2.7 I did my jog (40 min). Sunday 2.9 was my Circuit Aerobic Workout on the NordicTrack--kicked my tail end!

I'm still caffeine-free (cutoff time anywhere between about noonish and 4 p.m.) and it's been too easy once I got over the initial headaches. When I started cutting it out, I was afraid I'd wake up with a headache, but after about 5 or so days, the headaches went away. It just took a leap of faith I wasn't willing to take before. That all or nothing attitude. Gotta drink 50 cups of coffee or zero cups. Not true--I'm fine with 2 cups (maybe three) of coffee. I'm just mentioning it again, because usually by this time I've failed--so it may actually be becoming a way of life:-)

Hope you have a Happy Monday!

Tigger on 02/10/2003:
I agree with you on the all or nothing attitude. I used to be like, "well I all ready ate a handful of potato chips so I might as well eat the rest of the bag." Now I can say, "Hmm that was not the best choice, but my next one will be better."


inmorning on 02/10/2003:
That caffeine is a demon isn't it?

Baylee on 02/10/2003:
WoW! Your exercise is looking great! Thanks for your comments. I'm really trying hard to get this weight off and get in better physical condition all the way around. It's a difficult task, isn't it? I gave up coffee too, but for different reasons. I have esophageal reflux. Now I allow myself a cup on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Keep up the great work you're doing. Baylee

breakaway on 02/10/2003:
WOW you are doing terrific on kickin that caffine...I have only had one soda today and that is terrific for me. Usually I have two. I am really proud of you and it is really hard to kick that habit because of those headaches. Glad you made it through the worst part...now its all downhill! Keep up the great work!

I did 41 min/11 mi on the Airdyne--a real workout--not as fun as a jog, but it did kick my butt!

Have a good one, everyone!

pastagal on 02/06/2003:
Sounds like a great workout on that Airdyne bike,have a great day!

Hi DD People!

I did my 40 min jog yesterday. Still feeling good about the jogging thing. I took my hip and waist measurements--waist is the same and hip is up one-half inch. Still tracking food.

Hope you have a good day!

I'm up a pound on my weigh-in!

I haven't taken my measurements lately, but going up on the scale is a bit of a wake-up call anyway. Clothes fit the same, so I'm sure the measurements AREN'T down any. I haven't weighed 170 for quite some time, and I really don't want that for my next weigh-in.

I did my Circuit Aerobic Workout (using the Airdyne) yesterday and did two sets of reps. I've been trying to push myself for it to take less than 45 min. I'm going to try to get this in at least one more time this week.

Hope you all have a nice afternoon/evening!

dolyda on 02/04/2003:
wouldn't worry too much about the pound...i know what it's like passing an increment of 10 tho...yikes...sounds like you have a great plan tho...good luck! :D

Happy Sunday!

I did my 40 min jog yesterday. As it went on I got less winded. Was still a little sore from weights of the other day, but that didn't affect the jog--maybe it helped. I know it helps me in the long run.

Have a good afternoon!

ladybug20 on 02/02/2003:
Hello there! Great job on your run! Doesn't it feel great knowing you are getting stronger and can run farther without gasping for breath!! LOL! Keep up the good work! Sherri

congrats on the 40 min jog...i'm proud that i can jog 1 minute every 5...lol

Lainey on 02/03/2003:
Hi! Thanks for your breakfast suggestion! I've eaten cereal everyday for as long as I can remember, and come to think of it, I've usually been hungry before lunchtime! I think I will try your egg idea next time I go grocery shopping. I guess scrambled eggs (maybe on toast) works the same, right? Thanks again, and good luck! :o)

I was online so I decided to go ahead and enter my info for the last couple days.

What a day so far. I'm in North Central Texas and a local weather guy mentioned last night that the space shuttle was going to be flying over at 8:03 a.m. our time. I was up, but had forgotten about it. Then I heard a sonic boom--the breaking of the sound barrier. At least that's what I thought it was. I have heard in recent years that sonic booms are outlawed and probably haven't heard one since I was very young. It was a little after 8 and I thought, "Crap, I missed the shuttle going over!" I had never seen it and have always wanted to take a trip to Florida to watch a launch. I went ahead and went outside. I looked around and saw a vapor trail that was extremely wide.

I was watching C-SPAN and they broke in and had a statement and a picture from Mission Control. It's another horribly sad day that we will all remember with sadness. I heard someone mention that it's a miracle when the shuttle lands safely and without incident. Somehow we will find a way to go forward and look for that miracle in the future.

I also can't help but think about tragedies and violence that happen every day in every other part of the world. This too in the wake of the possibility of the U.S. intending to go it alone against Saddam Hussein. Emotions are high for this possibility alone. We're not alone in sorrow by any stretch of the imagination.

I was supposed to jog yesterday (Fri), but had done a circuit aerobic workout on Thursday and the soreness from doing the weights was just settling in and I so I'll do it today. I'm tracking my food, but yesterday wasn't too good in that regard. I am still in "caffeine cutoff in early afternoon" mode.

Have a good one--and as PastaGal always says, "Hug your loved ones!" Hugs (((((everyone)))))!

inmorning on 02/01/2003:
It is sad that the shuttle went down. I know they say it wasn't terrorism so let's hope they are right.

My Current Goal: 150 by April 8

Hi All!

I'm up a couple pounds on my weigh-in this week--it's kind of frustrating, but I more or less know what to do. The goal of the 28th has passed and I didn't come close. But, I'm making a new goal of 150 by April 8th. This is a plan for losing less than two pounds a week. I've seen others do it on here--PastaGal, Halley, Rader, and Garlic (where are you?), and I'm sure there are others here I've failed to mention--I've seen other success stories around the internet. Why not me--I think I can take a stab at it one more time. With a little more commitment--yes!

I sort of lost track of when I was supposed to be jogging next and went out on Tuesday thinking it was the right day--it was one day too soon, but I didn't realize it until way into the jog. The weather was great that day and was going to get dreary on Wednesday, so I think I kind of got a little bit giddy and lost track. Nevertheless, I felt very good. Then about 30 minutes into it I sort of ran out of gas and stopped jogging and just walked. I caught my breath and went ahead and did the other 10 min.

I couldn't believe that yesterday my legs weren't killing me. I've been so wary of taking it slow so as not to get injured and this was just like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow--haha! I thought I'd probably be limping on Wednesday--I wasn't! I still intend to keep the schedule of skipping 2 days, however. But, it's good to know I can deviate and still make out okay.

Food has been okay. I'm not really trying very hard. I did cut my caffeine much earlier and I seem to have slept better. I have always been one who didn't really think caffeine affected me that much. I guess you can't really tell until you cut down. I even cut it out for a couple weeks--that's all I could stand--several years ago. I simply can't do without at least one cup of coffee, period.

A 20-min walk for my exercise yesterday.

Have a great day!

Eh, an extra day of jogging just puts you ahead of the game. You are great. annastasia

Hello there! Look at you and all the jogging you are doing! WoooHooo! Doesn't if feel great just knowing you CAN do it! Great job! Thanks for the comments in my diary - you always make me laugh! Have a great rest of the day. Sherri :]

prism on 01/30/2003:
It will work for you.

You can do it.

Just think of other things in your life you have been successful at. You know you have what it takes to do this.

You are doing great on your exercise.

Just keep it up and don't give up!

Happy Tuesday!

Food choices were 4 stars for the most part the last few days with yesterday being 2 stars (out of five). For yesterday (1.27)--I did my NordicTrack (5.3/50 min) workout early and I just think I was hungry most of the day. Also did my NordicTrack on 1.25 (5.3 mi/52 min). Sunday 1.26 I got my jog in--40 min--no breaks this time. (The 25th marked my 6 month mark of jogging!)

I've gotten my good breakfast in every day since making a commitment. The other meal choices haven't been as good. So I've got room for improvement as usual:-) I'm also holding off on any caffeine/soda after about 5 p.m. I still think that's a huge deal for me and it's much easier to do.

If I could tolerate sugar-free types I'd go for it, but sugar-free drinks just turn my stomach upside down--I feel completely different after drinking just a small amount--of course I've screwed up and accidentally bought a diet Pepsi a few times and was thirsty so ended up drinking about half, but I also just don't like the taste.

Hope you have a good day!

Tigger on 01/28/2003:
First off, I love the way you have your diary set up! Showing your starting weight really helps us all see how far you have come. Way to go!

Also, congratulations on the jogging. I am really impressed by how far you have come. Keep up the good work!


Jelly Belly on 01/28/2003:
Hey girl! Have you tried the flavored waters from Walmart? You could put lemon in your water or just a dash of real kool-aid in your water will punch it up a notch. Great job on the exercise!

pastagal on 01/28/2003:
It is hard to get use to drinking diet soda or sugar free stuff,but its like anything,takes time,start out slow and you can do it;} hope you have a great day today!

breakaway on 01/28/2003:
Very impressive entry today! Your doing great and not having that soda after 5pm is a terrific Idea. I usually go till 7 and have my last one then...but then find I can't fall asleep at night and end up staying up till 1am. I don't know how long caffine usually stays in your body but maybe it's just in my head.

Keep up the great exercise, your going strong and your sure going to make your goal this way!!


ladybug20 on 01/29/2003:
Hi There! Great job on geting in your exercise. I too find if I work out early in the morning, I'm hungry all day. I feel like I could eat non stop for the whole day!! LOL Keep up the good work! Talkto you soon! Sherri :]

SoccerMom on 01/29/2003:
Congrats on jogging for 6 months now! Sounds like you're still doing very well with your exercising. I'm glad to be getting back into it, too. I feel so much better today, after working out again.

You have a great day!

That talk about the Mobile Home was just a thought, if I was reall going to do it, it would be a houseboat. Do you know where I could go in a boat from where I live on the Hudson River. Just travelling north to the Mohawk river, I'd be in the Erie Canal which would take me all the way across New York to Buffalo and into Lake Erie, from there I could get to the Mississippi river. How far West I could get is something I'd have to reseach. Just imagine not having a permanent address, and no one would know where you were unless you told them. The more I think about it the better it sounds.
