Missed the challenge mark on the food front--had leftovers I didn't want to trash.

I completely skipped my exercise on Tuesday. I still had a lingering headache and neckache that kept on shifting and it actually shifted to each ankle once or twice. I know that sounds ridiculous--I got a good night's sleep and felt completely different in the morning--I was beginning to think I had like chronic fatigue syndrome starting or something. It was this dull neverending headache. So I hope I've learned the value of a complete day off from exercise!

Freeze those leftovers and use them for future meals/snacks.

Hi:

Thanks for leaving a comment to my post. I remember reading your entries along with those of Pastagal, Herb, Stellastar and a few others whose names escape me. I used to be (actually still am) TweetieCat. I'm the one whose job was eliminated after 17 1/2 years of working at Nabisco. The company was acquired by Kraft and they were going through a massive layoff, etc. I was home for about 1 1/2 years and recently went back to work about six months ago. I love my new job, have a great boss and am very happy being where I am. I hope you have a great day. You seem to be doing well, sticking to your plan of action. As they say, one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. Keep up the good work but don't overdo.

Regards,

TheMother (alias TweetieCat)

Thanks so much for youe comments in my diary and reminding me about exercise. I think it will help me in so many ways! Keep up the great job your doing~!

Hey, Biscotti, where are you? I hope you're feeling better. This is Wednesday and you haven't been here for a few days. I'm just concerned. Hope to hear from you soon.

Well Kiddoes and Kiddettes, it's time for a 3-day challenge (3DC) for little ol' me--I've gotta get something going here before I completely backslide. It's great to be in the 150s still, but that was never my ultimate goal and every time I look in a full-length mirror I'm impressed at how far I've come, but I know in the back of my mind that I can go a little farther. I can't look much farther than one day. I think it's important to stay in the moment and to be prepared for my good food choices. So, here I go--again!

I pretty much haven't entered anything in Fitday for the last several days, so it's not noted here. It's a huge drag to go back more than a couple days. It is duly noted in my trusty little notebook, however:-)

I've been fighting the water drinking and a headache that seems to come and go. On the other hand, on my jog I take the same route for the
20 min routine, and I'm unconsciously going a little farther each time--woo-hoo! Distance is really not my goal at this time (although I need to do a 12-min test soon to see where I'm at fitness-wise). I did get in the Emergency Workout 2 times last week.

Goals for 3DC: 100 oz water, jog daily, pre-bkfst ex 40-60 min, do Emergency Workout at least once; Food--> Eat no more than 1800 cal, 40g total fat.

Have a good one!

Soon2BThin on 08/27/2003:
You're doing great!! I'm really envying you right now, all that jogging! Keep it up!


inmorning on 08/28/2003:
Glad to see you are still plugging along. Good luck on your 3 day challenge.

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;
70 oz water

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!

I see you're still working on your goals. Good for you, Biscotti! I'm cheering for you, gal!

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!
