For my activity: My Micro-Mini Boot Camp; Walk 20 min

Today I added a little reg coffee to my morning cup of fun because the decaf alone tasted awful--weak. I didn't feel like complaining. I'm thinking someone didn't change out the coffee from the previous batch and ran the next batch over used grounds. (First non-decaf I've had since 7.15, BTW.) I knew pretty quickly that I'd had regular coffee. The addition didn't improve the taste much, but I drank it anyway. My inner addict loved it apparently:-)

Plus it made me write this tedious entry--haha!

I'm interested in doing a few days of juicing just to see if I can re-align my palate (or whatever). Even a couple of homemade juices a day would probably help. I did this last month for a couple of days and it really killed my sweet tooth. I gradually allowed it back and have been off to the races with sweets lately.

Have a great week Biscotti!! Good luck with the juicing :)


hollybelle on 08/19/2013:
Caffeine! You have done well, though. Caffeine and sugar - my two vices! Well, those and cursing, I guess! I think I have been able to forego sugar lately because of all the fruit I've been eating - natural sugar, etc so the juice may do the trick for you - although I find juice does not fill me up commiserate with the calories it contains.

biscottibody59 on 08/20/2013:
I suspect what the juice was doing last month was not that it was a sub for sweets or that it filled me up, but that it was concentrated nutrition. IOW, it was giving my body something that I REALLY needed, so the cravings were beginning to be eliminated.

Pure speculation on my part:-)


OhioRaven on 08/19/2013:
HEY, Biscuit. I never told you but a long time ago, your posts got me to switch from regular instant to decaf instant. I don't really miss it. But at work I add in some dandelion tea and that gives me a kick that gets me started on a pretty good day. Hope you get a kick out of your day too. See ya, Biscuit.

biscottibody59 on 08/20/2013:
But, do you have any issues with coffee? If I had no problems with it (like I did years ago), I wouldn't care. I don't recall your mention of it in your diary, though I may have missed it.

Onward and upward:-)

I went ahead and included today's results of my boot camp experiment below. I'm not one bit sore anywhere today. Not sure what I'll do with it after today. Maybe I'll try to do it every other day and perhaps add one exercise next go round. I feel good about it--I get it out of the way--that's that!

I would never do wt trng first thing in the morning, but this is probably the closest I'll get to that. This workout doesn't take long, and as I build endurance I anticipate cutting the time between sets.

Tues: Walk 15 min
Wed: My Micro-Mini Bootcamp (Pre-bkfst); Walk 10 min

I was up a bit (.8#) on Tuesday's weigh-in, but I'll leave the number where it is for now.

Mowed, etc in the heat Saturday--I usually wait 'til about 6p to start, but I had much more to do and didn't want to break it up into two days. I'd only had 4 hrs sleep the night before.

At any rate, I paced myself so that all the mowing, etc took about 3 times longer than usual--I'm not exaggerating. Still it was a positive exercise to remind me that I'm out of shape. And if I don't get after solving my weak core and endurance soon and consistently, I won't be doing my own yardwork this time next year.

Just stating the facts. Again.

Signed,
Complaining Complainer:-)


With that I began a M-W-F early morning boot-campish experiment. I did it Monday and yesterday. It worked quite well. My thinking is that if I can kick my *ss involuntarily in the heat to make my stupid lawn look presentable, then I can most certainly kick my own *ss on a smaller scale by doing several sets of exercises. It's limited to this week. I may do it or modify it next week.

Just a little sore starting on Tuesday afternoon in chest and hip flexors. No sore chest on Wednesday. Hip flexors status after doing the routine again yesterday--extremely sore. Not sore at all anywhere else. Today I'm minimally sore only in hip flexors.

So my hip flexors (mostly just the front of the thigh joint area) haven't been worked much by anything I've been doing before now. It may just be part of the key to the lack of my endurance. The little boot camp moves are quick to get through even though I'm doing reps to my limit. I will resume wt trng at some time, but this feels like I'm building a foundation--sorely needed--haha!

Keep at it biscotti, you're slowly building up strength and endurance and will get back to where you were before!

Love the idea of mini-bootcamp sessions in the mornings three times a week. Very good idea, especially since you've been feeling like you need to work on your core.

P.S. I entertained the thought of paying someone else to do my yardwork for me next year. In fact, in the spring this may just happen - to start the season off right :)

hollybelle on 08/06/2013:
Thanks for the comments about the vaccum. Time will tell, I guess. As for the yard - dry weather is the worst. Usually by now our yards are "crunchy" but we have had so much rain that they are mostly "weedy" and crazy looking - on top of that fungus killed my cherry tree in a week - it was dead in 5 days by the time I noticed the symnptoms! Hang in there on the goals - you are doing great!


Umpqua on 08/06/2013:
Tiny habits sounds like a good practice, I feel like I'm always more successful when I break things up into manageable chunks!


OhioRaven on 08/06/2013:
Isn't that what little tiny Nuns wear ?


OArecovery on 08/06/2013:
I also love the tiny habits idea- small little bits rather than giant mountains makes it all much easier. I might just apply this in my own life! Good luck!

You're doing well on the caffeine. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.


greengirl on 08/04/2013:
I think I might adopt your challenge Biscotti, apart from the cardio. I'm in too much pain from both my knees and my ankles to think of doing any sustained exercise. Look after yourself :-) x


OhioRaven on 08/05/2013:
Be careful on your ladder while cleaning the gutters. I think mine needs a cleaning too.


Umpqua on 08/05/2013:
Cleaning your gutters pretty much ensures it won't rain ;) I really hope it does since I know how badly you need it. I hope you have a good one!


hollybelle on 08/05/2013:
How's that Peace of Mind goal going, B? As for me, depends on the day, depends on the hour!!


V on 08/05/2013:
Well usually washing my car(a rare event, LOL) usually brings on the rain, you should try it!! Hope that you had a good weekend Biscotti :)


legcramps on 08/06/2013:
Want to come clean my gutters when you're done with yours? You'll need an extention ladder. Just saying.


Maria7 on 08/06/2013:
I see that you have been doing real well. Hope you are having a good day. :-)

Wed & Thur & Fri: Walk 15 min

Just an entry to say I'm present:-) This month is shaping up to be ALL HOT (ALL THE TIME). I never really became acclimated like I had in previous years. I think it was probably because it took so long this year for the heat to hit and then we had a couple of cool spells. The 100sF are fully in force with no real breaks in sight. (Maybe next weekend, but it probably won't last long.)

Generally I embrace the heat. I think my overall poor fitness (which I'm bummed about) is part of why I'm not getting it this year. There's all of August left to stop the slide because who knows what September will bring. There are no guarantees!

I'm going to just keep putting one foot in front of the other and holding myself accountable. I don't know of another way. I'm not overdoing anything by any means when I do get in a workout (walking or whatever). I don't think it's about discouragement, except for when I make a plan and don't follow through for days like I have been doing lately.

I think it's distraction, and that's not going to change. I have many distractions--who doesn't. Some are legit and some I have no business paying any attention to. That's just human--isn't it? Hahaha!

Goals for Open-Ended Challenge:
1) All veg, starch, greens and no added fat or oil 2) 1 oz nuts/day optional 3) Fruit: 2-3 pieces daily 4) No coffee whatsoever (including decaf) 5) At least an hour of cardio daily.

I'm in the same boat as you with exercise, I'm just not feeling up to it. That WILL change though!
