Great job with your circuit training, hopefully it will be nice and cool for your walk this evening..Have a good evening as well :)


thenewMLE on 10/17/2012:
Glad you slept a little more! MIL fights with the CPAP machine, but she really does sleep deeper with it. By fighting, I mean she had trouble finding a mask that she didn't pull off while trying to sleep and she doesn't like packing it up to spend the night out. She has lived alone for the last 11 years so quite often one of her 4 boys will invite her stay (including us) for a couple days at a time. Since the machine, she will eat with us about 3 nights a week, but hasn't slept over in awhile. Are you having any success with the caffeine reduction? Hope you have a great day!

Nice job over the weekend! Have a great week.


thenewMLE on 10/15/2012:
Good job on moving those numbers down!! Have a great day! Out of curiosity, do you struggle with sleeping so only get 5 hours or is that all that you have scheduled out of the day? I would be a mess at work on only 5 hours of sleep and that was the case several years ago when I was fighting with night sweats and just my mind not shutting off. I do so much better with 8 -10 hours but I am no longer able to sleep in late. I have had the opportunity only once a week (Saturday) but my body clock just can't set itself to have Saturday off!!!


V on 10/15/2012:
Nice and steady decline on the scale, way to go Biscotti :) Here's to another successful week!


Umpqua on 10/15/2012:
Great work moving the scale! I'm not loyal to a particular brand of valerian root (I have Target's brand in the house atm) but about 900-1,000 mg does the trick for me.

Moving on. No weigh-in yesterday, but was up a pound today.

I think it's going to be at least a week before my body sorts out the no-coffee thing. So cutting caffeine can possibly cause insomnia--I didn't know. Not the reaction I've had in the past. Good to have a possible explanation (article: Caffeine Withdrawal). No headaches this time around. Honestly I'd rather have a headache than insomnia. I've really never had a night (before or after using CPAP therapy) like the other night.

Sorry to hear you're dealing with insomnia, I had not idea that was a side effect either. Have you tried valerian root? It usually works for me when I'm having an occasional sleepless night. Have a good one!


V on 10/14/2012:
Wow didn't know that quitting can keep you from sleeping, sorry that you are have insomnia.. Hope you get in a good night's sleep this evening :)

For my activity: Airdyne 15 min (pre-bkfst); Walk 35 min 

I'm down .2# today. I only had decaf coffee with sugar in lieu of any milk or coconut creamer. Then I had a McD's HF sundae (the choc--caffeinish). I really only wanted the chocolate--can't stand that soft serve except as a vehicle for chocolate--haha! And I had a MtnDew baja blast--small (has caffeine, but not much). I'm just using it as a vehicle to cut back--I don't have to keep any at home. I was going to go with reg coffee at home, but decided (along with miracle of procrastination) to skip it. Funny how procrastination can also encompass a decision:-)

The MD baja blast is sooo sweet (sickly), but doable for a couple of days. It's like the drink they give you for a glucose tolerance test (definitive test for diabetes). That one is pure dextrose if I'm not mistaken--it's horrible.

I will track my sleep along with this--helps with the motivation to stay on the straight and narrow--and report how that goes after a week or so. I'm looking for a pattern on that note.

Supper was on plan: 2 cups of mustard greens (with a few splashes of vinegar) and a svg (1/3 c) of oats + flaxmeal (abt 1T) + abt 1/3 c frzn org blueberries.

grannyannie on 10/12/2012:
Aye, biscuits are cookies. In the UK cookies are only the ones that are thick and chewy like a big chocolate chip. Crunchy ones are always biscuits.

Have an awesome day!

I'm down 2.6# today, and with that I'm going to start weighing in daily for a little while. Part of the drastic drop is because yesterday I weighed before my "solid elimination ritual" haha!

liza36 on 10/11/2012:
I've gotten back on the scale daily as of this week too. Being off for weeks has gotten me in trouble!

I can't really tell if sleep is improved since the elimination of caffeine/diet coke. I have a lot on my mind, super stressed about work, etc., so I don't sleep that great anyway. I'm tired all the time. I crave a good night's rest.


thenewMLE on 10/11/2012:
I find that my weight will hit a low, hold it for days, fluxuate up and down until it hits a new low and then holds that for days. I wanted to stop weighing every morning, but I was afraid I would miss my low!!! I know that is stupid, but the daily weighing has kept me honest on eating because I don't want to blow it. But some days I am totally clean and it still goes up .5 - 1.5 pounds at a time. At one point I weighed before and after solid elim and had no weight change and that just made me not trust my new scale!! Anyway, keep on working hard and your results will show! Have a great day!

I've decided to get on with it. I'll focus on the same food and exercise goals of the previously mentioned 30-Day Dealio. I just may not keep count of days at this point. Long-term I'd like to be caffeine-free (again). If at first you don't succeed, try try again!

Biscotti, I KNOW you can do it! Stay well, stay strong! You can lose those pounds fairly easily if you just put them on. Waterweight?

I can't live without coffee, i find. At least for now.... I have headaches and the boost of energy that it provides in the morning is so essential to me....


V on 10/09/2012:
RYC LOL!! I totally agree.. hahahahaha I tried to leave you a pic of Arnie back in his bodybuilding day..Man was he ever hot but alas the King of toolbags..LOL Anyhoo I know you can do this Biscotti,as long as the caffeine is not affecting your health then maybe you should take it as you go..I know how hard it is to break the addiction, but for me the choice was easy because I didn't like the feeling of not knowing if I ODed on caffeine or I was truly having a heart attack.. I am pretty sure if that wouldn't of happened, I would still be partaking in my pot a day habit.. Much success to you! Have a great evening :)


grannyannie on 10/10/2012:
You CAN do it, Biscotti! Just hang in there and never give up.


thenewMLE on 10/10/2012:
Go Girl!!! You can do this!! I have a suggestion on the caffeine: if it is from coffee, start substituting 1 part of the coffee grounds with decaf. Continue to decrease the regular stuff and add in the decaf until you are all decaf. Hubby and I had to quit the caffeine for his blood pressure and we did it slowly so we had no headaches. The soft drinks were another story. We tried to drink water WITH the soft drinks but I don't take in that much liquid well and I don't care for water. He did well with the soft drink swap over and went straight into water, I had to morph into caffeine free soft drinks first. Now I am NO soft drinks and all water with lemon or lime and a little SF syrup for flavor. But my point is to go cold turkey will cause withdrawals. We feel better caffeine free now!! Good Luck!!


inmorning on 10/10/2012:
Argh that caffine is a bugger to get rid of. Try to get a bunch of cranberry juice (not cocktail but 100%). If you drink several glasses of that over 2-3 days, it flushes out the system pretty well. I used to tell that to my tobacco cessation students and it really helps, so I tried it when getting off caffine and it helped there too. Have a great day.


Umpqua on 10/10/2012:
I'm with you biscotti, I've put on a few pounds and it's time to get back on track. We can do this!


liza36 on 10/10/2012:
Try, try again...yes, that's what I'm doing for the millionth time.

I can say I'm successfully caffeine free for 3 months now. The last time I quit it, it lasted only 2 months. So I'm encouraged I'll stick with it. Good luck to you!

thenewmle on 10/08/2012:
Glad to see you back! Lets get going! Good job on consistent walking. While I was walking I carried a pair of 2 pound weights and did some repetitive random lifts while I walked - kind of like a 2 for 1 in the walking time! Our weather cooled down to the 70's and I actually needed a headband on my ears to prevent any earache while we rode tonight. Have a great evening!

For my activity:
Mon: Walk 40 min

Wed: Walk 10 min
Thur: Short Walk

Tomorrow will begin Day 1 of 30 to function within these limits: 1) Starch-based, no added fat, plenty of vegetables 2) Drink decaf coffee 3) At least 60 min/day activity.

Food will be centered on sweet potatoes and greens, oats (plus fruit, flaxmeal, bran) for breakfast, brown rice (short grain for me), quinoa and the like. No high-fat whole plant foods like avocados or olives. The exception to that will be the addition of nuts--about an oz/day of almonds or pecans if I feel like it. I will also include 2-3 svgs of fruit daily.

I will have some challenging situations, but for the most part I think I'm prepared to get this going and keep it going. My head is completely wrapped around it:-)

I checked my body fat and it's holding just at what is posted above from June. My measurements today are thus:
Rt Arm ::11 , Rt Wrist :: 6-1/8, Rt Leg :: 24.5, Rt Calf :: 15, Chest :: 36, Waist :: 35, Hip :: 42.5, Abd :: 40.25

The cravings will go within about three days. I'll be eating 40-50g of fiber/day. My poop will hardly smell if at all. And I'll lose a considerable amount of weight.

Sometime, I plan to read up on you for the last few years. I have really missed seeing your posts. You seem to be so determined and disciplined. I guess a big reason I remember you so much. Hope you have a great day.

Hi Biscotti, I hope you are doing well!

Well hello there Biscotti! Here's to another successful week for you :)

I actually don't need a phone, but my family insists I should have one in case of emergency. So I decided to get an Iphone because they are cheaper than the other smart phone options around here. There are nicer and sleeker ones here, lots of choices. The iphone was the cheapest (and the least glamorous)of them.

I hope all is well with you, Biscotti! Cheers!

Thanks for the comments and I do appreciate them, very thoughtful. I don't think that I'm a candidate for a vegetarian diet but I do like vegetables and was eating mainly vegetables and fruits for over a week before i left the states. I did feel good but I'm not so consistant here, more eating out and not on a real schedule. But seeing that I probably won't be here for much longer,no reason I can't implement it again.In the end though I guess it may be more genetic and not based on diet. After hearing from my Dr I'll figure out a plan.

Good on the walking...I've been trying to get more walking in as well. :-)


grannyannie on 09/12/2012:
Hope you enjoyed your walk. Have a great day.

Yea, it gets very annoying when some injury makes me take it easy against my will! I heard that about Andy and Djokovic playing when they were 11! All the papers here are now predicting he's going to propose to his girlfriend of 8 or 9 years. A bit presumptuous! Would love to go the celebration they'll have in his home village.


selina on 09/12/2012:
You are right, I need a vacation from all of this, haha! Have a great day, Biscotti!

RYC: Well, you hide it well. Or does that say something about me that I think you are disciplined and determined:-P ? Everytime I see your body fat content I am reminded of a stupid sitcom I used to watch and there was this guy that had whatever amount of bodyfat that his docs were giving him a hassel over and he says to them, "I prefer to think of myself as --% not bodyfat!" Just puts a smile on my face :-O

About the coronary test- it was a Coronary Computed Tomography Angiogram. I requested tests to see what the status of my arteries, also I have a rapid heartbeat at times. I dont know if I would have had all of these tests in the states but since it was offered here I went for the tests just didn't realize how invasive this test was. So, yes , may not have been necessary but at least I will have a good handle on my present coronary health before I start taking statins.And it may give me more incentive to shed more of this weight.

Have a great week!

RYC People who normally post daily or nearly every day haven't been around much. I know some has to do with the start of a new school year and being busy.

Thanks for your comments on sleeping pills. I'm not opposed to them if it means getting a decent amount of sleep. Like last nightI woke up with leg cramps at 2 am & took a pill. Not sure what else to do. Trying not to take one every day though.


Maria7 on 09/10/2012:
It was cool this morning here, too....LOVE IT! Also, a nice cool breeze blowing off and on during the day today. :-)
