For my activity: Walk 20 min

I had coffee yesterday--well about 3 oz of reg with the rest decaf. (It's a hard thing to turn my back on.)

At lunch I had some cheese enchiladas and they had some meat in the sauce--this wasn't major under the circumstances. The best choice at this place probably would have been corn tortillas with avocado. Their whole beans have a little meat cooked in--not too bad, but they're horribly oversalted. I skipped that option and I know their refried beans have lard so that wasn't a good option either.

Still didn't get my wt trng done. Moving on.

I was looking through the Esselstyn book (with new eyes) and there's a dish made with napa cabbage I'd like to try. I made Safe Soup from the book. Next time, I'll leave out the tomato sauce, half the recipe so there's room for the kale and use butter beans instead of blackeyed peas. It calls for lima beans. It's a bit more like stew than soup to me.

That may be because it calls for mixing it all together and cooking it for 2 hours. I thought that was too long. Nothing in it takes 2 hours to cook and I don't like overcooked anything. I left the kale out because my pot is too small--it just fit the 2 gallons of ingredients without the kale. It's good with sriracha sauce drizzled on top.

We'll be eating out tomorrow night - first real meal out doing this plan. It's a specialty sushi place that does a lot of creative veggie rolls, so we should be OK. Your plan for the soup/stew sounds good - Esselstyn's recipes are kind of lacking I think and need some tweaking and embellishment. JMO. Sriracha makes everything better!

Man does that soup/stew sound yummy :P ITA with Umpqua, Sriracha gives anything that extra pizazzz! Have a fantastic weekend Biscotti :)

I weighed in this morning and am down 2#--can you say, "Water weight?"

I took my blood pressure Tues night and it was sky-high at least for me. (Makes sense with the apparent water weight I lost.) It was fine yesterday morning. I'm going to monitor it for a month or so. I did this for several months a couple of years ago because I have a tendency to have white-coat hypertension. I don't want to be on medication for something that I should be able to control with what I put in my mouth, my activity and especially my sleep. (Untreated sleep apnea causes hypertension.)

I haven't paid much attention to salt lately because I don't salt my food at home as a rule. I do salt tomatoes and salad. Eating out is what gets me. And apparently it doesn't take much now past menopause. Salt-sensitive hypertension is pretty common post-menopause.

I had no idea how sleep deprived I was, therefore no wt trng again. Unless the bottom falls out and I have absolutely no time, I should get it in today. I don't normally check my running sleep average, but for the last 2 weeks it's 7 hours/night. Interesting!

Congratulation on your loss. Well worth doing the work instead of going to pills. Have a great day.

Well done on the loss...might not be water! Good workout. I've got to have salt on certain foods but then my BP is normal.

For my activity: Walk 45 min

I'm up a little on my weigh-in today. It's just as well I didn't get in my wt trng yesterday--I'll have a better workout with the better rest I had last night. And I can continue to validate the changes I'm making:-) Sounds good doesn't it--time will surely tell!

This weekend begins Daylight Saving Time (US).

A few years ago I mentioned here in my diary a woman who used to walk in my neighborhood. She'd go with a friend or by herself, but she would get out in nearly every kind of weather. I stopped her one day when I was going through my "pre-sleep apnea" junk and asked her what she ate to stay so slim and active. (Many people would think she was underweight and maybe she was, a little.) She said she'd given up meat some years before and ate fruit/veg. She was on no medication and really had no complaints when she went to the dr.

She ended up in the hospital at some point and it turned out that she was 92 when I talked to her. I wouldn't have brought up her age anyway--but I figured she was MAYBE 75.

I learned recently that she is very sensitive about her age after I talked to another neighbor (who is her fairly close friend). She didn't want anyone to have pre-conceived notions re: her age. I guess it doesn't matter what age we are for that feeling! (The 90-something lady is now in a nursing home--but reportedly she's still going fairly strong.)

I think I'm going to start telling people I'm 68 (even if they don't ask--haha)--so they can marvel at how young I look!

Wow! I've met a few women who were 90+ and you never would have known it! Good idea to add a few years so they can marvel at how great you look. I think I'll start saying I'm 80! LOL.

Daylight savings already? Hmm..guess I'd better keep that in mind for when I Skype my family.


grannyannie on 03/05/2013:
Just checked. We usually do this a week apart, but I see you do it on the 10th and we don't do it till the 31st.


thenewMLE on 03/05/2013:
It's amazing how differently people age! It's really noticeable when you go to a school or family reunion and you see people that you KNOW are your age and wonder what do they do differently. (good or bad!) I can tell you the fact that the lady stayed active with her walking really improved her chances of longevity. The sad thing is when the mind doesn't stay as healthy. One of my aunts in the pic has the beginnings of Alzheimer's and her mother (my grandmother) died of dementia. She was thin and physically healthy but her mind was gone. So sad when my other grandmother was as sharp as a tack, still doing her taxes when she died at 95, but was overweight and suffered with her ankles and knees. Thanks for the daylights saving time reminder! I'm looking forward to it so that I can resume liking my after work bike rides and not being so stressed with the darkness.


Puddles on 03/05/2013:
Great idea I might just tag on 10 years. Anything for a boost of ego. lol My grandmother lived to be 96 and she lived alone and one week everything started to go and she died what a life she had. A strong Irish old broad with 9 kids and lived on a farm. I was raised on that farm and remember her very well. She died when I was 30 yrs old. They say I have a little bit LOL LOL of her stuborness LOL WHO ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT LOL . We are only as old as we think we are. Our mind has a wonderful gift of keeping us young. Have a great day.


V on 03/05/2013:
Wowsers on the lady's age, god bless her and may she always be 75 at heart <3 I am pretty excited about DST :) Well maybey not losing an hour of sleep but I will adjust ;) LOL I guess i could use my bra but my tits are so small now so it is just as bad as tying the band together. hahahahah Have a good one Biscotti :)


Umpqua on 03/06/2013:
Wow, amazing and I can only aspire to be like your neighbor. I do remember you mentioning her and I'm glad she's doing so well. I hope you have an excellent day!

Forget mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you're going to do now and do it. Today is your lucky day. --Will Durant

For my activity: Walk 25 min

It's been close to 90*F here--I was lucky to soak up some rays.

I took time out to cut out coffee again, for one day. I'm like a really dumb beanbag that just can't get it. But I'm going for it again. So I skipped it on Saturday--suffered the effects (extreme tiredness). I kept thinking it would pass. Eventually I had to get some sleep and I napped for over 2 hrs--still didn't think I was THAT tired. Slept fine that night. So yesterday what did I do--had some coffee of course. Granted it was maybe 2/3rds of an actual measuring cup and the rest decaf--the usual for me lately.

I'm off of it again at this moment and for the foreseeable future--no exceptions. I hate to call it this, but it's like a gateway drug. One cup on one day doesn't amount to much, but it certainly can allow me to derail eating properly. Sometimes I can't just let it go the next day. And I got a cup today--same deal. The problem is that I only slept about 4 hrs last night. It's all restorative--but not enough. (It has that much of an effect on me.) I get used to it over a few days and my sleep evens out. I'm better off without it. (And if you've read me for the last few years, yes this is more of the same.)

I'm beginning not to identify as a coffee drinker--hard to separate myself from that identity. It's a learning experience. So much for learning--if I were an animal in a zoo, I'd be the one with a bloody forehead because I think my behavior amounts to repeatedly beating my head against a brick wall.

I'm just going to move on and plan, prepare and do much better tomorrow!

Umpqua on 03/04/2013:
Thanks again for your support, I hope you know it means a lot to me. I am most definitely a coffee drinker and I can appreciate your challenge to identify as a non-coffee drinker. I'm lucky that it doesn't affect my sleep or eating habits - yet. I've considered dropping caffeine along the way once I'm entrenched in this diet - I expect I'll have a lot more energy after eating this way for a few weeks and may not feel the need for coffee. I hope it gets easier for you.


OhioRaven on 03/05/2013:
Hi, Biscuit. Sorry I got to you late. Thanks for the comments. Good luck with your new, Caffeine Free self.


thenewMLE on 03/05/2013:
That damn coffee is like a drug for some. I need it too and I have struggled to drop from 5 cups a day to 1 really big one in the morning. But along with it dropped my fluid intake. My orthopedist says coffee doesn't even count in your fluid intake because of the way it is or isn't absorbed into the body. I'm still struggling to get my water up and my sleep seems to be affected too. Hope you kick that coffee to the curb and replace it with maybe exotic caffeine free teas?? have a good one!

biscottibody59 on 03/05/2013:
Ah, those were the days--at least a couple of pots of coffee--haha!

For my activity: NordicTrack 24min/2.3 mi; Walk 22 min

I can't say how glad I am that I got that first wt trng session (circuit workout) out of the way--I'm mildly sore in all the right places. I feel like it made me stand up straight even though I wasn't feeling particularly hunched over.

My mother was big on good posture and I pretty much keep my shoulders back unconsciously because of that. And if I notice I'm hunched over, I stand up or hold my head up to alleviate the sense that I'm hunched over.

Menopause has taken its toll on my muscles in the last year. Since the muscle loss is a recent phenomenon, I hope that time and sticking to a routine will get me back to normal and perhaps even better than normal! I don't think I'll ever make peace with the b*tch, menopause, but I have toned down my negativity regarding it.

Umpqua on 03/04/2013:
Thanks for the support, I knew that you of all people would understand my motivations and reasoning in trying this. I think one of the things that bothers me most is feeling like a helpless victim - medicine is failing me so far. So trying to control things from a holistic/systemic level seems like a reasonable course of action :)

RYQs: I haven't done any serious paint scraping/remodeling since before my first pregnancy - 7+ years. I've been tested for all the heavy metals - arsenic, lead, zinc, mercury, numbers are all good. Vitamins D and B12 are good, lyme test is negative. They've done some pretty extensive testing, and the mycoplasma is the only oddity.

That's amazing news on the Crohn's disease, I love hearing stories like that. I will check out the recipe link as well as Fuhrman, I've seen his name on a bunch of sites so I definitely need to read up on him. Many thanks!!

We experience stress, I suggest, when we lose confidence in our ability to handle relationships, either with the physical world or with each other. This loss of confidence arises from failing to control, from the breakdown of expectations, from a sense of being at the mercy of unpredictable and indomitable forces, from complexities and contradictions we cannot master. --Peter Marris

I'm up 5# on my weigh-in today--not bad for how far off the mark I've been with food and exercise.

I decided to join the rinky-dink fitness center. There are bigger free weights that I can use when I get past 17ish pounds on my own dumbbells (the adjustable type). There's a station for dips/vert knee raises, a few treadmills and ellipticals, and various and sundry recumbent and other Lifecycle bikes. There's a bunch of weight machines I'll never use, but overall if I can end up getting over there several days a week I'll be satisfied.

For my activity: Short Walk

Happy March--hope it's a good month for us all! (I just love a new month:-)

No dizziness yesterday, so I'm pretty sure it was a combination of sleep deprivation (though I didn't feel tired, which is weird) and MSG.

Still not at posted weight, but will post whatever shows up tomorrow. I have eleven chances to complete circuit workouts this month--we'll just see how that goes. (Gotta keep it out there as a THING come what may.) I'm not horribly optimistic about getting all of them in. I changed my goal to what is a Normal BMI Weight (BMI Calculator). We'll see how that goes too.

Onward and upward!

Happy Thursday!

I had two bouts of dizziness/vertigo yesterday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. (Nothing like what Umpqua is going through by any means.) The feeling hearkened back to the months before I was diagnosed with heart blocks at first (abnormalities that show up on an EKG--NOT blocked arteries) and then later sleep apnea. My blocks don't present any symptoms--the dizziness isn't tied to them. I never got a good explanation why the blocks showed up, but as long as they stay in their "benign" corner--I don't let them wig me out--much!

Anyway, I wasn't feeling all that tired even by the time I went to bed very early. But I fell asleep quickly and slept soundly and woke up refreshed. I didn't get dizzy on my walk last evening and morning, so I'm completely bumfuzzled as to what it was other than the "non-tired tiredness." The day before I had some food that undoubtedly had MSG--the lovely and talented "Chick-Fil-A"--Hail CFA, full of MSG--haha! (I've always been sensitive to MSG--though I don't get the typical "MSG headache" from it anymore.)

My body doesn't seem to like me going from ultra-healthy to (somewhat) ultra-junky. (A brand-new revelation with recent food/diet experiences.) I guess it's like pick one--quit jacking me around! And it makes me pay. IOW, I can imagine my body saying (if it could talk--haha), "Feed me one way or the other, or I'm going to make you pay, dammit!"

I've read of others going through sort of a "revenge" when they've been eating mainly a starch- and veg-based, low-fat diet for awhile. But it's typically a gut reaction--pain, diarrhea, etc.

Just my current theory on that one:-)
