I got a little done on my kitchen--what little I did is acceptable though not perfect--I can live with it for now:-) Not so great on the fitness--I feel like the rug is pulled out from under me if I don't keep up with it. Stumbling--yes! I will get there.

I ran out of my Numi green tea stash, so I ended up getting some Lipton green tea, which I hadn't had in several years--it's still as bitter as hell--awful. Since quitting coffee I've been drinking the Numi brand.

I am sure your kitchen is spic and span by now and a stellar wgt training session under your belt :) RYC yeah i am really stressing about the potential extra work load :( I went to all parties that may be involved in this nonsense to assure them that I am not cool with what management's plans are..Even suggested if they don't answer their phones for the call and show up as usual, they technically can't send them home..Taking money out of other people's pocket doesn't sit well with me :( Hope you had a great weekend :)

RYC- Thanks for the idea. I am going to get some bananas today. V gave me a good idea too but yours will help right now. I hope you are doing well.

Gee I've been posting a long time here--my first post was 11.10.2000 (a Friday). I came back in Jan '01 for a couple of entries and then skipped out until June '01 (when Kyrin dragged me back--thanks Kyrin!) and have been posting quite regularly since.

Where are you? Halley, Rader, PastaGal, Herb, Golightly, MichelleP, Garlic, Pinkuspettuty--those are some really long-ago diarists who haven't posted in years, to name a few that I remember.

I've dragged out my NordicTrack (skier) again. It's something I was using waaay back then too. My observation after getting on it for the first time in a long time (early Feb this year) is that my body has missed it--haha! So far I'm limited in using the arm portion except for less than a minute at a time. I keep it at the first level of elevation. It's a breath of fresh air.

Thanks for the article! I read the last one you sent me... it's definitely really interesting! I did go out and purchase a multi-vitamin and some other things... so hopefully that'll help even me out. I'll take a look at this article today! Enjoy your day!!

Great job with the activities. I am sure it is nice to break up the workouts by adding Nordic Track. Have an awesome week Biscotti :)

I remember many of those old diarists as well. Miss them!

It's so nice to hear you are enjoying your nordic track again. I imagine that's how I'll feel when I get back on the treadmill. I'm hoping anyway, since that might help with my lack of motivation. Anyway, keep doing what you're doing.

RYC: Yes, you're probably right about my sleep patterns, and I should attempt to do something about it. I'm not sure of what, if any, sleep studies could be done, but maybe at my next doc appt i'll ask the question.


IndependentEm93 on 11/07/2012:
The article was great!


skinnygrlwithin on 11/08/2012:
It's interesting that you ask about Vitamin D... I just had some blood work done and they indicated to me that my Vitamin D level was low. I will have to read the article you sent. I have been taking a Vit. B Complex and Iron, I also just added Magnesium and a multi-vitamin where I get 100% of my daily D needs.

I'll assume that the article indicates that D plays a role in mood... and with that said I would have to say that if I had to guess, my emotions are probably a combination of my unhappiness at my current job, feeling like I'm just wasting my life away in this little cubical accomplishing nothing, letting all the hard work I put in at law school go to waste, the way I look, and we'll add my D deficiency to the list.

Thank you though for the article, I'm always very interested in how our deficiencies play a role in our mood and behavior.

thanks for the creamer recommendation! I'm always looking to reduce my dairy consumption so perhaps I will try the soy creamer! I'm anticipating an "adjustment" in flavor so as long as its not bad, I'm pretty confident I can adjust!


thenewMLE on 10/30/2012:
OMG!! Turkey, gravy, MAYO and fresh white bread = serious yum! But honestly I was very happy yesterday with my cold dark meat dipped in the gravy. It just has so much flavor! My hubby makes the best gravy - it's kind of thick and a little sweet. I just wish they would have tried to give up the rice and the stuffing - just once and see that it was still a satisfying meal. Good job on your weight training. It's that successful feeling that makes you want to keep it up. How's the green tea going?

Thanks for the votes of confidence everyone--I know I can sound so much like a broken record. The truth is that giving up isn't an option, so maybe a broken record isn't so bad:-)

I wish I could tell you how unexpectedly good I felt after finishing my wt trng. I guess I just did:-) It was like someone threw a bucket of "I feel sensational--woo-hoo!" over me--haha! The last time I felt that good was after a long walk taken in the afternoon abt three weeks ago. That means I was feeling pretty crummy before--weird way to confirm it.

I took my time so the whole wt trng session probably took two hours--it usually takes an hour to an hour and a half to complete. I kept my dumbbells at 8# (like the last time) for the workout and didn't overdo anything. I was also fairly surprised I was able to do all the abs work. I probably could have done more but wanted to sort of ease into it.

I'll put up a rundown of my current routine (16 sets of moves--abs contain 4 and I do them two separate times in addition to a side abs set) in another entry. It's a compact little workout that works well for me to reaffirm that I'm not a slug in human form--haha! I'm just a little sore all over today--just enough.

It was a confidence builder for sure--yee-ha!

Starting yesterday I'm subbing green tea (made with two teabags) for my morning decaf coffee. It's obviously more caffeine than decaf, though much, much less than reg coffee. And it's only for morning for me. I'll try it for a few days and see how it goes.

Tues: Nothing but a fair bit of driving
Wed: Airdyne 10 min; Walk 35 min

I'm up and down the last few days on the scale, so I'll change the above when I have a loss.

I keep intending to really get after it with my exercise/activity. Oh, those pesky intentions--at least they're persistent on this one thing:-) I'm glad I've been so active over the years, but reality says, "What have you done for me lately?" That has to be in the forefront of my mind. I can be in denial all I want that (in retrospect) menopause wasn't all that bad, but this is the time to push myself to maintain a certain level of fitness. I have the body I have--and I'm about to be up against a wall. It's very much the way things were when I was at 189# and kept having various and sundry "body warnings." And they're not the same warnings as back then.

Not to mention the fact that I only did five wt trng sessions going back to October of last year. (Getting aerobic exercise really hasn't ever been a problem, though I've been low on that too lately.) The truth is that this is the worst performance ever for wt trng for me--except for a couple of years before I hit 189#--my all-time high weight. For those couple of years I was pretty much sedentary.

I think I've lulled myself into thinking today's reality, just isn't that bad when every indication is that yes, it is that bad. I just choose to ignore it 90 percent of the time. It's very easy to do--a bad routine is still a routine:-)

I think about this a lot, but I'm hoping that putting it in words here will get me over the hump somewhat. If nothing else to continue to hold myself accountable. I don't want to find myself 3 months, 6 months or a year from now still feeling this way and letting myself off the hook for this. Everything will only get worse in another year. One last thing, to be fair I've been hyperfocused on sleep for the last couple of years. Well that's all done "in my sleep" haha. Time to shift focus and obsess about other things:-)

I'm keeping the strange (possibly not useful to anyone but me) Circuit Workout thingy below until I get six or eight workouts in a row done. The yellow highlighted dates are the only ones that were completed.

thenewMLE on 10/26/2012:
Girl, you said a mouthful! Menopause is what through me into a tail spin but probably saved me from getting too far out of control. I used to think that once I got the weight off my "work" would be done, but I now realize that it is a constant everyday "workout" to keep my body in proper functioning order. It's the foods that I choose to eat that will fuel my energy for the day. It's not about hitting goal and quitting - it's about doing something positive for ourselves everyday!! Good luck and keep up the awareness. Have a great weekend!

Scale sort of malfunctioned, and I suspected the battery. It went from one wt one time and another the next--times three--weirdly the same two different weights each time. I replaced the battery and it was back to JUST one weight after several tries, so tomorrow will probably be a more accurate weigh-in.

Two great nights of sleep in a row, but I had a small reg coffee this morning--will have to see how it hits me tonight. My progress on that is that I have not had reg coffee in the house for some time. Also that I've been to a grocery store a couple of times and resisted buying anything but decaf for my Keurig. For the taste, the decaf I'm buying for it tastes excellent. It's too bad I can't fool myself into believing it's reg, because no matter what, decaf is just kinda limp--haha!

You are zooming with the scale movement. I hope you have a nice weekend!

LOL, yes decaf is a little limp compared to regular coffee! Nice movement on the scale; have a great weekend :)

Didn't know that a low battery could have an effect on the reading! Good to know. Congratulations on the 2 good nights sleep. I know that problem.

I'm down .2# on my weigh-in.

If I wrote a book today, it would be titled Sleep: It's the Caffeine, Stupid!, which is paraphrasing James Carville during the '92 presidential campaign ("It's the economy, stupid!"). So other than continuing to count my sleep hours, I think I have arrived at an ending.

Yeah, I may have seemed like I reached that point several times, but this is different. I just have to honor the finding--easier said than done. With each test, I must say it is getting easier by little bits to change my behavior.

Hahahaha, love the title of your book..Maybe you should write one, I for one would get a copy :) Congrats on the decline on the scale. Have a great evening!


Umpqua on 10/17/2012:
I would also get a copy of your book biscotti ;) I did quite a bit of driving myself today - it's pretty tiring considering not much is involved. Congrats on your loss!!
