For my activity:
Mon-Wed: Nothing

One day at a time:-) I had two decaf coffees and a little chocolate Tuesday. Then yesterday one decaf and some chocolate. Had one decaf today and will probably have a little chocolate too. Decaf coffee rather sucks as far as I'm concerned. That's the extent of the caffeine. I got the dreaded sick headache yesterday around 11 a.m. No headache so far today, but I've had two nights of 8 hours of sleep--first time for that in awhile. Again, I'm just taking it a day at a time--so far so good!

I'd eventually like to cut out dairy entirely, but that's for another day.

I finally found and tried some red rice. It's definitelty my kind of thing because it's the short-grain variety and very similar to short-grain brown rice. I don't care for long-grain brown rice. I'm not sure how much I paid for it, but it was worth a try.

I had a little detour in my day yesterday courtesy of a very charismatic older kitten that showed up Monday. I called around to let our local lost and found know just in case someone called. Then I took it to the local no-kill shelter to see if it had a microchip. It didn't. And they were full--no vacancy:-) Fortunately I was able to bypass the public animal control shelter (I still call it the dog pound) in favor of the Humane Society, which doesn't turn any animals away.

It's farther than I'd like to drive just for a cat, but this cat would probably have not fared well. He was clearly coddled and well-cared for until someone decided they didn't want him anymore. He's young enough to get a chance to charm just the right person. It would have been my idea of a perfect cat--reminded me of one I had when I was little. My dog couldn't quite contain herself though.

Though I put him in an old cardboard box crate I had, he got out twice on the drive over there. So I finally I just let him roam around the car on the way to the shelter. He loved riding and finally settled in my lap. Just a dream of an affectionate cat. But, ya' know if 3 and 4 year old kids are occupied with their own cell phones (even just for the music/games), a kitty cat like this doesn't have half a chance. It'd probably have to be an older man or woman who likes a purring accessory to complete his or her "lap ensemble." :-)

grannyannie on 11/03/2011:
Thanks for your comments! Hang in there with the caffeine. Are you going to switch to soy milk when you give up dairy? Glad to hear you're getting good sleep now.


getmebackto150 on 11/03/2011:
awwww. that kitten sounds ADORABLE... I wish I could take him home:) Althogh we already have two kitties we rescued from the animal shelter with BIG personalities:) I have pretty much cut all dairy out of my diet and I feel AMAZING!!! I'm wondering why I never did this sooner!!


liza36 on 11/03/2011:
Lap ensemble - I love that! That was so nice of you to take the time to find a no-kill place for the cat. Someone will certainly enjoy such a likeable little feline.

Good for you for cutting out caffeine. It's pretty hard, and I'm just a diet coke drinker. I cut the diet coke a few months ago, and was good for about 2 months, then due to stress started it back up. Time to let it go once and for all.

Good sleep, now that's worth giving it up.


V on 11/03/2011:
I am sure you were tempted.I am sure the litter box was in the back of your mind as well...YUCK!!i am so happy you took the time out to take the cat to a place where it would stand a chance..I hope someone will adopt the furry fellow ;) Much luck on the caffeine detox :) Hey have you tried the red rice yet?? Just wondering how it tastes???


V on 11/03/2011:
P.S. Thank you and have a good one as well :)


Kati on 11/04/2011:
ohh that kitten... I would have kept him anyway, LOL... I'm just that kind of person. But I like you went so far to save him!!! :)


Umpqua on 11/04/2011:
Aww cute kitty! I'm glad the humane society would take him, I hate it when folks abandon their pets. I got a cat that way, an older one too. The people in the house next to my apartment moved and just left him outside. My landlord wouldn't let me take a second cat so mother in law took him and he had a long and happy retirement with her :)

Great job on the caffeine and the red rice sounds good, I'll have to check it out!


~WI~ on 11/04/2011:
Way to go on rescuing that cat! And i'm not a fan of the long grain rices either, I may give that red rice a try! Have a wonderful weekend!


thinkpositive on 11/05/2011:
You are a good person to find the cat a good home. Sounds like you are winning over the caffeine.


V on 11/07/2011:
Hey my friend that lives in Dallas said you guys had an earthquake?? I hope you fared well..Did you feel it where you live??


V on 11/08/2011:
Thanks for the info, did i mention that my friend is a bit of a drama queen?? LOL She managed to rile up a few people in the area and one of our friends in Arizona who swears that she felt tremors?? "The sky is falling!!" ;) Okay so forgive me for being way too nosy(I seriously can't help it, LOL) Wondering how goes it with the caffeine free project?? I am attempting to clean up my act with the excessive Monster intake..I haven't had one since Friday :)

Sat & Sun: Nothing

4-Day Challenge (F-S-S-M):
1) Plant-based way of eating :: no added oil :: no nuts, dairy products or coffee :: one green tea + lemon
2) 60 min activity each day

Well, today would be the last day of the challenge, but I see no reason to continue. I'm going to jump directly into cutting out caffeine. It's a gateway "food" for me. I know it's not food, but I put a food in mine--half & half or milk. So for me it's a food. Nevertheless it leads me to eat other things ideally I'd like to be avoiding. That's the long and short of it:-)

To be fair, Day 1 was pretty good, but then I went downhill pretty quickly.

I will begin my "no caffeine" trip tomorrow. That means no green tea either. No, this isn't for everyone, and I don't begrudge anyone who can handle caffeine. I think for most of us it's not problematic, until. Until it is problematic. Live it up while you can:-)

Personally I have no business kidding myself (with the particular heart and sleep issues I have) by thinking it's okay. I have found it very difficult to moderate the amount of ANYTHING with caffeine, since I started back full-force a few months ago. For anyone who doesn't know or doesn't remember, I had quit it for a time. Got shingles and eventually went fully loaded AGAIN with the caffeine.

I got to reading some entries from others struggling in the same way on the McDougall discussion board, and I could have written a couple of the random entries I read there. I have never been addicted to anything, but I am firmly convinced NOW that I'm definitely a true caffeine addict. It may sound kinda funny, but for me it's not. Not anymore.

No luck needed. I get it done or not--one day at a time:-)

Maria7 on 10/31/2011:
Hope all goes well with you on the elimination of caffeine. I went without caffeinated beverages for over a year a few years ago...as a matter of fact, I only drank water for my beverage....then after a year or maybe two of this, I gave in to tea and coffee....then it went on to caffeinated diet soft drinks.... It is easy to form new habits of caffeine addiction...which I think I definitely have again. I believe you will do real well cause you are very determined. Take care.


V on 10/31/2011:
As an all or nothing kinda girl I totally understand what you are saying..Although I no longer drink a pot of coffee per day, it was replaced with my energy drinks and supplements...I am hoping that all works out well for you!! Have a good one!


greengirl on 11/01/2011:
I'm trying my best with the caffeine too because of sleep problems. Tea is my big addiction so at home I use decaf , which I have got used to the taste of now. I can take decaf t-bags to work I suppose, but it gets more difficult when I visit people. It seems rude to take my own t-bags with me. Thanks for your support BTW biscotti. You keep it real !!


Supercheese on 11/01/2011:
Im cutting out caffeine too. I drink soda in the morning and I know its bad for u (since I use to drink not diet just regular) and boy do i feel the difference!!


hackersdiet on 11/01/2011:
You can do it! I am the wade into the water type...not the cold turkey type...so I would decrease and decrease until I stopped. But you know yourself better, so choose a method that will set you up for success! By the way, I am not a caffeine drinker. I only use caffeine to stay awake on long drives. I don't own a coffee maker. This works for me!


grannyannie on 11/01/2011:
Hope your plan works out! I have faith in you! Re my hip pain, I don't have muscle or joint pain, only pain when I lie on it in bed. Defo a nerve! Might stop the ankle weights for a while.


grannyannie on 11/01/2011:
Thanks for the photo tip. Must be because I'm using Chrome because I always get an error message. Will try again. I've never had trouble uploading photos anywhere before.


grannyannie on 11/01/2011:
Added a photo to my page just now!


legcramps on 11/01/2011:
Good luck with cutting out caffiene. I know it would be incredibly difficult for me, even with the one-two cups I have each morning. It's the routine that I think I would miss most.


thinkpositive on 11/02/2011:
Not easy but sounds like you are motivated to quit caffeine. Thanks for the tips on uploading pictures. I only got so far & then it asked for a url & then I have no clue what to put in there. Sorry sometimes hopeless with technical stuff. I did put pictures on flickr & now have to figure out how to share them. I'll figure it out eventually.

Little tech note: I switched to a scale that measures in 0.2# increments from 0.5#.

Go Rangers!

I liked the readings on my Rolls Royce of scales today! :-) I wanted to include a machine that does bone mass since I had a very scary reading in my 40's. My machine says I'm in normal range. But I take the readings with a wee grain of salt.


liza36 on 10/24/2011:
I weigh myself about every other day. It helps with accountability, and to see what types of things influence the fluctuations. I know you said you used to do it, and are back to weight every day. I hope that is working for you. Nice job on the exercise too!


V on 10/24/2011:
Haha!! I must learn to read all the words instead of selecting the ones that jump out at me... ;) Anyways going lighter also leaves room for another set or two so that still rocks!! Have a good one Biscotti :)

For my activity: Walk 35 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (10 min)

I weighed in (new plan for daily weighing) and was up a little this morning. The wt trng probably contributed a little plus higher cal food in the evening. I generally avoid weighing myself the day after wt trng. My rule will be to record the increase if it lasts more than a day or two.

The big thing is that I completed a full wt trng session. And it felt very good despite the long break. Bumped down to 13# (from 15.5#) dumbbells. Overall it was a boost to my confidence, which is what my workouts have been about much of the time this past year. Didn't get in the bike ride.

Boring ol' CPAP news: Got a new nasal pillow insert for my CPAP mask and oh what a difference. It's made of silicone and you'd think it wouldn't lose shape, but it had done just that. The seal around my nostrils is actually perfect now. I guess it's something that you don't notice degrading until it's too late.

Alright! Completing wt and upping the weights. That is awesome and you are so right about not weighing the day after wt...And LOL I find your CPAP news informative, not boring :) And thanks for the info on Anita, I am sure she is enjoying her "press free" life, they crucified her :( Have a good week!!

I weighed in today and I'm down a half-pound. I'm going to weigh in daily until . . .

I weighed myself daily early on in my diary/journey here--probably for a few months. I needed the accountability of it and now I think I can live with doing it again for awhile. (I was only going to add the Saturday weigh-in, but I'll try daily for awhile.)

I don't know if I can call myself relentless just yet, but I'm working my way there:-) My back is pretty fine today so far. I think I can finally get in some wt trng later on.

Weighed in on Tuesday and was the same. Body fat was up--I think it's the highest I've measured with my little Omron gadget. Ah, soooo much room for improvement--yeah!

My back is infinitely better, thanks for all the well wishes. I did quite a bit of stretching and some pelvic tilts before my walk Sunday and that preparation came close to making it "all better" in a small way. It's getting better every day. A little up, a little down. Today it's about 99% of just right:-)

For my activity:
Sun: Walk 20 min
Mon: Walk 30 min
Tues: Walk 15 min
Wed-Fri: Nothing much but driving

For Tuesday's weigh-in I'm up by a pound--no body fat check this week. Pooped out on the calorie counts. Will try to pick up soon. I did do it for a day--better than nothing. I'll get it going I'm sure:-)

When the weather gets cooler, it's always a shock to me to some degree. You couldn't ask for much more gorgeous weather than we've been having this week--simply marvelous:-) I much prefer hot weather, or maybe it's just that I prefer consistency. So I'm getting my head wrapped around nicer weather and cooler temps. Not a good excuse to be lazy, but it is what it is.

I have been dealing with low back spasms. The worst day was Thursday--I'm improving from there. I may try to do my wt trng--was at 15.5# on my dumbbells for that.  Since I've been so inconsistent (lazy haha) as of late, I'll go back to the next lower wt for them. With the spasms I'd say my prospects are at about 50-50 today.

I got my permanent crown for a broken tooth this past week. Got my teeth cleaned too, and it feels great to be good to go for another six months.

jeez I hope the spasms subsides :( have a good painfree weekend!

The packets are very high in sodium. I don't think that is an issue for me as the pot of soup I added this to was HUGH and I didn't salt it at all otherwise. The salt content of the overall dish was very small. For example 830 mg sodium in my soup divided by 12 or more servings = 69 mg sodium per serving. Acceptable for me.

Hope your back feels better. Have a good Sunday.

Take care with your back biscotti. I hope the spasms subside soon. Your weather sounds perfect. Unfortunately we are forecast a cold spell :-(

It's getting cooler here and i'm not adjusting very well. I already have my toque, mitts and scarf handy for when I need to leave the house ;)

you and I are in the same boat -- I too need to get better about calories and really stick to it.

For my activity: Nothing but washing clothes

It must be done. I'm going to try to have a good attitude starting out and hope that my actions will show me that I'm on the right track. Yep, counting calories--daily. I may stumble, but I feel pretty good about this decision. Sleep is excellent (7 hrs per) the last four nights--I'm having my coffee very early too. Maybe I'm getting past some things finally.

We got a buttload of rain--lucky us. I took this pic in my backyard on Sunday morning. I need a new rain gauge, so I'm not sure how much we got--perhaps 5 inches. The weather is lovely today--cloudy, cool and dampish. No more rain in the forecast, but it was wonderful while it lasted:-)

Good for you counting calories again! Made a big change in my weight loss to be a strict counter. We've got plenty of rain here we can share with you. Just ask and I'll send it! LOL.

So happy you had some wonderful rain! I have a friend in West Texas and they are getting a little rain here and there. Keep up the great work!

My actual age is 20. Good job you like the rain! I'm trying to cut down on sleep as I usually get about 10 hrs a night!


supercheese on 10/10/2011:
Holy moly you are almost to your goal! Good job :)


V on 10/10/2011:
Remember when we were praying for this?? LOl We had quite the soaking yesterday as well.. I hope your calorie counting is a success :) Have a good evening!

I will definitely check out that movie chow down... I'm kinda liking the way I feel on this diet! Thanks for the info...


greengirl on 10/12/2011:
Good to see you get some rain biscotti although I wish we didn't get quite so much in the UK !! Congrats on the 7 hours sleep and good luck with the calorie counting :-)

Good to know you're seeing progress. The heart rate, well! That's just weird you cannot get a higher value there... I hope you figure it out soon. I won't ignore my problem, no way. I lost way too much weight to toss it down to the toilet now. "A bend in the road is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn." - Author Unknown
