For my activity:
Sat: Nothing
Sun: Short Walk
Mon: NordicTrack 58 min/6.6 mi; Walk 15 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (18 min/4.5 mi)

No change on my weigh-in. No measurements today.

Once again I skipped 21 days (this time) before doing any weight training. (Last time it was 4 days between workouts and the time before that 45 days.) Agewise, it's the eleventh hour for me. None of this works (for me) without wt trng, and I don't know how many more times I'll have to beat my head against the wall (by skipping too many workouts). It may sound like I'm being kinda hard on myself, but I don't see it that way because the benefits of wt trng for me are myriad, especially since it just doesn't take that much time.

Plan for today: NTrack, Walk

Cheers to you all!

Progress as of today: 27.5 lbs lost so far, only 18.5 lbs to go!

HAHAHA! i thought you were totally 100% serious! lol. i thought it was odd, coming from you, though. but, i have a tendency to actually eat all those things and spend a morning that way, so i kinda didn't think twice when you wrote that! HAHA


thinnside40 on 12/15/2008:
Thank You!.... and I wish you could read an article that our local paper had in it on Saturday... It was about "Oprah" and how she shouldn't trump other stories that are way more worthy of acknowledgement than her weight issues and generating her more $$$$$ by selling her "ways to improve"...... It was good!... We had 2 ladies pass away this last month that both willed millions of dollars to education & that was the writer's "beef" about where acknowledgement should come in...

Have a terrific week.... Big plans for Christmas?

I am passing this on to you because it definitely works, and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives.

By following the simple advice heard on the Dr Phil show, you too can find inner peace. Dr Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished."

So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates.

You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now!

skinnyjeans on 12/12/2008:

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/12/2008:
hmmmm. this is just an odd entry to me because you sound like a different person! lol. i like this entry a lot.

i can't do baily's. i had a VERY bad experience back in 2003 which included a toilet bowl. haha.

I happened to get out for the walk just as it started drizzling, by the time I got home it had turned to freezing rain. The wind and premature darkness owing to the storm kept me from staying out any longer. Nope it's not as cold as some have it--nowhere near. It was cold but sunny out today and it's gonna be in the 70s by the weekend. Though I've never experienced it, I would suspect being in a deep freeze is highly overrated--haha!

Plan for today: NTrack, Walk

Cheers to you all!

Justine6Robert3 on 12/11/2008:
Thanks for the encouragement and it's good to be back! I peek in every now and then and your almost always on the list when I do....your soooo dedicated, that's great! I should follow your example! I'm soooo envious.....I would LOVE some sunshine...70's sounds heavenly right now!!! We just recently moved into a new city and home and one of my new neighbours moved here from Texas about 1 yr ago. Her husband is in the Military so they've moved around alot but she said she really misses Texas.....I bet she misses the weather too.....especially right now, it's REALLY cold out there today!

I'm down 2.5 pounds on my weigh-in today. No measurements--maybe next week!

So Oprah admits to weighing 200# and eating whatever the hell she wants since ???. And she's going to have to get a big ol' dress for the inauguration. And her thyroid is to blame as well. Sucks to be Oprah--haha!

Really I could not care less how much she weighs--and I'm so cynical that I don't think her announcement is about anything but having yet another series of shows/books/craptobuy about how now that she's 54 she's got "the answer" to everyone else's problem. Blah, blah, blah . . .

thinnside40 on 12/09/2008:
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!!!... Can I blame my low thyroid for eating whatever I want too?

Congrats on the 2.5 drop!...... You got it goin' on...... YaY!


selina on 12/10/2008:
Hey Biscotti, thanks for the uplifting comment and for your vote of confidence - it is always nice to hear positive comments. I hope you are having a great day. I'd love to have a dog to accompany me in my walks... you are a lucky one. Cats are fun but they wouldn't join me in walks, hehe.. Lastly, Congratulations on the 2.5 loss, that's a lot you've accomplished!

Have a great evening!


kzirkle on 12/04/2008:
Thanks for the heads-up. Any tips on how to pull myself out of this funk?


mcwoo40 on 12/04/2008:
Well done on your weightloss biscotti,Oh i was meaning to ask you are they an american brand of biscuit???Keep it up,and have a great weekend,Julie


kzirkle on 12/05/2008:
Hmmm I went to CVS and now that I think about it, they did ask me if I had questions. But like, if I don't know that steroids have side effects, then how would I know to ask about them, you know? I guess this is just a learning experience because now I'm definitely going to ask about the side effects every time I get meds.

Thanks for the help! :)

My old college roommate has SAD, so I definitely know what that entails... not fun for sure. People make fun of that disorder but seeing a friend go through it, I totally believe it's real. Anyway, hope you have a good day and a great weekend.


WI3 on 12/05/2008:

selina on 12/05/2008:
Thanks, Biscotti, I appreciate your words of support. It means a lot to me. Have a great weekend.


thinnside40 on 12/06/2008:
Treadmill ~ Yes, the loaner went back... I enjoy the Gazelle much better... I tried both each day for a bit and came to that conclusion, plus the fear of something going wrong with someone elses property had me on edge all the time... I think May have to resort to just joining a gym and see what I can do with it..... Would allow me time out of the house, which I feel bound to so much of a day... The mentality factor is the worst for me... That is why the walking did so much.... Freedom from everything that loaded my pea brain.....

Have a great weekend... I'm off for a walk in just a bit... Thanks for your "warranting" of a treadmmill... The Gazelle will have to suffice budget wise right now though.... I was walking in Feb of this year all bundled up like a sho knows what & I WILL figure something out to get me outdoors.. I have to!.. Shall see where this boy I babysits schedule for pre-school will come in and may find a double stroller to take the other 2 out while he is at school.

I'm up 2.5 pounds. It is what it is. And it reflects my behavior of late, so I have no issues with the scale--it's very reliable--haha! I have to move on and improve on last week at the least. I was going to provide a rundown of my avg cals, etc from last week, but I pretty much know where the rubber meets the road. It's a waste of time unless I do it DAILY--note to self! I think I can improve on my water intake by alot as well.

I have recipes for a SweetPotato Tofu Stew and a Barley Soup to try. And I'll definitely make a Bean Curd (Tofu) Soup (it's very light) that I made years ago--it's great--I had lost track of the cook book it's in 'til recently.

Plan for today: Walk, NTrack, Airdyne
