Thur: Nothing
Fri: Bike Ride 10 min

So this is what happens sometimes, especially when I'm first starting to watch things closely: I had various and sundry leftovers. I didn't want to throw them out, so I spaced my eating out throughout the day. And I learned a couple of things. One of which is I can still eat quite alot and not have any ill effects. (This was something I wasn't too sure about because I really had cut back on my overall intake the last couple of months--for the most part.)

The other thing I learned is that though I have a couple of health issues I'm still ironing out, they DON'T include anything remotely related to gastric/digestive/gut issues, something that was going to be the next thing to look at medically.

So my veritable eating with abandon, though not overeating Thursday, was worthwhile overall! And I enjoyed it! Nevertheless, I will be gradually cutting calories and fat.

Note: I redid yesterday's calories--had counted 3 svgs of truffles instead of 1, which actually gave me a positive deficit--woo-hoo! Again, my goal is for the deficit not to be in red.

In the great scheme of things one day of steady eating should't ever make a difference when you are being so careful at other times, and if you enjoyed it, good for you :)

I agree with green girl, all that really matters is if you eat more than you planned, don't punish yourself, just get back on the saddle!

That Prime BMI figure of 1.08 got me too. I guess I should go back tothe site for more information. That BMI of 17 I used to have evidentally wasn't based on the formula of height and weight. I remember when I first joined the Biltmore and I had a trainer for the day, she took several measurements: the wrists and hips I think, did some computations and then came up with 17. I don't think I ever figured it out myself. And didn't you tell me about the measurement method I described?

At any rate, what a rude awakening it was to find my BMI is 27. EGAD! Even worse is needing to get even lower than 125. I feel if I were in the teens, I'd blow away!

I'm glad you got rid of that pesky half pound that really wants to become permanent. There are several crucial weights that give me problems.

I think the main reason I've been progressing this week is due to eating a grapefruit a day. I swear by them and lose every time I make them a daily part of my life.

I hope it's a nice dy for walking and that you get in all of your planned exercise.


panda22 on 01/21/2010:
Hey Biscotti! Thanks for the comment! Glad to know I'm not the only one who has that problem! Actually my specific issue as of now seems to be the one where I ask a question that I know I don't want to know the answer too ((Because I already know it)), and then when I hear it said aloud it's like a slap in the face. My own fault though. Oh well, life goes on. Anyway, you are doing great! Good for you getting back to logging your intake. I find it does make a difference. Have a nice day!


geevee on 01/22/2010:
BMI update: I checked out the site you mentioned and found the same prime BMI 1.08! That was in addition to the regular BMI of 27.

My memory of the trainer figuring out my BMI is hazy. I seem to recall calipers and the squeezing of mid-body flab which I felt embarrassed by!

Apparently she used a method other than the height/weight formular.


legcramps on 01/22/2010:
Way to get those calorie counts in. I feel it's nice to know at least once in a while how many calories you're actually taking in as sometimes I like to lie to myself about that... lol. Have a good weekend :)

I'm down a pound on my weigh-in today.

Got a good long walk behind me yesterday! Temp didn't quite make it to 70F, but it was nice anyway.

Plenty to rant about today, but I'm taking the high road--onward and upward!

I got a decent night's sleep. If I can string together 3 or 4 nights like this, it'll be interesting to see how I feel.

It's supposed to be in the 70sF today and be essentially great weather for the next week. A little rain is forecast here and there, but we need it.

I got in the wt trng. On the other hand, I'm just not into counting calories lately--will give it a go again starting tomorrow. It works for me and keeps me accountable!

I donated blood yesterday--that's why I drank so much yesterday. I've been so haphazard about donating the last several years. I'm going to try to donate on schedule this year for once. It's the only time I eat Oreo and Nutter Butter Pnt Btr Sandwich cookies:-)

My hubby donates blood regularly. He's done it for years. They use his blood for the babies having surgery. And yep, they do provide the cookies. Sometimes he brings some home, heh. You're doing great!


panda22 on 01/17/2010:
Hi Biscotti, I wanted to thank you for the comment that you left me yesterday. It was very open and honest. I understand where you are coming from when you say that you don't know how to respond to individuals with ED's. Over the years I have encountered many people who are the same way, including my own father. Through recovery I have also found it increasingly difficult to respond to individuals with the types of issues that I used to have. Sometimes I get frustrated and just want to tell them to help themselves but I know from experience that will not work. Getting back on the road to a healthy lifestyle takes ones own decision and commitment to do so. ANYWAY, just wanted to say thank you and that your comment meant a lot. Don't think I comment you much ((sorry)), but you are doing wonderfully by the way! I just started weight training today and it kicked my butt! Kudos to you for doing it, I can only hope one day it'll get easier! Also, I had to laugh at the section of your bio that talked about how people see your success, tell you that you look great, and then get upset and jealous...I have a friend who is exactly like that. Have a great day!


greengirl on 01/17/2010:
Giving blood sounds like a good excuse to eat you favourite cookies LOL :)

For my activity:  NordicTrack 45 min/4.4 mi

I'm going to call today's increase of 1.5# a fluctuation, because I uncharacteristically got into some white cheddar Cheez-Its last night. A victim of my taste buds--haha--oh the MSG of it all--they're left over from some chex mix making. I just don't buy this stuff except to make chex mix. At any rate, I probably ate 4 or 5 servings before I knew it!

Didn't get in the wt trng, but probably will do so today. My anxiety over my health is improving daily--thank goodness I'm able to exercise like I can! More incentive to lose and get back to jogging regularly.

Onward and upward!

Sat: NordicTrack 45 min/4.6 mi; Short Walk
Sun: NordicTrack 44 min/4.3 mi; Short Walk

So I had a stress test on Thursday--yeah, it was stressful--haha! All kidding aside, my BP just before the test was 180/110--unusually high for me, so it improved during and was pretty much normal several minutes after. So I have no limitations on exercise as regards my heart function. I cannot tell you what good news this is. I'm nearly ecstatic NOT to have an excuse:-)

As for the calorie counting--I postponed it again, though I did get in and mess with Fitday a bit--once. I am writing down my food. That's all I guess I'm willing to do--will try again Wednesday. I owe it to myself to at least count for a month. I'm finding that I'm all over the place on my food choices, and I keep thinking that actually planning/creating a guideline for what I will eat in a day would serve me well. I'm not going to beat myself up for deviating as long as I write it all down. This does not mean I'm planning to deviate!

I just can't make myself write everything down and count the calories. I have done this so many times before and failed that I figure why bother. I know it helps to have a plan but I'm just taking it one meal at a time and doing the best with it. I do kind of keep a count of calories in my head all day but not really down to each calorie, sort of just an estimate. I know what is right to eat and what is not and I'm just trying to eat the right things. Anyway, I'm glad your stress test went well. Happy exercising!


nenak on 01/11/2010:
I dont count calories but I do record everything that goes in my mouth. then at the end of the day i look back and see what I could have done without and try to do without it next time. you are positive and you can only do what you want to do! keep up the good work!


legcramps on 01/11/2010:
You're doing great, whether you write everything down or not. Do what works for you; sometimes planning it out that way pressures you into feeling really bad when you 'fail' by not following the plan you made out for yourself. Life is everyday and things will happen - what's best is learning how to overcome the obstacles without losing sight of your goals! Have a great day today!


greengirl on 01/11/2010:
hey Biscotti, hope you are well. I'm more motivated now than I have been for a couple of years so I'm hoping to stick around for a while. I wish I could be as consistent as you always seem to be. I will be checking out everyones diaries in the next couple of days hopefully. Thanks for still being here. You give me more confidence :)


MoodyMe on 01/11/2010:
Glad the stress test went well and you have the green light to workout!

I don't track my calories as closely as I should, but I just can't bring myself to write everything down..Planning tho, really helps to stay on track! Good luck!

Hope you had a great day!

Essentially I did a full circuit workout--all exercises, fewer reps than last time and used only 10.5# dumbbells. It felt very good--I needed to boost my body and spirit. Sleep seems to be getting a little better, just not enough!

Somehow my son missed the 8½ x 11 sheet with the quote from Homer the other day, but did notice it yesterday. He came into my room grumbling about it and how he doesn't like to be re- minded of his excesses. "Too bad. You need this!"

Good going on the half pound loss. They all add up.

I'm satisfied with baby steps regarding my food tracking. I didn't do Fitday, but I have written down my food since last Wednesday. I'll definitely start counting this coming Wednesday.

I'm going to do a mini circuit workout today--I'm trying to minimize/avoid any soreness because of some things coming up later this week, so a full workout will have to wait.
