I'm behind on counting cals, etc. So I'll try again today--put the past few days behind me. It's no secret I generally focus on exercise. And I would abandon counting calories altogether, but it makes me think twice--a very good thing!

My cardiovascular fitness is just about the worst it's been in a long long time. I pushed myself the last two workouts. It's helping--it seems to be working!

Oh BTW, we got a little more than 4 inches (a rarity) of snow here. Absolutely beautiful--all of it--the falling--the snow on the ground and in the trees--everything!

Enjoy the snow. For me exercise and nutrition support each other. Somehow I find it easier to exercise when I've eaten right and easier to eat right if I'm exercising regularly. But all thing in good time. Haven't done much exercise this week as have been quite ill. Better week coming up!


panda22 on 02/15/2010:
Hey there =) Sorry to hear about your week going like mine did, it's tough sometimes, but we can get back on track! Sounds like you are moving forward! I'm the same way, I do better at exercise, but love food, so that makes it harder to eat right! Takes a lot of focus and willpower, but we can do it! Oooooh and you can definitely borrow some of the 4 FEET of snow that is sitting in my front yard...if yours melts too quickly hahaha Have a great day!!

All right! Today's weigh-in (up 1.5#) and BF measurement is a minor train wreck--please move along--there's nothing to see people--haha!

Seriously--a new wakeup call--I'm doing a few things consistently well to further my goals. On the other hand the consistency is not there in other areas. It's good to get a wakeup call--if it spurs change. Time will tell!

So close. You are doing just fine. Keep it up.

Consistency is key~you got this!!


greengirl on 02/11/2010:
It's nice to see that you are staying positive, and using this blip as a wakeup call instead of an excuse to do further damage !! I wish I had done that eighteen months ago instead of piling the weight back on. Good for you Biscotti :)

No gym trip or bike ride yesterday. Weigh-in and BF measurement tomorrow. I will pick up counting cals, etc tomorrow.

I highly recommend this movie, I've Loved You So Long with Kristin Scott Thomas. It's French--English subtitles, though I guess on the DVD she dubbed her own voice in English or something (from wikipedia article). I just stumbled upon it on one of the Starz channels.

I should explain this, though this is all really for my own info/eval. Each month presents an opportunity for 10-12 total wkts.

History: I had a string of "on schedule" wkts from 7.09-9.09--missed eight in September. Missed all but one in both October and November. Missed all wkts in December and missed all but two in January.

Pretty esoteric, but I know how I feel NOT doing any wt trng and for me it makes all the difference in the world to my existence, my happiness, everything! I embrace it because it makes everything easier. I feel stronger and accomplished. It's mine and no one can take it away from me--haha--always a good thing!

you got the same cal /fat/fiber values for Saturday and Sunday as well? You repeated a day? :-)

Very cool that you got to go out on a bike ride! Getting in a good workout doing something fun like that makes it so much more bearable!


nita51 on 02/07/2010:
So glad you don't have diabetes and your bike riding will, I'm sure,,, prevent you from ever getting it. Thanks for the info I will try to catch that program. Keep taking good care of yourself. Hugs

Calories would have been reasonable--in the 1700s--had I eaten one truffle instead of 7:-) Today's a new truffle-free (so far) day!

Got my wt trng in--will increase my dumbbells to 13.5# next workout--scheduled for Sunday. Did 8 mtn climbers, 12 military pushups and 18 sissy pushups all increased from last workout. Also increased my bicycle crunches and leg lifts from last workout.

This is an empowering workout--feels good! Will try my best to get in the bike ride--haven't been on it since September!

Great job on the weight training! I'm not a fan of that particular exercise!

"12 military pushups and 18 sissy pushups" >> :D funny :D


geevee on 02/05/2010:
Geez! I'm impressed with your push ups. I have so little upper body strength that I can't do even one sissy push up!

A couple of years ago when I used to do the ten machines on the circuit at the U of Miami, I showed absolutely NO improvement after 3 months on that machine that you pull toward yourself with your arms. I don't know what you call it.

So, good for you!


panda22 on 02/05/2010:
"Truffle-free day" LOL I'm having a "Junk-Food Free Day"...here's to moving past yesterday and onto a successful day today! 12 military pushups is something I only DREAM to accomplish someday! HAHA "sissy" pushups are sadly all I can do....funny since my husband is military so of course he can do ONE handed pushups....showoff! Have a nice evening and a great weekend! Keep it up, doing great!

I appreciate the suggestions you gave. There isn't much going on around here, but I will keep an eye out just in case. There will be more things I can do once I lose some, right now the knees and stuff won't let me take part in some activities!
