Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=28.4 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: Walk 15 min; Driving 3 hrs

Yeah I'm back to counting driving--when it's excessive and it's about the only thing I've done for "activity" for the day. So I completed none of my ambitious plan of yesterday. The bike ride can wait 'til it's in the 60s and 70s in the coming days. Though it would be nice to experience a white Christmas--I'll pass! (I'll live vicariously through others!)

I woke up at about 3 a.m. and the Christmas lights were still on (as were one neighbor's down the street). So I turned them off, went to the bathroom and for some reason I checked to see if their lights were still on before retiring to my bed--haha--they had just turned theirs off as well. Or they're on a timer. (I can't find the Christmas light timers--they're probably trashed and useless anyway.)

Plan for today: NTrack, Walk, Circuit Workout

Cheers to you all!

For my activity: NordicTrack 52 min/5.4 mi; Walk 10 min

I'm up alot on my weigh-in, which is okay for now. I didn't really expect to be down this week. No measurements this week.

If I continue to be consistent with my workouts and gradually cut calories on a consistent basis and it's still up in 3 weeks, then I'll be alarmed. It's not unusual for me. I feel pretty good--I buttoned/zipped some shorts yesterday that I couldn't get into about 6 weeks ago. It feels good to have gotten back to wt trng--I have three more circuit workouts scheduled before 2009.

Plan for today: NTrack, Walk, Bike Ride

Current BMI=27.7 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: On my feet/putting up Christmas lights abt 3 hrs; Walk 10 min

I didn't think I'd get as bogged down as I did putting up the lights--it should have taken about an hour not three. Nevertheless I stuck to the job, and they look rather elegant (as in simple) if I do say so myself. Doing Christmas lights wasn't the most productive thing I could do (I wasn't going to put them up this year), but I'm glad I did. I'm proud of myself!

Gah, it's wt trng day again, but I'm up for it! I gotta keep on myself on this one thing and continue to keep to the schedule. If I falter on one or two things from time to time that's okay, but I'm going to try to stick to this one! Again!

I love weight training, once I'm doing it, but it's hard to get started sometimes. Have a good time with your planned exercise today!


greengirl on 12/21/2008:
Hi Biscotti, you have my best wishes for the coming festive season, and lets hope we all have a good New Year. Putting up the lights always takes longer than you expect LOL !!

Hola Biscotti! How did the weight training go? You seem to be very focused! Keep up the great work.

Ummmmmmmmmm. You!... Or was it Me?!?!?!?... All I said was "boca" to loveray, but I'm sure glad you picked up on it and remembered that I had hypothyroidism..... If you are like me (which with this you are)... You keep researching and before you know it, it leads to finding out way more than you were looking for... Not a bad thing, but sometimes daunting & time consuming..... My Dr. checks the Vit. D, Thyroid, Cholestrol, Glucose & who knows what else, but will ask her about the iodine in Feb....

The sun is shining here and about 24 degrees... At least the sunlight helps warm through the living room windows....

Have a super weekend!

Your doing so much better than myself.... Great job!

Aha! Non-iodized salt ~ About 11 years ago I went all sea salt or no salt on everything.... HInestly I believe that is what caused my low thyroid.... About 3/5 people I sold Rx's to or talk to have a thyroid problem.. We live about 50 miles from Hanford Nuclear Site and thought process with some is that being the cause as well.....I haven't had a fluctuation in levels in the last 10 years, except for when I was pregnant with Meg... Get it checked every year.. Just hard to know what to look for or stay away from unless you continually research everything you ingest... Thanks for the info, especially with the soy products.......

Good Day!

dusting is good stuff! at first i read it fast and it looked like you were on your wii! but, instead, you were just exclaiming "weeeeeeeeeea" haha.

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.

Cheers to you all!

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?
