What we live by we die by. --Robert Frost

For my activity lately:
Sat-Wed: Nothing

I'm at status quo for my Tuesday weigh-in.

The no coffee thing is still on. My next new habit is to get in a short walk as soon as I get up each morning--starting tomorrow. Sounds easy--too easy. If it were, I'd already be doing it!

Onward and upward I go!

He's 30.. and does think it's ok to be alone with her.. he said that her husband has no problem if they go to lunch.. they are all friends.. and that I am being a child..

what should I say to him?

her or me?.. I can't do that

For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (13 min/1.1 mi); Short Walk

So I got in all my activity. I can't keep letting myself off the hook with the wt trng like I have this time--13 days between workouts--ridiculous! Two days is the scheduled number of days to skip in between them--I'll shoot for no more than 4 days at the most. Thirteen days--I couldn't even believe it--it's waaay too easy to make excuses for myself!

I looked again at the above paragraph and thought "this time"--it's good that there aren't too many old (been on DD >4 years) DDers here now--taking into account how many "this times" I've had--haha! I think Soonie and Crittermom and Maria* are about the only ones I've seen lately. At least by names I recognize--some have come back with new names--or I'm just not familiar with how long others have been posting here.

But what're ya' gonna do--gotta keep on keepin' on. It may seem tiring to start over every day (if necessary), but if it gets you the least bit healthier or keeps you from going up even one size, then quit giving up! Start changing it up--you're not getting any younger. It may suck for you to work out--make your peace with it or find something you can actually enjoy!

Onward and upward and all that jazz!

I agree! It's good that you are taking note of your workout routine so you can monitor the areas you want to improve on. Good job!

The whole point of getting things done is knowing what to leave undone. --Lady Stella Reading

For my activity:
Mon & Tues: Nothing
Wed:
Essentially Nothing--Driving 3 hrs
Thur: NordicTrack 34 min/3.3 mi; Walk 26 min

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

I completed the water goal for my 3-day challenge (now ancient history:-) (S-S-M: <2000 calories, drink at least 80 oz water and get my planned activity DONE!) Not a great overall result--I wish myself better prep and follow-through next time!'

I made oatmeal-date scones instead of my regular oatmeal--one is good--four is even better--haha! Really though I hadn't made them in awhile and they're probably out of my system for some time. Still no coffee--tea only--in the morning.

For my activity: Walk 63 min  

I completed no goals for my 3-day challenge. (S-S-M: <2000 calories, drink at least 80 oz water and get my planned activity DONE!)

I thought I'd be over by a little more. I don't budget my calories, which is something I'm rethinking, though right now making this one absolutely huge change of no coffee (or other source of caffeine) for some period of time is enough of a big change for me--for now! Still on only 1 cup of one-teabag tea with lemon except for the one day I had the iced tea in the afternoon.

Oh and I guess the eating breakfast early is a big change as well--so far, so good!

Sounds like a great goal. I think that is probably what my ideal weight would be too, but I will have to get there to see. For now I wanna get to 155, and then I will go 5 at a time and see if I am good with 150 or 145 would be best! xo

Current BMI=28.7 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: Nothing 

***Update***
I'm scratching the Circ Wkt because the caffeine withdrawal is kicking my butt! What a way to find out I drink more of it than I thought, or that my body was more dependent on it than I thought! May sound wimpy, but I don't want to fall flat on my face this go 'round!
***End***

No activity again! So on my weigh-in I'm up 2# and I'm not shocked. That's about 8# away from obesity (BMI-wise). My normal weigh-in day is Tuesday, which will continue. I'm doing a 3-Day Sat-Mon challenge of <2000 calories, drink at least 80 oz water and get my planned activity DONE!

I cut my caffeine yesterday to one cup of two-teabag, highly squeezed, overly strong green tea + lemon. Then later in the afternoon I had a glass of raspberry tea (the premixed with sugar added kind)--I was really wanting a big ol' cup of coffee! It took the edge off of the craving, which is much better today. I woke up early this morning with a moderately bad headache--the caffeine withdrawal kind. So that's just one day, I have a poor track record for cutting down on caffeine for more than a few days, so time will tell.

So this morning I noticed that with no milk for my hot caffeine drink, I had to eat earlier. I'm used to leisurely enjoying my coffee as I get going and then having breakfast much later. Normally I'd drink 1-3 cups of coffee with milk, with that I'm pretty much good to go. (And I know that if GeeVee were reading, she knows what I'm talking about because she didn't eat her first meal of the day 'til later, though I don't think she drank her coffee with milk.)

Okay enough about that. Today I made my green tea with two bags, no squeezing of the bag! So I ate some cooked rolled oats + grd flaxseeds + a peeled apple and a dash of salt. I took my vitamins and I was fine as frog's hair:-) I'd like to go without coffee for the next several weeks--1 cup of green tea only (gradually working down to only one bag with no squeezing haha) and possibly a glass of iced tea with lemon only if necessary or if I just want it.

I was looking for a recipe to use up some cheerios--didja know they have added sugar. To watch the commercials you'd think they didn't. Not that I'm surprised. So I found a recipe for "Fried Cheerios," which are supposed to come out tasting sort of like popcorn. Then the one I'm probably going to use sort of sounds "popcorn ball-ish." The last one that sounded okay is similar to rice krispies treats.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/10/2009:
yeah, i was thinking it would be a rice krispies treat recipe! what else is cereal good for!? haha.

what's wrong with squeezing a tea bag!? it's getting good use out of it. if you're having only one cup of green tea a day, i don't think the extra caffeine and whatever else from the squeezing of one tea bag is a bad thing. unless there is some health date that proves me wrong!

lately, i've been trying to have breakfast LATER so that i have my first snack LATER all in the attempt to eat less calories throughout the workday so i can enjoy them more come dinner or after yoga during the week. on weekends, that's another story, and i like to have breakfast on the earlier side. but, in general, the body needs SOMETHING in the morning.

grumpy on 01/10/2009:
Thanks for your comment. I don't think I will end up with him again ever, I went back and forth for a while, now I am pretty sure I wont even talk to him again, much less have anything with him again. People react differently to pain, though and unfortunately to me, i rather stay in or do something really low key instead of dressing up and feel hot and get out there. plus i am not interested in relationships now and for a while. and he treating me as he did, doesnt necessarily means he will treat this girl the same way, maybe he does like her and didn't like me and also maybe she won't be an idiot like i did and demand him certain things, he obviously will comply being weak as he is. I don't care though, it's none of my business, all i have to do is go enough days to forget. thanks. xo.


WI3 on 01/10/2009:
Enjoy your slight break in the routine, just don't make it a vacation LOL. I haven't had much kale lately, I go through periods where I get tired of it..mostly tired of washing and chopping it LOL. If they made it already chopped and washed, I'd probably buy it like I buy green beans! I like to cook my kale by boiling it a little first, and then throwing it in a pan with some cooking spray and cooking it until it is just crispy a little..and then put it in a bowl with a tablespoon of canola oil and some black pepper...THAT Is my favorite way to eat kale. I don't see any kale on this diet, but I could do the exchange and add it I suppose. Hmmm...

haha the pad thing was a riot!
