(Challenges::Water::Logging Food::Fitday)
Weight: 166.0

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=28.5 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity: Walk 60 min; Bike Ride 16 min/2.4 mi

Today I'm feeling like I have a strong framework, which can and will get stronger. I've been down this road, but I never paid as much attention to how the wt trng was changing me as I am now--I'm easily distracted:-) This time I am focusing on this positive change--maintaining and actually developing it further!

Plan for today: Walk, Circuit Workout

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

For my activity lately:
Fri: Walk 27 min; Mowing 1 hr
Sat: Walk 55 min; Weedeating 1.5 hrs/Mowing 1.5 hrs/Cleanup 20 min
Sun: Walk 51 min; Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (10 min/1.1 mi)
Mon: Walk 12 min; NTrack 14 min/2.6 mi

For my weigh-in today I'm down 1.5 pounds. As for measurements I'm down nearly 1.5 inches overall. Significantly I'm down on all measurements except wrist--up 1/16th inch. A little odd since it's my one measurement that rarely ever changes.

Have written my food in my notebook lately, but I'm not going to take time to track it in Fitday--will start up again tomorrow. (It's one of those things that must be done daily or I feel like it's a major chore.)

Sunday's wt trng--7 in a row--tomorrow's will make 8 in a row--two days skipped between scheduled full body wt trng.

Plan for today: Walk, Bike Ride

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

For my activity:
Walk 51 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (21 min/3.2 mi);
Bike Ride 26 min/5.3 mi

I had an excellent wt trng workout--food choices not so fab, but I ate enough too! I've been down the road of not eating enough, and at this point I'd rather eat just a little too much rather than to deprive myself and suffer the backlash of thinking I have to make up for it. (If that makes sense.)

Didn't have time to track cals, etc--will update later.

it makes total sense. everyday cannot be "eat as little as possible" day.

I skipped out on the bike ride--wasn't really into it anyway.

Today's Circuit will make six in a row--two days skipped between scheduled full body wt trng. I also increase my dumbbells to 15# each.

I did turn over 300 mi on my bicycle odometer the other day--just a little milestone that I was expecting to hit many months ago. I credit the wt trng for boosting my overall strength so that I don't feel like a blob of out-of-breath, 50 y/o jelly trying to get up a hill.

A little wt trng goes a long way! (And I'm just getting started!)

Congratulations on the fitness achievement!!! Do you feel that you get adequate cardio with bike riding?


halley on 08/05/2009:
That's a great accomplishment. I'm glad you're feeling good.

*Love* weight training. i'm looking to delve into that myself this schoolyear.

When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal. --Napoleon Hill

For my activity:
Walk 45 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (21 min/4.1 mi);
Bike Ride 17 min/2.5 mi

I'm up 1.5 pounds on my weigh-in today. On measurements I'm up overall one-eighth inch. My waist was up .25 inch--so I nearly held my own this week. If I continue to be able to be as active and start watching the calories (cut a couple hundred a day on average)--I think I'll be in good shape!

Five in a row--two days skipped between scheduled full body wt trng.

Donkey on 08/04/2009:
Yes, today will be a good day, God willing. I too think you will be A-OK if you continue what you are doing. What you had today, the 1.5 -- that's just a glitch of the body. It happens to all of us.


halley on 08/04/2009:
Just keep doing the right things - there is no way you won't lose weight if you do!

Tomorrow's Circuit will make five in a row--two days skipped between scheduled full body wt trng.

Didn't get in my planned workout, but to be realistic I needed that break. When I'm on a bit of a roll like I have been, it can be hard to schedule in a complete rest day:-)

Great job! You ARE on a roll, so make sure you give yourself some "down time". You don't want to burn yourself out - that's what always happens to me - or I push to hard to soon & end up pulling this or straining that!.


halley on 08/03/2009:
Rest days are essential as workout days. You're doing great.


Donkey on 08/03/2009:
Nothing wrong at all with rest days. I found out that I needed some time away from the gym, this weekend, too.

I'm always confused by what you mean "four in a row"? Do you mean four circuits?

Thank you always for your encouragement and pushes forward. You seem to be doing quite well lately :-)
