We do survive every moment, after all, except the last one. --John Updike

For my activity:
Tues: Walk 10 min; NordicTrack 23 min/2.2 mi
Wed: Walk 10 min; Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (21 min/2.1 mi)
Thur: Walk 35 min; NordicTrack 42 min/4.4 mi; Bike Ride 22 min/3.5 mi

We got a modicum of  freezing rain and about an inch of sleet afterward--no power outage.

My calories are generally higher lately. I'm still not budgeting my calories. It's not that I don't care, I'm enjoying my food at the moment more than you could possibly know--haha:-) I'm not overeating/overfilling myself. I know I'll try to shore it up with a little more consistency again soon.

I still recomend the book Overcoming Overeating by Jane R Hirschmann & Carol H Munter to anyone who overeats, eats at night without control or thinks what they're doing is bingeing. It's not for everyone, but it really helped me get a handle on nighttime eating some years ago. I never had a problem with eating at night until I started paying attention to my food intake and realized it had just gotten out of hand--not to mention being miserably overfull alot of the time. I can't say there's an actual chapter on it, but the perspectives in the book did me a world of good!

There was a time when I didn't eat at night at all--and it wasn't something I thought about one way or the other!

I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it. --Anne Lamott (in "Bird by Bird")

For my activity: Walk 25 min; NordicTrack 32 min/3.2 mi;
Jog 2 min/Walk 3 min x 4

Weight's the same on my weigh-in today.

My First Jog in Forever: I used the nifty interval timer on my watch. (A "repeat" amounts to an interval.) The first 2 minute repeat was like swimming through mud. The second was better, the third felt good and the fourth felt great. I knew my body didn't need to be pushed any more than that. I want to preserve my healthy limbs more than I want to jog at this point. So I'll be back out there on Friday.

And since I couldn't find my training schedule, the numbers should've been jog 2/walk 1 x 7, but I was running out of time and couldn't find it. Oh well, I'll work up. This has to be a gradual process for me at this age & poundage--haha--and after such a long break.

Didn't get in the Bike Ride. And we're under an Ice Storm Warning 'til tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the welcome back! I also want to work up to jogging and am going to go the same route you are~walking/jogging intervals~Good luck!!!!


thinnside40 on 01/27/2009:
Ice storm?!?!?!? Yuck!... We are "cold" here, but that's it....

Happy for you that you got in your jog/walk like you wanted to... I bet it did feel good!

Good Evening!


Maria* on 01/27/2009:
Hope you stay safe (and warm) if ice storm comes your way...


stringbean on 01/27/2009:
RYC- (RICE)- Thank you. I thought I was missing something! I did wrap it last night, and I'm keeping off of it and keeping it propped up. It *is* getting better though!

Good job on the running, and I hope the ice storm either misses you completely or is light. Those suck! When we lived in Arkansas a few years ago a big ice storm came through and we lost power for 9 days!! It was horrible!


selina on 01/28/2009:
Stay warm!


WI3 on 01/28/2009:
GREAT JOB!!!! So cool to see you are running!


thinnside40 on 01/28/2009:
Hey Hey my dear!.... Solicite me anytime!..... I can take it or leave it, but know that you have the best interest at heart (I hate that word interest most of the time, but not here).... THANK YOU! for what you contribute to my life!

ON another note, I read the other day where Maria had mentioned the "man" inuendoe (sp?).... I do plumbing,grouting,mousetrapping,wood cutting,tire changing,unclogging drains & assembling or fixing many other things and often suprise someone in need of a "man" that I CAN take care and they won't have to wait for my hubby to get home. hehehehehehehehe... Sometimes I do too much, but in the moment it's all good! BTW ~ I'm female!

Have a great Wednesday... AND again, THANK YOU!


thinnside40 on 01/29/2009:
RE: Applying again for $40 off ~ I tried to re-apply, but it gave me the "reject", due to already being registered as receiving our 2 @ this address... Figures huh.... It isn't going to kill us to not have one, but there was an ad in ShopKo today for one $50 ($10 in the end).....

Happy Friday!

For my activity:
Walk 10 min; NordicTrack 32 min/3.4 mi;
Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (11 min/2.3 mi)

I most certainly did do all my planned activity! Yeah--that's more like it!

I'm going to ease into some jogging starting today. Since it's been so long--a 12-min test in October and jogging in June--I'll have to deal with some cobwebs in the legs--haha! (Not to mention I'm now about 8# heavier than I was.) Though we could still get some nasty/icy weather that would prevent me from jogging regularly, it's usually pretty easy to work around it all, plus the days are still getting longer--woo-hoo!

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!

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.

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!
