Weight: 157.0

Start: 189 (June 2001)
Low: 150 (Nov 2006)
Current BMI=26.9 My Realistic BMI Goal=22.8 (133)


For my activity:
Thurs-Sun: Nothing
Mon: Walk 10 min

I weighed in, but it wasn't my normal routine, so I figure I'm up 1 or 2 pounds. I'm holding off on the measurements 'til next week. (Assuming I get up off of my butt the rest of this week:-)

It's been a little harder getting back in the groove. I've got a couple of stumbling blocks I'm dealing with too, but I don't really have an excuse not to work out. (More like a stubbed toe as opposed to a severed limb!)

And I've got to manage my time a little better--haha! Actually that's pretty serious. I don't have any terribly stressful things going on right now--really no more than usual. So I've gotta step up for myself and get back in that elusive groove!

So I'm at one missed Circuit so far--yesterday was Day 8. I'm putting that behind me. I gotta go--I want to have a little something to show for my effort soon!

For my activity: Bike Ride 32 min/5.5 mi; Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (10 min/1.1 mi); Walk 10 min

Here's what my 8-week break from wt trng cost me: I was up to 36 each military and sissy pushups. I can only do 20 sissy and 10 military right now! Oh well, I shall improve and perhaps surpass;-)

Good on all that work!!! You MUST be REAL STRONG to do those military pushups! WOW!!! I don't think I could do even ONE!!! For real! Good plan for today with the NTrack, Bike Ride (mobile or stationary?) and walk. And your running deficit +589 looks real good! Big smile to you!


thinnsidenotout on 05/01/2008:
You will build back up....You know that.....But it is a good realistic look at what "rest" will do to a person' body...That is why I continue to walk.. I may cut back on mileage once I pick up some other form of exercise, but will ALWAYS walk...

Headed into the weekend tomorrow already...Have a good one!


mcwoo40 on 05/02/2008:
Have a good weekend,Julie


thinnsidenotout on 05/02/2008:
Ha Ha!.... I would of went back and read ALL of Horns diary, but my internet speed is only @ 31K and it would take me 2 days to even get back to the 2006 beginning....We live so far out in the toolies that we have to have an external modem to even get that...too much electric fence for livestock it interferes with our connection...

I have tried to go back and find people's beginnings.

Have a good weekend!


thinnsidenotout on 05/02/2008:
Hey... at least I can be ahead of you on one thing if not weight....Internet SPEED!!!! {*;*}

I went back some and will leave it at that... = o )


Donkey on 05/02/2008:
Ah Biscotti, I gotta love ya. You always tell it how it is :-)


maria777 on 05/02/2008:
Right on with the bike ride! Fun to ride outside, isn't it? I hope you've had a real good day today! You are an inspiration to us here at DD, with all your workouts, especially those military pushups....WOW!!! Big smile to you!


maria777 on 05/03/2008:

WI3 on 05/05/2008:
Thank you for the entry on my diary. I want to let you know that more than once, the thought of you, monet, sweetpea, holly, horn, maria, geeve and BTC helped keep me from abandoning ship on myself all together. The fact that we have all been up and down and around the block and sometimes more than twice, helped me to keep little fragments of sanity. Have a great day!


glycrina on 05/05/2008:
Hey, I checked out the Overeating website and while I totally agree, I am just not ready yet. But I do keep food with me at all times (healthy foods!) and I do eat when I am hungry. But I am not ready to give up the scale or stop working out. While I know some day I will have the motivation to give up hating my body -- that day is not today. However, I appreciate the recommendation and it really gave me a lot to think about.

For my activity: NordicTrack 21 min/2.2 mi; Jog 12 min/Walk 20 min

Sunday started a routine of getting in my planned activity--woo-hoo! It takes a bit of pushing, but feeling accomplished rather than defeated is worth it! The 12 min jog wasn't bad at all, though it's been awhile since I jogged. I jogged 9 times in Jan, only once in both February and March and now twice in April--I see a 12 min test in my future--haha!

Hope you have a wonderful evening! Love, Maria


thinnsidenotout on 04/30/2008:
YEA!..... I will jog someday.... I can remember winning a 100 meter dash when I was 13 years old and that was the best feeling...Not very far, but felt good to be able to beat about 30 other kids....

You keep going and doing as you know to get to your goals...I look so forward to seeing you meet them...As I know you are in my corner as well....THANKS!

thinnsidenotout on 04/30/2008:
I have a list of "to start's/do's" and will be marking them off of my list over this next bit...Starting today with measuring again. Doing some weight stuff (have a bruised shoulder, so have to be "ginger" in what I do for another few days). Doing the caloric counting, by checking various websites and caloric needs, etc....

To give up would mean to give up on myself and I will NEVER do that again! I have some great examples of tenacity & drive here on DD.... you being one for sure and then a couple others... We shall keep EACH OTHER going...

THANKS!...May your remainder of the week be a fulfillment of your goals & for you to be happy with whatever it is you have accomplished... {*;*}

I WANT IT BAD! I WILL DO ALMOST ANYTHING!


glycrina on 04/30/2008:
I don't log my foods in here because I have to log in what I eat for my wholistic counseling class (my friend and I are doing it together with the yoga class). We have to manually write it out in a journal each day and I am too tired to do it twice. I will start logging in my food after the counseling is over.

Thanks for the encouragement though. I just need to patient. I will check out that book.

For my activity:
Tues-Wed-Thurs-Fri-Sat: Nothing
Sun: NordicTrack 53 min/5.7 mi; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (12 min/2.3 mi)

I had not done my wt trng for about 8 weeks 'til yesterday. Before that I had a string of 19 circuit workouts all on schedule. So my new goal is to surpass that by at least one.

So today begins a new count to end on 6.24.2008, which will be 58 days.

I pooped out on the challenge--I'm sure I'll pick one up again another day!

This article was interesting--especially if you need one more incentive to stop overeating: Metabolic Syndrome Triggered by Overeating, Not Obesity--Mouse study concludes weight gain is an early symptom, not a direct cause. Of course someone will have to duplicate the study in humans to be certain.

Plan for today: NTrack, Walk

Your holding your own!....Keep on keepin' on is about the best thing any of us can do...No matter how little or how much exercise...It does count for something....

As far as my walking despite the bumps~church~etc.... The walking is what gets me through the "toughness".....It is truly about 50/50 with the mental & physical benefits for myself...Others have their therapy of choice and couldn't stand to walk, but that is why we are called "individuals"...

Have a wondeful week!

Tues-Wed-Thurs-Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon: Nothing

I'm down a half-pound on my weigh-in today. On my measurements I'm down just 1/8th inch overall. Those don't mean all that much to me because I haven't done any wt trng for so long. (It's nice to say I'm down, but I know why--very little lean is happening here!)

I did a considerable amount of mowing, weedeating and cleanup on Thursday, but I'm not counting it toward my activity. I've tracked my food this past week, but this is not an update of that. Will have to do that later.

I was lazy and the week was crazy;-)

The challenge fell by the wayside, though I plan to pick it up starting tomorrow.

4-Day Challenge (W-Th-F-S) starts today with these daily goals:
1600 cal, 100 oz water, >25g fiber, at least 1 hr purposeful activity.

Congrats on the loss. Hey every bit counts....Have a wonderul day.


thinnsidenotout on 04/23/2008:
Isn't the weight you are now, at or past the goal marke that you had when I first started DD....I know you were within just a couple/few pounds, then you changed it...

Congratulations at any rate!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!


shadetree on 04/23/2008:
Half a pound is half a pound...and while you may not consider it formal exercise, mowing and weedwhacking most certainly is exercise!:) Have a good one!


thinnsidenotout on 04/25/2008:
RE: Weight Training...I have a set of 2 lb. (or something like that) & 5lb. weights. I need to dig them out......I have also been doing some wall push-ups for my upper body...I learned a couple days ago when I put on one of my old bras in a hurry, that my "taloolas" are shrinking as well : ( I threw the bra away! As well as bagging up my clothes that now are too big...

I plan on measuring myself 2 weeks after initial measurement, cause I am back at the walking daily now....

Have a wonderful weekend and THANKS for the reccomendation on the book....

I still haven't decided to count mowing toward my activity numbers. Besides the walking-pushing-pulling (though it's self-propelled) it's not the healthiest thing to do!

Thanks for coming to my defense....

When comes time to put those pictures on the bulletin board...I have my church key and will make sure that "my" photo will go missing... There are advantages to being the church custodian and hostess.... : - ) I know that she will come back to me, but that will give the opportunity for me to TELL her that I really did not appreciate her "doing as she pleased" and disregarded my polite request of bypassing my "mug shot".... Our church is going through some major "upsets" right now and the best for me to do is to wait for the RIGHT time to approach her about it and I WILL! Oh, I WILL!!!... : - )

Have a wonderful day!


thinnsidenotout on 04/14/2008:
I shall dig out a tape measure and get to measuring this bountiful substance of mine... Not sure I will do it right, but at least I will be able to tell differences when there is any....

Thanks!


mmuraro on 04/14/2008:
Good luck with the challenge, thats great!

Hope you have a good evening!

I'm down a half-pound on my Tuesday weigh-in. I was down a half-pound last week as well. No measurements this week--I'll shoot for 1 week from next Tuesday.

Not doing any activity to speak of has been my choice as opposed to being overcome by events--haha! Of course I didn't intend to slack off this long, so it's time to put my nose back to the grindstone!

So here are my goals: Water 80 oz, count calories, etc and maintain at least a 1000 cal/day deficit. Scheduled Circuit Workouts otherwise no particulars for activity.

An average breakdown and yesterday's numbers as usual.
