For my activity:
Sat: Mowing 3 hrs; Gutter cleaning 30 min; Walk 60 min
Sun-Tues: Nothing

I'm down 1.5 pounds for my weigh-in today! Writing food down and Fitday counting starts today. Also want to incorporate the 1hr/day (at least) exercise--would like for it to be pre-brkfst, but beggars can't be choosers:-)

I want to take advantage of the little (teeny-tiny) bit of momentum of yesterday's recorded LOSS--seems like it's been forever!

Plan for today: NTrack, Circuit Workout, Walk

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!


RMR = 1348

Progress as of today: 23.5 lbs lost so far, only 5.5 lbs to go!

I like to exercise first thing in the morning but I rarely do what with kids and work so along as I do something, sometime im happy with that! have a good day


liza36 on 05/06/2009:
That's a great loss! Keep up the momentum.


Maria7 on 05/06/2009:
Good plan on the exercise and congratulations on your new lower number!


MoodyMe on 05/06/2009:
Congrats on the loss!! Looks like you've been getting alot of activity in lately! WTG!


CritterMom on 05/07/2009:

Most excellent on your weight loss! Kudos! It feels soooooooo good to be done 1.5 more pounds, doesn't it! :) You're doing a great job with the exercise too. Keep on keepin' on!


Maria7 on 05/09/2009:
Hope you are doing well, Biscottibody.

I just want to thank you for advising and inspiring me to buy a bicycle helmet, which I finally did today. Had you not said anything, I probably wouldn't have thought of it.

Take good care of yourself. Love, Maria

Tues: NordicTrack (pre-bkfst) 23 min/2.1 mi; Walk 10 min
Wed: NordicTrack 61 min/6.1 mi; Walk 10 min
Thur: Driving 3 hrs
Fri: Nothing

I'm down a pound on my weekly Tuesday weigh-in! Meanwhile today I have to mow and since all my soreness is gone from the push early in the week, I will do something else (other than mowing) for an hour. However, it won't be pre-breakfast.

Plan for today this week:
Ex: 1 hr of something pre-brkfst--NTrack, Bike, Airdyne, Walk
Food: Write down in notebook, possibly use fitday--we'll see . . .

Mon:
Plan going well so far.

Tues:
Plan going okay for today. Only got about 30 min activity in--NTrack was pre-bkfst, walk was later on.

Wed:
NTrack was after eating something. Was quite sore from the other day. My endurance sucks, but is getting noticeably better--can't complain about that!

Thur:
No organized activity geared toward furthering my fitness--haha! Plan totally pooped out starting today. Acknowledging this fact and will try again starting Sunday.

Fri:
Not much to further myself food- or fitness-wise.
 

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

For my activity:
Thurs-Sat: Nothing

I'm going to commit to a weekly entry for now. Biting off more than I can chew has become a way of life--both foodwise and trying to do more than I'm capable of within a 24-hour period. I'm committing to changing that. As I may have written previously, I can see where this behavior will get me. It's not a good scenario.

Taking things minute-by-minute is vital to my not losing any more ground at this point! I must try while I can still see the forest for the trees!

nimony on 04/26/2009:
I hear you Biscotti. Glad to hear you're taking things minute by minute to stay on track. We need to do that sometimes. I also understand committing to a weekly entry for now. It takes time to write updates and offer encouragement to others, esp. now that it's nice outside. Same here on all accounts! Good luck to you this week. I'll be cheering you on! Looking forward to your entry next week.


WI_HashiHypo on 04/27/2009:
Sometimes it is easier to just recap the week and not dwell every day on every missed step. I think doing it weekly helps us focus more on the hilights..after all, who wants to report sucky day after sucky day..it gives us motivation sometimes to do more with the week!

Self-pity is our worst enemy, and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in the world. --Helen Keller

For my activity:
Tues: Yardwork
Wed: Walk 40 min; 30 min Trimming Tree Limbs

I was more than sore enough yesterday--probably more from Tuesday's yardwork--I spent about 2 hours trimming hedges and about 1 hour sucking up/grinding leaves, which involved lots of bending and squatting. Since I haven't been doing this stuff the last couple months I'm kinda out of shape for it. So rather than risk injuring myself by pushing another circuit workout yesterday, I'll plan on it for today!

It was 95degF here yesterday--takes a few days of 90s to get used to, but I love it!

I'm counting calories again as of yesterday--will include an average next Tuesday. The goal wt below is about the halfway point between the weights for obese and overweight (BMI scale).

Only 8 pounds to your goal weight! Good for you!

On my weigh-in I'm up 3 lbs--no measurements--will do them next Tuesday. A moderate amount of soreness started yesterday and continued today, but I've got another workout tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it.

Come to think of it I'm looking forward to MOVING FORWARD! I've been stagnant long enough--it's nice that I'm not up more pounds than I am:-)

For my activity: Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (16 min/1.4 mi)

No walk. Until yesterday, it had been 77 days since I last did any wt trng (my circuit wkt). I did it all except the mountain climbers. I used 10# dumbbells--contrast when last I wt trnd, I was about to increase my dumbbell to 17#. I'll get back in due course. So I feel good about it. What more could I ask for:-)

At  my highest weight--189--my BMI was 32.4 (obese by BMI standard). I'm still in the overweight BMI category. BMI-wise I would have to weigh at most 145 to be in the normal category.

Back on due course ~ Good Idea!...Me too.......

i was definitely getting quite negative as of late. wowsers. i am sure this break, a week off, will do me some good. also some ability to catch up with everything i need to accomplish...i'm in the process of trying to get a job for summer, while in school, but i need money.

For my activity:
Thurs:  Mowing 1 hour
Fri & Sat: Nothing

I had a little junk food blowout yesterday. Pizza. Actual potato chips with a great-tasting jalapeno dip. A bunch of Lindt Dk Choc Truffles. A little Coke--the bev not the drug. A couple of tacos, one with fresh-tasting pico de gallo. Some salt and vinegar Pringles. Half of a banana. A few MSG-laden croutons. Oh and a few mini eclairs and some Smarties. And coffee with FF milk. Other than a little orange juice and a bowl of quinoa, the FF milk, banana and salad were probably the only things that "tried" to be healthy:-)

This wasn't a binge. I more or less knew I was going to eat with some abandon. I didn't overeat. And though putting so much fat into my body made me feel like a ready-made lard cake--I just don't overeat anymore. Thanks to one or two techniques in that book I always recommend, Overcoming Overeating.

So I've missed two days of entries. My motivation to make an entry is very much based on exercise and my need to report it here. It's the one thing that I always report here having started that routine many years ago. Unfortunately the actual exercise routine is a little rusty of late!

I've been hungry for dark chocolate, but haven't had any yet. Your Lindt dark chocolate truffles sound really yummy. I might have to look for those and save them for special treats for myself once in awhile. I have to compliment you on not overeating when you did your "little junk food blowout." My stomach can't seem to handle that much junk food all at the same time any more. Hopefully yours was okay. Glad to hear you're still exercising, even if the routine is a bit rusty. I am noticing your BMI. Not sure where you were when you started, but yours isn't too bad right now, and your goal is very reasonable. Keep on keepin' on.


Maria7 on 04/20/2009:

The best way out is always through. --Robert Frost

For my activity:
Short walk; Yard work

I didn't get my NTrack workout in, but other than that I did pretty well.

I'm noticing that my age group is aging faster than what it seemed my mother's (and her generation) and even my grandmother's (though I remember that through a child's memory) age group experienced. I guess it's the number of people I know who are my age with diabetes, gallbladder problems, reflux disease, sleep apnea, obesity and early heart disease, among other things.

Also there's the inability to cope without using one or another drug--alcohol, anti-depressants, anti-anxiety drugs, illegal drugs (of course) or nicotine. (I guess you could also throw caffeine in there as well.) I'm sort of contrasting my friends with our parents and it just doesn't bode well for us baby boomers. We don't seem to be a good example for the generations after us either, unfortunately. We don't seem to manage our stress well, so all the coping mechanisms go hand in hand.

We certainly don't have time for the recommended "Eat right and exercise"--haha!

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. --Jacob A. Riis 

For my activity lately:

March 29-31
Sun-Tues: Nothing

April 1-14
Wed-Tues: Nothing but a little yardwork

I haven't weighed myself for two weeks--I'll do so again next Tuesday. I was up a half-pound on the last weigh-in. I did a few short walks in the above rundown, but it obviously wasn't anything of significance.

Oh, a big ol' shoutout to greengirl--thanks for dropping by my diary--hope all's well with you these days!

I'm committing to making an entry here every day--'til further notice!

I will mow for the first time this season--my neighbor has mowed 2 or 3 times already. I have been a lazy ass for so long (all things considered) that it's going to seem like I'm trying to raise myself from the dead (cobwebs and all) I'm afraid! Oh well, I can do it--I don't see myself being a complete slug for the following crucial weeks of getting "in shape" and then complaining at the end of Summer how bad I feel and how fat I am.

Plus I have a brand new pair of a new model of the same running shoes I've worn forever--who could ask for anything more:-) Nothing says S*P*R*I*N*G like a new pair of shoes!

If I can't find the motivation, then I'm going to at least get into a routine of some sort while I'm searching for motivation. I had a built-in motivation for a long time, and now I have to find a new motivation. Going back in time doesn't work for me. I have to put one foot in front of the other today and put the past behind me.

Other than all that, I'm going to gradually get back to basics. I'm in danger of becoming my own personal "Two Ton Tessie." It's painful, clothes don't fit like I'd like them to--I actually split my pants one day last week--my underwear sort of matched my pants and it was late in the day of a very active, very long, ultimately tiring but rewarding day--so I simply didn't give a sh*t by the time I realized how big the split had gotten--it really wasn't THAT big--nevertheless it was a rip caused by my too fat bottom being poured into too small pants!

Plan for today: Walk, NTrack, Yard Work

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

Justine6Robert3 on 04/16/2009:
Thank-you.....I'm trying to get back on track! I do better when I make a point of making entries here as well :0) I'm sure you'll get back into it, you sound as if you have a plan. One day at a time is the only way! Thanks for the giggle, I was picturing you walking around with your pants split in the back....good thing your undies "almost matched" HA!!! Stick with it, I'll know you'll do great once you clear out the cobwebs :0) :0)
