Lend yourself to others, but give yourself to yourself. --Michel de Montaigne

For my activity:
Walk 35 min; NordicTrack 22 min/2.2 mi; Airdyne 12 min/2.5 mi

Instead of the bike ride, I hopped on the Airdyne for a few min yesterday evening. Better than blowing off the whole thing!

My fitness is improving, which means I can do more--woo-hoo!

Plan for today: Walk, NTrack, Bike Ride

Eat! Exercise! Focus! Enjoy!

Self-respect is the root of discipline: The sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself. --Abraham Joshua Heschel

For my activity: Walk 47 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (16 min/3.1 mi)

Didn't get in the bike ride yesterday.

Today I'm the same as last week's weigh-in. As for measurements, I'm down a little more than a half-inch overall--better than nothing. I must focus a little more on the food choices and overall calories. The fat is way too high as well--has been for too long, and I thought I would wait to start changing that, but I know I would be better off to jump in and just try to do it!

The higher dumbbell worked out--I just did fewer reps on most exercises as is usual for me when increasing wts. I thought maybe I wouldn't be able to do ANY triceps kickbacks, but I guess the body is an amazing thing and it surprised me!

Didn't get in the walk yesterday.

I would rather have done no activity, but I persevered to get in a little bit anyway! It doesn't make me a better person, but it will make for fewer cobwebs today--you can't put a price on fewer cobwebs--haha! Not to mention that when I have one day of inactivity, it can sometimes lead (and has led) to many days of inactivity.

A note on this past Tuesday's weigh-in, I'm down 5 pounds since July 21st--very lovely! If I actually lose another 5 pounds in another month--I'll be over the moon--not to mention the inches I'll probably lose by then if I stick to my guns!

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. --St Francis de Sales

For my activity:
Walk 30 min; Circ Aer Wkt using Airdyne (7 min/1.1 mi)

I went back in my diary and plucked out some excerpts from past Augusts. Here's one: August 2001 (177#): I'm back to holding my own--so to speak, not down below 177, but my frame of mind is back to the positive--yeah! I noticed that thickening of flesh below my bust is shrinking. That was something that really disturbed me the last few years. I know it seems trivial, but I was thinking that it was just an age/hereditary thing and that I wouldn't be able to get rid of it--thankfully it's just fat!!! THAT I can do something about.

I still have this, though probably not as prominently as then--it's a reality check. Some random person may think I look pretty good, in clothes, but I would still like to see what MY LIFE would be like without the fat right there.  If you're of a certain age you'll remember a TV commercial for Playtex Living Bras where "midriff bulge" is discussed. (I still can't bring myself to call it back fat--that's a body part of a slaughtered pig isn't it?)

I was a little kid and my friends and I got tons of laughs out of that commercial--it's not so funny when it's so persistent here in middle age. Seeing the old commercial would probably still crack me up!

Yesterday's circuit was my 10th in a row--two days skipped between scheduled full body wt trng.

On my bike ride yesterday evening I increased my avg mph to 9.9--of course I pushed myself at a couple of points--and I didn't really notice the increase as I was riding. Lesson learned. I am just so much more equipped to push myself safely since I've been doing my wt trng consistently. More than anything I want to continue to enjoy what I'm doing!

Today was OK and I am grateful for that. Thank you for stopping by my diary to wish me well :-) That really warms my heart :-)

Allow me to say how impressed I am with your weight training! Woo-hoo! I have taken to doing more biking myself. Perhaps I am inspired by your workouts as well, but when I get to the gym, I just get to "itching" to ride the bike. And I ride my own real bike outside as well. (Ooo, that reminds me that there are noon services at church, and I can ride my bike to church!!)

As you say so well, you want to continue to enjoy what you are doing. That is so true.

Saturday's wt trng--9 in a row--two days skipped between scheduled full body wt trng.

Still no Fitday counting--writing down my food in my little notebook though. I'm not using not counting as an excuse to eat with abandon. I still intend to start again this coming Wednesday. I guess I'm just resisting the urge to get wrapped around the axle. Right now my time is better spent not backtracking stuff in Fitday just to have something to show.

I'm in this for the long haul, though I can realistically only take it one day at a time. Eventually I'd like for counting calories (or even the desire thereof) to be a distant memory. To be honest the wt trng is my #1 focus--it's a great feeling!

That's my goal: counting calories to be a distant memory. Yet, being slim and fit! Shall I dare say I can do it?


thinnside40 on 08/17/2009:
Vengeance is a word I am going to use this time of tackling the battle of the bulge... This being the longest stretch of my life to have not went back up to my highest weight and add a few pounds to spare... That is an achievement in itself and I'm proud that I am catching myself slacking & not getting that mentality of "who cares?".. By grab... I care and for myself, plus others..NOT just others!

Here's to taking care of "us" first more often than not!
