Hope you get some good exercise today!

Hi Biscottibody. Just dropping by to say hi. I've been a little short of time this last couple of week but will be back regularly soon. My back is better (thank goodness) but thanks for your good wishes. Keep strong :o)

LOVE the quote!!!


workingit2 on 10/06/2007:
Way to go on getting better with the calories!


legcramps on 10/06/2007:
I have to mention the quote as well - holy man, it's amazing how this quote matched my mood yesterday! You'll never know...thanks for posting it!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/06/2007:
Good calories. totally fine. its ok to not get all planned exercise in. focus on that today. thanks for the continued support! its gonna be a lifelong process for me. i just wish i had someone by my side the whole time - a partner.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/07/2007:
Well, so you were MIA on Saturday! hehe, you must be busy! :)

I also like your quote. There are some people I know that are always "happy." It's like NOTHING can get them down. but, that has to be an act! Meaning, we all have our emotions and a diary is the best place to get them out - within reason. If you're always negative, that can have bad effects as well.

anyway, good quote and keep on moving, biscotti! :)

Just a little better--thank goodness I was able to get in my exercise! No soreness after my very active day yesterday means I'm starting to feel like I'm nearly on an even keel--like some scheduling conflict can't and won't throw me into a tailspin. I have to get there and stay there!

Plan for today: NTrack, Airdyne, Walk

Hope you get some good exercise today!

My averages for everything else are actually pretty good for the week. I did sort of set yesterday as a free day--let's just say it wasn't quite as FREE as it could have been. I don't know if I'll make it an every Tuesday thing--at least I can try to keep the calories down UNTIL next Tuesday!

(Daily: Calories s/b no more than 1700 and water s/b at least 84 oz.)

Plan for today: Circuit Workout, NTrack, Bike Ride, Walk

Have a nice day!

Hi,thanks for your comment.I bought Alfie from a private person,and saw her mum but as you said it could just be a ploy.He has been to the vet this afternoon, as after i bathed him (about 5 times now as he really smelt but i think most of that was coming from his ear infection)alfie was scratting really bad could'nt find anything,but with the state he was in a thought it was best to get some flea treatment.This resulting him being sick again from the car journey.Anyway it is all trial and error.Have a great day,Keep up the good work,Julie


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/03/2007:
well good for you on a free day. like you have said, you gotta live a little and eat and do what makes you happy. whatever it takes for you to get back on track is worth it.


Donkey on 10/03/2007:
I think you're doing pretty well. Do you feel that way too?


workingit2 on 10/04/2007:
You know, I was reading your entry yesterday about the 160's and I feel the same way. I hate being in the 160's and I can't seem to stay out of them! I started weighing myself every day but only recording it on thursdays and I was shocked and sickened to see one day this past week where I actually weighed 169! OMG If I ever see 170 again I will probably pass out. I guess the best we can do is attack it one day at a time. Have a great day!

For my activity: Bike Ride 26 min/4.3 mi; NordicTrack 39 min/4.6 mi; Walk 10 min

Day 27: Calorie goal yes--water goal yes!

On my weigh-in I'm back to where I was 2 weeks ago and on my measurements I'm down .25 inch overall. I'm going to start weighing every day--haven't done that in a few years--I'll only record it here on Saturdays and Tuesdays.

It's a little old being right back where I was--I'm still not bent out of shape about it--but the 160s are tough for me to get past. (I think this is about the 4th or 5th time.) I know that sounds like BS--but if I can get past it--I'm better off in many ways, not least of all in my psyche:-)

The gain could be because of the more consistent weight training I'm doing (5 days out of a possible 10 of full body wt trng for September) or the two essentially "free days" I had over the weekend--doesn't matter--I'm still doing pretty well. My back has returned to normal for now--a huge bullet dodged!

I know that if I buckle down with the food and continue on with my activity that I'll see changes for the better--it's just that simple!

Plan for today: NTrack, Bike Ride, Walk

Hope you get some good exercise today!

It doesn't sound like BS at all to me! Dieting is a life-long process. there is no end and no end to learning either! Congrats on a good calorie and water day! One thing that I believe is good about your eating is that you really mix up calorie days...this is good for the metabolism. It's good not to have all low days or all high. This is my plan the next few months! As always, thanks for the advice. I always take it.

Day 25: Calorie goal no--water goal no!

Calories were at 1800+ already when I ate some really good pizza--so I didn't help myself out, but the pizza was sooo good--well worth it!

Another day pretty much devoid of activity--time passed and I lost my motivation--not to mention OBE. I did a little housework and some niggling chores I'd been putting off, but it's not all done by any means--hahaha! (Speaking for the real me--that's the understatement of the century.)

I did, however, hear a teeny-tiny sound while I was in the shower, which led me to sing "Philadelphia Freedom" (Elton John). Funny how one sound can spark a memory! To HoP: that song has a little french horn riff. Interestingly, the sound also made me think of Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey," which is one of my all-time favorite songs as well as videos.

How in the hell did it get to be October eve already?

Hey, check out this website: EATWILD.com..... it tells you all about grass-fed meats :) Just in case you are curious!

**Ugh, I hate when time goes by and at first I am raring to go and then an hour later you just dont want to get up anymore: gr! It is so annoying! **Are you mad that it is already oct? I thought September went by SOOOO SLOW! Oh and if you like ABC tv shows: tonight is the Desperate Housewives premiere...HAHA, just in case you forgot! :) Have a good day!


Workingit2 on 09/30/2007:
What is it about pizza that makes all of us go crazy? It is like that for me, and with peanut butter as well!

I am with you...how did it get to be October eve? Wow!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/30/2007:
haha, thanks for the shout out!! Even if i never teach or play a single note on the f horn again, I will always enjoy hearing about and listening to music! :)

At least you don't regret eating the delicious pizza!

like you, i cannot believe it's October already! completely scary about how fast this month has passed! i wish the weather would stay though! we have been very lucky here in the northeast to have summer like weather for just about the entire month of September. I'm getting nervous for the winter weather because I hate it!! It's so much more fun to just step outside and not worry what you're going to wear!

Jack was going to be married to Jill, so his father sat him down for a little fireside chat. He says, "Jack, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite, I took off my pants and handed them to your mother and said, here - try these on." So, she did and said, "These are too big, I can't wear them." I replied, "...exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will. Ever since that night we have never had any problems."

"Hmmm," says Jack. He thinks that might be a good thing to try.

Hope you get some good exercise today!

So on his honeymoon, Jack takes off his pants and says to Jill, "Here try these on." So she does and says, "they're too big, they don't fit me."

Jack says, "...exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will, and I don't want you ever to forget that!"

Then Jill takes off her pants, hands them to Jack and says, "Here, you try on mine." So he does and says, "I can't get into your pants." So Jill says, "...exactly. And if you don't change your smartass attitude, you never will."

borntocry on 09/28/2007:
I totally agree with you about colonics (referring to your entry a few days ago). In fact did you know there's even a theory (the "hygiene theory", or something to that effect) that parasites, like bacteria living in the gut, are actually good for us? That's why ulcerative colitis is only found in countries with clean drinking water. Apparently the immune system can go haywire with nothing to fight, which is when it starts attacking itself (at least according to this theory - admittedly one of many). There are even experimental treatments which involve deliberately introducing parasites into the intestines. Sorry to get graphic here, but it's a subject which I sadly know a lot about!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/29/2007:
what a lovely quote. you sound upbeat, even though you didn't meet your calorie goal. Calories were still pretty darn decent! :) keep up the great work!

It was a little too dark to ride outside--and I haven't bought any lights for my bike yet--been looking at 'em--so I just did the Airdyne for a few minutes instead. I also seem to have no lingering back trouble following my wt trng from yesterday, which included 42 each military and sissy pushups--couldn't be more pleased with it all!
