Calories/Fat grams: Thurs::2351/84 Fri::2609/108 Sat::1982/87 Sun::1696/57

Since I can't make everything a priority (haha!) I decided that if things begin to suffer (food choices, exercise, water) in my weight loss endeavor, the one thing that I won't skip is my circuit workout. I fully intend to get in more activity in the coming goal week (W-Tues), because the last one has fizzled. (Being the potty mouth I am--not the f-word I'd choose, but . . .)

I ended up skipping just about all of my normal scheduled activity. It happens. I only did a little over half of my circuit on Thursday (9 of 15 exercises) with plans to do the other half the next day--didn't do it. I don't really build a rest day into my routine, so when I know I need rest I MUST turn my back on the activity--the body knows!

anyways, my day has gone pretty well! Keep up the good work...have a good week!

CharlieAngel on 02/06/2008:
You are so right...the body just knows when it's time to quit. I think that I am having one of those days today. I am just slap worn out! Take care of yourself and tomorrow, get back on track. Blessings.

borntocry on 02/01/2008:
Well I'm here to assure you that the calf problems can indeed resurface at any time. I had the same problem a while back (ironically it was when I was trying to walk some days instead of running) and then it went away and was gone for about a year and now it's back again!! If you have any insight on what causes it, please share! I thought it was running on concrete but these days I've been running in the park, so it makes no sense at all.

CritterMom on 02/01/2008:
Congrats on the dogjog...does that mean the doggie went with ya? My dogs were pulling me along yesterday, so I added a bit of light jogging along the way.

My calves used to get tight, and I would get a cramp in the arch of my foot, too. Hasn't been a problem in a while now. Yippee!

caz on 02/01/2008:
wow sounds like you're on a roll...keep it up !!

borntocry on 02/01/2008:
Hi biscotti!

Thanks for the comment. You're right - it was Tabbylove!

Drew Bledsoe did play for the Patriots, I think, but I didn't know him then. I only "discovered" him a year ago when he was playing for Dallas. So I only got to be a fan for, like, half a season before he got benched and retired. Story of my life! Just like all the discontinued food products!

But yeah, I don't really hate the Patriots - they're just irritatingly unstoppable right now.

I'm afraid I would have to advise against the heart rate monitor - at least the kind I have (which is, I can't remember what exactly, but I think the brand is Polar - I'll check and get back to you on that). I hate to say this because it was a very thoughtful birthday present from my husband a couple of years ago, but it turned out to be kind of useless. First of all, the readings didn't seem to be very accurate. They didn't seem to shift much even when I changed speed quite drastically. And very often they would fall down to 0 as if the monitor wasn't picking up my heart rate. Which could have been because the belt didn't fit very well, but on the other hand, this happened quite often even when it was fitting snugly. And lastly, even when the monitor was working well, it wasn't really all that helpful to know my heart rate. I mean, you know when you're pushing yourself and when you're not. You don't really need a heart rate monitor to tell you that, especially when it isn't all that reliable in the first place.

I hit the 80 oz water goal on four days and the cardio (1 hr/day) goal on three days. I got my jogging in as scheduled.

So I cut nearly 550 calories/day on average from the previous week--I think that's progress!

Don't you wish that it was always so easy to stick to your plan?It's so hard to get into the right mindset. Once I do that, there's no problem. BUT, once I get off, it can be ages before I recover just like this past year. Good luck on sticking with it!

Well finally a break in the monotonous/less-than-satisfying weigh-ins--for this past Saturday I was down 1.5 pounds! I also did my measurements, and I'm down nearly an inch overall from last time. (I'm changing my weigh-in/measurements day to Saturday 'til further notice:-)

I haven't been getting in my 1 hr cardio minimum every day. It's a little too late in my week (goal-wise) to make up for it. It defeats the purpose anyway. I'm doing vastly better on average with calories/fat than in previous weeks--still have room for improvement.

I didn't want to do any weight training yesterday, so I just made myself do it. I knew I'd have to do it today or tomorrow anyway. I'm glad I got it out of the way!

Hey! Well done, you! This is your lowest weight in a while, isn't it?

I haven't been getting in the one hour of cardio either. I'm beginning to think it's just an impossible dream...

About that diarist I mentioned a while ago. I think her name was Pauline or Paula or something. And it wasn't that long ago - maybe a year or two? I might have to look through some of my old entries to see if I can find any comments from her to remind me of her handle. The only thing I can remember about her right now is that she had an ex who had killed himself. They used to play tennis together. That was so sad... if it was true...

shadetree on 01/29/2008:
HOORAY! POUND AND A HALF! That's fantastic!

Thanks for taking the time to write all you wrote about Mom....however, she is not one to do any sort of physical therapy. She HATES exercise.

I'm just taking it one day at a time with the good Lord's help.

Thanks again and keep up the good work!

I know hardly anyone is going to find this amusing, but I caught (or it caught me) a quite a bit of the Celebrity Rehab Trainwreck on VH1. How funny and sad and yet funny, but not funny or sad in a good way. Simply pathetic. And a teaching moment with your sophisticated 10y/o (or over) to watch and discuss. This is the kind of thing (sans the nudity or overtly nasty stuff) that I was forced to see in a seemingly endless supply of movies in 6th grade to deter us from using drugs. Thankfully it worked for me--to the best of my knowledge--haha!

What on earth does that Jeff Conaway live off of? Could he possibly get enough from residuals (payments from each showing/sale) of Grease and Taxi to live and be addicted for apparently many years? He seems to be in about the same shape as Brian Wilson (Beach Boys).

I saw Conaway on a clip of the TVLand Awards (last year?) and he was a mess on that. He seems to actually be understood verbally toward the end of this episode, so he's on the verge of drying out or so it seems. It ended with him about to discharge himself. He is still a handsome man despite his hard-luck (I guess) life.

I kept thinking what if Elvis were still alive today, would he be on here--I suppose--if he had lost his fortune somehow. Can you imagine a show with old dried up Elvis, Janis, Jimi, John (Belushi) . . . etc (before they died from overdoses and be the ages they'd be now, may they rest in peace). The limits of reality TV are seemingly boundless. And to think that Candid Camera--reality TV in its way--kept us amused in days gone by. They didn't go out of their way to hurt anyone in any way. Too tame by Celebrity Drug Addict/Washed-Up Sister of Mariah Carey/Female Pro Wrestler Addict (I guess) Rehab standards. I never caught what any of them were addicted to. What a waste of humanity and my time!

I just thought of Debbie Reynolds. She should have been a washed-up Hollywood starlet many many many (too many) years ago. She was taken to the cleaners by at least two husbands. Her story is quite unbelievable--but it's not fashionable to rise above the crap in the toilet of your life anymore. Apparently. I haven't seen her around, but she was working in her own nightclub in Las Vegas maybe 5 years ago. Those Made shows on MTV are probably more my speed (reality TV-wise), though if they had it, I'd certainly watch Celebrity Viagra/Cialis/Levitra Addict--haha!

I didn't mean to offend anyone with this. I mean above all--TV is supposed to be entertaining. This program was awful, except as a cautionary tale. Any clue as to the celebrity addicts slated for next season;-)

so, you are writing right now...

based on your last entry:

I know you can do 8 circuits...mind over matter! Enjoy your Saturday!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/26/2008:
You are an awesome writer! I must say, I felt like I was following a complex (in a good way) review!

Your circuits sound very much like Curves. I have never tried the Curves program - its a gym for women and they do cicuits with cardio mixed in. But, I always keep it in the back of my mind as a good exercise program to try when I get sick of what I'm doing now...if that ever happens!

workingit2 on 01/26/2008:
I watched that show as well, it was disgusting! They had that porn star on, it was GROSS. I am just not interested in watching the dramatic lives of these trainwrecks! I found it pathetically funny..I guess they all ended up being characitures of themselves in the end, eh? Hopefully if kids do watch that mess, they decide not to use drugs lol. Scary!

Thanks for the entry in my diary...I feel the same way about you!

Have a great day =)

CharlieAngel on 01/26/2008:
I was lured into watching it for a bit as well. So pathetically sad. Hope you have an awesome weekend. Great job on the circuits.

Hiya,thanks for your kind words.Yes i came to a bithday milestone where you think enough is enough carrying all this weight around.My mum died young(49)and she started to be unwell @ 40 so it gave me a wake up call,plus i know if she where still alive she would go mad at me for being this size,so watch this space!!Your doing well it's coming of steadily which is the best way.If i put my mind to it my weight comes off quickly and i eat well too.I've done 2hrs exercise this morning plus walking around the town to get some bits and bobs my feet are tingling i think i will give then a soak arrhh!!Anyway keep up the good work,catch up soon,Julie

They are very easy to take care of and you can train them to stay on your shoulder (they especially love hoods) If you have any specfic questions let me know :)

Really thought the calories would be much higher for yesterday. Nevertheless I'm back nearer the groove today!

For the weekly recap of goals met or not: Calories were <2000 on two days only (Avg: 2409), all planned Circ Wkts done--in fact I'm on a roll there at eight straight. I only hit the 80 oz water and cardio (1 hr/day) goals on two days.

My goals for the coming week are to keep my calories below 1800 and fat should be <75 grams (that's a start and I think doable). The rest of the goals remain the same. As for jogging, I'm trying to get to it the day before the circuit.

borntocry on 01/24/2008:
Hmm. Maybe the circuit workouts are making you hungry? Or is it all the high-fat baked goods which are bringing the calorie count up?

I have been going through a major pastry obsession myself lately. And I have the same problem where it seems I never get full. Until recently I didn't even know what it felt like. But you know, there was someone on this site once (from England) who had the same problem as us, and used it to her advantage by reasoning that she found it easier to stick to her diet as she was used to being hungry all the time anyway. (She rapidly got down to her goal weight, then started complaining that she had lost too much weight and needed to gain some back, then deleted all her entries and disappeared from the site - remember her?)

No measurements: by the time I should have done them, I had started eating. Eating for a two-headed, two-stomached alien life form. I mentioned it's supposed to warm up by the end of the weekend, but before then we're in the deep freeze and it's damp. I'm blaming the weather as much as my lack of control;-)

It started with some lovely scones (full of butter) I made that lasted for two days, I had the last one of them yesterday. But most of my food choices throughout yesterday were also high fat. So my jog was really odd. I waited awhile after eating so I wasn't full by any stretch of the imagination, however I could really feel the effects of all the fat I had consumed--it's like it settled down into each leg making me feel like I had on lead boots.

The other thing I noticed is that though in my head I was struggling, though not bad enough to stop or break it up into segments, my heart rate didn't go past 120 upon stopping. It's usually 140 to 150--so other than the fact that I made it through 20 minutes feeling like I was trudging through quicksand, there was no endurance training effect whatsoever. We live and we learn if we're lucky:-)

Gotta cut the fat--even the usual 60-80 grams I report--I know GeeVee used to remind me of this. It's got to be done, no more putting it off!

Why do I have to be so compelled to eat massive amounts of high-fat baked goods all at once? I know I'm not the only one here who struggles with this--it's pretty common--donuts, candy--though that's not my weakness, sometimes ice cream--I did have ice cream yesterday for the first time in awhile. It's been in the freezer for a couple of months, but I insisted that I just needed to have some with hot fudge topping! Why? (Yeah it was good!)

It's disturbing in a way, but I just don't get full. Satisfied, but I'm not even remotely full. That's not a justification to overeat, though if I could get away with it and not gain a pound I would. So I guess that is one thing I've learned to do pretty well--not stuff myself, though I come close with pizza. (If I had any scones left right now, I'd be planning to devour them soon--haha!)

I'm blaming the weather. And I'm getting back to it for the evening. Plan for supper is low-fat cornmeal pancakes with some plain old pintos I made yesterday. They're good fiberriffic eatin' for sure:-)

Plan for today: Circuit Workout, NTrack, Walk

Don't give up!

I'm going to start bragging about you to my friends... I can't believe that I know someone who is capable of having hot fudge in the pantry. I would SO have eaten every spoonful from the jar WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY before it had time to meet up with ice cream! Cornmeal pancakes? What are these? Dessert? They sound delicious even though I don't know what they are :) Good job there with the fiber and water, BB. Sometimes we just hit a rough patch; and, not to commiserate with defeating behaviors, I really do believe that we are battling a basic fact of nature... in the winter we want to eat to stay warm and in the summer we want to gobble fruit and all matter of drinks to stay cool. Howeverrrrrrrrrr, when a woman's body is invaded by monsters, all bets are off, right? Thank you for the congrats. I'll be so happy when I progress abit in my exercise pursuits that I can ask you more about heat rate issues, endurance, Fitday, etc. I am ignorant of such matters. Here's to Saturday! By the way, what ever happened to mugg/muggg. When I was last here, she had made a decision to move to another state, was looking for a job there... She was always making that homemade ice cream and finding wonderful things at yard sales.

compelled to eat high fat baked goods....LOL. isn't that the source of fat for our whole nation! LOL

That's weird you don't get full...maybe you eat really slowly??? I've tried eating slow and that's what happens, i don't really get stuffed as food is digesting while i am eating better than when i eat quickly and digestion gets all blocked up. or maybe what you eat doesn't have much fiber...like the pizza/pastries.

enjoy your evening.

I find that I am okay without the high-fat baked goods, but if I have even a taste, then it's all over with. I just start devouring and can't stop. it's crazy!
