It's always fun to come back and tell how I gained a bunch (in the grand scheme--4 pounds is a lot for me to gain at this point). Maybe it even cracks some people up. Well it's not funny--I have been doing nothing but exercise to further my cause--good food choices have gone south. And now I'm in a quandary regarding my running shoes. So I may be doing just walking instead until I can get a grip and figure out just which shoes I'll get next. I don't think I can get my old standbys--but I'm going exploring later, so I'll let ya'll know. Like ya'll really care--hahaha!

Not going to take measurements this week--the scale is demoralizing enough for me today--thank you very much!

Cheers to you all!

Girl, SMACK yo-self for the rest of us! So what, you gained ... get it off. You have been doing a great job for a long time (I hope I stay focused as long as you have) so, whatever is bugging you pluck it out of yo butt and get to doing what you know to do. You are a conqueror so go out and conquer those 4 pounds. There, guess I told YOU! xoxoxo Cynthia

I can tell you're at a low ebb today and it's understandable. ..tomorrow's a new day, things will start getting better i'm sure..keep your chin up and i'm sure you will begin to feel more positive..i believe a positive determined mind can conquer any mountain, don't give up....love and very best wishes...Paula x


Runner on 03/22/2005:
HI, Biscotti! My advice for running shoes is to stick with the Brooks...order them online if you can't find them in the stores! I wore Asics for 3 years but gave them up completely when I tried Brooks! I prefer the Brooks Adrenaline or Brooks Epiphany. If you go to a good store, a salesperson should help you find the right fit for your feet. Good luck!


goldcat on 03/22/2005:
You'll get back on track chickie! You're doing great. Maybe it's just muscle weight or even water weight. Give it a week and I bet you'll be back down again...Chin up! Stephanie PS...I do care. I always read your Diary when you post. ;0)

Pretend there's a "fast fitness drive-thru" restaurant. That's what I kind of got yesterday--except it was good for me. I increased the weight on my dumbbells. No harm done, fewer reps, better for me!

I think today will be it, I put my template back down at the bottom of the page (optimism)--I must try to lose some weight.

Cheers to you all!

Just keeping working your plan Girlie. You know what it takes to get where you want to go. I know those words sound cliche but then a lot of life is cliche. Just a little over a year ago you were at the doorstep of your goal weight, you WILL get there again with proper planning. We're depending on you "OLDTIMER"! he he he he ... don't get mad ... get glad and go to work! xoxoxoxo Cynthia

I WILL get in the Circuit today! No excuses! No regrets! I was still a little too wiped out for it yesterday. I'm getting some sleep though--7.5 hours and 8 for the other day--so I'm getting better on that note.

I'm so glad I'm able to jog. It's the single most wonderful thing I do for myself. I enjoy it. Oh, did I tell you how much I like to jog--even though I go at a turtle-ish pace some days--it's great for my outlook and my self-esteem!

Cheers to you all!

You know it never occurred to me that Schlotsky's would sell pizza. There is one in the area but I haven't gone there yet. The name conjures up visions of corned beef on rye w/a kosher pickle, a bagel w/lox, etc. NOT pizza! I need a commercial establishment for pizza because doing it myself is such a long, involved process. I'll tell about it tomorrow.

You're so right about the size of strombolis. Geez! Mine was SO big. Next time I'll try the calzone which was a bit smaller. You see it's already in my warped mind to stray!

Beware the Ides of March--and all that jazz--beware my 46th birthday this Saturday--ooohh! now that's scary!!!

I didn't get the Circuit in--just too tired--got 8 hours sleep though--woo-hoo! So will try to get it in today. Also dragging my ass to jog last night was tough--but I was glad I did it--who wouldn't be--hahaha!

On my weigh-in I'm somewhere between 160 and 165. Not taking measurements this week. At least I know where I am. It's good to get unwrapped from around the axle:-)--or at least start unwrapping!

Back to normal (what's that???) soon--hahahaha!

Cheers to you all!

For the time being I'm not tracking my food--just moderate food choices. I may start back tomorrow. I may start back next week. I may start back next month. I will weigh in tomorrow--but I don't have high hopes for a loss. I still believe in challenges, but my heart's just not in it right now. I did well on the water on the second day of this one, but kind of gave up after that. Sleep and getting more of it was my highest priority.

As for the exercise, I'm doing great--I have a Circuit scheduled for today--which includes 20 min of concentrated weight work. It's very life-affirming to me!

Cheers to you all!

Brenda Kay on 03/14/2005:
You are so active - great job! I am just new to reading the diaries but I had to note that I love circuits - talk about effective too :)

I agree - sleep is A1 priority for health and happiness - it is THE KEY to weight loss, improved health, sanity etc..


squiggly on 03/14/2005:
i hope you get the rest you need. Sleep is ideal for weight loss. You burn cals in your sleep. I wish you the best.

For my activity: NordicTrack 53 min/6.2 mi;

I'm doing a 3-Day Challenge (Thurs-Sat) with the goals as above. I met 2 out of 3 goals--missed the water goal.

I meant to write this in here earlier: It was exceedingly hard for me to get through my workout yesterday. I haven't been getting more than about 5-6 hours of sleep. I was really pushing it to get my jog in, but ya' know it was worth slogging through. Getting some momentum under my belt after a couple of days of bad food choices really pumps me up for the coming days.

Also I counted up the days I did my weight workouts for all of last year. I did pretty well up through March and then slacked off, having done just about that many--16--to total 33 for the entire year--NOT GOOD! (I do total body workouts, then skip 2 days between for rest.)

Weatherwise, I'm actually going to have to mow and treat for fire ants--it's going to be in the mid-80s tomorrow.

Cheers to you all!

You're still hanging in there and doing great!! But, girl, you need more sleep! Looks like our weather is about the same as yours. Whoopee for us, huh? Have a great weekend!


geevee on 03/12/2005:
Thanks for the site, Biscotti! I read all the comments to poor Edna. There seemed to be quite a few in her weight category. Makes me sound petulant complaining about my couple of pounds gain. I'm going to go back and check out the bulletin board, chat room, etc. I like the set up of the site. Is there ever enough time?

I'm working on a letter to my doctor. I want it to be "right". I like him a lot. He's just a stupid male, I suppose, but he needs to be straightened out. If it weren't for him, I would never have lost any weight so I give him credit for my success. I would like it to continue but his scale is not good for my health and mental well-being.

I'm on my way! Had a big food day yesterday--made a double batch of full-butter (unsalted) choc chip cookies--only ate about 10 (su-u-u-rrre good:-)--froze most of them for gifts for later.

TV really is a sad state of affairs isn't it, but we (as a whole) watch this crap. Case in point: THE CONTENDER--one of the people "contending" ultimately blows his brains out (apparently because he didn't win*), and they're still airing the whole thing, assuming it gets good ratings. Good God!

*Update: Apparently there was a bidding war for the show, delaying it's airing and the boxers were paid $1500/week in the meantime and told not to compete until the show aired, or something like that. So maybe it was a combination of factors for this man to take his life. I had just seen something that said he was eliminated from the final. No, I didn't make this up!

Cheers to you all!

Man ... another GREAT quote! WHAAAAATTTTT ... I don't watch much TV ... vaguely remember hearing of a show called THE CONTENDER ...
