(Short Challenges :: Wt Trng :: Pre-Bkfst Cardio)
Weight: 153.0

Revised the nut limit to .5 oz.

My 5-Day Challenge (W-Th-F-Sa-Su) begins today. It consists of 1) No-added-fat veg only, including blackeyed peas, beans and greens and up to three fruit svgs and no more than .5 oz nuts/day 2) Water--at least 68 oz 3) At least 45 min purposeful cardio daily.

The diarist was Princess_Teacup--didn't read back through her diary, but I did check out her bio. "What is the best thing about you?" was interesting. Fun blast from the past, courtesy of a random memory--haha!

I appreciated all your comments from yesterday's post. After 14ish years on here for me, there are just too many diarists gone by, seemingly never to return. But some do return--the beauty of DDs!

The best thing about DDs is that it's still here, and it keeps me in check like nothing else! I'm still not where I'd like to be, but I haven't gained back to above about 169# (that happened a couple of times). Menopause changed everything for me, so I probably should have started a new diary somewhere in there. Come to think of it, I did have a different diary for awhile, but abandoned it and came back to this one.

Exercise: Nothing

Sleep: 7.5 hrs

Water: 34 oz

Activity Plan: Airdyne; Wts Routine + some other moves

BMI: 26.7 (Still Overweight) :: 24.9--143# = Normal Weight

Body Fat %:
8.12.14 :: 33.8%; 9.8.14 :: 33.9% :: 11.18 tbd
(first goal = 30%; second goal = 24%)

You one of the true veterans on here biscuit.

I was not aware that this site has been going on so long. Have a great day and a successful first day of your challenge.

(Short Challenges :: Wt Trng :: Pre-Bkfst Cardio)
Weight: 153.0

I'm up .8 pound for my weigh-in today.

Tomorrow I will begin a 5-Day Challenge (W-Th-F-Sa-Su) consisting of 1) No-added-fat veg only, including blackeyed peas, beans and greens and up to three fruit svgs and no more than 1 oz nuts/day 2) Water--at least 68 oz 3) At least 45 min purposeful cardio daily. (I think that about covers it:-)

I must give credit to Kyrin--a diarist who dragged me back here when I stopped posting for a time early on. I probably wouldn't have come back had she not hauled me back in. She hasn't posted in 6 years or so, but she's the one who showed me that challenges were worthwhile.

Some or all of you may think this is crazy, but I just thought of a certain diarist who hasn't posted in years--can't remember her name. (It's killing me--but I'll eventually remember her name I'm sure:-)

I've been here for so long and the place was sooo active many years ago. I have posted nearly every day (had a couple of extended breaks too) for years. There were three men who posted daily for quite awhile. There have been some interesting characters. It's a unique experience that I wouldn't expect too many currently posting to quite understand. These diarists weren't my friends--we didn't have "real-life" reunions. But some people have such memorable diaries (they're all still accessible) that I can't help but remember--haha.

Many of you may not get what I'm talking about. I used to suggest diaries to newer people to read--ones where someone lost a lot of weight in a healthy way. I don't do that anymore. The vibe of DDs is very different now.

As a sad aside, there were two diarists that I can think of who were going through some things and about all I can think is that they died. Their regular, colorful postings simply stopped. Then there's one who has at least 3 or more separate diaries. I know she's probably out there reading from time to time. Hope springs eternal!

There's a Facebook page for the diaries--not public--hidden, secret, whatever. Probably goes without saying, I'm not a member. Personally I think it helped put DDs on life support--along with time, change and all that jazz. And all the "moderators" for it don't post anymore--the greater internet world has sort of left DDs in the dust.

There's my little slice of ranting for awhile I'm sure:-)

Hey, but I'm glad I'm here and that you're all here!

Sounds like a great challenge!

Life is filled with people that come on our path some good some soso and some amazing people that we never forget. Good luck with your 4 day challenge. Have a great day.

biscottibody59 on 10/28/2014:
Oops--your comment made me realize it's a 5-day:-)

Fixed it above.


nosetwitch on 10/28/2014:
Your post resonated with me. It's weird how attached you can feel to people online. Or maybe just nostalgic for the way things used to be. I think you're right about DD. There are newer, flashier sites that have replaced this one. I prefer the simplicity of this site though.


thinkpositive on 10/28/2014:
Yes, I do get what you are saying, When I was in Singapore Dd was a lifeline- an active group - you included -who helped me and connected with me. I actually met one of the members who lives near me & that was very cool. It is different from what is was four years ago but some very nice people with interesting stories. Thanks for sticking with it. And good luck with your challenge. Although Moogie ( Did I get the name right) told me that luck doesn't have anything to do with it! BTW , I do see a few of the old members on FB, but not as DD members.


museumgirl on 10/29/2014:
I'm newer here, so I don't have a frame of reference. But already I've come to rely on people here for support and encouragement. I like reading their posts, too, and I worry when they don't post for a few days.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/29/2014:
I get exactly what you are saying - being a long standing member myself :) I always forget when I joined. Need to take a look back, but I know it's at least 5 years this January. maybe more. I remember some great diarists that I miss too. There was one younger woman DD...she has a page on Facebook and still is big on eating large portions of vegetables. she actually posts videos and works with other foodies to make videos of healthy eating alternative dishes. she is fun to watch.

museumgirl on 10/21/2014:
hummus recipe looks good, I'll try it. We usually use the tahini, but this looks interesting. I made a beet hummus once - delicous the first couple of bites, but a bit much after that! :)

Felt like I was coming down with something big--I just don't normally get the bugs that go around. Anyway, I took it easy. Got some sleep and I'm feeling much better (if not back to where I was) today. I can't say 100% because I haven't been there in years.

Thanks again MENOPAUSE--YOU SUCK more than anything on earth! (Nope, still haven't made my peace with it!) I will eventually, but to be fair to good ol' "M," I could do more--much more.

I'll put up a FF hummus recipe in the forum soon. I'm not fond of store-bought hummus at all. To me it bears no resemblance whatsoever to hummus at home (whether you add tahini--added fat--or not). And it's rather expensive in those tiny containers.

Not much else to say here. Just wanted to get an entry in. For the next week or two I may go back to a different workout--body weight only. I'm rescheduling the BF check 'til next month.

Exercise:
Wed: Airdyne 10 min (2 intervals of 1:20 min faster :: 1.5 min normal)
Thur: Short Walk

Thur: 6.5 hrs

I totally understand Menopause - Looking forward to seeing your Hummus recipe. Have a great week.


museumgirl on 10/18/2014:
Menopause sucks, but I think it is better on the other side (at least, I THINK I am on the other side). It's like having puberty, but without the energy, killer body, and hope for the future. It sucks. Hang in there. I look forward to the hummus, as well. My husband makes it, but I can never get him to do it.


Destiny65 on 10/20/2014:
Agree to the menopause cr)$&(p! Looking forward to recipe too!

I did well--food was just right with no deviations from the plan. I had more than enough of the hummus I made. It's just too good and too easy for me to overeat.

Not going to mention it--the wt trng workout--haha!

I love homemade hummus! So much better than store bought, isn't it? And you're doing awesome.

Hi, Biscotti. Love hummus also but am content with the commercial varieties.


Destiny65 on 10/16/2014:
I love hummus to but have never made it myself. Must try!
