For my activity: Walk 20 min

My food choices have been a disaster lately--it hasn't been about overeating, but lots of calories--completely unsustainable at my activity level. You can tell (or not--the scale can--haha) from the last several weeks I've focused ONLY on activity. Now that I'm at a good level and have proven to myself (my head/psyche) that I can make progress there and I'm comfortable with the slow rate, it's time to focus again on food choices.

"Eat Reasonably Well" hasn't practically meant "run amok," but when I don't focus, things go south pretty quickly.

I just didn't want to micromanage two things at once and doing it that way I think has paid off surprisingly well. Now I can (I hope) push myself in the right direction on the food front. This should all be so very satisfying and fruitful in the weeks and months to come. Should. The bane of my existence--haha!

Enjoy your week!

I too have been only focusing on activity... We CAN get our eating under control!!!


Umpqua on 08/15/2011:
Good luck with managing your food. I know I really have to micromanage my eating or it can quickly get out of control. I'm sure you'll come with a good system!


liza36 on 08/15/2011:
I know you can manage the food part! It is hard to focus on both at the same time, at least it is for me. Good luck!


moogy on 08/15/2011:
I tend to go south very quickly as well, one bad day and that's it, the slide is quick and delicious!!! I think you have done so well with understanding how much exercise you can do and how hard you can push. Now onto the food!!!!:)

Got a little rain--about an inch. Kind of a nice surprise that it rained all night! Just have to deal with the mugginess for a few days. I had almost forgotten what humidity plus heat was like:-)

It was nice and cool (somewhat muggy) in the mid-70sF when I went for my jog/walk earlier--very few people were out and about. The others must have all been indoors listening to Governor GoodHair announce for president of the US (nickname coined by the late, great Molly Ivins for Gov Rick Perry).

He's also (in)famous for a traffic stop during which he said to the officer, "Why don't you just let us get on down the road." And another mic-check thingy where he says, "Adios MoFo!" Both are on video. I'm sure as the neverending campaign that is our Presidential race goes on, he'll do/say more jack*ssalicious stuff.

Yep, he's THAT jerk. You know the one--pretty much like most politicians--smarmy to the hilt. They don't all start out that way, but they end up that way. He's trying to get us to believe a hard-luck story that he had no zip code (postal code) when he was a child. How stupid--if he didn't, it was because no one did--dumb*ss. Oh well, consider yourself forewarned:-)

greengirl on 08/13/2011:
Thanks for your support Biscotti, you are exactly right Mancunion or Manc is a person born in Manchester. We have some weird and wonderful names like that! For example I was born in a small Manchester suburd called Audenshaw and a person from Audenshaw is proud to be called an Aldwinian. Doesn't really make sense does it ?? Everything has quietened down now and the authorities have come down hard and quick on any looters they have taken into custody but I feel it is an uneasy peace at best and fear that things could boil over again soon. I sometimes wish I didn't work in the centre of town but most of the time it's a wonderful place, very vibrant!

Keep up the good work with the jogging :-)

No rain here, though it was cooler. But that "chill" came at the price of humidity. We have slight chances of rain for a couple days, but then it'll be back to over 100*F 'til . . .

One of my pet subjects :: sleep apnea (*YAWN* hahaha):
There was quite the watershed study released today re: elderly women, sleep apnea and dementia. I'm hoping that this is widely disseminated--should be since it was published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association). (There aren't many sleep apnea studies that have examined just women.) I hope that it leads to a widespread practice of screening for sleep apnea. Here's the link:
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/news/fullstory_115189.html

Excerpts:
Since sleep-disordered breathing affects up to 60 percent of the elderly, any association between sleep apnea and cognitive impairment -- even a modest one -- could have a major public health impact, the researchers noted.

Redline said that anyone with symptoms of sleep apnea -- loud snoring, long pauses in breathing, feeling unrefreshed in the morning despite a full night's sleep -- should bring these symptoms to his or her doctor's attention and discuss treatment options.

Of course the health risks of untreated sleep apnea can be fairly devastating and there are other treatments besides CPAP especially if one has a very mild case. You don't necessarily have to be overweight/obese or tired during the day (I wasn't tired at all during the day). Here again is a great editorial, Brain Death by A Thousand Hypoxic Cuts in Sleep: http://ajrccm.atsjournals.org/cgi/content/full/175/6/528

Interesting article.


Umpqua on 08/12/2011:
I hope you'll finally get some rain down there. Have a nice weekend!


thinkpositive on 08/12/2011:
Since I've been having sleep problems I will read the articles. I don't think that I have sleep apnea or that I'm a candidate for dementia ( my mother is 91 & very sharp & my father died just before he turned 91 & sharp to the end). But who knows, it's better to be aware than to ignore information. So thanks for posting.


Soon2BThin on 08/12/2011:
Thanks for the article. I don't think I have sleep apnea. I just have a hard time getting to sleep at night, really hard! And I only wake up when I need to use the restroom, which, lately, is about 4 times a night. All that water I'm drinking. But at least, I'm getting it through me and not retaining it. After I get up, I usually get right back to sleep, thank goodness. Have a good weekend!


greengirl on 08/12/2011:
Hey biscotti, I have been looking at electronic journals all day at work and , blow me if you are not posting links to articles when I come on here!! We take JAMA electronically and in hard copy for our med students. It's really funny seeing academic links on here!!


sweetpea1977 on 08/12/2011:
Thank you for sharing your experiences with me. Its comforting knowing that Im not the only who has gone through this! I have an annual check-up at the end of this month, so I'll definitely be bringing this issue up!


moogy on 08/12/2011:
Thank you for the encouragement and yes, I am back at it this morning. I am so glad you are receiving treatment for your sleep apnea. Love the 8 hours Biscuit Woman, that's wonderful. Super heroine stuff indeed! Have a wonderful and healthy weekend biscotti:)

For my activity: Walk 15 min; Jog 1 min/Walk 3 min x 7

Didn't happen to get in my bike ride yesterday. The good news on the jogging is that I sought out and jogged up a hill, then jogged up another because that's the way jogging in the street goes. I'm gettin' there at a snail's pace!

The rest of this is pretty boring--I don't recommend reading any of it:
My sleeping night was a perfect joke. I can't eat certain things close to bedtime anymore. Period. (Though I keep testing it--last night it was not on purpose.) Promises don't work--only making myself eat out of a certain box of choices after a certain hour. My day is completely off kilter. Foolish. But I can only forgive myself, stick to the plan that works tonight and move on. I have no clue if I'll be able to get through wt trng later--I shall try!

It's probably time to write down my food again and then to count calories. I should have been writing my food down all this time, but even when you know something fosters mindfulness (and keeps your choices somewhat sane and honest), sometimes you think it'll be okay to skip a day. And then you've skipped it for months. I think the last time I religiously wrote down my food was this past January. It's always (since I've posted here on DDs) been one of those things that furthers my cause.

I tried a RedBull (artificial sweetener version), and it tasted like Fizzies and the aftertaste lasted waaay too long--I drank about 3 sips. Now I know, but I could have done without it.

I think everone could manage with Red Bull or any of those other caffeine charged drinks. Sorry you had such a rough night, another lesson learned. Yes, it is a nuisance, but true, writing down and counting does work. I have felt much more in control since I started doing it again. I hope that you recover from your foolishness today and get a reasonable night's sleep tonight:)


Umpqua on 08/10/2011:
I don't like the taste of Red Bull either. I do like Sobe Lifewater for a nice zero calorie change from regular water. It's sweetened with stevia and erythritol. No caffeine but they have flavors with B12, ginseng, etc. Hope you get a good night's sleep in!


V on 08/10/2011:
I am not a fan of Red Bull either :( It is such a weird taste with a slight hint of CAN...LOl I can't fully dis it because in a pinch, I will settle for it if and only if it is the last option...Have you ever tried Monster absolute Zero??? Yummy but I usually cut off my caffeine intake by 4 pm(imagine that... me?) LOL I really appreciate the extra sleep that I get now...I wake up Ready!!.. I hope you get a good night sleep my friend..I also still hope the rain will find itself your way :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/10/2011:
i know what you mean about eating certain foods at bedtime! gosh, i'm only 28 and my body has finally seeked revenge. i finally have digestive problems at work when i take too many chances, too much dairy, too much anything. i'm not lactose intolerant, yet. but, wow, no more eating whatever i want either. and forget about having a bowl of 2 cups fiber one and milk for breakfast = bloating and gas all day long at work. grrr.


thinkpositive on 08/11/2011:
Thanks for the sleep advice. I'm not ready to cut coffee out- but will try cutting down first & then may go 1/2 decaf. I hear you on the importance of writing down calories- when i don't there is no progress.


liza36 on 08/11/2011:
You are too funny - you are NOT boring and I love your posts. Great job on the jogging, and I guess you've learned about mindful eating. I typically write down my foods every day (it's part of the weight watcher's plan), but if I skip a day or two, I forget about the whole week. If I'm traveling and don't have control over what I may be eating, I don't write things down. I guess that is when I need it the most. Live and learn I suppose.


greengirl on 08/11/2011:
Keep up the good work with the jogging biscotti :-) I too have a problem if I eat at night which seems to be worse as I get older !! It's crap getting older !!


V on 08/11/2011:
Celsius and the Monster absolute zero is Aspartame free...There are alot of Celsius flavors that are gross..LOl I like the Ginger Ale, Orange and cola flavor...I usually don't drink the Celsius after my am workouts... I am sure if i wasn't such an adrenaline junky/overthinker And i would sleep a hell alot better if I laid off the Monsters as well...LOL

Oh and BTW I have been watching "The weather channel" In hopes of seeing some relief from your drought :(


kimbobeaner on 08/11/2011:
Thanks for the welcome! Never tried a red bull either...maybe I will keep it that way! I am afraid to get energy from a drink...I might get palpitations or something, knowing me :P I also have to be careful what I eat, and when I eat in the evening...my stomach is always on fire with heartburn if I eat much after 7pm... so I guess I shouldn't do that!!

geevee on 08/09/2011:
Shingles vaccine update - I saw my doctor this morning and asked him about the vaccine. Immediately he said "no" because I'm taking methotrexate, an immuno-suppresant.Because it's a live vaccine, it could cause big problems.

The subject is not closed because the blood test showed that my platelet count was low again. He told me to stop taking the methotrexate and to come in for more blood work to see if doing that will raise the platelet level for the next 2 wks.

So if he takes me off this drug permanently, then I'll bring up the vaccine again.

I'm glad I didn't go ahead and get the vaccine when he was on vacation. I had a feeling about this drug and how it might interfere with the vaccine.

More to come!

Soon2BThin on 08/09/2011:
Thanks for your comments and concerns. I know this is almost starvation but it's only temporary and you don't gain the weight back if you follow the program correctly. The HCG re-regulates your hypothalamus so eventually you can eat more and still not gain weight. I've researched it very well. I do feel better today and not taking the Lasix. I only took it for 3 days, also some potassium (my doctor told me to) and my legs and ankles and feet are normal today. I think it's the fact that I'm not eating the junk food and salt. So maybe this diet will take care of the swelling. Hey, I'm not mad if you feel that way. After all, we've been here forever, right?


V on 08/09/2011:

For my activity: Walk 10 min

I finished my jog earlier today--a little hot, but I'm pretty used to it--it was probably about 86*F. (I don't get out to do sustained activity after about 90--the exception would be in the evening when the sun is low or already setting.) Today there was a little breeze for a change. (It got to 115*F in the shade yesterday.) It was still way over 100*F today.

I'd just like to encourage anyone (ANYONE) in any shape to physically find some way to challenge yourself. You can't do it all in the beginning, but you can start where you are and find something to get your heart rate up, get your frustrations out, get stronger or sweat--or all four! Start small and build up. I'll vouch for how slow the process can be, but if you don't do something now, you'll probably be doing nothing a year from now. Use your imagination to see how good you can possibly feel even after just one short workout.

Again, I recommend recording your progress and/or goals in a little notebook--you could even do it on your phone--I think the main thing is that it's there and you know it's accessible. (For me there's just something about recording my progress.) You may not ever look to see where you were, but it'll be there if you decide you want to look back. I still have my old little running notebook when I did this back in 2002--this time is quite different. I'm feeling a different set of challenges, but with every step my confidence builds and I like to remind myself of where I've been.

I know it may be boring to focus on that at least once/week here in my diary, but that's the way it is--everything changes:-)

Yes, sometimes it is only the simple repitition of little but healthfull things that keep us going sometimes. I have found that since counting my calories and doing exercise I have been able to rise above the difficulties that swirl around me. Like taking back a little of control. I hope you get more sleep over the weekend:)

Go for it Biscotti, good to have two irons in the fire and variety is the spice of life. Our water's just come back on after 6 hours or so but it certainly buggered up my routine for the day and put me in a foul mood. I don't suffer fools gladly and I had to talk to some mumbling buffoon when I telephone the water company. I'm afraid I was a bit of a bitch with him but his customer service skills were sadly lacking! It's all good now so back to normal tomorrow :-)

Yes, it was lucky 13, I stuck with it and ended the day way under calories. All together "Go away nasty cough", that should do it:)
