Catching up a bit for my journal.

Yesterday was a high octane workout: 30 mins cardio, 60 mins weights (biceps, back, glutes, abs)

My carb rotations have been working as planned. (Imagine that!) After about 225-250 carbs yesterday on my high day, I woke up to very little bloat -- if at all. I'm back to low carb today, and just finished up 45 mins of cardio. FELT WONDERFUL. 15 mins on elliptical, followed by 25 mins of running intervals (45/30), and then another 5 mins on the elliptical. It was cold outside, so warming up first on the elliptical made it a little more bearable. How I've missed running.

My appetite is more suppressed today than it normally is for this hour of the day.

I have to agree with the halftime entertainment. I'm making it my OWN PERSONAL theme song for this week...

"I've gotta feelin...woohooo
That this week's gonna be a good week
That this week's gonna be a good, good week,
....a FEELING...wooooohoooo
That this week's gonna be a good, good week...."




I've gotten all legal snacks ready to watch the game tonight.

Feeling encouraged with MY GAME plan.

I wish I could hit a PAUSE button that would halt the passage of time in the early morning hours when I'm having my coffee, waking up, preparing for my morning _________ workout. It's at this time that I get so ABSORBED -- oh.how.absorbed. -- in reading fitness articles, notes, studies, statistics, etc. There's never enough time during the day to do this, and it's such a wonderful escape for me. It excites me, fascinates me, mesmerizes me, teaches me. I can't seem to get enough.

And then I get the tap on my shoulder from my inner realist that says, "Hey, pssst....do you know what time it is? Get busy."



Whatever. I'd rather pour another cup of coffee and keep reading. It's SO QUIET. So blissful, peaceful. I want to pause this moment of my day and let it last and last and last.

I wanna be able to talk about this stuff I read. I wanna exhange ideas, ask questions, make notes. What is up that I can't let it go? Why am I so hungry for this stuff?

So I carry on conversations with myself mostly.

All right. I'm hearing that voice again. It's time to start my second Callanetics session for the week. It always makes me walk taller, reach easier, feel more graceful, sleek. It WORKS ME. It deserves this time.

So off I go...I will have to read and rest and "pause" when the next day dawns.

Twila,

Don't know if you popped back into the "My secret weapon" thread, so I'll add my answer here:

I think it has something to do with the taste buds in your mouth. You want sweet, so you eat salty/sour.

I like olives because they add a little fat as well.

Yes, Elizabeth, I had seen your post. I plan to try that strategy, because I love both feta and kalamata olives too.

That's whetted my appetite. I plan to make a HUGE salad, mostly spinach, with red onions, olives, feta, fresh basil, red wine vinegar and olive oil, with a touch of Splenda.

Hugs and kisses to all of you, sweet friends. I return the love unconditionally! Hope your Valentine's Day (weekend) was spent enjoyably.

My weekend was a bit stressful, unfortunately. My hard drive began a nose dive to death on Saturday, late morning...

Quote:
"....It being a Saturday, I struggled to find a computer repair place/dealer that was open. I got Lucky around 3:30. "Mike" answered the phone. He sounded techy. Smart. Serious. BUT HELPFUL. Yay. Mike's my man. He warned me that it was a rush job, a weekend, and I'd be paying $120 per hour. I told him I had no choice. I had to SAVE two files off the hard drive before it took its last breath BEFORE MONDAY. I needed these for court. The two important files I had NOT backed up (which I usually do daily).

Mike looked like I expected he would. Those computer geeks all have "that look." It was comforting to me to see "that look." Reassuring. God bless Computer Geeks. He was able to retrieve those files via "surgery," and said he'd try to retrieve the remaining files on Monday. He said placing a hard drive that wasn't quite dead in the freezer sometimes helps to revive the "brains" a bit. No assurances. There are files on there that I have NOT backed up in a while and would love to have saved.

Luckily, all of my photos, music, and work-related files had been archived to my external hard drive.

I'm now struggling along, learning a new laptop....we've exchanged courtesies, made surface introductions, but we're not quite friends. Not yet. It has an annoying habit that I need to figure out how to axe. It keeps popping little suggestions and cr(a)p intomy business. Little pop up bubbles.. do you wanna do this? Or this? How about trying this? Or this? Hell, NO!!!! I'll let YOU know if I need your help. Go away!

I must be patient. It means well. I'll figure it out. We will be friends. We'll eventually become intimate. We'll learn each other eventually. We must.

This is stressful. It makes me want chocolate. Lots of chocolate.

NOOOOOOO, T.

Big breath....fingers crossed till I hear back from Mike the Computer Wizard on Monday.

And then I'll need to make funeral arrangements....my beloved friend and companion has served me well..."

So. I did NOT overdose on chocolate, as it turns out. I hung on for dear life and tried to keep everything in perspective. My husband and I ended up spending most of the weekend doing things for our sons, meeting their needs, TCB, etc., and we woke up Monday morning thinking: Hm. Did we just have a weekend? No down/rest time for either of us. But that's what parents do. So I juggled kids stuff with the stress of worrying about saving a few files from my terminal hard drive (fingers still crossed) and learning the ins and outs of my new laptop.

I lost my cool a few times on Sunday. It's a very nosey PC. It wants to suggest crap all the time, intermittent little pop up messages. ANNOYING. I don't want it to suggest anything. I know what I want, and I felt myself screaming, "Hell, NO! I don't want ______, how about I call YOU!" I was against the clock, trying to draft a letter that Son#2 needed, complete with bells/whistles, all relevant points addressed, etc. Just STUFF all.day.long.

Death of a laptop.... I remember sitting in the retail section of the computer place on Saturday, waiting for him to emerge from his office/repair cave ... it felt like sitting in a hospital waiting room, fearing the doctor coming out any minute to announce, "I'm sorry...we tried...there's nothing we can do."

As of yesterday late afternoon, I get word from "Mike" that there is still hope. (What does that mean?)

Ugh.

On a more positive note: I did NOT indulge in crap and sugar and comfort food throughout that storm. I got in cardio on the weekend, and even went for a run (oh.yes.it.was.fabulous.) Sunday afternoon. Yesterday was gym day, cardio, LB, back, abs. My tracking yesterday was spot on.

I'm hopeful that my hard drive can hang on long enough to save a FEW files I need/want, one being my FitdayPC file. I hadn't backed it up since July, and I've added a lot of data since then --- records, custom food, diary entries, etc. Not a huge loss, but meaningful nonetheless.

I'm going for a run this morning. It's mild this week. I'm gonna milk this baby for all it's worth, because cold air is supposed to return next week.

Another sip of coffee....and I'm on my way....

Hello, Meek. I've missed YOU. You weren't around for a while, and it's great to see you back at it. I've glanced (*) at your journal and saw that you were doing Weight Watchers and really liking it. GOOD FOR YOU. Keep at it. If this is YOUR fit, go for it and don't look back.

I have to admit, for the last several days I've been very busy AND preoccupied with putting out "fires" of one sort or another in my life, and I've had zero time to post, visit, etc.

Once my dust settles, I'll hopefully not be such a stranger.

Again...great to have you back on the boards with us.

TOTALS for Monday:

cals......1608
prot........171 43%
carbs........65 14%
fiber.........20
fat...........80 44%

Cardio (32 mins running a.m.)
(Noticeable DOMS in lats and in hamstring/inner thigh from Monday)

I'm hoping to get up and running and return to normal with my computer issues by the end of the week. I've had to download drivers, patches, install this, that, the other; I've been on the phone with Tech Support three times (long calls) with Windows 7 compatibility issues for my court reporting realtime software, googled how-to's for this and that, and have been trying to beat the clock to get a long transcript finished before next week. Go, go, go, go, go, go, go....Keep running, T. The end is in sight.

Side note: I don't like where my DELETE key is on my new laptop. Some things matter. Position matters.

Good news is: Mike the Wizard called yesterday and announced he was able to save my documents from my dying hard drive. I'll stop by his place this morning; holding my breath till then.

Zach returns from Germany today.

Time to begin my Callanetics.

"Went through an entire bottle of red wine..."


I've definitely considered it.
More than once.


If there is ever an excuse to drink alcohol, it's when your hard drive is dying and/or you're troubleshooting new hardware/software on a new laptop.

Yep, me too. That DELETE key is outta reach why? Maybe that's intentional. Makes it more difficult to delete stuff? Who knows...

Lay in bed and post? Hmmmm. Now that sounds cozy.

Here I go again, scrambling to catch up. WHAT.A.WEEK.

Yesterday was a low carb day in rotations, and I was also trying to keep it at 1600 cals or under. Didn't happen. Hungries (true hunger) hit late afternoon/evening and I tried to appease it, but just kept grazing. As it turns out, my cals were almost at maintenance levels, but my guess is I was probably either in a slight deficit regardless, or broke even. I've learned not to FEAR hunger, not to allow it to DEFEAT me. I know why it happens now. (Thank you, Btinc) And I know how to either go with it, but "responsibly," or if necessary, fight it, depending on what's going on in my rotations, workouts and such. I went to bed slightly annoyed that it didn't go my way, but today was back to normal, so it works out.

Yesterday was 45 mins of Callanetics and 12 mins of cardio. Had to pick up my son at the airport, so it was a busy evening.

Today was supposed to be a medium day in rotations, but I've only had 75 carbs, so I didn't plan well. I guess I could throw in another 25 before bed, but I'm not sure if that would serve a purpose.

Today was gym day. I normally begin my workouts at the gym with 10 mins of cardio on the elliptical, but when I got home from the office, it was 70 degrees, and I was dying to run. So I went for a 20 min run. You're not supposed to do cardio before you lift, esp higher intensity, but when it's 70 degrees out in February, you're allowed to "break the rules." Sweating and uplifted, I then drove to the gym, did 50 mins of weights (delts, inner thighs and abs) and was gonna come home to finish my ss cardio (too beautiful out to do cardio in a stuffy gym), but my calves and feet were beginning to cramp from dehydration -- even though I'd gone through 40 oz of water at the gym -- so I thought I'd wait and maybe do 15-20 mins walk this evening. It's still nice out. Such a tease.

It's been a good week for me overall fitness goals wise, despite the hurdles and annoyances of working through my hard drive crash and trying to get a big transcript out on a new computer that I'm not familiar with (driver issues, etc.) Incredibly busy this week. I'm wanting the dust to settle. Afterall, tomorrow is Friday, and it's CHILL DAY. I plan to take full advantage of that opportunity. Bring on the red.

TOTALS TODAY:

CALS.....1406 (Huge deficit!)
PROT......169
CARBS......73
FIBER.......19
FAT...........53

TOTALS YESTERDAY:

Around 1900 ish cals
190ish protein
70 carbs

(My plan for nutrition didn't agree with my body's plan, but I'm good. It works out.)

T, popping in to tell you that your suggestion to track every bite of eats has been such a great tool for me! It really puts it out there in black and white and I LOVE having the data at my disposal.

Have a great weekend!

Perfect! It really does make a difference in our progress. The black and white adds integrity to our efforts, doesn't it?

Hope you have a great weekend too.

Well, it's Friday. Weigh day. I'm back to where I was TWO Fridays ago, since last Friday was a wash with it being TOM-Time. It always sets me back at least a week in losses.

I ended up having 1.75 ounces of fat-free cottage cheese, 1 Tbs of Fiber One, and 2 oz of blueberries last night before bed, with decaf tea. I figured I could use the bit of protein, casein being better at that hour, and the blueberries/F.O. upped my carb totals slightly. I'll go back to low carbs today, around 50-60, and then do a high day on Saturday, but keep them around 200-225.

Thurs and Fridays are my sleep-an-extra-hour days, so I either do 15 mins of cardio or Callan, or depending on how I feel, I'll take a rest day. I may rest it out this morning. Yesterday's w/o at the gym was rather intense, and with cals low, I am trying to keep my hormones happy. I'll try to keep cals today around 1500 or below.

I have Monday off, but I'll be working on transcripts at home some of that time. I looked ahead at the weather, and although it's cooler next week, it's not unbearable temps they're predicting. So still good for running. I remember last spring enjoying my morning runs and power walks as the sun came up over the lake by the golf course near my house, taking pics, getting high off the promise of a new day, spring weather, and the happiness that came from my inner soul. I wanna be there again. I want to "go to that place." I want to identify once more with that euphoria. I wanna taste it. Own it. Keep it.

More coffee, please...A new day dawns.

Yes. Sans. I know. It's almost too good to be true. But I'll enjoy and take advantage of this weather for as long as it lasts. Sunshine. Glorious, warm sunshine! Finally!

----------------------

Today is my high carb day. I've been to the gym and had a really great workout. Lots of triceps work, glutes, and abs. Also got in 36mins of cardio. The lifting took about an hour. Felt totally spent when I left.

Came home, prepared a blueberry protein milkshake, and had that with rice cakes. Then after about 25 mins, had some protein oatmeal pancakes . It's after 1:00 pm, and I burned quite a bit of cals at the gym, and I'm now stuffed. I made myself eat that last bite of pancakes -- probably shouldn't have. I'm up to 113 carbs, 20 g fat, and under 1000 cals. I doubt I'll make it to maintenance level cals today. Just am not hungry. High carb days do this to me. Very satiating, filling. So I'll just eat intuitively and try to get in my 200ish or so carbs for the day.

What a great workout. I had given up walking lunges for a while back when I hurt my knee. I haven't done them for several months. The last time I tried (August?), it was SO PAINFUL. I did them today with a barbell, and NO PAIN!!! Four sets!

Lovin this.

I have the day to myself. My family is away, and it's just me till later this afternoon. How I love me time.
