Thanks kitkat! Congratulations on your classes!
That's a good point, yes, Smile Lee. I tend to be black and white with my exercise. It's hard for me to do something shorter -- but that would be good for me!
It's hard to keep on an eating plan when visiting with family, etc. KimmyAnn.
How is your back after all the bending and lifting, edium?
We had a dusting of snow on the ground again this morning, Gma. I'm getting really tired of it. I don't think I could live in MN. WTG with your desk! Are you getting to walk with other people/in other ways?

I did a 4 mile jog today immediately after work which meant I was pretty tired at the beginning of the jog. It was the only way to fit it in this afternoon though.

Rough exercise plan this week:
T - jog 4 miles flat
W - jog the arb hill x1; 2.5 miles
Th - ?? It will be very windy here. Maybe go to the gym? Or just skip?
Sun. - Jog while at my parents' home in IL, 4 miles. Flat. LOL! If you know central Illinois, you'll understand -- no need to specify "flat." :)

not getting in much walking atm. my walking partner is in Europe for 2 weeks, and I have been sedentary trying to sort through just SOME of my house. I ahve focused on my house for several days - to the neglect of what Mother wants done at her house. So tomorrow I will dedicate several hrs to her.

I did jog the hill yesterday. I'm going to skip today, even though that will mean no exercise for 2 or 3 days. I don't know whether I can jog at my parents on Saturday or Sunday. It will depend on the weather. I need to use my non-payroll time today to work around the house to prep for guests tonight. We will have a full table at our weekly Thursday dinner party this week. I'm setting the table for 9!

O Th - ?? It will be very windy here. Maybe go to the gym? Or just skip?

Hey, yes, I am alive ! :lol:

Kit, yes Ddog is adorable. Personality is not what I am used to, but he is not my dog. He just lives in my house. :wink:
I think working out at home for a bit sounds fine ! :mrgreen:

Gma, driving can be a workout all by itself ! Not so great on toning some muscles though.... :roll: I am sure you will make up for it in no time !

Helian, my back was fine after the books, but finishing the edging around the azalea beds Friday nearly did it in. :lol: Had help from a young man with a bad back. So while he dug, tamped and stacked, I loaded my hand cart hauled and unloaded the recycled landscape blocks. It looks great and my back is better ( after babying it ) for the work out !

Hey Kimmy and Feather and jehanne and .... my memory needs more work too ! :oops:

Meanwhile my step count is continuing to either hold or improve at least 6 days a week. And so does other movement. I now have quite the course laid out in my house for rainy weather days . I may have to figure out several changes in case it starts wearing in the old wood floors ! :oops: :mrgreen:

Howdy everyone! New plan for this week. My power plate sessions got changed from 3 to 2 days because I don't want to go in the afternoon. I'm using the new schedule to change up my routine, maybe even work in some classes. Instead of doing weights and power plate on same day, I'm going do alternate days, which will work in more power plate in using it for a warm up and cool down on the weights days, and more treadmill time.
For future summer activity -- There's a park with a pretty long walk/jog path on my route to the gym. Looking forward to doing a quick run/walk on that and getting itchy to get out on the bike trail.

Gma, you've been busy! Shoveling is good exercise, but just be careful!
Park sounds great, Smile Lee. I hope the new schedule works for you!
Glad your back is better, edium.
WTG with your classes, kitkat. I hope you're done with snow and ice.

I have a low-key work schedule for the next month, and then I'm taking June off b/c of travels! Yay! This means I can get back into an exercise routine. I might even start adding in some barre classes, especially some yoga.

Plan for this week:
X T - PT for my shoulder; it got a good work out
W - walk with dfriend; jog - not too long since I won't have much time late in the afternoon
Th - longer jog, 4 miles?
Sa. - jog longer, 5 or 6 miles

Shoulder PT exercises: 1 or 2 times
Back Exercises: try for 2 times this week

Hi everybody! Boy, did I go AWOL for a minute!

I have kept up with calorie counting. Yay me! I have been keeping to a planned intake pretty consistently for about 2 weeks. I haven't seen reliable wt drop yet, but I think I will.

KitKat, yes, I'm sure there was another member expecting at the same time. I just don't remember who that was at the moment.
Helian, are you planning to get back in routine this month?
Gma, did you say you have been dating? How is that going?
Lee, I don't remember my "red dress". Maybe that wasn't me, but maybe it was!
Kitkat, wtg on more movement!


As for me, I've been in a bit of emotional upheaval for a few days now. I've been self-obsessed and seeing signs of midlife crisis, like fantasies of having an affair, obsession with a movie star, and a strong desire to drink alcohol (which I can't do now, due to a medication I'm taking) Sorry if this is an overshare. I'm a Christian, happily married, and in no way want to put my marriage, family, or health at risk with any of the above temptations, but I've been driven to fantasize about them. This was all triggered by watching a movie with a very compelling male supporting actor, but I also had a touch of it around Mid-feb, and I had some significant but short-lived depression the last week of March as well. The medication can cause depression, so I'm watching that. I probably would benefit from more work outside in the garden. BUT enough about that. I have to work on turning my perspective toward being of service to others. That's the key to peace of mind, not dreaming about a more exciting, more passionate, more interesting life.

Tuesday

Track food in calorie app 5-7 days per week.
yes.I've undereaten the past 2 days due to decreased appetite, as a result of the emotional upheaval. This is not normal for me, I'm a stress eater, so usually it's the opposite. I' will want to watch this as well, since I could easily end up having rebound binging.

Light but filling dinners (lots of veggies), followed by a planned dessert and then no more food. Yes. This has been easy lately.

I ate really healthy yesterday, and pretty good today too.
Not getting enough steps in, but may be able to change that - if can let go of/ FINISH! some housekeeping that I am trying to focus on!

Went to a party at former work place today - saw a nurse who was having significant health issues when I left 2 yrs ago. She - on her own, without support from her dr's (Mayo Clinic no less), bout the book Eat to Live and has been following mostly a plant based diet for over a year. And she looks so much better than EVER! ++++SHE IS HEALTHY! ++++ I will be checking B&N for that book and see if htey have it or can get it.

and yes, I am dating, and it is going VERY WELL!
