Ah, Monday. And the start of another week. After a solid week of nit-picking weight gains, I had a drop this morning to 156.75. Nothing earth-shattering, but a definite move in the right direction.

This may be a good sign since I changed my diet around (again) to try to manage this series of problems I have -- diabetes, kidney disease, love of food! It will be interesting to see how my blood sugar behaves today--hopefully it will be good and then life will be good. My protein is in l...

Well, so it's Sunday. I didn't do anything yesterday but mope around. Today, however, I was busy: I basically reclaimed the living room and the dining room and the front entry--moved all the stacked boxes destined for the "someday" yard sale, cleaned Larry's S*** off the dining table, set up his desk in the dining room, gathered all the "gun stuff" and put it in a pile. It's not done, but it's better.

I am going to try to get my exercise/diet back on track, too. That...

Weight = 152.5

(1) a.m.--30 minutes stepmill, FB5, 215 calories. Tired and run down this morning--no oomph. But I'm feeling better now that I'm having something to eat. My ankles are a little swollen (socks are tight) so I'm probably retaining some water. Note to self: drink lots of water today and flush out my system.

Weight this a.m. = 152.75 Extra salt and "digestive health" vegies so probably some water retention.

Exercise Log:

(1) a.m. Cto5K, week 3 (after coffee at 4:15). I got to admit that I don't really like to run all that much, but I'm going to work at this for awhile. It's got some real advantages as far as time and location, and I suspect it's going to be lots more entertaining once I get my endurance to where I can go for 45 minutes or so. (2) p.m. Heavy leg workout for a...

Weight = 152

Exercise Log:
(1) a.m. elliptical--35 min, 355 calories, AHR = 123; MHR = 161. I was late getting up (alarm didn't sound) so I didn't have time for abs.
(2) p.m. abs--front and side plank, hip raise, reverse crunch, Roman chair, machine crunch. I HATE abs and my lack of 6-pack shows it, but I'm going to fix my flabby belly--yech!
(3) p.m. stepmill--25 min, L7 FB, 95 floors, 217 calories. A speedy and efficient workout.

General blog: I'm not feeling real wel...
