    Where do I concentrate? Lose wt or AF?

    Enjoying a Smoothie after hitting FC for a short (2 mile) run/walk. This is Week 2 of training program where I am supposed to be running 2, walk 2, but body told me this week upping from 1 min to 1:30 was good enough. Today I did try one 2 min segment running and lungs/legs handled it so next week will do the 2 min. It's still progress.

    Playing golf this afternoon with dh. More exercise. Handicap keeps dipping, and I don't feel I really am in that category. Stayed at 25 forever, then went to 24, 2 weeks later 23, now 22. Yikes!

    Where do I concentrate? Lose wt or AF?

    First Friday night AF in quite some time. First night I slept pretty well, last night not so much. I remember when 1 Benadryl would put me out pronto. 2 Benadryl, 2 Ibuprofen, finally 25 mg of Trazadone at 3:30a got me to sleep. Too bad today is an early tee time.

    Note to self: Buy some Tylenol PM and take early in evening.

    Know I'm talking to myself here but want to document the days.

    Benefits of AF so far:

    Coffee tastes good
    No dull headache
    Even w/o much sleep face looks less lined
    Eyes are already brighter

    Shot a 93 yesterday. Very pleased with that. Got 16.8K steps in.

    TMH, you are not talking to yourself. I'm here. I just haven't posted on this thread recently, as I am not making grand progress other than my training. I think we are doing 6 miles today... not so much. And, since I've been AF the last two weeks, I've been allowing myself ice cream in the evenings. That should probably change sometime soon.

    I certainly do empathize with the poor sleep even when AF. It just doesn't seem fair, does it? However, the night before last I slept for probably 9 hours, so I guess it evens out.

    Blue mood these days. Today is supposed to be almost spring-like, so I am hoping that will brighten up the inner weather as well as the outer.

    Ah, so good to "see" you NNG. Are we alike or what! Think part of my problem last night was the ice cream sundae dh made me. I know I shouldn't have sugar in the evening but.....it was really good! If not for that, I think weight would have dropped a bit.

    You know I read somewhere on here that we should take our sleep whenever we can get it. I've decided to not be so afraid of napping. Glad you got that one good night's sleep! And good job on the 2 AF weeks! What are your benefits?

    Ok, have to run.

    So, yesterday's walk was a good one and we did a few more miles than we had planned. I went at my sister-in-law's pace which is considerable slower than my own, and we enjoyed it very much. Going at a different pace one uses different muscles, so it is good to mix it up.

    TMH, thanks for the encouragement. You and I will do this weight thing together. As are as the benefits from my AF time, I truly enjoy the middle of the night feeling when I can say to myself, "Well, at least my not sleeping tonight isn't from over-doing!" I know that with time I'll have more energy and more creative juices flowing. And holy Hannah, is my knitting ever going to town!

    Hey everybody!!!!! You all are doing great!!!!!:happy:

    I did some research and found that the beta-blocker I'm on for high blood pressure.... that I've been on for years depletes your body of melatonin. I've been sleeping a little better since I added the melatonin. I take one 3mg tablet at night. They say you have to get a build up in your system.

    NNG, I now have some further motivation to lose some of this weight. Going back to MN for a visit mid June. You do use different muscles at different paces. When I used to run marathons, I would do a 15 mile walk with a friend for March of Dimes, and would get so sore. Thanks for sharing AF benefits. Keep them coming as you experience them.

    -143 glad the melatonin is working for you. I have some, but I need more immediate relief. Think I am going to go pick up that new Nyquil for sleep. Have to see if alcohol is an ingredient, however.

    Good golf game on Fri; Sat. golf was horrible. Got paired with a lady who talked way too much. Took a nap when I got home, then hit the grocery store with all the other "leave it to the last minute" shoppers. Driving home I was fighting the tears. I felt so blame tired. Got up at 4:30a Sunday, attended Sunrise service outdoors. It was nice. Got home and got back into pj's and slept until 11:30a. Felt human again.

    I did have some wine at Easter gathering. It was just a pleasant, sit out on friends' huge lanai late afternoon watching the golfers. Hosts gather us "orphans" and we all contribute. I am glad I got 3 AF days in last week. Back to it today.

    Just used ET and did 2.5 miles running the full 2 min., then walking 2, run 2, etc. Actually felt good.
    100 sit ups and stretch.

    Well, I'm having weight problems again...for the record, my weight problems are what most people dream of, it's more in my head. I look the same, my clothes fit fine, I am 8-10 pounds heavier than I'd like. Since the rib injury in Austria, it's been hard to work out or run. Every time I run, my ribs hurt. I have played some hockey games, but don't feel 100%. If I can, I think I am going to sneak out and run in the Park and see how it goes. My pace is just awful!

    I haven't been eating terrible, but not great either, usually when that happens I pick up the miles or make a point of it to get out there and run, but lately it's been painstaking.

    Welcome, Jane! I agree with you about delaying eating as long as possible. Even w/o practicing F-5 I often go until noon or 1:00 before I eat.

    Haven't been to FC since Monday. Yesterday made a Costco run after Bible Study. Had vm when I got home that I could get squeezed in for a hair foil so rushed out door to get there. By the time I got home from that it was almost time to go to Pairings Party. Yes, another golf tournament starting today. This is a 3 day one. Will have time to do my run/walk as we don't tee off til 12:30. 18 holes later means everyone pouring into the 19th Watering Hole discussing the results.

    After Tournament and Weekend Musings: do not go to 19th hole. Go home after golf, be AF, and you will play much better next day.

    Sunday: had afternoon movie/dinner date. Saw Heaven is for Real. Great movie! Early dinner included a couple glasses of wine. As we leisurely sipped, delayed ordering dinner and discussing the movie, I thought how do I turn around my thinking that doing same AF would be just as enjoyable? I know I need to get to that mindset.
