    Where do I concentrate? Lose wt or AF?

    Great start to the week workout wise. Chest and triceps, then ran/walked 3 miles upping running time to 3 min, then walk for 2. Felt strong. Yay!

    Now make it a great start to the week by not drinking today.

    Worked out in fasted state. ET and Run/walk. Read in sun for about 1/2 hr. Having a smoothie and some fresh fruit and yogurt.

    Last night I procrastinated about being AF knowing today was start of new month. Had a drink. Dh went to make another one, and I just filled mine with more ICE. Drank water with dinner. I did buy Nyquil for sleep (generic Walgreen's version), took 2 as directed. Had intermittent sleep but woke up feeling pretty darn good.

    Weekend was just golf for exercise. Yest was a picturesque day, not a cloud in the sky. Shot a 91, very pleased.

    Today I worked legs on machines, ET for 20 min, ran/walked 40 min or 3 miles, planks, 120 situps, and lots of stretching. Enjoyed 30 min of sun time.

    Been not paying much attention to my pedometer and decided I need to as in the past I learned that I needed to get 14K steps/day to maintain. Recently, I have not even gotten that so between being AF during week and now paying attention, am going to strive for at least 14K/day this week. This will mean turning going across street to get mail into a 15 min walk, maybe more than once/day. When I worked I usually walked 1 mi. on a.m. break, 2 miles on lunch break, 1 mi. in afternoon and then numerous times 1-2 miles after work. I weighed 112 albeit on F-5 at time.

    Changes: AF Mon-Thurs
    Pay attention to Daily Step Count, increase as needed

    Where do I concentrate? Lose wt or AF?

    Hi there I need to lose four stone and would like to do this in next twelve months.
    Plan is to stick to 1500 cals and exercise three times a week at gym,I play roller derby twice a week but this isn't constant movement quite a few drills,footwork skills and talking strategy.

    I need to increase strength and cardio fitness to help me be best I can be at sport.
    My weight is causing me more unhappiness and health damage potentially than amount I was drinking. Focusing on one goal is way to go for me,max of four drinks per week for me.

    Hiya, Bear! As I have said elsewhere, I am in total admiration for your roller derby gig. WOW! That being said, I understand the weight issue... (except I have to ask, a stone is 12 pounds in American, right? I can never get that straight!) Yes, I understand the weight issue. When I started training for my first marathon, I was 212 pounds. By my second marathon six months later, I was 155. Exercise does work! Now, you need to know that I did those two marathons SLOWLY... I walk/run. But the constant adding up the slow miles did the trick for me. This all was four years ago, and I have gotten a bit lazy and added back a few (20 to be exact), but I know how to get them back off. We are in a good spot to do just that, my friend. Keep posting and let us know how you do!

    And, all of you here are motivating me. I'll get un-lazy and un-headachey and will log some miles tomorrow. Promise.

    Bear, so excited to have you join in! You must be one tough lady. I see you get title of thread. I lose my way now & then but feel I'm back on track. You remind me of my dd. She at age 43 plays soccer (mostly with women in their 20's) and runs for endurance. Hope you choose to share your progress here.

    NNG, am in awe you could lose that much weight in 6 mon. The walk/run method is fun. Hope you feel much better today!

    Last night was interesting. Told dh I did not want a drink. We sat on lanai. He had grabbed an O'Douls (NA beer). Did I want a drink? Nope. Was I ansy? Yes, was anxious to just make dinner, get kitchen cleaned up, go on with evening. Went to take my contacts out and gave myself a talking to "TMH, be nice, be patient. You know you will not want to take time for end of day conversation, will not want to be bothered going to the club or out for dinner and this is the mindset you have to change"! Came back and cheerfully said I'll join you for an O'Douls. Made it pretty with a nice glass and slice of lime.

    So, yesterday I logged five miles - not much in the grand scheme of things, but not a bad step back towards where I want to be. I think Saturday's workout is going to be a ten-miler at race pace. Hopefully my head will behave itself.

    TMH, I am going to pick up some O'Douls today, just since you mention it. Yesterday I had two glasses of wine when I had promised myself I wouldn't. Having something in the fridge to drink that feels like a bit of a splurge might make that whiney wine-time voice settle down.

    Bear, we have a roller derby group here where I live, too. The girls are so amazing! I know I am too old (58) to get into it, and besides, I am afraid of getting hurt so probably wouldn't do well, but I can fantasize about it! I will skate vicariously, through you, okay?
