I'm going to try to link to an article that was in Newsweek this week. It's about how exposure to chemicals in common use (eg BPA) in utero or at an early age can program your body to be fat. This may be part of the cause of the sharp rise in obesity in the last few decades. Just another way we're messing up our world/future generations.

A lot of us have gotten larger over the years. Today my four sisters and I spent time pouring over old family photos as we are trying to put together a special album for my dad's 80th birthday (October 25th).

Wow! Shocked We looked pretty good!! I can hardly believe how skinny we were and what's weird is I thought I was fat. ???? Anyway, I can lose the aging but I could lose some of those pounds.

...their hormone levels, and possibly had their iodine levels tested?

Both subclinical hypothyroidism and breast cancer run in my maternal family.

A doctor gave me a book to read called _Iodine, Why You Need It, Why You Can't Live Without It_ by David Brownstein, MD.

Any input?

<with my usual caveats that while my family may be low on iodine, there may be some people who could overdose on it>

We did this today at Boot Camp. It's called On the Minute.

5 squat thrusts (bend your knees, squat down, push your knees out behind you in a pushup position, knees back in under you, stand up; put your hands on a sturdy bench if you can't do it on the floor)
10 pushups (full pushups or on-your-knee pushups or on a bench or on the wall; depends on your body)
15 squats (feet shoulder width apart, weight slightly on the outside of your feet, head and shoulders up, sit back)

Do this list in a minute. A kid with a stop watch would be handy Wink If you finish within the minute, then rest until the next minute starts. If you finish after the minute, rest until the *next* minute starts.

Do this for 20 minutes.

Wow; was that tiring.

See if your kids can do it; see if you can get 20 complete lists done in 20 minutes. Make a list on the wall, to motivate family members. Those who can do 20 reps in 20 minutes get listed in the: On the Minute Wall of Fame Wink

Does anyone know, on a high quality heart rate monitor....is the calories burned information accurate? I do have to input my age, weight, heighth to get this function to work. But, I wonder if the info is based on "me" or what I "should" burn during exercise.

I'm wondering if my thyroid issues are accounted for or not.

Okay, this next week is going to be more difficult for me with traveling and relatives. I will just do the best I can to stay on plan. Since I won't be weighing again on Monday, I'll report now that I'm down 2 pounds, so I just want to keep it off next week!

In particular, the pms diet confirms something I already knew about myself. I have a really hard time with needing carbs one week of my cycle. Besides eating the carbs, I have to fight the panic that this is the end of my self-discipline and tomorrow I will weigh 300 pounds again. The suggestions are great.

I like the idea of the 'top of my game' diet too.

I'm reading a book called Binge Breakers which is really insightful to the pyschology behind bingeing and going off diets.

Rather than looking at what derails your diet, the author suggests looking at what things are going on when things are going RIGHT. It was kind of a 'duh!' moment for me, and thought I would pass that tidbit along.

Dh and I are going back to the strict Phase 1 of South Beach for the next two weeks. He requested this 2 weeks ago but we did some traveling and needed to use up some non Phase 1 things I had in the house, so we are starting today. I'm hoping it will jump start things again for me. I'm feeling pretty discouraged this morning.

I'm down .5 of a pound from Monday. I think being on my feet most of Wednesday and all of Thursday was a BIG benefit!

So ladies, remember, the holiday was yesterday and now it's over. It DOES NOT continue on until New Years! So, put those leftovers temptations in the freezer or in the tummies of our family or give or toss them out. Eat SUPER clean today - just to remind our bodies that the Lord is the One who is in control and not our VERY WEAK FLESH!!!

I'm glad Amazon.com has a good return policy. So far I've only been doing the intro to learn the basic steps. Hannah and I started the 20 minute Express workout today and it skipped and stopped and we lost almost 5 full minutes. So, back it goes and hopefully the replacement will come quickly.

I'd really like to improve my upper body (esp arms) strength. I'm even thinking of making one of my goals for 2011 to be able to do, oh, I don't know, 6 chin ups or something like that. (At the moment I can do zero.) Also, 25 real push ups (at the moment I can do 12 "girl" push ups.)

Do you know of a program/schedule I could print out to keep me on track. You know, something like this week do x number of bicep curls with 8 lb weights, then it gradually increases what you should do. I suppose I could come up with something myself, but I'd rather not reinvent the wheel if I don't have to.

Thanks,

Put a blue light bulb in your fridge. Blue is associated with mold, and will make the food appear unapetizing.

Sniffing peppermeint oil before eating reduced appetite and helped with controlling portions.

I don't know if these work or not, but they are worth a try. There aren't many diet tips I haven't heard over the years, but these were new.

I can't watch this in Peru, but I loosely follow the show online.

Often I have wanted them to get someone on there like me, that gains, no matter what you do. Someone with thyroid issues or whatever.

So I am kind of hacked that there are people there purposely gaining weight. There are others more committed to losing that didn't make the cut to be on the show, and there those guys are throwing away such a great opportunity.

Plus, they just aren't helping the whole "calories in/calories out" mentality.

It just irritates me.

I posted the other day on General Chats, because I totally forgot about this section on chfweb! (that's what happens when you start getting old and don't get on here much anymore. Wink )

I think I found the greatest app of all time and it is free! It is called My Fitness Pal. It keeps track of everything, and imho much easier than Weight Watchers online (which I joined a few months ago, but found it to be too much work!) You can also access this site on your computer!

Okay, boy did I relate to Kate's statement that she has no control over her weight! Nothing I do seems to really help. I have had no refined sugars for over a month now. I stopped gaining weight right away, and hoped I would start losing, but that scale is STUCK. Sad

Okay, here's my list:
1) supplements: fish oil and multi-vitamin
2) weights - 2 days a week, run or cycle - 4 days a week
3) I have not counted calories since I was a teenager, but I'm going to for awhile. I'd like to see if I'm really eating that many calories or if because of pre-menopause stuff my body is just hanging onto every calorie and ounce of fat for dear life Mad

Encouragement is great, but I'll take accountability, too! If I don't post in the morning how I did the day before, please PM me!

This sounds like a good crunchy snack to me!

Roasted Garbanzo beans

1 can (14 oz) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
2 tsps olive oil
1 tsp cinnamon or your spice(s) of choice
1&frac12; tsp brown sugar
&frac14; tsp salt

Place chickpeas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat. Bake at 450 F for 30 minutes. (You didn't miss anything here. You don't oil or season them until after they are done. In fact, for an extra healthy treat, try them when they get out of the oven before even adding the oil. They are enjoyable all on their own.) Transfer chickpeas to a bowl and mix thoroughly with the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy hot, or bring to room temperature and store in an air-tight container. Like popped corn, the chickpeas are never as good the next day. However, they are still quite enjoyable 3-4 days after making them.

If you are on a very low carb diet make sure you drink PLENTY of fluids. Ketones are formed and cleared out of your body by your kidneys. Ketones can damage the kidney if they just sit in their for long periods of time so you need to be constantly flushing your kidneys with fluid to make the ketones more dilute.

15 min. Zumba, 10 min walking, 5 min going up and down stairs (YIKES)

I have not been doing a good job getting the weight training in. Frankly I forget! Will work on it tomorrow.

Wow, I've noticed how hard it is for me to get my life together on the week-ends to update...so I'm not going to stress about it.

Didn't weigh in this morning...last weight: 190.4 -- up .1 of a pound from my lowest last week.

Killer headache and nausea today so I didn't exercise or eat tons...

But I'm still here.


In His Joy and Grace,

Kate

You runners will understand.

This morning, I finished my timed mile in 12 minutes flat. I was hoping to break 12. Yes, I know that is not the best time in the world, but it is really good for me.

I really want to break the 12 minute mark. So I went and bought new shoes today--it is time. AND I am not runing tomorrow--taking a rest day.

I want to try my new shoes so badly, and try to break the 12 minute mark.....but my best chance really is to wait until Wednesday. REally, really, reallly.....I'll just keep telling myself that.


In Him--Tracy

Some of this is probably common knowledge in this group, but I found it interesting enough to share anyway.

I'm doing a juice cleanse/fast. The Lord laid it on my heart to fast for both spiritual clarity and physical detoxing. And fasting with no nutrients would not be good for me right now so, to help with the detoxing, I'm doing a 5 day juice fast.

And today is the headache day. It is better after taking a 2 1/2 hour nap this afternoon.

On day 1 to my son with a 'mean green juice': "Yeah I know this looks dreadful but it tastes ... really awful!"

On day 2 to my daughter with a juice of red kale, celery, cucumber, lemon, ginger and apple plus carrot: "Who would have thought that adding a carrot to a greenish-redish juice would have turned it brown? YUM!"

My juices are mostly vegetables (always at least 60% but generally closer to 80% or more) with a 1/2 lemon and 1/2-1 apple thrown in. I tried a juice of just fruit for one breakfast and I couldn't handle more than 1/2 c because of the sugar. So this morning my breakfast was 3 c butternut squash and 1/2 apple with cinnamon on top. It wasn't really awful!

I'm hoping that by tomorrow I'll start feeling perky. I've been feeling so sluggish for such a long time and I've been praying this will help to cleanse my system in a gentle way. And then it will take me another 2-3 days to ease into eating with raw vegetables and fruit along with juicing. I'm being very careful realizing I'm an old lady!! Wink

"Becoming a Woman of Prayer" ... God has shown us what HE wants HIS women to be like, so he carefully recorded information about many women for a reason. They were not perfect they had problems they struggled with unbelief but they obeyed at a critical point in their walk with God and HE blessed them.
