Intermittent fasting--results so far.

Monday, August 15, 2011      5 comments

I started my experiment with intermittent fasting on 7-10-11 at 158.4 lbs. and today weigh exactly 148 lbs. For me, that's an astonishing rate of loss as I'm used to losing at the rate of about .5 to 1 lb. per week. BMI has come down from 28.... Read more

Sculling and F-E-A-R ~~~!!

Wednesday, May 04, 2011      2 comments

I'm really taking to this new sport, for me. I get up at 5:30 a.m., when it's still pitch dark, and then get a quick shower to wake up. Then slip into my bike shorts a... Read more

The power of strength training

Sunday, May 01, 2011      0 comments

Today I watched several YouTube videos showing how to get back into a scull after falling out or tipping over. My sculling teacher has assured me that at least once I will be in the drink--everyone ends up in the water--and that I will need to ... Read more

Fuel for sculling

Saturday, April 30, 2011      1 comments

Today was my first day without pontoons in the single shell, a boat about 20" wide and 20' long. This was my 10th lesson in learning how to scull and I am loving it. I have to admit that I had a knot in my stomach when I thought about rowing w... Read more

Guess the dinner calories

Thursday, April 28, 2011      3 comments

Today, day 3 of the 28 day Eating Clean challenge, was a good one. Breakfast was yummy, and I made sure that I had some fat to start my day and keep me satisfied. French toast made with gluten free millet bread soaked in 1 whole egg and so... Read more

Eating Clean and real life!

Just got an email from my church, reminding me about the church-wide picnic this coming Sunday afternoon. Menu: pulled pork, baked beans, soft drinks. Everyone is encouraged to bring brownies, cookies or other "goodie." Hmmm. I think I wi... Read more

Tonight I am going over to the rowing center on the lake near my house, and I will spend at least 30 minutes on a rowing machine, or ERG. I decided a couple of months ago that rowing looked like a graceful and fun sport, and so I enrolled in be... Read more

Catching Up!

Friday, October 01, 2010      0 comments

Well, it's been a while since I've posted any thoughts or results. I've been looking back at my data and I've been in the 140's for over a year. That's not a happy thought! I've still got 20 more pounds to go and it's time to get out of the h... Read more

Shrinking into my clothes, slowly.

Wednesday, April 21, 2010      3 comments

I'm still losing at the rate of about 2 pounds a week. Pretty amazing that it takes eating between 800 and 1000 calories to lose that amount. I guess my hypothyroidism ha... Read more

The genetic test I purchased came with a consultation with a geneticist. I called right after I got my results--"Carb Reducer" and "Higher intensity" exercises--and got someone who was equipped to answer the basic questions and walk the custome... Read more

Living with restrictions based on genetics and BMR--Yikes!!

Monday, April 05, 2010      1 comments

Today I got some bad news. I used a gizmo loaned to me by my trainer; something that is supposed to determine pretty exactly what my own personal BMR is. He loaned me a little machine into which I breathed even before I got out of bed in the ... Read more

Friday, April 02, 2010      2 comments

This is the 3rd installment of my journal about the affects of my genetic test results. How has this affected my life? Well, when I saw that I was "carb reduced" and "high MET" (high exercise) I was surprisesd and took a big gulp. I had alr... Read more

Genetic Test Results--Very interesting!!

Monday, March 29, 2010      1 comments

About 3 weeks ago I ordered a genetic test to learn what type of diet (low-carb or low fat) my body was predisposed to for losing weight. The test was sent to me by FedEX and I got it in 3 days after placing my order online. It came with fu... Read more

Managing my weight through genetic testing.

Thursday, March 04, 2010      3 comments

Today I saw an article in the WSJ reporting on a study that showed that a genetic test can help people choose which type of diet would work best for them biologically. The test shows whether one has a predisposition toward a low-carb diet or a ... Read more
