Bike Riding [
Posted on July 10, 2007 @ 12:32 pm

[ mood | amused ]

In the 1990's, when I was in my thirties, I began riding a bicycle long distances. It gave me something to feel good about. I might have deep, seemingly intractable problems, but, I thought, at least I'm riding a bike. My legs took me to places that I couldn't appreciate at 55 miles per hour.

The bike and I traveled from New York City to Ocean Grove, down the Jersey shore. I did a solo ride from my apartment to my parents house in upstate New York over the course of four days. (No, I did not camp out. My other companion was my credit card, so I slept on real beds, showered in real bathrooms, and ate at real restaurants.)

In the mid 90's, I learned how to design web pages and subsequently developed a repetitive stress injury in my right arm. I'm nothing if not obsessive and compulsive. Stop work because my arm is about to fall off? Don't be ridiculous! Each week my chiropractor put my arm back together and each week I'd work with the mouse and get on the bike, never allowing any healing time.

I had to give it up in 1997. With much regret, I admitted that I had to chose my arm and my job over my bicycle. It took nine years for me to get back onto the saddle. Last summer I bought a new bike at a bike shop near my house. I'm in love again.

I'm hoping that it's a more mature love. One that doesn't hurt me.

Yesterday, I spent the day building a new website. I worked too long, made too many gif files, didn't stop when my arm began to get sore, and caused a flareup of the repetitive stress injury. Today, when I hopped on the bike to pick up the newspaper, my wrist and hand hurt.

At first I was confused. I hadn't ridden that much last week, but the poor bike had nothing to do with it. When I realized that I was behaving in the same old way, I decided to lay off the website for a day and try to absorb my lesson. That is, before I have to give up my renewed relationship with the old riding habit.

Reached a goal! [
Posted on June 11, 2007 @ 1:17 pm

[ mood | pleased ]

A few years back I read a book called Passing for Thin: Losing Half My Weight and Finding My Self, by Frances Kuffel. In it she talked about how much she loved running on the treadmill. I've always avidly avoided the treadmill. I figured that my old joints couldn't take the abuse, but her book struck a chord so I tried it.

It turns out I like jogging. I've done it both on treadmills, tracks and the road. In 2005, when I started jogging, I said that I wanted to do a 5K. It may seem like a rather long time to finally get to the goal of 3.1 miles when people run much further on a daily basis. But for me, overweight, active but not athletic, and a former long-distance bicyclist, it was a challenge.

So last weekend I participated in the "Trout Run" as part of Livingston Manor's Trout Parade. I got a little nervous because they allowed 45 minutes for the 5K and my best time to date was 46 minutes.

I know I'm slow, but I made it and improved my time by three minutes! I'm in costume (an apron and tongs) because my only association with trout is cooking and eating them. I have a house in "Trout Town, USA" but I still haven't gotten around to fly fishing.

hi all

havent seen any updates in this community for a while.  how are you all going with your weight loss and exercise?

a few weeks ago i decided to start measuring my body parts and weighing myself (which i hate doing and try to avoid) in order to try and track any changes in my body.  i originally was only going to do this monthly, but eventually i decided to do it weekly.  this is not because i am obsessed with it or anything, moreso to get an accurate idea of how things are going, since all of us females know that our bodily measurements change over the course of the month.

i am now playing netall twice a week (as opposed to pretty much NO exercise  6 months ago) and am trying to get back on a good eating plan (which will be made a lot easier by me going back to full time work - why is it so expensive to eat healthily and so cheap to eat crap!? *pout*)

so i did the whole thing this morning and got a little bit of a nice surprise.  this is by no means groundbreaking amounts of loss, but i was still happy.  this is over the last three weeks.  although my weight has gone up and so has my upper torso (and my bust is smaller *cries*), everything else is go, go, go!!!

weight: up by 0.5kgs
upper arms: down by 2.5cms
bust: down by 1.5 cms (*booooo*)
upper torso: up by 3 cms
waist: down by 3 cms
hips: down by 0.5 cms
calves: down by 0.5 cms

it's nice to actually see results on paper, even if you cant see them on your body yet.  i'm a bit confused as to why my torso has increased so much (fyi - i take this measurement of my torso just below my boobs) but apart from that i'm happy.  hopefully in another 12 months i will be able to make a graph showing how my body has changed in relation to what i am doing with it and what i am putting into it.  also, i hope to use this data to pinpoint if there is anything i am doing that is getting in my way of my objectives.

hurrah for confirmation that what i am doing is actually working, however gradually.

Limiting Sugar: Where's the Information? [
Posted on February 11, 2007 @ 4:14 pm

[ mood | curious ]

I recently talked about reading the book Get the Sugar Out: 501 Simple Ways to Cut the Sugar Out of Any Diet, by Ann Louise Gittleman, M.S., C.N.S.. One of the points that Gittlemen made was that in all of hoopla over low-fat and low-carb diets, no one talks about lowering the amount of sugar that is consumed in the US.

She suggested that one try to shoot for 20 to 40 grams per day. So I picked up my trusty copy of The NutriBase Nutrition Facts Desk Reference, by Dr. Art Ulene. I expected to be able to quickly find the grams of sugar in my morning banana. But it wasn't listed anywhere.

This is a very thorough book. When I was keeping a log of the calories I consumed last year, I generally found the information I wanted within its pages. So I was shocked at this gap.

Today's trip to Barnes and Noble revealed that while many books give detailed lists of components of the food we eat, I found none that listed the sugar grams.

For most foods this isn't a problem, it's on the label. But for whole foods I'd like to know.

Does anyone have a guide that has this vital information?

Book 7: Get the Sugar Out [
Posted on February 06, 2007 @ 9:47 am

[ mood | accomplished ]

No, this is not a spy novel about ejecting a mole, but a book about the process of removing one of the most insidious "foods" out of our diet. Sugar is everywhere and it's the root of multiple evils. Getting it out of my diet has been a goal for the last year.

Get the Sugar Out: 501 Simple Ways to Cut the Sugar Out of Any Diet, by Ann Louise Gittleman is a good part of the program. Anyone who looks at my reading list can see that I read the book Beating Diabetes, by David M. Nathan & Linda M. Delahanty last year. The question is does Deirdre have diabetes?

Answer: no and I don't intend to get it. Diabetes runs through my family, tearing out members here and there. Both my parents got Type 2 adult onset in their later years. It made my father miserable and I believe hastened his death. My mother manages her disease with a strict diet regimen, but still, it has the potential of exacerbating other conditions that she has.

So, last year I made the effort to remove processed sugar from my diet. In the US this is no small task. Sugar, in all it's forms, is stuffed into so many foods that getting rid of it became a challenge. Label reading, waiter quizzing, and bringing my own foods to family gatherings became the norm.

Now I want to reduce the amount of foods with a high glycemic index and Gittleman's book is an excellent tool for doing that. She has detailed information that I haven't seen elsewhere like a list of what foods have a high glycemic index which tends to raise blood sugar quickly. She has a list of the 41 names that appear of food labels for sugar in most all of its forms. And while I don't need all of the 501 tips, just reading a book about sugar is helpful reinforcement for my process.

Personal training questions [
Posted on February 02, 2007 @ 12:04 pm

1.  Do you have a personal trainer?
2.  If yes, how often do you see him/her?
3.  If yes, does s/he let you do your own thing (eg. classes) or is it gym work all the time?
4.  If you don't have a personal trainer, have you considered one, or had one in the past?
5.  Any other comments?

I had a personal trainer for the last 3 months of last year.  I saw her once a week, but it was for a fitness challenge I was doing.  Now, I'm out of the challenge and have to decide if I wish to continue.  I had to go to the gym 5 x a week with her, and do what she requested of me.  But I love spinning and pilates, and any spinning, pilates etc was on top of the 5 x at the gym (cardio machines and weights).  I never got to classes, because of time, and I got bored of cardio and weights.  I really want to do spinning once a week and weights once a week as well as work out with her.  I just wonder if it's possible.  Any comments appreciated.

Exersises to tone up flabby Arms [
Posted on January 11, 2007 @ 2:19 pm

I just printed this out to put up on my wall, thought some people here may be Intrested in it.

Tricep Kickbacks

Hold a dumbbell in each hand and stand with your feet hip-width apart with a slight bend to your knees.
Bend over at the waist so that your torso is slightly above parallel with the floor. Bend both elbows so that your upper arms are locked at your sides parallel to the floor.
Keeping your arms still, straighten your arms behind you until the end of the dumbbell is pointing down toward the floor with your palms facing in towards your body.
Hold for a beat and inhale, slowly lowering your arms back to the starting position, and repeat.
To do this properly, remember to keep your abs tight and your back flat.

Hey all, I'm Cass. i'm 24 and slightly obsessive about health. I am always trying to find ways to be more healthy and lose weight. I am not extreme heavy-in fact, i havent weighed myself for about a year. The last time i was weight was at Curves, my old gym. I weighed 67.9 kilos and i weighed exactly the same 3 months later when i quit. Of course it didn't help that i worked in a chocolate cafe and went to gym less than twice a week!Anyway my point was, i don't like scales, i believe they only serve to upset people and promote unhealthy weight loss diets, pills and even eating disorders. I am a big fan on tracking loss of body fat and growth of lean muscle tissue which i hope to do using body fat calipers, and taking measurements of my limbs and torso.

My diet/fitness guru is Donna Aston. I own several of her books  and whilst I am not following her diet/excersise reccomendations as rigidly as i would like, her whole outlook of health and fitness really makes sense to me and is reall accissible. I reccommend Donna Aston to all of you wholeheartedly!

After many years of reading about excersise i think i have finally found it in myself to dedicate time towards weight loss. Eating a healthy diet will take some work and I am planning to see a nutritionist within the next month. I plan on walking every day for an hour, doing a small amount of weight baring work at home (using my own body weight not actual weights), attending aqua aerobis 1-2 times per week and joining a weekly group workout class.

My ideal weight (for bmi purposes)  is 55 kilos, though i wont be working towards meeting that number, rather i will be working towards losing fat from my stomach, hips and thighs, toning my muscles, increasing the vitality of my skin and hair and regulating my mentrual/ovulation cycle. I am hoping within 2 months i will go from a size 14/ Large, to a size 12/Medium. I am hoping within 4 months i will have the kind of body i wont be too scared to bare at the beach and I am hoping within 6 months my fertility will be boosted and my husband and I can start trying for a baby!

I am really hoping that within the WEEK my moods will stop swinging all over the place and I will not be so disheartened when my stomch refuses to be held in place by my jeans.

The other day i tried on a new swimsuit for aqua aerobics and I was thrown into a depression as a realised my pasty, dimples, wobbly body makes me unhappier than i'd previously thought. Funny how easily you can forget about your own body , isnt it.

a weird question... [
Posted on November 02, 2006 @ 10:33 am


so i find that when i run on the treadmill, let go of the handle, and then after a few minutes go to grab it again, i get a shock.

&it's really really annoying.

does this happen to anyone else?

how could i stop it?

it doesnt happen all the time, either.. i can't work out what causes it... but if i dont let go (run holding the handle looking like a dork) i dont get the shock.


thanks.. i know it's an odd question but you know.. fitness community &all :D

Our new weight loss program is called Bringing Sexy Back.

It consists of us doing Body Combat (this doesn't make me as nauseus as RPM does), weekly; and taking nightly walks together with the kids through Summer until around April when it gets cool again. Obviously as night comes later we'll put the kids to bed for a nap later and take them out later in the night to avoid burning in the horizontal Sun.

On top of this, I'm doing balance every Friday to keep my flexibility and peace, yoga most nights, and leg weights once or twice a week; and an upper body workout on Saturday with Liam.

We were eating too many snacks and not drinking enough water, not thinking about how much crap was in the meals we ate, and we'd become a bit complacent, assuming our metabolism was just great and we could eat whatever we liked. NOT TRUE!

So now, we drink water and have juice ONCE a day; no bought biscuits, instead I'm making them. No lollies - they go to mum today. We bought dried fruit and yogurt buds as our new lollies. And they're very yummy and appetising. Red, white and pale yellow. They look delicious and taste great too. Zander thinks they're lollies anyway. And I'm checking the info on packaged foods now and limiting them, making my own when I can; this means less pesto and more pasta sauce. We have to get healthy food now. Snacks are biscuits and fruit, yogurt or salad. We'll be living on lots of salads. We will have salad with lunch and dinner every day.

I'm also going to learn how to Swing dance. I saw a great episode of Postcards and I'm hooked! Looks great. And I dress like that anyway. We tried to dance in Body Jam at the megamix yesterday (1.5 hours with pump, combat, jam and balance) but we couldn't grasp it. We figure it'd take around 6 months of weekly lessons to figure out that whole set she assumed we'd get! But it made us laugh a lot. I tried the whole way through. It's hard without a mirror in front of you! Looking at the instructor gave me a false sense of doing it right! But oh well. Latin dancing is not easy to grasp in 10 minutes.

Keep up your walking, and cardio and weights. And resist that snacking. It's not necessary! You only need fruit. Don't eat crap!

I joined this community thinking that it was not an ED community, and then realised a lot of members are also members of thinspiration and Pro-ED communities.
I am not comfortable with that, so I am removing myself.
Thankyou very much to those of you who have been supportive.
