Thinkin' about Ice Cream

Today talked to the Trainer and found he agrees, I need to lose about 30 pounds (going by my body fat ratio, measured with the nasty pinching device). Then he took me through a fairly tough series of circuit exercises and recommended a lot of changing up my routine, which makes a certain amount of sense - I maintain because my body's used to my same ol' workout.

He's willing to give me a break on actual paid sessions, but we'll have to see what the tax season brings (not to mention those car repairs). It likely won't happen soon.

Heath Ledger. What a freakin' shame. He was such a GOOD actor - quite apart from the story, every time I thought about Brokeback Mountain it was because of the intensity of the character of Ennis. And I just plain enjoyed A Knight's Tale for silly fun. He could do both ends of the spectrum pretty damned well. Ah, what does pass through someone's mind? Who knows? It's a shame, anyway.

I was lauded a genius who should go for her Master's at work because I used the word "Pagination" in a sentence. It drew blank stares from the woman I was training, and she had to ask me what it meant. *headdesk* I did say I really needed to at least finish my Bachelor's, first.

I tried to open my iPod to replace the battery with the little iJuice kit I bought, but it's not easy (thanks, Apple) and I worry about breaking my poor ol' Iggy. So I'll put this off until absolutely necessary (he holds a charge for about six hours still), or until I can afford a new one if I break this one.

I forgot about Terminator last night. Oops. Gotta get used to having that on Monday nights. I just went to bed early, instead.

I'm starting to FEEL like it was an intense workout, and it really was just six exercises repeated twice each in a tight circuit. There's something to this physical training thing!

BTW, I've meant to ask, did you ever end up trying Alli, or is it a bust? I'm very hesitant to spend that much money on it unless it really works, especially since I don't have THAT much left to lose.

bust. lost NOTHING. Even the endocrinologist was surprised (and that's when he came up with that crack about the laws of physics)

It was horrible. Walking around tight cheeked because you might leak. Lining your underpants with pantiliners so farts won't ring your clothes or worse the sneak attack fart that's really a third of a cup of foul smelling orange 'pepperoni' oil as they call it and act like there'll be just a drop or two. and it'll go away in a few weeks they say. They lie

Ah! Yuck, indeed. Well, then. I'm sticking with my tried-and-true, if slower, methods, then. (You'd think I'd know by now; none of them have ever worked.)

Sorry to hear it sucked that badly!

Alli should work. It does work (which is why the endocrinologist thinks I eat 1 ton of food a day since it didn't work for me)
it's just very unpleasant
Jan. 24th, 2008 03:57 am (UTC)
Well... I don't know that I need to lose so much weight that that much unpleasantness would be worth it...

i'd try the exercise first

30 pounds

Those body fat measuring thingies make everybody feel like they should look like a Darfur refugee!

They also don't take into account that you have a god given right to be a little smooshy after age 30.

So there.

Re: 30 pounds
Oh, I don't mind. I'm the one who said "thirty pounds." I'm not aiming for Sarah Michelle Gellar in S7, I'm looking more for Rebecca Romjin in this season's Ugly Betty (although I don't think everything will be quite that bouncy). Size 6-8, not 00-0. *g*

But hugs always appreciated. I know I look pretty good (I've been heavy so much of my life it was quite shock to find out how petite I actually am).

Size 6-8
Hon, I could only get below a 10 if I had my hipbones removed!

I'm hovering in the 14-16 range right now and I sit on most of it, so I don't see it!

Good luck, though. Just be whatever weight that keeps you happy and healthy. That's all anybody ever should be!

Re: Size 6-8
I actually discovered that under my fat, I have a pretty small skeleton; mostly I have size-8 hips, but there are some sixes I can slide into now but can't button because of the fat. I know women are supposed to have a reasonable layer of subcutaneous fat, so I'm not looking to purge it all (I really don't have the self-esteem issue), just fit into some of the pants I bought that claim to be the size I'm wearing. *g* I decided that when I get to my goal, any of these pants that still don't fit will get donated somewhere, because they are not the size they claim to be (this is especially true of Newport News pants - their shirts, dresses, everything else fits. Why not the pants?).

BTW, I just LOVE "Sup Fruits"!

Pagination. ::wince::

Good luck with the trainer.
Jan. 23rd, 2008 01:27 pm (UTC)
Yeah, made me wince, too. And I'm a very bad dictionary, when someone asks me to define a word I'm often flummoxed, myself. "Can't you tell what it means from the content of the sentence?!?"

How's Mary doing?

Jan. 23rd, 2008 08:36 am (UTC)
Good luck!
