i totally binged today...there goes my effort...it's because of this presentation that is very important and i have it on monday but i still haven't finished it. and i have to learn it by memory...in two days and my professor still hasn't sent me an answer. uuugh i'm such a mess, but after all this ends i promise i will pull myself together. i'm saying this just to be accountable.
weekend is gonna be ****, but hopefully i will be able to control myself...
sarah- yes, health is all that matters, i also just received a news from a friend who only went for a regular check to a doctor and ended up telling her that she has to go to a surgery. it totally crushed her. and it shocked me to.

happytobeamom: thanks for weighing in on my exercise habits! I try to switch it up but always feel like I'm doing the same thing over and over. There are only so many cardio machines and I use 2/3 of them every day I'm at the gym: 15 mins elliptical, 15 mins stepper, 15 mins treadmill; or, 20 mins stepper, 20 mins elliptical, etc. Sometimes I play with the resistance and / or incline (like this morning I jogged/walked uphill on the treadmill). Do you think this is enough to keep my body guessing? I feel like I should be making dramatic changes like going swimming or hiking or biking ... what do you think? Do small switch-ups like these make a difference?

leblebi - i think what you are doing is fantastic! if you really want to shock your body occasionally, don't switch machines, just do 45-60min on one machine and push through. you will find that what you are doing now is "interval" training because you get a very short recovery while you are switching machines. if you set your machine and stay on it, you might find that you hit a "wall" at approx 20 min but if you push through it, you will find that your body responds well and you will have another type of cross training but without changing your gym routine.

you can als play with time of day, incline, resistance. for example, today i did sprints on the treadmill instead of a constant run. my sprints are a one-minute cycle. sprint for 15 sec (takes a few sec for machine to get up to speed) then hop off while it slows to jog speed. finish off the minute jogging. next sprint is 1 km/hr faster than the last. i started my sprints at 12km/hr and finished at 16. i burned the same # of calories as i would have with just running at 10km/hr in that same timeframe. (make sure you are really warmed up before you try something like this!)

i like to change up impact as well. sometimes i go for a while with little or no impact on my muscles (spinning, elliptical, biking, treadmill) and then i'll also do things like high impact aerobics, running outside or kickboxing which really "jars" the joints/muscles...

do what you love...what you have time for...and if you want to try something new, DO IT

I am glad i could 'help'

(yup, i am addicted to exercise and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!)

So many people here doing so well, fighting the good fight, just to name a few, Ari Lizzy Vixisn Paris and Sarah that pound could be water fluctuations so hang in there and also I hope your friend's sister is ok.

Someone here mentioned Ground Hogs's Day, on one of the challenge threads, I forget who, but the conecpt is ringing a bell today. Sometimes I feel like it's the same day over and over again, faced with the same challenges, trying to learn the same things. Hey, if Bill made it out of there then so can we.

Day 1. Again.

Today WILL be day 53 I have been feeling much more bingy the past few days; I suspect it's related to bipolar moodshifts, and that it doesn't necessarily mean I'm doing something wrong, which is good to realize. That said, I've gotta get back in the habit of handling it without food. Even though I didn't binge last night, I still found myself totally obsessing about a box of crackers and eating one every five minutes or so. That's not a binge, but it's definitely compulsive eating, and I wish I had tried some thought-stopping instead, or looked at my motivational notecards.

Anyway, I hope everyone has a wonderful day! Remember, you CAN forgive yourself for your mistakes.

happymom Thanks so much for "weighing in" on my routine. This is great, great advice and I will start next week...I do the interval training you described once in a blue moon but it's easy for me to get sidetracked for some reason, I find my high-intensity spurts dwindle after the 3rd one or so. I typically will run really fast for 30 seconds, then walk fast/jog for 2 mins but that might be too lax for my fitness level. I'm a gym rat as well so I need something to shock the system completely. Way back in the day I used to stay on one machine like you suggested but for some reason stopped doing that...I will revive it Monday.

Once again thanks so much and hope you're having a great weekend!

Finished Day 7 and managed to have a night out without ruining everything...had a chicken pitta in a bar, then 2 beers and a gin and tonic. Went over my usual calorie limit but I'd done a ton of exercise during the day so still over -1000 calorie deficit even counting tonight. And more importantly for me, I was watching football for two hours in a room full of boys drinking beer and eating crisps, and I managed to have just 1 beer and didn't touch the crisps at all. Result!
