Thank you.

Today was a failure. I ate half a Milky Way bar after lunch. A goofy deal.

I did get a SuperSlow workout in after work. I think next week I'll move my session to Mondays.

Still snacking, but eating less overall. I have out out a lot of fast food, and meat. My reflux has mellowed, and so has my indigestion. The only snack I had today was an orange in the AM and three chips Embarassed in the PM after work.

Heading for the dry sauna now.

Still a failure, but...I only snacked on a bag of peanut M&M's in the morning. Wait, I also had a handful of frosted mini Wheats. Still "down" 5-6 pounds, sometimes 7, and I can wear my Penguin polos and not look like a stuff bratwurst. So, size before weight.

Well,

Sitting on the coach this afternoon watching Pardon the Interuption when I realized I only had a 1/4 of a Ding Dong left in my hand and chocolate crumbs on my lips. Yea, failure. After that I ate....a lot.

But I did get my Body by Science workout in. As follows:


Nautilus Nitro Back Extension
Nautilus Nitro Leg Press
Nautilus Nitro Compound Row
Nautilus Nitro Overhead Press
Nautilus Nitro Abdominal

I feel like I've been in a car wreck.

Until tomorrow.

So, until tomorrow.

Friday Failure

Saturday S Day

Sunday S Day

Although Friday was a bust, and Saturday was a food fest, I have still lost a couple of pounds (as noticed via Sunday's weigh in). I would assume from trying to drink at least a gallon of watter a day. (See post in general comments.)

I did hit golf balls four at least 45 minutes a day on Fri-Sun. Not jogging ten miles, but activity.

I am traveling so the last several days have been...(wait for it)...failures. but my meals are smaller overall lately.

The Super Slow workouts must be working. I ran into a woman I haven't seen in 4-5 years and she said, "Hi, you look great." I think I blushed like Dopey.

179 on Friday. I spiked at 184 earlier last week. My weight flucuates, as all of ours does, but I am jumping to a lower weight than I was in the past.

The Super Slow workouts are going well. Last Wednesday I had the strongest workout I have had in sometime. Time under tension was up in all my lifts. I will be adding weight this coming Wednesday.

The garden is in, and the yard, beat up by another Teton eco-system winter is starting to come around.

I've heard of slow and heavy weight training. Are you doing a video system, or are you training on your own? I'm glad it's working for you!

Clarinetgal,

I have access to Nautilus Nitro machines at a local physical therapists. I have read, and continue to reread Power of 10 and Body by Science. Both books (along with Fred Hahn's Slow Burn) are the best writings in the topic. So, to be more direct, I do not have a video. There are excellent videos on youtube featuring Dr. Doug McGuff and Adam Zickerman either performing Super Slow workouts, or demonstrating the method.

Have a great weekend.

We've gotten battered by hail several times already. When the last storm blew in a few days ago, I decided that was it. Whatever happened would just be. The first time we replaced plants, but I'm done with that. Luckily it wasn't as bad this time.

I haven't done any yard work - or anything much for that matter - lately. We've had a lot of rain lately and the weeds are starting to look scary!

I seem to have remained at my "shelf" of weight homeostasis. A week in California with extended family, friends, grilling, croissant sandwiches, Coke floats, pies, and unbridled eating. I forgot Otter Pops. I weigh the same.

Wednesday was my first SS workout in two weeks. It went very well, aside from being stiff and sore.

A success story for sure! Sounds like you had fun. But, please tell me that the Otter Pops don't contain otter Shocked

Weekend S Days.

Friday was a failure, but I did a Soloflex strength training session in. It was a nice change after almost 22 weeks of Super Slow.

Let us see what Monday brings.

Nothing special in regards to No S at the moment. I have not gained weight though. I am doing three Soloflex workouts per week instead of just one. Feeling better.

Good Saturday.

Weight is the same. I am going to start my next weight loss assualt the third week of August. Really pleased that I have maintained through the summer. There have been a lot of grillings and otter pops this summer.

I have reworked my workouts. I have been using the Soloflex three days a week, about 20-30 minute workouts, full body. It is a nice change. I am sore, but not head on a accident type debilitating soreness I get doing Super Slow at the moment.

Edit: I guess I should read my own previous posts, you all already know I am Soloflexing.

Success!

I am not sure why?

Breakfast: 6" sub from Subway, Diet Coke

Lunch: a reasonably portioned plate of General Tso's chicken

Dinner: a rosti, yogurt, small slice of melon, a pickle

I did cool off with two otter pops in the PM.

A Soloflex workout in the PM as well. I have bought a couple of shock ring resistance bands, pretty good.

Thank you Aspencer. However, today was a miserable failure. Not sure why?

Tomorrow is a Soloflex day though.

Oh well, mark it and move on. I failed Friday, too, and my S Days were much worse than I was hoping for. But, that's all in the past, so I'm back at it today - let's do this!

Sunday S Day, today Failure.

Just forgot today was Monday.

Tomorrow, Soloflex day. I have had that almost as long as I have been married.

Thank you.

Success!

Yes, I wll count today bueno, despite:

Breakfast: macaroni salad and...chocolate cake. (I know, but it had eggs in it.)

Lunch: a frozen burrito and cantelope. (I Regretted that later.)

Dinner: Stroganoff on rice, tomato/cucumber/onion salad, pears mixed with mandarin wedges.

Workout: Full body Soloflex workout. It was great. My wife worked out later in the day.

Over43,

So I just spent a little time reading your thread and YES, we do eat alike! Your posts cracked me up too!

I will also say that my goal weight to be at a normal BMI (24 ish), is only about 7 lbs under what you are today. So, again, this gives me some hope I'll be able to get there eventually if I stay the No S course. I need a little more consistency around my exercise (like you have), but I'm surprisingly moderate about this. There are time periods where I do something every single day during a week and a then times where I do only a few days. It's just my schedule nowadays and I'm sure even that will change too!

Anyway, keep up the good work (and the yummy meals)!

Choc cake yum! Very Happy

Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my thread. I really enjoyed your perspective. It helps so much just knowing I'm not alone.

Btw, how are liking the soloflex workout?

Success!

Breakfast: one slice of bacon, egg/rice breakfast burrito, small wedge of cantaloupe

Lunch: burger patty, fries, sliced tomato

Dinner: Tyson chicken strips, Rice-a-Roni, cantelope/grape salad

For those of you who have stopped in and said hello, thank you.

As far as the Soloflex is concerned, I have had mine for 27 years. I have used it on and off, which is apparent when you read my daily posts. Usually I get bored with a certain workout and do something else. However, the Soloflex is probably the best exercise machine I have ever used. Right now I can get a full body workout in, and not have the awful post workout soreness I get with traditional free weights or Nautilus. I have not had to have an ice bath in a month. My wife, who has a basketful of physical issues, uses it, and my two 15 year old kids use it. So, I like it.

I have been reading your posts since starting No S and also find your posts humorous and down to earth. It is refreshing to read posts that strive for moderation but not perfection. And with real meals and a dash of humor...

Success!

Breakfast: Homemade breakfast sandwich. I must say, it was better than Subway.

Lunch: Six inch sandwich ham and cheese (I think), Diet Dr. Pepper, lunch box size bag of chips.

Dinner: A pressure cooked short rib on rice, with gravy, cantaloupe/cucumber/grape/strawberry salad, half a dinner role.

Woke up at 4:00 AM. Worked out (Soloflex) at 5:15. First day back to school. You don't have to get up at 4:00 to workout.

Thank you r.jean. I appreciate the note. Wink

Hi there over43. You are doing so brilliantly, I was really awestruck at the thought of you exercising so early in the morning!! But I also am trying to exercise early, I swim before I teach, not as early as you, but it calms the mind as well as helps the body!!
Please tell me what an otter pop is, I know you love them, but in the uk never seen them. I am assuming is not an ice lolly made of otter Laughing

And here I thought getting up at 5:30 for 6am classes were bad! I guess I shouldn't complain!

Tessy - I just looked up Otter Pop, and it's one of those freezie icicle things that comes in the plastic tubes. It says it's sold in the US, but I had assumed it was a European thing, since I'm in the US and have never heard of them. Lol!

www.otterpops.com I am pretty sure most of us have seen these. I still call them otter pops, regardless of brand.

If the Soloflex is confusing, it is the iconic 80's home workout machine. Really, a home Nautilus Machine, but better.

I report today's food activities later. I have to balance finances, I sent the twins into Macy's with my debit card...

I played nine holes afterwork and carbed up three bite sized Snickers, a pair of Poptarts, and left over noodle surprise. When I returned home I had a protien shake.

over43-

Although I know you had a fail today, you still had me laughing! Noodle surprise- sounds like something I would like!

I like that you don't seem to dwell on the fail either- good for you.

I am even more interested in the malted milk you had the day before- do you buy this? Do you make this? Sounds delish.

Worth it

My wife makes home-made chocolate milk mix. I put it in the Nutri Bullet and it tastes like a malted shake. I guess she found the recipe on Pintrest.



Success!

Breakfast: ham and cheese croissant, potato things

Lunch: gyro, half a medium bag of fries, handful of Fritos, diet Dr. Pepper

Dinner: two fork fulls of noodle surprise, protein shake with banana.

AM workout: Roman chair sit ups, incline bench press, pull downs, military press, triceps pushdown, squats.

Success!

Lunch: left over Thai chicken rice noodles, yogurt

Dinner: mashed potatoes, short ribs, tomato/cucumber, watermelon

See you all tomorrow

I've experimented with early morning workouts, and I always ended up feeling extra tired by the early afternoon. Kudos to people who can get them done first thing in the morning! Nice job on all of the green days.

Great job on the success and the AM workout! I am dreading the winter this year - in NYC, we're supposed to have significantly more snow than normal - even worse than the really bad winter we had last year, ack!

Thank you for the comments. Sorry about the NYC winter this year. The Tetons are supposed to be dry and colder than normal.

September 10, 2014

Work party tonight, no sense of not enjoying myself socially.

Success!

I have started working 11 hour days. It has kind of muffed me up. Today about 4:00 PM I started feeling like crud, so I remebered the milk. It worked. I made it. Unfortunately I am heading to Phoenix Saturday for "harvest" break. In laws. I don't think there is enough Clonazepam in the world to get me through this. Next week will suck. S week.

Today's Soloflex workout:

September 25, 2014

Body curls
Incline Press
Behind neck pulldowns
Seated military press
Tricep push downs
Squats

My weekly conditioning with vigorous matches of Bocce turned into touch football today. I will be sticking to the Bocce in the future.

Everyone have a good evening.

Great job with the milk and white knuckling through today. I always feel the most successful when I make it through a day where I just really wanted to give in the whole day. You did it!

Sorry to hear about next week - you'll make it through. An S Week sounds like it will be much deserved. Focus on enjoying the goodies you'll be having, and hopefully that will make the week less stressful. Good luck!

Thanks. Upon further review my EKG and blood enzyme tests went so well I do not need a stress test. Go figure. That is the last time I have chest pains. Wink

I was a flunky Monday, but yesterday was a success. Three meals and a post workout protein shake.

Yesterday's Soloflex workout must have been epic, I started feeling like crap by early afternoon. I am not sure what causes that, but I have not felt like that since switching from Nautilus to Soloflex and reducing the intensity. Which is not to say high intensity, slow rep strength training does not work, in my case, it seems to work to well?

Success!

Three meals. A Coke with dinner, but it tasted great!

PM Soloflex workout. I hope I am not as sore as I was on Monday.

Tomorrow is Friday, Soloflex Saturday.

Thank you Eschano. Had a twinge tonight on the way home. Maybe stress...

Today was a fail. Had a Twix down my pie hole before I realized I had unwrapped it. Five AM Soloflex workout. It is nice being able to resistance train and not get to sore.

What a week this is turning into.

Wink

Failure

But, I am still Soloflex-ing regularly. It is paying off. Today I had to help unload an SUV full of soda cases. I did not get winded.

I seem to be eating less per meal, but, eating more per day. Failure there. Ran out of water tablets for a month. Started back on Wednesday. I have number oned since, constantly. Also dropped eight or nine pounds.

Still Soloflex-ing. Of all the Walmart, Coca Cola, and Tesla stock I have tried to buy over the years, the Soloflex is still my best investment.

Why thank you Ms. Lori, and a Happy Holiday season to you.

Still strength training. Some days I look slender, other days I look like pop n fresh.

I was going to do some kettlebell exercises today, until my wife caught me. I got the "sore back" lecture.

Until tomorrow...maybe.

Failure

I restarted neuroblockers today and that always ramps up my appetite until the dosage seems to "level" off. A bowl of Coco Crispies and two Poptarts is worth the two weeks I experimented not taking the Gabipenton. (sp)

Success Baby!

Wasn't even thinking about it. This morning I woke up and though, "Yesterday was the first S day in viele tag." (Sorry, I started Rosetta Stone.)

Breakfast was two biscuits and gravy and a mocha, lunch a sandwich/strawberries and a handful of cheese puffs, dinner - an anti-pasta salad.

I had an AM workout on the Soloflex, about a half hour.

See you tonight!

45 minutes of dodgeball with jr. high students. Followed by a choclate milk and a Vicodin chaser. I am going to rue the dodgeball tomorrow. Laughing

Until tomorrow.
