    Weight was down to 135 over the weekend. i did nothing but sit on my butt for Friday and Sat. Went to hapkido on Sunday and for a short walk with mom. I managed to hit my foot during the class, and it just felt a bit off during the day, but before going to bed it hurt like hell, I could barely walk on it. Iced it, took a couple of IBs and slept with it propped on a pillow. Then, this morning it is fine (a bit tender). Fingers crossed it doesn't get worse by the evening, as I do not want to skip aikido!

    Mom lost another 10 lbs during the summer. I am so ashamed of myself, 15 lbs heavier than my mom! Idiotically, the scale shows her at 20% BF, while I sit at 22%. So much for 'no chronic cardio'! model. Mom hates any weight training and dropped the be your own gym in a few days. But she bikes and walks endlessly. And she eats a lot of carbs.

    Hurray, foot was Okay yesterday, so I had mu aikido class. Too bad we are moving to really complicated techniques, it was real brain twister and I am not happy at all about my performance.

    Dentist today to find out what is gonna happen to my tooth and then either KBs or tub/steam room while my baby is swimming depending on how I feel. A walk as well, of course.

    Ended up doing 35 or so min of KB tossing yesterday. Felt soooo alive! Too bad no time for steam room, but that's life. Baking stretch starts tomorrow. Oh, well.

    Cupcakes for the before and after school care and cake baking tomorrow after work (maybe I can fit in a swim before plunging in?), then decorating the cake on Friday (gotta collect the dahlias/gladioli bulbs as well & hopefully fit in a bit of lifting). Then, on Sunday gotta bake cookies for charity sale #1 and for mom to take back with her.

    Aikido yesterday. Was really tired and barely made myself go (the usual, I should do what do not suck at, or at least not in public). But the companionship of the class was very uplifting.

    I still feel very tight and not limber, which makes my back pain worse. Today I will have to start a more invested stretching regimen. Mom wants me to show her the stretches I do for the back so that's a given.

    I had an eye-roll this morning because I gained a pound overnight (up to 135.9). And here I was hoping I was losing (135 yesterday very early in the night). Oh, well. I seem to be hungrier yesterday so probably ate too much to lose.

    Anyway, this morning caught myself being wrapped up in really feeling for Elizabeth Woodville. (Reading Blood Sisters) As much as Richard was sympathetic in some ways, I still feel for EW.

    Baking starts in 10 or so hours. Bracing!

    Apparently it was a PMS pain. Friday, I baked all day on my feet and went for ~ 1 or so walking. Only walking and 30 min elliptical run (~ 400 cal intensity) on Sat and Sunday just walking, completely exhausted and fighting back pain. ~134 lbs over the weekend, not weighing till the period is done. Feeling much better though, hopefully can manage aikido after the dentist tonight!

    I did not give into the coffee craving, but by the afternoon my 3 hours of sleep stated to show, and after dropping mom off, dentist and picking my kiddo up, I skipped aikido. So just ~ 90 min walking, is all. I am withdrawing from the Nov-Dec aikido class. I just can't manage the 7-9 pm slot on a weeknight. Was doing fine today, apart from back pain fit from 2 to 3 am, but now it's 1 pm, and I start getting huge pressure headache. I was planning KBs during my kid's class, but might have to just run on an elliptical. Sooo tired of feeling unwell.

    Hey Leida, how are you doing? Last week you posted that you felt you'd hit rock bottom... I hope you're feeling better!

    Also, con grads on the period
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    - Ray Peat

    Heya, thank you for dropping by! I feel much better, but endless small aches are annoying!

    My headache went away after the pressure in the atmosphere got relieved by a HUGE downpour (most of which soaked me en route!). So I did KBs. Kind of 30 min of swinging session. Did not get to lunges, but I think it is a good start.

    Almost funny, but I managed to pull transverse when foam rolling afterwards. Makes it a bit difficult to breathe. Not too too bad. For me these small injuries indicate that i am still not recovered enough, but on another hand, if I do not exercise I get very stiff, and injure myself. Walking alone is not cutting it. I should try harder to stretch daily!!!

    I dropped aikido for Nov-Dec, and now do not feel like going at all. Hopefully by the evening this feeling will change! I can benefit from a stretch at least.

    Overall, I again contemplate living on a more normal human schedule with getting up at 5 am, not 4 am. Today I slept in till about this time, and made it to work by 6:45 am. Will see if working till almost 4 pm is Okay.

    The muscule was still sore yesterday, so I skipped aikido. I think it was the right thing to do, as I felt a bit better this morning and the weightwas at 134, so no crazy ups and downs. So, just walking yesterday. Today is my first day of working from home. I really enjoyed sleeping in, feeding my folks a breakfast and walking my kiddo to school. That's life, lol! Anyway, gotta go to my doctor's appt, to hear that there is absolutely nothing wrong with me and all that.
