Draglist's Journal, 25 Oct 14

OK, then! Saturday is my official weigh in day. Woke up at 207.0, down .6 from last night. Did 16:8 fasting and then an hour of weight lifting. I then did 30 minutes on the treadmill at various grades. I found a new setting on my treadmill after all these years that allows me to ramp up the intensity of the speed on the pre-selected workout patterns, so that's a lot of fun. Did not do HIIT today as my knees were still feeling it from last night's hour. After 30 minutes, I got to thinking that weights and 30 minutes of treadmill were enough. But I wanted my blue line back! I told myself that if I weighed in at 206.5, I could stop, but otherwise, I would do another 30 minutes. I stripped, hopped on the Tanita, and got... 206.6! Back to work! And I'm glad I did because when I stepped off again I got a beautiful 204.8 reading. For everyone who does 30 minutes on treadmills, I'm telling you that the second 30 minutes always produces MUCH more sweat (for me at least). After 30 minutes, my headband is damp, but squeezing it does not result in water coming out. After 60 minutes, I'm getting a good half a cup. Something to consider. Have a great weekend, everyone! It's 2pm and time to break the fast!

Thanks, Breco! Hi, Chris. It's a Pro-Form 680 LT. I got the darned thing on QVC or HSN, of all places. That was at least five or six years ago. It has held up amazingly well (knock on wood). And I was 340 when I started using it (40 lbs. above the maximum recommended weight).

I get the same sweat effect when I walk but it's my scrunchi that gets soaked and I have to dry out my hair before I can weigh in. There's no point in sweating if it stays on you lol.

Right, msbuggirl! I always try to grab a shower and then dry off REALLY well before weighing in! : )

Thanks, Jovial! Just got an unexpected dinner invitation, so don't know what the rest of the day has in store. I was going to eat a Quest bar at 4:30 and then dinner at 7. Put the Quest bar back to give myself a little more calorie cushion tonight.

I would love to get a treadmill. Got to save the money. I bought a stationary bike last year. =)

I really like mine, SKwhite. But my wife wants one of those half walking, half elliptical things the next time we buy. We will have to look at some to see what's the best.
