    Thank you. You too. It was a good deal on the TV, but I am not in the market for a TV. Especially that size, I think the rooms in my house are too small for a tv that large.

    Day #302 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #32 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 19,131; 333 day average: 13,623

    Sleep yesterday: 7.07 (deep:.24; light: 4.33; rem: 2.10)


    Sat -11/30/19. chest; ab training; 80 treadmill (65 before lifting; 15 after lifting - all together about 3/4 running slowly, 1/4 walking). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 28/30. I reached one goal, I reached 15K steps a day (including today) everyday in November. No food month was a success also. I did buy one banana, and (3) 2 liter bottles of diet Coke. That was my only food purchase for the entire month. The diet coke was for Thanksgiving. I went to my sister's house, and they didn't have a drop of soda in their house. :confused: I can't drink alcohol, since I take a medication (methotrexate), and no drinking of alcohol while on that drug is permitted. So what was I supposed to drink? I walked to a Walgreen's not far from their house, and bought Diet Coke. That was the least food I ever bought in a month. For the food, I am planning on continuing the "no food buy month", for at least until the end of December. The third goal of keeping calories under 3K, was a failure, since they probably will average about 3,250 after today. The extra 250 a day doesn't sound like a lot, but for 30 days that is 7,500 calories. But sad to say, it was an improvement over October. :o Usually I just weigh myself once a week, in December I am going to try weighing myself everyday. Maybe this will make me more disciplined in regards to calorie consumption.

    Mouse update: 1 dead mouse in the trap in the attic (a few days ago). I heard no noise after, so I am hoping that was the last. But I wouldn't bet on it.

    Day #303 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #33 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 22,951; 334 day average: 13,623

    Sleep yesterday: 5.10 (deep:.00; light: 3.09; rem: 2.01)

    Sun -12/01/19. back training; 60 elliptical; 80 treadmill (65 before lifting; 15 after lifting - mostly walking). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 1/1. Somehow the activity tracker got messed up today. While I was on the elliptical I looked at the steps on the watch soon after I started, and the steps didn't show on the watch. I thought I would be able to see the step count on the phone, but no such luck. Somehow the settings got changed, after I was able to change the setting back to the way they were on the phone, but the steps on the elliptical were lost. The phone was in my locker while I was working out, and I had thought the settings for the watch can only be changed through the App on the phone, so it is mystery to me how the settings got changed. I was going to estimate 5K, since normally an hour on the elliptical is about 6K steps, but I reached 15K without the elliptical steps so I will leave those steps off. I was again at the gym forever today, cardio: 140 + sauna: 30 = 170 minutes, that is almost 3 hours, not including lifting. Most likely tomorrow will be a rest day, since it is snowing / raining, and the roads are supposed to be icy. Today I reached workout #300 for 2019 (yes, I track everything). It might be due to my accounting background, or maybe I have OCD.:nod: Reaching 300 is a goal, so now I can take the rest of the month off from working out.:lol:

    Day #304 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #34 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 15,186; 335 day average: 13,667 (corrected addition error)

    Sleep yesterday: (deep: ; light: ; rem: ) - not available, I took off watch to recharge, I didn't put it back on until this morning.

    Mon -12/02/19. rest day. m-t-d workouts: 1/2. I could have worked out today, since there was no snow accumulation, and I was up, but I had it in my mind already I was taking a rest day, so that is what I did. I think I needed the rest anyway. There is supposed to be some accumulation tonight, but I hope to workout tomorrow. Maybe there will be some snow shoveling tonight in my future. I walked to the bus stop from my house, and got to NYC early, and walked before I got to my office. I have about 7K steps now, and probably will accumulate another 3K by the end of the day. Nutrition started off poorly for the month. Now that I am now back to work, I will have less access to food during the day. Maybe that will help.

    Day #305 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #35 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 10,262; 336 day average: 13,657

    Sleep yesterday: 6.22 (deep: 0.00; light: 4.26; rem: 1.56)

    Tues -12/03/19. shoulders; triceps; 10 treadmill (warm up before lifting). Sauna: 25 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 2/3. My step streak of 15K+ days of 31 days came to an end yesterday. My goal for December is to average at least 15K a day for the month. Didn't feel like working out this morning, I took the lesser of two evils, and lifted this morning. I actually had a pretty good workout, so I am glad I went. Even though I got to the gym slightly late, and spend 25 minutes in the sauna (5 more than planned), I drove to the park & ride, and there were spots. I suspected due to yesterday's bad weather, people might work from home, or they have days to use by the end of the year. On a normal day, all the spots are taken by 6:50 am, and I got there at 7:35. I thought I would get to NY about 20 minutes late today, but I was in my office by 8:50. Still can't get a good handle on my nutrition. I have been really hungry lately. Tomorrow - abbreviated chest training & cardio.

    Sleep yesterday: 4.26 (deep: .21; light: 3.04; rem: 1.01) (I think I slept about 2 hours more)

    Weds -12/04/19. chest; abs; 10 treadmill (warm up before lifting). Sauna: 25 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 3/4. I did 5 exercises, flat bench press, incline bench press, Freemotion machine fly, peck deck, incline chest press. More or less, 5 sets of 10. Abs 5 x 55 cable crunches (95lbs). Flat bench was weak today, other exercises were good. No cardio, except the 10 minute warm up. Tomorrow - back training.

    Day #307 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #37 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 10,666; 338 day average: 13,655

    Sleep yesterday: 6.33 (deep: .14; light: 3.43; rem: 2.36)

    Thurs -12/05/19. back training; 10 treadmill (warm up before lifting). Sauna: 25 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 4/5. I did 9 exercises. Finally, I no longer do assisted chin ups. Don't need the assist anymore.:) Pull ups are a different story, since my grip is more of an issue, due to joint damage from arthritis. But I hope to be able do those non assisted eventually also. Again, when I woke up, I was thinking maybe I need a rest day more than a training day. I have to overcome that way of thinking, since I could think like that everyday, and never workout again. Off to a poor start with the steps. 2 days so far under 15K. November worked out well, it was my highest step month of the year, 530K steps, for comparison, October was 374K, and there was one additional day in October. I should have had the same goal as November, 15K per day, not to average 15K. At the end of the month, I probably will need to walk 30K a day just to average 15K the way things are going. Tomorrow - leg training.

    Thank you. It has always been a goal for me to do unassisted pull ups, while I still can't do that, chin ups are a close second.


    Day #308 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #38 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 15,561; 339 day average: 13,661

    Sleep yesterday: (deep: .; light: .; rem: .) took off to charge, didn't put it on until this morning.

    Friday -12/06/19. leg; ab training; 10 treadmill (warm up before lifting). Sauna: 25 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 5/6. Today I couldn't find the box to do the box squats, so did squats without the box. Using the box was helpful, since now I am able to squat lower then I had been doing before I started using the box. That is "low for me". I can't squat deep like a normal person. Even if I were to squat without a barbell on my back, I can't squat deep. Maybe it has something to do with my bone structure or arthritis, I don't know. I practiced and practiced without a bar, and I can't do it. Later as I am doing leg presses, all of a sudden, the box reappears.:confused: Having my "sauna watch" break turned out to be a good thing. Now without a watch, the time in the sauna flies by. The first 10 minutes used to go fast, then I kept looking at my watch. Now, I go in, and when I finally get up to check the time, 20 minutes has passed. TGIF.

    Day #309 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #39 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 16,511; 339 day average: 13,669
    Sleep yesterday: 9.10 (deep: 1.00; light: 5.25 rem:2.45)

    Sat -12/07/19. chest; ab training; 65 treadmill (before lifting 5.22 miles). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 6/7. I woke up early, my plan was to get to the gym when it opens at 8:00 am. Didn't get there until about 1:30 pm. The cardio part I felt good, but lifting was meh. It wasn't that I put too much effort into the cardio, I just felt weak today. At least I reached 15K steps while at the gym. I wrote at the start of December that I was going to weigh myself everyday. I am stopping. I don't like it, hydration plays too big a part in weight, and I get disappointed on the scale when I expect to see a loss, but instead gain weight. Going back to once a week. I weigh myself and take measurements on Sundays (to keep my nutrition in check on Saturday). I hope in 2020 to start taking photo's at least once a week like I did when I started. Photo's and measurements give a better indication of progress (or lack of progress) than the scale. Tomorrow - back training.

    I still weigh myself almost every day and agree that hydration plays a noticeable factor, just as water retention from too much sodium, at least for me.

    As for the lifting, off days happen, but knowing you I'm confident your next session will be fine.

    Yes, today was a good example. No more weighing myself daily, I can't take the heartbreak of the scale. :)


    Day #310 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #40 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 16,452; 340 day average: 13,677
    Sleep yesterday: 8.59 (deep: 1.12; light: 6.10 rem:1.37)

    Sun -12/08/19. back; ab training; 75 treadmill (before lifting 5.79 miles). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 7/8. I was killing it today at the gym, I know, because someone said to me "man, you are killing it today".:lol: I did have an excellent workout, even though I told myself, only 10 minutes on the treadmill today, and somehow that morphed into 75 minutes. But at least I have already 14K steps. I think I had a good workout, because yesterday I ate a whole container of caramel. that was about 1,400 calories, and over 200 grams carbs. It wasn't the typical Kraft caramel square candy, it sort of was a container of sort of sticky salty caramel, you ate with a small spoon. Probably it was to put on ice cream. And I didn't even really like eating it, but that didn't stop me from eating the whole container. :o I have to go home and rake and bag leaves. I need to get it done today, though there are still leaves on the oak trees, so it will eventually need to be done again. Tomorrow - probably just cardio.

    Thank you.

    Day #312 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)
    Day #42 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps Sunday: 19,386; 341 day average: 13,694
    Steps yesterday: 15,780; 342 day average: 13,700

    Sleep Sunday: 7.01 (deep: .36; light: 3.12 rem:3.13)
    Sleep yesterday: 7.35 (deep: .40; light: 5.19 rem:1.36)

    Mon -12/09/19. 90 treadmill. Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 8/9.

    Tues -12/10/19. shoulders; triceps; 10 elliptical (before lifting warm up). Sauna: 20 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 9/10. I was thinking when I was driving to the gym I would just do 60 minutes on the elliptical, skip the sauna, so I could get a spot in the park & ride. Changed my mind after 10 minutes on the elliptical, and had a pretty good lifting session. Yesterday I went to the doctor, because the last time they renewed my blood pressure medication, they wrote on the container, will not refill without seeing the doctor. My blood pressure there was 116/60. While there they took a blood test for the A1C, cholesterol, and glucose. I asked the doctor about a pain I got a few times on the left side just above my stomach when getting up from a chair (and once it just came on) that lasted 10 minutes. He said it was most likely a muscle strain, but I never got it during exercise? I asked him if I should start seeing a cardiologist (my father had a first heart attack younger than my current age). He said no, as long as my cholesterol stays low, blood pressure is good, and I have no issues. I didn't really like that answer, since I could have issues that I am unaware of. Many die instantly from a first heart attack, without any prior symptoms. So I am going to see one anyway in January. At the very least, I want to get one of those heart scan's, that shows the amount of calcium in the arteries. Today will be a challenge to get 15K steps. I only have 5K now, I am not walking at lunch. By the time I walk to the bus terminal, then walk to my car, I will probably have 7-8 K. 7K after work is a lot of walking. Tomorrow - chest training (abbreviated), and cardio.

    Weds -12/11/19. chest (abbreviated version); 15 treadmill (before lifting warm up); 30 elliptical (after lifting). Sauna: 25 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 10/11. Almost took a rest day, with all the snow talk last night, but nothing accumulated on the street, so I decided to go to the gym. Tomorrow - back training. I walked in the mall last night after work, since it was raining outside. I got to 10K steps, and decided to call it quits. Today I already have 9K, so I should be able to reach 15K. My average for the 10 days so far in December is a little under 15K.

    Thurs -12/12/19. 60 elliptical; 65 treadmill (cardio before lifting), back training (abbreviated). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 11/12. No work today, my uncle passed away on Monday, and today was the funeral. He was in the army during WWII, he spent the war in the US, since the war ended as he was training (he would have been shipped to the Pacific). My uncle lived a full life, he had 4 kids, 8 grandchildren, and 2 great grand children, and he will be missed. It also was good that he was able to live in his house right until the end, and was in good health until a few months ago. After the funeral, I went to my cousins house who was hosting a lunch for those who attended the funeral. It is good to see relatives I don't normally see, but it is sad for the reason we were gathered. I ate foods I would not normally eat (foods that contain gluten), and I can already feel the affect on my gastro issues (I was surprised how immediate the affect was). I worked out before the funeral, since working out helps me alleviate stress, and I didn't think I would reach step goal without working out today. Normally on back day, I would do 9-10 exercises, but today I cut down to 5 exercises. Lat pull down, chin ups, assisted pull ups, T-Bar row, pull down machine. Tomorrow I hope to train legs.

    Thank you.

    Day #315 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)

    Day #45 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 22,600; 346 day average: 13,725

    Sleep yesterday: 7.42 (deep: .00; light: 4.52; rem:2.50)

    Friday -12/13/19. leg; ab training; 15 treadmill (before lifting warm up). Sauna: 20 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 12/13. I got the results back from my blood test earlier in the week. Pretty good results, cholesterol 183 HDL 59; LDL 115. Triglycerides: 46. AIC 5.4 glucose 92. I started taking a statin to lower the cholesterol about 2 months ago. The total cholesterol before taking the statin was fine, but the LDL should be under 100 (for someone who has a family history of cardiac disease in their family), and mine was 130. I am always most concerned about the AIC & glucose, because my mother had a bad case of diabetes, and I always expect to find out that I have it any time I take a blood test. TGIF.

    Thank you.

    Day #316 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)

    Day #46 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps yesterday: 15,447; 347 day average: 13,730

    Sleep yesterday: 9.44 (deep: 4.31; light: 5.13; rem: .13)

    Sat -12/14/19. chest; abs, 65 treadmill (before lifting 5.21 miles). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 13/14. Sleep data looks fishy, I don't think I slept that much (but I will take it), but usually deep sleep is a lot less, and rem sleep is a lot more. I started off thinking I wouldn't spend too much time on the treadmill, but I felt pretty good running (on the parts I ran), and continued to get the step goal out of the way. When I walk to my car, I will reach 15K steps. No buy food month #2 is going good, today I ate my last can of tuna fish. :cry: This year I ate about 190 cans of tuna.:crazy: It is the first time in years I have no tuna cans in my house. I had plenty of times I had over 100 cans. But I still have a supply of canned salmon, and canned sardines, so I won't be starving.:) Even though it is hard to beat canned tuna for the high protein; low fat, and low calorie count, I am not buying tuna for a while, since it is high in mercury, and I want to de-mercurize myself by stop having tuna, and spending time in the sauna daily. When I do buy tuna again, it is going to be the Wegman's brand, it is the best tuna, each can is 6 ounces, and it like eating a whole piece of fish, a totally different experience than buying Bumble Bee or Starkist.

    Day #318 - No Buy Year (2/01/19-1/31/20)

    Day #48 - No Food Buy Month (started 10/29).

    Steps Saturday: 17,112; 348 day average: 13,740
    Steps yesterday: 11,331; 349 day average: 13,733

    Sleep Sunday: 8.06 (deep: 1.05; light: 4.31; rem: 2.24)
    Sleep yesterday: 5.19 (deep: .23; light: 2.55; rem: 2.01)

    Sun -12/15/19. back; abs, 27 treadmill (15 before lifting; 12 after lifting). Sauna: 30 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 14/15.

    Mon -12/16/19. 60 elliptical; 15 treadmill. Sauna: 20 minutes. m-t-d workouts: 15/16. After all this time I have been using the sauna, I bought Eucalyptus essential oil, and today was the first time I used it. I mixed a few drops with a little water, and poured the water on to the hot stones. Someone was there before me, and I asked him if he was okay with me pouring the Eucalyptus oil on the stones, he didn't mind. He said it smelled good. I think I put too much oil, the smell was kind of strong. Next time I will use less oil. It smells nice, anything would be an improvement over the smell of sweat. I also bought Peppermint oil. I am getting used to the smell of Eucalyptus oil and Peppermint oil, since some guy who also uses the sauna frequently on weekday mornings, alternates between Peppermint and Eucalyptus oil. I need my own supply when he doesn't show up. I also started to wear flip flops in the sauna and shower. During the week, usually the amount of people using the sauna is sparse, and I get there early, so I don't have to step in other peoples sweat. On the weekends the sauna gets much more use, and it is kind of gross to step into someones puddle of sweat with my bare feet. :barf: Tomorrow is a rest day, or training shoulders. Hope to get back on track today with nutrition.
