Seven hours of solid sleep with no wide-awake episodes and vivid dreaming. I dreamed I was a movie critic and in another episode, I was trying to sell cords of wood. Eight minutes of the Air Walk Trainer first thing in the morning to burn off glycogen. High of 85 today but sticky. I hope the rain will clear out some of the humidity.

Omron body fat monitor: 27, BMI: 19.3

Twelve minutes of stretching in bed. Forty-five minutes of eight great exercises for posture, neck and trunk, balance, and flexibility from "Age-Defying Fitness." Cardio: 50 minutes on the Air Walk Trainer, 2,867 steps.

I went through Amazon Prime Pantry, preparing another order and looking for low sodium versions of food. I would have had to double up on some supplies in order to fill the box. I was able to fill up the box petty easily the last time because I ordered a lot of liquids. This time, I would have had to order $140 worth of stuff before filling the box so I decided to hold off. I'm cutting out the La Croix sparkling water because I don't think carbonation is that good for you, even without sugar. I'm switching to powdered Slim Fast, partly because I'm going to mix it with milk at home, partly because I want to use up what I have. I'm going to start using Relay foods because Amazon Prime Pantry is too much All-American processed food. However, I'm not going with Relay until I clear out some more of the stocks I have in the pantry, freezer and fridge.

I made some progress in decluttering the bedroom. Took a half hour nap.

I ordered an EatSmart bathroom scale which measures body fat, muscle, bone, and water mass. We'll see how the results compare to the Omron body fat monitor. I hope to monitor muscle mass and get it up as I have monitored body fat and lowered it. I also ordered an interlocking anti-fatigue EVA foam floor mat for $15.12. I figure I can use it with the rowing machine once I get enough room to assign its own space or I can use it to add some more cushion to the anti-fatigue mat I'm using with the standing desk, which isn't that thick.

I was jonesing for a Simple Truth Organic meatless patty grilled on the Pizzaz Plus for a snack - tasty with a pat of Smart Balance butter substitute - but it would have put me over 1,500 mg sodium for the day. I wasn't hungry anyway. I guess I'll save it for another day.

Why happiness isn't guaranteed after weight loss. - Science of Us

Seven hours of solid sleep with no wide-awake episodes and vivid dreaming. Eight minutes of the Air Walk Trainer first thing in the morning to burn off glycogen. I started on the second season of Grimm after staying up late last night to watch the season finale of the first season.

Omron body fat monitor: 27.1, BMI: 19.3. My mini-goal is to hit 25 and stay there for a while. My long term goal is to hit the 13-17 range for men suggested by the AARP BMI calculator. I hope to get the EatSmart scale by next week and we'll see what those numbers are.

Today is a down day (500 calories) on the Alternate-Day Diet and a strength training day. No back tension today, thank goodness. I started throwing out salt packets today.

Nine minutes of stretching in bed. Three wall slides (planks for your legs), one minute each. Twenty-four minutes of leg-strengthening exercises with 1 1/4 pound ankle weights on the mat, two sets of 10 reps each: hip abductions, leg and knee raises, 28 minutes of leg-strengthening exercise with ankle weights on and around a chair, two sets of 10 reps each: hip abductions, leg, knee, and toes raises. Forty-five minutes of the dumbbell whole body conditioning program, three sets of 10 reps each with six-pound weights. Cardio: 45 minutes on the Air Walk Trainer.
