Long Distance Week

Friday, November 24, 2006

Well, after being away from home Monday and Tuesday, I came back to rock some exercise distances. Wednesday evening I ran 4.25 miles. Last night, although I was tired and didn't want to go on the bike, once I got on there, I went farther than I've ever gone before 27km. The bike's tracker said there was 1000 calories burned. I always think that that is high, for whatever amount it gives me. But what are ya gonna do!! Better than no calories burned at all.

Christmas decorations are all up at work now. Looks so festive and pretty. I haven't started any preparations or shopping yet. Maybe this weekend... between hockey games! LOL, as if.

  


Question answered

Thursday, November 23, 2006

I posted my question in both the diet/nutrition and the exercise threads yesterday, and both came back with the answer "sodium". When I am away from home, I can't make my own food. What I eat, whether in a restaurant or at a friends' house, would usually have more sodium totals, as I don't cook with salt, nor do I put it on my food before eating. So that makes sense to me. Why didn't I think of that all by myself. Once again, Sparks has come through. And the weight gain, I'm alread down a pound and a half. It always goes quickly once I'm back home - so the salt answer makes sense to me.

  


Gone, but not forgotten

Wednesday, November 22, 2006

I was MIA from Sparks for the past couple of days. Gone to training for work, about three and a half hours from home. I ate very well, and picked great choices. I made sure to drink my water. I got on an elliptical machine and tried that - new experience as I've never done elliptical. I can feel it in my lower quad muscles for sure! All in all, the time away was spent in a very Spark-like manner. However, the scale this morning said an increase of 3.4 pounds since the last weigh-in. There is just something about that long drive that packs the weight on in a big way. It falls off generally pretty quickly, but I just can't figure out what it is. I thought it was water retention, as I usually take a large water bottle along. I didn't do that this time to see if that's what it is. So I can't even say that's the culprit.

  


Lazy day yesterday

Sunday, November 19, 2006

Got home from the Christmas party very late (3:00 am) so we slept in and I didn't exercise til after lunch. Hubby and I went for a nice drive through the country in the morning. Later in the afternoon, we watched our local university team play in the semi-finals (they won), barbequed for supper, and then watched a movie before turning in early! It sure was a nice way to relax and spend time together.

  


He Loves Me!!

Friday, November 17, 2006

Lately I've been noticing my hubby tells me he loves me "at least" once per day, more often than he used to. I do think he likes what's going on, even if he doesn't say so and often complains as I roll of bed early!!
