H - (Thurs 28th) Help yourself, (but not too much) - strategy to keep eating under control at the big meal (and post if you have time)



Alright, I don't have to worry about a huge turkey dinner BUT my daytime eating, especially salty foods, has been an issue for a couple of weeks. Today, I will only eat during "meal" times or, if I don't, I'll do 10 Jumping Jacks for every bite I take. (Thanks Suezette)

I'll add my CICO to this entry at the end of the day.

    That's a great strategy and a bit comical. Glad you have a sense of humor - good luck staying away from those salty snacks. Oh how delicious they can be!! emoticon

T - (Weds 27th) Trot your way through the day - what stress-relieving exercise can you do today to help with the stress of prep/travel/family/having kids home driving each other crazy, etc., etc.?


Even though Canadian Thanksgiving was last month, stress- relieving exercise is still a much required thing. This evening is Run Club. We'll run 4 kilometres. THAT always makes me feel better.

Three smiles for a Monday.

Monday, November 18, 2013

I saw deer on Nose Hill, watched the sun rise and, best of all, my coffee was delicious this morning.

Oh and, despite the windchill making it -20c, my bus started. I guess that's FOUR smiles.

  


Fitness Goals for 2014

Saturday, November 09, 2013

Reposting from Facebook for added accountability:

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am fond of saying, "if you put it on Facebook, you gotta do it". This is me putting my plan for 2014 on Facebook so I can't back out.

1. 02/2014 - Hypothermic Half Marathon
2. 06/2014 - Scotiabank Half Marathon
3. 07/2014 - Tour for Kids (cycling challenge)
4. 08/2014 - Loop the Lake Half Marathon
5. 10/2014 - Victoria Half Marathon


The issue I'm currently having is that I'm "only" running four half marathons. Not 12, like I tried to do this year, "just" 4. I'm already mourning the loss of the bling from the runs I'm not running. *sigh* Moving on.

My other goal is the "Tour for Kids". This will truly be a challenge for me. I'm not a cyclist, I've never even considered trying to be, BUT I love children and I will do anything physically possible to help make their lives better. To this end, I'm going to join a team of cyclists to raise money for "Camp Kindle". I like this fundraiser more than others that I've been a part of because 100% of the money raised goes to the charity. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT.

I took out my 2014 calendar today and wrote the training schedule on it. I'm using the Grand Fondo Banff program and, HOLY FRIG!, Im glad I bought cycling shorts, built a strong running and yoga habit and have a can do! attitude. Id be toast otherwise. Take a look:

I can do this!!
