The good, the bad & the f'ugly

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Alright, the good: I have an interview at Goodlife on Monday. I had a quick run tonight with Hughy the WonderDog. Not as good as last week's but good nonetheless.
The bad: I haven't been in calorie range in FOUR days. I'm so mad at myself. And I know I shouldn't be so now ....
The f'ugly: I'm in a funk, a blue mood, whatever you call something that makes you so sad that you'll cry for no real reason and so angry that spilled chicken soup will send you over the edge. Not to mention the extra chips and chocolate that I've eaten in the last four days. I hate this. I have so many good things going on and this little black cloud over my head is ruining it all. I guess I need a good wind to blow it away.

Penny, I completely understand how you are feeling because I tend to be in the same spot more times than I would like to count. I just want you to know that I am here if you need to talk!!!

Try to concentrate on the good. You are a strong, healthy and wonderful lady.

Roughnecks Rock!

Sunday, March 09, 2008

I've become a fan of the NLL Calgary Roughnecks. I started watching them on tv this season and tonight (thanks to Kerry) I got to see them live. Holy wow lacrosse is a brutal sport. I think G & I will get season tickets next season though.

I was such a good Sparker today. Not only did I eat within my calorie range, including 6 servings for fruit and vegetables, AND drink plenty of water BUT I did an hour of aerobics and an hour of strength training. I'm pretty poopered tonight. Which reminds me, I'd better get to bed because I run in the morning and thanks to the silly time change I'm already losing an hour of sleep :~)

Springtime 5% Challenge

Wednesday, March 05, 2008

This is the first week and here are the challenges:
~Three 10 point upper body workouts + 100 crunches
~Three 10 point lower body workouts + 100 crunches
~Three 45 minute cardio workouts
~Stay within calorie range a minimum of 5 days

Yesterday I took the day off because on Sunday I did over three hours of cardio. Tonight, on the other hand, I spent over half an hour doing my strength training exercises. I realized that I need to a) not try to do pushups AFTER I've done all the other exercises and b) buy heavier weights.
I stayed within my calories today and (possibly) yesterday. I've decided that the $1 I put into savings each day that I don't go over will go towards something for my trip to Halifax. Maybe a pre-vacation spa day. :~)


Death by chocolate

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

I accidentally ate 12 chocolate covered macadamia nuts today. They were in the break room and I was reading and not paying attention and well, the rest is history. 690 calories! Needless to say, I am not within my calorie range today. That sucks.
I'm really bummed out tonight. I can't explain why but I'm in a definite funk and I can't seem to shake it. I should've worked out tonight but I didn't. Maybe it would have lifted my mood. At the very least, it would have erased some of the guilt brought on by the over-eating. *sigh* Maybe a good night's sleep will help.

    Just pick yourself back up, and work off those extra calories today!
I cannot believe how many calories are in 12 of those little things!! My goodness, I know to never indulge on those now, lol!!

Have a great day!

    You know I heard a story about how a little girl accidentally stuck candy up her nose. At least you accidentally put it in your mouth and not up your nose.

Another dollar in my piggy bank

Sunday, February 24, 2008

Doesn't sound like much but it means a lot more. For every day that I stay within my calories, I've been putting a dollar in the pig. Since the 4th of February, there have only been 3 days where he hasn't gotten fed. For someone that had been constantly going over, I think I'm doing rather well.

Today was another good day. I did an hour of cardio and an hour of strength training. I ate really well and I drank a LOT of water. In the morning, I'm getting up and going for a run. I'm really looking forward to it. Wednesday's run felt fantastic (even though we did hills) so I'm hoping for a repeat in Sunday's run. Fingers crossed.
