Week 6 Challenges

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

Today begins week six of the 5% Challenge in LIC. This week I decided that we should all set our own goals. Here are mine:
~calorie range 6 out of 7 days
~strength train twice
~run four times
~water, fruit and veggies every day (8/3/3)
I'm still not completely sure when I'll fit in the fourth run or the second strength training day BUT these should be completely doable.

Daily stats for April 7: Calories 1877, Water 8, Fruit 3, Vegetables 3, Cardio/Strength - none

  


Goals

Friday, April 04, 2008


I love this quote about goals. And it's so true. I mean, how many of us are actually doing what we said we would do "when we grow up". Myself, I wanted to be a police officer.
Even with Spark, my goals have changed several times over the past (almost) two years. Lose, maintain, even gain. Sure I'm where I want to be now, but maybe in 6 months I'll rethink that, too. Regardless, I'm always striving and THAT, I think, is what is most important.

Tonight, I'm double dating with Kerry and going to the Juno cup. I sure do hope I can get some good photos of the "Rock Stars" playing hockey. Jim Cuddy, Aaron Lines, Shane Yellowbird & Tom Cochrane are playing just to name a few. Who can beat it? Sexy, talented, sweaty Canadian music artists.... *sigh* it's a good night to wear a bib. LOL

Words to live by

The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.

What's to love about Mondays?

Tuesday, April 01, 2008

It started out to be just another crazy Monday and ended up one of the best days of the year. Not only did I make this day two of a "within calories" streak but I landed my dream job. It's just part-time for now until we see if it's a good match but who knows where I could be in 6 months?

Last week was a good exercise week. I ran over 20 kms, went to a strength training class and took my first BodyFlow class at Goodlife. Omigosh, it hurts to sneeze today. My obliques are KILLING me!

This week it's
Monday ~my interview
Tuesday ~ Paul Brandt (FRONT ROW BABY!!)
Wednesday ~ 4 kms + 6 Hills
Thursday ~ 3 kms + 7 (more) kms
Friday ~ the Juno Cup!!!
Saturday ~ Pure Strength
Sunday ~ CBI Hustle for Hunger AND my first shift at my new part time job

This week's challenges in the 5% challenge are:
*Move at least 10 kms
*Strength train (full-body) twice
*Add 15 seconds to your three planks
*Blog at least three times

CW 123 no loss/no gain from last week - Yay me!

    Heh heh BodyFlow is like that, eh? Nice and serene, everyone at peace, calming lifting limbs in the air all zen-like....

And then BAM. The next day it feels like your core's been beaten with a baseball bat....

Congrats on the job at GoodLife - I have no doubt that you're going to be AWESOME at it!

Time to start practicing what I preach

Saturday, March 29, 2008

The past week has been HORRIBLE for calories in for me. Yesterday was over 2700, today over 3000. Crazy! So here's what I have to do: I have GOT to get my eating back under control OR I have to exercise enough to wear off the extra 1700 calories I've had in the past two days. LOL. It's going to be a tough weekend because you know that I will NOT accept a weight gain this week.
On the plus side, I have been eating my fruits & veggies, drinking my water and taking my multivitamin. And since last Sunday, I've run 3x for a total of 19 kms. That's some good in all this bad.
Bleh.
