Week Six, Day Four

Friday, April 11, 2008

Okay so I somehow missed writing yesterday. My mind just hasn't been able to focus on ONE thing lately, it's gotta be everywhere at once. No wonder my youngest has focus issues of his own, it's hereditary. :~)
It snowed A LOT here in Calgary today. My 12 minute drive to work took me over an hour and most of that time I spent at a dead stop. Bleh. When I finally did get to work, my chosen parking spot had about a foot of snow in it and my van got stuck 3/4 in. Left it that way until the end of the day... what else could I do?
Had a great run with the group tonight. I can tell that 3 kms isn't enough for most of them. I love rookie half marathoners. They always want to push, push, push.
Well, it's late and now my entry will probably show up on the 11th .... oh well.

Week Six, Day Two

Wednesday, April 09, 2008

This morning my son's temperature was was over 100 again. (2nd day) Thankfully, my mom lives close and was able to come relieve me so I could go to work for 11. Still, after not being there for a day and a half, I was not really looking forward to seeing my desk. It was, as I imagined, depressing. I can't believe the difference in the way I feel going to my new PT job versus my old FT job. And I've only worked at my new job for 8 hours. This can't be a good sign.
Perks to my new job: Tanning, free membership, working out is part of my job description. HAHA! life. is. good.

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.

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.
