Week Seven, Day Five

Saturday, April 19, 2008


Plant Big Seeds - Tonight I went to the Centre Street Church for their fifth annual auction/concert. The music was provided by Paul Brandt, Shane Yellowbird, Carolynn Dawn Johnson, Aaron Lines, Jason McCoy and Johnny Reid. LOVED it. Didn't get the skateboard (for Logan) that I bid on but c'est la vie. It was so much fun.

Daily stats for April 16: Calories 2294 (way over), Water 9, Fruit 4, Vegetables 4, Cardio/Strength -3 km Tempo run. 17:56 (180 calories burned)
Daily stats for April 17: Calories 1608+ (probably just under. I had a wrap that I can't account for but it was all good things)Water 13, Fruit 3, Vegetables 2, Cardio/Strength - 4 kms Steady run 25:59 (247 calories burned) and 20 FitFix circuit @ GoodLife. 5 minutes on the elliptical & 6 minutes on the treadmill (warm up/cool down)
Daily stats for April 18: Calories 1592 (under but I'm full)., Water 8, Fruit 3, Vegetables 3, Cardio/Strength -Nothing. Unless you count cleaning snow off the car. FOUR times!

Tomorrow is my second Climb for Wilderness. Basically, this is where the Calgary Tower opens its stairwells to crazy people like myself who then PAY to climb the 802 stairs to the top of the tower. I signed up for multiple climbs. Hopefully, I don't hurt myself because a) I have to run 18 kms and b) work a five hour shift on Sunday. Maybe they'll let me sit down behind the desk. HA!
Night all!

  


Week Seven, Day Two

Wednesday, April 16, 2008


Well, I guess even the good guys lose every now and then. I KNOW they can pull it together and come out on top in this series. I just hope that they know it.

Tomorrow is a run night. I can't wait. It's only three kilometres with the clinic but I think that I'll add in some hills for my BHM training. Watch, it'll snow. Either way, I'm lacing up the runners and hitting the pathways. Through rain, sleet & snow and all that jazz.

Daily stats for April 15: Calories 1987, Water 8, Fruit 3, Vegetables 3, Cardio/Strength -Nothing. Worked all bleepin' day.

Week Seven, Day One

Tuesday, April 15, 2008

OMG, what a long day: KF from 8 til 5 and then GL from 6 til 9. I'm beat BUT I'm wide awake. I hate when that happens.
I set a few challenges for the girls in LIC this morning. I hope to achieve them myself this week.
I've got three small challenges this week:
1) Do at least 3 sets of the daily email exercise and 3 sets of the Exercise of the Day. Today are the "Dumbbell Squat with Calf Raise and Overhead Press" and the "Wide Leg Wall Sit with Calf Raises".
2) Eat well. Drink lots of water.
3) Get at least 210 minutes of cardio this week. (30 mins a day or however you want to break it up)
4) Strength train and stretch at least once. (full-body)


Daily stats for April 14: Calories 1973, Water 8, Fruit 4, Vegetables 3, Cardio/Strength -3 sets of the daily exercises as described above.
