BOA - Week 7 Thursday

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Ok, the internet demons just ate my blog!! I'm not happy!

I'm feeling pretty accomplished at the moment. It's only lunch time and I've hit all of my "goals" for today. I did a 5 km run this morning (40 minutes & 560 calories), I've had two good servings of fruit and I have another waiting for afternoon snacktime. I've had three servings of vegetables. I've already had 1.5L of water. Another .5L should not be an issue. emoticon
It's a good day. Best part is, if I keep on track, I'll be within calorie range for the second day in a row.
OH! and I did a half an hour of strength training in BodyPump class! (un)fortunately, my client showed up and I had to bail early but I still got a good upper body workout and a ton of squats in. emoticon

Update: I had a total of 3Ls of water, 4 servings of fruit and 3 servings of vegetables yesterday. I also ate Pringles and earned myself a nasty case of cramps and heartburn. They're officially off my list. My calories for the day 2238. That's 268 over. Bleh.

Time for me

Wednesday, October 29, 2008


Today I used the gift certificate that the girls from my last HM clinic gave me and got a manicure and a pedicure. It was awesome! I also had my eyebrows waxed and tinted. emoticon Now I'm feeling all purty and stuff. My photos are set for this coming Saturday so I needed to ready myself. I still don't feel ready LOL but I think it's the nerves talking.
Or it could be that I haven't been feeling good about what I've been eating these past two days. I don't know where the impulsiveness is coming from but it has to stop.

Monday:
Fruit 4, Veggies 3, Water 2.5L Calories consumed 2289 (319 over)
Cardio/Strength - none
Tuesday:
Fruit 2, Veggies 2, Water 2.0L Calories consumed 2239 (269 over)
Cardio/Strength - 39 minute (4k) walk - burned 163 calories

Plan of attack for Wednesday: Run during downtime @ work. Do the circuit twice. Three servings each of fruits and veggies.

Battle of Alberta - Week 7!!

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

Good news and bad news for this weeks weigh-in. I'm at 123.5 which means no change from last week (good) but that's one pound more than the first day of the challenge (bad).

I plan to fix this fluctuation train that I'm on. I joined a Boot Camp at work yesterday. Three mornings a week for six weeks. We'll take measurements, etc on Sunday. Pretty excited. Although, I have to admit, having Chas as a trainer scares the heck out of me. (in a good way)

My challenges for this week are:
Nutrition: Water 2L+ Fruit (at least) 3 Vegetables (at least) 3
Cardio: At LEAST 300 minutes this week. That's an hour a day for five days and two rest days.
Strength: Focus is on abs this week - crunches, obliques, planks and boat pose - one minute of each

My personal goals this week are:
-to run 3 times (after I walk with the walking part of my HM clinic)
-do the ST circuit at least twice
-stay within calories 5/7 days
AND do all that other stuff.

I have a new goal!

Thursday, October 23, 2008

I want to run a half marathon in each of Canada's provinces and territories. I just spent the last half hour researching races and have found at least one option for each province/territory.
Ontario - Niagra Falls - October
PEI - Stratford - October
New Brunswick - St. John - September
Newfoundland - St. John's - September
Nova Scotia - Halifax - May
Quebec - Quebec City - May
Manitoba - Winnipeg - June
Saskatoon - Regina - September
British Columbia - Victoria, Penticton or Langley (May)
Northwest Territories - Yellowknife - August
Yukon - Yukon River Trail - August
Nunavut - Northern (Half) Marathon - July

It's going to take 3 or 4 years, since a lot of them happen in the same months, but it WILL be done! I guess I could skip BC, AB and NS but I figure, new goal... those don't count. Now all I have to do is get Glen and the kids on board.
