September 11 Resolutions

Monday, September 11, 2006

Ok first of all, here's what I accomplished from last week's list:
- drink 12 cups of water per day
- eat 5 servings of F & V (total) per day

I did do a 11 km run this morning, so I kind of did the 2 x 5 kms run I suppose.

I'm going to cut back this week on the water to 10 cups but otherwise I am going to keep:
- go to Yoga once
- run at least five kms twice
- ride my bike once
- go to the gym once
- eat five servings of fruit and vegetables (total) per day
- go for a 30 minute walk three times

  


September 4th resolutions

Tuesday, September 05, 2006

This week I resolve to:
- do 30 mins of Cardio per day
- drink 12 cups of water per day
- go to Yoga once
- run at least five kms twice
- ride my bike once
- go to the gym once
- eat five servings of fruit and vegetables per day

I just got home from camping and, despite my best efforts, I went over my calories this weekend. ARGH! Hopefully, the hour and a half of walking helped.

OK, here's the plan for tomorrow:

Sunday, August 27, 2006

1) pick up my year membership for Calgary Parks & Rec.
2) sign up for "Buns & Bellies", sounds like a silly name but it's going to focus on my trouble zones among other things. I know that the scheduled class time and paying for it will make commit to it whole-heartedly.

I signed up to run a 10km "race" on September 10th. It's down at Bowness park and supports Kidsport. Which is cool.
I'm also signed up for Run for the Cure. That one is on October 1.

So now I have to find a run for November.

  


An awesome day

Sunday, August 20, 2006

Today I met up with 5 other SP ladies and walked from Bowness Park to Edworthy. It's such a beautiful pathway that you almost forget you're a) in the city and b) excercising. The (b) part comes to a halt when you walk up the first hill. EGADS! Two hours and almost 5 and a half miles later I was very happy to sit down and munch on my veggie snacks that I brought with.
Then came the hard part. In a "brave little toaster" moment, I decided a couple days ago to bike back to Bowness. You know, leave the bike at Edworthy so I wouldn't have to get anyone to pick me up, etc. at the end. Yeh. Great idea. Except for these two things: I haven't riden my bike since I did the Ride for Heart in June of 2004 and the route is full of fricken fracken hills. All good when you're going down them... not so fun when you're going up. Slow & steady really saved my buttocks today.
At any rate, the blister on my foot (my fault) was TOTALLY worth meeting with and talking to the lovely ladies I spent two hours with today. No doubt about it.

  


Back to Basics

Sunday, August 06, 2006

I went to Yoga for the first time in a year today. It was amazingly difficult for someone who used to do tree pose while brushing their teeth.
I also double checked my calories for last week. Sadly, I'd gone over 5/7 days. Definitely not good.
So this week it'll be back to pre-measuring everything that I eat. More Running. More Yoga. More good things.

    Ditto Penny - going on a walk with strangers is waayyyy outside my comfort zone - you'd never guess that by how much I blatter on - but I'm basically an introvert and find meeting new people stressful. I'm so glad I went. I have no goals of ever running - but I do have a book called "Where locals hike in the Canadian Rockies" and I would love to do each and every one of those. Walking with you guys is a small start on that.
