Today's run was SO awesome! I felt great... took the hills like they weren't even there. The weather was perfect (albeit snowy) and the company was fantastic. I absolutely love running in the winter. Even when we have to dress like this.

    It was somewhere between -25 and -30 depending on whether the wind was blowing or not.

I slept ALL day today. I woke up long enough to eat and watch Ellen and maybe a few snippets of other shows and that's about it. I'll make up for it tomorrow. Bootcamp's at 7:15. If I have ANY energy after that, I'll do a short dreadmill run. emoticon

BOA - Week 8 Tuesday

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Our challenges for this week are:
Cardio: 10 kms. Walk, run, bike
Nutrition: 6 servings of fruits and vegetables
Water: get your 8 cups a day (2L)
Strength: full body workouts - twice

I slept in until 10:00 today. When I finally got up and at 'em, I spent the day with Logan watching a movie and then I gathered up the rest of them and headed out to Cochrane for ice cream. If I'm going to splurge, it's going to be the very best: McKay's!!
Tonight we had a turkey dinner. I didn't weigh/measure anything exactly but I think I have a reasonable eye for it by now. Hopefully, I stayed within my calorie range because I have to present my journal to Chas. Ugh... I love turkey but I hate (HATE) the turkey hangover. :~) I hope I can stay awake for Biggest Loser!

BOA - Week 8 Wednesday

Wednesday, November 05, 2008

Ugh - another early morning and another session of Boot Camp. Actually, I liked that part. I have to say, though, the sight of my own sweat dripping onto the gym floor was a little unnerving LOL. I HOPE that after six weeks of these classes, I'll have increased my upper body strength. I have got to learn how to do pushups. My limit is 10 per set and I need a good deal of rest between sets. I'm really poopered. And famished!
Oh and I'm so proud of myself!! I went into Superstore and all the Halloween candy is marked down... they had all my favourites and I WALKED AWAY!
Yay me!

    Sweating is a great thing! It's your body's cooling system kicking in! Not to mention is proves to me that you are staying well hydrated! Yay for drinking your water!

Personally, the feeling of getting a good sweat going is pretty exhillerating to me!

PS... congrats on walking away from those candies! I doubt I could have!

    Penny - I agree - good for you!
Sweat is a good thing - it shows you're working hard! Your accomplishments over the last 2 years just blow me away!
