SP Bootcamp - Day two

Monday, January 05, 2009

Workout video - check
30 minutes cardio of my choice - check
eat at least 3 servings of fruit - check

I decided to leave the car at home today and walk back and forth to work. Then I took Hughy for a walk when I got home. I was able to get more than 30 minutes of good brisk walking in. I'm thinking that I'll do that everyday that I won't need the car after work.

I even managed to eat only 1943 calories!! AND (drum roll please) I drank 2L of water!!!

A very good day, indeed.


SP Bootcamp - Day one done

Monday, January 05, 2009

So, not one to refuse a challenge, I just finished the first workout video for the bootcamp. For a 10 minute cardio boost, it was pretty darn good. I think it even ridded me of the headache that's been bothering me for the last few hours (ETA, nope - still there - ouch). I also took a few "before" pictures. I don't have any stats, though. Tomorrow, I'll check those out. Today's lesson: don't eat the Heartland Slam at Denny's and then put on spandex. 2800 mgs of sodium makes you a LITTLE puffy. :~) It's all good.

Nutritionally, speaking today bit. I did have 6 servings of fruits and vegetables AND I drank about 2.5 litres of water BUT I can't say that I ate very well, overall. The Denny's lunch just killed my calories and everything else.
Physically, I did a 16km run and the Bootcamp video. I'm giving myself an "A" for effort there.
Bring on Day two!

Happy Birthday to me.

Thursday, December 25, 2008

Today is my 37th birthday. I can honestly say that I have never been more fit, more healthy than I am today. It's pretty awesome.

I'm not tracking anything that I eat today. I'm enjoying the day with my sons and I'm going to eat/do whatever I want. Tomorrow, I'm working for an hour or so and I will burn a minimum of 500 calories before/after I meet with my client(s). By the end of the week, I'll have made up for todays' fun and food. Won't be hard with a 16k run on the schedule for Sunday. emoticon

BOA - Week 12 Tuesday

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Well now, this has been a very interesting week so far. I've ended my relationship with my SO of 8+ years and I've actually been struggling to make the low end of my calorie range. I've been exercising as usual so on the plus side a) I'm not eating my feelings and b) I may actually lose a pound or two this week.
Let me qualify this by saying, I'm not at all hungry, I'm full. Which makes me wonder if I've been eating my feelings all along. I know that I've been unhappy for a while with how things have been going...... I never seemed to be able to get full. I think I've just had an epiphany. Weird.
Anyway, tomorrow is bootcamp, an IFlow class and 4 hill run. Chas "owes" me a 30 minute workout so she's practicing her new routine on me. Incidently, IFlow is featured in the latest Impact magazine. It's pretty cool. A whole workout that looks like what would happen if Tai Chi married a resistance band. :~) I'm pretty psyched. (does anyone say that anymore? LOL)

Oh! and I lost 1/2 pound last week. Whoohoo!

    Just realized that I haven't been following your blogs in awhile and wanted to say I'm sorry about the split from your significant other. It must be a difficult time for you and my thoughts are with you. I hope you still have a wonderful Christmas with your children and again, thank you so much for all you've done to help me reach my goal weight. You really inspired me when I started my weight loss journey and you continue to inspire me by your courage and your commitment to health during such a difficult time. You're a hero!

    Tai Chi + resistance band = WHY DIDN'T THEY THINK OF THIS BEFORE?
It sounds uber cool! I'd be psyched too!

I'm sorry about your emotional eating (under calories) due to your current situation. It is possible that you've been eating too much all along (I hear Ghandi did a similar experiment on himself!) You might be very pleasantly surprised, and discovered yet another epiphany about your body!!!

All the best, Penny!

    Just taking some time to catch up tonight, and see your blog. Iflow sounds like something I'd enjoy. I'm glad you aren't eating your feelings, but make sure you are getting the right stuff, even if you're below. I read on Facebook that you might be getting eggs & baking all weekend in the cold. Rock on!

    I saw your updated status on Facebook.... Emotional eating can be very insidious - a bit here, a bit there for no apparent reason, it adds up, eh?

Iflow sounds great although my hyperactive imagination has me conjuring all sorts of weird tai chi/resistance band offspring... Is this a GoodLife thing? And WTG on the weightloss!
