SP Bootcamp - Day four

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

Day four workout video - done
30 minutes cardio of my choice - running & done :~)
eat at least 3 servings of vegetables - done


Calories - (1620-1970) 2131
Water - 2L
Fruits/Vegs - 2/4
Cardio - 73 minutes of running/walking

I'm in the "M" stage of PMS and I want to eat everything that isn't nailed down. My food tracker reflects that. I ate really well today with the exception of the candy. Tomorrow should be more controlled. I hope.

  


SP Bootcamp - Day three

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

Workout video - check
30 minutes cardio of my choice - check
2 sets (10-15) of close arm pushups - check (2 x 15)

I had two interviews to go to today and didn't go to either. I think it's for the best tho'. Neither were positions that I really wanted, I just need the work to round out what I'm not making at the gym. I talked to my boss today and she's going to help as much as she can. I'm also getting some CSR hours. I spent this afternoon on calgaryjobshop.ca, picked companies in my area, AND that I'd enjoy working with, and sent out some more resumes. FTR, I have another interview tomorrow morning. I'm not going to that either. Again, it's just not what I want.

Calories - I went over. 2,073 instead of 1970 (dangit)
Water - finishing up the last two glasses now
Fruits/Vegs - 4/3
Cardio - 54 minute walk with the HM clinic. (5.6 kms) 224 calories burned

    Cassie, my HM clinic includes walkers AND runners this time. I train with the walkers on Tuesdays, hang out with both on Wednesdays and run with the runners on Sundays. I can't mess with my training too much but, at the same time, I need to pay attention to everyone. Keep everyone having fun, etc.

    Are you doing a walking clinic this time? I'm glad you feel empowered about which interviews to accept, and which to decline. No desparation - atta girl!

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
