Against my better judgement....

Thursday, April 02, 2009

I stepped on the scale this morning. Considering I'm hosting a party for Mother Nature this week, I thought that I'd GAIN weight. I weighed in on Monday with my group and I was at 127 and today, I'm at 125. I've lost 2 pounds!! Now I really have the motivation to keep at it. emoticon

  Most excellent, I feel some serious competition coming on! Nothing like seeing a loss to keep the motivation going!

Hello April!!

Thursday, April 02, 2009

Go ahead, ask me how my day was. Ok, so I woke up at 10 minutes to six and thought "my first appt. is at 8:30, I'm going back to sleep until 7:20". When I woke up at 7:20, my first thought was "NO, my first appt's @ 7:30". Believe it or not, I was at work on time. It was impressive, if I do say so myself.
After GL, I headed over to KF for a few hours. That was good, actually. I'm really liking being there this time. I feel appreciated. On the way home, I stopped at the 7-11 to have my lottery ticket checked. I matched 3 numbers on the Extra and won $50. I reinvested $10 and kept the rest for "fun".

Tonight's run was 9 Hills. It took me a little over an hour and ended up being over 10 kms. Considering how much uphill there was in the route, I'll take that time and enjoy it. Especially since I did it with ZERO pain.

Daily report -
Today, I consumed 1715 calories. (even with TWO treats, neither of them my ice cream sandwich)
I burned 594 calories doing a 1:11:08 hill (9) run that had a total distance of 10.13 kms.
I scored 8/6 for fruit and veggies.
I got a 8/8 for water.

That's day three!!! Hello willpower. Good to have you back :~)

March Be Gone - March 31st , 2009

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

March ended on a really good note. I've had two calorie days in a row that I can be proud of PLUS, I've already done enough cardio this week to BURN 1283 calories. My goal is 1800 a week.
Other good things that happened in March:
My goal of 60 miles per month - I achieved 60.52 miles!
I celebrated 5 years of being a runner on the 27th emoticon
I went back to work (casually) at KF thereby eliminating some of my financial stress.
BAD things about March:
I gained weight and now have to lose 8 pounds to make my 5% goal
My latest and last pair of Nike Perseus are dying and I have yet to find a good replacement shoe.
I had only three days that I achieved my calorie goals.
But enough about that... it's in the past and I cannot change anything about it now.
Today, I consumed 1779 calories.
I burned 279 during my 4.68 km run with Hughy. It took us 30 minutes. He's got to learn how to read his "mail" a lot faster.
I scored 8/6 for fruit and veggies.
I got a 8/8 for water.

I hope April is as much of a success as these past two days have been. I also hope that I can someday fit my mini ice cream sandwiches into my day. They're only 100 cals but I seem to enjoy everything else too much to save room. LOL. Poor me.

    I wish you luck for this new and bright month that is ahead of you!
I was naive this morning and thought it'd be a beautiful spring day... until I went outside and saw it was snowing - again! Quite the surprise... April Fool's weather on us? Hopefully your wish will be heard and winter will finally go away :)

  Yay! It sounds like you ended March on a very strong note and are looking forward to success in April :) My goal is to burn 1800 cals a week with cardio too seems like an achievable number.

Your little 100 cal ice cream sandwiches are just like my 100 cal soynut butter on a cracker obsession, lol, if I want it bad enough I will make room for it :)

Have a great first day of April!

A good start to the sixth week

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Yesterday I only went 41 calories over the top of my range. In my defense, if this had been last week I'd have been under because my range changed on Sunday when I adjusted my calories burned for the week. Oh well.
I had TEN servings of fruit and vegetables.
I drank TWO litres of water.
I did over 30 minutes of cardio.
I did two sets of the FitFix circuit.
In other words, I met all of my goals for the day. I can't wait to see what today brings.
