30 Celsius? Are you kidding me?

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Sticking to the plan may kill me this week. Calgary seems to be heating up this summer. It just makes me want September to be here NOW. I'm longing for the cooler temperatures. BUT, I will continue to run whether I like the temps or not.
Having said that, I did 3 kilometres with the group tonight. I finished in 17:14 which is a 5:46 km. For me, that is a fast pace. I'm impressed with my time. It means I just told Mother Nature to get stuffed on more than one level.

I had five servings of fruit today. Three servings of vegetables. Elevenish glasses of water. Unfortunately, I ate 224 calories more than I should have. Since I only burned 179 on my run, I did NOT create the kind of deficit that I've been trying to achieve. I have four more days left in this week.... I won't let today ruin the good work I did on Monday and Tuesday. Besides, I still have my three favourite GL classes and another long run to do. emoticon

    Penny, you are doing good! I think it is going to heat up this week - they are promising 100 f temps this week. I don't know about exercising in that kind of heat - but for me working is hard when it gets so hot. I will need to make sure I am hydrated. I am sure for you the temps will be warm also. good luck to you. be safe! Somebody invited me to a relay race next year. Hood to coast. you start and Mt hood and run to the Oregon Coast. 12 member team and each person rusn 3 legs - average 6 miles per leg. thanks so much for your friendship!!!!!!!!!

Time to blog

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Ok, so Sunday I recalculated my calories. Since then, I've gone over both days but only by 24 on Monday and 51 on Tuesday.
Monday was my "off" day and, I was feeling pretty crappy anyway, so I did what I planned to do - nothing.
Today, I scheduled, and completed a 5 km steady run. I also did W2D1 of the pushup challenge. 14/14/10/10/16 = 64
Tomorrow, I have another run planned. =) Can't wait.

  


End of Week Three

Monday, July 20, 2009

This morning when I stepped on the scale it said 130. That's almost a full ten pound gain since January. Oh hell no! That's not going to do at all. SO, I reset my goals and am now allotted 1550 calories. It's going to take quite a bit of dedication in the next few weeks but it is what it is. I've got to get back to my fighting weight. =)
My report for last week:
Monday - off
Tuesday - 4 km run (more furniture moving) - I didn't run but I did move furniture.
Wednesday - 4 km run - DONE
Thursday - 3 km run - DONE
Friday - BodyPump -DONE
Saturday - Awesome Abs -DONE
Sunday - 10 km run & BodyFlow - DONE & DONE!!

I only scored 3/7 for calories. I'm aiming for 5 this week.

Hopefully, I'll come up with some other goals by tomorrow morning.

I did it!!

Friday, July 10, 2009

My calories are good (great, even). Fats 24.8% Carbohydrates 56.5% Proteins 18.7% (almost bang on!!) and they should be 30%, 55% and 15 respectively.
I had NINE servings of fruit and vegetables.
I went to BodyPump.
I had two unplanned snacks but they didn't hurt my calorie goal.
I didn't have any cookies =)
I'm going to bed early tonight. Thankfully because, after last night and tonight, I feel like I've been through army training. LOL

YAY!!
