Goals, accomplishments and another list of "resolutions"

Sunday, January 07, 2007

Last week was awesome as I achieved every goal I set for myself. I got plenty of exercise; running three times, yoga twice, a nice long walk today. I ate well, too. I haven't gone over on my calories since 12/29. Here's the very BEST part. In the month of December I set a "miles" goal for running: 31. I beat it by almost 20 miles!

So here are my "resolutions" for this coming week:
~continue drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day
~run at least three times
~yoga twice (once at Renfrew w/Nicola)
~try one new workout dvd

More good news: my current weight is 126.5
My measurements are: waist 28, hips 38, thighs 22 (total lost to date overall 15.5")
I went shopping last Sunday and bought new pants...... size SEVEN!!
I feel great.

Tis the day before Christmas

Sunday, December 24, 2006

:) tis also the day before my 35th birthday. I thought I'd be a little more freaked out than this. Actually, until about 10 minutes ago I was pretty darn freaked. Then I had an epiphany of sorts.
I'm as fit, if not moreso than I was at 25. I've accomplished a lot in the last year that I can be proud of. I've changed my life. I've changed the way I eat, the way I feel about exercise, the way I feel about myself. I've matured.
So whatever the next year intends to throw at me, I say "Bring it on!".

Spark vs Mother Nature and other stuff.

Friday, December 15, 2006

One of the best things I've noticed since I've joined Spark is that PMS is way more tolerable. I don't know if it's because of the all of the changes that I've made since June or just one specific thing. Truth be told, I don't care. I'm just happy not being bloated and bitchy. I did gain three pounds between Sunday & Tuesday but they're gone now.
The other good thing (sort of) I noticed last night is the 15.5 inches I've lost now mean that I can take off my newest pants without undoing the button or zipper. Cool, except now I'm forced to do the one thing I hate most in the world...... clothes shopping. I need a personal shopper. While they're at it, they can finish my Christmas shopping. Bleh.

  


Moving on to Stage 4 - 12/11/06

Tuesday, December 12, 2006

So I took the plunge today and moved on to the next stage of Spark. Felt kind of reluctant but I can't hang out in stage 3 forever, right?
I also adjusted my weight goal to my present weight so that I can start the maintainance portion of my new life. I got a whole schwack of bonus calories to use now. Surprisingly enough, I still went over today. I guess I didn't think that date square through enough. Wrong snack choice.... lesson learned. Tomorrow is another day.

  


Bluenose Half in 160 days!

Sunday, December 10, 2006

I'm all signed up! Sadly, at this point, I'm the only one registered to run anything that weekend but hey, not everyone is a keener like me.
Tuesday I'll go sign up for the Half Clinic. I was thinking of going to Country Hills but I hear the routes they run are very hilly there and not a lot of fun. The Kensington clinic is being taught by Ryne Melcher who, apparently, is an Ultra Marathoner. I could probably learn a lot from him but I don't think I could run with him. Not sure it's worth it.
Decisions, decisions.
Considering the clinic @ Kensington starts in 2 days I guess I'd better decide fast.
