New Challenge - Day 3

Monday, January 10, 2011

N~Calorie range is 1560-1910 - Today, with 5 freggies included, my calorie count is 1983 so I'm a little over.
E~Exercise - 20 minutes done. I'm opting out of the gym program today. I did 15 minutes of tobogganing (too fricken cold) and a 98 minute run on the treadmill. I feel done.
W~Wellness - I slipped up and grazed through 2 extra crescent rolls BUT I realized it right away and didn't eat the final two so that's something... I feel like this has been a good day. My meals were planned and everything fit into my calorie range. Even with the slip, I am only 73 calories over. Considering I just burned over 1200 on the treadmill, I'm okay with that.
15 points.

It snowed here yesterday and today. When we left for running this morning, the snow was drifted across the roads. By the time we were half way to the Running Room, I knew that I would be renewing my friendship with the treadmill sometime today. A 12 km run that, on a regular LSD day, would take me 84 minutes took me 98! When I realized that I was going into overtime I started to get a little loopy. I'm NOT a treadmill runner and I now have a new appreciation for anyone who CAN run on the dreadful things. All the power to ya. Hopefully, it'll be another 3 years before I have to get on that thing again. Paul's doing his run now. I'm *supposed* to be showering but I'm sparking.. shhhh.
It's getting late tho' so I *should* get to bed. I still need to make a lunch, too. I guess I'm outta here.
Til next time!

    I hate the treadmill too - it's awful. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who is slower on the treadmill than on the road. I have a couple of friends who swear the treadmill is easier and are faster when they use it. I hope you get some better running weather soon!

NEW Challenge - Day 2 & other options.

Sunday, January 09, 2011

N~Calorie range is 1560-1910 - Today, with 5 freggies included, my calorie count is 1801.
E~Exercise - 20 minutes done. Option 2 and 3 of the BLC15 gym program completed.
W~Wellness - Well, after a relaxing morning at the grocery store, a good meal and a movie night with the boys, I feel much better. I didn't do ANY emotional eating today. I feel good about my food choices, including the two pieces of chocolate, and I did more exercise than I thought I would.

Five points for N
Five points for E and
Five points for W.
Tomorrow morning I'm going for a 12 km run. There was a nasty storm here today. Hopefully, the 70 km/hr winds will die down and I won't blow away. Between that and the -25C scheduled for tomorrow, I'm a little worried that my runners will not show up in the morning. Guess we'll see.

NEW Challenge

Saturday, January 08, 2011

N~Nutrition Know your Calorie Range and Stay within it, include 5 Freggies/Day.
E~Exercise Get up and MOVE! Exercise a Minimum of 20 minutes Today.
Give yourself a Grade and Try to Beat that Tomorrow!
N~Calorie range is 1560-1910 Today is my non-calorie range day. I pledged not to exceed my range by more than 500 today and I am 2215 for the day. That includes popcorn and coffee crisp bites at the movie. (305+) It also included MORE than 5 Freggies.
E~Exercise - Option 2 of the BLC gym done - this is one of my two regularly scheduled rest days otherwise.
W~Wellness - I logged everything. I made healthy choices when I ate out (twice) today. My calorie intake may be over my "goal" but that was the plan and even with take out and movie snacks, I'm only 272 over. Considering that I've been planning this all week and created a 2000+ calorie deficit over that time... I'm golden.
My grade for me: B+

Thursday 50/50/50

Friday, January 07, 2011

My first weigh-in with the Dragons went well. I've lost three pounds since New Years and now I'll be working on moving closer to 126(ish). Since then, I've been within my calorie range EVERY SINGLE DAY. I'm so happy with myself. I haven't been this consistent since hit my goal weight six months after starting Spark. If I have, I can't remember.
I did a few strength exercises as part of the BLC15 and a few more as an additional challenge - 50 pushups, 50 crunches & 50 squats. My core/lower bod is going to despise me tomorrow. I think I'll wear my Ugalikes so I don't have to bend over to tie my shoes.

    Billie, I've joined BLC15 on Spark and one of the teams, my team, is the "Jade Dragons". It's really cool, very challenging, very inspiring... I'm hoping to either maintain my weight and lose inches or (BONUS) lose a few of each. So far, I'm right on track.

Four days, four stars

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

Ok, the gold stars on my spark calendar are fast becoming my new "old" obsession. The good news is, we're four days into the month of January and I have four of them! I've tracked everything, exercised as planned and even stayed true to the plan on the weekend.
Tomorrow is my first official BLC15 Jade Dragon weigh in. I'm actually excited. Weirdness. I can't remember the last time I was excited about stepping on the scale. More good news.
Time for lights out. I promised myself a minimum of 6.5 hours of sleep a night and I'm going to get it!
