January so far...

Sunday, January 16, 2011

2011 so far has been reminiscent of my first few months on spark. My enthusiasm is back & I've been inside my calorie range 12/16 days. Two of those four days outside of my range were by less than 50 calories. I'm even strength training on a fairly regular basis, thanks to my Dragon challenge.
Oh! and this makes my third year at my goal weight/range. emoticon emoticon

I just have to keep this momentum rolling...

Last chance workout

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Tonight our BLC15 Dragon team had a little last chance workout of our own. Simple really, 30 minutes (or more) of cardio/intentional exercise. I'm happy to report that, with the help of my HM training group, I completed 37 minutes during our 5 km run tonight.

I'm still within my calorie range, too. Right on target for my goal of being there 5/7 days a week for January. In fact, I've only not been inside my calorie range twice since the new month began. Fruit, veggies and water are all on track, too.

Feels like a whole new me for this whole new year. Let's hope this reflects well in tomorrows weigh-in.

NEW Challenge - Day 4

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

N~Calorie range is 1560-1910 - I scored a perfect five on this today. Not only did I get my freggies for the day, I also drank all my water AND have calories left over. 16 of them. LOL
E~Exercise - 30 minutes of strength training doing Option 2 and 3 of the BLC15 gym program. 5 points again!
W~Wellness -Breakfast, lunch, dinner and three snacks. I even treated myself to a small piece of dark chocolate for no other reason (no emotion) than "just because" and I feel pretty good about how things went today. 5 points!

Total for the day 15 points.

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.
