Day 09 A picture that motivates you to do more

Wednesday, February 23, 2011



On Saturday I attended my first Shred Bootcamp. We started our workout with a warm up and then slid straight into burpees. Each and every exercise we did from then on was super challenging. I struggled but I did it. When I thought that I couldn't do another one, he'd push for one more and I'd do it.

He says he's coming back in the spring. In the next few months I will be trying my hardest to get to a point where, when he returns to Calgary, I can go and not feel the struggle. I'm sure it will always be "hard" - it's Tommy Europe after all - but I don't want the same "kill me know, please" feeling that I had on Saturday. Next time I'll be smart and schedule a post-Tommy massage for the afternoon of the workout.

    It's inspiring that as well as you did (and as quickly as you recovered) that you want to do even better the next time.

    Wonderful blog and great incentive and reminder to be in the best shape you can to tackle that class in the spring...feeling like a champ!

The workout is impressive...I'd be asking for a massage 20 mins into the workout!

Day 08 - A picture of your favourite color

Tuesday, February 22, 2011



My favourite colour is purple. Especially lilacs.
Sometimes, it describes my mood, too. It's that mad/sad feeling, ya know?



Never did get my massage this weekend. I woke up this morning and felt so much better. No pain, no stiffness, nothing. I'm thankful that it passed on it's own because it means my fitness level is allowing me to recover all by myself.
Good thing, too because I have a run to do tomorrow night emoticon

Day 07 - A picture of your most treasured item

Sunday, February 20, 2011

Alright, #1 is definitely my sons. The second is my ring that Paul gave me to wear but I cannot get a decent pic of it. SO! I went with #3:


In case it's difficult to read, it's the "finisher's certificate" that my pacer made me for completing my first half marathon and the medal I received when I crossed the finish line. emoticon

    Obviously your boys are your most treasured "item", and the ring from Paul is certainly sentimental.

But this certificate? You've EARNED it!

    good pick,Penny! when I read your blogs I make a mental note of what that 'item' is for me and my engagement and wedding band are the 'items' for this blog.

    P, I thought about them being *items* too but then I thought of how they are so treasured. I knew the post meant something *materialistic* but I still went with your boys.

    Definitely your sons are treasures but am anxious to see what the more "material" item that you picked...I am really looking forward to these blogs..so much fun!

    I was thinking that but I'm trying not to think of them as "items" and come up with something more materialistic. I've got it narrowed down to two things. Will post pics later.

Day 06 - A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day

Day 06 - A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day


Ok, this might sound a little dramatic but - just for one day - I'd like to trade places with my sons. I'd like them to know how frustrating it is to not be heard. How tiring it is to pick up after them. How much work it to look after the two of them. I think they'd have a better appreciation of what I do for them. Then again, my mother probably thought the same thing when I was their age. emoticon

Day 05 - A picture of your favorite animal
