Oh yeah ! It's a summer favorite. I walked it down every summer for as long as I can rememver. Today, I shared the trip with my boyfriend and a friend who's succeeded to lose her teenage years belly. She's fit today and she's a great example to me. Plus, she's super nice and I love her a lot =) It's funny how life goes sometimes because we had lost touch for a while. After high school (she was younger), we didn't keep on seeing each other. And sometimes a year or two ago, we bumped into each other at the grocery store and.. =) Life has strange ways and I am very thankful for her.
We now have a barbecue stove and we are eating grilled vegetables like every day ! It's funny how it goes because we now cook together. He just made me noticed tonight. =)
And we skipped running =/ well let me say, the 3 hours walk down was a bit tiring !
Tomorrow's a new day. And next week is my birthday!!! =) Oh yeah!
Hope you had a sparkterrific weekend ! ☼

My boyfriend challenged me to run with him on September 7, at an event called "Grand Défi" (means Big/Grand Challenge). He will run 8km, trying to beat last year's time and I will run/jog 4 km, trying... my best! =)
So yesterday, I accepted and arranged a 6-weeks training schedule so I don't look too stupid on that day. So far so good =)
I also just received SP Cookbook. I am impressed. It is not just a cookbook, it's a cooking "bible", it's amazing! It's a 15$ well spent.
On the other hand, I did fitness tests yesterday and didn't score very high.
1-Mile Walk Test : 15 m 35 s
Push Ups (As much as possible in 1 minute) : 14
Steps (After 3 minutes what's your heart rate) : 175 bpm
Crunches : to come!
All of these results are poor or very poor considering the chart I use. In a moth or so, before doing the 4-km run, I will redo them. See if I improved.
I went for a Tim Horton's breakfast sandwich... not so good BUT I didn't have a potatoe or a muffin with it, which is good improvement.
And I wanted to go for ice cream yesterday... but didn't! I have to save calories for my birthday dinner ! Talking of my birthday, it's pretty soon.... and we are going to play volleyball the whole afternoon - it is my idea of fun anyway lol =)
Ok that was random !!! Hope you're not lost.
Thank you for reading me, your comments are highly appreciated. They fuel my motivation =)

Yesterday, I went for a bike ride. I have not been biking a lot lately. That is why I am so happy I did yesterday. I didn't bike for as long as I should have but, 17 km is better than nothing. Tonight, I plan on mowing my friend's lawn and go for a small bike ride.
Slow wins the race right ?
I think I missing an ingredient here : commitment. Daily baby steps. Getting there.

School is OVER ! After five intense years, finally, I finished. You have no idea how relieved I am. It's been an hectic journey with a very sad and frustrating end. But at least, I graduated, I won't have to see them ever again and life will finally be easier.
Today is my first full week at work as a full time employee. I am very happy - the place is neat and I have lot of work to do. And the people are nice. Really. It's going to be fun.
As for last week, it's been a very difficult week. A very stressful and sad week. And I cope really badly. I ate so much! And I didn't exercice a lot either. I really need to convince myself that overeating IS NOT a good way to cope. For the couple of minutes it lasts, it's all good. But right after, I feel guilty and I am quite disgusted with myself.
I started with a small walk around the block this morning and I plan on going on a 30minutes walk this noon and probably go mowing my friend's lawn!
Hope you are off to a good week!
