I totally missed updating yesterday with my end-of-week stats on last week's challenge. Basically, I missed one day of each item. Not bad, especially compared to the week before! :) And as of this morning's weigh-in, I am officially back down to... Read more

CARDIO - at least 30 minutes on 5 days

Well, I'm sure some weeks will go better than others; I did okay with some of the things I was supposed to do this week, but others - not so hot.
* Nutritional - consume at LEAST 8 glasses of water per day.
* Cardio - at LEAST 30 minutes ... Read more
One of my teams is doing a challenge from now until December. It's a team for Calgary, and we're competing with Edmonton. Each Monday, we check in with our current weight and find out the weekly challenge (and report in on how we did with last w... Read more
Yesterday afternoon, my family went for a hike at Lake Louise. We went up to the Lake Agnes Tea House. It's a 3.4km hike, all uphill.
It took me 2 hours 20 minutes, and I had to stop a lot, but I made it. Coming down was way easier.

I have managed to get myself a new job. I was let go from my position working with autistic children two weeks ago. I'd already been looking - it just wasn't working out - and had applied for this one right at the very beginning of August.

Well, I'm back. I'm not using the meal plan this time, because I'm doing an "experiment" (you can read my data etc. at geocities.com/janna_loui se ) wherein I'm going gluten casein free, as well as eliminating a few other th... Read more
Life has been crazy stressful for the past week and a half. Work-related, of course. Luckily, it's been resolved and I start with a new client tomorrow morning - wish me luck!
Of course, I haven't been in any state to really focus on my g... Read more
Missed writing yesterday - was late to bed.
Today was, overall, a good day. Didn't have to work this morning (client had a dentist appointment), so stayed home and did lots of nothing. Worked this afternoon, came home, did nothing, did so... Read more
Today went really well. I ate properly and was well within my limits on everything! Work was great, too. Had a meeting about the situation that nearly ruined my weekend, and all is well.
I'm just going to fill in my Mood Tracker, then do... Read more
I have now officially begun Stage Two!
Sorry about the lapse in blog entries. Friday was a perfectly awful day, and I wound up not bothering to track anything that day. Saturday started badly but I decided to make it a "me" day, and I was... Read more
Apparently I'm not as good at judging food as I thought; my experiment was a failure today - I ate WAY too much food! (I know because I'm still tracking what I eat.) So I'll try again tomorrow and again on Friday, and see how I do... and if it... Read more
Well, today was good. Somehow I didn't eat enough, but I wasn't starving so I guess it was okay.
I've decided to try going it without the meal plan, starting tomorrow. I kind of understand how it's all supposed to work, and I'll use some ... Read more
